I'm probably one of the few people who likes Burris.  He doesn't give me the impression that he's crazy or eccentric.  It was odd that he accepted Blago's offer, but he now looks like the smartest guy in Illinois.  If Reid gives him some good assignments and he stays away from divisive talk about race like he has, he has a good chance of winning in '10.

Agree. Watching him on CSPAN gave me a pretty favorable impression.

Nope. Jindal is the best candidate for backwoods fundies.

Ideologically, sure. But stuck with a choice between a black and a Punjab, they aren't going to turn out and Jindal will lose.

Not saying this is quite a direct comparison, but Louisiana does have the Punjab as its governor even though they voted against the black.

I'm not sure he's the most electable on this list, but don't just quickly write off Jindal, guys. He's intelligent and a capable leader; if his organizational talent displays itself in his (hypothetical) presidential campaign then he could give Obama a run for his money.

Not recognizing BRTD's new username, when I first saw this thread I assumed someone was making a satiric BRTD-esque poll.

There's CSPAN of course. Georgia Legislative Network airs online, I doubt it but it might be on public tv or something. I think the county government's meetings air on local public access. And, I don't live in a city.

As for college, I have no idea about the status of Louisiana or New Orleans parish/city.

Franzl: 277 EVs
Naso: 260 EVs
Hashemite: 1 EV

Although votesplitting between Franzl and Hashemite allows Naso to win several close states with a plurality, it isn't enough for him to win. Although Hashemite mostly serves as a spoiler, upstate Maine goes for him since they're practically Canada anyway.

11918  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Is carbon dioxide really a dangerous pollutant? on: January 11, 2009, 03:51:11 am
Lol, yes, but in this case the "certain degree" is an insanely extreme degree that no politician would ever actually go to.

Regulating greenhouse gas output from factories doesn't exactly equal establishing breath monitors on babies, or whatever.

I don't see how establishing the fact carbon dioxide can be a pollutant is in any way similar to North Korea's totalitarianism.

11922  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: A question for Democrats on: January 11, 2009, 01:24:53 am
I have a very bad feeling about '12.

History shows that Obama will not be re-elected in 2012.  We have not had three 8-year presidents since FDR/Truman/Ike and before that, IIRC, was Jefferson/Madison/Monroe.

Of course, he could always die or resign before the end of his second term, in which case he wouldn't be an 8-year president.  Part of the reason why we haven't had many consecutive 8-year presidencies is because presidents used to die in office more frequently.

Yes we went from 1932 to 1976 with out an incumbent President being defeated.

Or, to state that in a different way, only a single incumbent Democrat lost reelection in the 20th century.

Do you think there is somewhere I could exchange dollars into Zimbabwean currency? It'd be kinda neat to have a $50 billion bill.

It's kind of silly to assume everything goes by state lines, and even sillier to assume that a congressional district of all things makes the lone exception to that.
11925  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Largest differences between neighboring counties of various characteristics on: January 11, 2009, 01:13:20 am
I was thinking of Hancock-and-Glascock the other day, but couldn't quite tell whether they actually bordered each other or not.

I looked up twelve different county maps of Georgia; eight had them unambiguously bordering, and four (including our own) were unclear either way. None had them unambiguously not bordering. And Wikipedia says that they border each other. So I'm satisfied.

And it would be interesting to know the history of why Glascock County ended up overwhelmingly white while its surroundings are demographically mixed (or overwhelmingly black in the case of Hancock).

It's a small county in a region with extreme racial segregation. My guess would be that it's so small that it happens just by chance to encompass a white area without any black areas.
