    You obviously underestimate the power of the modern dummy.

    Yeah, you are. You just did. Somebody posted how many CA seats the Dems won, and you tried to resurrect the corpse of an argument you've tried to push at least twice already. (And got completely demolished both times). I've even been reduced to trying to make your point for you, so that at least someone will be making a coherent argument in it's support.

    Florida....? oh yeah, Florida.

    Kids these days. Can't spank em. Can't strip em and dump em on the street.
  4. Watching Meet the Press interview Lindsey Graham. He really thinks that the Senate needs to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the investigation of Hillary's emails. And he thinks the Senate needs to investigate the issuance of the FISA warrant. And investigate Kavanaugh's accusers. The interviewer did not ask if he thought the incoming Dem House would engage in a lot of politically motivated meme generators posing as investigations.

    Rule 17. Rigging an election to favor one party is wrong. Its right in in front of Rule 17a. So is claiming people said something they didn't say.
  8. Yeah, after I thought about it, (sometimes I do that. I promise someday I'm going to do that before posting.), it occurred to me that if the firefighters need military support, the Governor would have already done it, on his own. Unless there's some kind of military gear that the Calif NG doesn't already have.

    Your repeating this claim will not make it true. Altering the the rules of an election to give one party an unfair advantage is wrong. Every single time. No additional qualifier is needed. (And frankly, the one you're trying to assign to me is idiotic).

    Now, though, I do think that Kilmer is making a point in here which is actually valid. I don't think he's stating it well, so I'm going to state the valid point that I think he's not stating well. The fact that Party A got X% of the vote, but did not receive X% of the seats, does not prove that the election was rigged against them. And it's a valid point. I'll create an example, to illustrate. Assume that a state votes 51% R. Uniformly. Every single part of the state votes 51% R. It is impossible to draw districts in that state that does not result in the Rs winning 100% of the seats. It's not gerrymandering. It's unavoidable. Now, though, to Kilmer, If the X% above is >50%, but the party doesn't get the majority of the seats? Yeah, it's possible to create an artificial state in which Party A gets more than 50% of the votes, but less than 50% of the seats. But you have to work real hard to create it. For example, assume that a state votes 51% R, uniformly, for the entire state, except for one high rise building which is home to 100,000 Ds. It's possible that such a state will have more D votes than R votes, but the only way it doesn't elect one D (who represents that one building), and all the rest of the districts vote R. Only way to elect more than 1 D in that state is to slice the building into two districts. But I had to work real hard to create that hypothetical. Just my opinion, but you show me a state where Party A gets more than half of the votes, but less than a third of the seats? And it's obvious, that place is glaringly gerrymandered.

    Then your position is absolute moral scum. Altering the the rules of an election to favor one side is always wrong. (And frankly, you cannot convince me that you don't know it.)
  12. Contemplating the joke of a notion that Trump wrote his own answers to Mueller, I'm thinking there should have been a follow up of "Could you share what you think was your best answer?"
