    Nevada. Another state that perry will win. Amnesty has its perks.

  3. Cory says:

    Romney doesn’t do better with Indies and Dems because he’s liberal.

    Indies and Dems can at least see a President when they watch Romney, but not when they watch Perry.

    Cory, since you are neither a Democrat nor an Independent, I’m not sure that you can speak for them.

    Marv – I agree. Perhaps one of General Sherman’s descendants can roll again. Please try to put up a fight this time.

    SUSY – I think you are a woman of strong beliefs. No shame in that. I don’t have the energy to be pissed off all the time.

  6. addisonst says:

    Yes Kommie Kory endorses Romney. Kommie Kory it would be fair to say you saw a president when the incompetent manchild said we are the people we’ve been waiting for. Is that correct? How’s the ocean recession going? Was that presidential?

  7. Cory says:

    Actually, all I’ve done so far is endorse Perry in the primary. Who knows who I’ll endorse in the general…

  8. addisonst says:

    Who was the last gop winner that appealed to mods and dems btw? Ford was seen as the last chance to save reagan from defeat. “Mods” who lost. Ford, bush 1, dole, mccain. Mods who won. Ike and bush 1 when he ran like reagan ( a lie) so in 70 years we’ve had ike and maybe bush 1. Nixon might have not been conservative but he didn’t run as a moderate.

  9. addisonst says:

    Kommie Kory endorses romney in the primary. That is consistent w Jason wanting him.

    Vote for Mitt1 canadian commies prefer him over perry 100 to zero

  10. Bitterlaw says:

    Where is MD? He wouldn’t leave without saying goodbye.

  11. addisonst says:

    Howard does kommie kory’s romney endorsement influenence your thinking.

  12. Tim V says:


    Shame on you for mischaracterizing Suzy’s position and then using it as a strawman to puff your own views.Some people do care more about things besides money and punishing criminals. Things like morality and yes religion.Character matters. How honest is the candidate ? Does his life reflect respect for his wife and children ? How ethical will he be ? Does he have a heart for service or is he greedy for gain ? These issues may not matter to you but please spare me your sancrimonious attitude that taxes and spending are all that matters.

  13. SUSYQUE says:

    This is a truism: Men have a better
    sense of humor than women do.

    Time to set the coffee pot for tomorrow morning!

  14. addisonst says:

    Tim V you vote on how a candidate treats his wife and children? Seriously. There’s a current potus who appears to be monogomous and a decent father. I’d rather have Newt.

  15. Bitterlaw says:

    Tim V – why do you assume that moral issues do not matter tome? They do. However, this is not a Synod and we are not hiring a Minister. While I would prefer an ideal candidate, it matters more to me to know that he or she will give the order that kills America’s enemies than he will lead a prayer rally. I question nobody for placingreligion at the center of their lives but I will not rank that first (or in the top 10) issues that matter to me when voting.

    I doubt that truly religious people would want to be politicians. I used to work with a very religious man. He was a deacon in his church. He told me that he always voted but never voted based on God’s will.

    By the way, Saved Tim, you are incorrect in using the word sanctimonious. I believe that you meant secular.

  16. addisonst says:

    And Tim V. Taxes and spending are all that matters. That’s why I’m voting for perry. He’s better than romney on both. And if he’s intimate w a goat I’m still voting foer him over romney.

    Is that supposed to be funny? I don’t get it.

  18. Marv says:

    I long for the days when our nominee would be decided in a smoke filled room over a few Cognacs and some good old fashioned political deal making (bribes)…..Oh, those were the days.

  19. Bitterlaw says:

    But add – Romney has more children than Perry. More children and his wife loves him.

  20. Howard Dean says:

    Comment by addisonst — September 19, 2011 @ 10:25 pm

    Not in the least.

  21. Bitterlaw says:

    I hope Tim V didn’t vote for that divorced guy with the children who went out of their way to embarass him in public. I think he ran against a President from Georgia who was a pretty relgious guy – (apparently he did a lot of charity work after the divorced dude beat him).

  22. addisonst says:

    My experience has been the more religious the person the bigger the deviant. That’s why we have so many evangelicals and priests with little boys and big boys, wide stances and nevada senators. Bin ladens and jim bakkers.

  23. Jerry Cruncher says:

    Taylor-Fladgate ’42 Marv

  24. Bitterlaw says:

    Add – you forgot the Cantor near Philadelphia who molested and killed a boy. Don’t forget that guy.

  25. addisonst says:

    bitter, I think that clery use their position as a carbon offset if you will. Thus we have huge numbers of priests molesting children and the vatican overlooks it. Indulgences. I find that the more repressed seem to find wide stances more often. What better way to be a deviant than to be a man of the cloth?

  26. addisonst says:

    Missed that one bitter. For the most part Jewish clergy stick to run of the mill adultery. But Judaism isn’t in your face on morality the way catholics and evangelicals are.

  27. Bitterlaw says:

    Add – you go too far. We do not have huge numbers of priests We have too many priests doing it (i would be too many) but please do not act like my wife’s Jewish relatives who assume every priest molests children. One of them was really nasty to me about how hypocritical Catholics are they are all immoral. Considering that almost everybody in his family over the age of 40 cheated on their spouse and got divorces, I suggested he worry about his own tribe.

  28. SUSYQUE says:

    Bitterlaw….setting the coffee pot so it will be ready
    when we wake up in the morning.

  29. Bitterlaw says:

    You are not quite right about Catholics. We focus more on sin than Hell. Now, if you want to hear about goingto Hell, you magnificent jew bastard, talk to Tim V.

  30. Bitterlaw says:

    Comment by SUSYQUE — September 19, 2011 @ 11:01 pm

    Still not getting the joke.*

    *just kidding.

  31. Kristen says:

    Do you think there is a connection between a person’s moral/religious views and political views?

    WHy are most stridently secular voters Democrats, and most saliently religious voters Republican (with the exception of blacks, mostly)?

    Is it possible for a religious person to separate his faith from the rest of his thinking, and if not, shouldn’t we query candidates about their deepest values and beliefs, religious or not?

    Discuss. I have to go.

  32. addisonst says:

    Bitter, I think the cover up by the vatican is one of the greatest scandals of all time.

  33. Bitterlaw says:

    Kristen – I prefer cndidates who have faith because I do as well. However, I am not comfortable with politicicians leading prayer rallies because it cheapens the prayers. I also would oppose teachers leading prayer in public schools – not because I oppose prayer but because I would not trust people who already screw up history and other subjects to teach about God.

  34. Bitterlaw says:

    Add- you’re right. If they ever elect the Pope, I will send you an absentee ballot. For the record, I think that any priest who molests a child should be beheaded at the altar. Regular people should be hanged in public.

  35. addisonst says:

    Kristen, I elect a person to do myu secular bidding. One of my beefs with perry is he can’t shut his mouth about his religious beliefs. I’m more tolerant about that than most Jews but I don’t think its appropriate or relevant. I don’t hire a plumber, or an accountant based on their religious beliefs. Why would I hire a president on that?

  36. Ac1 says:

    Once again we as a party we will take the angle, buck, cod route because we will never learn.

  37. Marv says:

    #37 Ac1

    Angle was cheated by the Mafia/casino unions, Buck would have won had he kept his mouth shut about rape, and O’Donnell was victimized by that damnable liberal DE and eastern PA media. Everyone knows that!

  38. Bitterlaw says:

    There have been no credible allegations of witchcraft againt Perry or Romney.

  39. Jerry Cruncher says:

    Redbirds baby! 2.5 games out of wildcard. I remember ’06.

  40. Bitterlaw says:

    JC – as a Phillies fan, I’m fine with losing to the Cards. The phillies get to rest and the Braves get to choke.

  41. Bitterlaw says:

    Thanks to the Cubs, Phillies have home field advantage as long as they are in the playoffs. (Shhhhhh. Baseball Gods hear all).

  42. addisonst says:

    Bitter I don’t want a pope vote but I do want a pope on a rope soap. Pope John Paul was an amazing person but the scandal tarnishes his life.

  43. SoThisIsHopeAndChange? says:

    A priest, a rabbi, and a minister walk past a boy. The Priest says lets screw him, the rabbi says out of what?

    I am only joking about the stereotypes. A priest has just as much chanse of being a pediphile as a protestant minister, and a rabbi is no more greedy than a protestant televangelist. There are hypocrites and sinners in every faith.

  44. Bitterlaw says:

    Hope – and Jews and Italians tend to have big noses. Well. Pre-surgery.

  45. SoThisIsHopeAndChange? says:

    Bitter, you might be glad to hear, I am slowly warming up to Romney…solely based on poll numbers.

    It’s like I can see myself prefering him being nominated, as long as I don’t have to make it happen.

    Kind of like having deniability…Well when it gets to NC, it will be over anyways, I guess.

  46. SoThisIsHopeAndChange? says:

    I am afriend Perry is being Palinized…by Romney.

    If he didn’t do it, Obama would in the GE.

    I want to see atleast a tie in a Perry vs Obama poll.

  47. SoThisIsHopeAndChange? says:


  48. lisab says:

    perry is typically doing about 5 pts worse than romney against obama.

    these states were all within 5 pts

    Missouri 0.14%
    North Carolina 0.32%
    Indiana 1.04%
    Nebraska’s 2nd congressional district 1.19%
    Montana 2.25%
    Florida 2.82%
    Ohio 4.59%

  49. Diogenes says:

    Palinize Perry? Perry is more accurately like Bush, not Palin. And if anyone is Bush-izing Perry it’s perry himself who walks and talks like our former president.

    I think Bush was an ok president but I don’t think we want to tread there again.

  50. Kristen says:

    Sleepless again.

  51. Tim V says:

    bitter, sorry for the rant, I blame the bipolar.

  52. Kristen says:


    From a liberal CO blog … “There was and is a lot of debate over what is a “competitive” district. I will use my own yardstick in this regard and I differentiate between leaning D, leaning R, and very competitive. My process is use an average of the D & R votes for Treasurer and for CU Regent in 2010. If the result is +/- 5% of 50-50 that is leaning and if it is +/- 2% of 50-50, that is very competitive.”

    Using this standard the SD map has:
    14 Safe R seats
    3 Leaning R seats
    9 Safe D seats
    4 Leaning D Seats
    5 Very Competitive Very Competitive

    And the HD map has:
    23 Safe R seats
    4 Leaning R seats
    15 Safe D seats
    9 Leaning D seats
    14 Very Competitive seats

  53. SoThisIsHopeAndChange? says:

    when the top 1% generate 20% of the income and pay 40% of the taxes in this country, what exactly is their fair share?

  54. mnw says:

    Very encouraging NV SEN poll. UE rate in NV is 13.4%, so maybe zero won’t help Berkeley much?

  55. SoThisIsHopeAndChange? says:

    maybe NV wont help zero so much…
