This pick is lunacy. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a hack, a troll, an idiot, or the Republican presidential nominee. Most likely all four.

Fixed it! Grin

I wouldn't go that far. For example, they'd probably be equally likely to be the Republican vice presidential nominee. So no way can they also be most likely the Republican presidential nominee.

If Ryan thinks he is such a good pick, he doesn't need to run for the House.

Whoa, dude.
First of all, congratulations and good luck.

But......you are one of our most reasonable and intelligent posters. I don't recall ever seeing a post of yours that was rude or seemed lacking in thought.

Guess you will have to pick a new team though. Tongue

Really, Nappy? Huh.

I'd say 6.

What does that mean?

7706  Forum Community / Forum Community Election Match-ups / Re: Make a map of the above four posters as two tickets on: August 11, 2012, 09:35:15 pm
Senator Scott of Connecticut/Representative Jones of New York- 285 EV and 50.8% PV
Senator Shua of Virginia/Senator Sanchez of Florida- 253 EV and 48.4% PV



The Republicans nominate long-time Senator Shua, a moderate of Virginia. To help consolidate the base, Shua selects the more conservative Senator Sanchez as his running-mate. With both hailing from swing states, the ticket looks strong and the Republican base is united.

The Democratics nominate Senator Scott, who defeated a left-wing challenge from Governor Snowstalker in the primary. To unite the Democrats, he selects left-wing Congressman Alfred Jones as his running mate, who is aiming to be the first gay Vice President. Scott runs a shrewd campaign, focusing heavily on his opponents' home states.

The friendly, folksy Democratic ticket is victorious despite Senator Shua's "elder statesman" appeal and moderate record. Numerous gaffes by Sanchez are blamed for the ticket's loss.

The GOP WILL NOT GET MY VOTE. YOU MUST HAVE AN EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN ON THE TICKET!!!!!!!Thanks for flipping us evangelicals off GOP

No sane person will cry over losing the fundie vote.

Are you saying fundies aren't sane? I happen to be quite sane.


Not my diagnosis.

I was referring to:

That is a disgusting post that deserved to be infracted. Taking posting advice from Snowstalker is not a good idea.

I also made a similar comment which was similarly censored.

Considering your past statements on racial matters, I do not see what is so wrong with what I said in the context given. Posts like the ones we are discussing are objectively bad and are bound to offend. There is no humor in the Holocaust, or racial epithets, to most people on this forum.

Wow, Napoleon being a dick? I'm shocked!
Finding Holocaust jokes disgusting does not qualify as "being a dick" for normal people. Please continue with your intelligent contributions.

It was me. Show me the facts on that and we'll talk.

I hope that you're not implying that this post is only unacceptable because Seatown isn't citing his sources.

That is, unfortunately, standard moderation policy. When I called Snowstalker a racist, I had to show Inks the proof that Snowstalker was indeed a racist to get the points removed.

A smug, self-important individual who passes for an "intellectual" in the modern GOP, if only because he actually is serious about "entitlement reform."

Except when Republicans are in office, of course.
7714  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Good Neighbor Resolution (Debating) on: August 11, 2012, 05:31:04 pm
I cannot support this.  It makes it to easy for a small group of Senators to hold up the Senate and attack their political opponents.

It is already easy for a single Senator to do that. There are solutions for that.

     Occasional updates would be nice. Mississippi has a nasty tendency to get polled about once per cycle.

The once a decade Census is all we need to know.....

No, because he does, indeed, follow the Catholic Church's backwards-ass social morality.

Have you heard the Paul Ryan Personal Dictionary definition of the phrase 'preferential option for the poor'?

No, but I have heard the phrase 'ignorant, socially-unaware, anti-choice, homophobic dipstick'.

Or in other words, Catholic.

You're edgy.

Naturally. One could impale themselves on my state's southern border.

I thought we were going to use the surplus for the capital relocation project.  Would this bill conflict with that plan?

Simfan's proposal called for us to issue bonds, IIRC.

The two arent mutually exclusive.

Why the hell would we nominate Crist?

Because he can actually win.

Some things are more important than winning.
7721  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Romney picks Paul Ryan as his running mate **official thread** on: August 11, 2012, 11:35:05 am
Well, good for Romney. I don't know if he's going to win or not, but he needed a game changer, and this was the right way to do it.

Ryan is more of the same.
7722  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Romney/Ryan is first major party ticket with no Protestant on it. on: August 11, 2012, 08:35:29 am
Neither party has a Protestant in the ticket.
Barack Obama is a Protestant.

The issue is that he isn't the right kind of Protestant.

The white kind of Protestant?

Aye
7724  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: It isn't Ryan on: August 11, 2012, 08:29:23 am
Ryan is not a game changer. He is not the answer. This is a huge blunder for Romney haha.
7725  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: It isn't Ryan on: August 11, 2012, 01:33:03 am
Wishful thinking.

Romney is well aware.
