Who cares? 

Also, I am not a Democrat.  I would never want to be a member of either crappy party.   

Remember, I am only here to remind everyone that Trump is a pile of ****. He was a pile of **** as a Democrat too.   

No no, you don't understand. stanpapi opposes you, so you must be de facto a Democrat. Fait accompli. Own that. ;)

People are addicted to the dopamine hits from "pwning" each other.

As I’ve tried to say before, (and here it is straight from the horse’s mouth), you are all allowing Stan to waste pages playing you.

 I can’t quite figure out why any of us here won’t/don’t just pass by his entries without responding.

 

Because it's fun to watch him get self owned every day.

Realize you're playing the game by his rules and giving him exactly what he wants.

I do not think Stan is totally playing games with us.  He has been at MTS a long time and I don't believe he is that clever.  Sometimes he does play games.  Other times, I think he is legitimately frustrated that people disrespect his hero so much.

We're all smart enough to know that any politician is going to be disrespected by people.  Individuals who disrespected Obama who are puzzled why people disrespect Trump are either tone deaf, not as smart as we may think, or trolling.

He has been around MTS for a while and  I think you are giving Stan too much credit.  He is not Ballmich.

Fascinating numbers.

You don't often get to look under the hood in non-competitive states... one has to think that the one Omaha EC vote is in play in 2020.

With a decent chance it will be an important one.  The EC will be very close.

If they lose Texas, it won't be close at all.

Otherwise... I still don't think it'll be very close... Dems getting 310 +/- EC's... Early guess.

A loss in Texas equals a blowout for the Dem nominee.

The popular vote isn't distributed evenly enough for the Dem nominee to win with 300+ EC votes.  This will be a squeaker, with Trump losing the popular vote by millions regardless of victor.

Think it's safe to say that Pete's caught up to the field in IA/NH....

Pete remains my preferred candidate.  Whether or not he has the total package to win on a national level is a different question.

Personally, I don't think a gay candidate can win the POTUS right now.  Sexual orientation shouldn't matter, but our puritan roots dig deep.

I doubted a black guy could win in 2008 - no way was the country going to accept that

I can't wait for the evangelicans to tell us that we can't support the immorality of a gay man while pulling the lever for a guy with 5 kids by 3 wives who paid off a porn star to keep quiet about an affair he had while his youngest son was still a newborn..

The same holds for the other candidates (Warren/Sanders), but in particular with Pete, if he wants any chance past IA/NH, he's going to need to break through with AA/Hispanic voters.

I think he can, but he needs to start spending some of that cheddar that his campaign is sitting on to start and trying to introduce himself to folks in places like SC or GA or TX.

If I was Chris Taylor in Ann Arbor I'd consider filing to run right now for President. Same is true if I were Kenson Siver in Southfield, Jack O'Rilley in Dearborn, Bill Wild in Westland, and Maureen Brosnon in Livonia. If being the Mayor of a city of 100,000 people and speaking a few languages now qualifies you for President, all of the people above fit or come close to fitting that bill. I said that above with semi-sarcasm, so seriously, I'll vote and work my *** off for Pete if he's the nominee, but I don't quite get the hype.

Also, why did Kamala Harris get politically criticized for trying to reboot her campaign and change with the shifting political winds but the same critique has not been levied on Pete for drifting to the center?

Oh, Jesus, if she seriously follows through on "never, never, never say never", I'm going to start wondering if she's with the Russians, too.
