12349876: phreezen: 12349876: phreezen: 12349876: phreezen: Wow, a link to TPM. Really? Please, TPM, tell us how to decode spin.

What the hell are you doing reading an article for a farking discussion thread?

Why is it link to TPM is a better question.

I don't care, just like I wouldn't care if a Breaking Bad discussion thread had a FreeRepublic link.

Of course you don't, I doubt it though. TPM is telling people how to decode spin is pretty funny.

Well you're wrong. I don't read TPM or any of the other liberal blogs. Lots of their posts link to legit news sites so I'll do that, but that's it. Just like I do with the conservative blogs, though Drudge is the only one that links to legit news sources with any consistency.


You don't read TPM or other liberals blogs but you know they have legit links to other news site? Where in this TPM article that has legit links but you don't read it? Confused? Me too.

The left would go apeshiat if the discussion thread was link to FOX telling people how to decode spin. I think you know it is not correct to link to any outside site. The link show go straight to the thread.

Shaggy_C: Romney will get a bounce from this debate. Just being on stage as an equal with the leader of the free world instantly elevates your status in the eyes of the everyman, even if you do have a shiat platform and everybody hates you.


As long as he maintains his composure. If he smirks inappropriately, gets cranky, throws an insult or hilariously bobbles one of his zingers, that will be all the media talks about tomorrow.

My prediction:

The media will declare a draw unless one of the candidates literally shiats their pants on stage, allowing them to continue the 'neck and neck' horse race narrative for another week.

As a back up, they might declare a mild victory for Romney (again with the avoidance of pants shiatting) in order to sell the idea of a comeback until the next debate.

I don't think there is any way Obama is declared victor by any of the news outlets. If that were the case you'd essentially be busting out the band to play on the deck of the Mitanic until it sinks a month from now...and well, that just doesn't sell many papers or generate as many page clicks.

Shaggy_C: Romney will get a bounce from this debate. Just being on stage as an equal with the leader of the free world instantly elevates your status in the eyes of the everyman, even if you do have a shiat platform and everybody hates you.


let's set the wayback machine to the end of August:

Romney will get a bounce from this convention Just being on stage and showcasing the party and the candidates to the nation elevates your status in the eyes of the everyman, even if you do have a shiat platform and everybody hates you.

Further. We need to go back to the beginning of August:

Romney will get a bounce from his VP nominee announcement. Just bringing a handsome young vibrant strong well-known conservative political leader up on the stage on a battleship elevates your status in the eyes of the everyman, even if you do have a shiat platform and everybody hates you.

etc.etc.

Seems the "shiat platform" and "everybody hates you" parts overpower the expected bounces every time.

What's some nasty-ass alcoholic drink that nobody likes? I'm thinking along the lines of retsina or Italian grappa - not cheap bum wine or malt liquor. The idea is that your group of watchers really don't want to drink it but according to some set of rules they will have to. This will probably cut down the number of group judged drinkable moments and remind everybody of what a horrible experience the debates are.

The difference is, those were relatively homogenous to the respective views. (liberals watched mostly the DNC and conservatives mostly watched the RNC with little mingling of the two)

Now, we have the two worlds colliding in a cataclysm of sperm, spittle and sticks up assholes. There is nothing holding back the lusting and joy that will come from these two groups just going at it like dogs on the nice shag but boy oh boy, whether they are coming or going, they are always just coming for the betterment of mankind. Poledancing for freedom, that's what they're doing and they won't stop until we've all made it to the joy of sexual relations with that woman. Drill, baby, drill all over the great Alaskan slopes as we push deeper and deeper into the heart of what really makes this making of a sweet, sultry love of politics that nothing can possibly come close to the sheer orgasmic bliss of seeing the other team driven before you, their tails between their legs, bouncing up and down with each step

Romney proved you didn't necessarily have to get a significant bounce from naming a running mate or their convention either. He's been very good at breaking new ground in terms of not exciting people. I predict a 2% to 4% for Obama after this debate.
 
2012-10-03 07:03:45 PM
My predictions:

- Romney will say dozens of ridiculously false things
- Obama and the moderator will not call him on it
- Obama will get slammed for three reasonable statements
- after watching the Bar Refaeli donation video, I'm going to go rub one out to that nude commercial she made awhile ago where she's rolling around on a bed.

I am half-white, I tend to say "um"
I did live in Indonesia with my mom
My predator drones are dropping bombs

I do got a dumb friend named Joe Biden
Who shoots himself in the foot with his own tongue
We did get thumped in 2010 by you chumps
And Mitch did fark my jobs plan
I'm still standin' here screamin', "fark Republicans"

Don't ever try to judge me dude
You don't know what the fark I've been through
But I know something about you
You went to Cranbrook, that's a private school

What's the matter Mitt, you disturbed?
This guy's relatable? his real name's Willard
And Willard lived at home with both parents
And Willard's parents had a real good marriage

This guy doesn't wanna debate he'll faint
Cause ain't no such thing as Latter-Day Saints
He's scared to death, he's scared to look in his farkin' yearbook
fark Cranbrook

fark the beat, I go acapella

Dude, you are going to lose. Romney is going full Michele Bachmann for this debate. He will enrage the Republican base, build them up to an engorged pelvic dementia that only a climax can cure and then urge them to elect him or suffer eternal pain. The media will go "Romney captured the Republican base very well tonight. Governor Romney won the debate."
