Exception Collection: Pincy: It's plain ridiculous that we continue to allow the weather to have an impact on elections. As Bathia Mapes can attest to, we here in Oregon know how to do elections. I only hope other states will come join us in the 21st century sooner than later.

Washington's exclusively vote by mail as well.

Thank goodness for vote by mail.

//Voted for Defazio.

I'm in Issa's district still, and I'll be voting for Tetalman.

bunner: Ted Kennedy's Brain Tumor: The world didn't deserve shiat.

That's a pretty innerestin' POV, considering it's all we got and I'm pretty sure the USA is located on it.


You're electing the President of these United States; his concern, one should presume, is primarily that of the citizen of these United States. The folly of the Iraq War and continued presence in Afghanistan is certainly something to decry but not because of world opinion; the international community did not waste nearly the amount of blood, treasure and prestige as the United States did in those endeavors.

The Great EZE: I just want to say that the Obama supporters here have been delightful. I know the politics tab can look like an Obama-Biden campaign office at times, but I don't think the support ever got obnoxious. It was always thoughtful, fair, and hilarious. And it made for a nice respite from bumping heads with Conservatives out in the real world.

If things don't go our way, it's all good. Better to be right and alone than wrong and crowded. And I still wouldn't want to be associated with any other group of losers than you guys. I say that as a Cubs fan.


Sorry about the loses since the 1908 election series.

Otherwise agreed.

Mailed in my vote for Bronco Bamma a week ago. Oregon mail in elections ftw. I walk by the elections building to work a lot, in Portland, and have been happy to see a steady stream of people driving/biking/ skating by the ballot boxes on the curb and dropping their ballots in.
Romney winning means a lot of lulz for us as we watch him fail miserably. If he does somehow squeak by, I'm starting a betting pool as to when the Nixonesque scandals start. This guy has way too baggage already not to have lulzy shenanigans occurring. And watching his followers get instant buyer's remorse? Might be fun to watch. Also, magic underwear.

But I would forego all that, if I don't have to worry that my reproductive rights aren't going to be stomped on and the Handmaid's Tale doesn't become cloer to reality.

Cyberluddite: OK, I live in California, which Obama will win by a double-digit margin, so my vote is meaningless. I certainly wouldn't dream of voting for Mittens or any other right-wing farkstick, but I'm not wild about Obama--I voted for him in 2008 given the realities of that election, but I've been disappointed with the way he's given in and failed to fight back against the Repubs. I'll probably vote for him again--mainly because I want his margin of victory to be big enough to be deemed to be a solid rejection of Romney and the derp brigade, but I could be talked into voting for Gary Johnson or some other third party candidate. If anybody wants to try to talk me into it, give me a good reason why to vote for someone other than Obama (or Mittens, for whom there is zero cance I'd cast a vote), and I promise I'll open-mindedly read and consider your arguments before I vote in the morning. Go ahead, convince me.


Third party candidates never really have a chance to win an election but the votes that go to third party candidates are still votes that the major parties want. This means that the more votes that the major parties will try and adopt and adapt to the third party principles, based on the support that they get, so that they can get their vote in the next election. So if you vote for Gary Johnson he will not get elected into office but your vote will help move the Republican party towards a more libertarian platform. It will help eliminate social conservative policies while strengthening their attitude towards economic conservatism.

Like all discourse between government, those who feel obligations have not been met are certainly free to reign in any agreement they have with the United States. That is the avenue of retort available to them as nation states.

Blue_Blazer: cmb53208: Aside from Romney, the person I'm looking forward to seeing defeated is that loathsome, deadbeat piece of shiat Joe Walsh. How the fark does someone who's over $100,000 behind in child support let alone get elected to Congress? It'll be sweet to see Tammy Duckworth mop the floor with that piece of shiat.

Back in my own state, it would be soooo lovely to see Paul Ryan defeated twice: first by Joe Biden and second by Rob Zerban for his Congressional seat.

Ted Kennedy's Brain Tumor: The world didn't deserve shiat. The President of the United States is not accountable to the world. Bush deserves all the criticism in the world for his imperial adventures; those criticisms, however, are of a nature that they squandered American blood and treasure--not that they offended some two-bit asshole in Caracas or Tehran.


American Exceptionalism is a myth that neocons propped up because they believe that societies need myths to act as glue for a nationalist identity. They are scared of losing power due to a lack of such an identity. Fine. But when they acted on that myth to the nth degree, things change. It's just a myth, but they acted like it was true and that threatens people around the world. I personally feel that this warrants an apology. Whether it's good politics or not is up to debate. But to me it's common sense that it warrants an apology. Certainly the opposite isn't true. Certainly we shouldn't be proud of what we did.

I think she's only on the ballot in 4 states. CA, maybe FL. Not sure where else.
I actually saw her in a live interview and she was surprisingly cogent.

I voted on Friday, so I don't understand why we need to even have an election. I was surprised to encounter a 40 min wait in the north side of Chicago at 2 pm on a weekday, but I was happy to see so many people getting their voice heard, even if it's a foregone conclusion which way our state is gonna go.

Okay, I need to go to bed, but I'm going to share my predictions for tomorrow:

i.imgur.com

I'd love to believe that the blowout being predicted by Nate and others is real, but my gut still says that Florida goes to Romney. Still, with this map, even if there are shenanigans in Ohio, Obama doesn't need it to win reelection. I'd really like to avoid a situation where the entire election comes down to a single state. If Obama wins, it won't be as definitive as it was in 2008 (obviously) but it would be better for everybody's sanity if it's at least reasonably decisive.

Cthulhu_is_my_homeboy: ExperianScaresCthulhu: Vote third party.

My problem with third parties is that anyone who runs knowing they're going to get less than 5% of the vote, is obviously either too crazy or fanatical to be qualified to hold office.


That's what I like about parliamentary governments. You can maintain your ideological purity and still be assured that your fringe party will coalition with the mainstream party closest to your beliefs.

Unless, of course, you're a Liberal-Democrat in the UK, in which case you're likely to wake up with a severe case of buyer's remorse.

No one is claiming American exceptionalism outside pandering politicians. These concerns are realpolitik; the failures of the Bush administration are real but they are not because we squandered the "good will" of Europe.

The problem with your logic is that there will always be more ill informed, moderate, undecideds than there are well informed, ideological third party voters. Logic dictates that the major parties will go after the group that is 1) larger, 2) easier to manipulate and 3) more likely to change their vote. So the major parties will always be better off ignoring third party voters in an efforts to take in more of the undecided middle.
