1  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: KY: 2015 Statewide Primary Results on: Today at 12:03:22 pm
In some of the eastern counties, Grimes did better in the 2011 general than she did in this primary. 'Looks like some damage from the Senate race.

Harlan County in particular has turned into a real cesspool (I guess the carpet now matches the drapes), compared to even just 15 years ago. I bet Conway won't even manage to lose it by single-digits this time around.

Hasn't Harlan County always been horrible?

Yes but it used to vote Democrat, which is what I assume made it less of a cesspool in Adam's mind.

Conway has a fairly narrow advantage but I don't think Bevin should be counted out.

What's up with all those Blumenthal haters? The guy has been almost invisible since he was elected.

To be fair, I want most Democrat and Republican Senators to lose re-election Tongue

McCain and Blumenthal, for sure.

Obama was a great salesman - he sold himself as both to the right and left of Hillary Clinton.

True, but it's also easy to "sell" what certain people already want to buy.

It's even easier when your message was as vague as Obama's was.

He's in pretty bad shape, but a comeback is not impossible. This field has the potential to crumble, and if that's the case, look out for a Christie comeback.

What kind of a "comeback" did you have in mind?

 …The successful launch of a new acting career benefiting Chris Christie a few years after the death of James Gandolfini?

I'm sure his debate appearances will all be memorable at least, which probably means he gets a surge at some point.

Still, probably a zero percent chance he wins the nomination. But I don't think he has a zero percent chance of winning a single state.

That makes no sense considering Lego is a very successful business venture.

Good news! Salmon isn't my favorite but he's preferable to McCain by a long shot. Hell, Kirkpatrick is preferable to McCain too.

May force me to actually donate to Rand Paul, but it's not as if my $25 is going to help.

It helps him in the general election but hurts him in the primary going forward. It's a good move though.

December 2016 - The end of another tough year for De Blasio


December 2016 - Throughout early 2016, things finally seemed to get better for Mayor DeBlasio - his presence seemed more focused, his agenda sharpened and ready to be passed, and his image began to recover after an early weakness. But the Mayor of New York City had a rough couple of months when his attempts to regulate the Uber app became the laughing stock of the city. Many people opposing DeBlasio, including Democrats, summarily mocked him. But that wasn't the biggest revelation - the biggest was the cities finances, which, after a couple of years of improvement, fell into massive debt. DeBlasio, the incumbent, was blamed for it, mostly for his lavish attempted programs on education and infrastructure. This led to a budget battle that has left him rather bloody. People are looking around for opposition... Including the Governor.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has very quietly led a coup against the Mayor of New York City, as they have bumped heads many a time in the last couple of months. Cuomo recognizes his danger in a Democratic Party, and that a DeBlasio candidacy could wreck him entirely. Thus Cuomo has taken on a great risk to ensure that doesn't happen. He met with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents, hoping to find his man. On December 14th, 2016, he finally did...

The only reason I'm signing this is because I know he's a troll account - the unbelievable story he's concocted as a gay uberconservative in San Fransisco is patently ridiculous. I just want him out.

21  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: Should we do something about AggregateDemand? on: May 28, 2015, 08:10:02 pm
AggregateDemand is dull, but not sure if he's banworthy. Though I do get tired of his econ lectures in the middle of threads that have nothing to do with it.

but muh unelectable sestak

Can Tester, Reid, and Schumer please butt out now? Especially now that Shapiro has declined.

Casey approvals are low, but there are more Dems in PA. So, Casey will hold on.

THAT'S NOT WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT

How did Rubio go from being one of the less electable candidates to one of the more electable?

Rubio was always a rather tall man in a land of midgets. That being said, he's still pretty short - he has a lot of baggage that will make him very unelectable.
