Epic


Not quite as good as Kirk Gibson’s walk-off home run in Game 1 of the ’88 series, but it was close. Texas had the Cards down to their last strike in the 9th and 10th but couldn’t close the deal.

Then David Freese led of the bottom of the 11th with the game winner.

The series is tied 3-3. Game 7 tonight is for all the marbles.

    Use this as an open thread. I’ll post some more stuff later.

    Until then, keep the noise down and no spitting on the floor.

    Palin’s endorsement is worth 5 Bidens
    October 27, 2011 by Don Surber

    Joe Biden may have defeated her for the vice presidency in 2008, but Sarah Palin has more clout. An endorsement by her is worth 5 times what an endorsement by him is worth. In fact, an endorsement by Sarah Palin is worth as much as an endorsement by Bill Clinton among voters.

    Rasmussen asked likely voters: “Suppose a politician came to your state and endorsed a candidate. Which of these politicians would make you most likely to vote for the candidate they endorsed?”

    Topping the poll, naturally, was President Barack Obama at 24%, followed surprisingly by former President George W. Bush at 19%. I guess I am not alone in missing him.

    In a tie for third-place were former Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin and former President Bill Clinton at 11% each.

    In last place were Vice President Joe Biden and former Vice President Al Gore at 2% each. Dick Cheney was not on the list of choices, but Chris Christie and Mike Huckabee were and they received 8% and 7%, respectively.

    Overall, the Republicans got 45%, the Democrats 39%.

    Democrats can take heart: Rasmussen reported only 2% say endorsements count in the voting booth.

    However, if true, why did so many people answer the question?

    I was reading this blog post on TNA and wondering if we should start a Write-In a Woman campaign for 2012.

    My idea: if you are registered Dem, write in Hillary in the primary.
    If you are registered GOP and don’t like any of the candidates, write in Sarah.

      I can’t write anybody in in my state. I suppose I could try to go caucus for Hillary or Sarah. At least it would make a statement.

      • yttik says:

        Here, see, they saw us coming:

        “Washington became the first U.S. state to suspend its 2012 presidential primary election on Thursday, a move signed into law by Governor Christine Gregoire to save some $10 million from the state budget.”

        However, we can still petition the two parties and try to caucus for a candidate. Unfortunately the Dem powers in my state have made it clear they will be nominating Obama. But the Republicans are not so domineering. In the last election, this state damn near revolted and went for Ron Paul. A couple of Republican candidates tried to sue us because they were so annoyed : )

        • votermom says:

          I would expect both parties to ignore it, but would it be worth it for the media coverage of an otherwise booring primary and the possible new alignment for a 3rd party?
