Meet The Candidates!

Current State Of The National Race:

'All Dead Inside Now' still commands an insurmountable advantage over all.
Obama edges both Mitt and Gingrich; Mitt gaining more ground over Gingrich.

Despair not. A new candidate has thrown his enormous bulk into the field. A Mr. SMOD. Campaign announcement materials received by AOSHQ are below the fold.

"Howdy! I am an enormous chunk of rock hurtling through space for now, but hoping for a chance to profoundly change the world for the better. I want to stop the partisan sniping and bickering of rivals that characterizes the political process. And I want you to never have to vote for the lesser of two evils ever again.

My platform: Death. To expunge. The annihilation of all life on Earth. Some say I am naive and doomed to failure, since bacteria, certain ocean creatures, and some insects will surely survive my planet-wracking onslaught. I concede that my critics may technically have a point.

But the truth is, I've always been a 'half-a-loaf-of-bread-is-better-than-none' kind of guy."

SMOD: An End To Politics As Usual. Forever.


This Candidate Has Been Endorsed By The Sierra Club™


Oh, my. My, my. Hm. I like how he said, "Howdy."

That connects powerfully to a) the Heartland demographic who b) wants the world to end suddenly in violent chaos as soon as possible.
Shrewd. Very well played.
Well!

Looks like All Dead Inside seems to have some competition now, eh Morons!
Oh, this is going to be a lively race indeed. We will be sure to keep you updated as to Mr. SMOD's progress. We're going to be guessing his trajectory and selling squares for placing bets on the impact location at the Amazon store.

The top prize will be that you were right about something just before death. That will be a very nifty moment for you.

On to our regularly scheduled Meet The Candidates Revival Post.

In 2010, we ran an occasional showcase for Moron-approved House and Senate candidates and hey why not, let's do it again.

In the comments below, please name the candidates running for national office that you like, preferably from your state, but not necessarily, if they're really that exciting to you.

I will compile a list of your recommendations and try to showcase one or two of them on a weekly or biweekly basis. If you could include a little url or two in there to help me out research-wise that would be great, because there are going to be a lot of these and it's already a pretty time-consuming project.

If you're too embarrassed to publicly admit who you are supporting, you may email me directly at laura w tips AT hot mail DOOT COOM.

9 On a more serious note, while I hate my choices for President, and while I'm somewhat conflicted in who is the least bad choice for Senate here in TX, I'm positively stoked at having to decide between Michael and Roger Williams (no relation to each other) in my congressional district.

It's hard to decide because they both bring so much to the table.

I'm supporting Keith Rothfus. He's running for Congress in the newly formed PA-12.
Pennsylvania lost a House seat in redistricting, so they merged PA-4 and PA-12 into the new PA-12.
The old PA-12 was Jack Murtha's district.
Both PA-4 and PA-12 have democratic Representatives, Jason Altmire and Mark Critz. They will have to run against each other in a primary since the districts were merged.

Keith Rothfus ran in 2010 against Altmire and lost by about 3,000 votes. He's running again, unopposed in the primaries. He's a Reagan conservative.
I spent two hours with him yesterday walking door to door getting petitions signed to ensure he's on the ballot.

75 The government faces a fourth year of trillion-plus deficits in 2012, according to new projections released Tuesday—numbers which also show little relief in the future unless Washington comes to grips with needed changes in its tax and spending policies.

Like Aunt Cassandra coming down from the attic, the Congressional Budget Office steps square into the 2012 campaign season with the 147-page report which might have been subtitled “It’s not just the economy stupid, it’s also the debt.”
e


Under this scenario—which can’t be ruled out politically—deficits would stubbornly hover just under $1 trillion through 2017 adding another $4.7 trillion altogether to the mounting federal debt.

Under the more prudent—and many would say unrealistic scenario of ending tax breaks and implementing cuts—the cumulative deficits would be $1.72 trillion or $3 trillion less from 2013-2017. But even this path comes with a warning from CBO: that debt service costs are already on the rise and will command a ever greater share of the annual budget.

“The federal budget remains out of balance throughout the decade,” the report reads. “The resulting accumulation of debt, along with rising interest rates, drives up the cost of financing that debt; in CBO’s projections, net interest costs grow significantly from 1.4 percent of GDP this year to 2.5 percent in 2022.”

94 My Rep for the House, Randy Nougat-bar, is a mostly insignificant wimp who is never heard of near as I can tell. I can never get his position on anything--even with google, faxes and emails.
There was that one time he was caught saying, "It's a baby-killer." or somesuch back around the Obamacare debate.

But, I never see his name leading anything.

The impression I get is he somehow or other has a significant personal wealth and good connections with the cotton farmers. Which pretty much means the office is his until retirement. As long as he always votes for the current Farm Bill welfare handout.

I've met him a few times, a nice grandpa-with-hearing-aids fellow.

99 Dont know where to put this, but the Occupy camp at the Charlotte City Courthouse was cleaned out yesterday.

The DNC will be here this summer - looks like they are cleaning them out to give time for the damage they have done to the grass to heal. They've been there since the OWS movement started; I can think of no other reason they would decide to remove them, given they have been there for months already.

What's awesome is our Mayor is a Democrat. Sorry, OW guys, can't pin this on Republicans.

I'm hoping they show up for the DNC in force and make a real nuisance of themselves.

106 ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ)—Maryland’s gas prices could soon be going sky high. The governor has recommended applying sales tax to gas, and it could pump up prices more than 20 cents a gallon.

Meghan McCorkell has more on this controversial plan.

On Monday, the governor announced a proposal to apply the state’s 6 percent sales tax to gasoline.

The state already levies a 23.5-cent gas tax, and the sales tax proposal would be on top of that to generate new revenue for transportation infrastructure needs. The O’Malley administration said the proposal would raise the price of gas by about 6 cents a gallon in the first year, 12 cents in the second year and about 18 cents in the third year.

I say if Maryland wants to continue to vote for democrats, well fuck em. I hope they enjoy paying more for gas. Hey look over here at NJ, come on over, cheap gas

I'm sure he's plenty Conservative. I just inherently distrust lawyers writing laws. Sorry, it's the truth.

Honestly, of my available choices, I think he is my number one, it's just that isn't a very high bar.

205 Today, President Obama proposed taking 10% of SMOD's mass and redistributing it to smaller meteors.

In a prepared statement released to the press, Obama outlined his proposal as "A matter of fairness", stating that "We do not begrudge the size of meteors able to wipe out all life on Earth, we merely ask that SMOD give it's fair share to smaller meteorites that struggle every day to penetrate our atmosphere."

Republican is John Koster. I was going to back James Watkins who ran and lost in 2010 to incumbent Jay Inslee but Watkins who I think is the better candidate, in a very classy move bowed out to help run Kosters campaign.
Due to a redrawing of the district and Inslee deciding he would rather get his ass kicked running for governor instead of running for re election, the Republican candidate has a chance this time.

"Yeah, scrunt, because a sonogram is anywhere near as invasive as those to procedures"



In fairness, it depends on the type of sonogram. There is one for early pregnancy that is very...ummm..invasive.

Posted by: Mandy P. voted and is All Dead Inside now at January 31, 2012 11:24 AM (qFpRI)

A vaginal ultrasound IS invasive, and a vector for infection, from beta strep, resistant yeast, e-coli, staph, etx, and viruses. Unlike sterile surgical instruments, there is no putting a transponder in an autoclave.

Even in good practices maintaining standards of high level disinfection is difficult and time consuming and operators make mistakes in sterile technique allowing condoms or gloves to touch cabinet, table or keyboard surfaces. The poly sheath covers are notorious for breaking and exposing patients. Ususally a condom is employed instead - latex can cause reactions from minor irritation to death, but polyurethane condoms strong enough to resist breaking would be used only in patients with known allergies as they are expensive. The gel in the transponder crevices is not always scrubbed out between uses and there is risk of contamination of the gel on the outside; even good doctor's offices do not always use single use packs for that (if they don't, get off the table, and flee)
and since the transponder can not be sterilized, and cost thousands of dollars, even run of the mill Ob gyn practices often cut corners.Mandating an unecessary invasive procedure like transvaginal ultrasound, that increases risk with no corresponding medical benefit to the treated patient is not only monkeying with the doctor patient relationship but increasing the risks of harm to the patient. I couldn't support that, especially when it has next to no impact on a woman's decision to end a really early pregnancy.

242 Not too many interesting races in Michigan for Republicans. The state passed an incumbent protection map, mostly to shore up Tim Walberg and Thad McCotter, but which rollbacks gains we made in 2010 with strong challenges to John Dingell and Dale Kildee. We did eliminate a Dem seat in Southeast Michigan though. With that said, Dan Benishek in the UP could use some help defending his seat in a rematch with Bart Stupak-clone Gary McDowell, and for the Senate, Pete Hoekstra is looking like he'll be the man to try to unseat Debbie Stabenow.

243 In PA, the GOPGov. Tom Corbett, elected in the 2010 Tea Party wave, strong-armed the endorsement of Steve Welch for Senate, to take on incumbant Bob Casey.

State Committee rank and file, thepeons who man the phones and knock on doors, were shoved aside.

Steve Welch became a Democrat in 2008 to vote for Obama. That is the party establishment's choice for Senate.

I don't know how many of the other Republicans are staying in the race, but when I find out I will pass them on. Pathetic.

Absolutely. Anyone can run. Often whoever is lucky enough to draw the top one or two ballot positions wins. Same with taking over county GOP committees. You just have to run in your precinct -- basically the size of a few neighborhoods. That's where things get done. Not on the internet. (Love ya, Ace.)
