I'm getting used to the idea of the GOP taking the Senate, and the clusterf[Inks] that will accompany it.  But I'm not going to panic over something I have zero control over.
Yeah, they're just gonna f[inks] it up anyway.

The Lion King is without a doubt the best and my favorite, but Tarzan holds a special place in my heart because it was the first movie I saw in a theatre and Phil Collins' epicness.

Guys, this isn't even a question. Even a prominent Dem State Representative said Wolf was "awful" in the debate.

The question is, how much will it matter going into the bigger debates.

The question is:  Do you believe as many as 14 people on this forum watched that debate?


As I said elsewhere, that's not the point. Of course this wasn't a well watched debate. It was on PCN on a Monday night, for crying out loud. Tongue

But it sets the tone for the next debate and the media reaction to it, even basically no one that can be swayed watched, at least changes the conversation from "This is over. Seriously." to "Hey, Corbett put up a fight. This might be worth watching."
At worst it changes the conversation to "Hey, Corbet put up a fight. Too little to late, he's dead."

Oh, you fools...

So question, as someone who just lurks here, why are you so disrespectful? If you were on any other forum you would have been banned a long time ago, I have no idea why they let such a rude person like you stay here and just be mean to everyone.


Yeah, that isn't selective bias as at all if you think my "rudeness" is any worse than the amount of Dems (and, yes, other Republicans but not as many) that make comments on these races, let alone ban worthy.

A bit of advice if you can't appreciate tongue-in-cheek commentary: keep lurking.



Some words of advice on my end then, tongue-in-cheek doesn't work on forums, it just makes you look like an ass.
I also think alot of people, of every color avatar, should be banned on this forum. I just think your probably the worst offender.
A quick google also brings up this:
ttp://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=190648.0

add an "h" to the beginning of the link, i cant post one.

Whatever, I'll go back to lurking. I come here for the polls anyway, not the terrible commentary.

Oooooh Phil, he said you have no nipples!

Probably something similar to what Cuomo is doing in NY. He'd probably take a more moderate to conservative approach to economics, with a lot of tax cuts and the like. But he'd be pretty chill on social policy with more liberal actions.

From what I see he's kinda right. There's nothing really to be gained from beating on (no pun intended) Rice. He's saying that they've got problems and need help.

He's trying to be Arnie Vinick. He said that almost verbatim in the West Wing Season 7 episode, "The Debate".

12  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Opinion of Colm Wilkinson as Jean Valjean on: September 04, 2014, 04:55:08 pm
He's the best Valjean hands down, and that's not just because he originated the role. His voice just has this emotional and almost haunting quality to it. If you loved him as 24601 you'd love him even more as the titular character in The Phantom of the Opera (he was actually ALW's first choice for the role but turned it down to be Valjean).

Isn't Grimes going through a "bizarre scandal" of her own? The issue with her campaign bus?

The only people who care about the campaign bus "scandal" is the right-wing media that's determined to elect McConnell.
And of course POLITICO gave some unnecessary coverage to it

The story here shouldn't be about Romney, he's not running. It should be that Perry is running at a particularly strong 3rd place (in the poll that matters, that doesn't include Mitt) ahead of frontrunners Paul & Bush.

17  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Democrats who voted against aca in 2010 but still lost the seat. Why? on: August 23, 2014, 01:04:57 pm
A Democratic member of Congress still votes for Democratic leadership.  I remember Kristi Noem in 2010 emphasizing that she would not vote to make Nancy Pelosi Speaker.

Both parties do it.  I believe Democrats used it against Lincoln Chaffee in 2006, arguing that a vote for him was a vote for a Republican Senate Majority Leader. 

This makes sense. So congress is increasingly becoming like a parliamentarian system where you vote based on who you want to lead the house. Voters just didn't want Nancy Pelosi to stay as majority leader.

Why are democrats keeping her as leader if she has been rejected.
Because she's the best at her job we've had since Tip O'Neil.

Yeah if Ellen and Whoopi count, he should be on the list too.

House has wit and humor to it, while Breaking Bad struck me as trying too hard to be serious and dramatic.

23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sanders: Not sure about Hillary on: August 13, 2014, 07:11:11 pm
Bernie Sanders is definitely running for the Democratic nomination against Hillary Clinton. While I only see him winning the Vermont primary, he can potentially give Hillary Clinton a run for her money in the Iowa Caucuses and the New Hampshire primary by receiving 20-30% of the vote in them.

So you're thinking he will become a Democrat (last I checked, he wasn't) just for the sake of running against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primaries?  

From his public statements over the past nine months, that's exactly what it sounds like he's going to do (should he run).  He says that he doesn't want to be a spoiler in the general election, and he's highlighted the fact that if you run in the primaries for either of the two major parties, that gives you an opening to participate in the primary debates.  So that sounds like he's looking at running for president as a Democrat, but nothing's official yet.

Never thought I'd say this, but I think the party establishment should shut him out. He's not a legitimate Democratic candidate if he's not even an actual member of the party. Doesn't he do the same thing in Vermont every time he's on the ballot? He runs for the Democratic Nomination but ends up being an independent.

I don't agree.  The last thing we need is a Nader 2000 style situation in 2016.  And Sanders caucuses with us in the Senate, so it's not like he's some random nobody trying to run.

Also, I'm not sure what "shut him out" even means here.  The DNC can't stop Sanders from getting on the primary ballots.  If he wants to run as a Democrat, he'll do so, and doesn't need anybody else's permission for it.

They can completely ignore him and throw all their support and money behind Clinton, which they were likely gonna do anyway.

He was one of those greats, along with Johnny Carson and Bill Murray, who you thought would always be there. I know everyone dies,but I just never thought Robin would.
Bill Murray is still alive.
I'm not saying he's dead, I'm saying he's one of one legends who you can't imagine living in a world without.
