    @oldhat - aw, god damn. I didn't know Janine Turner was a bible thumping conservative. What a bummer. I wish I didn't know that.

    William, Yeah, she supported Sarah Palin, even.

    What's bugging me is all the people who claim to be Christian saying horrible things like "I hope Obama's daughters get gang-raped by Muslims" etc. That's really not the Christianity I know and to spew so much hate when at the same time claiming to be a part of a religion based of love is....eh.

    Nothing against Christianity, but more against a certain group of Christians (a distinction I think a lot of atheists can't make, but that's another talk).

    I was raised in a conservative Christian household, and have friends and family of that sort, so on some level I get majorly pissed off at the people-hating, planet-raping turds who use those labels, on behalf of the decent people who actually follow the teachings of Jesus and try to manage the earth cautiously and responsibly. Then I remind myself that I don't use those labels myself anymore, so I let it go.

    On the subject of all the surprisingly progressive elections: New Hampshire just elected a transgender woman to their state legislature. That's pretty freaking cool.

    I would love to know why God didn't intervene and keep all these LGBTQ folks out of office. I mean, as others have said, nothing against Christianity as a whole but if these hard-core fundamentalist folks truly believe God sways elections, isn't it conceivable that maybe God is on the side of the progressives? Isn't that what this election should suggest?

    The double-think involved there is fascinating.

    Resurrecting this post (way at the bottom of the page) one last time!

    On 1/05, Si asked us to call the election. I said Obama beats Romney, taking 60% of the popular vote. Actual total- 50% Obama, 48% Romney. So much for phenomenal psychic powers. :(

    It is fantastically unbelievable that the Republicans are calculating returns-on-investment for political donations.
    'Hrm, let's see, projected tax cut would've been ... minus cost of forming new lobbying group ... plus the price I saved on a victory party ticket ... '

    I hope some idiot actually sues a candidate (or Rove) for damages. Then maybe you guys can take the opportunity to illustrate the difference between 'donation' and 'investment.'
