Love cleaned up at the convention; she got 78%.

UT-04 Dem candidate Doug Owens (son of the late Congressman Wayne Owens) got 98%, though against a totally non-serious candidate.

In UT-02, Chris Stewart was easily re-nominated, and Luz Robles was unopposed.

I choose the third option because it's the closest to "lol" I could get. The "who are they again?" option.

Insert conservative conspiracy theories about how this guy is a LIBERAL FALSE FLAG TO UNDERMINE THE SECOND AMENDMENT. Or something like that.

Either he was more rattled about that one Rachel Maddow interview than anyone thought previously, or he actually does want to broaden the party. He's been on this topic for months.
30  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Do you feel that politicians more charismatic in the early 20th century? on: April 27, 2014, 12:04:31 am
I would agree, something's missing with today's politicians. Even Mario Cuomo in the 1980s/90s was more charismatic than any politician now. His speeches against Reagan were really good.

Josh Mandel is such a little twerp that I can't imagine him winning anything else except a twerp contest.
You are talking about a combat veteran of the USMC

And yet he lost badly to a liberal in a swing state.
32  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Elizabeth Warren on: April 26, 2014, 07:55:30 pm
FF, albeit somewhat cliched and somewhat bland.

Cliched and bland? I'd hate to see what passes for exciting and charismatic, then.
33  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which state will elect another Democratic senator first? on: April 26, 2014, 07:54:42 pm
Mississippi definitely.  Mormonism is the peanut butter to Republican jelly...

More like the mayonnaise to Republican turkey/ham. Mormons are too white to be peanut butter.

Seriously though, you just need the right Democrat... He probably has to have the name Matheson.
34  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: FL Governor Hypothetical Dem Primary on: April 26, 2014, 07:52:53 pm
Crist for strategic reasons.

This, also because I think Crist will ensure his "conversion" is geniune, because it's not like he can rely on the Republicans anymore.

so you're saying in addition to being a huge sore loser, he's also a disgusting opportunist? and this is a good thing how?

Meh, maybe's it because I live in a very conservative state, but I have no problem with opportunists and party-switchers if they clearly have no where else to go after switching parties, especially if polling reveals that they're still popular. For example, if Jon Huntsman changed his views to be center-lefty and Democratic, polled well in a Utah statewide race, and clearly burned his bridges with the GOP, I'd support him.

Like all of the Udalls, a massive FF.

Thanks for the seat, Grimm.
37  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Congressman Michael Grimm (NY-11) threatens reporter during an interview. on: April 25, 2014, 09:09:07 pm
This guy sounds like a badass.

I dunno, having to threaten to do so rather than just doing it would be cooler.

Stabbing is not the appropriate response to rejection.
39  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Washington '14: The Dullest Midterm That You Ever Did See on: April 25, 2014, 04:59:23 pm

Ha, the Washington Republicans crying "sexism" when both of Washinton's Senators being women, and the previous governor being a woman.

Also, I think Habib will be a great Congressional candidate a couple of years down the line.

I hate Neil Abercrombie so this is great news for me. But hopefully David Ige primaries Abercrombie's ass off fist.

Imagine if all three of Ige, Hanabusa and Mercado Kim win their races Smiley


Abercrombie I don't care too much about, but ugh, Mercado Kim and Hanabusa.
41  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: which 1988 candidate would you rather see as the 2016 dem nominee on: April 25, 2014, 04:56:50 pm
Biden, with Gore as his VP.
42  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: FL Governor Hypothetical Dem Primary on: April 25, 2014, 03:53:14 pm
Crist for strategic reasons.

43  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Sean Hannity vs Glenn Beck on: April 25, 2014, 03:52:24 pm
Glenn Beck is funnier, has some reasonable views, and has a smooth baritone as compared to Hannity's whiny voice.
44  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: HI Gubernatorial Election 2014 Discussion on: April 25, 2014, 09:10:55 am
Hannemann is actually running as an independent.

I hope he gets crushed.
45  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Which senate election will have the most close result? on: April 25, 2014, 08:56:40 am
Probably Kentucky. Whoever wins will win in a squeaker.

So that's the education legacy we're going to have...

Interesting fact about Curt Clawson; he's the first LDS Congressman from Florida. Florida also has the first and only female LDS Senator (and first woman Senator from Florida), Paula Hawkins.

http://www.msnbc.com/msnbc/justice-finally-comes-the-pardons-office

Quote
Deborah Leff, a senior Justice Department attorney, will become the new pardon attorney. Leff has devoted her career to championing fair sentencing, serving low income Americans and feeding the poor. The announcement was hailed by fair sentencing advocates who said Leffís leadership would usher in a significant cultural shift at the pardonís office, long dominated by a handful of former prosecutors who have recommended fewer and fewer pardons to presidents in recent years.

The Justice Department announced a plan on Wednesday to canvass the entire federal prison population for the first time to find inmates who committed low-level crimes and could be released early.

That sounds promising, I'm glad they're doing it now.

He'd be a great VP choice, but I don't know about president. Too lackluster, the GOP seems to want a relatively well-spoken true believer type.
50  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Chris Murphy on: April 24, 2014, 03:36:23 pm
democrats on here dont want a progressive.

they are 'boring.'

let's have a gun toting populist who wears a bolo!

Dude, we don't actually care about Schweitzer that much. It's just that more of us liked him than the Dems who liked O'Malley. It's not like we like all gun toting populists everywhere. And "boring" is a factor in the general election; while good progressive policies are excellent at turning out the base, you also need to be good at explaining them to the public. I'm not sure if O'Malley will be able to do that.

I mean, look at Deval Patrick (for example). He's charismatic, good at explaining his policies, and progressive (or so I hope). Why pick someone boring and progressive when you can pick someone charismatic and progressive?
