    Have you met any real-life Trump supporters?

    I don't know a single person from real life who would vote for Trump. (Obviously, his supporters are unavoidable online.) Maybe this is because of my age, or because I live in a diverse and well-educated area. Granted, most of the people I know are liberal... but I have conservative family...

    WikiLeaks: Cuba banned Sicko for depicting 'mythical' healthcare system

    This is... this is just... wow. WikiLeaks: Cuba banned Sicko for depicting 'mythical' healthcare system | World news | guardian.co.uk Is there anyone who can take that movie - and Michael Moore in general - seriously after this? It was so dishonest in its portrayal of the Cuban health care...

    Rep. Grayson Lowers the Bar

    This has to be the most blatantly dishonest political ad I've ever seen, and that's saying something. Rep. Grayson Lowers the Bar | FactCheck.org Here's Webster's full quote: There's more, too: Grayson has been garnering attention by acting like an adolescent internet troll for some time...

    Nate Silver: GOP has 2-in-3 Chance of Taking House

    G.O.P. Has 2-in-3 Chance of Taking House, Model Forecasts - NYTimes.com I've been waiting for this forecast for quite a while. The result isn't surprising, though tbh I'd expected even better numbers for the GOP. Should be an interesting November.

    Animated Avatars

    Just a minor question, but I'm not sure where else to ask. I've seen several members use animated avatars before, and at least one now. But when I try to use one (a .gif) I go to a screen that says that I may not use animated avatars. So, um, what's up with this?

    This is not good

    Okay, so out of the last 90 hours (that's 3.75 days for those too lazy to do math), I have gotten one full night of sleep (10 hours), plus two naps (2 hours and 3 hours). That one full night of sleep was 48 hours ago, and I've gotten only one nap in since then. I just got out of bed after being...

    Mitch Daniels: 2012 Dark Horse?

    Mitch Daniels is the governor of Indiana, who recently made news for saying that there should be a "truce" on social issues while the focus shifts to solving more pressing fiscal issues. I thought this was pretty obvious (and the entire point of the Tea Party movement), but apparently that's a...

    Sexual Acts Among Top Activities While Driving Says Survey

    FOXNews.com - Sexual Acts Among Top Activities While Driving Says Survey Interesting.... Road head, I guess? But that doesn't explain the 20% more people who have dressed/undressed while driving. Who the hell does that? How? 5% have played video games while driving. I'm thinking maybe an IQ...

    Obama health plan would curb insurers on rate hikes

    Obama health plan would curb insurers on rate hikes - latimes.com Because this worked soooooo well when we did it with oil. Seriously, this is absolutely appalling. Oh hey, what was that about this not being a government take-over?

    Tea Party Contract from America

    Hmm... Contract From America I wonder what Newt Gingrich thinks of this. Obviously it's in response to the criticisms of them not having a platform, and only being against stuff and not for stuff. I think this could potentially end up as big a deal as the last Contract. Apparently it'll be...

    House prediction contest

    Like the Senate prediction contest, except, you know, with the HoR. The President's party usually loses seats in the midterm elections, and 2010 looks to be no exception. The question is, will the GOP get a majority in the House? To do this, they would have to gain at least 40 seats. To put...

    New Virginia Governor to Deliver GOP Response to State of the Union

    FOXNews.com - New Virginia Governor to Deliver GOP Response to State of the Union This is great news. McDonnell's inauguration speech was great, and it had me convinced that he is more of a fiscal conservative than the vast majority of Congress.
