At the last measurement it was healthy, but lower than average at 118/68. It's probably higher right now after the meal I just had, but that's basically where I'm at.

Portman's fine by me (and if we're going by avatar state, so is Kirk). So FF.
1703  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: WA-04: Doc Hastings retiring on: February 14, 2014, 09:54:52 am
I'd love for Maureen Walsh to run. I'm sure she'd have little chance of winning the primary, unfortunately. I'm also sure the Ds will put up a candidate. They actually got within a few points of taking out Hastings in 2006 and within 10 points in 2008.

Wikipedia says Hastings won 60-40 in 2006 and and 63-37 in 2008; basically, this is a noncompetitive district, though it used to be up until the mid-1990s (Hastings was kept within single digits for the last time in 1996).

The '90s in most places, but really it depends on where.

Joy at the nice weather, and perhaps a nice cup of tea.

Bush, at the time, and with hindsight. The attitude towards such a vote depends on the amount of hindsight allowed.

1710  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: WA: Inslee suspends death penalty on: February 11, 2014, 06:44:15 pm
I'm pretty confident this is because of how Inslee personally feels about the issue, and not for any gain he could gain from it -- WA definitely has solid majority for capital punishment, and it's not like there are groups out there willing to throw gold at elected officials for anti-capital punishment action. I hope Inslee loses narrowly in 2016, so as to discourage other Governors from taking such action.

No one votes on the death penalty.

I'm not entirely sure that's true, but even if it is it's beside the point. As long as politicians think it is, they'll act accordingly.

Just confirms what I concluded months ago -he apparently has no presidential ambitions as a Republican.  Otherwise he would not have had the courage to say this. 

Really? Because I think he's playing the long game.

Diagnosing political opponents is never a good idea.

Rauner didn't show up so he won't get my vote.

How much do you think this will actually hurt Rauner?

FF as a protest vote against Snowstalker.

I doubt she'll be challenged any more seriously than Cantwell was in 2012.

1719  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of the Oklahoma City school system on: February 09, 2014, 05:22:06 pm
This past Wednesday we had school in spite of a 6-inch overnight snowfall, which for the most part had not yet been cleared from the roads (we did get an apology afterwards from the Superintendent saying it ought to have been a Snow Day, though! Everyone felt better) and then on Friday we had school again in spite of a temperature of -2F (-19 in normal person degrees) and wind chills of -18 (-28 in normal person degrees) at 8 in the morning. So, they are terrible pussies I am quite jealous of. HSD.

AK and MI are a bit too GOP; LA and NC are a bit too Dem. I think. But it's broadly pretty accurate.
1724  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The NRCC is scamming voters out of their money on: February 07, 2014, 09:54:15 pm
Apparently they got the idea from the liberals. Fight fire with fire!

That actually re-directs to the Democratic Party site, it doesn't ask for donations under a misleading url. Try again.
It's quite funny how some of the fools can read a url, but apparently can't read the content on the actual page.

The ad is unquestionably negative, and it could confuse nobody about its purpose.

Just like the one the NRCC put up about Sink?

Every step her recovery takes is, in and of itself, a victory for the human spirit.
