They throw their tie over the same shoulder when they’re getting intense and say “it’s a McKinsey thing”.

i thought it was just a general "guess it's back to the drawing board and work harder" comment when you said buttigieg's campaign needed to throw their ties over their shoulders after the fake black endorsements were reported.

Muslim immigration is a huge issue in lots of Europe, including the UK.

yeah, it is, for sure.

My dad told me that my cousin that currently hunts coyotes from a stand used to have a pack of greyhounds to hunt them with, I thought my dad was crazy but apparently this was/is a thing?

I need more details. All my dad told me was the greyhounds would chase the coyote down and then the old grizzled veteran greyhound would go for the kill shot on the throat.

Can you confirm/deny?

yeah, that's about it.  there's a little variation in coyote finding technique (my grandfather had the greyhounds in box in a pickup and would drive around in fields and such until someone saw a coyote) but basically you find a coyote then the dogs chase it and kill it.

the fastest dog is the throw dog and has to trip the coyote, the kill dog is the boldest dog that will jump on the coyote and kill it and how ever many other dogs there are will bite at it a bit after the kill dog starts the fight.

FWIW, I view your worldview as equally puzzling. 

while i should admit that i probably don't have as much of a grasp on your worldview as i pretended to in my most recent post, and i also don't know how specific to the issue of legalism you intended your comment to be, i can't say that i've ever thought that you had any real idea what my worldview is.

go whatever the army team is called (the sheeps?).

however it's ignorant to paint it as simply anti-immigrant legislation.

and to the extent it is about immigration it's at least as much about polish immigrants as muslim immigrants.  as a rule, americans seem to have a hard time understanding european prejudices because we are so racialized that we assume the whole world shares that mindset.

If they did something unlawful, then sue their asses and make them pay. If not, they're just doing their jobs. I don't believe in bogeymen.

Can’t condemn anything that is lawful. Amazing that you are sticking with this hot take.

yeah, that's a really weird way to view the world.

You say this with certainty, perhaps I took this article at face value too much.

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/9/17/20868790/republicans-lose-popular-vote-win-electoral-college

oh yeah, it definitely advantaged 'pubs in 2016 and very likely will in 2020 as well, but those aren't structurally baked in.  in 2004, 2008 and 2012 it favored the dems.  it just depends on which party is wasting votes by winning states by a lot and which party is winning the nailbiters.

we could take the uk's spot and annex scotland as the 51st state.

18
I wish we could join the EU.

would be very pleasant.

I think there is a pretty decent chance that Scotland ends up independent and the UK goes away.

that was my initial thought, but i've become convinced that it is a lot less likely than it might appear at first glance.

Normal people are sick of the circus, Dems will fall in line behind the nominee, he'll be voted out.

i think that's probably right.  it's a lot closer than it should be though.

the ec doesn't systematically disadvantage either rural or urban voters.  nor does it systematically benefit either dems or pubs.  good grief.

i think the bloomberg dance vid is a hoax?  not positive.

538's polling average is finally live!  like 8 months later than it should be, but still cool.

I honestly don't know how much longer there can be zero relationship to how bad a campaign this has been and Biden's poll numbers.

probably only serving one term is pretty much his most attractive feature.

champion cow right here.
