ravenlore: DamnYankees: robsul82: Obama wins 2008, MSNBC fills their pants.

Maybe I'm sappy, but I like how Olbermann's voice breaks.


If you're sappy, then so am I.


/I still have that sound file on my hard drive at home.


Happy Pappy?

You're both pretty lucky to have a family relationship that makes this seem like a good idea.

coco ebert: Hai guyz.

Just got back from Obama campaign headquarters in central NJ. I was making calls and as I posted on my FB, all the little old ladies in south Philly were out in droves early in the morning. As one old Black lady told me, "We can't have Romney in office. I'm too old to pick cotton." lol


OMFG, just WOW. That is fanf*ckingtastic. My jaw actually dropped when I read that.

Tigger: dforkus: cameroncrazy1984: dforkus: NateGrey: dforkus: robsul82: GoldSpider: PA is still a fairly safe Obama state, so I'll probably make a statement vote for Johnson.

/huh huh "johnson".

Ehhhhhhh, just to be safe, vote Obama. Pretty please.

Another bad sign for Obama, Johnson is going to end up being this election's nader. Lot's of youth that were caught up in the Obama hysteria of 08 are going to stay home, or vote Libertarian..

It's all going to start unraveling after 7 eastern.

Please dont stop posting tonight, your tears will be needed later.

Don't you worry about that, it's going to be a joy dispensing out the comeuppance

I doubt you'll be anywhere near here when the race is called. Will you take your medicine?

Absolutely, will you take yours??
The dems just aren't motivated like they were last time, and on the flip side the Anti Obama sentiment is palpable.
Also Romney's organization/ground game is an order of magnitude better than McCain.
We'll watch the democrats' hope unravel before our eyes

Not one of you 'gut feeling over statistics' types has had the balls to put any money on the line just yet.

You interested in being the first? How much do you want to place on a Romney win?

fivethirtyeight has adjusted Obama down by three points.

there you go, even Nate Silvers getting in on it...

I'm going to make it big and bold this time: It was sarcasm. Obama showed as 300EV, down from 303, when I made that post. Now it shows 313 again. It was sarcasm. There's very-nearly no chance of Romney winning. I was being sarcastic.

Yeah, Old Black people are farking awesome. Had one in my store the other day trying to use his smart phone to take a picture of a hat for his wife:

Old Man: How does this work?
Old Man 2: I dunno, try the voice commands
Phone: What's your input?
Old Man 1: Take picture, mother farker

Just in from voting. The polling station is literally next door. There was next to no one in the place but a ton of people milling around outside. The guy in front of me tried voting but wasn't registered in the state of Michigan and had no identification aside from a credit card. He even insisted that the old man at the table call his girlfriend to "prove it's me."

The angry old man told him to leave before telling me that I couldn't vote since I had requested an absentee ballot. I told him that I thought I was going to be out of the state during the election but did not leave, and that I had the township clerk's office cancel the ballot. He said, "You can't vote twice. Please leave." Accusing me of trying to vote twice really pissed me off. I demanded that he call the clerk's office to verify that my ballot had been cancelled but he refused, so another volunteer did. Everything worked out and I voted, but...

....the ballot scanning machine was completely broken and there was no back-up or replacement available. A lady eating a pulled pork BBQ sandwich told me that the clerk and his staff were coming to count them in person. Remarkable.
 
2012-11-06 05:05:02 PM  

incendi: d23: I know.. and I warned him in the last thread that there would be some comments.

I imagine he's learned his lesson by now... unfortunately, skink's daughter now exists on the internet, and therefore, sooner or later, rule 34 will be applied.


Maybe not. Homeschooled wife got teased for a while but people realized hubby posted her pic with no bad intention and finally left her alone.

/Until I brought it up again, damn me
