heap: skullkrusher: I just like arguing facts and logic and honesty

the funny thing is, i actually believe you think that's what you're doing.

you have all the facts, all the logic, can summon up captain obvious and all of his obviousness...and the people that are looking at you like you just pooped on the carpet are just whiney-whinersons who wouldn't know logic if it legitimately raped their eyesockets.


yeah, it's real simple. The guy predicted a landslide, we got a squeaker as he said. Since BO didn't win the EC in a "squeaker" and his prediction was popular vote based in the first place, logic and the facts of the available statements lead to a simple conclusion for those of us not desperately trying to avoid such a conclusion for some strange reason

thamike: I know you enjoy nitpicking just for the hell of it, but Dick Morris was eating paint chips, so really, what's the difference which landslide he was referring to?


there is no difference but "Dick Morris is an idiot" is a very short conversation and Drew doesn't pay me the big bucks to have short conversations

heap: thamike: It's moot which kind of landslide he had in mind because there was only one kind possible, and only for one of the candidates.

if this were charades, this would be the part where we all touch our noses and dance about frantically.

his prediction was crap in either estimation - that he can't have a 'landslide' with one victory and a 'squeaker' with another is immaterial - he's a bloviating shiatbag who bloviates shiat for a living.

for real, who on earth would even guess that the response to his terminal wrongness would be consistency on his part? and why?

i keep coming back to what is the underlining point here - it's dick freaking morris. he's doing what dick morris has done, is doing, and will continue to do - be a bloviating gasbag.


On the bright side, this is what Bill Kristol finally letting reality dawn on him looks like:

Linux_Yes: New definition of 'cornholed' in webster dictionary: electoral count of 332 to 206.


No, that's the wrong edition. Getting trounced by 126 electoral votes means the losing party has a mandate to be obstructionist farktards. I hope the Dems remember this should the shoe ever be on the other nostril.

marius2: Weaver95: that makes Obama's win officially a landslide.

What is the official cut-off, if there is one, for a landslide victory?



the cutoff?

if you give me 332 dollars and i give you 206 back in return, you got landslided by 126 bucks. you got taken.

heap: i wonder if we can win a "Dick Morris award" from this one.

i'll let you google that one, odd that a person who isn't known for bad political predictions would have such an award named after him - before this election, even.

weird.


The "Dick Morris Award" was created (actually an earlier award was renamed in Dick's honor) after Dick predicted that the Republican Convention would propel Romney into a massive lead over Obama.

538th Psalm

Nate Silver is my statistician; I shall not fret.
He maketh me to lie down in blue states:
He leadeth me beside the bicoastal urban elites.
He restoreth my faith in the electoral college:
He leadeth me in the path of accuracy for his name brand's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of Diebold,
I will fear no recounts: For he is with me;
His blog and his stats, they comfort me.
He preparest a table of odds before me in the presence of partisan hacks;
He filleth my head with possible outcomes; My brain bloweth up.

Surely middle class tax relief and affordable health care shall follow me all the days of my life,
and Obama will dwell in the House of White for the next four years.

Be fair, the GOP is corrupt to the core, and given their rhetoric, we might see the civil war part 2.

That has got to be the funjiest f*cking tumblr in all the internetz.

Old white people who wish for a return to an america that existed only in the movies and their own failing imaginations, and young white people who are too stupid that the guys they want to put into public office so badly are the very same guys that f*cked the system up so badly that now they have to whore themselves out to find jobs that pay enough to cover their student loans just crack me the f*ck up.

To the old white people: your n*gger-free / gay-free / wetb*ck-free utopia never existed. Welcome to the 21st century.

To the young white people: Rmoney and men like him stole your future and your parents present. Think about that next time.

These "America died" people typify the delusional drama queens in all of this. No, America didn't die. It's still here, just like yesterday. It doesn't depend on your fantasies and delusions to exist. So when those are crushed, it lives on. With or without you.

What "died" is your DREAM of being rescued from a phantom threat. You've been played like a sucker. The problems you exaggerate were created by the people who tricked you into believing they will save you.

YOU feel like YOU died, because you've been pumped so full of fear you can't imagine surviving what comes next. Which is, nothing. Just like Y2K.

Nothing. Unless you create your own problems.

Wireless Joe: Bush claims mandate with a 286/252 Electoral College win and 3.5 million popular vote lead. "I earned capital in this campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it."

Obama asks nicely for mandate with 332/206 Electoral College win and 3.2 million (so far) popular vote lead.  "So we can start to build consensus around the challenges that we can only solve together."


I've said it before, and I'll say it again -- Obama is too nice to be a politician.

I think it's hilarious how my conservative Republican associates believed it was in the bag for Romney. I kept telling them it wouldnt be close -Obama would be reelected. But their echo chamber media had them believing it.

Reality hurts, eh? It's because reality has a liberal bias.

I do a pretty nice chocolate-bourbon pecan pie myself. I use this recipe with a few alterations. Use dark chocolate chips instead of semisweet, light corn syrup instead of dark, and brown sugar instead of white. Happy eating!
