1  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Who will succeed Netanyahu as Israel's Prime Minister, and when? on: July 28, 2016, 04:06:01 pm
I do like another plan more, it is called the Palestinian emirates plan and was made by Dr. Mordechai Kedar. http://www.palestinianemirates.com/

Holy apartheid, Batman! And this wouldn't be Bantustans on steroids because of what exactly? Because he gave them the more palatable-sounding term "emirates" instead? At least the original Bantustans were mostly larger than mere cities.

If people are really this deluded to think the plans mentioned here count as either "peaceful" or even realistic, then it's more likely a future Prime Minister of Israel will end up being called Marwan Barghouti (cf. once again South Africa).

The worst kind of campaign blunders are those that reinforce negative perceptions of the candidate (see e.g. Romney). In this case it's Mrs. Says Anything To Get Elected.

This whole election cycle has been one big October surprise, so the rule of irony dictates there will be none.

How do you do, fellow kids? They're actually streaming this on Twitch.

Is this the part where she calls him a self-hating Jew?
6  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should Hillary make a pledge to serve only one term? on: July 24, 2016, 06:57:27 am
Does anyone happen to remember whether McCain made some noise in that direction in 2008?

Because if there is anything this country needs, it's a Cheney on steroids.

Obligatory

No seriously, can anyone explain what the deal was with Alaska?

AL has state rules about candidates that suspend campaigns, and they lose their delegates. The delegation chair announced the original totals, not the ones based on their rules.

Thanks, that explains a lot, although you meant AK.

So are any credible shenanigans possible at this point?

I have absolutely no idea what's going on right now, but it's glorious.

15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Pence, Clinton, and the Iraq War on: July 18, 2016, 12:44:51 pm
In a debate setting, she could.

Trump: "Your vote for the Iraq war is just another piece of evidence that you're unqualified for the presidency."

Clinton: "I find it incredibly hypocritical for you to quantify me as unqualified based off a vote that your own hand picked vice presidential nominee also voted in favor of."

Seems like that would be walking into a trap as Obama did the same thing.

The Tories are playing this smart. They know that Labour will likely not be able to get rid of Corbyn before going through a (losing) general election. Putting off the election as long as possible could lengthen their rule for another decade with little opposition.
17  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: On-Going Military Coup in Turkey on: July 16, 2016, 10:20:23 am
People who were cheering the coup attempt when it was ongoing should shut up and not bemoan any possible blowback now that it failed.
Why?

Because they should have been smart enough to know ahead of time that what happened now would be a likely outcome. Anyone who is worried about the democratic state of Turkey should condemn the coup attempt wholeheartedly (as the opposition parties did) and not just cynically after the fact because it has strengthened Erdoğan now.

Sorry if I missed them, but were any possible specific cause(s) identified for Trump's sudden bump in the polls?
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Mike Pence: "Smoking doesn't kill" on: July 15, 2016, 06:57:54 pm
Bob Dole was also a "smoking denier".
21  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: On-Going Military Coup in Turkey on: July 15, 2016, 06:16:50 pm

Still suspiciously late. As if they know the jig is up.
22  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: On-Going Military Coup in Turkey on: July 15, 2016, 04:15:06 pm
Surely I'm not the only one troubled by Kerry's initial statement, in particular the lack of even a token mention of how democracy and the constitutional order of a country such as this should be respected?
23  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: On-Going Military Coup in Turkey on: July 15, 2016, 03:52:12 pm
Could there be a relationship with the recent diplomatic turnabouts with respect to Russia and Syria?

If Trump picks Flynn, it would be the first cross party (Democratic-Republican) ticket since 1860.

You mean 1864.

I could tolerate May, apart from her immigration policy she's relatively similar to Cameron's legacy.

She has more of a reputation of not being too keen on civil rights.
