  1. Heh. Says the guy that can't respond to a simple point that Jon's legitimacy is primarily based on the fact of whether or not people think he's legit - not polygamy or anything else. But go on fooling yourself little buddy!
  2. I don't know. And I'm not answering your litany of questions either, get over yourself. This has been a bone of contention with you since I started reading these threads, which was about a decade ago, and I understand before that. Get over it. If there's a question of Jon's legitimacy, it will be dealt with by force. You've spent..years arguing this, but the simple point is people believe what they are told to believe in Martin World. If Jon has the power to claim legitimacy as a Targaryen, they will accept it. Just like they did with Aegon and everyone else. That's how legitimacy works. You're looking at the direction of causality entirely wrong. Polygamy, incest, whatever, it all works if you have enough influence. How will he convince millions? With arms. Otherwise the extent of the legitimacy doesn't fucking matter either way.
  3. If only Clara McCaskill voted differently and didn't criticize Bernie, she coulda got reelected.
  4. Just my opinion, but your labeling of Trump and/or the GOP always looks very juvenile. It makes you like silly rather than supporting your assertions.
  5. Right. Like I if you look at this interview, which is where the link I cited came from, she totally steps in it. I agree she's not a very good candidate. At least on the PR aspect. But that don't make her a "Trump Democrat."
  6. Yeah, it's telling that nothing else (as far as I've seen) about this incident is being broadcast. And it's telling no major outlets that I can see are picking it up, outside of one WaPo article. I don't know if I'd characterize the group around the SUV as a "violent mob" but it definitely was a mob pissed off at that cop. Acting like the cop should have just gotten out and left - as @Relic suggested - is ludicrous. Would you get out of your car if there was a bunch of hostile people surrounding it? I think that'd be pretty stupid, and pretty sure no one here posting or reading this would.
  7. There's a marked difference between "hiding" and allowing your opponent to self destruct. Particularly when your opponent is the incumbent, and has quite obvious self-destructive qualities and behavior, and especially when you can't actually physically campaign anyway.
  8. This is ridiculous. She may be way too moderate for your tastes, but what the hell is a Trump Democrat? She actively disagrees with Trump on almost all main issues - other than guns. I agree she appears to be a pretty milquetoast candidate that is very (very) unlikely to win, but let's not conflate moderate Dems with Trumpism. That's how your party loses.
  9. So...Fauci warns U.S. could see 100,000 new coronavirus cases per day:
  10. Agreed. I'm too lazy to find it, but I remember this paper years ago that showed a shockingly strong correlation between the amount of contributions a MC received from their party leader or leadership and success rate/vote share. McGrath's money hopefully muddles that. ETA: This could also potentially be a boon with Cornyn's race.
  11. Looks like outlets are starting to call McGrath defeating Booker in the Kentucky primary.
  12. Just came here to pay my respects to Reiner. Quite the legend.
  13. I don't think you understand what disenfranchising means. It's denying someone their right to vote. Not how their vote translates into their Senators' vote on the floor. That...entirely confuses the idea of a republic. If people want to vote for Senators or representatives based on their positions on the filibuster, they are more than welcome. But the vast majority don't give a shit. As for the Trafalgar polls, I wouldn't worry about it too much. There are pollsters that lean one way or another, but they lean HARD republican. It's not surprising their numbers are so out of step with everyone else's. Just look at the trends.
