Lots of talk in the state that Conway is now in big trouble for his re-election for AG.  A year is a long time though.

Well, Martha Coakley could probably have had a 75-25 victory, and now her race is at least talked about as close.

Yes, mainly that Baker may lose MA-GOV.

(Although that really wouldn't be that horrible, but he's too good a candidate to pass up).

No, we should believe Oberstar's internal, which shows him "up 3-1 with independents" but that he refuses to release.

Disgusting.  Here's hoping we won't have to finance Pasha Boy's junkets past early 2013.

(Of course, we'll just be doing the same for some equally horrible as$hole, but at least we'll be rid of one).
7231  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Would you ever fire a very good employee because they failed a drug test? on: October 31, 2010, 11:46:53 am
No.  I probably wouldn't even do drug tests at all (provided it's a white-collar job where it would not be dangerous for someone to be under the influence).  If someone were performing poorly, I would fire them, and if they weren't, I wouldn't.  But banning drug tests is ridiculous.  FWIW the reason why mandatory drug testing is so common is because "anti-discrimination" provisions mean that nowadays as soon as you fire someone they call up their lawyer, so businesses try to find several different reasons to fire someone lest they be challenged in court.

Yes, I didn't vote in the primary this year.

(I should have voted in the GOP primary for Kamal Jain, but I hadn't heard about his candidacy).

Justice & Development isn't Islamist, they're liberal.  They think people should have the right to worship freely rather than have restrictions like bans on headscarves.  The "Islamist" label is a smear applied to them by American neocons who don't like their skepticism regarding support of Israel, and by the fascist* opposition party, the CHP, whose ideology is based on nation-worship and military-worship (they're the ones who put the ban on "insulting Turkishness" into the constitution, which the AKP is trying to get rid of).

*Not hyperbole.

I strongly urge you all to change your vote.  AKP is one of the best parties here, especially in relation to the other parties in their country.

FWIW this poll says that the partisan composition will be 42D/27R/31I, while the 2008 composition in Connecticut was 43D/27R/31I.

I strongly doubt that.

When MA-04/05/06/10 and all the MA statewide offices have been called.  Or a semi-reasonable hour, if that takes a while.

(Duh).

Among the "establishment" types, Daniels and Pawlenty, and Pataki if he counts.

The latter is an oxymoron.

Then I guess most of the Tea Party are not for small government.

Nope.  Only a very small minority of people are for small government.

Well, the complete BS "suspicious packages" thing was about the best "October surprise" they could come up with, and Obama got to look all "presidential" and it diverted an entire night of news away from the midterm elections (even FOX - I checked).

There are two days left.  It really doesn't matter.

If we aren't counting primaries or special elections, then just 2008.

Even more hilariously, the article you linked refers to an ad by another candidate in another race in Oregon.

Oregon is Wisconsin?? Tongue

Swing state, woodsy areas . . .

I don't know why I did that.  I thought "Wisconsin" and wrote "Oregon." :S

In 2006, Kerry Healey (R) received 35.33% of the vote for governor in Massachusetts.

It's not Morgan Freeman on the ad, which goes to show that some rudimentary fact-checking might be worth your while.

Quote
"No, no ... just a person that's frequently used for voice-overs of all sorts of different folks," Scott Walker said when asked if there is a celebrity voice behind the ad.

Some rudimentary fact-checking might be worth your while.
