#kysen race remarkable. Mo' w #Grimes. Her advisers convinced she'll win. Volunteers flooding in. #McConnell grim, pressing. But KY is red.

This still true by any chance? Hope it is...

It's heartbreakingly brutal to look at how WV, KY, and AR stand out on that map and wonder what might have been...

Remember, Mississippi had its state-based Exchange online until The Sheriff's Deputy Who Literally Converses With Jesus decided to stop supporting it just to stick it to Obama.

Even if the Republican slant on her words were an accurate quotation, she still would have been correct. Had hypothetical President John Edwards enacted all of Obama's same policies, he would be much more popular across the South today. Or actual president Bill Clinton.

Nunn winning outright next Tuesday would qualify as an upset, but is still plausible enough to discuss.

McDaniel has 6 days left if he wants to pull the Ultimate Troll Job and follow his campaign manager/bedmate's lead and endorse Childers...

This was like a year ago, Jeopardy's clear and consistent rules were followed, and the kid would have lost anyway if they'd made a special exception just for him.

In other words, who cares? Props to Jeopardy for being consistent.

Damn. It's supposed to be Republicans who royally screw up races like this, not us...

If cheerleading is, then marching band has to be too, right?

Only like 20,000 people in Kentucky actually even work in the coal industry? Why do people care so much about this? I wish Grimes had the guts to tell them that their industry is destroying the planet and the sooner is vanishes into history the better.

Or she could tactfully point out how the Democrats are going to be a lot more helpful to the suddenly-unemployed people who used to work in the coal industry once it goes away than the Republicans would be.

Hoover seems like the obvious answer here, and I also picked TR.

From a long-term perspective, Iraq.
From a short-term perspective, Katrina.

C if he wins, F if he loses.

A D if he loses. When did anyone win on abortion on any side of the issue at this level anyways? I mean Santorum had abortion as like #3 or 4, right? And Tom Coburn ran on Personhood on Steroids but that wasn't his main issue.

Sigh. "Personhood" and abortion are completely separate issues, as much as the less scrupulous Republicans try to mingle them.

Does 538 only project the first round?

No, their number is the overall probability of winning, whether it's November or January.

Thought this was a pretty good summation of this year-long circus:

Quote
The Cochran-McDaniel race was one of the nastiest in state history. The looming Nov. 4 general election has been overshadowed really overwhelmed by a Republican primary that featured nursing home break-ins, courthouse lock-ins, criminal accusations and investigations, a suicide and litigation.

Looks like he might be ready to call it a day:

Quote
McDaniel in statement said, "Republicans are still left wanting justice" by the decision and said he hopes "conservatives in Mississippi will view this decision as a driving factor to get involved in Republican politics."

Neither McDaniel nor his lead attorney Mitch Tyner answered definitively on Friday whether the ruling will put end to his trying to overturn the election, but McDaniel said, "now is time to turn the page and work to enact true conservative change." Tyner said that while he disagreed with the ruling, "we are glad the Supreme Court finally ruled and Mississippi conservatives can move forward into 2015."

The Mississippi Supreme Court has ruled against McDaniel:

Now the question is whether he'll appeal to Federal Court or just let it go.
95  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Academic shenanigans at UNC on: October 23, 2014, 06:44:36 pm
Stories like this are why the NCAA should actually drop all of the academic requirements for athletes. If they just want to piss-dick around for 4 years and play football, let them. If they don't get their degree, that's on them. At the same time, drop the special treatment too.
96  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Modern Humans Interbred with Neanderthals According to 45,000 Year-Old Genome on: October 23, 2014, 06:42:09 pm
Also worth pointing out that it's entirely inaccurate when people use "Neanderthal" as an epithet for "stupid." Our best research suggests they were just as intelligent as humans.

And as we are all (except full-blooded Africans) descended partially from them, we're just insulting ourselves.
97  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Do Democrats Always Win Close Elections? on: October 23, 2014, 06:35:14 pm
Probably a coincidence, but could be a result of a superior GOTV operation.

Also kinda arbitrary to cut it off at 1-point victory, rather than say, a 1.1-point victory, or a 0.8-point victory, either of which would make the D/R breakdown closer.

Early human migrations / interactions with Neanderthals and extinct megafauna really fascinate me for some reason.

She was/is a terrible candidate running against a good one. It needs to be the other way around for Democrats to win federal office in West Virginia.
