    More that times were changing as the 70s came in. That’s not necessarily a comment on the quality of the music. But seven years is a pretty good run, all the same.

    Fair enough. Although given the commercial success of Paul, George, and Ringo in the 70s, it appears that they adapted pretty well to the evolving musical scene.

    You're right that the musical scene was about to change in huge way in the mid-70s with disco taking over. Although some 60s performers had some success with disco, only the BeeGees thrived to be accompanied by a whole bunch of new acts.

    The Beatles quit at the perfect time. The Law of Diminishing Returns was setting in big-time on them.

    I don't see that at all. Their last two albums, Let It Be and Abbey Road , were both really good. Given the immediate successes of the individual careers of Paul, George, and Ringo, it didn't look like the Beatles were slowing down much. It could be argued that McCartney and Wings became the biggest act in the world once the Beatles broke up.

    It was clear that the personal relationships were strained (particularly between Paul and John) but if they had acted like professionals and set aside those differences, they still had a lot of creative ideas. It was also clear that the world had not tired of the Beatles yet.

    I have used your argument for voting for rinos to others for 50 years including 2012

    My argument? I didn't argue in favor of voting for Cochran - I argued against voting for the Democrat. A person always has the option of withholding their vote if the circumstances warrant and as I stated in the post, that's what I would do if I lived in Mississippi. I don't know how many times I got lite up on this forum for withholding my vote from Romney. Romney was my epiphany - I realized that it was possible for the Republicans to nominate someone so bad that I couldn't hold my nose and vote for him. I was also willing to withhold my vote from my Congress women, RINO Lynn Jenkins until congressional redistricting made it a moot point.

    I don't think that the advantage of incumbency in political races is at all a controversial statement. The benefit of sending a message to the GOPe for their reprehensible tactics needs to be weighed against the potential cost of having to unseat an incumbent Democrat senator in 2020. I don't want to have the voters in Mississippi cut off their nose to spite their face.

    The best thing that could happen in Mississippi is for McDaniel's challenge to be successful. If a new election could be ordered due to proven voting irregularities in the initial primary and McDaniel is successful in the re-vote, the GOPe would get its black eye and the conservatives would get their candidate.

    Wasn't McDaniel supposed to hold a press conference today? I haven't seen anything about it.

    I will not vote for a democrat, nor will I vote for cochran.

    If you are offended by both candidates and there is no third-party option, then not voting on this line of the ballot is the logical action. If I were in Mississippi, that's what I'd do.

    I know people are mad at Cochran and the GOPe but don't vote in a Democrat. It is hard to oust an incumbent - even a clown like Al Fracken is a challenge. Who knows what will happen in the 2020 election - there could be a popular Democrat Presidential incumbent seeking re-election at the head the ticket who boosts all the Democrat candidates down the ballot or an unpopular Republican Presidential incumbent seeking re-election who weighs down all Republican candidates down the ballot. It would be a shame to see Childers become the next John Stennis and serve as the Mississippi senator forever. That's a risk you run if you vote in a Democrat with the idea of removing them after one term. A no-incumbent 2020 Senate race in Mississippi would naturally favor the Republicans.

    In Kansas, the moderate Republicans believe that politics works like this: if a moderate is nominated, conservatives must shut up, toe the line and vote for the party but if a real conservative is nominated, moderates are free to criticize and vote for Democrats.

    That is how we got stuck with Sebelius. The RINOs would rather have a Democrat (Sebelius) than a real conservative (Shallenburger) to replace a RINO (Graves).

    I don't like soccer but what makes me dislike it even more is when soccer fans get all indignant about my dislike of the game. If you want to watch it, fine, but don't try to convert me and I won't try to convert you.

    I think that the author has a point about the underlying tone among many (not all) soccer enthusiasts that America is somehow inferior because the whole world loves soccer except us. I have found it odd that so many conservatives who like soccer will resort to 'the rest of the world loves soccer' argument. Since when does America take marching orders from the rest of the world?

    Sarksian out and Peterson in = addition by subtraction for UW football...

    A clear gain by the Huskies, no question but I'm not sure that it is addition by subtraction. Sark did a nice job revitalizing UW football after the Willingham debacle but I think that he had reached his ceiling. Sarkisian is a decent coach, not a liability, so the Huskies didn't gain from his loss but by the replacement with a much better coach in Petersen.

    Although he has yet to play a game, USC’s new coach Steve Sarkisian will be on the hot seat, since he was not a popular choice among many Trojan fans.

    It doesn't help Sark that the guy SC really wanted withdrew from the process only to re-emerge and take Sark's old position at Washington. As a UW graduate, I'm pleased as I can be that Chris Petersen after saying no to big-time suitor after big-time suitor said yes to the Huskies. Petersen is a wonderful coach who would have been successful anywhere but I think that he's a perfect fit at UW.

    Impeachment is a political act. So lets use it to our advantage, not our disadvantage. Impeachment now will vastly increase Democrat turn out in November. Stupid idea.

    With all due respect, it is exactly this kind of thinking that has gotten us into the mess we're in now. Short-term political advantage should not trump principles. When Congress sees the President and his agents committing unconstitutional acts, it is their duty and obligation to take action. Failure to act will only foster future tyranny by the Executive Branch. Personally, I believe that the conservative position on this is to do what is right for the country even if it entails short-term sacrifice (and I'm not convinced that the interests of the conservatives and the Republican Party are aligned).

    The way that the Republican "leadership" is framing this, they have already surrendered. They are afraid to challenge Obama because it will rally his base but by not challenging him, the Republicans are giving him the authority to rule by fiat. These vague threats of doing something after the elections (with their dreams of controlling both houses of Congress) are meaningless and Obama knows it. As soon as the elections are over, the argument will become impeachment is too divisive and besides Obama only has two years left. Or that impeachment is a waste of time because there will be no conviction. (We have already seen both these arguments on this thread.)

    Impeachment is as much about future Presidents as it is about Obama, so the timing and conviction concerns are irrelevant. If Congress stands aside and lets Obama run roughshod over it and the Constitution, the stage is set for even greater abuses in the future. Palin is right in thinking long-term about winning the war and Boehner is wrong for thinking of only the short-term consequences. One is speaking as a statesman, the other as a politician.

    The Gop didn't run Ron Reagan...In fact, the GOP opposed Reagan...

    Let's not forget that one of the leaders of that "Republican" group who opposed all things Reagan was George Romney. Mitt is a natural heir to the liberal wing of the Republican Party - he got his politics from his family.

    Such a bone-headed stunt as a Draft Romney movement could doom the Republican Party. Re-nominating Romney might be enough to entice Palin, Cruz, or some other viable, legitimate conservative to agree to run as a third-party candidate. Could a conservative win in a three-way race with Hillary and Romney? Probably not but he or she could be competitive. It would be interesting to see how a sincere, energetic, personable conservative (like Palin or Cruz) would fare again two politically tone-deaf empty suits like Romney and Hillary. But what is certain in this scenario is that the Republican Party would become Humpty Dumpty and all the king's men and all the king's horses could not put it back together again.

    I suggest a recount and analysis of votes, tossing out ineligible ones.

    A lot easier said than done. It would be easy enough to cross check the voting records of the Democrat primary to the run-off to determine who was ineligible but you don't know how they voted. The problem is that once identified, the ineligible voter could claim to have voted for McDaniel and there would be no way of disproving the claim.

    Properly instructed, these voters could essentially have two votes under that plan. The illegitimate one that in all likelihood was cast for Cochran last night and then the legitimate McDaniel vote that gets thrown out by their claim to have voted for McDaniel.

    Be up front with her, don’t make her wonder what will be her future.

    I agree but one other thing needs to be done. To prevent people like Lerner from clamming up and waiting for Obama to pardon them, the House controlled by the Republicans needs to be proactive. The House of Representatives control the purse-strings. Make it known that any pardon of a key IRS person will immediately result in a draconian cut in the IRS budget.

    Did you see Barak Obama throw a baseball? I’m not sure we don’t already have a women President.

    Wouldn’t be the first time that I was the skunk at the picnic. I’ll wear the title of denier proudly and will be ultimately proven right more times than not. One of the principles of my profession is professional skepticism.
