Looks to be a case of West Virginia to me. The Democrats can do spectacularly well on the state level in Missouri, but in a year like this, there's not a remote chance in hell one will reach the Senate.

Surely there's a "remote chance in hell" of such in West Virginia...

Yeah actually, Raese screwed it up with his "hick ad," which Manchin has been hitting him pretty hard on.

Methinks the hicks doth protest too much.

I remember seeing this back then.  Not sure if it's heartwarming or disheartening.

That is pretty much standard practice, although Romney certainly doesn't need the money.  He is an all-around unpleasant individual, however, and I would support just about anyone besides him for the GOP nomination.

Why on earth would Arizona be included in the act?

(beyond contemporary "Barry Goldwater is teh racists!!1!," which is actually probably the reason).

I'm guessing Palin runs as an independent an peels off diehard pro-lifers

I was thinking more Pat Robertson.

Christian Right groups have threatened to mount a serious third-party candidacy (or at least heavily support the Constitution Party) if the GOP nominates a pro-choicer.

The Social Network - best movie of the year.  Strong performances from all involved, especially Eisenberg, although I actually thought the guy who played Eduardo was the weakest.

Eduardo was a weak character.

I'd agree that his character had the weakest writing but I still don't think he was as strong an actor as Eisenberg and Timberlake.

Rand Paul (Love Rand Paul - Better than his Dad!)

If you're a libertarian, as your avatar would suggest, why? Huh

A better question is why he finds any redeeming value in Mark f-ing Kirk.

Yeah, that's a rather obvious (and sure to backfire) appeal to racism.  I can't imagine anyone would see that billboard and be persuaded to vote for Republicans.

He actually came out against the Arizona immigration law awhile ago, fwiw.

He's also in favor of legalizing all drugs.

Disgusting. I think Colorado is smarter than to elect a fascist

Apparently it's not.

LOL
7239  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Your favorite Senate candidates this cycle? on: October 16, 2010, 10:41:19 pm
Rand Paul
Joe Miller
Mike Lee

Bizarrely, I find myself agreeing with someone who has a PM score rather far removed from mine (although I'd say it's more bizarre that said person chose those three than I).

Might be a Defense Hawk.  I really think that angle needs to be included in the next PM score, at least in the US.

If he's a defense hawk, he chose poorly, since they are the three most noninterventionist GOP senate candidates this cycle, listed in order of their level of noninterventionism.

I hate war but I hate the MA Dems more.

Why?

I suppose they're less corrupt than in Illinois or New Jersey, but other than those two shining examples the MA Dems are among the worst state parties in the entire country in terms of ethics, plus they're a horrible machine that elects awful people for their entire lives.  It's the reason why my mother, quite the liberal (she voted Nader in 2000) is voting GOP across the board this year.

It's Rasmussen, so it's no surprise that they would have Tancredo closer. Hickenlooper will win.

Too bad your sentiments aren't backed by facts. Rasmussen essentially nailed the 2004 and 2008 election results whereas Gallup was wildly off in 2008.

Was Gallup the one that thought Michigan was a swing state for most of the election?

Jimmy carter Vs. Nelson Rockefeller, 1976???

I doubt that Rockefeller would lose his home state, but it's based on (a) historical election(s).

look, you can stop talking about this guy, because the GOP would much rather see the defense budget cut in half than see any more taxes raised.  i.e. they are not going to entertain the thought of raising taxes until the Federal Budget is gutted - and I mean GUTTED.

The fear among the GOP is socialism and the fear is that time is growing very short to save the US, and they're individual freedom.  They are NOT going to be willing to throw more gasoline (higher taxes) onto the fire (spending).

The GOP voters are making a final stand.

If only that were true. However, when push comes to shove, I imagine the GOP will cling hard to their defense budget.

Indeed.  I think our friend from Texas is confusing the Republican base with Republican politicians.
