1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who is Sanders closer to ideologically? on: May 22, 2016, 01:32:16 pm
If Rapist Trump had a coherent ideology beyond self promotion this would be a more valid question.

In other words, if one were to calculate the distance in ideology with Trump by some metric, the answer would be NaN.

Please also post a percentage.
3  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Pfizer Strikes Blow Against the Death Penalty on: May 14, 2016, 06:38:58 pm
Isn't the firing squad a bit too "honorable" of a death?
4  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Clinton supporters, are you scared that Hillary will blow it? on: May 14, 2016, 04:02:32 pm
I think that if Clinton wins, she'll be the worst campaigner in a long time to have won the Presidency and will have owed it completely to the current political reality.
5  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: NYTimes: Ted Cruz Backers Seek to Control Convention Platform on: May 09, 2016, 12:35:33 pm
At their 1864 Presidential convention, the Democrats adopted a platform of peacefully ending the Civil War, which was rejected by their own nominee, General George B. McClellan. This didn't help their campaign.

He'll just be elected again.

8  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Cruz's future on: May 07, 2016, 07:28:44 am
He'll surely claim the "next in line" designation.
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / "Thanks Obama"? on: May 05, 2016, 10:56:32 am
Any articles out there that somehow blame Trump's primary victory on Obama or Democrats in general?
10  General Politics / International General Discussion / Turkey General Discussion on: May 05, 2016, 10:15:33 am
Given the pivotal role Turkey has been playing in geopolitical affairs, especially lately, I think it's more than warranted that general discussion about it takes in place in a dedicated thread here (rather than it possibly be pitifully part of a thread in the election board, as has been the (undeserved) fate of some other countries).

The impetus for this topic is that Prime Minister Davutoğlu has announced his resignation, the tensions with President Erdogan becoming just too much.
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: The Delegate Fight: 2016 on: May 04, 2016, 02:00:41 pm
Bumping this as a salute to the effort displayed in this thread.
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Republican Indiana Primary results thread (first polls close at 6pm ET) on: May 03, 2016, 06:17:47 pm
GAME OVER!

Obligatory
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Last Indiana poll on: May 02, 2016, 02:26:29 pm
I think many Republican voters last week voted for Trump despite not being particularly enthusiastic about him just to close ranks and the same will happen here.

You seriously believe he's not an awfully good fit for that state?

Given that the only 2 West Virginians that I know are vastly in the tank for Cruz? I don't see it.

I guess you can't argue with a sample size like that.
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: It's over. on: April 30, 2016, 07:37:12 am
Why do all of these predictions have West Virginia for Trump?

You seriously believe he's not an awfully good fit for that state?
16  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Does Trumpism, as a movement that goes beyond the man himself, exist? on: April 29, 2016, 02:35:36 pm
I find Trump's rhetoric very similar to those of European far-right populists. It wouldn't surprise me if he's been taking a cue from the likes of Geert Wilders et al.
17  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Grassley: FBI could leak Clinton email investigation on: April 25, 2016, 11:29:48 am
But a leak would *not* be political?
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Cruz is incapable of winning a general election, & Trump is a stronger candidate on: April 24, 2016, 05:14:45 am
I think Cruz doing better than Trump in head-to-head match-ups right now could be explained by him having a higher floor of support.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: BREAKING: Trump calls on Kasich to change spelling of his name on: April 24, 2016, 04:28:32 am
Yet another reason why The Onion might as well close up shop.
20  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: UK 'Brexit' Referendum on the EU on: April 23, 2016, 06:37:27 pm
Surely many voters will realize that a Brexit could precipitate a new, possibly successful push for Scottish independence, which must affect their eventual decision.
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Poll: If Trump wins the Presidency, what are his chances of impeachment? on: April 22, 2016, 03:09:50 pm
Is that just impeachment or also conviction?

Zero percent. He's not winning.

You need to look up how "conditional probability" works.
22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: VP Biden: US Feels Overwhelming Frustration with Israeli Government on: April 20, 2016, 04:34:28 pm
Also, the ridiculous claim that the "occupation" is causing the violence in Israel is beyond stupid.

Is no one going to call this clown out on the use of these scare quotes? It's amazing the kind of cognitive dissonance a person can conjure in order to deny basic reality because just a factual description of it ("occupation") is by itself already so discomforting. In a way, it's an admission of guilt.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Treasury Sec. to announce Harriet Tubman will replace Jackson on the $20 bill on: April 20, 2016, 12:23:09 pm
Perfect choice, both with respect to who comes off and who gets on.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Delegates on: April 20, 2016, 08:37:11 am
No, because Trump is not yet guaranteed to win a plurality of delegates.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Trump's fifty-fifty target on: April 20, 2016, 08:21:01 am
How many pledged delegates would Donald Trump have to win for you to say that his chance of winning the Republican nomination (on the first ballot or otherwise) would be the closest to 50%?
