I don't believe in the death penalty.

Just throw this guy in prison for the rest of his life.

My condolences to Azard Baksh and his poodle.

Isn't this the same state in which a judge picked a fight with a public defender and got reelected?

I seriously doubt that Donald Trump is going to move to New Jersey.

Arizona is slowly turning purple, so there's that too.

I hate the X-Men franchise, every other line of dialogue is "humans hates us, and were the next step in evolution!" Seriously, at least when marvel copies themselves the lines differ from each other. That said, I actually enjoyed Deadpool, and The Wolverine.

It's too bad that we didn't get to see more mutants in The Wolverine and Deadpool.

Joe Donnelly.

I didn't think of this as an example because Democrats occasionally get lucky with Indiana senate races and Richard Mourdock never had a lock on the election.

While New Hampshire might be a blue state, it's not that blue (John Kerry victory notwithstanding). It's still a swing state and barely went for George W. Bush in 2000.

Even if McCain ends up winning, Kirkpatrick will have made it a close election.

It would be slightly amusing if Trump wins Arizona, but McCain loses to Kirkpatrick.

What are some good examples of sacrificial lambs that ended up victorious?

How about Scott Brown? Chris Coons (before Mike Castle lost the primary)? Mark Begich?
10  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / X-Men: Apocalypse on: May 18, 2016, 07:52:24 pm
Is it too early to do a thread on this movie?

This is definitely not going to be the last X-Men movie, especially since they have a whole mountain of characters in the comics that they still haven't used like Mister Sinister, Legion, etc.

I predict that Apocalypse is going to have the X-Men by the balls, but then Wolverine steals the scene and saves the day.
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Lawmakers to hold hearing onboard the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower on: May 17, 2016, 02:26:30 pm
http://www.stripes.com/news/us/lawmakers-to-stage-hearing-aboard-uss-dwight-d-eisenhower-1.409107

This is unprecedented. They could've held it in Washington, D.C. and saved some taxpayer dollars in the process. Some people claimed it's a photo op for their reelection campaigns.

I wonder how the crew members of the Eisenhower feel about this.

Maybe she could run for Governor of New York.
13  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Realistic ceiling for Senate Democrats? on: May 09, 2016, 08:30:49 pm
I have a tough time imagining that Katie McGinty will win. Pat Toomey has too much name recognition.
14  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: VA-02: Rep. Randy Forbes (R) Facing Competitive Primary on: May 09, 2016, 04:33:01 pm
I'm stationed in the Hampton Roads area and Randy Forbes is one of the few Republican congressmen that I actually like. He is for having a strong Navy. I'm probably going to support him.

Scott Taylor is criticizing Forbes for not living in the district even though there is not much of a difference between Chesapeake and Virginia Beach. It's not like when Hillary Clinton carpetbagged into New York when running for the Senate.

The same guy who said that Republicans shouldn't give money to gay Republican candidates because they're gay? Yeah, sounds like a really likeable guy.

Boot him, Virginia.

Did Forbes actually say that? If so, I might have to cross him off of my short list of Republican congressmen that I actually like. Do I need to cross off Dave Brat and Scott Rigell too?
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Donald Trump shot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue on: May 09, 2016, 02:42:46 pm
If he shot a white male Southerner? No. Otherwise yes.

What about Dennis Hastert?
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / If Donald Trump shot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue on: May 09, 2016, 02:36:07 pm
Would he get more support?

Make all bathrooms unisex, problem solved.

better yet, get rid of bathrooms altogether. No more controversy!

If we actually go with this idea, where are people supposed to take a s**t?
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Harris Wofford's incredible (love) story on: May 02, 2016, 12:11:27 pm
If they were BOTH wrinkly old men or if the younger one is at least 52, then it wouldn't really be an issue.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Harris Wofford's incredible (love) story on: April 28, 2016, 09:53:18 am
According to the half plus seven rule, the minimum age for a 90-year old's partner is 52.  Obviously that's a big difference versus 40, but there's still a 38 year gap between 52 and 90.  At that point the 'rule' clearly breaks down.

Of course, we're all assuming that a 90-year old is looking for any kind of sexual relationship from their partner.

What exactly do you mean when the "half plus seven" rule breaks down?
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Harris Wofford's incredible (love) story on: April 26, 2016, 11:42:21 am
Ugh what a half plus seven violating creep.

You do realise that 'rule' isn't actually the law?

Uh, who cares? It's legal for me to f[inks] 16-year olds in Minnesota but that doesn't make it OK.

What? You mean the age of consent in Minnesota is 16?

Oh my God.
22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Harris Wofford's incredible (love) story on: April 25, 2016, 07:46:14 pm
Harris Wofford's lover is not even half of his age and that's the only part that is disturbing.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe restores voting rights for 206,000 ex-felons on: April 25, 2016, 01:25:06 pm
http://www.richmond.com/news/virginia/government-politics/article_771db279-34d6-5a3d-9557-a417a8afb212.html

I guess that the Republicans in Virginia should start figuring out how to pander to the ex-felon vote.
24  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: 2018 MA GOV Race on: April 24, 2016, 09:47:05 am
Martha Coakley is an A-list candidate I could see running!

I doubt that they are going to even nominate her after losing to Scott Brown and Charlie Baker.
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Terri Bonoff running against Erik Paulsen (R-MN) on: April 23, 2016, 02:08:53 pm
She has name-recognition, a record as a state senator, and she could benefit from higher turnout whether or not Donald Trump is the nominee.
