Sunday Overnight Open Thread

I don’t want to talk about any poll that doesn’t have a stripper on it.

The band above is Trick Pony. They broke up. The lead singer was Heidi Newfield. Here she is again, minus the band and with what appears to be a couple “enhancements.”

    Its good to see John McCain barnstorming the country trying to help elect GOP Senate nominees. Hes on a punishing schedule that would kill a man half his age. And to think that 4 years ago, the Obots were afraid that he’d kick the bucket and Palin would be one heartbeat from the Presidency. That was vile fearmongering. I really, really hate the Obots. Its like they’ve stripped all the negative qualities of the GOP, solidified them, and made them their own, thereby making the GOP kinder and gentler.

      Yes it was.
      Every time I see McCain on my tv I think of those vile progs say to myself: JOHN MCCAIN IS STILL ALIVE YOU ASSHOLES!!!

      It makes me feel better.

        He’s still alive and kicking it on the campaign trail. And he is pissed about Benghazi! He’s on Greta saying that vets and service members across the country are telling him they have no confidence in Obama as CIC. In other words, they’re voting Romney.

    It is amazing the cool stuff you can find at Wikipedia:

    Captain Spaulding

    In House of 1000 Corpses, Captain Spaulding was introduced as a vulgar clown and the proprietor of a gas station that doubled as a museum/haunted house ride with a focus on serial killers, madmen and freaks of nature. His main purpose in the first film was to redirect a group of young adults looking for the local legend of “Dr. Satan” to the tree where he was supposedly hanged, where they instead end up running into the murderous Firefly family.

    Rob Zombie described Spaulding on the commentary for House of 1000 Corpses as a “lovable asshole” and wanted to make the character’s motivations ambiguous. It is never fully explained in the movie if Spaulding is in league with the Firefly family or if he is just a murderous vigilante unconnected to the Firefly clan (in the film’s opening scene, he kills two burglars attempting to rob his store). He is described in the script for Corpses as a “crusty looking old man in a filthy clown suit and smeared make-up”. He has the words “LOVE” and “HATE” tattooed on his knuckles, a reference to the character Reverend Harry Powell from Night of the Hunter.

    The second film gave Spaulding a much more significant role, establishing him as the patriarch of the Firefly family. For The Devil’s Rejects, Captain Spaulding’s character was changed slightly; the director wanted him to be less cartoonish in the more realistic and gritty sequel. As such, Spaulding only has his clown makeup on in the beginning of the film.

    In describing Spaulding for his review for The Devil’s Rejects, film critic Roger Ebert wrote “He is a man whose teeth are so bad, they’re more frightening than his clown makeup. He plays such a thoroughly disgusting person, indeed, that I was driven to discover that in real life Sid looks, well, presentable… This was a relief to me, because anyone who really looked like Captain Spaulding would send shoppers screaming from the Wal-Mart.”

    I’ve been looking at the early CO voting (Dems, GOP and Unaffiliated).
    CO appears to be a Romney state. I’m assuming a 50:50 split for unaffiliated voters.

    • Yeah, I think you can consider FL, CO, VA, & NC sewn up. Which means Mitt just has to win one more state or two smaller ones. WI,OH, or IA + New Hampshire would do it for him.

        Saw my two (quite Feminist) sisters yesterday. All of us are registered Dems, and were big Hillary supporters in 08. I was surprised that they have both jumped to Romney. All three of us have, independently, arrived at the same conclusion.

        We are all in Ohio, BTW.

        The Obama canvassers were at my door yesterday. Asking how I would vote. I said “no Obama.” Then they asked for my son. I said “he moved to Indy and is voting for Stein.”

        Ohio will go Romney. I really think that. From my experiences here on the ground. And I will rejoice when I see it happen….

      • Please oh please oh PLEASE let PA be the state! PLEASE! Let us be the ones to “revenge” Hiillary!

        • grrr- too early- not enough coffee- should read “to get revenge for”

        • leslie says:

          Whatever, mom… I would so love to have PA be the state as well. And I want to see Ed Rendell have to read the results on MSNBC. THAT would be sweet.

    Holy Shit! Former VA Gov. Douglas Wilder (D) (First AA Southern governor since Reconstruction) who endorsed Obama in 2008 has now endorsing NOBODY for POTUS (which is kind of sort of endorsing Romney).

    As reported in Sunday’s Richmond Times-Dispatch:

    Former Gov. L. Douglas Wilder, who backed Democrat Barack Obama for president in 2008, did not endorse Obama or Republican Mitt Romney in an opinion column released days before the election.

    “I have campaigned for and supported the president in the past and many people now want to discuss his job performance with me,” Wilder writes in a column for Reuters.

    “They often note that Obama ran as a moderate — and that is the man they threw their support behind in 2008. But some look back and say that he has governed as a left-of-center liberal who did not keep the focus squarely on jobs and economic recovery.

    “Is that group of independent-minded voters enough to swing Virginia’s 13 electoral votes away from Obama on Tuesday? The race is so close, we will have to wait until November 6 for a definitive answer. But for a state Obama may need to win, that uncertainty after almost four years on the job cannot be a great comfort to his campaign operatives.”

    Wilder does not expressly back Romney, but he says the Republican has met the test to be president.

    “The Republicans endured a bad nominating process. Yet in the end, they seem to have chosen a credible candidate that many Virginians tell me they would feel fairly comfortable with in the Oval Office.

    “Democrats counted on using ad hominem attacks to make Romney seem too unworthy and too unsteady to be the country’s chief executive because of the rough nominating process. But that has not been 100 percent effective.

    Will it be effective enough? We’ll find out on Tuesday.”

    “Democrats counted on using ad hominem attacks

    That’s what Obama has always done with his opponents. Mitt will send him back to Chicago.

    • leslie says:

      Please, please, please……..not Chicago. Can’t we send him to Hawaii or someplace out of sight? I don’t think I could bear being reminded of him every day.

    Well it’s pretty quite, considering. I know it’s Sandy. Two million still without power and temperature getting down to freezing tonight. Twenty million recovering. Very long gas lines still where I am, with police security. I know it’s much worse for the Jersey Shore, NYC boroughs, elsewhere.

    ‘Hillary would win against Romney – Hillary Clinton would be on course for a landslide victory over Mitt Romney, with a lead five points larger than Barack Obama, if she was on the ballot paper instead of the president, according to a poll. The survey by YouGov, shown exclusively to the Guardian, has Clinton beating Romney by 51% to 45% among likely voters. Obama leads Romney by 48% to 47%. YouGov estimates that Clinton’s lead would translate into a massive victory at the electoral college, by 347 to 191 votes. The polling company, which surveys regularly in the US, believes Clinton would win both Florida and North Carolina, states that it projects Obama to lose. The poll shows Clinton performing more strongly that Obama among almost every group : men and women, republicans and independents, those earning less than $40,000 a year and those earning more’.

    • DM says:

      Like the ancient Greeks, I believe in destiny. Yes, our economy would be better. But you know, sometimes God knows what s/he is doing. When I imagine the venom from the obots because their candidate lost to a Clinton, and the other haters foaming at the mouth, I think God loved Hillary more than she’ll ever know.

    k, its out now.

    I’m off to work, but I plan to take my ipad today and tomorrow so that I can follow everything on my commute.

    (Thank you to DM or Dandy Tiger or whoever encouraged me to get an ipad a few weeks ago.I love it.)

    Just saw lots of excited squeeing over Cory Booker on the EW site. Wonder what will happen with him once the dust settles, assuming O is toast. Looking ahead for the D party — have they painted themselves into a corner with their obsession over identity politics? Will it now be seen as racist if anyone other than an AA (most likely man) is put forward as a potential D president? Will Booker now be seen as the next big thing?

    Also, what’s happened to Brazile and Howard? DWS seems to have been magicked away, and Cutter, and that idiot who said that Anne Romney didn’t know what work was. It seems the only people left cheerleading O are in the media. And what does that say?
