Oh, no.  If you want this thread closed, we're going to have to do a much better job of being nasty, hostile, and abusive to each other in our postings.  But then, why bother?  It's presidential election season here in the US!  There will be plenty of that going around. LOL



You suck. TongueWink

LOL

Here's a fun US presidential election factoid:
"

What If the Electoral College is Tied?

Many people have asked: "What happens if the electoral college is tied at 269-269?" For example, look at the map of Aug. 24. If it ends up like this and McCain wins Virginia, the final result is 269-269. What next?

If no candidate for President receives 270 electoral votes (either due to a 269-269 tie or a third-party candidate has won a few electoral votes), the newly elected House chooses the President, with each state having one vote...

...However, all this assumes that all representatives vote the party line. But consider Stephanie Herseth Sandlin (D-SD) and Earl Pomeroy (D-ND). The Republicans carried both states by over 20 points in 2004 and 2000 and probably will again. What will they do? Pomeroy is 56 and his been in Congress for 8 terms, so he qualifies as a senior guy who won't be pushed around easily. Herseth Sandlin is only 37 and this is only her second term. Furthermore, she knows very well that she got her job because many voters fondly remember that her grandfather was once governor. There will be immense pressure on the poor woman to vote the way her state did. If both of them vote for McCain, he becomes President. If they split and it becomes 25-25, then the House will unable to elect a President. In that case the Vice President elected by the Senate (with each state having two votes, one per senator) acts as President. The Democrats are likely to hold a minimum of 55 seats in the new Senate, so in that case Joe Biden would become acting President. This scenario would also mean that if Pomeroy votes for McCain, then Herseth Sandlin could make McCain President or Biden President depending on her vote. Ditto Pomeroy if Herseth Sandlin votes for McCain. And by the way, Rep. Mike Castle (R) is the sole representative from heavily Democratic Delaware, a fact Joe Biden will surely bring up if it gets this far. The whole thing could make 2000 look like a clean-cut victory."

^ I'm only afraid these days due to the nature of our politics. Our elected officials have forgotten that they are there to serve the people and not special interests.

We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the foe, that' all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they all flown in the next war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
No, no!

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
For I know that the hypnotized never lie

Do ya?

There's nothing in the street
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Is now the parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!


Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

Just noticed that today is respect for the aged day in Japan.  So for the rest of the day I will not refer to McCain as gramps.

If 200 million voters are counted on a direct basis this risk is practically zero. In case of a tie, then the eldest will win and if both were born the same day, the one with the eldest mother and so on... very simple.

McMummy has no japanese blood that I know of so I guess you can call it what you like... specially since the "other side" never takes days off calling Obama or any liberal all kind of things....
 
Liberals are pussies. While republican media like Fox News is completely dedicated to its cause, liberals tends to want to show the two sides of the coin. Yes, that's what good media is all about. Sadly, when one side has combat horses and the other one doesn't... we have 8 (and now prospective 12) years of the same atrocity....
