I can't imagine my party giving me a choice between a doddering, geriatric warmonger, a plastic talking head from the LDS, and a wacko religious nut.

I'd be more interested in a preseason game.

Or maybe it's just that Republicans leave the crying, worrying and hand-wringing to the Libtards.

Yeah, you wouldn't want the Republicans to worry over little ol' things like our plummeting economy. They've been asleep at the wheel for the last several years, so what difference does it make now?

Well of course they do. The Libtards are much better at crying, worrying, and hand-wringing than they are at lying, cheating, stealing, and jacking off derelicts in public restrooms while mumbling scripture.

Let's see...unwarrented, prolonged, illegal war? Check.
GRowing concern on the part of the majority of the population that this could increase the targetiness of the USA? Check.
GOP supporting a major distraction by playing a mock turf war with mock warriors and jacking each other off and frothing at the mouth in a creepy, homoerotic manner about men in tights? Check.

Considering how crappy the choices are on both sides of the aisle, a test pattern is more interesting than Super Tuesday.

Submitter: Poll shows Republicans more interested in Super Bowl than Super Tuesday. Can you blame them?

Nope, I flipped through Fox News today and was unsurprised to see them talking about the Super Bowl, except they were comparing presidential wins to where the Super Bowl was held. They paralleled Bush's win to Super Bowl XXXVIII (new window) and Super Bowl XIV (new window) to Reagan's win. Both Super Bowls were held in the candidates' governed states.

So obviously they not-so-subtly said, "Hey, this year's Super Bowl is in Arizona!" I wanted to throw my drink at the TV, but instead I just changed the channel, like I should have.

FOX subtly endorses McCain there but Hannity, Rush and Coulter are all saying he's not conservative ennuf and are threatening to jump aboard the ClintCo bandwagon. Wot's a righty tighty unused to conflicting talking points to do? Think for himself? Nope, that's off the table. That's right just STFU and watch the game.

Obama is the most electable candidate running in the race today, GOP or Democrat. Do you actually pay any attention to politics or do you just rehash tired talking points with no basis in reality?

Wait...after reading your post again, I don't want you to answer that.

Doesn't matter. Everyone's pretty much put Hillary at top. The press is pushing her and if it's close, her superdelegates will run all over Obama at the ocnvention.

What's a Super Bowl?

Actually, it's been pretty funny watching the Fox Network running ads tying the Super Bowl to Super Tuesday, claiming it's a merging of "America's two favorite pastimes." An utterly BS claim, but it does speak volumes about their tendency to view politics as a game, and their desire for their viewers to do the same.

Recall all Repuglikkans: "Doesn't matter. Everyone's pretty much put Hillary at top. The press is pushing her and if it's close, her superdelegates will run all over Obama at the ocnvention."

Either way, it still adds up to a win for the GOP. Hillary is the only other person on this earth that is less electable than Obama. Okay, that may be slight hyperbole, but you get the point.

We live in a VERY bigoted American. Sadly, neither a brother nor a woman has even as sliver of a chance.

What are you watching/reading? I've been pretty affixed to MSNBC/CNN and a bunch of political websites, and I can't find a single trace of this Clinton bias I seem to be hearing so much about. If anything, it's the exact opposite, as evidenced today when Wolf Blitzer showed two emails he received: one from an Obama supporter giving some well-thought out reasons he should be president and would be our best hope for a better America, and one from a Hillary supporter saying she's voting Clinton because we need a woman in the White House.

I'm a huge Obama supporter, so you would think I'd be tuned to look for any bias against my candidate, but I honestly cannot find any.

Just wait for the general election when all the GOP racists' votes (and I'm guess a few more!) count.

Fortunately for those of us who live in reality, the numbers don't back up your claims at all. Perhaps you forgot/never realized, but Obama got nearly as many white votes in South Carolina (a bastion of racism) as the white woman and the white man did, and he won the predominantly white state of Iowa.

America is still racist, to be sure, but it seems like the inherent racism in our country has evolved from being against all individual members of a group to the group itself. We look at people like Obama or Tiger Woods and don't really even see their race because they are accomplished, strong members of society. However, even though they might avoid (based on individual achievement) the pains of racism, the race that they belong to can still provoke irrational fear and bigotry in a lot of people.

In short, I think you're totally wrong for several reasons (the aforementioned being one of them).

The GOP racists would never vote for any democrat. Arguing that Obama will lose because he can't make racists vote Democrat is like arguing McCain will lose because he can't pull in the communist vote.

It's absurd and intellectually dishonest.
 
2008-02-03 02:21:29 PM  
Sounds about right, conservatives are far more black and white minded , given to strong in-group/out-group categorization. Perfectly suited to the sports fan my team vs your team level of thought.

Wasting precious sports fan time considering well reasonned arguments for positions on issues is for pu$$y libs.

Ah, I think you missed my point. America is a still a VERY racist state. That will be again proven after this election. Much like every election in the history of United States, this one will go to a white male.

The Dems have managed to come up with not just 1, but 2 absolutely unelectable candidates! How impressive. This will insure AT LEAST 4 more years of racist GOP rule.

I think their caucus is being held in an airport restroom or a bath-house this year.

Yeah, and people question how the Clintons are going to win. Nobody has the political insight the Clintons do. I'm always impressed with the way they've managed to be teflon to all the crap people throw on them. That's why I'm confident that Hillary can handle the Repuglicans better than Obama.

Exactly. It's that sort of nonsense that is marginalizing Clinton as the 'female' candidate in the same way Jesse Jackson was marginalized as the 'black' candidate. It's going to destroy her campaign if you give it enough time, and the media seems to be subtly trying to undermine her campaign at every juncture. If you watched in the run up to the SC primary, it was pretty obvious that a majority of the talking heads (that I saw, anyway) had it in for Clinton and her particular brand of dirty politicking.

We won't all stay at home; we'll simply hold our nose and vote for McCain.

We've got the same problem the dems had back in 2004. We don't have anyone we really want to vote FOR; but we definitely have someone we're voting against.
