Vice President?

It's amazing that half of the right-wing party voted for gay marriage.

Eh, a lot of the UK Convervatives are probably similar to those New England Republicans who are now Independents who vote Democratic.

I wouldn't be so quick to assume that many Tories would vote Democratic.

I was at a Conservative Future (under-30's wing) election hustings in London the other day, and the topic of 'who would you support in the 2012 US election' came up. All the candidates said they would have supported Romney or Gary Johnson. One drunk girl in the audience shouted 'I LOVE OBAMA', then the vast majority of the room shouted 'SHAME' and 'UNSOUND' in response. I overheard the person in front of me say 'how can you be a Conservative and a Democ-RAT'? 

Obviously this is just one little snippet, but Conservatives are not like-for-like Democrats, although I would agree that there is significant overlap on social issues.

This is why I love Britain.

I feel like we aren't going to have another Italian pope for centuries.

This was legitimately funny:

Cardinal Simfan, Archbishop of New York.

Gorbachev led his nation to collapse, so no.

Given that the nation in question was the USSR, how is this a bad thing? Tongue

He saw the desperate need for reform, and implemented reform over the objections of the hard-liners and apparatchniks.  But, more important and far greater than that, was his gracious reaction to the tumult in the Eastern Bloc and eventually within Mother Russia itself: scant years previous, letting go or even loosening up would have been unthinkable.  It would have been met with redoubled repression, and backed up with nukes.

Gorby let go, and he kept those nukes ensiloed.  With every breath we take we ought to be thanking him.

It's a good thing, but it was neither a goal nor a mark of competence, much less greatness.

Indira Gandhi wasn't any good- she turned the country into a mire of violence and strife- it's very likely if she was not assassinated or if she had survived, an outright civil war would have broken out. Gorbachev led his nation to collapse, so no. Brandt was good, but not great. Allende was an incompetent. And Attlee was Attlee, so no to him as well.

Silesia could have quite easily been designated a Jewish state.

Which would have involved expelling the local Germans and would have been morally superior how?

Let us face the issue presenting itself before us- Bushie shall never answer any of our questions in a manner deemed "substantive" or "satisfactory".

1st round victory? Is that an attainable goal of Marduke? Or is it just a flight of whimsy to magnify their already great, if not historic, level of victory?

Dearest Bushie, let us face it. You have never got it. You will never have got it, you will never get it, et cútera, et cútera, et cútera. Let us not encircle ourselves in trying to avoid or comprehend this fact, but rather move forwards and try to find a "path" for you stemming from that fact.

Current numbers:
Pacific: 61% Napoleon, 39% Griffin
Midwest: 50% Napoleon, 50% Griffin
Mideast: 62% Napoleon, 38% Griffin
IDS: 50% Napoleon, 50% Griffin
Northeast: 60% Napoleon, 40% Griffin
Atlasia: 57% Napoleon, 43% Griffin

I stopped keeping track of the presidential numbers when it stopped mattering.

Thanks for that. I'll try to get another set of maps up within the next couple of hours.

This mustn't be much fun for you.

Are you drinking, Bushie? "We", "we"? Who are we? You are thirty. This should be "I".

Concord Grape Raspberry V-8 V-Fusion Light.

I was actually drinking that at a conference I was at early today! I thought it an odd choice. Turns out there was a large number of Mormons there.
