I love the headline: Allen West Wins Recount in Florida!

Actual article content- Alan West wins the right to have the votes recounted in an election that he's lost by 2400 votes.

These damn takers just keep adding to the cost of this election, don't they?

Breitbar was sending out news alerts that say things like ALLEN WEST AHEAD IN RECOUNT in one county in the district.

I don't see how he didn't win by a comfortable margin. I've been assured that all minorities will vote for a black candidate solely on the basis of their skin color. Add in all the republicans voting for him too and he should have got like 80% of the vote. Clearly the good people of Florida are the victims of mass election tampering.

antidisestablishmentarianism: When someone uses Democrat when they should be using Democratic, you can dismiss anything else they have to say.


Why? It's a bit silly grammatically, but the part of speech on Democratic isn't quite right for a title either, more a remnant of the party being called Democratic Republican back in the 1800s. It's also rather absurdly general, as both parties are democratic (and republican, for that matter, were you to use the adjective use of that word instead of the noun).

Not that "the Grand Old Party" is any less silly, but at least it's an actual name instead of a generic adjective regarding the system of government for the entire first world.

Good luck.
For every Allen West that barely gets booted out, there is a Michelle Bachmann sitting pretty.

If the law allowed, my (R) state senator and my (R) US House rep could probably go on a killing spree and still win reelection from prison. They have been proven corrupt and choosing personal gain over gains for their constituencies time and time again. People don't really even like either one of them. But they still vote for their incumbents religiously.

So if they will vote for obviously corrupt assholes, getting them to vote for a nutjob is a cake walk.
I mean, no matter how crazy the person is OH I ADMIRE HOW MUCH HE/SHE STANDS BY HIS FAITH AND BELIEFS

It's not about selecting responsible people to govern. Every election is a battle and they rally behind the same shield time and time again.

Most extreme right wing voters don't think their politics, they believe in them. They have faith. This is the state of our union now. You'd have as much luck getting many Republicans to convert to Islam as to vote out their wingnuts. These are people haven't let go of the Red Scare yet... Joe McCarthy was a patriot, Republican Jesus makes sense..... and they all vote.

We won't vote these wingnuts out anytime soon, we need to marginalize them to the back of the room. Sit them at the kids table. If we ever hope to govern our nation this is a must.

1) you are gramatically incorrect if you use the phrase "Democrat Party." Not because of anything to do with whether it's an adjective or whatever. But because it's a proper name. The proper name is the Democratic Party.

2) the phrase became popular on the right for the "rat" emphasis. With that in mind, you should be aware when you say it that not only are you gramatically wrong, but you are using a term conceived to be insulting.

3) so, now you know the grammar and history of this epithet and if you continue to use it, then yes, you are a right-wing asshole.

Why? It's a bit silly grammatically, but the part of speech on Democratic isn't quite right for a title either, more a remnant of the party being called Democratic Republican back in the 1800s. It's also rather absurdly general, as both parties are democratic (and republican, for that matter, were you to use the adjective use of that word instead of the noun).

Not that "the Grand Old Party" is any less silly, but at least it's an actual name instead of a generic adjective regarding the system of government for the entire first world.

No idea why. None at all. But the rule applies. Any time someone says "Democrat Party" they're raging right-wing assholes. Again. No clue why. You're right, it shouldn't mean anything. But it always does.

That's an entirely new level of batshiat nuts.

Another fun point, though I was too lazy to verify rumor has it that a bunch of Florida Ballots were printed on paper too big for the scantron machines. So the ballots are being copied, BY HAND, onto scantron-friendly ballots to be re-scanned.

Aside from showing once again that Florida is too incompetent to handle its own elections, this is just begging for screams of vote tampering.

randomjsa: Ah yes, the left celebrates the destruction of another minority, but remember kids... It's the right who are the racists.


If the right weren't racist they would have a lot more people of color in their tent.

/See also: If they were less sexist they would have more women.

They would also find less crazy people of color to run for them than convicted war criminal Allan West.

When you looked at the crowds at Romney events with the sea of predominantly white faces and then at the Obama events in which the crowds more closely resembled what America actually looks like in 2012 how you could not see that the GOP have a very real problem in terms of appealing to anyone but the old, the white and the fundified?

Fact of the matter is that all the derp that the right have spun since Obama's election in 2008 about "White liberal guilt" being a factor in his winning has been pure deflection. The reality is that there is a very real sense among some people in the mostly white GOP that the privilege that being white in American society once bestowed on an individual was going the way of the dodo in the wake of changing demographics and attitudes.

This is, I think, a large part of what has made them go so remarkably bat-shiat the last few years.

O'Reilly bemoaning the death of white privilege in the wake of the 2012 election results the other night on FOX told this tale again.

But you go on with your "Who's the real racists here?" derp in spite of all the facts.

Your inability to process reality is occasionally amusing.

/Yes, I'm very easily amused.

bugontherug: Loaded Six String: Does this apply to socially liberal, fiscal conservatives in your experience as well? I only ask because I don't use the term Democratic party, yet I'm not a raging right-wing asshole. Could just be me I suppose.

1) you are gramatically incorrect if you use the phrase "Democrat Party." Not because of anything to do with whether it's an adjective or whatever. But because it's a proper name. The proper name is the Democratic Party.

2) the phrase became popular on the right for the "rat" emphasis. With that in mind, you should be aware when you say it that not only are you gramatically wrong, but you are using a term conceived to be insulting.

3) so, now you know the grammar and history of this epithet and if you continue to use it, then yes, you are a right-wing asshole.


I attribute it to vocal laziness I suppose, though I must admit I have been a bit curious as of late as to why one political party named itself to promote democracy, whereas the other named itself to promote a republic (correct?). Just seems a bit odd to me. Thank you for the history lesson, but I want to point out that by using this incredibly slight terminology faux pas to pigeon hole me into a group of the "others" to make it easier for you to deride me is intellectually lazy. If you wish to heap scorn on someone (whether it was directed at me personally or just a generalization) you should probably find something with a bit more meat to it, especially when your derision is based on a supposition of their political views (in which case, you're way off base with me. Again, if it was directed at me personally, kind of hard for me to tell.)

From Another Article: Though above the threshold for a full recount, St. Lucie County agreed late Saturday to recount early votes on Sunday. Barring a sizeable shift, the complete but unofficial numbers showed Murphy with 50.4 percent of the vote and held a 2,442-vote lead in the District 18 race. Still, West's campaign said they would press forward.

I don't see a problem with having a recount. He may not be entitled to an automatic recount under the law, but if his campaign wants to pay for one, I don't see the problem. There have obviously been a number of issues in Florida voting this election, and its important to be sure. The odd thing is that contentions seem to have to to based on today's unofficial tally even when more overseas/expat ballots are coming in. It would make more sense for any challenges to have be based on a deadline total, and then be recounted before certification. There is still a lame duck session to do--and plenty of time for the votes to be certified. Its worth it to make sure there are as few reasons as possible for Rep. West's campaign to claim unfair treatment.

2. His opponent declared victory on Wednesday morning when it became clear West wouldn't concede.
3. The opponent won with 50.4% of the vote, and it is outside the margin that requires a recount.

You wont get a response from randomthreadshiatter, but my understanding of how the right wing brain works (if you can call it working), is that they think that minorities are the real racists, because they vote for people with their own skin color, rather than based on issues. They then ignore the fact that they themselves just made a blatantly racists statement about minorities, while providing no evidence for their own viewpoint. See, for example, Bill O'Reilly, Romney Campaign Chair John Sununu, GOP Rep Andre Carson. So not only is re-electing the first black President NOT evidence of a lack of racism among Democrats, it's actually EVIDENCE of racism. Because apparently only white people vote based on issues.

But don't you dare call them racist. YOU'RE the racists!

I didn't want to play this card, but you DID call yourself a fiscal conservative. These days, that is at least as likely to mean "ideologically opposed to the welfare state" than "desirous of achieving legitimate democratically determined goals via fiscally responsible means." If you're in the first category, then I feel the moniker "right-wing" fairly applies. If you're in the second category, then why bother calling yourself conservative?

Now, whether or not that's based on a correct inference of your intent from using the phrase "Democrat Party," is a slightly different question. I will say though, that even if you used the term innocently (when I started college, I embarrassed myself when I didn't realize it was impolite to refer to Asian people as "oriental," so I can forgive), but I will say that the fact that you regard "Democrat Party" as normal does suggest you've interacted heavily with right-wing circles. I don't think I ever heard the term before I heard Tom DeLay using it in the late 90's or early 2000s.

These days, that is at least as likely to mean "ideologically opposed to the welfare state" than as "desirous of achieving legitimate democratically determined goals via fiscally responsible means." If you're in the first category, then I feel the moniker "right-wing" fairly applies. If you're in the second category, then why bother calling yourself conservative?

Somacandra: Jim_Callahan: It's a bit silly grammatically, but the part of speech on Democratic isn't quite right for a title either, more a remnant of the party being called Democratic Republican back in the 1800s

No, its the official legal name and title of the party--end of story. All else is dildo bullshiat. Its not named the Republic Party, its the Republican Party. Its not the Greenish Party--its the Green Party. Its not the Constitutional Party, its the Constitution Party. Its not the Liberty Party, its the Libertarian Party. Its not the Democrat Party, its the Democratic Party. Use common sense. Don't be F'in stupid.


Ah, see. This is what I just never seemed to know before. Now I think I'll go read why the Democratic Party and Republican Party chose their names. Doesn't seem to have the same... adversarial? nature that Federalist and Anti-Federalist did. Seeing as we're a Constitutional Republic, I wonder if that factored into the decision for the names?

bugontherug: Loaded Six String: You take offense to my dogwhistle term used in ignorance, I take offense to being lumped in with authoritarian theocrats when my personal political views diverge in many ways. Tomato, tomahto. I do like the conversation though.

I didn't want to play this card, but you DID call yourself a fiscal conservative. These days, that is at least as likely to mean "ideologically opposed to the welfare state" than "desirous of achieving legitimate democratically determined goals via fiscally responsible means." If you're in the first category, then I feel the moniker "right-wing" fairly applies. If you're in the second category, then why bother calling yourself conservative?

Now, whether or not that's based on a correct inference of your intent from using the phrase "Democrat Party," is a slightly different question. I will say though, that even if you used the term innocently (when I started college, I embarrassed myself when I didn't realize it was impolite to refer to Asian people as "oriental," so I can forgive), but I will say that the fact that you regard "Democrat Party" as normal does suggest you've interacted heavily with right-wing circles. I don't think I ever heard the term before I heard Tom DeLay using it in the late 90's or early 2000s.


Ah, I see now. Much like the inappropriate usage of Oriental, I admit that my usage of Democrat rather than Democratic was probably due to social influences. My father is a registered Republican but I know his logical brain fights against the derp, so I'm not terribly worried about him. That's probably where I picked the term up.

As for why I identify with the term conservative, it comes down to the separation of fiscal and social policy as you stated. I am concerned with bureaucratic bloat and expanding federal powers. I do recognize the definite benefit of social policies which contribute to a better standard of living, but I'm not content with policies for the sake of legislation. To put it another way, if a benefit can't be shown within say 5 years of a program being implemented, it needs to be scaled down or removed to save costs.

A quick rundown on some things I deem important to me politically: The Patriot Act is terribad and needs to go. The war on Drugs is a tremendous waste and needs to be scaled back drastically or removed. While I'm not fond of a federal government with broad power given our system of government, laws regarding firearms should probably be preempted by the federal government at this point due to too many states, cities, and counties regarding themselves as fiefdoms with regards to regulation. The caveat being that Constitutional precedent has already been set, regardless of the grammatical whinging over the militia clause. I think each candidate for national office should be supplied a set amount of campaign funds once they've garnered the nomination, with the leftover returning to government coffers. I'm not pleased with the influence money has on our legislative process at all, but I'm currently at a loss as to what can be done to curb lobbying for all the good and evil it does.
I think a stand needs to be made over religious institutions attempting to influence legislation. All marriage licenses should be civil union licenses, and the term marriage can be used specifically for religious ceremonies. There just isn't a rational reason not to award the same benefits and privileges and responsibilities to same sex couples as heterosexual couples. Either that or get rid of those benefits, privileges, and responsibilities for heterosexual couples. I'm tired of all the whargarble surrounding that issue. The best way to reduce the number of non medically necessary abortions is proper sex education (abstinence is prohibition, and prohibition doesn't work) coupled with easily procured birth control and contraceptives. If a reversible male birth control were ever developed, I would highly recommend it be administered to all males at the age of 13 and be reversible on request from age 18 onward on a system similar to shall issue concealed weapons licenses, but with no requirements or paperwork or fees. Go to your local hospital, say the word, and *bang* you're not shooting blanks anymore. I'm sure there's more, but this is tl;dr anyway.

In Texas, the Tea Party "favorite, darling, biatch" was behind by 9000 votes in a congressional election. He claimed voter fraud and demanded a recount. That race had over 100,000 votes for each candidate.

These guys have 63,000 each. Looks like half as many care to vote in Florida for either candidate.

Seems like the fat cats over at the Tea Party may or may not bankroll a recount and the handlers won't tell the candidate until he gets in the recount game.

Improperly using the noun 'democrat' instead of the adjective 'democratic' is not an accidental grammatical error. It's an intentional slur. It's meant to be derogatory. It's slang meant to be offensive. And not always, but more often than not, the user either is a teabagger or supports teabagger positions.

When the school that they insist teach Bible instead of science also (just coincicentally, of course) fails to teach their kids basic intellectual skills, that's "Obama" too.

Loaded Six String: bugontherug: Loaded Six String: Does this apply to socially liberal, fiscal conservatives in your experience as well? I only ask because I don't use the term Democratic party, yet I'm not a raging right-wing asshole. Could just be me I suppose.

1) you are gramatically incorrect if you use the phrase "Democrat Party." Not because of anything to do with whether it's an adjective or whatever. But because it's a proper name. The proper name is the Democratic Party.

2) the phrase became popular on the right for the "rat" emphasis. With that in mind, you should be aware when you say it that not only are you gramatically wrong, but you are using a term conceived to be insulting.

3) so, now you know the grammar and history of this epithet and if you continue to use it, then yes, you are a right-wing asshole.

I attribute it to vocal laziness I suppose, though I must admit I have been a bit curious as of late as to why one political party named itself to promote democracy, whereas the other named itself to promote a republic (correct?). Just seems a bit odd to me. Thank you for the history lesson, but I want to point out that by using this incredibly slight terminology faux pas to pigeon hole me into a group of the "others" to make it easier for you to deride me is intellectually lazy. If you wish to heap scorn on someone (whether it was directed at me personally or just a generalization) you should probably find something with a bit more meat to it, especially when your derision is based on a supposition of their political views (in which case, you're way off base with me. Again, if it was directed at me personally, kind of hard for me to tell.)


Karl Rove is on record saying that using "The Democrat Party" rather than "The Democratic Party" is one way he used to discredit and demean the Democrats. If you use this term, you are buying into that political asswit's slur. If you do that, people will continue to assume you're a Republican or at the least one that gets his information only from Fox News.

antidisestablishmentarianism: When someone uses Democrat when they should be using Democratic, you can dismiss anything else they have to say.


I agree. I stop reading or listening at that point.

randomjsa: Ah yes, the left celebrates the destruction of another minority, but remember kids... It's the right who are the racists.

Seems like I remember hearing this same drum beat of how the Republican party and/or Conservatives were a done deal in 2009.

Are you sure this time?


So, just so we're clear...to celebrate the defeat of a minority in an election is racist? Are you sure that's the road you want to go down? Who did you vote for President again?

He won't. He'll be a Fox News Contributor alongside fellow loser Palin.

quatchi: If the right weren't racist they would have a lot more people of color in their tent.


Perhaps they would, if the left didn't call them sellouts, house negros, traitors, and uncle Toms. Perhaps more women would be in line with the GOP's message if the left didn't call them sluts, whores, wish for their rape or blame the victim every time a woman has an accusation of assault against a Democrat.

The results are not close enough to prompt a recount.

Dr.Mxyzptlk. He should call Senator Al Franklin he'll show West how to produce those missing votes.

Is that Ben Franklin's brother?

JadedRaverLA: Weaver95: AcneVulgaris: Weaver95: WorldCitizen: Americans voting out more unintelligent wingnuts like this would do amazing things for the future of this country.

they won't go easy tho.

That's fine. I find their wailing and screeching entertaining.

all that crying and blubbering gets tiresome after a while. you'd figure that a bunch of ayn randian John Galt style supermen wouldn't be such whiny crybabies but...there you go.

Actually if you've read Ayn Rand or know her life story, you'd expect her adherents to be nothing but whiny crybabies with a superhero complex.


Somebody else did this to meeehheheheeee.....

/Can we get a vote button for "Moran" posts?

In the '08 campaign, Republican Sen. Norm Coleman was running for re-election against Democrat Al Franken. It was impossibly close; on the morning after the election, after 2.9 million people had voted, Coleman led Franken by 725 votes.

Franken and his Democratic allies dispatched an army of lawyers to challenge the results. After the first canvass, Coleman's lead was down to 206 votes. That was followed by months of wrangling and litigation. In the end, Franken was declared the winner by 312 votes. He was sworn into office in July 2009, eight months after the election.

During the controversy a conservative group called Minnesota Majority began to look into claims of voter fraud. Comparing criminal records with voting rolls, the group identified 1,099 felons -- all ineligible to vote -- who had voted in the Franken-Coleman race.

Minnesota Majority took the information to prosecutors across the state, many of whom showed no interest in pursuing it. But Minnesota law requires authorities to investigate such leads. And so far, Fund and von Spakovsky report, 177 people have been convicted -- not just accused, but convicted -- of voting fraudulently in the Senate race.


Derp- Derp it don't count..derp- derp

C'mon randomjsa. Don't go down the race-baiting tokenism route. Don't destroy every single last reason for anyone to discourse with you.


Was there ever a first reason?

Those numbers have been inflated, try 180 investigated and 28 had charges brought against them.

Al Franken Hype

Also, what does this really have to do with Al Franken? Voting is anonymous, they could be mostly Coleman supporters for all we know (probably a mixture of both), and it doesn't matter anyway since none of this was organized by either campaign. The reason why felons voted probably stems from not even knowing that their voting rights were taken away. Honestly, I think every citizen should have the right to vote anyway, criminal record or not.

On another note, even if Minnesota Majority's report was accurate which it's not, it doesn't boost their case for voter ID which they've been pushing. Ex-cons don't have a special ID which separates them from anyone else, they could just as well as have voted whether voter ID laws were implemented or not.

Generation_D: Loaded Six String: bugontherug: Loaded Six String: Does this apply to socially liberal, fiscal conservatives in your experience as well? I only ask because I don't use the term Democratic party, yet I'm not a raging right-wing asshole. Could just be me I suppose.

1) you are gramatically incorrect if you use the phrase "Democrat Party." Not because of anything to do with whether it's an adjective or whatever. But because it's a proper name. The proper name is the Democratic Party.

2) the phrase became popular on the right for the "rat" emphasis. With that in mind, you should be aware when you say it that not only are you gramatically wrong, but you are using a term conceived to be insulting.

3) so, now you know the grammar and history of this epithet and if you continue to use it, then yes, you are a right-wing asshole.

I attribute it to vocal laziness I suppose, though I must admit I have been a bit curious as of late as to why one political party named itself to promote democracy, whereas the other named itself to promote a republic (correct?). Just seems a bit odd to me. Thank you for the history lesson, but I want to point out that by using this incredibly slight terminology faux pas to pigeon hole me into a group of the "others" to make it easier for you to deride me is intellectually lazy. If you wish to heap scorn on someone (whether it was directed at me personally or just a generalization) you should probably find something with a bit more meat to it, especially when your derision is based on a supposition of their political views (in which case, you're way off base with me. Again, if it was directed at me personally, kind of hard for me to tell.)

Karl Rove is on record saying that using "The Democrat Party" rather than "The Democratic Party" is one way he used to discredit and demean the Democrats. If you use this term, you are buying into that political asswit's slur. If you do that, people will continue to assume you're a Republican or at the least ...


And I've since acknowledged my mistake and will attempt to do better. I recognize that the Republican Party is ill and and don't wish to be associated with them, as too many of their social platforms are frankly despicable in my opinion.

Ed Finnerty: 47 is the new 42: antidisestablishmentarianism: When someone uses Democrat when they should be using Democratic, you can dismiss anything else they have to say.

I also say that until they stop using Democrat when they should be using Democratic, we should use Republi-con Party, as in "the party that cons the people of the republic of the United States of America."

I like "Rapeublican" myself.


I see why, but that seems harder to pronounce.

That the Left treats you as a pariah if you happen to be a minority who chooses to be conservative? That is pretty much fact. You can accept or deny it all you want
