I was LMAO watching MSNBC after the first debate! They are great entertainment in meltdown.
You raise the great point about how to time the flip between Fox and MSLSD - need to get real facts, but don’t want to miss those priceless intangibles: the quivering voice, the fleeting expression as the realization strikes home, the tear, the full bore ripsnorting on-air total psychotic break...
There is still time to gear up for side by side screens with independent DVRs to capture the slow mo replays you can re-post here throughout the Winter.
Alternatively, we can put in the time to figure out how that arcane Picture In Picture function works on our existing system - maybe even finally get the time set on that old VCR.
The entertainment will be epic. I believe.
Stock up on the popcorn, adult beverages, mallowmars for each swing state as it is called for Romney/Ryan and ammunition for celebratory gunfire. YEEE HAWW!
Obama Must Be Defeated!
Another potential factor is D’s voting R.
Reagan pulled a huge chunk of votes from registered D’s, blowing away the projections.
There is a significant Jewish vote in PA, and a huge Catholic vote, which probably won’t be voting as D as they used to be. There are bitter clinger D’s, and coal miner D’s, and unemployed long time D’s.
There has been been a lot of talk about relative D or R strength in registering, early voting, absentee and enthusiasm.
There has been a lot of talk about how much independents are leaning R or D.
But I have not heard much from the number crunchers (Rove and such), of how many registered D’s will cross vote.
If anyone could stampede some cross voting, it’s this once-in-a-hundred-year-flood disaster of a President.
Obama Must Be Defeated!
My Dad, very conservative, nearly ninety, registered as a Democrat during WWII. The last time he voted for a Democrat for any Federal office was Truman. But, he doesn't want to deal with changing registration. I've told him it's completely painless. I change Parties just about every other two-year cycle just to cause problems for the Dems if a Republican is unopposed or it's clear the right 'Pubbie is going to win. Still can't convince him.
Given that PA has the fifth oldest median age in the country -- tied with geriatric Florida -- there is probably some percentage of people like him. The nominal Dem advantage is +13. The active registration advantage is D+12. It's lower than that, but this is still a "union shop" and consequently a heavy Dem state. We win the mid-terms pretty reliably, because the Dems are so lazy.
Perhaps in Pennsylavania pal, not in Massachusetts. The parasite class is alive and well and employed in all levels of government her in the BayGay State.
The only rational reason I can think of to include PA in the final push is the possibility that post-storm damage will seriously depress turnout in Philadelphia. I don't know enough about the situation there to say whether that is a reasonable gamble or a Hail Mary pass.
As I recall, we did not know that Toomey had won in PA in 2010 until Wednesday, but I don’t recall the margin. Union people are so strong in PA.
“Ive been debating this scenario with myself. The issue is how much pure jubilation do you want versus pure schadenfreude?”
The video of the pmsnbc moment will surely be on youtube.
I don’t think this is a hail Mary, it’s a reflection of reality. What can be done in OH has been done. It all boils down to turnout. And to a lesser extent, fraud.
Here in VA, we’ve been saturated. Anyone who has the remotest interest in voting has pretty much made up their mind. It’s a question of who shows and who decides not to bother. GOTV is the name of the game.
The Toomey Senate race wasn't a blowout. He won by 1-2 points. And considering 2010 was a blowout overall, it shows PA was closer than the average on the key national statewide race. It's hard to imagine Toomey could've won in a presidential year which will turn out more of the stupid vote to make up for 1-2 points. The Obama sycophants didn't care to vote in 2010, but they'll be out this year.
