    Not to be too big a nit, but:

    If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
    Never make a pretty woman your wife
    So from my personal point of view
    Get an ugly girl to marry you

    If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life
    Never make a pretty woman your wife
    So from my personal point of view
    Get an ugly girl to marry you

    A pretty woman makes her husband feel small
    And very often causes his downfall
    As soon as he marries her then she starts
    To do the things that will break his heart

    But if you make an ugly woman your wife
    You'll be happy for the rest of your life
    An ugly woman cooks meals on time
    She'll always give you peace of mind

    A little more inside baseball: Dahlberg screwed up royally by agreeing to suspend voting at 2:00 a.m. and continue at 9 a.m. That allowed McFadden to send out buses to pick up delegates who skipped Friday's event (for work or other reasons). I had heard two CDCs marvel at all of the new voters Saturday morning, then heard someone affiliated with Dahlberg's campaign say that there were 700 new voters that morning. Dahlberg went from being ahead 54% - 44% on the 7th ballot with 1186 people voting to only 49.3% to 49.2% with 1937 voting on the 8th ballot. From there, momentum clearly on McFadden's side. If Dahlberg had gone one more ballot, he might have crept up to 56%, which probably would have been enough to get him over the hump on the next vote.

    Not a huge fan of McFadden, Dahlberg, or Ortman, but the latter two had major potential skeletons for Franken to exploit (divorce/credit card issue for Dahlberg, potential mention on Brodkorb "cheater's list" for Ortman). Don't know if any exist for McFadden; I know people were digging hard.

    Seifert, being from rural Minnesota, is supposedly the only Republican who could reach outstate voters. Don't know if I buy that. If Johnson runs more ads like his hilarious ad comparing Dayton's policies to a student driver, he'll have a real shot. Seifert will be tough in the primary; Honour's wasting his money.

  • Al Franken Issues Dire Warning Over Palin Endorsement Of GOP Rival?

    If Ortman is the candidate, Franken has nothing to worry about. Aside from being, at best, a milquetoast campaigner, it is rumored that Ortman is on the Brobkorb list - the list of Minnesota legislators/staffers who has been engaging in an extra-marital affair, supposedly with another prominent politician. Brodkorb is a former website provocateur/legislative staffer who was having an affair with the former Senate Majority Leader, leading to his firing. In retaliation, Brodkorb filed a wrongful termination lawsuit, threatening to name others who also cheated on their spouses, but who weren’t fired. Brodkorb’s attorney “accidentally” neglected to confidentially file a document with the list of cheating politicians when e-filing it, so it was publicly available for about a half-hour. News media has the list. But like good libtards, they won’t start asking her questions about it unless she gets the nomination. If you go to Brodkorb’s website, he’s strongly opposing her.

    Don't mean to pick on you, but I'm sick and tired of reading that Franken somehow stole the election from Coleman. Not at all what happened. Coleman lost the election in 2 ways - (1) ineligible voters who voted; and (2) Minnesota Supreme decision, which ultimately allowed Coleman's legal team to get outmaneuvered by Franken's.

    First is self-explanatory. The second, the Court rules that for the contested ballots, instead of having them formally reviewed, as the statute explicitly requires, they said that Coleman and Franken could review said ballots, and if they agreed they could be counted, they would. Franken's team knew which counties/districts were heavy for them, so they pushed for ballots from these areas to be counted. Coleman's team inexplicably had no clue where their voters are (inside baseball - they didn't see the value in building a good enough database). Consequently when there were disputed ballots in Coleman-leaning areas, Franken's people smartly objected.

    Coleman's legal team were idiots and never should have agreed to do this. That's what cost Coleman the election during the recount.

    Sorry for the tardy reply. Longstanding law dictates that citizens can only sue the government pursuant to an explicit statute authorizing the lawsuit. Keep in mind that this case, the issue is not whether the Sheriffs can sue, but in what capacity - from what I read, they can sue as individuals, but not as elected officials (i.e., their office).

    Without having read the opinion, I respectfully disagree with your viewpoints. I'm going to presume that the law only allows individuals standing to sue. An elected official is not an "individual" under the law. I have some experience with this - I am an elected official and tried to initiate a lawsuit with my elected office as the Plaintiff. Judge tossed it - rightly - because the statute under which we were operating only allowed individuals to initiate the lawsuit. I see parallels here.

    So while federal judges engage in outrageous political acts on a seemingly daily basis, I don't believe this decision should be lumped in with those. Remember that the law can be very nuanced.

    I never made any comments about myself. I am very close to former staffers who helped get him elected to Congress, and then abandoned him after he wouldn't keep his dick in his pants. The two people running against him for the GOP Senate nomination in 1994 were staffed by people who quit working for him - not only because of his moral indiscretions, but also because he was not a "true conservative." His ego also prevented his former congressional district from becoming a solid Republican district because he left after one term (now in DFL Peterson's hands). And he was such a lightweight that he let that jackass Dayton beat him to lose the Senate seat after one term.

    Stop being preening morons and listen to someone who happens to know more about the man than either of you. While it is too bad that he died a horrible death, he does not deserve to be lionized.

    What does "salting the thread" mean? Presuming that's a negative connotation, let me expound. If you're referring to Sarah Palin has been so thoroughly trashed by the media (and assisted by RINOS on our side) that it will be near impossible for anyone low information voter to be persuaded to support her at this point. However, if she were to become a U.S. Senator, she could build up a record of public service that could overcome the smearing.

    If you're referring to Dan Quayle, Quayle was a very good U.S. Senator who, like Palin, was tapped on the shoulder too early. He made unfortunate gaffes that allowed him to be depicted as a dunce. From the V.P. chair, not a lot that can be done to overcome that. After leaving office, he could have easily become governor of Indiana or Arizona, but chose not to do that. When he ran for the nomination in 1996, he was considered a joke candidate.

    Both need to re-build their political reputations to overcome (false) media narratives about them. Where am I wrong?

    Actually, in hindsight it was a mistake for Sarah Palin to be on the ticket in 2008. If she had been allowed to remain Alaska governor, she would have easily won a second term, and had built up an outstanding record on fiscal and energy policy, as well as government reform. And if she had spent a lot of time preparing herself for national issues (which she had not done), she would have walked away with the GOP nomination in 2012 and kicked Obama's ass in the election. She was the conservative Godsend we were hoping for.

    Instead, she got thrust upon the national scene before she was entirely ready, and then the scumbag liberals exploited Alaska's ethics laws which require a public official to pay for their own legal defense bills, essentially forcing her from office (will also acknowledge that the large sums of money being thrown at her in conjunction with this helped make the decision to resign; doubt she would have resigned just on the money alone). Like Dan Quayle, unless she seeks lower political office to rehabilitate herself politically, she will never be a credible presidential candidate.

    What a tragic loss for our nation.

    The biggest problem with casting Batman that Hollywood seems to overlook is that Batman is supposed to be an uber-confident badass who even a mortal god like Superman respects. Quite frankly, I don't think even Bale measured up, even though the fighting skills were spot on. I don't know if Affleck will be able to pull it off, but I'll be rooting for him - otherwise it's another 20 years before it'll be attempted again.

    For Superman it's the same thing - he must be portrayed having leadership qualities that other super-powered beings would want to look up to and follow. Earnest, but a warrior. Chris Reeve definitely could have pulled it off. I think Cavill could - hopefully the next movie will be set a few years in the future. One of the aspects I did not like about MOS was his (and the other Kryptonians) ability to adapt and use their newly discovered powers.

    The best depiction of Batman/Superman is the JLA animated shows. Just follow that

    I've made this point before: the worst things for conservatives was Palin's selection as VP nominee in 2008. If left alone, she would have built up an exemplary record as governor (particularly on energy issues) and easily won re-election. She would have been left alone, free from having to spend the time and effort defending herself against the phony ethics charges that ultimately chased her from office, and presumably/hopefully bulked up her knowledge on national issues that she seemed ill-equipped and unprepared to handle in 2008. She would have then been in prime shape to run in 2012, easily crushing Romney, Gingrich, etc. in the primaries, and then relentlessly attacked Obamacare in the general election. Think Sarah Palin would have backed off Benghazi? She would have been our generation's Reagan - the conservative star to step in when the country was in dire financial (and moral) straits and righted the ship.

    Manslaughter is a lesser included offense of 2nd Degree Murder. In other words, the same elements needed to find someone guilty of Manslaughter are very similar to those of 2nd Degree Murder (the homicide charge requiring intent, whereas manslaughter involves recklessness). It is very common. That’s why defense attorney West went nuts when the State tried to include 3rd Degree Murder - homicide while committing child abuse. Those elements are completely different than the elements of 2nd Degree Murder, and the case was never about that. Defense attorneys are presumed to be aware of lesser included offenses, and 90% of the time it is they who call for it, in the hopes of getting their clients a lesser conviction.

    Let me try to flesh it out more for you. Under Alaska law, a private citizen is allowed to make an ethics complaint against a public official. The public official then must use their own money to hire lawyers/investigators to defend themselves against the ethics charges. Once Palin became prominent, the bastard Democrats began filing frivolous ethics charges against, causing Palin to (a) incur a ton of legal fees and (b) have to spend a lot of time gathering documents and otherwise defending herself.

    It's really quite a shame. If McCain hadn't selected her as his V.P. candidate, Palin could have worked away under the radar and no doubt built up an impressive record. After winning re-election in 2010, she could have started to lay a foundation for a campaign, and - key here - spent the proper amount of time necessary to become knowledgeable on federal/national issues. Under this scenario, she would/could have been our Reagan in 2012 and swept Obama out of office. Very sad.

    I think I misread your post for believing that a federal prosecution of Zimmerman is more likely than not. Even with this racist, politicized administration, they still have to have some evidence that of a civil rights violation beyond the shooter being Hispanic and the dead guy being black. In Rodney King, there was no self-defense claim, the beating was extended, several cops were standing around and watching the beating making it look like party, King claimed to have received racist taunts/comments, and it took the cops over 80 minutes to get to hospital with King claiming he was shown off like a trophy. So there were enough colorable allegation in the King case for charges to be brought (the truth is another issue; don’t remember enough to comment further). As you state, there is absolutely nothing here in the Zimmerman case.

    I know. I respond mainly for newer people coming to the thread. Simply an example of why our country is going down hill so fast.

    This case really isn't even a close call, with the 911 call and Zimmerman's injuries. It's just like the Rodney King case, where the L.A. prosecutors overreached for what was essentially an attempted murder charge instead of aggravated assault. If the prosecutors believed Zimmerman did something wrong, then put forward a manslaughter charge, where his alleged negligent actions would be given weight in determining whether he was guilty. and his self-defense claims would be given greater scrutiny.

    I disagree with both of you. For the feds to get involved, they need to prove a civil rights violation. Not only is there is absolutely no evidence in this case that Zimmerman targeted Martin because he was black (he was a stranger in his community, he was walking between homes while raining, he was a punk, etc.), but with Zimmerman's background with people of other races, particularly his leading the protest of the black homeless man the cops allegedly abused, they'd be fools to try.

    The L.A. cops in the Rodney King situation not only had evidence of abuse (although they were swinging the clubs to break bone - leg and arm - because their previous training to put it across the neck resulted in a death), but cops using racial pejoritives, not taking King to the hospital for a substantial period of time, etc.

    No. I gave you three substantive posts demonstrating what I perceive to be your errors, and invited you to point out where I was in error. Instead of responding to me, or trying to refute your errors that I pointed out (i.e., the 911 Dispatcher did not tell Zimmerman to stay in the car, there is no evidence that Zimmerman confronted Martin, etc.), you continue to repeat the same crap to others. When you don't respond to substantive criticism and repeat the same crap, you're trolling, jackass, and you deserve all the invective you get.

    Yes, I do think very highly of myself. I am great, hence my name.

    No, you haven't listened to the 911 call. Here is the transcript: http://bizsecurity.about.com/od/creatingpolicies/a/A-Transcript-Of-The-George-Zimmerman-Police-Call.htm.

    You are a f---ing liar. Go away, troll.

    Agreed. The fact that he is ignoring me, yet continuing to spew the same nonesense is proof enough.

    "The dispatcher told him not to get out of the car."

    That is simply not true. The 911 tape clearly shows that Zimmerman says, "He's running," and you then hear him exiting the vehicle. After a few seconds where you can hear the wind, indicating Zimmerman walking fast or running, you hear the Dispatcher asked Zimmerman if he was following him (Martin). Zimmermans says he is, and the Dispatcher then says, "Okay. We don't need you do that." Zimmerman then says, "Okay." (Zimmerman later stated that at this point he starts walking back to his vehicle where he's confronted by Martin along the way) At trial, the Dispatcher stated that his words were only a suggestion, not a command, as they are not allowed to order people what to do for liability purposes.

    You're starting to make me think that you're not letting the facts get in the way of your bias. Please prove me wrong.

    You keep making the assertion that Zimmerman confronted Martin. There is no evidence to support this. What we know is that Zimmerman exited his vehicle to see where Martin was headed, then Martin started running and Zimmerman lost track of him. When the Dispatcher told Zimmerman "we don't you to (follow him)," Zimmerman says, "Okay." That's all undisputed fact.

    From there, based upon what has been reported in the media and so far at trial, we can infer the following: If Martin were running, that means he's running home. So if Zimmerman followed Martin, that means he's heading towards Martin's residence. But from what we know, based upon Zimmerman's statements and trial testimony, is that the confrontation between them took place near Zimmerman's vehicle, not towards Martin's residence. That lends credence to Zimmerman's statements that as he's walking back to his vehicle, Martin jumped out of the shadows and asked why he was following him, meaning Martin confronted him.

    I am interested in knowing what evidence/logic informs you that something other than this happened.

    I will agree with you that it is unfortunate that Zimmerman left his vehicle. But as the trainer for the Neighborhood Watch program stated, they train people to follow suspects, not confront them. It appears that Zimmerman did not get out of his vehicle because he was looking for a confrontation, but because he was trying to see where Martin was running so he could tell the police. Again, it appears that he lost sight of him, then was confronted by Martin as he walked back to his vehicle. If these facts bear out (and as stated before, I'm interested in knowing why you think the facts would not bear this out) then I can see no wrongdoing from Zimmerman.

    Nightline has done two segments on polygamous relationships since March. In lockstep to continue this insanity towards pre-Biblical days of anything goes. Which worked out really well for women, by the way. Bastards.

    The 911 call absolutely comes in, no question about it. The issue is whether there will be any expert testimony allowed about it. Zimmerman's team is trying (apparently successfully) to demonstrate that the state's witness is crap, and therefore prevent his testimony. It's one thing to allow the call to be played and then argue who was doing what. But to have an expert witness then get up and say, "In my profession opinion, to a reasonable degree of scientific certainty, that voice is Martin," is completely different. Then becomes a battle of the experts and Zimmerman's team calling their own experts.

    Based on the facts as reported so far, it would be much easier for O'Mara to argue that it's Zimmerman's voice we hear based upon a totality of the circumstances (911 call shows Zimmerman was walking back to his vehicle, Martin confronted Zimmerman instead of running home, and Zimmerman's wounds) than it is to try to counter an expert witness' opinion, even if you get your own expert witness opinion on the stand.
