  • comment on a post Evan Bayh should rot in hell over 4 years ago

     I think you'll discover, ultimately, that every one (except 144,000) of all the humans created in the roughly 5000 years since the creation of the Universe will be rotting in Hell. Borrow a Bible and you can read it for yourself. I don't think that Bayh will get there because of his politics, however. It'll probably be for something more mundane, like covetting, or eating lobster. I worked on Saturdays and Sundays for years, so I know I'm screwed regardless of which day is the true Sabbath. By suggesting that Bayh be physically harmed, you too are going to rot along with me and the vast majority of humanity. Sorry for the bad news.

  • This, from someone who sees sexism in a nose scratch. Give me a break.

  • on a comment on AR-Sen: The state of play over 4 years ago

    Have you visited Arkansas? It's a true Southern backwater. Less than 3,000,000 human inhabitants. In 2008, John McCain defeated Barack Obama by 20 points. Blanche Lincoln is, from the Arkansas perspective, a godless communist... and worse.

    Halter, if miraculously victorious (twice) will inherit the derision of all who hate the blue dog Democrats.

    Unfortunately!

     

     

  • Can't argue with that. 

  • Really

  • Fair enough. Everybody takes cheap shots, and everybody deserves them. You accurately predict, imho, that if Halter makes it to the Senate Obama will be pleased, almost certainly (imo) more pleased than if Blanche came back. So would I. If Halter wins the runoff and loses the general, we'll be down a Senator. If Blanche does it, ditto. I hope we'll all be unhappy if a Republican replaces her. 

    But unfortunately I don't have a say in the matter. I just want the vote to be fair. And I want a large turnout everywhere, unlike the diarist.

  •  I'm not a fan of Blanche, but I am a fan of Democrats, even if they come from Arkansas and end up in the Senate. I don't subscribe to the theory that it is better to unseat a "right wing" "moderate" Democrat in the Primary and subsequently lose in the General Election. If Halter wins a runoff, he better win the General. If he doesn't as a result of being too Progressive for the Arkansan electorate, then working to get him on the ballot will have had the same effect as helping to elect a Republican Senator. In other words, it would prove to be unfortunate, ultimately, for Democrats to have won a victory in the Primary. I don't know what the voters in Arkansas will decide in November, but I've actually been to Arkansas and I didn't like it at all. 

    I think Halter makes it harder to hold the seat in November, but whatever happens, I just hope the process is fair and let the chips fall where they may.
