Poor Austria. Everybody is crediting the Dutch as the first to go against the populism that brought your Brexit and Trump.

What was the Pirate Party's best municipality?

So the PvdA lost a humongous three quarters of their seats and the SP still didn't manage to profit from that?? Talk about Epic Fail!

Denk pulling out of the debate is completely incomprehensible. What possible risk could there have been for them participating? Almost any "incident" could only have been to their benefit.

The Pirate Party is now getting a seat from another poller.

My gut tells me this will hardly affect the election, given the Dutch are closing ranks on this.

In a twisted sense, this is a stroke of genius by the Erdoğan regime. They knew that the added sensitivity of the imminent Dutch election would help provoke this diplomatic incident, allowing them to incite the nationalistic sentiment that will help them win their referendum. It's Putin-tier in its reckless audacity.

So what happened to the fan-favorite "Moderate Hero" designation? Does one have to pay royalties for use of this term now?

Careless.

The phrase "Kopvodden." on that billboard is not between quotes, meaning that one can no less easily interpret the message as opposition to headscarves rather than the term itself. It seems that, when it comes to the VVD campaign, any supposedly anti-PVV sloganeering always has to be ambiguous.

Donald likes soldiers that aren't killed.

In this time of global populist fervor, the most underplayed story of this election has to be the quite lousy performance of the SP and that, despite the imminent collapse of the PvdA. It's hard to pin this entirely on the seemingly uncharismatic Roemer.
13  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: CPAC scrambles to control damage after attendees wave Russian flags on: February 24, 2017, 03:13:16 pm
Wait, those weren't opponents of Trump intending to make him look bad?!? Is this real life?

When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. In Geert's case of course, the hammer is playing the victim. This guy has no intention whatsoever of ever being constructive in his political life.

So memes are actually powering the world right now? What a country!
16  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Meanwhile... (Chris Christie) on: February 16, 2017, 07:02:34 pm
So the president met with someone facing a criminal case against him for abuse of power as Governor. Are we sure the meeting wasn't about a pardon for Christie?

The President can only pardon federal crimes.

18  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Will the midterm electorate help protect the GOP house? on: February 14, 2017, 01:40:01 pm
I would never underestimate the cognitive dissonance that could allow the Republican congresspeople to successfully distance themselves from Trump in the eyes of their base, him not being a "real Republican" when convenient.
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Breaking News: Michael Flynn resigns on: February 14, 2017, 11:25:01 am
Is Trey Gowdy going to hold hundreds of hearings to investigate this scandal like he did with Benghazi?

Do Trump or Flynn have a (D) after their names?

They will on Fox News some day.

Can you get any more condescending than labeling your constituents "children"?

As crude and flawed that coalition compatibility calculator might be, one cannot help but marvel at how much it is showing the PvdA to be in a position of power after the next election, even after losing two-thirds of their seats. Only D66 is coming close in that regard.
22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: McConnell shuts down Warren for reading Corretta Scott King letter on: February 09, 2017, 05:04:13 pm
I don't recall anyone ever having said anything positive about Mitch McConnell (aka the Auto-Filibusterer aka the Veto Victim Blamer aka Turtle McTurtleface) and now he springs this killer slogan on the world (unintentionally).
I guess this has to count as your one good deed in this life, Mitch!
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump Will Back Gutting Dodd-Frank and Volcker Rule on: February 06, 2017, 05:06:07 pm
I hope Trump's supporters lose their retirement savings if they support this.

They will still blame the black guy for it.

Just that one?
24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: SCOTUS-Watch: It's Gorsuch! on: February 06, 2017, 04:52:08 pm
If the SCOTUS is deadlocked on the travel ban by a 4-4 tie, shouldn't that harden the Democratic opposition?
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Politics and Elections in the Netherlands: GE March 15, 2017 on: February 06, 2017, 04:20:13 pm
The earlied mentioned "coalition checker" has used aforementioned voting guide to get to a crude compatibility score of the various possible coalitions: https://www.coalitiechecker.nl/verenigbaarheid
For more fun, try toying with the text area in the upper left, which lists the mutually excluded parties.
