2  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Labour Party leadership election 2015 on: May 17, 2015, 01:47:24 am
If Labour is really that stupid to choose someone who voted for the Iraq War as leader, they deserve to be haunted by it till the end of their days.

Of the 30,697,845 valid votes, 15,357,850 went to losing candidates and 7,461,407 were excess votes for winners, meaning that 74% of the valid votes were wasted.

I'd like to hear the response from ISDS apologists to this.

Sanders is clearly running in order to shift the Overton window.

Can anyone tell me what the point is of voting for the Speaker seeking reelection, if that person never takes a position on any substantive issue? It effectively disenfranchises the entire constituency.
7  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: UK General Election - May 7th 2015 (The Official Election Day & Results Thread) on: May 07, 2015, 07:08:10 pm
Does anyone happen to know at what point half of all the seats had been declared last time?

I read that as "Procrastinator".

In case of a hung parliament, does the Queen get to have any actual influence on the next government?
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Lindsey Graham has some thoughts on the use of Arabic definite articles on: May 05, 2015, 05:08:50 pm
And here I was seriously expecting it to be an article by the Onion.

Long-shot candidates have gotten their delegates stolen over less.

Obligatory George Carlin
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary's logo is an arrow pointing to the right on: April 14, 2015, 05:02:50 pm
What a cold and impersonal logo. Seems very appropriate.
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: FiveThirtyEight: Rubio first real candidate to enter, Cruz/Paul not serious on: April 14, 2015, 03:56:26 pm
http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/marco-rubio-announcement-2016/

The media and pundits are going to look really dumb if Rubio fizzles out.

This is dubious reasoning, because Rubio could simply be overshadowed ("dominated" in game theory jargon) by someone who is an even better fit, e.g. Walker, and it wouldn't "falsify" this article.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Rubio is in!!! on: April 13, 2015, 06:42:47 pm
Why do some politicians sound like they're on the verge of crying? Rubio is like the male Kelly Ayotte.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Benevolent primary opponents on: April 13, 2015, 11:34:25 am
Which of Clinton's (prospective) primary opponents are in it for the express purpose of providing token primary competition just to help her for the general election, i.e. are intentional sparring partners?
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Alright, fine it's inevitable on: April 12, 2015, 02:45:24 pm
Hillary is winning this race. I tried to tell you folks, I really did. This one looks like a landslide.

Hillary is winning every state in these primaries.

Trying to pull a deliberate "mypalfish", I see.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton set to announce her 2016 campaign this weekend on: April 09, 2015, 07:10:12 pm
The media should troll Clinton by hardly paying attention to her announcement.
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Lincoln Chafee exploring 2016 run. on: April 09, 2015, 01:41:19 pm
It's great that someone who voted against the Iraq War is running.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: WI: Rand Paul is punking the GOP? on: April 09, 2015, 01:21:22 pm
I thought that was the common consensus

Which is exactly why i have a hard time thinking he'll ever even come close to winning the nomination.

Surely another hung parliament must mean the end of FPTP?

Actual quote from someone way more right-on and constitutionally 'progressive' than me at the time of the AV referendum: 'you know, I rather like dear old First Past The Post.'

Obviously I'm thinking of proportional representation this time, not AV. Of course, the big question is how the SNP feels about it.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How will the right react if this happens? on: April 07, 2015, 12:10:21 pm
"Not conservative enough."
