I am so not motivated to vote in Virginia. I don’t care who wins and I can’t write in Sarah or Hillary
I think Dandy is planning to vote RP … that’s what I heard anyway.
Yep, RP all the way. I love to mess with the system.
I’m not motivated either. We usually go vote and then hang out at the local pub to watch the election returns with the other political junkies. We’ll be at home tonight.
Is anybody liveblogging the returns tonight?
I can’t — don’t know if myiq or crawdad is up to it…
I dunno, I feel like shit right now.
Hope you feel better soon.
Ditto. And no, that’s not a shout-out.
I’m not sure it’s worth the trouble anyway. The two interesting states are Ohio and Tenn. Otherwise, yawn. I think Romney has Ohio, so Tenn is the only one up in the air. Could go to Santorum or Romney. And here’s the fun part, won’t matter either way.
were you at Uppitys pahhhty?
OT: not sure if this was posted earlier.

The latest fad is knitting things that actors and actresses have worn on TV or in the movies. It started with Harry Potter, moved on to the Twilight series, and the latest is knitted fashions from “Once Upon a Time”. I’m not sure Santorum’s vest will be able to compete with Bella’s mittens and Emma Swan’s baby afghan.
Found this on facebook, now I know where the local tea party stands, and it’s not with Mitt, oh my…
As you know only Paul and Romney are on the Va. ballot for tomorrows primary. If you support Newt,Santorum or Paul,then get out and vote for Paul tomorrow. If anything it gives the other 3 candidates a better chance no matter who you support,unless its Romney. If you support Romney please reconsider.
And why should they? Their first beef was with health care. Mitt Romney is the perfect foil for Obama. Same brand; different color, like the black and white iPhones. Health care repeal or reform are both lost with either. You want to talk about reverend Wright again? Well, that makes Mormon ritual fair game. Worried about war in Iran? They’re both going, no matter who wins. Economy? Both inept with questionable morals. Both part of the 1%. Both Harvard grads. Both out of touch with women. And the list goes on.
And the favored tool of Team Obama is so easily applied. Racism, Racism, Racism.
VOTE.otherwise you can’t complain. :Lol:
Sure I can. lol No matter whether I go to the polls or not today, Obama, Warren, and Tsongas will be my choices for the Democrats in December. No matter who I vote for today, Romney will win the Republican primary here. If I want to vote for a different Republican in November, I am going to have to rely on people in other states to put him (or her, I could only dream) on my ballot. Scott Brown will be there, with or without me, and since Niki Tsongas is the only woman in the MA delegation, I’m voting for her no matter who is running against her.
How cute…they still think that Dems are united.
An article about Pres Clinton agreeing to do some fundraising for Obama.
The prospect of a meeting with Obama as well as the former president, whose favorability rating was 67 percent in a Pew Research Center poll last year, may entice more donors, especially those who retain some loyalty to Hillary Clinton, who lost to Obama in the 2008 Democratic nomination contest, one of the people said.
Democrats cheered the move and said it signaled a new stage in the campaign.
“Given the volume of Republican super-PAC spending this cycle and its impact on the course of GOP nominating process, President Clinton’s personal support is the most effective starter’s gun we have,”</B said Michael Meehan, a Democratic strategist.
The show of Democratic unity comes as Republicans are in the middle of a protracted primary fight.
“This is still another development that reinforces Obama’s status as the frontrunner heading into the general election,” said Greg Valliere, the chief political strategist at the Potomac Research Group in Washington. “The Democrats are amazingly united, with very little dissent, while the Republicans have ripped themselves apart.”
If they’re so united, then why do they need Bill? /snark
Funny how Obama uses Bill whenever he’s in trouble. He already uses Hillary to blame on any international crisis, unless it goes well (aka: OBL).
It’s Super Tuesday and Obama is running unopposed so he held one of his rare press conferences to suck up some of the attention from the GOP
But back to my point: co-ed. This is an old-fashioned label to stick on a woman, and it shouldn’t be used anymore even to apply to undergraduates. But you just sound ignorant to call a female law student a “co-ed.” And that ignorance continues with this talk of Sandra Fluke not being “a random co-ed.” None of the students at an elite law school like Georgetown are “random.” There’s an elaborate, multi-factored admissions process, and it specifically looks for applicants who aren’t coming straight from college but have taken time and shown engagement with social and political issues.
A “30 year old long time liberal activist” sounds exactly like the kind of person who would apply to law school and get accepted with enthusiasm, because the schools want students who will contribute to the classroom discussions about the things we talk about in law school, like sex discrimination. This is what classroom diversity means. And we want students who will take their law school education and use it different ways, especially in political activism. So what if Fluke “enrolled at Georgetown with the express purpose of fighting for the school to pay for students’ birth control”? I have no idea if that’s why she selected Georgetown, but it’s not a bad thing, it’s not something law schools don’t like, and it’s not an unusual orientation for a law student to have.
McCain also tells us that Fluke has argued that it’s sex discrimination for insurance not to cover “gender-reassignment” surgery. Sorry, this is typical law-journal material. Of course, an advocate in the category she belongs to would make arguments like this. Argue with these arguments all you want. But it doesn’t make Sandra Fluke some nefarious pseudo law student. She sounds like a typical excellent law student at an elite law school.
Which is to say: the personal put-downs sound old-fashioned and sexist.
The right wing stepped in it with Fluke. Having stepped in it, they keep smushing around in it.
As a woman, as a law professor, as a woman law professor, I don’t want to be seen anywhere near these guys. Could you start acting normal about women participating in public debate?
Whoa, there’s quite a firestorm in her comments section.
They keep getting this wrong. It’s not the mothers who stay, it’s the fathers who neglect/abandon their own children who are the problem. And neglect/abandonment is already on the books. All they have to do is enforce it. Throw ‘em in jail and assign them labor to pay off their child support, and then watch how fast that crap stops. Or how fast condom sales soar.
