The New Joe Montgomery Birther Pit / Re: new election poll

This is exactly my motivation. Pure repudiation. also i want to contribute to the margin of victory in the hopes of avoiding a controversial outcome

are you still considered a resident of a state?

That's a poor analogy.  If you want to stick with RP, it'd be that he as theoretically near the end of year 4 with the 4th year having gone ridiculously worse than the first shitty 3 to where KSU was at risk of somehow not even having football going forward if he kept at it, and the options were keep him or hire whoever was the most basic, old, safe out-of-work coach at the time.

And of course the choice would be to hire Coach Basic and at least end the crap show and reset normalcy for a more winning selection after a few years.

iirc, kstate did decide to rehire coach basic and it worked out ok.

i agree with ipa and tdaver that voting in a non-competitive state is entirely expressive, and one need not weigh any of the considerations with which voters in competitive states are burdened or privileged.

in several previous elections i've voted for presidential candidates i did not actually wish to win, because i thought it best allowed me to express the direction i would prefer politics to shift.  i did that in 2016, and don't regret it.

in 2020, i voted for biden because the most important message i most wished to express is complete rejection of trump, trumpism, the lawless corruption, cruelty and incompetence that have characterized his presidency and the falsity of the incoherent and ignorant idea that both candidates and current iterations of both parties are in any way moral equivalents.

oh, and i forgot about this.  trump has had to plow a ton of money back into fundraising to keep the spigot on.

I never donated to Heger because I never thought she had a chance of winning, I still don’t but it will be closer than I thought.

my expectation since forever has been that she'll run a couple of points behind biden.

8
yeah, a lot of people think that.

 :Take the Bait:
I will say I have never seen Cornyn ads ever until this election.  But every other commercial is for Heger.

that's interesting because hegar hasn't raised all that much money herself.  she raised like 14 million last quarter, which would normally be fine, but compared to like harrison raising 50 million or whatever it was, it's pretty bad.

Just for you, I shall try.

thank you.

not broke, but definitely more limited than the biden campaign.  important that most of the money isn't the campaign's own because the campaign gets cheaper ad rates than the affiliated groups do.


12
I don't know?

please pay attention to the credits the next time you see them.

13
interesting that this is completely focused on health care and covid.  trump won this district by 9 in '16, cruz won it by 1 in '18.


14
If the question is whether I've seen a bunch of MJ Hegar ads lately, the answer is "yes."

paid for by her campaign, by schumer's group or by this superpac?

15
texas posters, please report here if you see any of these ads.

with two weeks to go, approximately 25% of the expected electorate has already voted.


17
heh.  i didn't even notice that katkid asked mir, not me.

18
people need to go to jail.  i hope voters will pressure the biden administration to make sure this happens.

there may need to be some updates to what constitutes a hostile environment when working from home.

20
populists.  beto is actually more than a little populist, so i can obviously tolerate a bit of it.  it's often effective electoral messaging.

21
why do you not like her?

i don't like her anti-corporate, populist give me a whiteboard and a tv camera grandstanding.  also, she supported warren.


someone on twitter pointed out to me that despite her rhetoric, her voting record is much more moderate.  she's only been there a couple of years, so that might be an artifact of a small sample of cross-motivating bills, but assuming it's real, i dunno if that makes it better or worse.
