I hear ya man, I hear ya.


ED: You see a well groomed garden. In the middle, on a small hill, you
see a gazebo.
ERIC: A gazebo? What color is it?
ED: (Pause) It's white, Eric.
ERIC: How far away is it?
ED: About 50 yards.
ERIC: How big is it?
ED: (Pause) It's about 30 ft across, 15 ft high, with a pointed top.
ERIC: I use my sword to detect good on it.
ED: It's not good, Eric. It's a gazebo.
ERIC: (Pause) I call out to it.
ED: It won't answer. It's a gazebo.
ERIC: (Pause) I sheathe my sword and draw my bow and arrows. Does it
respond in any way?
ED: No, Eric, it's a gazebo!
ERIC: I shoot it with my bow (roll to hit). What happened?
ED: There is now a gazebo with an arrow sticking out of it.
ERIC: (Pause) Wasn't it wounded?
ED: OF COURSE NOT, ERIC! IT'S A GAZEBO!
ERIC: (Whimper) But that was a +3 arrow!
ED: It's a gazebo, Eric, a GAZEBO! If you really want to try to
destroy it, you could try to chop it with an axe, I suppose, or you
could try to burn it, but I don't know why anybody would even try.
It's a @#$%!! gazebo!
ERIC: (Long pause. He has no axe or fire spells.) I run away.
ED: (Thoroughly frustrated) It's too late. You've awakened the gazebo.
It catches you and eats you.
ERIC: (Reaching for his dice) Maybe I'll roll up a fire-using mage so
I can avenge my Paladin.

And Romney gets to stand on a stage and tell America that not only should we do exactly what Bush did, we should go even bigger and favor the rich even more. Yeah. Obama is totally doomed.


The scary thing about that graph is that, in 2009, some people thought the state of the economy was Obama's fault.

This chart clearly predicts that Obama will be CRUSHED by falling yaks while riding a bicycle in Duluth. Book it, Dano.

why you gotta bring a bicycle into it =(. It coulda been a big rock, or a gazebo or a drive-in theater screen. But you had to go for bike.

It's perfectly fair to say that Obama's ahead right now, and by a decent margin. But that doesn't have much bearing on whether the same will be true in November.

honk if you demand satisfaction: Epoch_Zero: theorellior: Renart: If you look at a county-by-county or precinct-by-precinct U.S. map, it starts to make more sense. Most cities, as well as areas with non-white populations and/or universities, go for the Democrats, even in "red" states. But in a lot of the red states, the rural population outnumbers the urban/minority/educated populations.

Red vs blue is basically rural vs urban, and secondarily coastal vs continental.

/Like Texas, where I live. Dallas, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, and El Paso all went for Obama in the last election, but there are vast swathes of derp in between the big cities.

Just you wait, guys. Romney's going to surprise you all. I've already heard he's hired the best debate coach in the universe, and he's going to make sure that Romney crushes Obama in the debates. Plus, he's hired a clairvoyant who has assured him that the economy is going to start cratering in the middle of October and Osama bin Laden is going to release a new video on November 1 revealing that he is still alive and that Obama made up the assassination attempt. The Obama Cheerleading Brigade will fall into disillusion, leading Romney to an absolutely unprecedented sweep of the Electoral College and a 2-1 landslide victory in the popular vote. Every single downballot Republican will win their race as a result. That will lead to years upon years of prosperity as tax cuts for the rich finally start trickling down to the masses. The GOP will finally establish permanent rule over the nation as free enterprise showers Americans with buckets of wealth that convince everyone that even the tiniest vestiges of socialism are evil.

Lunch will be served.
