There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

If a burial strikes my family as too practical, I'd go for either a viking funeral on one of the Great Lakes or to be sealed up in a tomb with my closest servants and bang-maids so they may wait on my every need in the afterlife.

The thread about the 1936 Literary Digest poll would be truly epic. But maybe not as epic as the anti-Lincoln thread in 1860.

When I was in the third grade, I thought that I was Jewish
Because I could count, my nose was big, and I kept my bank account fullish
I told my mom, tears blurring my vision
He said, "Mort, you've loved God since before circumcision"

After the election I'm sure there would be threads saying "Thanks gals, the Democrats will never win again because of your votes!"

Would the secessionists form their own forum for the 5 years after? Tongue

1948 if only because of the number of people who would be wrong about damn near everything.

It'd be a sub-forum.

It'd be a sub-forum.

Much of the debate about the sub-forum would be whether it should be a child board under the "International Elections" board or have its own separate board.

And whether or not US elections should be moved to the International Elections board, and whether it should be renamed the CS Election Atlas Forum

1936 would be so much fun -- polling data, except for one random new outfit named Gallup, shows Landon with a mild victory, and then on Election Night Roosevelt pulls out a gigantic victory. It'd be like if Rasmussen was revealed to have had a mild Democratic slant in 2010 (never mind everyone else).

I apologize for being so adamantly right.
