I'm not sure if this has been discussed yet, but apparently the city of Miami passed a resolution that favors the secession of South Florida. 
I wouldn't be surprised. Since the territory of Florida was stolen from Spain, it's quite understandable that people of Florida want to stay away from their kidnappers! I know that you may say that it was too long ago for people to remember. But as a respond you may just have a look at the percentage of the secession moods among the states, that joined the Union by annexing the territory from the Spanish!!

Colorado update for 10/24.

Total votes: 517,058 (this is about 25% of expected total statewide vote)

Republicans: 226219 (44%)
Democrats: 164083 (32%)
Unaffiliated: 126756 (25%)

Amazing.  In 2010 Republicans finished at +6%.

The one who wasn't a White Supremacist.

I seriously don't know which one you are calling a white supremacist...


Strom Thurmond ran against a white supremacist?

You're right - Truman was a civil rights FF.  What is up with people's fascination with simplifying history?  Truman was a racist son of a b*tch who "supported" civil rights to bolster minority support, and that does NOT make his actions any less noble.

I'd say its pretty damn impressive that the grandson of a Confederate sympathizers, regardless of his personal views (considering he was born in Missouri in 1884 I'm not sure how his views could have been anything else), would endorse desegregation of the armed forces and a civil rights plank even at the cost of losing the Southern states in an already close election. You might as well argue Lincoln only freed the slaves as a political move and originally supported black colonization.

Bovespa is now gaining nearly 4% with Petrobras up 7%. One can only hope the market knows something we don't.

I think the only reason Coakley is so hated among Democrats is because her loss was the canary in the coal mine for the 2010 GOP wave. Instead of facing the reality that we were in for a huge shellacking, we instead chose to pin it all on Coakley to make ourselves feel better (I should know, I did it as well). It was a similar dynamic with Alex Sink. Instead of accepting her loss was the harbinger of a decent GOP year (even if not a wave), Dems chose to blame her for everything as well rather than taking into account the national mood and the implications for the upcoming midterm.

Don't get me wrong, Coakley ran a horrible campaign in 2010. And while it's been much better this year, she's still not exactly setting the world on fire. But I strongly believe this is why she's hated with such vicious intensity among some Democrats.

Whatever you think about either politician, I can't come up with a justifiable reason not to pick Churchill.

I'll usually try to keep my comments constructive, but ... this is disgusting. I absolutely cannot fathom imposing on my own 88-year-old grandmother, let alone having an expectation that she "waits" on me in any way while I get free room and board from her. Even if I was down and out. That's the point where I'd scrub toilets to earn enough money to care for her.
