Yep. This.

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


Yeah, but we love him as a deranged anti-hero. We know he's sick in the head, but we like who he's targeted.

mikemoto: 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.


There aren't many winnable seats, and the DCCC is going after what few there are. Gerrymandering over the last few years has left congress increasingly safe from any sort of substantial change.

He's always angry.


shower_in_my_socks: gerrymander: 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.

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.


HULK STOMP?

Given that Ruffalo likely volunteered, it doesn't seem like that considerable an expense. Or are you just mad that anyone is actively trying to campaign against Paul Ryan?

Best moment in The Avengers, hand down.

/well, giant fists down at any rate.

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.


That was kinda funny... when everybody looked at you like you were insane.

stopped reading posts after this above. taking out Bachmann and Ryan (and Cantor) is important. probably won't happen. but.... keep telling yourself that it is not significant.

gingerjet: mikemoto: 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.

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


a. Bachmann was not defeated in 2006 and 2008 which were very friendly wave years to the Democrats.
b. Her district was made even more Republican, partly by the Democratic governor, as a way to vote sink Republicans in Minnesota
c. While she is in a competitive race, she is still polling above 50%, meaning that you would have to get some of her supporters to switch
d. As for Ryan's seat, he has been ahead by at lesat 8 points in every poll of his race
e. Kathy Hochul in upstate New York is an incumbent Democrat currently locked in a nearly tied race. Wouldn't be a much better idea to send Bill Clinton to her district than to St Cloud, Mn?

Thanks to Republican gerrymandering, there are very few winnable seats. They're doing everything possible to ensure one-party rule for an entire generation.

The problem isn't choosing between "winnable seats" and "safely Republican seats." The problem is not having enough funds to go after every single possible seat.

Now run along and demand congress repeal obamacare by itself some more.

FirstNationalBastard: 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.

FirstNationalBastard: kronicfeld: Puny objectivist.

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

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.


..I... i liked Hawk and Dove... both versions (Hank and Don, then Hank and Dawn). :(

Hi, I'm the ghost of Ayn Rand. You might remember me from my horrible books and philosophies that damned my spirit to wonder the Earth for all eternity. I'm calling to tell you takers to vote for my disciple, Paul Ryan. Only when we have slashed all safety nets and allowed millions of you parasitic takers to die prematurely from starvation and poor healthcare will the wealthy of this country truly be able to prosper. So, vote Paul Ryan on Tuesday, then get back to work, you lazy plebs.

Hawk and Dove v. 2.0 was a love story... and then one day Hawk went crazy and killed Dove.

Now, now, he wasn't part of the Ang Lee fiasco. He may not have been the best Banner / Hulk, but he did very well. I even think Norton did a pretty good job.

I actually think Ruffalo did better than Norton as the Hulk. Part of that was probably the script and screen time (he didn't have to carry the whole movie), but he really did manage to get the unassuming science guy down.
 
2012-11-05 10:54:01 AM  
It's completly unimportant to run against people like Ryan and Bachmann. I mean, look at Newt Gingrich. His district was so red that no Democrat had a chance. Why even bother running against him?

Until somebody did run against him...and won.
 
2012-11-05 11:17:10 AM  
It's kind of too bad Ruffalo hasn't run against Ryan. He could pull it off.

Because he grew up there and couldn't possibly remember anything from his childhood?
Because BUSINESS is more important than citizens??

LOL

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


You think Bachman can count to Potato, let alone understand any part of business?
 
2012-11-05 12:01:03 PM  
Oops, Ryan, not Bachman. Well, same for him. I've seen no sign of sentience in anything he's said, either.

This Face Left Blank: 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.


Yeah, but lots of people do admire him.

People are strange - all kinds and levels of farked-up. Whatever farked-up thing is out there, there's someone, somewhere, into it. Kind of helps me come to terms with the Politics tab.

Wouldn't that make his message more powerful? How Paul Ryan has consistently shiat on his district and it has resulted in family owned business disappearing from the area? I mean that was pretty much the whole argument. "I am from the area but as a result of the failed leadership of Paul Ryan the area has deteriorated resulting in the loss of all of the stores that were owned by people I knew personally."



But hey that is only taking what you said right now and putting different political spin on it. Took him all of an hour to record the messages at best, and he probably knows a lot of people that live in the area. He probably still has friends and possibly family in the area. I still pay attention to what happens in and around Madison after I moved away. I still pay attention to what happens in Boston because I have a sizable portion of my family there and visit frequently. I still pay attention to what happens in rural parts of Pennsylvania because I have a lot of family there. I still get the local papers from Pennsylvania.


Just because you leave someplace does not automatically mean you are completely disconnected from it.
