(Unfortunately I don't know you, since you seem like a great person, but unless it's obvious from someone's avatar or username I have no compunction using 'he' until the grammaticians in Oxford come up with a gender-neutral pronoun that is as concise.)


Lol I like you.

Yes, yes, I know what she meant.  I was just joking with her.  But do you really think we need another round of voting?...

Aww, someone came to my defense!  That like, never happens anymore! :D  (And yet, people still think I'm a guy.  Never quite figured that one out.)

And yes, I do, though you weren't asking me.  You could make it very quick on the heels of the other though, to save on advertising inundation.

The benefits of instant-runoff voting is that there is only one election (saves tons of money for the people running them), but have basically the same effect of a runoff.

(Unfortunately I don't know you, since you seem like a great person, but unless it's obvious from someone's avatar or username I have no compunction using 'he' until the grammaticians in Oxford come up with a gender-neutral pronoun that is as concise.)

Clinton is just looking hurt now.  Just let him have it, Hill.  Then you can sit back and chuckle in November when he loses.

Get a clue. I dislike Hillary's campaign just as much as you appear to dislike Obama's, but Justice Stevens will be 88 next January. Breyer and Ginsburg are in their 70s. Unless you think McCain'll appoint a few Souters (fat chance in this age of "Federalist" Society conservative judicial dominance), vote. It's no longer even plausible, but as recently as a week ago I was saying that if Hillary managed to pull this out I would do my own lesser-of-two-evils dance with voting booth.

Exactly.

Also, you do realize is says "she's a tough mfer, but she knows how to party" under my aggressively feminist avatar, right? ;) :D

Hah, my bad. I'm using a laptop with a pretty high resolution, so I had to scale it down to read the billboard. *snaps* from a fellow traveller.

 :D... this was a funny exchange to read

We're not accepting this CHANGE UP in the rules. Period. American presidents have been in the bed with organized crime, corporate pilferers, and the like for years. And all u want to put on this man is that his pastor said "Gotdamn America?" Hell, America.U got off pretty damn well, if you ask me...
