Overnight Open Thread (3 Nov 2012)

Pathetic. Benghazi A Blip On Media's Radar. A whole bunch of so-called journalists should just hang it up after this. 8 weeks out and still barely any coverage outside of Fox. Oh sure, WaPo and CBS are starting to cover it. But just barely. Heads need to roll for this.

Disgusting that their political party and allegiance to it is more important than the lives of 4 Americans and getting out the truth as to what exactly happened. Funny, it wasn't too long ago that CIA leaks were front page news when they slammed Bush. When they paint Obama in a bad light? Not so much.

Also note that with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy getting nastier for those coping with the recovery, Obama isn't taking pictures anymore with FEMA or hanging out in the Situation Room. Hell, he's not even Taking Questions About Storm Victims' Frustrations. All that early praise for FEMA? Maybe just a hair to fast there MSM. FEMA Taps Private Vendors To Deliver Water. On Monday. So much for that prior planning. I guess a weeks notice that a major storm is going to hit the east coast isn't enough. I'm pretty sure by Day 6 with Katrina, Bush was being blamed in the news 24/7. Obama, not so much. I guess Geraldo is a bit distracted saving his Koi.

Dangers Of Robot Attachment

Man, it is only going to get worse when the robot hookers show up. The Danger Of Falling For A Machine That's Just Not Into You.

So it’s no surprise that people become attached to these robots. What is surprising is just how attached some have become. Researchers have documented people kissing their mechanized companions, confiding in them, giving them gifts—and being heartbroken when the robot breaks, or the study ends and it’s time to say good-bye.

And this is just the beginning. What happens as robots become ever more responsive, more humanlike? Some researchers worry that people—especially groups like autistic kids or elderly shut-ins who already are less apt to interact with others—may come to prefer their mechanical friends over their human ones.

Are we really ready for this relationship?

Political Poll Analysis

This is a pretty good write up. Politics: On Polling Models, Skewed And Unskewed.

Different sets of polls are, more or less, describing two alternate universes in terms of what the 2012 electorate will look like, one strongly favorable to Obama, one essentially decisive in favor of Romney. The pro-Obama view requires a number of things to happen that are effectively unprecedented in electoral history, but Nate Silver argues that we should trust them because state poll averages have a better track record in other elections than national polls. The pro-Romney view, by contrast, simply assumes that things have gone wrong in a number of the polls' samples that have gone wrong before.

Baseballcrank does let Nate Silver off way too easy though.

Trailer #2

A Good Day To Die Hard. Hey, it's got the music, explosions, machine guns, wisecracks, gunships and even boobehs. Just missing a member of the Gruber family. I think.

In other movie news, Castle Wolfenstein Movie In Development. Hopefully, it will be better than the Doom movie. The potential is there for a good movie.

Kitteh Profiling

Y'all kitteh lovers are a bunch of profilers. Judging A Cat (Wrongly) By The Color Of Their Coat.

Some trends appeared in the data. Orange kitties were perceived as friendly and rated low in the aloof and shy categories. (They were also considered more trainable than were white cats, although the idea that anyone considers a cat trainable is kind of funny. Or am I betraying my own bias here?) Tri-colored cats rated high in aloofness and intolerance, and white cats were also considered aloof, as well as shy and calm. And bi-colored cats–which could have been any color, really, in the participants’ minds–were thought to be friendly. The data for black cats, however, was a bit muddier and no clear trends emerged.

Ginger puncher.

Meanwhile, another cat fight is brewing. Lady Gaga vs Adele.

Adele is bigger than me, how come nobody says anything about it?

Um, maybe because Adele actually has talent.

On this date in history, the Sitting President of the United States, and Candidate for Re-Election, Barack Obama, stated "Voting is the best revenge" ...

... against what, or who, he did not make clear.

The leading guess for who Candidate Mitt Romney, and/or those who would vote for Mitt Romney.

The reason? Mitt Romney dares, in the American tradition, to run against Barack Obama ... or perhaps American Citizens dare, in the American tradition, to vote against Barack Obama.

Thank God the Citizen Defense Force, or whatever O called it, as powerful and well-funded as the US military, never came to pass.

Vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan on November 6.

Get as many people as you can to vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan on November 6.

76 Nevada Early Voting Ends

Early voting has finished in Nevada. With the exception of late arriving absentee ballots, all that is left are the votes on election day.

This is where we stand: After completion of Early Voting, the Democrats have a raw voter lead in early voting of just under 48K statewide. Early vote ballots were cast by 50% of all active registered voters. If absentee ballots (received and counted as of Saturday morning before the election) are included, then 56% of all active registered voters have voted. If we see a turnout of about 80%, that means that 63% (nearly 2/3 of all votes) have been cast by early voting, and 70% of all votes are already in. This leaves only 30% of the electorate voting on election day (or by late absentee).

The democrats early vote lead statewide is at 9%, which is about 2% above their registration advantage in the state. Their lead in Clark County is at 16%, or about 1% above their registration advantage of 15%. Washoe gives the Democrats a 1/2% advantage in early votes, for a county that is essentially even in registration.. If the early absentees are included, the Democrat advantage drops to about 7% statewide, to about 141/2% in Clark County, and becomes a net disadvantage in Washoe of about 1/2%.

With Washoe being a wash, only the 25% raw voter lead for the Republicans in the rural counties, or about 22K votes so far, has blunted the 70K advantage the Democrats have in Clark County.

For Clark County, the raw voter advantage for the Democrats has dropped from 82K in 2008 to 70K in 2012, though the total number of early votes has increased nearly 93K votes. This leaves the Democrats advantage in Clark County as a bit over 70% of what it was in 2008. That is still massive and dwarfs what the rest of the state could do.

Again, for Clark County, the 141/2% Democrat raw voter edge is 70% of what they had in 2008 (i.e. 21%). In 2008, their 21% edge fell to 141/2% after all votes were tallied. If we assume an 80% turnout, with a decrease in overall raw vote advantage to 70% of what it is in the early votes, we get a Democratic advantage of just over 10% overall, which would give the Democrats an election day lead of 85K

The rural counties have has a total turnout so far of 53% of active registered voters, which would mean that 2/3 of their vote is in, again assuming an 80% turnout. This would increase the Republicans lead amongst the rural counties to about 33K. If we are generous and bump that up to 35K, than the total Democratic raw vote lead after the election would be around 50K, or just over 5% of the vote. Jon Ralston has said that the rural counties could get to 40K, so that shaves the Democrats advantage in raw vote numbers to about 41/2%. Since Sen. Heller has been running about 4-6% behind Romney, thus making the Nevada Senate race a true toss-up.

This is why registration matters. Between the June primary, and the close of voter registration for the November election, the Democrat’s voter registration lead increased by 230%, adding 50K more voters than Republicans. If these new voters have an 80% turnout, that is 40K voters the Democrats would not have had if their registration advantage had been what it was in the primary. Their projected raw vote lead of 45K would have dropped to only 5K and a margin of less than 1% of the total vote; this would have made Nevada eminently winnable for Romney, and a slam sunk for Sen. Heller.

The 5% advantage is only in raw voters of Democrats over Republicans, and assumes that the difference in cross-over votes is negligible, and that the independents split 50/50. The polls for the independents have ranged from R+18% to D+20%.

However, a perhaps more ominous parallel than to 2008 would be 2010. Though Sen. Reid won the Senate seat in 2010, the Republicans did decently, with their assembly candidates winning more votes than the Democrats. In that election, the Democrats raw voter advantage in Clark County of early votes was within 1% of what their final advantage was after election day. If the Democrats 141/2% lead remains unchanged, their election day vote advantage in raw votes will be almost 100K. If we assume that the rural counties still net 40K votes for the Republicans, the Democrats lead would still be 60K (again assuming Washoe remains a wash), and a vote advantage of over 6%, which would bode ill for Sen. Heller.

The Republicans have claimed that they would win the state if they keep the Democrats Clark County raw voter total to less than 80K. For this to be the case, the Republicans will have to be sure of having an election day ground game that dwarfs anything they’ve demonstrated in early voting, win a large chunk of Democrat voters, AND win independents by a large margin.

Are the Republicans mathematically doomed at this point? No, though it will require that everything goes very, very right on election day. What will they have to do? To win, the Republicans will have to improve to a degree that has not yet been evident, or the Democrats will have to implode before election day.

To have any hope of victory, the Republicans will have to do things: 1st, win the election day votes in Washoe by a convincing margin; 2nd, get the rurals to turnout just as well, if not better, than they have already; 3rd, keep the election day raw voter edge a draw in Clark County, if not outright win it; 4th, win far more Democrats for Romney, then Obama will get of the Republicans; and 5th, win the independent voters by a large margin. This is a tall order, but it is the minimum they will have to do.

85 Adele may not be svelte or classically beautiful, but she carries herself well and her weight suits her. She may be a little bit on the heavier side, but she's not obese, as far as I can tell. We can't all be a size 2.

I think a lot of black voters are going to do that.

Get this, Oregon is all vote by mail. So the post office in Oregon decided they'd deliver the ballots whether they are paid for with the proper postage or not - or even HAVE a stamp.

The secretary of state sent them a letter telling them to not deliver those ballots any more because it violates state law and the US Constitution.

The postmaster wrote them back and said "shut up, there is no such violation and we're going to keep delivering" and made the letter public.

Now the SoS is claiming she never did anything of the kind!

Orange cats are very aggressive. Tortoiseshell are mischievous.


****

I have a lot of experience with cats and it has also been my experience that orange cats are more aggressive or, perhaps, more anxious which leads them to react with less-than-pleasant reflexes.

On the one hand, they wail about the plight of the poor caught in the storm, and then tell us how the beautiful people like Anna Wintour managed to soldier on

They have written about "Three New Yorks" in regards to the storm. Those largely unaffected (above 40th St), "Dry but Dark" (East Village, Greenwich Village), and "Underwater" (Battery Park)

Those Three New Yorks they speak of still only concern Manhattan, which is the Center of the Universe to the MSM

Oh God, yes. If you ask her, I'll bet she'll finally admit that she feels like she's going insane. Snappish, no patience, really quick to cry, all kinds of fun stuff. Coupled with that is feeling like you have no control over how you are reacting to things. The best way to describe it is that you feel like everything is in a fog and you can't fight your way through.


I'll warn you now, if it is thyroid, the first several weeks of being on the meds can be difficult. The only way I can describe it is that it's like suddenly coming awake. Hopefully it won't be that bad, but mood swings are not uncommon.

200 The true difference between Lady Gagme and Adele is that the Gagme monster runs around stage in her underwear, so that people don't look at her ugly face or listen to her awful music. Adele has a marvelous voice, and good choices when it comes to songs, so she can keep her clothes on and not offend people just by being alive.


Pretty clear to me.


Adele may be a pig in some respects, but not on stage, so far as I have seen. I have yet to see that Gagme monster do a single thing with any class at all.

Cat Genetics
101

My sixteen year old (from his current biology studies)talked about thisat lunch today...For a cat to be orange, it must have ALL "X" chromosomes.

Since Males only have one X chromosome (XY) it is not hard to find one who's
"orange" switch is turned on. Since females have TWOX chromosomes,
it's statistically harder to find them with BOTH "orange" swiches
flipped to on. Therefore, about 75% of orange cats are male and 25% are
female.



Calico, on the other hand can ONLY come in a cat that has twoX chromosomes. That's
why they are almost always female.. sometimes a genetic mutation occurs where a
cat is XXY and will appear male, and can be calico (because it has two x's) for
a cat to have orange/cream AND black/grey on the same cat it MUST have two x
chromosomes.

The good thing about thyroid stuff is that it is pretty easy to treat. A little pill every day and done. Get blood work to follow up every few months and there you go.


If her hair's thinning, that generally does grow back in. If she gets her hair colored, make sure she tells her stylist. The reason I'm so obsessive about getting full cut and color every six weeks isn't just the whole problem with the entire universe seeing my roots but because color bleeds right out. The color my hair is now will be about four shades lighter in six weeks.

281 1) Obama supporters, to an individual, are very angry people.

Nighthawk

I've noticed that myself. I saw it on the faces of early voters (the ones I presumed to be voting for Obama i.e., many black voters) in OKC on Friday. The tension in the air was palpable. I saw black faces that (to my eyes) seemed like they wanted to unleash hell on someone.

I'm trying to figure out why.

Got into a little "go around" with a younger black female co-worker a few weeks back regarding Obama and his lies about Benghazi and the anger was just pouring out of her. It semed to infuriate her that anyone could have a negative opinion of Obama. She got so irrational in the argument that I just gave up trying to reason with her.

Fascinating. As Spock might say.

293 If her hair's thinning, that generally does grow back in. If she gets her hair colored, make sure she tells her stylist. The reason I'm so obsessive about getting full cut and color every six weeks isn't just the whole problem with the entire universe seeing my roots but because color bleeds right out. The color my hair is now will be about four shades lighter in six weeks.


I think she has complained that she seems to be "losing" more hair than normal, but she has so much that you can't tell. She already gets the color pretty regularly.

This went on way longer than it should have because a lot of the symptoms we chalked up to stress. (this year involved a lot of fam conflict. Close member was walked out on, reconciled and ultimately tossed the offending party out. Lots of kids,, mine and theirs, were at least partially involved. We r working through all those things now.)

He pissed off Preibus and the other Republican leadership so much that he won't have any power, but he will vote the right way. That's a win-win.

Be mindful of the meds you take. They are cheap, which is great, but if your insurance company wants you to change brands after you have another brand dialed in, avoid it. Pharmacists will confirm this. One brand does not always perform the same as another. Don't know why.

362 Hey, I have an orange cat, and that little fucker is the most undignified, friendly cat I've ever known. He cuddles up to strangers, insists on sitting in peoples' laps, and as I write this he's perched behind my head and purring up a storm.

My last cat was a multicolored dark guy, all stripy, and he was an aggressive streetwise bastard.

The lesson here is that sometimes stereotypes are correct. I denounce myself, and will be reporting to my nearest Democrat headquarters for a full debriefing and attitude readjustment.

370 Orange coloring is sex based - an orange cat is likely to be a male. Thus if you meet one outside it is more likely to be a Tom cruising or defending his turf.

Torties and Calicos are virtually always female. The orange override gene comes out in patches due to X inactivation.

Re: thyroid issues and hypothyroidism. I've dealt with mild, but escalating hypothyroidism for 15+ years.



Be mindful of the meds you take. They are cheap, which is great, but
if your insurance company wants you to change brands after you have
another brand dialed in, avoid it. Pharmacists will confirm this. One
brand does not always perform the same as another. Don't know why.

Posted by: Tobacco Road at November 03, 2012 11:08 PM (4Mv1T)

VERY IMPORTANT! For whatever reason, the generics are NOT the same, so if you are on, say, Synthroid, you need to stick with that brand. When my mom started having serious health problems and spent time in the hospital, they'd switch her to Levothyroxine (the generic), and it really made a (bad) difference. Once I figured out what they had done, I raised hell, but it was a fight I had to repeat every time she was in a different hospital or had a different doc.

418 Cat Genetics
101

My sixteen year old (from his current biology studies)talked about thisat lunch today...For a cat to be orange, it must have ALL "X" chromosomes.

Since Males only have one X chromosome (XY) it is not hard to find one who's
"orange" switch is turned on. Since females have TWOX chromosomes,
it's statistically harder to find them with BOTH "orange" swiches
flipped to on. Therefore, about 75% of orange cats are male and 25% are
female.



Calico, on the other hand can ONLY come in a cat that has twoX chromosomes. That's
why they are almost always female.. sometimes a genetic mutation occurs where a
cat is XXY and will appear male, and can be calico (because it has two x's) for
a cat to have orange/cream AND black/grey on the same cat it MUST have two x
chromosomes.

Posted by: Semi-New Moron. at November 03, 2012 10:53 PM (mkb9H)

Another way you can get a tortie/calico male is by mosaic-ing. Basically two embryos merge into one cat, one with an orange on the X and the no orange on the other.

Black color shades are actually their own gene elsewhere, not sex based. So an orange male can pass on a shade of black trait.

CDR with all respect. The pictures and the sounds of the people suffering on Staten Island and New York is being seen everywhere. Please STOP WITH THE MSM..it needs to end. I am so sick of this from the right. STOP you darn whining and crying about it not being fair. GOD it is like some keep thinking it will change. IT IS NEVER GOING TO CHANGE! Stop wishing for it, commenting on it and using the MSM as your punching board.

Here is an idea....use your BLOG to post about the images in New York and Jersey...stop with the MSM crying song. It is like Groundhog day with conservatives. It is pathetic. You act like little cry babies.

I just could care less about the MSM. There are too many conservatives that bash the MSM but verify their existence but what it does or does not cover. It occupiers well over 75 percent of the comments and it is childish.

Grow Up...Accept the MSM for what it is and use your BLOG for good! Use it to focus on the suffering so that others can see and understand. That is much more effective then doing the MSM Crying Song.

There are so many images of the poor suffering in the Northeast that the MSM is irrelevant. It is funny their ratings are in the toilet yet so many obsess with their coverage with a dwindling audience.

The internet and blogs DOMINATE the news cycle...not the MSM. People from all over America saw Obama do his Photo-Op and many thought oh he looks Presidential...but now they see he is nowhere to be found 3 days later, he is off campaigning...while so many Americans have no food, water, clothes, shelter, gas and are crying for help and WHERE IS HE?

Spouting the most incriminating and devestating remark of the campaign...VOTE FOR REVENGE!! The single worst comment you could use as a President which totally destroyed his "Presidential Look" and showed the people who are suffering and to all Americans who he really is. Obama is the most narcissistic and selfish man to ever occupy the WH and in the closing days he looks smaller, nastier and partisan...and where is Christie now...RATIONING GAS!! Christie thought about himself Weds now he looks as bad as Obama...utterly incompetent. Same with Doomberg! What a loser Trifecta!

You do not the MSM to see that...turn on your Computer it is everywhere...and thank goodness to FOX as well!

Its worse than that - they don't ovulate when they go into heat - they need the pain of the barbs on the male cat's penis to trigger the eggs. Takes some hours.

478 Jewells45- The thing is there are less expensive versions of Synthroid that work. You just need to schedule blood-work after about 60 days of whatever brand you switch to. A cheaper, more insurance friendly version of Synthroid might work for you. Only the blood work can tell. (Although I can tell when I get colder than usual at the same a/c setting in the house, or my freaking hair falls out even faster than usual.)

That's true - I think the important thing is to stick with the same brand - whether it's Synthroid or one of the generics, just be sure it's the same company. The problem can come when the insurance company changes formularies.Forgot about the cold thing - I had always been the type to keep the A/C on Frigid, and then I started freezing - really freaked me out.

Interesting drive around my area--even though I live in NY, I've seen 6 empty chairs well out on lawns, an unmistakeable statement plus 20 Romney signs with 1 Obama (small). Don't have any confidence that NY will flip, but will bet that Obama's percentage is going to be quite a bit smaller.

From the enthusiasm standpoint, it looks as if down ticket is going to do well.

Posted by: Elizabethe custard/longbow at November 03, 2012 11:38 PM (TOBhV)

They were a litter. Since we have been married, we have had 3 cats. We lost two of them about a year apart, and MrsCaniac decided we needed to get another 2 to keep the remaining one company, especially since my mom and stepdad decided to give me a puppy the year before. Her parents had a stray show up and have a litter of 3 kittens, and MrsCaniac told them she wanted 2 of them. She went to pick them up, she got home, opened the carrier, and three black heads popped up. Right after that, the remaining kitty got sick and we had to put her to sleep.

640 POP @595, I don't think I've ever heard Barry use "an" before a word that begins with a vowel. I really don't think he knows the word exists.

Posted by: chique-Dave d'afrique (the artist formerly known as african chick) at November 03, 2012 11:51 PM (6zgse)


Yeah ... I used to mention that all the time. Barky uses the "aaaay" construction for "an" - when he's off-TOTUS, at least; he's fine with "an" when he's reading. But I was about the only person who ever noticed and finally stopped mentioning it. I'm glad to see that others picked it up and remembered it. They clean the "aaay"s up in all the transcripts for him, too.

700 Seriously, LSU's coaches called the following plays:

1. A fake field goal on 4th and 12 when he could have kicked a 47 yarder instead (didn't work);

2. Tried a 54 yarder that was outside the kicker's range right before half time that gave Bama a short field and led to a TD in the last minute (didn't work);

3. An onside kick after going up 14-10 (didn't work);

4. Passed on a makeable FG in favor of rushing the wildcat team on a 4th and 2 play while up by 3 (didn't work); and

5. Played prevent and then blitzed McCarron on the last drive and gave up the go ahead touchdown on a 73 yard drive that took only 35 seconds.

Unbelievable. Saban may be a prick but he is ten times the coach that Miles is. Anytime LSU play another team that is well-coached they are inevitably out-coached because Miles is a fucking moron.

Glad to hear everything is okay. We were without power for three freaking weeks a few years back in February when a monster ice storm came through. It was a cast-iron bitch, too, because we're all on well water, so naturally the pumps didn't work and we had no running water, either. And it got way below freezing at night. We just sortof wandered around in a stupor all day...

Tammy,

Life is good here in Colorado. I was in the process to buy a house but that fell through, so now I'm living in a one bedroom apartment. No dancing, although I did check out the local tango group a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully in another month or so I'll have my finances in order and can start taking lessons again. The Colorado Springs dance scene is pretty sparse, and I can't afford to drive up to Denver every weekend

Posted by: Peaches


It's both!

It's a floorwax and a pancake syrup!
Democrats more often vote early so that is good for them unless the turnout is low and/or the early exits say republicans are also suddenly voting early (which is happening in some places). That means the party faithful on the Left are voting now while independents are voting early to the Right and the GOP has yet to go to the polls.

This is how I read it but I'm not a pollster so YMMV.

She was only caught because she used her real name twice. When the poll workers checked her name it showed that she had already voted.

All she had to do to get away with it is register a fictitious person and vote the second time as that fictitious person, and no one would be able to do anything unless by some freak chance a poll observer was traveling between sites and just happened to go to both the ones she went to at the same time.

Long branch is 30 min from me, but nobody is really talking about it as they are other areas, so my guess is its just a lack of power being the reason you can't get through. The shore got wasted bad. A lot of beach areas don't even exist anymore, just wiped off the map.

Nearly allpolls showing Obama win with just a couple days to go. Lets face it, be prepared for an early night like in 2008. The polls were right that year and there's no reason for them to be wrong this time. Its a little tiring of hearing conspiracy on nearly every poll. Not all of them are skewed and they can't all be wrong.
Perhaps we'll do better in 2016.

812 Elizabeth: BSG should've left it at the end of season 2. I keep saying that, I know.

But here's an idea how season 3+ should have gone. The settlers in tundraworld could have mounted a resistance. Maybe a few hundred of the survivors were outside the main camp / city, hunting seal. "Wolverines" etc.

If BSG couldn't do it, they should have let the fanfic authors do it.

818 So I'm looking to sift through early voter results data for the various swing states. I've found the actual SoS returns PDF for Nevada Cook Political's Google Doc for absentee returns in VA. Navigating the other states SoS County election websites to find the 2012 returns is a pain in the ass (If I ever meet the team behind NV's election results I want to shake their hand so much easier to find). Can anyone provide links for Colorado (either county by county for the major counties, or preferably statewide), Ohio, Iowa, Florida?

Posted by: John at November 04, 2012 12:27 AM (eqJxk)

819 790 Early voting is strange this year. There are reports that Obama has been sending high propensity voters to vote early. That will leave him with very few voters on election day. Romney has been targeting low propensity voters leaving his original voter base to turnout on election day. We shall see if this is true in Nevada for example. But it's looking very good in other swing states.

Obama wins big and early. He will get a surprise win in Virginia, take Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Iowa. Polls will show to be correct just like last time. You can discount a poll or two, but to think all of them are bs is just stupid.
I'm sure there was just as much whining about polls and samples on 2008. We all know how that turned out. Seriously, some of you same ones not buying the polls and their samples this time, most likely did the same thing in 08.

Its easy to get on the good side of a Russian, they are very open, emotional, and vigorous people. I love em, as self destructive as they are. I learned the language for 5 years, but its been decades and I barely remember now. I'd pick it up soon enough if I lived in Russia I suppose.

People are great everywhere, really. Even the French - as long as you stay out of the cities. That's true most everywhere though. Avoid urban areas and you'll find good people all over. That's where you learn about the real culture, too. Cities are basically the same everywhere.

899 Regarding vote fraud:

A liberal friend of ours serves as an election judge, and was telling us about all the counting and double-checking they do and how there is always one Repub and one Dem present. He says he doesn't see how any fraud could possibly occur with this system.

What he doesn't take into account is that we are in a deep red area, and our Secretary of State is a Republican.

976 I think people are over emphasizing these little last minute pieces of BS their impact on the elections. Christie hugging Obama is not on the level of the Bush DUI story, it's likely to have little impact on the results.

The big thing is, is Obama's strategy of banking his best voters early cannibalizing his vote wasting his money? I don't see how spending all that time money on people who are going to vote for you almost no matter what actually wins you the election.

Romney says he's focusing on GOPers who don't vote reliably most likely the stay home GOPers from 2008, they didnt like Obama but McCain sucked, Bush sucked etc. If he gets these guys out, who probably voted for Bush in 04 (remember population change in Ohio since 2000 is negligible at ~2%), I think he has a very good shot. I don't buy this bullshit that evangelicals are not excited about Romney. I think in OH GOP/Dems split Indies with a slight advantage for Romney.

If I'm right Romney wins OH. Pros are saying he wins VA FL right now. Biggest up in the airs are CO IA (other than OH). He wins one of those this game is done.

I think us cons are being eeyore again, we're a very pessimistic lot.

IF we win this, it's going to be based on turnout. Because Obama has the last-minute momentum, a point I've been making for a week (prior to which I was gloating to my Democrat friends, something which I've had to stop doing).

Posted by: Dave Garroway at November 04, 2012 01:02 AM (2c1Cq)

1008 We'll find out what happens in the election in just about exactly 36 hours. I'm about 1% as confident as Jack, or Wayne Allen Root. For one thing, I don't trust Florida, they've screwed us 3 times in a row. Provided McCain with the nomination, then elected the POS we have now. I guess thats two times in a row, unless I'm forgetting something. Still, don't trust the state whatsoever.

Ohio, full of idiots, I live here, I know. With the exception of a few people, they're all apolitical and not following the race. The dems I know here are dumb as a rock, combined, but know one thing for sure, Romney is "for the rich, and wants to outlaw abortion and contraceptive. Obamaphone lady is the typical dem IQ in the state, perhaps even above average IQ. Xome visit her neighborhood sometime, she stands out like an Einstein compared to most. I don't trust that the Romney people will show up on Tues. in numbers enough to counteract the non-thinking robo-dems. The only possible hope would be for a Huckabee style surprise turnout from the religious people in both parties voting for Romney.

PA, no ne is mentioning it, but voting in PA is ID free this time. You can go there and get all their electoral votes for yourself with enough made up names and enough time to cast the votes. Or more realistically, many will be voting multiple times for Zero. Technically a five year old could vote in PA. Just have them say they're 18 (or 50 it doesn't matter) their name is Barack Obama, and they don't have an ID to prove it.

The only thing I'm counting on is that my predictions are wrong 80% of the time. I don't predict Romney will win this. But like I said, that alone gives him an 80% chance. I predicted he'd win the last time just on first sight of him, at the same time I thought he'd be going against PIAPS, and we know that didn't happen.

1012 CO isn't up in the air. It's Romney. Even in the Denver area the businesspeople are making their stance known.

The lefties did stick the state's voters with three ballot initiatives, that we're going to have to strike down. But the marijuana initiative will probably backfire - it'll bring out the Ronulans, not the liberals, so that won't be a plus for Obama's side. (And even though it's lefty, it's also anti-Washington, so I plan to vote for it with my trollface on.) The other two are "campaign finance reform" and "civil service reform"; those two are political hack crap, not good for GotV.

Never saw that. I saw a truck that looked like it had an Obama sticker on it.

Top 5 boozers? Aussies, Brits, Canadians, Mexicans, Scandis.

FINNS!!! Booze prices are so high in Finland, they take ferries over to Estonia just to drink themselves senseless on the way at tax-free prices. Many just stay on the ship and sleep it off on the way back. The rest just stagger from bar to bar in Tallinn, and into shops where they can buy and bring back unlimited quantities of hooch to their dark, dour land.

The Fat Man in Jersey read the polls and believed them too. He was hedging his bets making nice with Obama.
The voting models are wrong. No one really knows what the turnout will be on Tuesday. Voter registration numbers are out there, and there was a really good Gallup poll out early last week about the swing in voter registration.
That had good numbers (well over 10,000 polled), but hey, let's ignore that and go all eyeore with what that idiot bastard scum sucking malcontent liar Chuck Todd says on NBC/MSNBC.

I was optimistic at first, largely as a result of having some Arab and Persian friends and acquaintances, and also seeing widespread communications technology as being a general harbinger of political moderation.

But ... I soon changed my position as it became quickly evident that while people like my friends generally wanted positive reform, they could (or would) not stand up to the violent jihadi types.

Although they tried, some of them, quite bravely.

Anyway, upshot: this is why I seriously oppose any covert attempts Obama may have been making to funnel arms to the Syrian "rebels'. Mitt Romney has, regrettably, called several times for the US to arm them.

I strongly disagree.

Apparently there was a widely dispersed original homeland somewhere in the Urals, a very long time ago. Lapps went to Finland first. Finns next. Estonians went to Estonia. etc, etc.

So Wikipedia tells me.

Finno-Ugric is kinda like Afro-Asiatic that way.

The Indo-European languages are easier to classify; everything except the even older Hittite-ish languages came from a central area where there was lots of room to race chariots. Probably Ukraine.

1141 I do think there is a decent chance the polls are wrong due to low response rates and likely voter screens.

I suspect that Democrats who will not vote or who plan to vote against Obama are squeamish to say so to people.

I think that probably is more true than not. Cuomo probably has judged that there's nothing good to come from being public and in the spotlight during this, so he's just going to lay low and out of it until a better time.

I think we do a lot of things that seem smart or fair, but end up having drawbacks...like women voting for a big State that can replace husbands.

I will say that Obama in 2008 is a tempting vote just to be part of history. Individual votes really don't count that much, so people often vote not based on their actual interests, but on what makes them feel good. See Mexico, where voters like to elect socialists, and then they vote with their feet for capitalism.

Instead Obama wasted a day for what is now seen as a photo-op. And FEMA is failing. So is Bloomberg. Christie did the right thing.

Let's be honest though, Obama winning is ultimately a better result than McCain winning.

If McCain wins, 2010 doesn't happen.

And while Obamacare doesn't happen, fucking Cap and Trade does.

And if McCain had been President over these last four years, the economy is still likely in the toilet and our debt is probably almost as high (like he wouldn't have been all over a trillion dollar stimulus, too).

Which means we'd be looking a Democratic wave coming our way and all would almost definitely be lost.

Very true. Christie has a very small window. He did some way good things leading up to the storm that most likely saved my house as well as a few other towns. He needs to step it up though, or get his fucking face on the air and tear obama a new one for fema walking around stepping on their dicks.

Could be he's just a day late. This morning, I was reading the rumours and disbelieving them. This evening, I was watching video and primary-sourced accounts.

Mind you, I'm waaay over here in Colorado, and Christie is actually at that state, and so should be seeing these accounts on his desk, and not waiting for the blogosphere to sift the fog.

But I'll give him this day, in case he's had other shit to deal with. Just this day. If he doesn't pound the unions tomorrow then he'll deserve the abuse and then some.

Let's be honest though, Obama winning is ultimately a better result than McCain winning.



If McCain wins, 2010 doesn't happen.



And while Obamacare doesn't happen, fucking Cap and Trade does.



And if McCain had been President over these last four years, the
economy is still likely in the toilet and our debt is probably almost as
high (like he wouldn't have been all over a trillion dollar stimulus,
too).



Which means we'd be looking a Democratic wave coming our way and all would almost definitely be lost.

You know, I kind of pondered this myself.

My problem with McCain is he seems to want to use US forces everywhere, and I'm not sure that's wise.

Romney wants a Reganesque foreign policy: speak powerfully, carry a mother-ass fuckin' big stick.

Of course. McCain likely would have been the national equivalent of a severe sore throat slowly turning into pneumonia ... maybe we'll get better ...

... Barky is the equivalent of the mumps ... for the entire nation: lots of swelling, pain, real danger, etc., clear trouble and no mistaking it.

We see, everyone sees, BO for what he really is ... some Las Vegas paper wrote it yesterday ... an incompetent amateur narcissist.


Fortunately, the polls are starting to show that the public sees this too ... we just need to get every citizen to vote ... and clamp down of fraud.

Perhaps a celebration on 07 November is needed ... logically, a couple of fish tacos, carnitas, onions, lots o' beans, followed by 8oz. of raw mushrooms and beer ... then a raid on Kos, DU, ... a real carpet bombing ...

Why would Obama negotiate and come up with a deal when he could just get his tax increases and defense spending cuts via sequestration? Plus the media will tell everyone it was the GOP's fault. You can't really blame Boehner for caving when his first experience of Obama reneging was the media telling everyone it was his fault.

I remember the mamogram thread, with women beating up guys for
complaining about the old finger up the dirt chute exam. You have a
point of course, but its still debasing and humiliating. I mean good
lord, we can scan the human body like slices of ham with technology and
the best thing doctors can come up with for prostate exam is a finger
and a rubber glove?


Its like they like it or something.

Great. So doctors need to use multi-million dollar machines to do what a finger and rubber glove can do, just because YOU find it debasing and humiliating.

Given what a pussy you are, it's doubtful you'll ever NEED a prostate exam.

Next thing, you'll be telling us how debasing and humiliating it is that your shit doesn't come out in little white puffs.

Yep, I'm surprised they're admitting it. This is a point of advantage to the Romney campaign.

I think (hope but also think) that Romney is better than average at managing and pacing operations. So I think the GOP GOTV effort will be better than usual.

I mean, it sucked with McCain, not least of which because people didn't want to vote for him.

if you are going to stick something up your bum, one finger sucks.it doesnt sufficiently stretch it out to not be uncomfortable. If you are going to go getting fingers put up your butt, tell the doctor to use three. It feels better for you and he can probably find out more with extra digits to wiggle.

the other hand and give you a reach around? Hell, I would probably tip
him a twenty for doing that.

I think the bigger problem is the fatness, not the body image issues.

It's a disgrace that, since Ancel Keyes horrific and dishonest work, and since The McGovern Report (he may have been a principled guy, but he was wrong, and this bullied-through iniative sickened and killed a lot of people, and weakened a nation's fitness), the health of the American people, and the West generally, has been so badly damaged.

I'm not saying be mean to fat girls. But the bigger problem is the horrific societal changes and often government bureaucracies that made them fatter, sicker, and less attractive than they should be.

1354 A relative of mine died, ceveral years ago, from, mainly, a tumor, larger than a softball, in his pelvic area. It was probably not his prostate, as the location was not quite right. Colon cancer seems the best guess.

He took about a year to go, mostly lying in bed, watching TV, cared for by his kids. I think he was not in pain. He was in his late 60s, but maybe 71 or 72

There are many better ways to die.

Bend over and take the finger test. Better yet, get a colonoscopy. Tell the physician to take ALL of anything he thinks needs to be sampled ... a return journey, earlier than 3 years, is ... just wrong ...

You know, for the purpose of detecting an aggressive cancer, like the one that carried off Frank Zappa?

And, what pray tell, would you suggest a doctor to do when faced with diagnosing hemorrhoids, rectal cancer (cf Farah Fawcett) or other "hind end ailments"?

As for "as much as possible", that's the problem, the "possible". If it's not possible to detect hardening of the prostate w/o digital examination, then...what's your point? You seem to think that machines can detect and diagnose everything, which is a fantasy.

1373 Sam I don't know if you have daughters, but body image insecurities are very real, and can damage women from their teen years or before throughout their adult life.

They get the impression from people (like you I' m sure) that fat equals bad, and thus they equate their self- worth with their weight. And if they are not a size 6, they feel a sense of worthlessness.

I am super passionate about battling childhood obesity, and yet, when the schools try to put healthy foods into place and get rid of soda and candy, they are called nanny schools. Well, how do you propose society battle this epidemic, for the health of our children? Obviously it starts at home, but schools can do their part as well.

In the meantime, it is cyclical. Often, eating is a release for stress. Girls get stressed about people making fun of them, so they eat. They gain weight. More people comment on their weight, they start to despair, feel worthless, then they don't care about how they look, because again, they have such little self esteem. They don't go to the gym because they are afraid people will make fun of them, and they are right in many cases, so they don't work off their weight.....do you see how it is a snowball effect? The young female psyche is so fragile...it is way too simplistic to say, "Well, the weight is a bigger issue here"

Well I'm here to say, if we stop vilifying women for their weights, perhaps this vicious cycle of self-loathing won't pick up steam, and it will be easier for women to achieve their own personal level of fitness.

McCain had been leading in every poll up until Lehman crashed, and Bush kind of kneecapped him by doing that. Hell, he could have just had Bernake print a bunch of money and buy all those troubled companies' commercial paper. No different than what he is doing with the government today.

But I am guessing that Bush probably didn't feel to bad for kneecapping McCain for all the shit that McCain fucked him over for during his administration.

1377 >>>Sam I don't know if you have daughters, but body image insecurities are very real, and can damage women from their teen years or before throughout their adult life.

Yes, I know this. I have some sympathy for the argument.

I'm saying the bigger problem (not the only problem) is that obesity rates have sky-rocketed since the inaccurate lipid hypothesis as propagandized and promoted by the government following the McGovern report.

I'm sure most fat women would rather be lean and healthy than just feel better about being fat. Of course, since that's very hard to change in the light of being raised with wrong dietary information in a culture that pushes the wrong foods on people, I also hope they feel comfortable and good about themselves generally.

I've liked and loved fat women. Loved as in very much.

But not exclusively or anything.

I'm not saying fat women are "bad", I'm saying most fat people these days are as a result of some very bad "science" and government policies in years past.

And it's an outrage.

From what I understand, every man would eventually get prostate cancer,
if he lived long enough. I'm not sure how exactly doctors can know that
aside from some bizarre experiment in reality manipulation but that's
the story. To put it mildly, I don't want to live to be an old man
anyway.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor

*******************

There's yer problem, right there in that last sentence.

Rest assured that if you don't get regular medical exams, including procedures that you might find uncomfortable, you will likely not live long enough to be an old man.

You remind me of an old episode on the Simpsons:

Lisa becomes friends with a black sax player named "Bleeding Gums Murphy".

She asks him: "Say, how did you get that nickname?"

Bleeding Gums: "Well, it's like this. You ever been to the dentist"?

Lisa: "Sure".

Bleeding Gums: "Not me!"

************

p.s. Doctors know that most (not "every") men get prostate cancer if they live long enough through autopsies, not "bizarre experiments", etc.

Posted by: Tickled Pink at November 04, 2012 02:40 AM (LiCO6)


Well ... if you are battling childhood obesity then you are telling kids how terrible it is to be fat. And schools have no business screwing around in this. Obesity is NOT an epidemic. You and your kids' weights not only start at home but end at home, too. Your desire to "help the children" only helps to build an intrusive government state that thinks it has the right to tell everyone what to do, what to eat, what to think and what to like. It's none of the government's business and other than your own kids, none of your business.

As to your worries that people shouldn't think one way or another about body images, you can't dictate what people find attractive and you should not even try to. What the hell?

Someone in show business is being critiqued on her physical appearance and attractiveness. Well, what do you think much of show business is about? Give me a break.

It's mostly changes in the food supply and especially in foods that are promoted by government and the culture. I'm saying it's LESS their fault than your hypothesis would assign responsibility.

1388 As far as "body image" goes though, I certainly have the right to choose for myself what I find attractive, including women with healthy body compositions.

Not only is this my right as such, it's also better for any potential children I might have, as it gives them a more-likely-to-be-healthy starting point. That's why men (and women) find indicators of health attractive.

Whether God or evolution (or both) set it up that way, it's a fact.

Do I think it's admirable to love someone despite them having lesser fitness? Sure. But it's also natural to be more attracted to people with higher fitness.

So since women find it very important emotionally to be found attractive, and so attractive a good mate, love, and possible father of their children, it's in their best interest to improve their body composition if they're able to do so.

Men too, obviously.

1399 Okay Primordial.....

A) We can sit around and hope that people raise their kids in a healthy way so that they are not obese. But, that's not working so well, is it? The childhood obesity rate goes up and up each year. And these obese kids become obese adults, which would lead to our tax dollars paying for their medical care and/or our own insurance premiums skyrocketing.

Like I said, sure ideally, it is something that should be taken care of at home, but it's not happening, so we can either pay the price down the road, or we can try to fix it. Plus, you and I are paying the tax dollars to subsidize these kids' school meals, so yeah, I think it is okay for us to have a say in what they get fed and what kinds of foods are in the vending machines.

As for Sam, I totally get your argument, and I don't disagree. But, I don't think our two opinions necessarily have to be mutually exclusive.

As a woman, I have a very extensive history and experience, both myself and with other people in my life. If you look into it, there is a lot of research that supports my argument that the psychological aspect is a very real piece of the obesity/weight loss puzzle. I am not saying it is that way for all women, but I think it is much more common than you give it credit for. And that cycle of self-loathing that I described is very accurate as well.

Is it a predisposed psychological issue that leads to obesity and thus prevents weight loss, or is the reaction of people to weight the catalyst for those deep-seeded emotional issues?

I guess my point was that calling people names, ie blimp, doesn't do anyone any good. You cannot shame people into losing weight. You will only make them feel worse about themselves, driving them to eat more and work out less.

I'm all for curtailing the civil liberties of a Typhus carrier etc.via quarantine in order to contain the spread in public health *emergencies*.

No not just any old thing that involves, the public or health.

Using the "epidemic" language is what tools like Bloomberg and Moochelle rely on to justify their, outrageous, batshit-insane and ultimately unhelpful campaigns against individual liberty.

1405 >>>NY Daily News just endorsed Romney. Shocking, but in a go way.

Is it? I thought they were the Republican newspaper in NY.

Now I did read a couple days ago that 24 national newspapers and counting switches their endorsements from Obama to Romney, and that is significant. It's actually kind of huge.

But I would have been surprised if NY Post didn't endorse Romney.

Sorry to rain on your parade. Just saying. Maybe the info about the other newspapers switching to Romney will make up for it.

Actually, yeah you can.

My college roommate told me a story of what caused him to lose weight. It was when he tried to hike a mountain, and he was wheezing the whole way up and down, and he was passed in both directions by this elderly guy who had to be at least twice his age. That embarrassed him so much that he got into shape.

1415 A) We can sit around and hope that people raise their kids in a healthy way so that they are not obese. But, that's not working so well, is it? The childhood obesity rate goes up and up each year. And these obese kids become obese adults, which would lead to our tax dollars paying for their medical care and/or our own insurance premiums skyrocketing.

This is all kinds of wrong, wrapped in silly, topped with fascist. You're not paying for anyone else's health care other than the un-Constitutional and insane loopholes that have been pushed through by people like you (and you seem to support a government that wants to make us all pay for everyone's health care). Other people's obesity is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. End of story. Worry about yourself and your own kids.

I pay for my own health insurance and always have. You don't pay jack shit for me, nor for anyone I know. Stop with the "we" shit. Concentrate on your own premiums and on the asinine people who want to give away health insurance to everyone, treat all the illegals who don't even have a right to be here, and like to force me to buy insurance that covers women's procedures.

I guess my point was that calling people names, ie blimp, doesn't do anyone any good. You cannot shame people into losing weight. You will only make them feel worse about themselves, driving them to eat more and work out less.

Posted by: Tickled Pink at November 04, 2012 03:07 AM (LiCO6)


That's ridiculous and pathetic. People don't call others "blimp" because they're trying to get them to lose weight. They are making a comment on their appearance. It might not be nice, but that's life. If those people then use that as an excuse to get fatter, then that's their problem. You CANNOT blame your personality issues on what others think of you. You are who you are because of you.

I am offended by people who think it is their business to tell everyone else how to live and what to do and think and I'm even more ticked when they use the coercion of govenrment to force their pathetic ideas on everyone.

1, it's Rasmussen, but 2, due to lots of issues (LV screens, cell phones, weekend, Sandy, etc.), I don't have confidence in the actual absolute percentages of these polls.

But trends. Trends I buy.

Also, this trend just so happens to be the trend I was sure would happen.

However, if Romney's share of the vote coupled with voter enthusiasm delta was overestimated, then he still wins.

We'll see.

Posted by: Samwise Gamgee the 3rd at November 04, 2012 03:18 AM (SKX2R)

1423 It's really simple with the polls. If they are right, and turnout is GREATER (yes, greater, because that's what they are saying) for Dems than it was in 2008, Obama will win. Less than what he won by in 2008, mind you, but a win.

But, if they are wrong, and they don't ahve to be that wrong, just a little wrong, and turnout is somewhere around D+3, we win.

If they are very wrong, and turnout is closer to even, and there are a lot of reasons to think it will be, we win in a landslide.

That's really it and that's all there ever was and will be when it comes to these polls. If you believe, truly, that Ohio is a D+9 state, then I have some nice beachfront property to sell you in Columbus.

That's silly. People buy and eat what they like. Maybe you ought to think about govenment that cuts phys ed, schools that get rid of sports so they don't get sued, people keeping their kids from roaming too far because they of scare-mongering on top of shitty law enforcement and having parents being blamed for every little cut and bruise that a kid gets (and possibly even accused of child abuse at the drop of a hat). There was an article in a British paper not too long ago about the change in area that a child roams freely over today. It used to be that kids went miles on their own. Nowadays, helicopter parents keep them tied in the front yard ... and then wonder why they might get fat.

No one takes government reccomendations of diet seriously, so just stop it. It's bad enough that the government is going to force our diets through ObamaCare in the near future. You don't have to make up shit about the past.

1442 There are many, many things that conspire to make someone obese -- I had a friend in High School that would snarf down his own lunch and finish whatever anyone else didn't eat as well -- and never gained a pound.....which goes to prove that it's not entirely what you eat. He also hung out in the same group I did, so it wasn't a particularly different level of exercise.



On the flip side, it is almost certain that government "food pyramids" and "balanced meal" programs have been motivated more by politics and self-confirming bias (a la "global warming") than actual science -- that stuff will hasten you down the road to ruin.



Ubiquitous HFCS and polyunsaturated fats aren't particularly good for you, either -- but are subsidized through government programs. Sodas of all sorts are hugely fattening.



Over-protective "helicopter moms" and widespread sloth in front of video screens are crowding out good, old-fashioned outdoor exercise, and that's a big contributor.



And, last but not necessarily least, there are -- as noted above -- certain aspects that seem to come from reactions to the microbiome or even infectious agents.



Unfortunately, the old paradigm was that being fat was due to "lack of willpower" -- and with a lot of these other factors, fat people with ample willpower and drive were being beaten up about "their failure."

1445 On gubmints shaping the perceptions of a people --

I read a great article in Weekly Standard today about the alarming decline in the S. Korean birthrate. Lots of facts and figures, including the fact that the US gubmint played a large role in it happening.

Korea is basically so far below the replacement rate that their entire society may disappear within 100 years. In the 1950s, about 1.5% of women were childless throughout their lives; today, that number is around 25%. Add in the number of children each woman is having now vs. then (1.2 vs 4. and the problem becomes obvious. Much of this change in attitude is due to gubmint policies and propaganda, exactly the kind of thing you are advocating Tickled Pink. And the South Korean gubmint is finding out that reversing their meddling is very difficult to do.

Fortunately, it turns out the capacity to be *devasted* by mean comments, is something that usually tends to clear up over time, much like acne.

Seriously, that put down was kind of funny.

But OK, not so funny if you're a young woman worried about your social status and mating attractiveness to the boys you like.

So I'd tell her I love her and what they said was silly. That she's a great person and people make fun of each other sometimes. That it's understandable that it hurts, but really, it isn't that big of a deal and once the other person grows up, they'll probably stop being such an idiot.

My grandmother is going on 100 and still enjoys eating well and drinking alcohol. Fixation on body fat is a great way to waste whatever time one is granted.

1464 Tickled, I'm not saying being mocked as a kid can't be traumatic. It often is.

But it's an unavoidable part of life, so I'd try to encourage my kid to develop their resilience, sense of humor, sense of perspective, and focus on positive aspects of themselves.

But no, I wouldn't expect kids to stop insulting each other. Sorry, would be nice, but the real world includes rape, torture, war, thievery, socialism, people having to ball their eyes out in pretend devastation at North Korean dear leader's death, heartache, and let's not forget death.

Death.

She'll have to deal with that one day.

So I'd love her, but I'd encourage her to get stronger to deal with the world as it is, rather than why do teenagers say some bad words.

And by the way, teasing and making fun of are not the same as bullying and being cruel.

1470 I am an independent supporting Romney.

I read Samwise Gangee's comments about RCP averages for swing states leaning toward Obama.

I went to the RCP website and looked at the state polls. Here is the issue. There are a lot of unknown outfits polling in these states. No one knows how good these polls are. One can't blindly average good polls and bad polls. Averages are ok if you have a large sample (I know something about statistics). When you have 5 or 6 polls in a state with unreliable polls mixed in, your averages can be severely biased by one or two outliers. Medians are better in these cases.

Or

One can focus on the reliable pollsters with a history of accuracy. In national polls, you want to rely on Gallup, Pew, ABC/Washington Post and Rasmussen.

In state polls, you want to rely on Survey USA, Rasmussen, Mason-Dixon, and some local newspaper polls. The poll by Des Moines Register is quite reliable. Star Tribune poll is reliable. Because, they have been doing this for a long time and know the lay of the land.

Ok, with that in mind, I reviewed the polls in each state keeping only those that are reliable (based on my list above) and then chucking the rest. If you take the median of the remaining polls (again to minimize the effect of the outliers) here is what you find:

Sure Romney: Virginia, Florida, North Carolina
Sure Obama: Minnesota
Lean Obama: Nevada, Iowa, Pennsylvania

Too close to call: Ohio, Colorado, Wisconsin, and New Hampshire.

In every one of these states except Minnesota, Obama is under 50.

This looks encouraging for Romney.

To sum it up, I have no idea what Samwise is talking about. It looks like he is relying on a simple average of all kinds of polls to provide a misleading picture. By the by, this is what Nate Silver is also doing. Instead, he should be computing the mean or median of the more reliable polls rather than taking an average of all polls. Then he can run his Monte Carlo simulations based on the more reliable polls. If he does that, I bet his probabilities would be close to 50%, a coin toss. Then, you have to rely on qualitative factors to make a judgment.

I did this exercise to make sure that I am not engaging in wishful thinking. I am now convinced that Romney has a slight edge mainly due to the fact that Obama is under 50 in pretty much every state.

Yes. True.

But it was Rasmussen's reversal of trend, in exactly the direction I thought it would go because of Sandy, that made me revise my prediction.

But hopefully it's just an outlier.

I predicted Obama would open up a 1 or 2 point gap in the Rasmussen Daily Tracking poll over the next two days as last week's nightly polls fall off.

So we'll see.

You might be more closer in time to it than I am.

Give it a decade or two and other way more serious shit can happen to make you marvel at the *genuine* anguish that your teenage self felt over what ( in hindsight ) turn out to be trivial issues.

(So says a wizened old lady of 40.)

As far as physical appearance mocks go, yeah sure, some of them still niggle but that's about it.

There are some "critiques" that turned out to be entirely baseless, some that were prophetic.

The negatives, appearance wise, that have followed me into adulthood that really bothered me, I have either done something about when I could, or based on the evidence of my lack of effort lead me to believe that I just do't give that much of a shit, all things considered.

He didn't say much to me about my troubles, but if he saw the kids who made fun of or hurt me or my sister, and he made sure he saw them, he really laid into them.

When I was in 7th grade, a couple of Junior guys were playing field hockey with us in PE and one of them checked me and laid me out hard. I blacked out. I was so proud of it, that I told my parents about it. I've never seen him so mad. He saw the guy working Bingo one time (Catholic school) and he about laid hands on him right there. The guy was shell shocked and terrified.

1481 Independent, you make good points. I wouldn't dismiss them.

In particular, when you say this:

"Obama is under 50 in pretty much every state."

A week ago I was optimistic about a Romney win. But then Sandy and Christie happened (especially the former) PLUS Romney did not do what I said he should do (as did Bill Kristol) and bring up Benghazi more forcefully, just relying on his momentum on the economy.

But then the rally effect with Sandy. And that shifted momentum back to Obama.

So, yes, I don't doubt your point about where Obama is in those numbers, but I fear that Sandy is an unusual situation with very unusual timing -- a point Charles Krauthammer was making -- and is lucky as hell for Obama politically.

So because of that last-minute momentum shift, I don't think you can count on the late-breakers going for Romney as they would have if Sandy didn't happen.

So it's all about what Romney banked pre-Sandy.

Sarcasm aside, it's too late for Romney to bring up Benghazi in a serious sustained way, as Krauthammer pointed out. It would be perceived as desperate, not as leadership at this late stage.

Romney made a strategic decision to avoid it. People are aware of this.

To a degree it helps him with centrists who don't like confrontation among political leaders.

That was pretty funny, actually. And all of Fixx's supporters tried to play it off by saying, "He would have died years earlier if he hadn't jogged." - i.e. Fixx had saved or created a few extra years

Of course, he spent something like 3 years on the road jogging (all added up).

I love exercise and sports, but I have always hated jogging. I'm more into sprint/power sports - intermittent bursts of energy. Fixx was okay but the defenses they tried to come up with for him after that were beyond lame.

The morons seem a little down about the election, so here's an encouraging thought. Or two.... OK, here's a bunch :

1) "Global Warming." Think about it. Why do people give any credence to the Global Warming? Some so-called professionals that people tend to inherently believe say some stuff, and people believe it even when it doesn't make any sense and conflicts with their own observable reality. The "scientists" in question are really political operatives and quacks, but few seem to notice.

In this election, the pollsters are the "scientists". Most of these polls are done for media, and therefore the profit motive for the pollsters lie not in obtaining accuracy, but in feeding their commie customers the results they need for their propaganda campaign. There are things about these polls that make no sense whatsoever. There are a fewworth paying SOME attention to, but nobody doing these cheap-o free pollsreally knows what the hell is going on.

2) So, what's real? I have seen exactly one Obama/Biden yard sign, anywhere; I'm not sure if I've ever seen a 2012 bumper sticker (although I've seen a couple of '08 ones. This is a reddish-purple pocket within a deep blue state. It's not hard to find a R/R yard sign, and I've seen a few bumper stickers for them. What do the Dems have? "Hope and Change?" Everybody knows that was a scam by now. "Making History with the First Black President?" Been there, done that (and it doesn't feel as great, in hindsight.) Saving women's lady-parts? Really? There's just NO WAY that the Obama voters turn out in droves. A lot of them are going to be "washing their hair" on election night.

3) On the Republican side, I don't hear you guys talking about "holding your nose" (which is how we lost last time)this time. What I DO hear is people talking about crawling across broken glass, if need be. I also see enormous crowds greeting Romney in swing states, whilethe Presidenthad to downsize his arena for his acceptance speech, many Dems took a pass on it, and the crowds for Obama(again, that's for the PRESIDENT - of the UNITED STATES) are down to a few thousand at a time.

4) When I see Romney speak lately, I see a man who isgrateful to his supporters, andmentally preparing himself for the White House. When I see Obama speak lately, I see an impetuous, bitter, defeatedchild with nothing new to say. Both these guys have access to the REAL polls.

There's more, but that's long enough. BUCK UP, PEOPLE!!!

"shame is a hugely powerful tool, it is one of the things that pc undercuts - intentionally."
I couldn't agree with you more. When we started removing "shame" from society is when we got in trouble. Example: it used to be that if a teen got in trouble, was arrested, his name was published in Police Notes. Parents, therefore, felt shamed, not just the kid. We have removed that. Pisses me off. No one is responsible for actions anymore. PCers offers excuses.

Sandy, like Benghazi, does not fit the MSM narrative so it will not get enough play in time to make a difference other than locally and there is no chance NY or NJ will be anything but BLUE. The only possible but not very plausible effect would be stifling turnout in Philadelphia enough to let PA slip into the red column, but if Barone is to believed that is likely to happen anyway, so the point may be moot even there.

To be frank, in part because I got so badly burned by believing in AJ Strata's 2006 optimistic analysis that I put less stock in amateur blogger polling analysts as a rule.

Which isn't a slight on DaveInFL's work, since I'm not familiar with it.

But it would take me a while to know whether I can trust his work, probably more than one election. I'm a pretty big fan of Rasmussen and Gallup, if not their absolute numbers, then they're mapping of trendlines.

Posted by: Samwise Gamgee the 3rd at November 04, 2012 04:22 AM (SKX2R)

1502 Samwise,

Couple of points:

In the four states I mentioned too close to call, they are tied in wisconsin, Romney is slightly ahead in New Hampshire and Colorado and Obama is slightly ahead in Ohio based on my analysis. Even if you are right and the undecideds split 50/50 which by the by occured only in 2000 when there wasn't an incumbent running, Romney is still very much in the game. If Gallup and Pew are right that Republican party identification currently is higher than the Democratic party identification, which neither Gallup nor Pew used in their polls, this also augurs well for Romney. Because, polls are still assuming a +2 or + 3 turnout advantage for Democrats. A + 1 Rep turnout advantage would be huge. Furthermore, independents are favoring Romney by at least 5 points. I am being conservative in my estimate here. I wouldn't be as pessimistic as you are given these numbers.

The second point is that Rasmussen's is a three day tracking poll which means it aleeady has Wed, Thu, and Friday in it and presumably based on your analysis the best three days for Obama post Sandy.

Here's a crude, simple rule-of-thumb I came up with today that might help folks understand a thing or two:

PV = 0.8*(R-D) + 0.3*dI

Where PV is the % difference in popular vote, R is the % Republican turnout, D is the % Democrat turnout, and dI is the % difference between the Republican Independent vote and the Democrat Independent vote. It's based on the assumption that 90% of the R votes Romney, and a like percentage of Dems vote Obama.

For example, if the turnout is 36% Republican, and 34% Democrat, and the Independents split 55/45 for Romney,
PV = 0.8*(36-34) + 0.3*(55-45) = 0.8*2 + 0.3*10 = 1.6+3 = +4.6
which means Romney wins by 4.6%.

The key thing here, is that it shows the relative importance of turnout vs. support from Independents, in a quantitative way. For example, it shows that a 10-point lead with Independents can be undone by trailing about 3.8% in turnout.

Anyway, if you have your own ideas about what turnout will be, and the split of Independents, this is a rough way to turn those guesses into a guess about the popular vote. Personally, I don't think my example is too off-the-wall, vs. what we'll see Tuesday (but I could be wrong, of course).

[Tech note: the .3 comes from an assumption that I's are about 30% of the voters. The .8 is because (.9*R+.1*D) - (.1*R+.9*D) = .8*(R-D).]

There was no momentum back to Obama. What was there to momentum about? The economy? Certainly not the storm. Tell that to Stanton Island. Jobs? Foreign policy? No, there is nothing there to give Obama an advantage.

And Krauthammer was wrong. Benghazi is not something Romney should have spoken about. Do you not remember the second debate? The MSM was ready for Romney to say something. It was clear then that they had a script and they were going to hammer Romney no matter what he said about Benghazi. Reporters were even saying point blank that they weren't talking about Benghazi because Romney hadn't brought it up. See what's going on there.

Romney's got this.

1528 "Obama is under 50 in pretty much every state."

A week ago I was optimistic about a Romney win. But then Sandy and Christie happened (especially the former) PLUS Romney did not do what I said he should do (as did Bill Kristol) and bring up Benghazi more forcefully, just relying on his momentum on the economy.

But then the rally effect with Sandy. And that shifted momentum back to Obama.

So, yes, I don't doubt your point about where Obama is in those numbers, but I fear that Sandy is an unusual situation with very unusual timing -- a point Charles Krauthammer was making -- and is lucky as hell for Obama politically.

So because of that last-minute momentum shift, I don't think you can count on the late-breakers going for Romney as they would have if Sandy didn't happen.

So it's all about what Romney banked pre-Sandy.

No, it's not so much that. I'm definitely not trying to curry favor.

It's that I actually think, once again, this blog's commenters trend overoptimistic -- just like the last 3 elections that I've seen (where I was also overoptimistic, but less so than the average in the last 2).

I'll be back on Nov. 6th and 7th and you can rub my nose in it for how wrong I am. Fair enough?

Or ... you can attack me emotionally despite me being closer to the truth.

However it works out.

But widespread attack it will be. You sure as hell won't be doing Mea Culpas -- I don't give you that much credit!

Aside from the specifics, here, Kristol and Krauthammer are almost always wrong about almost everything. They're idiots. Krauthammer was still claiming that the Indonesian Retard was "intelligent" up until the beginning of this year. Kraut is great once he gets on the right side of an issue, but he almost always gets there 18 months to 3 years too late. he's basically worthless, except for some after-action commentary.

Were that to happen, then Samwise would get his heart's desire.

Namely, to be legitimized by "authority" in his self chosen Cassandra role. (If I could, I would have put one of those pointy French hats over the O in role.)

I understand the impulse not to get one's hopes up, especially when the stakes are so high.

He'll, I'm only cautiously optimistic myself!

But this is starting to read to me as an almost desperate attempt to inoculate oneself against what could be a devastating outcome.

Believe me, Samwise.

If things go bad on Tuesday, being able to say, "I told you so! or I saw this coming!" is going to comfort you not at all.

I think that you really understand and feel how big the stakes are in this election.

At this point, you are just mindlessly pacing back and forth in the waiting room, trying to work off your nervous tension.

I get that.

But the rest of the family are here too, with ragged nerves...

"1524Optimizer, I think Dems won't get as high of a percentage voting for their candidate as will Reps. But that the Inds may have swung back to Obama."


Like I said, it's a crude formula. Suppose Obama onlygets 85% of the Dems. We'd have
(0.9*R+0.15*D) - (0.1*R+0.85*D) + 0.3*dI = 0.8*R - 0.6D + 0.3*dI

Going with my sameexample, if the turnout is 36% Republican, and 34% Democrat, and the Independents split 55/45 for Romney,

PV = 0.8*36 - 0.6*34 + 0.3*(55-45)
=28.8 - 20.4+ 0.3*10
= 8.4+3
= +11.4
which means Romney wins by 11.4% (instead of +4.6%).

Wow, if Obama doesn't get the same party loyalty as Romney, he's in a hell of a lot of trouble! I guess I should have looked more seriously at that - my wife's a registered Dem, and there's no way she's going for Obama (I actuallyhave no idea which way she may have gone last time).

1557 Here's a starting point for your efforts, MrX, imbecile:
http://bit.ly/TVswMG
http://bit.ly/TVsu7H

Question for the President:

Why did Libyan rebels get air support, and American citizens not get air support?

Question for Secretary of Defense Panetta:

US casualties during the entire air operation in Libya and against their organized national military forces were precisely zero.

Are you saying the risk to manned American air assets was just too high to fly them to Benghazi in defense of the Ambassador, the consulate, and the CIA annex with Americans inside?

Follow-up question for Secretary Panetta:

Is it your contention that it would have been irresponsible for America's air assets to take a risk to defend our Ambassador and citizens, yet the risk they took during thousands of missions to assist the Libyan rebels' military operations was justified?

Follow-up to the follow-up:

During the Libyan operation when we sent our air assets to strike Libyan targets, did we generally have a drone overhead providing real-time video, personnel on the ground lasing the target, and real-time video feed from buildings near the target itself?

Follow-up to the follow-up to the follow-up:

If so, what additional intelligence did we have in those cases that was greater than the intelligence we had on 9/11, 2012? Why were those air missions undertaken, but not a mission in defense of our own personnel in Benghazi?

---

Let's see how these comments are inline with those by "gumby", whomever that is.

Etc. The burden of proof is on you.

And you're an imbecile.

To demonstrate just how much of an imbecile you are, consider this:

Do you, or anyone who has a functioning brain if that doesn't apply to you, think that comments slagging Obama with incisive questions like that on his weakest points, days ago on some other blog, help the President's campaign? Or at least are more than offset by my comments here first predicting a narrow Romney win, and now predicting a narrow Obama win (in response to the latest Rasmussen tracking poll), and in both cases, urging GOTV efforts?

HOW important do you think Ace of Spades commenters are to the Obama election campaign?

Are you so incredibly delusional that you think the Obama campaign is seeding people throughout the Internet to ask damning questions of Obama so that they can then go on GOP blogs and point out how close the election is and how important turnout and GOTV efforts are?

Oh, crap! I subtracted wrong. Trying again:

(0.9*R+0.15*D) - (0.1*R+0.85*D) + 0.3*dI = 0.8*R - 0.7D + 0.3*dI

Going with my same example, if the turnout is 36% Republican, and 34% Democrat, and the Independents split 55/45 for Romney,

PV = 0.8*36 - 0.7*34 + 0.3*(55-45)
=28.8 - 23.8 + 0.3*10
= +5.0+3
= +8.0
which means Romney wins by 8.0% (instead of +4.6%).

Even if the advantage with Independents magically went away, Romney's still up by 5, if my turnout assumption is OK.

I don't know. Everyone has his own way of coping. I'm holding off most of my thoughts until polls are closed. I happen to think that Romney should win going away, just based on the idea that America doesn't like foreign retards and what happened in 2010 shows where the electorate is. It shouldn't matter what Romney did or didn't do in the campaign. All of that is totally beside the point. This election is nothing but Barky vs. America. Period.

My fear is more about the leftists rigging votes and cheating their way through - which I consider a distinct possibility. I don't trus these fuckers one little bit and I have zero faith left in our institutions. The leftists do think they can get away with anything, at this point, and no one has bothered to disabuse them of that notion. Whenever I read this bullshit about the voting machines "needing to be recalibrated" I blow a gasket because I know exactly what they're talking about. It's offensively ridiculous.

1579 O Jesus H Christ. This is reminding me of 2004 when the MFM bombarded us
with polls and propaganda in the final days in an attempt to suppress
our votes, culminating in "leaked" exit polls on election day. As the
polls closed on the east coast Intrade (then called Tradesports) had
Kerry up by 60!!! OMG Eleventy!!1111!!11!1!!!!!



All of the pollsters, from Gallup to Marist, agree on one thing: if
Obama doesn't match his 2008 turnout advantage he is fucked. You
remember 2008, don't you? That was when we were debating whether to hold
our noses and vote for McShithead or stay home and Send A Message. If
we can't improve on that we deserve to lose.



Ignore the MFM noise machine and just vote. We'll know who won soon enough.

1582 Hi Polli!

*waves*

I had two of you on my twitter feed that I had to unfollow a couple of months ago because it was just too much for me to keep up on.

Did you think it was mean or rude or something when I did that?

'Cause, I'm thinking about unfollowing another Moron who seems to be retweeting pretty much everyone that I am following already at a pretty rapid rate and...

I don't know how people follow me in the first place but how would you know if someone unfollowed you?

I hear about this.

Did you get a special tweet that says "Deety is a big jerk, who finds you unworthy?"

Because, that is not at all what I would want to convey.

Not to a fellow Moron!

Just redundant.

Nothing at all personal.

I agree!

Okay?

1590 My fear is more about the leftists rigging votes and cheating their way through - which I consider a distinct possibility.

I'm not sure Obama has all of the traditional Dem fraud apparatus at his disposal, since it operates on a pretty local level...and a lot of the people who would normally operate it aren't very happy with him.

Based on how local Dems in Palm Beach (about as blue as NYC) are distancing themselves from him, the number of people willing to take a bullet for a loser and risk prison has got be be lower than normal, and the number who might be willing to blow a whistle higher.

He attempted to short circuit the Democrat party at all levels with this OFA shit...and pretty much failed to do it so far. Given another 4 years...Obama might be able to complete the takeover.

1597 Glad I missed all of this.

Someone made a comment about "Independents swinging back to Obama"

No, it doesn't work that way. Independents are non-partisan, they aren't schizophrenic. Once they make up their minds, they vote that way. You have to win them back next cycle.

The reason everyone is nervous is that they want to see big gaudy polling numbers, but you were never going to see those. This election is based on turnout, just like 2008. In 2008 we didn't turn out and we lost big. This year, all indications are that we will turn out, possibly in record numbers. All indications are that Dems won't watch their 2008 turnout high water mark.

But until Tuesday, we won't know. The polls can't tell us that.

The initial reports I saw were stories from New Jersey (which had surprised me a little b/c of Christie), but the ones I saw really seemed like rumors. (There may have been more substantial ones that I missed.) And the unions denied them. But this Daily Caller piece nails the Long Island electricians union.

1625 Dave in Fla,

I had read this encouraging post from Jay Cost about the Republicans chances in PA with a certain mix of turnout assumptions based on Philadelphia and the test of the state counties....

http://twitlonger.com/show/jsavqc

It inspired me to put together this vote-calculator based on his assumptions...

http://checkboxbingo.com/phillyco/

The top number is the total state vote. Philadelphia Counties share is on the left. Other counties on right. Under each is the share of republican/democrat votes. Use the buttons to move the percentage shares around. Last line totals the party votes from each county grouping. Sorry for lack of labeling. Ran out of time.

And right there we see the problem with relying on polls to drive your news coverage. Actual percentage of Ohio early votes on Nov 1st was 17.5%.

The last third is kind of weak.

Least favorite of the three craig bond films.

Very very disappointed.

Its not that its a bad film, it just lacks that whole james bond feel and mostly because of the last third.

I dont get all the praise for this thing. Completely forgettable.

I am sure the left wing media loved it because of the gay inuendo heavy main villian's villian on bond psuedo sex scene but really...meh overall.

ABC actually has Romney up over the last poll it conducted.

This also accords with the anecdotal evidence showing huge enthusiasm for Romney.

1660 I'm torn by whether the bad reporting is partisanship or laziness, and I suspect both.

Reporters breathlessly report "33% of voters already voted, and supported Obama by 2 to 1!!" when the actual number is easily accessible.

Tapper tweets out attendance at an Obama rally was 20,000, when it is easy to check that the capacity of the room he was in is 9,800, and pictures show it wasn't full. When called on it, he says "the Director of the event gave the number, check with him". No Jake, you are the reporter, YOU check with him.

All weekend we are getting "Romney insiders are nervous", when what the people actually said was "we are cautiously optimistic, if we get the turnout we are hoping for, we should win".

Pathetic.

Meanwhile, Romney is filling venues with 30,000 people, and not a single reporter can be bothered to say, "You know, the voters seem to be pretty enthusiastic about this Romney guy".

...and remember the last "dead heat" narrative supported by the media polling: Scott Walker recall.

Given the current lib media climate, a "dead heat" is right where we want to be right before election day.

1663 Dave in Fla,

Since you're here this morning....

All hail your sublime Mathiness, brother.

Your blog has been a master class in polling, stats, and how they figure in the political landscape.

Not kissing your ass, I really appreciate your approach and clear concise methodology.

Here's hoping that after the election, if your numbers are as sound as they look- you break out to a much larger audience.

Thanks for all your efforts this election.

1664 Anecdotal W PA economic evidence: More empty storefronts in the suburbs than I have ever seen. At least one homeless man pushing a shopping cart in my mom's middle-upper middle class area. NEVER seen anything like it in this area. I remember the early 80s, and it was horrible (especially to the mill towns around here that died and never came back), but it didn't seem to affect my family's neighborhood like this Obama economy does. Also seeing cheapo cardboard ads for national chains like Midas... My city 'hood seems rundown. It is a middle- to upper class area too - Things are bad here in W PA. It all looks very shabby, like a depression.

1674 Dave in Fla -- Agreed that "reporters" are a bunch of lazy fucks, but they have been programmed from J-school onward to be that way. Serving the Narrative is far more important than expending effort to dig up the Truth.

If this were not so, Choom Boy would be sleeping in a cardboard box somewhere, not livin' phat off the public trough.

So tamping down stories that make Romney look good is simple for them. And if they let something slip through, their editors will surely spike it.

Some smaller outlets occasionally make mistakes, though. Witness one of today's Drudge stories, which reports that a polling place in Houston was "taken over" by NAACP thugs, who engaged in illegal campaigning (for the Traitor-in-Chief, natch) on-site. Ditto for a story Breitbart is playing, in which union thugs were arrested for stealing Romney yard signs.

This is the shit that bugs me. I've felt for months that the Obama co-conspirators would use any means necessary to win -- not run a polite, follow-the-rules campaign as Poppin' Fresh believes -- and they are. But no one talks about that.

And yes, my brain, encased in its tinfoil hat, expects rioting and worse on Tuesday night. These "people" will not lose gracefully.

_______________________I agree, though think they used the term "depression" all the time (or at least more often) until the last one. Then they just used "recession." If the govt were propping up so many people, it would be like the 30s. I have no doubt. We would have children with bloated bellies.

I'm feeling pretty confident of my model. There is one assumption in it that needs to be verified on election day. But if one of my turnout models nails the election, I'll be crowing pretty loudly

Some seem concerned that the fraud will be
especially huge this time. The fraud has
always been there. Its baked in the turnout
already from previous elections. When
the Repubs get in: fix the economy, fix
the schools, fix the fraud and let NBC die on the vine from lack of admin
interviews as an example to the others, and it will be cakewalks with blue
states turning red over the medium term.
If Obama gets back in, the opposite will happen and the USA is
permanently fked, so make sure it doesn't happen. Two more days.....

1688 The sky in Philly is completely cloudless and the most perfect blue I can remember. The sun is low, and everything is in sharp focus, bright and golden. It's still cold, but going up to 49 degrees this afternoon, with little wind.

I have my ticket printed out for the rally, and my train tickets in hand. I'm going up early, and hoping to find a nice lunch somewhere between the station and the rally site. I'm told that the West Trenton trains are usually empty on a Sunday, but should be standing room only today. I have an outfit that is warm without sacrificing cuteness, and I'm forgoing my affected American accent to show the world that the Ds don't have a monopoly on immigrant voters.

I'm going to hang out with the next President of the United States and 20 thousand friends today.

"Senators have to actually make tough decisions, instead of hiding behind Reid's decision to force the Senate to spend 2 years sitting on their heads."

Yeah, remind me to punch old-guy, war hero John McCain, in the nut sack, if he ever deigns to visit Tucson again.

(Which he won't. And I would be hard pressed to punch ANYONE in the nut sack, but he has deserved it every single year he has served as Senator, according to my research, so I would have momentum going for me, no?)

I really think that we in AZ, and all you all are losing something with Kyle's retirement.

Jeff Flake should have been McCain's replacement, years ago.

Could have used some seasoning by a Senior Senator Kyle.

Not gonna happen.

We are just going to have to wait for that senile old fuck, McCain (who calls some pretty nefarious Senate colleagues "my friend") to have the fucking decency to fucking die, already.

He is a Specter, a wannabe Byrd, he will not go gently and for reasons that I cannot begin to fathom, Arizonans seem to like voting for him out of unbreakable habit

I know it is crass to wish death on an honorable man, a war hero, one of my State's highest representatives...

But my lifetime experience teaches me, that the only reliable way to get them out is once they die of old age, after serving for 60 + years.

He will not honorably retire!

1692 It is not corruption in their eyes: The media view themselves as soldiers or secret agents in a War against the enemy, which happens to be half of the country. What would normally be unprofessional or unethical is evaluated by different standards under this perspective. For instance, an agent/ journalist pretend to be what they are not in order to help their "country" fight and win the war. Soldiers shoot to kill an enemy soldier, and journalists write to destroy reputations. We are not part of their "country" and are considered as an enemy country. Actions to destroy an enemy force are not corrupt, they are battle strategy.

1694 i stopped believing anything that the govt.controlled media had to say when i was a young paratrooper in viet nam in 1968.wally crankcase said we have lost the war however i was there and we kicked the crap out of the commies.we killed 50,000 of the bastards and all we needed to do to end it was go north.that would have ended the war in about 3 months but LBJ who thought he was a general instead of a Texas bag man said no we will do search and destroy.search and destroy is little more than attrition on the asian main land which is how you loose because you will run out of bullets before they run out of coolies.in the war on muslims the dems are doing the same thing and will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory as they always do. if you want to hear real singers go to youtube and listen to jim reeves,patsy cline,bobby darin,or bob seger.to day music does not have the same soul!

1695 I've known a lot of cats. The black cats I've known tend to be easygoing and adaptable. The orange ones, prickly but smart. The white-and-black (panda) cats like to nip to show their affection.

I've only known one breed of purebred cats well, the Siberian, with a very small sample of 3. One was sickly (but smart and sweet), the other two prickly.
