Obligatory George Carlin
2  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.
3  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

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.
4  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.
5  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?
6  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.
7  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.
8  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.
9  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.
11  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."

13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Mark Halperin: Press hostility to Clinton to be even greater than in 2008 on: April 05, 2015, 08:47:36 pm
The same Mark Halperin that gave us this gem.
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Carly Fiorina vs. Michelle Bachmann on: March 29, 2015, 09:04:12 pm
Bachmann ran in 2012, not 2008. Some here may actually have blocked it from memory, but she actually managed to top a few polls.
15  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Saudi Arabia and GCC allies bombing Yemen on: March 26, 2015, 03:42:15 pm
Saudi Arabia is the Monsanto of countries: You want to think many times before you consider being on their side.
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Could Hillary lose in '16, then win in '20? on: March 24, 2015, 09:57:19 pm
Getting so close twice would already be enough of a trauma for a younger candidate to call it quits. It would be like Al Gore on steroids.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Primary Election Polls / Re: NH-Gravis: Hillary below 50, Walker/Bush battle it out on: March 24, 2015, 08:30:28 pm
Are hashtag posts banned now? If so, I approve.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will Cruz Win Any Primaries or Cauci on: March 24, 2015, 08:14:41 pm
It's certainly possible in a scenario where his base of support helps him win repeatedly in a divided field, until people rally around a single anti-Cruz candidate.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What does Donald Trump really want? on: March 19, 2015, 06:00:02 pm
I still wouldn't discount the theory that he's secretly a Democrat who's aim is to damage the GOP as much as possible.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Rand Paul is in; to announce next month on: March 18, 2015, 01:04:14 pm
He and his father are vile swine. Hopefully he and his legion of Alex Jones's fanboys don't get the nomination. I fear he would play well with young voters in the general.

Yes, having actual principles makes you swine.

Ha ha ha, "actual principles"! Did you only just come out of a coma and not witness how blatantly Rand has been pandering on foreign policy issues lately? Here's your reminder:



Yeah, real principles in action there.
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Israel General Election Thread: March 17 2015 on: March 17, 2015, 08:48:45 pm
Netanyahu hanging on to power is in the best interests of the Palestinians. Otherwise, there'd be a fresh face who can play good cop in front of the world for quite some time, while absolutely nothing changes.
22  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Best Canadian Prime Minister Since WWII? on: March 16, 2015, 10:40:15 am
Okay, so are there any non-Israel-firsters here who think Harper is the greatest PM Canada ever had?
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Senate Republicans write a letter to Iran on: March 09, 2015, 11:46:15 pm
I'm actually curious to find out what more lines Republicans are going to cross in the remainder of Obama's term.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Chris Christie's Exxon Mobil Settlement on: March 08, 2015, 12:02:12 pm
And given the likes of Joe "I apologize" Barton in the party, how exactly would this hurt Christie in any run for the Republican nomination?
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: BOOM! Trump seriously preparing, starts hiring staffers on: February 25, 2015, 03:42:07 pm
Are we sure he's not secretly a Democratic plant?
