1  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Maricopa County, Ariz. Sheriff Joe Arpaio losing in new poll on: Today at 02:32:45 am
God I hope so. Arapaio is literally a horrible human specimen.

Even though I actually agree with Joe Arpaio on a few issues, he's a horrible human being and is over 80 years old.

He framed a poor schmuck for a fake assassination attempt that didn't actually happen.
2  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: LA-SEN: David Duke running for Senate on: Today at 01:56:45 am
I'm curious if he'll carry LaSalle Parish

Maybe. The real question is if he will carry Orleans Parish.

wat

I'm just joking, but seriously, I wonder what percentage of the vote he's going to get in Orleans Parish and what percentage of the black vote he's going to get statewide.

If Hillary Clinton somehow won Texas, would Donald Trump be screwed?

McAullife needs to pick the candidate with the best shot at dispatching Cuccinelli or Comstock, both in 2017 and 2018, and that's either Gerry Connolly or Mark Herring to me.

Quote
“Everybody will be watching Virginia,” said Dan Scandling, a longtime aide to former Republican congressman Frank R. Wolf. “It’ll be a referendum on the presidency. Always is, always has been. And both sides would pour ungodly amounts of money into the race to win the seat or hold the seat.”

Oh god.
Don Beyer is who I think McAuliffe would appoint (NOVA Congressman, former Lt. Governor). And if there's a Senate race in 2017, Wittman could jump into this one since he's behind Gillespie in the governor race.

Don Beyer is one option McAuliffe could choose.

From what I understand Northam wants to be Governor and Herring is focused on getting reelected as AG so they are probably unlikely.

Alot of Democrats have promoted Bobby Scott but he is far too liberal to win outside his district.

The VA GOP actually has a decent bench. Comstock is a possible choice, and I could easily see Wittman jumping the Governor's race to run for Senate.

Also since they are now both out of the job come November Randy Forbes and Scott Riggell are interesting possiblites too. Even Ken Cuccinelli maybe esp. since he is starting to look like a moderate hero out of this whole mess with Trump.

I doubt that Scott Rigell would angle for Tim Kaine's Senate seat because he's done with Congress as a whole.

Heheheh, you said "dominate".

It's funny how before 2006, which was not too long ago, New Hampshire has never elected any women to either house of Congress.
7  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What is going on with our school system? on: July 20, 2016, 05:51:13 pm
Maybe the problem isn't so much schools as it is kids exposing themselves for their yearbook photos?

In Mesa, some high school kid who was part of a sports team exposed his junk for a yearbook picture. The people working on the yearbook didn't notice the prank until several days later. So, they called the police and the kid got 69 counts of indecent exposure.

Why did they bother calling the police on the kid? It's not like he punched someone in the face or something. I thought that there was something called "statute of limitations".

The only people with any common sense in this story were the fellow students who didn't make a big deal out of it.
8  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: How many terms will Maggie Hassan serve as Senator? on: July 20, 2016, 05:27:28 pm
No; Hassan is an Irish name as well.

That's true.

There's also the last name Lee which is both an Asian name and an Anglo name.
9  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / What is going on with our school system? on: July 19, 2016, 06:46:38 pm
Seriously, what is going on here? If you follow the news, then you'll learn that school faculty members contact the authorities over petty stuff like a kid in New Jersey making inappropriate comments regarding brownies or a high school student exposing himself for a yearbook picture in Mesa, AZ (the guy got 69 charges of indecent exposure). Also, there are a zillion other instances of faculty members not dealing with stuff at school in a proper manner.

> implying New Hampshire doesn't secede to become the Women's Democrtaic Republic of New Femshire

And then Maggie Hassan builds a wall entirely around New Hampshire and makes Donald Trump pay for it (assuming that Chris Sununu is unavailable because he fled to Maine to crash on Paul LePage's couch).
11  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: DAE think Climbing Maggie Hassan will win in a landslide? on: July 19, 2016, 06:25:22 pm
Maggie Hassan will not only defeat Kelly Ayotte, but she will drain her lifeforce like a vampire.

This! LOL

13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Presidential election with fictional characters: David Palmer versus John Keeler on: July 17, 2016, 02:10:42 pm
David Palmer and John Keeler are both fictional characters from the TV show 24. David Palmer gets elected President of the United States after Season 1 and gets challenged for reelection in Season 3 by Senator John Keeler of Minnesota. David Palmer drops out of the race because of the deaths of two characters. What would the electoral map look like?

Have you guys ever heard the expression "A day is a lifetime in politics"?

Let's assume that Maggie Hassan defeats Kelly Ayotte this year. There's no way to predict for sure if she would win reelection. 2022 could potentially be an ultra-Republican wave year and the 2020s could be a Republican era in the same way that the 1930s were a Democratic era.
15  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: David Duke Weighing Challange to Steve Scalise on: July 13, 2016, 07:10:25 pm
Dopey David Duke thinks he can ever get elected! Sad!

Always bet on Duke!

Hassan will win on the backs of the male vote.

There's men in NH?

Actually, they are all post-operation transmen.

Why do (a lot of) people assume that if someone has a Middle Eastern name that he or she is a Muslim and/or Arab? It's ridiculous. For example, there are millions of Arab Christians. You've also got Iranians who have Middle Eastern names, but are not Arabs.

What's next? People thinking that Rahm Emanuel is a Muslim?
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Which state has the worst name? on: July 08, 2016, 05:48:19 pm
I'd mention Nevada, because nobody outside the state seems to know how to pronounce it correctly.

Yes, the correct way to pronounce it is 'Neh-vahd-duh' (the second syllable rhymes with "bad").

I was born in Reno and I lived there for almost all of my childhood.

I remember how in Oceans Eleven, Matt Damon's character mispronounces the name of the state even though he was posing as someone from the Nevada Gaming Commission.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Your reaction if this is the map. on: July 05, 2016, 06:50:55 pm
My eyes would widen to the size of dinner plates and I would say "I don't f***ing believe this! There's no way that Donald Trump would win 49 states or Washington, D.C. for that matter!"
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: McCain blames America for Afghanistan on: July 02, 2016, 12:12:52 pm
He literally keeps shooting himself in the foot, ugh.

I don't think you're using the word 'literally' correctly.

I think that Ann Kirkpatrick defeats John McCain in a very close race forty-something to forty-something percent.
22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What the hell is wrong with Florida democrats? on: July 01, 2016, 08:40:59 pm
Warning to state parties: Never, ever, ever, ever, ever lose a national election by 537 votes. 536, if you must. 538 perhaps. But never 537. The PTSD will last 15 years and counting.

Why is the Florida Democratic Party getting all the flak? If the Democrats in Nevada, Colorado, Missouri, Ohio, and New Hampshire worked harder, then Dubya wouldn't have won.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Which state has the worst name? on: June 30, 2016, 06:22:04 pm
mariana post?  mariana postal? 

While we're at it, wouldn't AR be more appropriate for Arizona?  You guys are bigger than Arkansas.  You could kick their asses and take AR away from them if you really wanted to. 

We've always preferred 'AZ', but Arkansas became a state before us, so they got 'AR'. On another note, we can take 'AR', Arkansas can take 'AK', and Alaska can get stuck with 'AS'.
24  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: NV-03 DCCC Rosen Ahead on: June 30, 2016, 06:16:57 pm
If I recall correctly, Jacky Rosen is the head of a synagogue, right? Very interesting profile, and I don't think one that's been in Congress before. I'd like to see her be elected there.

Yes, it's an interesting profile. I've thought that heads of synagogues would be male. I wonder what branch she is part of (Reform?).

There are rabbis that have run for Congress in recent years and lost for some reason.
25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Which state has the worst name? on: June 30, 2016, 06:07:56 pm
Surprised nobody mentioned West Virginia. They should have named it something original.

They actually considered naming it Kanawha, but for whatever reason, they went with West Virginia.

Here's an off-topic question: why is "MP" the postal abbreviation for the Northern Mariana Islands? It would make more sense if it was "NI" or "MR".
