A thousand years in jail?!  Man, you are a hardass!   :-)

Speaking of midterm elections, it's time to go vote.  I'm sure we'll have lots to chat about tomorrow.  Hope everyone's favorites do well.  See you later!

Our primaries were 3 months ago....and the races are heating up.

Beating Dem. Rep. John Spratt is going to be difficult but hopefully this will be the time for his demise. Spratt has 40% of the votes sewed up, they all look like Obama (hint-hint). His opponent has to get 51% of the total votes from just 60% of the voters.
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

I was number 79 in my ward and the 101st ballot put in the ballot machine about 11:15 AM.

Looks like Scott Walker will be running for Gov. on the GOP ticket in WI and businessman Ron Johnson will be taking on Russ Feingold.

Carl Paladino crushed Rick Lazio in the NY Republican Governor's primary.  25 percentage points on the Republican line. :hyper: :cheersmate: :hi5:  The Conservative line had Lazio winning, but only 5% or so of the total votes were cast on that line.

That's a great pic, Rusty!   :lmao:

My guy Paladino won the primary!!!  I've been doing some work on his campaign (I'm a sign czar  :-))  Hoffman was my guy for Congress, and it's another squeaker...too close to call, 500 votes apart with 1800 absentee ballots. 

So....onward and upward!

Rusty, Walter would be insulted by comparing him like that. He's already one pissed-off dude, and now you've got him riled up again.

Yes, of course! Not a problem! But Walter is no dummy. He's got more sense in that blockhead of his than Plugs will ever hope to have.

What are the tier 2 races that everyone is looking forward to? Of course we're all watching Pelosi, Reid, Fwank, et. al. But who are the lower level scum suckers that you can't wait to see the results for.

Personally, my most anticipated race is Alan Grayson (Jackass-FL8). I hope November 3rd sees him out on his ass. I can't find much online, but what I've found has that one as a tossup.

Next would have to be the local race for Governor. Perry v. White, aka Shitty v. Shittier. I think Perry will win again. Guess it could be worse.

Dude.  It's a total suckfest, right?  I am, however, looking forward to voting for Stefani Carter.  That Carol Kent is nasty.  Met both of them at our Neighborhood Association Meeting a few months back.
