McConnell's wife, former labor secretary Elaine Chao, is drawing heat for sitting on the board of an anti-coal nonprofit headed by Michael Bloomberg and on the board of Wells Fargo, which divested itself of coal-related investments.

Campaign issue?

This will kill Chao's 2016 Senate run.

So does Renzi really do the no necktie thing regularly?

The person many thought would definitely run isn't going to run. End of story.

Probably a UEFA conspiracy. I mean, who besides Warsaw (and Rangers) fans didn't want to see Celtic and the fans in the CL?

A few on the Yes side are claiming that the "world's largest oil field" has been discovered off of Shetland but that Westminster is covering it up.

Aha.

Salmond would be shouting from the rooftops about this at the tiniest sniff of evidence.

It's part of the September Surprise.

Folks. I don't think I can stress enough how important it is that Napoli get through. We need all teams related to the Spanish federation to be embarrassed this year.

I didn't want to face Copenhagen but getting Bilbao is actually the toughest draw. At least we get to deny Spain a fourth spot. Wink

Wow. So Celtic really didn't get through. Yikes.

Napoli have the chance to face some tricky sides. I really don't want them to have to go to Copenhagen. Italian teams vs. Scandinavian teams = no good. So, naturally, that's who we'll get. I guess I'd prefer to face Liege.

I love how when Nate Silver predicts every state right in the 2012 election and forecasts an almost inevitable Democratic majority for decades to come he's an Atlas folk hero, but now that he's using the same methodologies to arrive at the conclusion of a GOP Senate come 2015 he's now unreliable or along the lines of any other Sabato or Rothenburg type.

Nice move, Atlas.  Nice move.

And I can't wait to see the waterworks here when the GOP gets to 51 on election night.

This place is flooded with Dem hacks? NO!

Literally nothing could be more hackish than predicting Rick Santorum would win in 2006, except possibly if there were Democrats predicting Blanche Lincoln would win in 2010. Are you really in a position to throw stones here?

Anyway, I was never a Nate Silver cultist. He's good at what he does and I respect his work, but he's not infallible.

Yawn. You're boring.

LOL, come on dude, Santorum never led in a single poll and trailed by double digits practically the entire campaign. Insisting he would win is the epitome of hackishness, and I doubt any Democrat on this forum could match it.

Ok and in the eight years since that election, I've explained my "prediction" probably a dozen times. You can keep harping on that prediction. Or even another one or two. It doesn't negate the fact that this place is a haven for Dem hackery applied to many races.

Give it a month or so and certain people here will start demanding that only polls showing the Dems in the lead should be entered.

The unionists look set to keep Scotland in the United Kingdom (and by a solid margin) if this latest poll is to be believed. 

It's a "poll of polls" and doesn't count undecided voters. It's also before the Salmond-Darling debate.

Yeah, meanwhile, I was one of only 12,169 (and I don't even think there were that many) at Roma vs. Inter in Philly. Tongue

I think the real scandal here is that the guy randomly capitalizes the "G" in the middle of his name.

I'm watching this "Fancy Farm Picnic" from today. It's some annual event with both candidates addressing the crowd with corny jokes (which seems to be entirely made up of campaign volunteers from each side) while the other just sits there and takes a bashing. It's really silly and awkward but hey, tradition is tradition.

Liverpool vs. City was a great time. I just happened to be sitting near the imitation Kop end. Liverpool "won" on penalties but each side gets a point because it ended in a draw during regulation.

Curious, but how did the game feel considering it was being played in a baseball stadium?

It felt like any other match. Our section wasn't far from the field. The midfield sections were further away but those are the only ones that probably felt the difference (the coaching staff and players sit pretty close to the sidelines behind the ad banners).

As for matches that actually matter, that Celtic loss is really something else. Zenit also lost in an upset. I imagine both will rather easily turn it around in the second leg though.

Absolutely horrific news for the soon-to-be-former Senator.
