Well, we told you not to make him angry.

If you're getting a Hulk to call me, it had better be Bill Bixby or Lou Ferrigno.

Puny objectivist.

This is why the Democrats will NOT take back the House. They are more obsessed with taking out Ryan and Michele Bachmann then actually going after winnable seats.

I would really like to have a local reporter from that House district interview Ruffalo, to see if he could name one business or district-specific political issue.

kronicfeld: Puny objectivist.


Actually, early Amazing Spider-Man comics had an objectivist bent.

See, Steve Ditko, co-creator of Spider-Man, is one of those crazy Ayn Rand followers, and tried to work a lot of Objectivist stuff into the book. Thankfully, Stan Lee's dialog diluted the effect so Spider-Man didn't suck.

However, when Ditko went out on his own, all the rest of his characters were infused with his Randroid notions... The Question, The Creeper, Hawk and Dove, and most notably, Mr. A

Thankfully, Squirrel Girl escaped this horrible fate.

And Ditko... well, he's so crazty, he doesn't accept money for the Spider-Man movies, and uses original art worth thousands of dollars as cutting boards for his vegetables.

/Remember, kids, Objectivism is a sickness.

Eh. A district polling R +8 is worth the effort of a pre-recorded celebrity phone call or two. Probably not going to happen, but still worth trying.

Dude. I live in the same city I grew up in, but on those occasions when I pass by the old neighborhood I'm constantly surprised at what old businesses have closed/changed/whatever. If you're not living in the area, you miss out on a lot -- and that includes political issues.

And maybe it's missed your notice, but BUSINESSES are run by, and serve customers who are, PEOPLE.

That's got to be a GOP rally. Pelosi was fantastic, never lost a vote in 4 years, and passed a single-payer bill. Boehner lost a vote in his first 48 hours as Speaker.

And getting back the House really isn't feasible this time around. But the Senate stayed Democratic against all odds.

Ruffalo is a very political guy. I'm sure he's aware of what's going on "back home." I'm also pretty sure he knows whether he wants an Ayn Rand dumbass representing his old stomping grounds.

Yes, that is the best bit, but for me it has equal footing with the bit where Hulk and Thor kill that flying thing and smash into grand central, they stand there for a bit and then Hulk side-punches Thor. That bit actually made me LOL irl. The entire farking theater turned around to look at me at that point.

What does this have anything to do with the DFL and going after seats? Did they spend any money here? The article doesn't say. This is about one guy doing some robo calls. Calm the fark down.

/and Bachmann's district has been winnable in the past and she is in a competitive race this time around as well
 
2012-11-05 03:16:19 AM  
Good luck ousting any of these assholes. The districts are gerrymandered to shiat, and at least here in Ohio, the GOP has managed to make it as difficult as possible to fix.

We've got an issue on the ballot that would take redistricting out of the politicians' hands, and into those of a bipartisan appointed panel with specific rules. Since this is Ohio, the Republican-written language on the ballot was completely insane and biased, which lead to a liberal uproar. So did the GOP rewrite the blurb to be more accurate? Nope. They put the legal text of the entire issue on the ballot. Takes like an entire page, and is impossible to decipher unless you already knew what it was talking about.

I might just want to add that i live in a country of average intelligence rednecks of many racial groups. Most of the time their sense of humour is more, how shall we put it, less intellectual. Salt of the earth, common clay. You know, morons.

Huh. I liked that line. Twists expectations, in typical Joss Whedon style. Also, I liked Ruffalo's work in that movie, although I couldn't have picked him out of a lineup prior to seeing it.

/And yet people still love the Objectivism-inspired asshole named Rorschach.


Rorschach wasn't someone to look up to. He was a fascinating character who grew up in bad circumstances and tried to do good. Ultimately what he saw and experienced broke him, turning him from someone the Nite Owl could trust & work with into a violent loner. As a reader, yeah, i loved the character, but not because of who or what he was, but because it was so well written. The little hints and flashbacks they dropped along the way filled out his backstory, and made you understand what made him that way. You had some sympathy for him, even though he wasn't someone to admire.

In the comic, my favorite moment was when he walked into a bar full of tough guys and got the info he wanted - not by beating someone until they cracked, but by torturing one particular person while the rest of the bar watched. The tough guys are so sickened by what they were seeing that they gave him the info to get him to stop. The low-life tough-guys had more empathy then the hero.

This pretty much. It works too. During the last Presidential election the Democrats contested pretty much every race in every state. It's the only way for them to consistently beat the GOP because they don't have quite as rich of a donor base (Not so many billionaires lining up to give the Democrats millions of dollars to win elections, funny that) but they have a much larger ground organization than the GOP could ever hope to have. Hell, even paying the daily rate the GOP can't compete with what the Democrats get for free, which then further goes to drain their billionaire-backed war chest.

It's an effective strategy because it diffuses the effect the big money donors and PACS have on races. A PAC spending 10 million on media buys isn't as effective if they have to spread it over 20 Cities instead of just 5.

Rorschach is great because he lives by his principles. He did an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. He never lied. He never did compromise. We all do, every day.

Grown adult learning to compromise? Next you'll be telling me that children are encouraged to share and cooperate with each other.

Moore is pretty clear that he intended Rorschach to be a total nutcase. Sympathetic, maybe, but definitely not a role model that anyone should follow.
