    And these are the same people who preached tolerance to us in the 90s.
    They don't want tolerance, they demand affirmation.
    And anyone who doesn't agree with them must be shut down and run out of business.
    I swear I'm sick of these homobastards trying to impose their hideous, foul, grotesque, disgusting, and perverted views on the rest of us.
    They talk about the Family Research Council like they talked about the KKK 15-20 years ago.
    What's next?
    We have to sign an oath to support LGBTQ in order to vote or get a DL?
    There really is no end in sight. They will never stop.
    If people don't recognize this then they will be shocked one day to learn that their pastor MUST perform a gay wedding or go to jail.
    That's where the homofascists are taking us.
    I'm sick to death of it and it's getting damn hard to be nice about it anymore.

    It’s maybe the most powerful documentary I’ve ever seen.
    Michael Morton is a compelling figure to be sure. One can’t watch his story without taking stock of his own life.

    Tell that to Michael Morton.
    Just google the name and you’ll learn pretty quick how an evil prosecutor in Williamson County, TX deliberately withheld two key pieces of exculpatory evidence in the case.
    Morton was convicted for killing his wife on August 13, 1986, and served 25 years in prison all the while maintaining his innocence.
    In 2002 the Innocense Project took on his case.
    They uncovered the evidence and fought for 7 years just to get DNA testing of a blue bandana found only 100 feet from the crime scene.
    The testing showed the blood of his wife, and the blood of a male who was NOT Michael Morton.
    It turns out the DNA was already in CODIS and the real killer was discovered.
    But the DA didn’t give a damn, and the IP actually investigated the real killer’s crime spree and time lime.
    In doing so they solved a cold case from 1988 where a woman was bludgeoned in her home in basically the identical way Mrs. Morton was killed.
    Also their three year old son saw the murder, and told his grandmother about it.
    He said the monster with the red hands did it, and daddy wasn’t at home.
    This was withheld from the defense.
    So Michael Morton lost his wife, 25 years with his son, and to top it off he served a horrific 25 years in prison wrongly convicted.
    He was formally exonerated and released in 2011.
    The Texas legislature passed the Michael Morton Act in 2013 to try and prevent this kind of thing from happening.
    As a former Texas prosecutor and present defense attorney I can say our system is not nearly as good as it could be, and certainly not as good as people outside of it think it is.
    Morton actually thought that because he was innocent that by the end of the trial Justice would be done.
    Just keep that in mind if you ever end up on a jury.
    There are serious consequences when politically driven prosecutors with no conscience take a high profile case.
    There is an excellent documentary on Netflix called “An Unreal Dream: The Michael Morton Story”. Sorry for the preaching. It’s just an issue I’m all too familiar with.
    Oh yea, OJ is guilty based on everything I saw.

    I am a lawyer, and the answer is that the only way to strike down an executive order is by repealing it through legislation and then overriding the certain veto by 2/3 vote in each chamber.
    The other way is in court, should the EO violate the Constitution. Judicial review of EOs is well recognized.
    In this case, depending on exactly what the EO says, the fastest remedy would probably be to try to get an injunction by a non Obama appointed judge.
    If enough rats gets pissed that he is dragging the whole party to its demise then we may end up with enough votes for an override. That would be my preference.

    I suspect that Roberts and Alito didn’t disent because then it would make it look like the full court has already decided on the merits of the case.
    I know that is weak and certainly not what I would have done.
    But if you aren’t going to get the stay, and you want Kennedy to keep an open mind about it, then it makes some sense from a long term strategic standpoint.
    But overall its gravely disappointing that there aren’t five justices to put the brakes on this issue until it can fully hear the cases and resolve the circuit splits.
    Right now what we really need is open and absolute defiance by the state’s.
    Force a showdown so the SCOTUS will see that they should think about how irrelevant they will look should they rule in favor of gay marriage and try to impose it on the whole nation.

    I’m not too optimistic about a couple of house races- this one and McSally, but I do think Sullivan will hang on.
    From what I’ve read, the elections division in Alaska is pretty good.
    The lack of information is really evidence that they have locked down the votes to make sure “missing” boxes don’t turn up, etc.
    Recall MN in 2008 where there were continual reports in the few days after the election of votes just turning up- car trunks, and all kinds of obvious BS.
    I really don’t think they can do that in Alaska.
    Evidently they actually cross reference absentee ballots with registration records.
    Both sides are watching the mail in votes carefully.
    And at least two Alaskan media outlets have said BigItch is hanging on to numbers that just aren’t there.
    The fact is that there are votes coming in from all over the state to be counted.
    If Sullivan was only ahead by 2-3,000 I would be nervous.
    But in Alaska, an 8,000 vote election night lead (especially in a mid term) is hard to overcome.
    That said, I wouldn’t rest one second if I were on the Sullivan team.

    It’s an interesting exchange.
    I think some more context of that back and forth could help clarify the issue.
    That said, I’m not sure that a majority of SCOTUS is going to care about their intent.
    The fact is the dems rushed the process, and they wrote the bill.
    Now it has been passed and we know what’s in it.
    The plain language of the statute is in direct opposition to the IRS rule.
    My take us that the 4 justices who found the entire law to be unconstitutional are already going to be inclined to vote against the administration.
    Also, Roberts has the freedom to vote with them this time because he can lay the blame squarely on Congress, and say they can fix it if they want it to mean what the IRS says.
    It doesn’t highly politicize the court like the first case.
    And the first Roberts vote (while deplorable) will give him cover this time around.
    He can say “see I don’t have a dog in this- just calling balls and strikes.”
    I also think SCOTUS actually waited for Tuesday’s results before deciding whether to hear the case.
    Now they have the public support to cripple the law- as if there was any doubt before.

    It is certainly interesting that most observers thought SCOTUS would either hear or decline to hear King the week before.
    But on Monday the court did not include King on the list of accepted cases, and the ACA fans cheered.
    But Monday afternoon the court noted on the docket that King would be discussed in conference on Friday (yesterday).
    Then they went ahead and broke tradition and announced they would hear King on the same day of the conference instead of waiting until Monday to announce.
    Somehow I tend to think the court wanted to see what happened Tuesday before they considered whether to take this case.

    This article is misleading at best. Thousands of these votes are actually having to be cross referenced with registration rolls before they will actually count.
    While frustrating, I think the lack of regular updates is evidence that the dems aren’t able to just dump loads of boxes in and immediately “update” the tally.
    I went back and looked at 2008 and checked the numbers.
    It looks like the total votes cast this year represent about 2/3 of the 2008 total.
    In 2008 Big Itch was down roughly 3,000 votes on election night, and he ended up winning by just shy of 4,000.
    So even if he wins the post election tally by the same margin as he did in 2008, AND the number of votes that come in are the same as 2008, he will still be 1,000 shy.
    And those assumptions are not going to pan out.
    There are actually areas for both candidates where they have an advantage in numbers.
    In reality I think Sullivan will hold on with a few thousand to spare.
    Also, they talk about ballots that are out there, but that doesn’t mean they will all come in.
    I understand the paranoia, because I’ve seen all the same crap everyone else here has over the years.
    If our lead was 3 or 4,000 I would be nervous. Especially if the senate majority was going to be determined by the outcome.
    Sullivan’s team is acutely aware of who they are dealing with.
    Over 3% puts it beyond the margin of post election hanky panky.

    Perhaps RBG will die or retire before the SCOTUS hears this. If the GOP senate will leave the seat vacant until the next president then the four conservatives can choose to take the appeal on this case and with a 4-4 vote the lower court will be affirmed. That's assuming Kennedy goes gay, which most people expect him to do.
    Hopefully the 5th Circuit will go the same way, and they take up that case too.
    But with the present composition of the court I don't see how we can win, unless Kennedy decides principles of federalism are more important than the gay agenda that he loves so much.

    It is no small matter that the court took this case.

    That’s because the legislation does not provide subsidies to those in states that don’t have state run exchanges.
    But the IRS took it upon itself to write a rule that plainly contradicts the statute.
    There is very recent case law where the EPA did the same thing and the court ruled 5-4 against the agency.

    IF, and that’s a BIG IF, he listens to someone rational (like a Dick Morris type who advised Clinton), then he can give the democrap party something to go on in 2016.

    While I reluctantly (for now anyway) disagree about our chances of picking up seats in CA, CT, MD, WA, etc. (only because of the demographics there), I do see your point about how badly he can hurt them going into the next elections. I will be happy if we hold the seats we got in 2010 at this point.

    If 0 doubles down against a heavily controlled (but not veto proof) GOP Congress and Senate then he may cause a revolt within his own party.
    Presidents don’t usually get much love from their party in the legislative branch once they hit lame duck status anyway. We could see a number of dems flip, and also enough pissed off dems to join in overriding some vetoes.

    After all they aren’t going to let him take them down again.
    He’s done it to them twice in a row! They are going to worry about their future while he plays golf and obsesses over his pResidential library.

    Also, Reid looks tired, angry, and frankly on borrowed time. If he doesn’t make it through this term then the GOP governor could replace him.
    But with the best healthcare in the world we have seen some very old senators in worse shape than him carry on. The need for power is evidently insatiable for some of these people. Plus they owe favors and have skeletons they don’t want coming out.

    If the GOP plays their hand right they can really put themselves in a great position going forward. They have to be bold and do everything to NOT piss off the base. If they go in holding hands with dems on a milk toast BS consensus platform then they deserve the spanking they will get in 2016.

    If any SCOTUS vacancy comes up, the Senate should stall the confirmation out and let the next president fill it. I don’t care if it’s in February. The only way I’d be okay with a confirmation is if the nomination is recommended by Ted Cruz himself. And we both know 0 isn’t going to appoint anyone who isn’t just like the others he has put on the courts.

    I also wonder if we picked up enough seats in the House to where we might have a shot at a better Speaker. I’m probably delusional to even hope for that, but we were expected to net around 3-6 seats, and we will likely end up with around 18 if my last count is correct. That’s a BIG deal.

    Your post gave me a lot to think about. We have more opportunity than I realized. God bless.

    More like (0 to Crist) “let’s go put it in the hole, then we can grab a round of golf.”

    I remember when Nader got like 90,000 votes IIRC in Florida in 2000.
    A reporter asked him if he cost Al Gore the election in FL.
    He didn’t miss a beat and said “Al Gore cost me the election in Florida.”
    So funny!
    Yea we definitely need Green Party candidates if they are going to run fake libertarians.

    This is better than 2010 by far IMO.
    The number of highly contested senate races we cleaned up is extraordinary!
    Last time we left a bunch on the table including Reid’s.
    But yes, my greatest hopes were realized.
    Still hoping chickenchoker from CO goes down.
    And of course LA and AK go our way.

    I’m just glad we are upset over a race that very few even had on the radar coming into the night.

  • Crist campaign files motion to extend voting hours in Broward County

    IIRC that’s how John Ashcroft “lost” in 2000 against the dead Carnahan.
    A federal judge kept the voting going for a few extra hours in St. Louis.
    Just long enough to make sure the GOP candidate lost.
    Here there is a good chance that the slowdown was caused by the democrats in the first place.
    All that “calibrating” etc. takes time after all.
    The good news is that the Crist campaign feels they need this extension to have a chance at winning.
    Scott better be lawyered up to the eyeballs.

    Maybe some GOP counties are wising up like the one in Wisconsin that waits until Milwaukee is done before releasing their numbers.
    Of course that would be the real surprise of the night.

    I would recommend a high bridge for them.
    Preferably just above a railroad crossing.
    Just in case they need any suggestions.

    In 2004 after seeing exit polls I took a Valium and a nap.
    After some rest I got up and watched the returns showing the exit polls to be total crap.
    That said, have we ever seen exit polls that skew I’m favor of the GOP?
