IlGreven: ...he does know that PPP was one of the  most accurate polls of the 2012 elections, right?


So then you're admitting they consistently favored democrats.

It seems like there might be a huge market for fake polling. Quick! Set up a shell company, shovel some money in and start cranking out numbers, regardless of whether they make sense or not!

dickfreckle: keylock71: "Come with me... And you'll be... living in a world of pure imagination..."


Ought to be the GOP's theme song...

I would also have accepted "Xanadu."


Attention World!
This is the moment I have decided to become a billionaire then entrench myself into the GOP heirarchy just so I get to arrange the entertainment for a future Republican convention where I will lock the doors, Carrie style, and play the whole of  The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Just. For. The. Lulz.

Don't try and copy my insanely brilliant idea.. I've already invested heavily in tinned peaches and gold.. the rest will be a cakewalk!

Guys like us, we don't pay attention to the polls. We know that polls are just a collection of statistics that reflect what people are thinking in reality. And reality has a well-known liberal bias.

This is pretty consistent with Republican logic. Tell everyone that government can't do anything right, get elected, proceed to sabotage government and do a terrible job, repeat.

Jim_Callahan: MaudlinMutantMollusk: /Pathetic bastards can't win on their ideas because they have none

OK, in all fairness, in both parties there are people with a real interest in serving the public, with coherent and thought-out ideas that, even if you don't agree with them philosophically, at least have some grounding in real issues of meaningful practical priority and goals that are ultimately sympathetic to most people.

In each party there are also a bunch of goddamned morons.

The difference between the GOP and the Dems is less the presence or absence of one or the other group as which group is usually ultimately in charge.  The Dems usually have a layer of idiots backed by a group of competent people pulling the strings.  The GOP's more like a layer of idiots with a few competent people that used to pull the strings holding on for dear life like a man riding a mechanical bull over a spike-filled pit, that's also on fire.

All the ideas in the world won't help you if you can't manage your base, or bargained for more populist power than you can actually control.  You know there's like twenty guys somewhere up the GOP hierarchy that genuinely want to reasonably reduce the influence of the federal government in a responsible fashion that leads to a balanced budget without screwing anyone, and their mental soundtrack for the last decade has just been an uninterrupted litany of profanity.


Hey, they could always simply become even more extremely conservative and jettison the RINOs.  What could possibly go wrong?

I don't think that's fair. They have ideas. They're just stupid ones.
