LarryDan43: Kill all birds, except bald eagles. Those are patriotic.


Specially if they're crying and sparkly!

Tommy Moo: Aarontology: Gas prices influencing someone's vote is a great way to find out who is a moron.

I would say about 1/5 people vote for genuinely good reasons. On one side you have a bunch of sucker fundies who run out to the polls every four years in response to the GOP banging the abortion drum, knowing full well they will ignore it and put all of their energy into securing tax cuts for the wealthy once they are elected. On the other side you have uneducated morons who vote for Clinton because he's cool and charming, or Obama because he's black. On both sides you have people voting for whomever promises to give them everything they want right this minute and not make them pay for it.


I think the Republicans forgot that abortion was supposed to be a cynical turnout-driver. They've been using it so long that now we have a crop of politicians (at State levels) who actually try to restrict/ban it.

I actually doubt there are many people voting for Obama because he's black (in the sense of: people voting for Obama, who would vote for Romney if Obama was (more than half) white).

I'm thinking more along the lines of people backing the bus up into the ghetto and filling it with people who literally don't know anything at all about Obama other than "Holy shiat there's a black man running for President!" These are people who probably wouldn't vote at all otherwise. Is this all people in the ghetto? Of course not. It's not even close to a majority of them. But, if it's even 10% of them, that's an extra million votes for Obama nationwide.

What percentage of the people in the trailer park are going to get on the bus who wouldn't vote other than "Holy shiat there's a black man running for President!" ?

Probably about the same. Those people would also be counted in my point that most voters pick a candidate for really silly reasons.

You can get just as many bigoted whites who wouldn't usually vote turn up to vote against Obama as well.

I have vague memories of a study post-election trying to figure out whether Obama's race(s) were a net help or hindrance, and they concluded it was a (not too big) net hindrance, which seems intuitively correct, especially given that most black people who vote vote Democrat.

My impression at the time was that if Obama was white McCain could have conceded before noon, but part of that was because he was running against McCain/Palin.
