Lolol:

Fox host Jesse Watters announces vacation following backlash over Ivanka Trump remark

http://thehill.com/homenews/news/330816-fox-host-jesse-watters-announces-vacation-following-backlash-over-ivanka-trump

A vacation at Fox News means RIP Jesse!

Is he going to get fired and receive a golden parachute like Bill O'Reilly?
2  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: GA-06 runoff poll on: Today at 09:43:15 am
I wonder what would happen if the Republicans aired a dog-whistle campaign ad in which they hinted that Jon Ossoff is Jewish without actually saying it.

Handel, probably 56-44.

I'm curious about your reasoning here. This presumes that either a number of Ossoff voters drop out between the primary and the runoff, or that Handel consolidates the votes all other Republicans got *and* brings in new voters, or both.

A portion of the Democrats that voted in the primary might not even show up and Karen Handel consolidates the Republican share of the vote.

Seeing Michigan vote for Donald Trump has been a shocker since that state seems to pull through for Democrats in the end.


Democrats were way too overconfident about PA and that stupid Blue Wall crap.
There was a huge trend towards the GOP between 2008 and 2012 which should have set off big warning signs. Obama only won PA by 5 while winning nationally by 4. That was a pathetic margin compared to the national average. The West Virginianization of SW PA is only going to get worse.

I don't get the logic behind calling a bunch of swing states the "blue wall".

The reason is because they kept voting Democrat in presidential elections for a long time (over twenty years).

Let's say that the Access Hollywood tape was never broadcast on television. How would the presidential election have played out?

I keep forgetting that Rush Limbaugh even exists until I read an article about him.

His show is like a zombie that limps along.
6  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Who's the real First Lady? on: April 26, 2017, 11:49:36 am
Since Melania Trump spends so much time in New York and Ivanka Trump is always by her father's side, does that mean that Ivanka is the real First Lady? It makes so much sense now.

Feeling pretty chapped right now.  Long story.  Anyway, it occurs to me that I have never seen this poll.  Not to say we haven't had it, but I haven't seen it.  I've seen polls about abortion rights repeatedly, and polls about what you're wearing or whether you think Laura Bush is hotter than Mira Sorvino, and polls about whether you prefer ketchup, catsup, or none of the above, but I don't think I've seen a wet underwear poll.  It's high time we had one.

Mine is very wet and stinky and it's chafing me at the moment.  Probably I should not waste any more time posting about it.  Every minute spent here could be a minute spent washing myself and my underwear.


Do you have any pictures?

I thought that Jared Polis built up most of his wealth. From what I've learned about him, he's eccentric.

I refuse to call members of ISIS human beings. They deserve whatever happens to them.

I have a vision in which everyone in the Middle East comes together and uses ISIS fighters as piņatas.

I never liked him. He was an overpaid narcissist who harassed women.

HP.

A naughty little racist and sexist loofah player is what he is.

Is there any real evidence that he's a racist?

Considering your signature, the Daily Show released a video after O'Reilly's departure detailing some of the racist statements he said.

Plus his protege is Jesse "Let's go to Chinatown" Watters.

I did not see the episode until very recently.
11  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Have you seen the Power Rangers movie? on: April 24, 2017, 11:09:57 am
I saw this movie recently out of compulsion and it was just terrible.

The only reason to see it is nostalgia and the half-assed humor.
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why Aren't Pennsylvania Politicians More Known? on: April 23, 2017, 12:23:35 pm
This is probably completely irrelevant to the thread, but when I ran into Congressman Chuck Fleischmann at the Capitol Visitor Center last year, he assumed that I was from Tennessee because I pointed out how he was first elected in 2010.
13  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Now Sean Hannity facing sexual harassment accusations at Fox News on: April 23, 2017, 11:30:35 am
Who knew that getting a bunch of "traditionalist" dudes together and giving them a platform for their outdated, misogynist views might lead to a culture of mistreating female colleagues and using their influence and standing to try to establish dominance over them?

I mean, not that Atlas is really the place to make such a diatribe, but at least we have the good sense to separate our members hundreds of miles from one another.

What? Are you saying that Atlas members would sexually harass women if we weren't spread miles apart?
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why Aren't Pennsylvania Politicians More Known? on: April 22, 2017, 11:54:11 am
Here Atlas goes again grossly overestimating the name recognition of governors and senators. Mitch McConnell might not even Crack 50%... Cuomo and Feinstein are probably in the 30s in name recognition polls, and only because they're from big states. You have to either run for President, have a sex scandal, or at least be a Sunday show regular to get national name recognition as a politician.

Didn't Devin Nunes, Adam Schiff, Jim Hines, and other politicians gain name recognition from being on the news frequently?

NOTE: My family and I are Jewish and use the word "mensch." So no one be offended.

. . .       is this really necessary?

What's wrong with the word "mensch"?

What about Tom Ridge? Does he count?

The Teletubbies were made for 0-2 year old children

Who the hell made that show? The Teletubbies couldn't actually speak.

If Rob Quist and Jon Ossoff win in Montana and Georgia respectively, how do the Republicans react and how does Donald Trump respond on Twitter?

Were these states lean-Republican states before Bill Clinton finally won them?
21  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Emma Morano, Last Living Link to the 1800's, dies at 117 on: April 16, 2017, 02:07:33 pm
Reminds me of the fact that the last surviving witness of the Lincoln assassination died in the 50s.

It's not completely surprising since there are Civil War veterans that survived into the fifties and widows of Civil War veterans that survived into the 2000s.

My father's grandfather was born in the nineteenth century. I wonder what it's like to meet someone born in that century.
23  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Opinion of the Fast and Furious series on: April 16, 2017, 11:10:56 am
I just saw Fast and Furious 8 and it ended with a cliffhanger because they are apparently planning on having a ninth installment.

It's a fun series to watch even though it's unrealistic and they break the laws of physics frequently.

I wouldn't be surprised if they made Fast and the Furious 20 with a bunch of new actors and Vin Diesel becoming the godfather of the family (notice how they stretch the definition of family).

The best character, and only redeemable aspect was the Baby Sun.

Besides that:

When I was little they were always on before Sesame Street so I always sat through it and I hated it because no aspect of it made sense and I couldn't understand what they were saying.

The show is/was a total piece of s**t just like Barney the Dinosaur.

Sesame Street is okay and the characters on the show are likable. I mean, who didn't like Oscar the Grouch or the Cookie Monster?

True or not the number of child abusers that end up in elected office is disturbingly high. And nothing can really be done about it.

Wanna feel worse? It probably only signifies that you know a child abuser because they are so effing common

*vomits*

Remember when we had one as Speaker of the House?
