I see the Democrats are either throwing in the towel in Tennessee, or are attempting to "Out-crazy" the GOP. In either case, though, nothing good will come of this.

In a November scenario which somehow produces a landslide across the country for Obama, 400+ electoral votes, the Dems win back the house and all the Senate races except 4 (MS, TN, UT & WY) resulting in a 59-41 Dem Senate and a massive majority in the house, they would still have no chance in Tennessee, even with a good candidate. This is a non-story, its a non-competetive race and nobody (sane) wanted to be the sacrificial lamb.

//Even in the best case, dream scenario, I still couldn't figure out how dems could get to 60

Regarding the Texas senate seat, I haven't seen any post-primary polling, and the GOP nominated a real Tea-party whackjob. If the Dems throw some resources at that race, work on getting out in the vote in urban areas, and keeps the President as far away from Texas as possible, I'd put an outside chance on enough mainstream Republicans staying home to make the race competitive. Total outside chance, definitely not likely, but still more likely than TN

Bob Corker is too popular down here so the dems threw whatever idiot that would actually run, against him. Repubs have a stranglehold on almost all the offices here except maybe the congresscritters/mayors of the few liberal enclaves of Knoxville (way more liberal than most people think),Chatanooga, Nashville and Memphis. That will change in a few years when people get tired of their elected officials that are only about gays guns and Jesus and actually want some shiat done (the cirrrrcccllleee of derrrrrpppp), just give it time.

THIS DOES NOT WORK. I've seen it fail, up close and personal like.

You want to bring out the voters whose 08 vote was the first time they ever voted, or the first time in decades. You need to get disillusioned Dems who've lost year after year excited again, light a fire. You need to get ground troops out and mobilize all those folks to actually get them out to the polls. Then you need to make damn sure they vote all the way down the ticket, as much as you can.

Any moderate Republican who would be alienated by Obama is not gonna vote for the Dem anyway, and likely isn't really a moderate Republican so f--k the pandering.

Obama has no reason to show up to Texas, but denying his existence is NOT the way to do it.

Via the Tennessean, the Tennessee Democratic party has condemned Clayton, saying in a statement that he is "associated with a known hate group" (a reference to Public Advocate of the United States), and blaming his victory on the fact that his name appeared first on the ballot.

That seems like a plausible explanation, but why are primary voters so uninformed? I'd think that they would be more inclined to actually know just who it is that they're selecting to represent them and their party.

The primary voters are uninformed because Tennessee is an echo chamber. I live in Chattanooga and never saw so much as a campaign sign for a Democratic candidate. I initially intended to vote in the Republican primary, just so I could have a say in who might actually be representing me. I changed by mind at the last second because I wanted to see who the Democrats were running. I had never heard of a soul. I didn't vote for Clayton, but I easily could have. Right now, there is no opposition party in Tennessee, leading us to a choice between the incumbent Republican and a crazy John Bircher.

Maybe they should think about having a run-off next time. 26% shouldn't get you in the general election. Maybe this will convince them to fix that.

When a soi-disant Democrat (wouldn't this guy be more at home among the Publicans?) spews crazy, he gets called on it. When a Publican spews crazy, Fox Izvestia doubles down.

Where is the racism which is the reason for most elections?

"President Obama's inability to break 60 percent of the vote against "uncommitted" in Tuesday's Kentucky Democratic primary drew national headlines and set off a debate about the role race and culture played in the strong vote against the incumbent."

It means self-styled/self-proclaimed, with an implication that it isn't accurate - so it could be used for most "Democratic Peoples Republic of X", Republicans claiming to be about cutting government spending, or most anonymous people on the internet who claim to be experts on something (i.e. virtually everyone on the internet).

Unless they're supporting the idea that women are the property of men and that marriage was a property contract like God intended, then they're not promoting traditional values and morals.

Switching his position on abortion (as Bill Bradley pointed out) and the way he completely mishandled his family's property near Nashville did him in. Abused tenants with standing sewage and lakes turned copper green from zinc waste do not make good for campaign PR.

I wonder how many traditional marriage people are aware of some of the other traditional marriage arrangements from the Old Testament, like this one:

A levirate marriage (Hebrew: yibbum) is mandated by Deuteronomy 25:5-6 of the Hebrew Bible and obliges a brother to marry the widow of his childless deceased brother, with the firstborn child being treated as that of the deceased brother, (see also Genesis 38:8) which renders the child the heir of the deceased brother and not the genetic father. There is another provision known as halizah (Deuteronomy 25:9-10), which explains that if a man refuses to carry out this 'duty,' the woman must spit on the ground in front of him, take one of his shoes, and the others in the town must always call him 'the one without a shoe'. While this provision implies that a brother may opt out of Levirate marriage, there is no provision in the Books of Moses for the widow to do so. However, this does not mean the widow is unable to opt out.

It simply means that he was raised among yahoos. Kind of like being raised among wolves, but with less fur. About the same on the butthole sniffing though. So he's got that going for him. Which is nice.

It was a none of the above vote. The Democrats threw religion under the bus sided with the first amendment and the voters were pissed.

I think that is actually what happened, but go ahead, feel persecuted.


364,000 Democrats still voted for Alvin Greene in the general election solely because he had a 'D' after his name. It certainly wasn't because he was a charismatic candidate full of great ideas.

GhostFish: Via the Tennessean, the Tennessee Democratic party has condemned Clayton, saying in a statement that he is "associated with a known hate group" (a reference to Public Advocate of the United States), and blaming his victory on the fact that his name appeared first on the ballot.

That seems like a plausible explanation, but why are primary voters so uninformed? I'd think that they would be more inclined to actually know just who it is that they're selecting to represent them and their party.


Seriously, it's 2012.

I absentee ballot voted in my primary and the complete LACK of (decent) information via internet on at least a third of the candidates was ASTOUNDING.

And when I go to the polls I'm usually the only person in line with a printed ballot, my took-a-half-hour chosen candidates highlighted.

If your "traditional morals" are to hate your neighbours for an assortment of reasons, then a group would be a hate group.

If your "traditional morals" are to love thy neighbour, then a group is probably a Christian group.


Hey, you know that long list of sins in Leviticus, including the most important one of no homosexuality? Leviticus 19:16-18, and Leviticus 19:33, also in there. "Do not spread slander, do nothing that endangers your neighbour. Do not hate a fellow Israelite, rebuke your neighbour frankly only so you aren't complicit in their activities. Do not seek revenge, do not bear a grudge, love your neighbour as yourself.... When a foreigner resides among you, do not mistreat them. They must be treated as you would treat yourself; remember your slavery in Egypt."

Of course, unlike the no homosexuality law one in Leviticus, this actually gets repeated in the New Testament. "What are the most important commandments? Love God, love your neighbour", Matthew 22:36-40.

It's up to you. Which is "traditional morals"? Hating a sinner, or loving those around you and living in peace?

smitty04:

Some see it as an attack on religion, others see it as separating religion from politics. People in Tennessee see it as an attack, Residents of Memphis will vote Democratic even if a yellow dog was on the ticket. Most people in Tennessee wish that the Mississippi river would change course and place Memphis in a different state.


Actually, people i know in East Tennessee refer to the entire city of Memphis as 'Memphis, Arkansas'.
