Kinda weird, even by Atlas standards.

Can you give me an example?
The Landrieu thing, for one.

I stopped watching this show because of how they're making such an evil couple into the protagonists...
So I suspect Breaking Bad is unwatchable too.

Well I do hate myself, but it has nothing to do with being liberal.

Ouch Biden.

Hillary would be 70%+ most likely if you took out Warren.

John Edwards
Evan Bayh
Mark Warner
Harold Ford
Al Gore

I like your list, except Harold Ford couldn't win a general presidential election in the US - he's black.  Well, maybe if we're in the middle of a depression or something, it could happen.
Opebo was the guy who came up with the "Obama is a black, you see" meme IIRC.

18. From what I can tell in Australia 16 seems too young, though perhaps civic engagement in the States is stronger among youth.....

I would let a million Iraqi and Syrian women and children be raped, tortured and burned alive before I consented to a single drop of American blood being shed there.

Whether this is a necessary or just war is beside the point.

America cannot fight a necessary, just war today because America chose to fight an unnecessary, unjust war twelve years ago. I lay that at the feet of the failed foreign policy of George W. Bush and those elements of the Republican Party that still believe in neoconservative nonsense.

The 57% who support such a thing can go over there and take a stab at it themselves, as far as I'm concerned.

And if I have to listen to that senile old fart John McCain whine anymore about how we need to help his neo-Nazi fascist friends in Ukraine take over the country, I'm going to vomit.

The language might be extreme but I don't see how that's absurd, ignorant or bad.

North Carolina and Virginia yes. Louisiana's moved far enough to the right that even you would have trouble winning there.

For me.... I guess Cali? As Senators aren't elected in Australia the same way as they are here.

So glad I was wrong about the South Africa game.

So who do you guys think is the stronger group? I say it's pool A because of Australia and of course New Zealand. After India and Ireland, they are definitely my favorites.
Had all four of Pool A making the semis pre-tournament. I've backed away from that, but yeah it's clearly stronger than Pool B.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: "Who would fictional characters vote for?" omnibus thread on: February 24, 2015, 06:20:03 am
The Office:

Michael - not sure. Swing voter perhaps.
Dwight - far-right Republican
Jim - probably a Democrat
Pam - ditto
Ryan - get a Republican vibe from him
Jan - Republican
Roy - warehouse worker, so probably a Democrat.
Angela - Republican
Oscar - Democrat (gay Hispanic)
Phyllis - not sure, probably a Democrat.
Stanley - Democrat

Probably way off though, most of these hints are from Season 2.


Jeff: Probably apolitical, wouldn't care enough
Annie: Democrat
Britta: Green (known radical in the past, definitely has hippie leanings)
Abed: Libertarian?
Troy: N/A (Jehovah's Witness)
Shirley: Democrat (wore an Obama 08 shirt)
Pierce: Republican (despite his cultish leans he's from big business)
Chang: Writes in himself or something crazy
Pelton: Democrat

Labor back to "only" 53-47. Rogue? Or a potential rally around the flag effect with the upcoming executions?
