Kind of upset that most discussed topic about the debate is his line about PBS not all of his other bullshit.


It's just amazing to me that a guy that said, "I love Big Bird. I actually like you too, Jim" won the debate.

The average American clearly just wants a candidate to stick it to the man, regardless if anything coming out of their mouth is true, or in Mitt's case, disqualifies you from even being a decent human being. Dude effectively threatened to fire the moderator to take care of less than a percent of our budget but said not a word about the billions of dollars in yearly oil subsidies or the cost of tax cuts for the rich (at least one but probably both of which he'd like to increase).

There was actually a pretty good blog post on, get this, FOX News about how things like "Big Bird" are concrete things that people can understand, and that always overshadow more abstract concepts like budgets, despite the fact that most people actually want details regarding the less "tangible" things. "People are simple and stupid" was kind of an over-arching theme in the post, but it was a preitty interesting read.

The fact that the details people have been presented with this time around literally don't make any sense probably doesn't help.

"In February 1504, a desperate Columbus was stranded in Jamaica, abandoned by half his crew and denied food by the islanders. The heavens that he relied on for navigation, however, would guide him safely once again. Knowing from his almanac that a lunar eclipse was coming on February 29, 1504, Columbus warned the islanders that his god was upset with their refusal of food and that the moon would “rise inflamed with wrath” as an expression of divine displeasure. On the appointed night, the eclipse darkened the moon and turned it red, and the terrified islanders offered provisions and beseeched Columbus to ask his god for mercy."

Religion is adorable.

The manufacturer's, but you'll likely have to call them.

Amazon do absolutely loads. Searching for 'laptop charger' brings back 1.7 million results. The few times my charger has broken, I just order another one from there. So long as you don't have a really obscure laptop, they'll sell the charger you need.

If that's no good, try: http://www.whichlaptop.co.uk/power-p...ptop-chargers/

Oh, Arkansas. First a state senate candidate calls slavery a blessing in disguise, now a candidate for state House thinks parents should be able to bring their children to court to make the case for having them killed. Obviously we need a failsafe, in the form of the children being allowed to defend themselves in court and make the case for why the state shouldn't execute them.

Charlie Fuqua, the author of this gem, admits that this will "probably" never happen, but should be made law regardless to keep children in line and remind them their parents have the power to execute them.

Pew has Romney up:
Quote:
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has surged following his strong debate performance last week, and he now holds a slight lead over President Obama among likely voters, according to a new poll released Monday by the Pew Research Center.

Little behind but on the gallup poll numbers...


The 5 point lead is the 7 day average...In the 3 days after the debate, Romney was averaging a 47/47 tie, but today i'm pretty sure it dropped back down to an Obama lead, and the 7 day average stayed at 5 point lead

Lets pretend I didn't say Pew would have Obama up earlier this morning haha. I checked out the data and totally read it as a 4 point Obama lead.

I'm still not concerned.
