26  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: VA: LG. Northam planning on running for Governor on: February 25, 2015, 02:02:12 am
I'd prefer Herring running, but good to know that VA Dems won't be caught flatfooted without a candidate, I guess.

I don't care either way who the Democratic nominee is, as long as it's not a total crank. Whoever can boost the bottom of the ticket (Senate, House, Governors) the best is best. I live in Utah so I'll just happily chug away and vote Green till the end of time because my presidential vote doesn't matter.

Turn the South into a decent home for former slaves, instead of a sharecropping nightmare. Stevens!

Cmon, Ethiopia didn't win? Bah, Euro-centrics! Though considering I just voted Finland...

Stevens, American hero!
34  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Andrew Cuomo vs. Debbie Wasserman Schultz on: February 24, 2015, 03:13:50 pm
As a Democratic nominee, or a person? As I said in the other thread, I'm not personally opposed to DWS, I just don't think she's the right fit for Florida statewide elections at the moment.

I am opposed to Cuomo, since he's literally supported Republican candidates over Democrats.
35  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: FL: Debbie Wasserman Schultz considering Senate run in 2016 on: February 24, 2015, 02:41:27 pm
Again, I think recruiting Kathy Castor would make all sides happy. She's not moderate/conservative/neoliberal like Murphy, she's not a walking DNC stereotype like DWS (and yes, Tim Kaine was also head of the DNC, but he also had a moderate persona and an opponent prone to gaffes). Florida is not a liberal state, I don't think they'd support a DNC head for senator. Just like they wouldn't support Alan Grayson, who is of the Bill Maher school of liberals.

I'm not totally against DWS, but I don't think she'd be the best candidate in this particular circumstance. If Florida was even slightly more liberal (like Virginia, maybe?), yeah, I'd support her.

I don't know who Iggy Azalea is.
37  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Gallup national poll: widening partisan gap on Israel/Palestine on: February 24, 2015, 12:31:16 pm
Did I seriously mix up where Dearborn is and where Ellison represents? Yeah, I have no defense for mixing Minnesota and Michigan up. My bad, guys. I even checked the Dearborn Wikipedia page and Ellison's page to make sure I knew what I was talking about before I posted. Must have been really tired or something.

It's kind of surprising that the change is that low when an American President is basically waging a diplomatic offensive against Israel. Good news in the long run.

Still not as dumb as this though.
38  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Favorite French Revolutionaries? on: February 24, 2015, 12:20:31 pm
I like Thomas-Alexandre Dumas, his life was just so interesting.
39  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Gallup national poll: widening partisan gap on Israel/Palestine on: February 24, 2015, 02:05:24 am
It doesn't translate much into political support in the Democratic Party, which is surprising. I could see a Democratic congressional candidate from a district with a substantial Muslim population trying to win support on that issue by promising to be a voice for Palestine in congress.

I think Keith Ellison is the only one who would have any opportunity for that, since he represents Dearborn.
40  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Rep. Schock big Katy Perry fan, according to The Hill on: February 24, 2015, 02:03:26 am
THERE IS NO WAY HE IS STRAIGHT.

GOING TO A KATY CONCERT IS ALMOST AS GAY AS KYLIE.

OMG.

It's not that, it's a collection of things.

Ethiopia has awesome history (and isn't overly talked about like Egypt), and also has fantastic food, as I learned for the first time today.

Anyone but Rahmbo.

Godspeed, MS Dems. You have about as much chance as UT Dems do, but you fight the good fight.
45  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of the Zapatistas on: February 23, 2015, 05:08:40 pm
I don't care either way (voted FF because Zapata himself was alright), but what's up with Subcomandante Marcos? When I left for my mission on May 2 he was this mysterious, elusive figure, and now Wikipedia says he was a hologram? What the heck?
46  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: OH-Sen: Cincinnati Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld likely running on: February 23, 2015, 11:42:47 am
Could Sittenfield transfer the money he's raised to a re-election bid (if he has an election coming up)?
47  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Political Nemises on: February 23, 2015, 11:41:42 am
The Huntsman and Romney families hate each other, actually. And at least Huntsman Senior hates Senator Mike Lee.

Isn't Huntsman Senior also buddies with Harry Reid? There was that whole thing about how Huntsman, Sr. was the one who tipped him off about Romney's tax returns in 2012.

As for the original question... I'm sure McConnell (and a lot of Senate Republicans) and Cruz loathe each other.

Virginian Politicians:

Bob McDonnell/Bill Bolling vs. Ken Cuccinelli

Not a lot of people liked Eric Cantor too, and from what I've heard, Boehner was not fond of him.

I'd say that the Huntsman/Reid relationship was more Huntsman Senior deciding who could do the most damage to Romney with the tax return issue, then any actual fondness for Reid. Plus Harry Reid does not have a lot of non-Nevadan Mormon friends.

Lebanon, Libya, and Tunisia. Oman for honorable mention.

The Huntsman and Romney families hate each other, actually. And at least Huntsman Senior hates Senator Mike Lee.

And former Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson hates all conservatives with a boiling personal passion, except for Mitt Romney, since he worked with Romney during the Olympics.

If I recall correctly, there's one GOP pol that John McCain hates for questioning his military service or something, I don't remember who it is right now though.

This is why progressives suck at politics in this country.  Instead of making fun of this guy, progressives should be using this as an opening wedge to get all GMOs banned, not just GMHs as this guy wants.

Why would we want to have all GMOs banned? Some are useful; heck Norman Borlaug managed to save a lot of people from starvation with them.
