So, SSM is allowed in Miami and the keys?

The decision was immediately stayed, so not really.

During that interview, Tampa Bay Times reporter Adam Smith asked Jolly, “You’re OK if Florida said and voters decided same sex marriage is fine?”

“I am,” Jolly responded.

Not really news, but eh. More power to Jolly. If I'm going to be represented by a Republican I'm happy it's one of the less objectionable ones.

It'd be kinda weird to play as Euron after he killed me, so I'll be Baelish.

The only thing that'll kill discussion and the desire to run for re-election quicker in the Legislature than healthcare is another one of SJoyce's education bills. Tongue

Don't give me ideas Tongue

Darren Soto is my favorite of those options, with Val Demings a close second.

But A. it doesn't matter, and B. he's gonna pick Gelber.

Are you kidding? That is a really, really good one. It sends the message home to the average apolitical, undecided voter that Crist is only here to advance himself (as is Scott, but he at least hides it).

"If you vote for Charlie Crist, you'll get 4 great years and 2 championship rings. Charlie Crist is one of the best in the league."
"But then after four years he will run off to a lesser place (Cleveland and Washington)."

"And you still got a great four years." It's just not a well-thought-out ad.

As a side note, the Crist campaign is up with their first TV ad, Sunshine. Attention whoring, but I'm at around 20 seconds on the right in the blue shirt.

I'm surprised Euron would be able to ride a dragon.

Ugh, come on. Looks like our victory proved pointless. With Mance on the loose south of the Wall, I'm finished. Sad

At least you're alive Tongue The war has actually gone relatively well for the Iron Islands - but Balon, Victarion, and Theon are all dead. The only surviving Greyjoys are Asha, Aeron, and Euron.

At least the RPOF is current.
17  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who do you think would win? Florida Edition on: July 11, 2014, 03:20:18 pm
Scott will defeat Nan Rich 54-46ish, and the Crist-Scott race is a toss up, though I give Scott the edge. I suspect it will be close enough that it will take a day or two to determine the winner.

I'd give Crist the edge in Crist-Scott, but that might just be personal hackery. Regardless, I think Sanchez is mostly right here.
18  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Judge invalidates Florida's congressional districts, appeal is likely on: July 10, 2014, 10:27:41 pm
I'm confused...would this change the 2014 races? Or would it apply starting in 2016?

It would change 2014 but it will near-certainly be appealed to the FL Supreme Court so it's stuck in limbo right now.

How would that work though if everyone's already filed in the current districts and such?

The FL Supreme Court will make it so it doesn't take effect until 2016 while they consider the appeal.

So FL-14 is fine, but FL-10 is too gerrymandered?  Seriously?

I'm in FL-14, but knocking out FL-5 will set off a chain of redraws that would require redrawing the entire map. If I had to choose one to hit, it'd be that one.
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Florida Megathread on: July 10, 2014, 08:33:52 pm
Here we go.

The FL Legislature illegally favored the Republicans in redistricting and must be redrawn, acc'd to a Circuit Court judge. An appeal to the FL Supreme Court will likely mean it doesn't take effect until after the 2014 elections.

OOC: With the Vale likely going down in flames now, it seems as my Dorne is the only region in the country that has been saved from the war. Does that not give credit to her ruler? Tongue

The Iron Islands hasn't been invaded yet. Now that Euron somehow got his hands on ing dragons that may change.
23  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Florida Megathread on: July 10, 2014, 07:31:03 am
Bit OT, but if Crist loses (as I think seems likely) would Alvin Brown be a good fit for 2018? What about Bill Buckhorn? The bench doesn't seem to be stellar.

Bench still sucks, but Brown is to the right of the average FL Dem, and faces a tough re-election fight against former RPOF Chair Lenny Curry. I would look at Buckhorn or Pam Iorio (and maybe Buddy Dyer) as our only real chances at 2018.
24  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you have voted on confirmation of the Supreme Court Justices? on: July 09, 2014, 10:36:51 pm
lol at people saying they would have opposed justices that were confirmed unanimously.

Guys, I've been downed by a tropical fever so sorry about not responding yet to PMs I've received. I will soon.

Couple of quick questions to bring me up to speed though.

1. I take it from the missives I've received that PM negotiation should be done in fantasy-speak? Wink

2. Officially there is currently an alliance of Targaryen, Tyrell, Martell and Arryn if I understand correctly?

1. It depends. With some people I stay in character and others I do not; it depends on how each person wants to do it.

2. Here's what I understand it to be:

A) Targaryen-Tyrell-Arryn-Martell
B) Baratheon
C) Stark
Huh) Lannister, Varys
Greyjoy) Greyjoy


FTFY kinda. I'll do a writeup of my interpretation of Ironborn ideology and strategy once Euron or Dany kills me.
