I won't say "never", but she almost certainly won't win in 2017.

I would have thought going up against someone as hated as Sarkozy would be her big chance.

Hoffa, to my limited knowledge, as a Teamster supported Republicans. I'll vote for the Michigan Republican & Neo-Liberal Italian over an ex-Democrat Southron and a woman.

I was more emphasizing how terrible "I'll vote for the Michigan Republican & Neo-Liberal Italian over an ex-Democrat Southron and a woman." is.
You clearly don't get Cathcon's sense of humor yet.

A post using "humor" can also be bad.

...president of France? Marine le Pen

...president of France? Marine Le Pen

Marine LePen will never be elected President of France.

N.E.V.E.R

I think it is fairly certain she will reach the second round. If her opponent is Sarkozy turnout could get really low and le Pen would be favoured in that scenario.

A number of small Caribean nations have "Bolivarian" governments.  You could start invading those.

It's hard to think of a government that doesn't eventually gain a reputation for being out-of-touch. People like to think that there are good solutions that make them personally better-off but the government doesn't care.

Maybe, but there is a reason Conservative parties are especially prone to aquire  such a reputation.

11  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Today, the 2015 Far-Right "academics/fraternity" ball takes place in Vienna on: Today at 02:06:15 am
Here's the 2014 thread
...

FP-leader Strache has already provoked the Left with this Twitter-post:



"Next Friday, the boot troops of the SA (Socialist Antifa) will once again march through Vienna."

...

"SA" of course is a reference to the WW2 "SS" boot troops - which the Left often associates with FP-demonstraters.


Would seem more logical if SA was a reference to the actual Sturmabteilung. Antifa is certainly much closer to the brownshirt bullies than to SS.

The point is that BRTD here is an American posting on an American website. Failure to use proper terminology is incorrect.

This is first and foremost a private website with an international profile and Dave has never indicated that he specifically wants people to use American terminology (or spelling for that matter). I doubt he cares about that.
13  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Which European Green/Hard Left/Handwringing Liberal party is the most pathetic? on: January 31, 2015, 02:05:25 pm
The French Greens definitely merit a mention, given their incompetence and their remarkable ability to screw everything up.

Tbf it's not like they are particularly bad in the context of 'French political parties'.

My votes would go to hapless Plaid Cymru, Palikot's Movement and the Socialist People's Party of Denmark.

Scottish Greens also deserve special mention for their ... Erm ... relationship with the petrostate.

Plaid does not fit any of the three categories. SPP is definitely not the most pathetic if you consider the competition.

"DPP should be part of a "blue" government if they get 20% of the votes"
 - Agree: 51%
 - Disagree: 28%
 - Neither: 10%
 - Dunno: 11%

DPP voters:

55% Agree
30% Disaagree


DPP would get more political influence in government than outside?

 - Agree: 48%
 - Disagree: 36%
- Neither 8%
 - Dunno: 9%

After three interest rate cuts in 11 days the National Bank of Denmark has stopped issuing government bonds to prevent further increases in the value of the Danish krone.
20  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Robert Mugabe named chair of the African Union on: January 31, 2015, 02:10:24 am
The most controversial head of the AU since FIVE YEARS AGO. I'm surprised it's been that long.

He is replacing Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz from Mauritania. A two time coup leader from a country which has actual slavery and in 2011-12 AU was led by Teodoro Obiang -  who has ruled Equatorial Guinea longer than Mugabe has ruled Zimbabwe and is an even worse tyrant.

This is a shame because Southern Africa has some of the best leaders on the continent, but there have been people just as bad heading the AU. Mugabe is just better known in the West.
21  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Robert Mugabe named chair of the African Union on: January 31, 2015, 01:52:29 am
As the outgoing head of SADC that was basically inevitable since it is Southern Africa's turn to lead the AU. There is an established practice of regional rotation: East, North, Southern, Central and West Africa. And it is only for a year.

This one belongs in "The Willips Brighton Asylum of Gross, Cruel and Insensitive Remarks", but I see some busybody has merged that with "Oxford", so here it goes.

I wasn't a fan of Cosby before the allegations came out. Well I stand corrected he was okay I guess in the pudding ad's and his 90's show wasn't that bad (that was due more to the supporting cast; especially Madeline Kahn before she died,) but besides that he never made me laugh. Howard Stern was right Cosby was one of the more unfunnier comics there ever was.

Now not much has changed. Find it ironic he diddled Janice Dickinson though. She's one of the easiest women to get with sexual wise in her prime in the business.  What a fool.

If you don't love Italy there's something fundamentally wrong with you.
I realize Libya, Somalia, and Eritrea all have major problems, but there's no fundamental wrong in the people from there not loving Italy.

Is that actually the case anymore? I have never met a Somali that had a grudge against Italy.
