“Hutchison’s Law: any occurrence requiring undivided attention will be accompanied by a compelling distraction.”
I know 25 people with hybrid cars.
So wth is Joe Coors talking about?
with him recommending “all of the above” is pretty good. Folksy.
I am respectfully requesting that you send ArapaGOP to the penalty box for his incredible rudeness to a guest of your blog.
Mayor Sloan of Golden was gracious enough to come to the site to acknowledge the confusion about POTUSes visiting Jeffco.
And ArapaGOP in this comment basically accused her of lying:
You cover for The One like a pro.

When I started lurking at this site, you sent SXP 151 to the box and it seemed to me it was just for being rude. (SXP was a hoot by the way, doubt ArapaGOP will be as entertaining.)
Perhaps Mayor Sloan is aware of how rude our trolls (well, and us, too) can be. But I thought ArapaGOP was over the top. Again. As usual.
We will never have the elite, smart people on our side -
I think I’m gonna try this at home tonight.
I’m gonna tell my wife, “Honey, I could’ve married an amazingly beautiful woman, but I decided to marry you instead.”
I’ll let you know how it goes as soon as I’m released from the hospital.
“I knew I would never have a smart, beautiful woman by my side — thank God I found you.”
. . . But, then again, Mrs. Demar pretty much hasn’t been speaking to me at all this year anyway. YMMV.
Sen. Lindsay Graham’s “we’re not generating enough angry white guys” comment.
It’s as though the Republican Party has been cursed with a “tell it like it really is” hex.
your edit for the headline sorta COMPLETELY changes the meaning of the quote.
But someone as elite as you, you already knew that.
which side you’re on, Barron . . .
It is maybe kinda unacceptable in a certain way that ClubTwitty’s headlight might have possibly changed the meaning of what Ryan likely said!
I am totally a little outraged and fuming with slight annoyance!
Its what we do. Conspire. If its not taking over the world through local zoning laws (Agenda 21 if you have not been following along) then its little things…like deciding to poke fun at the anti-intellectualism that has seized the GOP. It was established conclusively long ago that reality has a liberal bias.
“they’re the cream of the stupid . . . the pick of the crap, as it were.”
I found this unusual:
“How important is it for the president to be in touch with the average working person?”
Very important 75
Somewhat important 20
“Who is more in touch with the average working person?”
How is it possible for Obama to have an 11 point difference on that question and yet only be 1 point ahead of Romney?
Is this poll an outlier?
Two polls, one puts her up at 2%, the other at 6%.
So, let’s just average them and say 4%. Brown should be worried.
I will, officially, point and laugh.
This is the best year the GOP will have for 6 years to take Democratic seats. Not only are there far more D seats up for re-election, but there are far more vulnerable D seats up.
And yet it looks like they’ll lose Maine, are on their way toward losing Massachusetts, and are working on losing Indiana. The GOP will gain Nebraska (barring live girl/dead boy incident) in return.
The contests they thought would be good pick-ups are looking tough. New Mexico is slipping away if not gone. Missouri – well, Todd Akin didn’t do them any favors there. Wisconsin is moving toward the Dem column with Tammy Baldwin. Michigan is similarly slipping away. Those contests are so far gone, in fact, that the NRSC is moving its money in to South Dakota, which was supposed to be a Republican lock for a pickup, until Stephanie Herseth’s strong campaign turned it into a tie race. Montana is pretty much tied, as is Virginia.
Of the above list, Montana is looking most likely for the GOP, and Rehberg’s only got +1 over Tester (in a very under-polled race) at RCP. Kaine v. Allen in Virginia is pretty much tied, and Herseth holds a +1 lead in SD. Connecticut is looking kind of good for McMahon right now, but I’m guessing CT voters will come home to their Democratic leanings come November.
My current projection: Senate remains at its current 53/49 balance – but the D’s lose Ben Nelson and Joe Lieberman and (Mark Warner or Jon Tester) and pick up the more progressive Chris Murphy, Elizabeth Warren, and Angus King (I-ME).
Have you seen some good polling for her?
One Baldwin campaign internal, and one from PPP (for DFA) show Baldwin up 50-45 and 48-45 respectively. There are three polls in the field this week in Wisconsin, so we’ll have more data points at the end of the week. The dKos polling average has her up by 3.1, so those polls showing her down by lots have probably moved out of the rotation. (They were mostly just after the GOP primary, which gave Thompson a good sized bump.)
Is Tammy a good legislator? I have no clue.
While I greatly admire her sacrifices and stamina, I also see that they may not be her political, pragmatic strengths. Just because she is a wounded vet doesn’t mean she’s a good legislator.
Anyone know anything?
Tammy Baldwin has been a (D) Rep from Wisconsin for some time now. She’s a solid progressive caucus member.
Tammy Duckworth doesn’t have legislative history, but she’s run for office before and has a pretty good set of endorsements from that time. She’s been an assistant secretary for the VA and director of the IL veterans agency.
….dead girl/live boy.
Who said that? I think it was a member of Congress.
The candidate is female. That means we reverse them, right? Or is it the same regardless?
before he got caught with neither but with both hands in the cookie jar
And Heitkamp vs. Berg, not Herseth (who is running for SD-AL). Herseth is running to replace Kent Conrad; RCP has the race at Berg +5, TPM has Heitkamp at +1. (TPM includes a couple of D-NPL party sponsored polls which RCP excludes; not sure if that’s because they’re local polling outfits, or if it’s because of the sponsor.)
TPM also has the Arizona Senate race with former Bush Surgeon General Richard Carmona running only a point behind Rep. Jeff Flake (R-AZ-06) to replace retiring Sen. Kyl. Yet another race Republicans weren’t really thinking they’d need to spend lots of money on.
…Paul Ryan, the Republican presidential nominee’s running mate, says keeping the proposal vague gives it the best chance for passage through Congress.
Like Nancy Pelosi saying you’ve got to pass a bill before you know what is in it? Technically true, but kinda stupid to say it that way.
indicates more of an acknowledgement of the process.
Ryan’s, taken in the best light, indicates that they don’t want to formulate their own proposals because that might “limit” Congressional debate. Of course, given the Romney/Ryan campaign to date, what it really means is we don’t want to give out specifics because it might be politically damaging – just like tax returns. Obama has more specifics in his plans, and he’s got a hostile House to work with.
… because Pelosi was referring to an ACTUAL BILL that had, you know, details and words. I think the context was that how ACA would play out (effectiveness, unintended consequences, implementation, etc.) would have to be seen.
Ryan, in contrast, is part of a campaign saying, we want to run the country but won’t tell you what the fuck we’ll do, except they’ll repeal ACA except not the popular parts, and the Ryan plan is great but don’t assume we’ll do exactly that because parts are unpopular.
lie to you? “
What a horrible piece of legislation, sitting on a shelf awaiting a friendly environment, Pubs and Dems wanting to be able to tell constituents that they were doing SOMEthing.
Something they sure did. Fuck up our lives and the Constitution.
“In November, the presidency could go to the candidate who attracts the most craft-beer drinkers.”
Which means BHO wins.
…..the data and reasoning behind it is hard to argue with.
