"Data Mining" Would be Such a Good Name[edit]

But it already means something else. We need a name for the analog of quote mining where you present obsolete data to prove your point, the current data being quite different. Consider Is the popularity of Richard Dawkins plunging despite having mainstream media approval?img Supported by an old Alexa chartimg. Today's data look quite different.

Isn't it just a form of cherry picking?

"Senselessly divisive question"?[edit]

Sure Andyimg, because god knows it's best not to find out what the candidates actually think on an issue. Debates should be about which candidate has the best hair, and says the meanest things about Obama. That's what you're looking for in a president, right? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:06, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Isn't it cute that they pull in a tame audience to watch these things.

Obama's Plot to Neutralize Our Military Exposed[edit]

"Irrefutable proof the Obama Administration and liberal military commanders are making the U.S. military less combat ready"img. Obama FDR has let women serve in the military. I mean, under Obama Bush the Pentagon created a program to get recent mothers back in shape. I mean, Obama command let male medics lead the classes. I mean, Obama somebody thought it would be a good idea for some of those males to know what their students might experience. This is what happens when you put the Antichrist in charge of the military! Whoover (talk) 17:36, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Well, you gotta admit, it sounds pretty odd. Whether it's sensible or not, I've no idea, but damn, that's weird. Must be Obama. Phiwum (talk) 20:09, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Terry on Intelligence[edit]

Terry's latest columnimg, on why, despite studies showing the contrary, conservatives are really smarter than liberals.

Okay, I'm not going to dispute his issues with the studies; I'm just going to go after one of his points -- that liberals lack "common sense".

You know who used to make that same argument, Terry? The bullies who picked on me middle school. They knew I was smarter than they were, but they tried to make themselves feel better about their stupidity -- and they were stupid -- by convincing themselves they had "common sense".

What they meant was "I know I've got a life of working dead end jobs while you're going to have a great career, but at least I know how to {insert manual task}." (Imagine that said in a redneck accent.) One of them was quite proud of the fact he intended to join the KKK when he was old enough.

So, Terry, you're in good company. In all honesty, I have no idea what happened to said bullies. But I have little doubt most of them are complete losers. So you're in company with them in that, too. MDB (talk) 17:59, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Satoshi Kanazawa? Make it stop, please! Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 18:07, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
I think conservative culture has problems similar to those that plague black culture. Typically they are from poorer areas and they seem to have a mentality that it's not cool (or even useful) to be book smart. Occasionaluse (talk) 18:08, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
(ec x 3)Given the monumental stupidity Terry shows in the comments section of his blog (not to mention the main posts) I would think he's the last person to comment on intelligence. And yes Terry, we lack common sense. Which is why don't believe in an invisible Sky Daddy. --PsyGremlinПоговорите! 18:12, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, as soon as I saw "Terry on intelligence" my first thought was "Not exactly a subject matter expert." --Fergus Mason (talk) 18:23, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
Weird, I actually agree with Terry on this, except for the red-baiting (we spent a whole week on the dictatorship of the proletariat in neuroscience 101!) and part about "common sense," a term just as ill-defined if not more than "intelligence." Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 18:33, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
The real issue I have with this is not the challenges Terry brings up with the original research, it is his assertions later that liberals "lack common sense" as well as the claim that liberals live shorter lives, have more trouble managing their lives, and are unhappy in comparison to conservatives, without showing a shred of evidence or data to backup these assertions. He also states in a roundabout way that if you are intelligent you should be rich, assuming everyone's greatest goal is the materialistic accumulation of wealth (should be noted there is no indication that Terry himself is wealthy to any real degree).--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 19:22, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
Isn't Terry's dismissal of the contrary evidence an example of cognitive dissonance, which in itself is probably evidence of lower intelligence. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science.Moderator 11:04, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Good work, Psyimg. There's no tale that sounds too unlikely for Kendoll to accept. Nor apparently does he pay attention to what went on in the past at Conservapedia. Where's TK when you need him? Oh... yeah. Right. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 00:36, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

OMG! Kotomi rises from the grave to grace CP's main page once more. Beautiful. That's been sitting on the QE page since December and I can also confirm that most of those other testimonies are as fake as hers. And to answer the e-mail question: yes.

Tiger Woods[edit]

Should Tiger become a christian? I fail to see how that would help. Then again, I've been saying he should go back to banging 12 skanks at a time, so who knows?--ThunderstruckYOU'VE BEEN... 15:18, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

I love the suggestion. "Hey, just give believing all this shit a try and see how it works out." Only religion could come up with such cockamamie schemes. Occasionaluse (talk) 15:34, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
Let's see, he became the world's greatest golfer without the help of Christianity, so surely logic dictates that now that's he's hit a rough patch Christianity is just the thing, right? Even using the most twisted form of logic, the only conclusion you can draw concerning religion is that other golfers ought to convert to Buddhism, at least for a few years. Turpis 3:16 (talk) 15:50, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
The takeaway here is that you need to fuck anything with a hole in it and generally do whatever you want or you'll end up a pathetic overeducated crank or a mentally ill creep. When you hit a rough spot you look at your pile of money and life of leisure, go volunteer and donate, keep enjoying your junk, maybe buy another wife when you'll feel like it. He's doing fine. I'll follow my dick, thank you very much Nutty Rouxnever mind 16:08, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
I'm not aware of any top athletes who succeeded after converting to Christianity, so I think he should take after Cassius Clay and convert to Islam. Occasionaluse (talk) 17:41, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
I love the implication that converting to Christianity will somehow increase golf skill. Just... what? Also, how do you "try Christianity"? Do you go all "Okay, I'll believe in God for a few weeks and see how it works out?" Here's a newsflash: RELIGION IS NOT SOME NEW SHAMPOO YOU CAN JUST TRY. --Sid (talk) 19:46, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

How is golf stressful? You walk around a field for a few hours, occasionally thwack a ball with your mashie nibblick and then collect a cheque for a million bucks. It's pretty much the same as wandering around the countryside, except occasionally some random people give you a round of applause for it. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 21:49, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
Thats why I said "Golf is only stressfull if you are going in stressed." Maybe outside of golf, tiger wasn't getting any, and it was driving him nuts. Blue balls is a hell of a distraction in anything.--ThunderstruckYOU'VE BEEN... 22:09, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
Tiger should try Raelianism. --Opcn (with regards to regarding my regardliness) 22:22, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
You must be fucking joking, it's stressful as hell! You walk about walloping a bloody ball that refuses to go anywhere near the right direction and believe me there are umpteen bloody ways that you lose one of those little sods. Best shot of my life was when I once stood on the fourth tee at my local golf course, unlimbered the old 4-wood and then walloped it one. It soared up like an eagle, followed by my cry of "Jesus!", flew straight over a 50-foot tall oak tree and then vanished straight into someone's back garden, to be lost forever. An hour later I lost five balls trying to pitch one over a 30-foot fucking pond. I came very close to throwing my club in after them. I finally gave up when I went to college in Swansea. There's a links there that has the sea on one side and a main road on the other. I took one look and then started drinking and wenching like a normal person. Darkmind1970 (talk) 22:24, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
Normal people climb in to the golf cart, start her up and then look at each other for a long moment before simultaneously bursting out with "Fuck this shit. Lets go go-karting." If you ever have the urge to actually play golf, you're sick in the head. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:32, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
I was 15 when I started and I'd just been given the family bag of clubs (a mixture of my grandfather's clubs and my father's) so I thought I liked it. I still do like it, although only watching it on TV with beer next to me whilst my wife asks rude questions about Tiger Woods. Darkmind1970 (talk) 22:42, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

Creation Superconference 2012[edit]

In one of his last evasionsimg, Ken linked to the upcoming Superconference 2012img of Creation Ministries International. What a treat:

There will be something for everyone! Supervised activities onsite, free music concerts, powerlifting performances, geology excursions, Q&A panels and more!

Yeah, they got their priorities right: by powerlifting they will overcome the pesky arguments of these atheistic weaklings!

And look at the nice picture of this happy family, with all the captions: Daddy: „My faith is strengthened. I am now confident in what I believe” - „[My family] enjoyed the camp very much indeed. The presentations were interesting, informative, even eye opening. All presenters are to be congratulated.” - „The children's program was a big bonus. We look forward to our children participating in the next one!”

And the family should know: they took the effort to visit CMI's circus coming from Bedford, Bedfordshire, UK - where they earn a living as tooth-modelsimg. This must be hard, doing so in England!

Meh, you're giving Kenny unmerited attention; should be ignored until he does something actually creative or doesn't cower from debate in his bunny hole.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 09:01, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
That's not about Ken. That's about CMI not being able to present an actual family which has visited one of their conferences. larronsicut fur in nocte 09:11, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
And probably infringing copyright to boot. But that's a good point - they haven't got a single picture of a family attending a previous gathering. So they resort to theft? Very Christian of them. --PsyGremlinTala! 09:18, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
CMI has money, they can buy photo rights, it's not like they are trying to put together research budgets or anything... --Opcn (with regards to regarding my regardliness) 10:15, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, it's probably just a generic stock photo they bought the rights for. Of course, this means that this family likely never attended, making these endorsements likely fake, too. (To be fair, it's typical marketing, so fake testimonies and photos aren't exactly unique to CMI.) --Sid (talk) 10:20, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
After 5 days of creationists jabbering at me, I'd believe anything they say just so they'd let me go. It's an incredibly thin programme to be spread over a week though, it's almost like creationists don't have anything beyond their regular routine of spreading FUD about evolution. Certainly nothing like the esoterica any real science conference would devolve in to if you gave it five days. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 10:39, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

I'd think that they payed the royalties: It seems to be taken from here - that's at least the picture of the attendees in the brochure. "Happy business people" larronsicut fur in nocte 10:41, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

I think it's great that a conference with thirteen speakers and twenty presentations is called a "Superconference". My, what a large production! They probably bought bagels and everything! Phiwum (talk) 12:14, 24 February 2012 (UTC)
I see that they plan to go on some "geology excursions". Now these are places like Chimney Rock State Park whose own web site states "It took more than half a billion years to make Chimney Rock!".

Theoretical Physics vs. Iron Age Text[edit]

More Biblical Scientific Foreknowledge from Andyimg....

Impossibility of a Grand Unified Theory Billions of dollars and millions of hours have been wasted by atheists in futile pursuit of a "grand unified theory" for physics. But Genesis explains that the creation of light was done in a separate, initial creation, free of darkness or entropy, and thus incapable of unification with matter.

Stupid atheists spending time and money on scientific research when you should be blindly following an ancient text. --Night Jaguar (talk) 01:57, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Incompleteness theorems may come into play on Andy's side in this one. Once again, Andy may be right in spite of himself. --12:18, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
Huh? Incompleteness theorems seem utterly irrelevant to physical theories, near as I can figger. Oh, it could be that Andy is right simply because the physical universe cannot be described by a GUT, but incompleteness theorems like Goedel's got nothing at all to do with that. Mathematical provability and aptness of scientific theories are two very different things. Phiwum (talk) 12:26, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
I think the point with incompleteness theorems may have been related to the idea that, even if someone comes up with a GUT that seems to describe everything, we can't be sure that the universe really works that way because there are infinite other mathematical formulations that could produce results consistent with what we see. Though that's apparently not what Andy was saying. (talk) 19:40, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
I'm kinda surprised that this is a "proof" of the impossiblity of GUT; it reads like a denial of relativity: light can't be unified with matter. Why isn't it another counterexample to relativity? It's as strong as the solenoid one. Whoover (talk) 19:57, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Everyone knows W and Z bosons are just made up by liberal, atheists, baby-eatin' so-called "scientists", just like neutrinos! Unless these bosons also can be used for a counterexample to relativity? Ehh? Ehh? *Nudge* *Nudge* Say that they are, and Saint Andy, the keymaster to all things legitimate in physics will bless them into true conservative science with open arms!

You're (and Andy) having the misreading problem. The nurses orders are that "no one was allowed to remove newborns from the maternity unit without permission from a medical authority or a discharge order." In other words, it's an instruction from the hospital to the nurses. Plus, in a ward, the nurses' word is law, especially one like maternity. So if some uppity Fox reporter wants to do whatever the hell he likes, then they can take him down. Then again, it was in a stinking socialist public hospital, which was probably paid for by atheists, so the only reason the nurses wanted to keep the baby there, was so they could eat it later. --PsyGremlinПоговорите! 15:10, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Sadly, I have to agree with Andy here, for different reasons. Neither hospitals nor nurses, nor doctors have the right to "order" you not to take your self, or your child out of the hospital at any time. You may be going AMA, but 'policy" does not trump your right to make your own medical choices. Pink mowse.pngGodotGrow a vagina 16:45, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
But remember, this is a maternity ward, they have stricter rules (or at least ours do) plus they didn't recognise him as the baby's father. They had every right to stop somebody they didn't recognise, carrying a baby and without the necessary permissions. I suppose if the baby was kidnapped from the ward, we'd all be yelling at the nurses for not doing anything? --PsyGremlinPrata! 17:01, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Yes, Obama knew the bibles were being burned, but the decision was made by COMISAF. The real question is, why wasn't the chaplain who brought the bibles into theatre court-martialed?

Yes, you're spelling his name right and a Best Actor win for Jean Dujardin was certainly not a surprise to anyone, not even Dujardin himself, genuinely delighted though he obviously was in his acceptance speech. But since when has anyhting that's been going on in the real world had any relation to what's going on inside Andy's head? --Spud (talk) 07:45, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Just to be completely clear on this, he predicted George Clooney would win because liberals, then Jean Dujardin wins because liberals? Somewhere, there is a psychology student trying to kidnap Andy for use as a case study. --Veni Vidi.png Feci.png 08:05, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Let's face it, whatever the outcome, Andy would make some political point out of it. If he doesn't agree with the result, it's because liberals; if he does agree then it's a triumph for conservatism; if he's ambivalent, then he tosses a mental coin and goes with that. I think that last year the King's Speech could have gone 'because liberals' if he'd decided it was a British triumph.  Lily Inspirate me. 10:41, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

At the risk of feeding the troll, I will say this. Jean Dujardin is a man. "Jean" is a French man's name.

Jesus fuck[edit]

I've not been on CP for a while other than to check my clickbot's progress (as I was thoroughly bored with the antics over there) but I swung by today and found the wonderful section entitled Examples of Liberal Math. Whilst talking about fucking maths, Andy states that "A liberal claims to know almost everything. A conservative recognizes that the liberal actually knows almost nothing of value". Those who watch CP regularly become desensitised to just how fucking crazy the Assfly is, (and how easily the parodists yank his strings) so returning after a CP sabbatical I feel like I did when I first discovered the madness. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 14:26, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Andy, the man who knows everything about everything, claims that "a liberal claims to know almost everything." Oh wait... I suppose there is a subtle differene. We know almost everything. Andy knows everything - including what the Bible is supposed to say.
Facepalm--PsyGremlin講話 14:40, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
This is one of my favorite bits of Andy insanity. If there's any field of human knowledge that almost has to be unpolitical (in a liberal vs. conservative sense -- I'm sure there's plenty of academic politics), it's math. There's just nothing political about it -- it's pure fact.
And note Andy just added this gem -- that engineering is probably the "most immune to liberal bias". (Oddly enough, his undergrad field.)
Okay, as a fellow electrical engineer, I'll grant engineering is less political than lots of fields of study. I don't think I can remember any of my professors getting political in class. (We might have chatted about politics with the friendlier ones "off-line", but that's different.) But as much engineering work is done for the government, engineers are going to be pre-disposed to support large government spending, especially for Defense. And pretty much any aerospace engineer is going to love the space program.
Plus, you can get into the ethics of doing defense work, a big deal for a wide range of engineering disciplines. MDB (talk) 14:58, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

CP proven right about Jeb![edit]

Conservapedia is proven right about Jeb Bush entering the race! And by that Andy means a crazy woman said it might happenimg. Oh and his citation says this as well:

The conservative author, who is supporting former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, said that a Jeb Bush candidacy would be a disaster. "I think on closer examination, Jeb Bush would be the worst of all candidates to run, for one thing," said Coulter. "We don't need another Bush. That would be embarrassing to the Republican Party."

Embarrassing to Republican Party, unlike the candidacy of Perry, Bachmann, or Cain. Maybe "proven right" isn't meant to be "shown to be correct" but "shown to be a right-wing idiot". --Night Jaguar (talk) 16:50, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

The fact that he likes anything Coulter might say is unsurprising, but I'm a little shocked that he considers her conservative enough given some of the stopped-clock statements she's made in the past. On the other hand, she is kind of like his mom in her vitriol, and significantly hawter...still, my guess is a revert is pending.

New online chocolate teapot for creationists[edit]

There's a spectacular piece of wilful creationist ignorance on MPL today: "CMI is excited to announce Genesis Verse-by-Verse, a new Bible study tool ... blah blah blah ... answer your questions about the Bible ... blah blah blah ... quickly find relevant information that supports the historicity of the Genesis text." (Who writes this tosh? Kenny boy...?) Then it continues, "Of course, atheists and Darwinists are too primitive in their thinking to create a database management system tool to counter CMI's Genesis Verse-by-verse. [Omit gratuitous abuse of R.Dawkins] No doubt a clunky website that lacks something as powerful as Genesis verse-by-verse ... blah blah blah."

So let's start with the entire research effort to discover the evolutionary record of life. As shown by non-primitive web projects like Tree of Life. Well, that would require creationists to read, perhaps even to think. Mr Gently Benevolent (talk) 23:48, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Oh hey that's great! You just commented to point out the idiocy of a dishonest and profoundly mentally ill religious zealot talking obvious rubbish. And you found an awesome site to counter said dishonest and profoundly mentally religious zealot's obviously silly factual claim about "Darwinists" and their "clunky website." I know you struggled to come up with something so relevant. You're very cool! Nutty Rouxnever mind 23:54, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Sadly, as cool as that is, it's not relevant. They will call the clodograms "baramins," maybe argue with a bit of placement but say "yep, that's what God did, all right." They would want a "database" (really an index of propaganda) that organizes, what?, to prove evolution. You probably wouldn't want to start with Genesis. But whatever you started with, it wouldn't matter. Let's say it was thousands of fossils of transitional forms. Their response would be "La la la la. I can't hear you. By the way, no fossil of a transitional form has ever been found." They're trolls. Look the other way. Whoover (talk) 00:05, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Credentials are for elitists except when you're Dr. Don Batten, Dr. Carl Weiland, and Dr. Jonathan Sarfati, in which case they're why you're qualified to authoritatively pronounce on whatever the fuck you feel like even if it's outside your field (mission from god and all that). I'm sorry but I just spit out a little beer when I saw "hebrew scholar," as if the mere existence of even a "single hebrew scholar" anywhere in the galaxy could conceivably have any bearing on how these guys read Genesis. Prosh. You're talking about CMI. As a group, they're just barely above the likes of that Paluxy Tracks clown and Kent Hovind on their worst days.

Andy versus Facebook, part umpty-seven[edit]

Really, Andy...

Facebook is a glorified means of communication, nothing more. The face someone posted disturbing messages on it before committing a horrific act does not make it evil, any more than the phone is evil if someone uses it to make a bomb threat. (Actually, I have little doubt that if Andy lived a hundred years ago, he'd be penning angry letters to the editor complaining about the telephone.)

And the cp:lamestream media "continue[s] to protect Facebook"? CNN mentions it. You don't get much more "lamestream" than CNN. MDB (talk) 13:39, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Lamestream. God damn it, andy needs to stop acting 5 years old.--ThunderstruckYOU'VE BEEN... 13:58, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

I enjoy the fact that every time Andy claims the mainstream media is "oppressing" the truth or protecting some organization or company he doesn't like, the source link he provides is either inevitably some mainstream news site, or can be found on some mainstream news site at the same time.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 14:55, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Anyway, that silly old lamestream media is focusing on complete irrelevancies like a possible history of violence in the alleged gunman's family, not the all-important fact he used Facebook.
Seriously, though, at this point saying that a teenager who does something horrible used Facebook is about as relevant as pointing out he drank sodas or watched television. It's so common among teenagers it would be more notable if he didn't. MDB (talk) 17:10, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

That's what comes back to you if you teach your children to act on what they think and don't let themselves be forced into stuff they don't want to do, at some they are going to give you the finger and go "Fuck you all! I'm outa here." But, hey than you can still say that kid just has to do it because you really, really want him to. God, I fucking hate my relatives… --ʤɱ secularist 19:22, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
"If Richard Dawkins is truly is an agnostic (and not merely be the God hater many Christians know he is)" <-- It's nice to see that Andy lets blatant idiocy like this remain on the main page. --Sid (talk) 17:10, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I can't figure out how someone might think hating God is more plausible than being agnostic. Okay, Conservative's obviously deranged, but still: "That all-powerful, divine creator of all there is? The loving, all-good being? Man, he just gets under my skin. What an asshole.

Feh, it doesn't matter if it's plausible. The Bible says so, so it's true. I've often wanted atheists who talk to Ray Comfort in person to tell him flat out they don't believe in god, and then ask him if he thinks they're lying. I'm never entirely sure if the atheists hate god spiel is something these guys really believe or just something they tell each other so they can feel more secure in their own faith. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:51, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Its sad that they cannot understand what agnostic atheism is and how it isn't a contradiction in terms. Yet again they probably do understand but are using the public's ignorance on what it really means in order to push the false idea everyone is not only a secret theist but a secret Christian theist.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 20:40, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Yeah, CP inconsistencies are a dime a dozen, but...[edit]

It's bad to "declare" a winner early, though making predictions is okay. Oh, and kudos to CP for declaring the winner early in two primaries.

I know this hypocrisy has been obvious from the start, but at least he pretended that CP predicts, so that's better than the other folks who "declare". But he plumb forgot this distinction on the CP-proven-right page.

Of course, given his nonsense that Wiles's proof of FLT is liberal, while Goedel's incompleteness proofs were a conservative rejoinder to Russell (usually, people regard Goedel's theorems as more directly related to Hilbert's program), this is a kinda dull observation. Phiwum (talk) 15:49, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

The best thing about this? Three weeks ago Santorum was RINO, today he is new Saint Conservative™. But it's all just a preview for Romney. --ʤɱ federalist 19:03, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Speaking of which, this made me smirk today:
The weird thing is Andy really thinks we're all for Romney because he's a RINO liberal with no chance to beat Obama, while we're all laughing our arses off that Santorum (who really is as electable as herpes) could possibly be the nominee. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:24, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Really -- the Obama campaign staff has to be practically drooling over the prospect of Santorum getting the nomination. Obama could approach a 60%-40% win. MDB (talk) 20:31, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
I would call that estimate conservative. I'm also reminded of this:
-- Seth Peck (talk) 20:46, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
From what I've read, political scientists say 60-40 is about the biggest swing you'll see in a remotely competitive election. Even Reagan in 1984 didn't beat 60% (he got 58.8), and that's widely regarded as the apex of modern landslides. MDB (talk) 23:23, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Anything is possible in our current political climate. I did not think it was even remotely possible that W. could be re-elected in the U.S., and yet it happened.

Latest reports out of MI say that 10% UPDATE:FORTY-ONE PERCENT of the people voting today were registered Democrats (or independents), and, if my MI tribe is any indication, they ALL voted for Santorum, so if it's really tight, Andy will be right, but with an asterisk. -- Chilling with a Red Stripe in Kingston.

What Andy Hears: Blah Blah Blah Blah Bullied Blah Blah Blah[edit]

Andy: He posted a chilling rant on Facebook two months ago, but the lamestream media try to portray him as victim of bullying instead.img

Actual citation: 27 paragraphs of stuff, followed by

"FBI officials would not comment on a motive. But 15-year-old Danny Komertz, who witnessed the shooting, said the gunman was known as an outcast who had apparently been bullied."

"Other students disagreed that the student was a victim of bullying or an outcast, saying he was just quiet."

Seeing someone referred to as a facebook user in this context is so ridiculous I have to chuckle, which almost makes me feel a little bad. "The death toll tragically rises to 3 from the murderous rampage by the Facebook user". I'm just trying to think of all the things you could substitute for "facebook user". "pants wearer". "hand washer". "music fan". I'm also thinking about Andy meeting Mark Zuckerberg and how long it would take MZ to motion to his bodyguards for help. Occasionaluse (talk) 22:06, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
If anyone needed proof that this whole "lamestream media hiding important info on killer's true motive" is just projection: Andy just deleted information on Anders Behring Breivik being an anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant right-wing extremistimg, which might seem important given that he targeted the country's labour party. He however keeps the fact that the guy played World of Warcraft there. Also, "young mass murders"? The guy was over 30 when he committed the massacre. --Night Jaguar (talk) 22:33, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Ron Paul[edit]

I'm curious as to what Conservapedia's stance on him is. I remember they once called him a "Conservative", even though he has a significant number of liberal supporters and supports things like gay marriage. In fact, what opinion do they have of conservatives in general? Are they also supportive of other fiscal (but not social) Conservatives like Milton Friedman and Karl Rove? I'm really looking for Nobs' response here. I know I can just check this stuff on conservapedia, but since he's like their official representative here, it would be nice to here his opinion. Mr. Anon (talk) 00:53, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

the definition that andy uses for "Conservative" is the same definition just about nobody else uses: completely conservative with not a single "liberal" action ever. Remember; George Orwell was american conservative! --il'Dictator Mikal 00:58, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
I believe they are generally against Ron Paul; Schlafly n' Co. wouldn't support a candidate who is for gay marriage and legalization of drugs. They support conservatives: people without a drop of liberalism. Remember, Lamar Smith became liberal after SOPA.--Colonel Sanders (talk) 01:02, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
I always find the aNti-SOPa stance andy took to be hilarious. --il'Dictator Mikal 01:05, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
I'm not. SOPA protects the elites in the RIAA and the liberal music industry, so of course he would oppose it.--Colonel Sanders (talk) 01:08, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
They like Ron Paul whenever it is political expedient to do so in accordance with their ideology.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 01:06, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Ron Paul is a Libertarian. He ran against Reagan as such in 1984. Libertarians big issue is drug legalization, so I doubt Andy's sympathetic. And I'm not CP's rep here -- in fact, my dispute with CP wp:Stalwarts is sort of the GOP implosion in microcosm. nobsWe Are the 91.6% (still employed)!!!!(88.6% with a realistic Laborforce Participation rate) 01:19, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

There is a kinship there. Andy comes from the isolationist/nativist wing of the party, traditional "America First" (remember mom wrote, Kissinger on the Couch, a critique of Republican Internationalism). Andy fundamentally shares Paul's isolationist foreign policy, perhaps not as extreme as Paul, though. nobsWe Are the 91.6% (still employed)!!!!(88.6% with a realistic Laborforce Participation rate) 02:56, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

I think sometimes Andy's conservatism is more defined for him as not-being-liberal-ism, therefore if liberals are against it a good conservative has to defend it to his last breath. --ʤɱ federalist 14:52, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
I'd agree with that; in the late 1980s, I felt Ronald Reagan & other cp:classical liberals had gone a long way to rehabilitating the word "liberal", as other free market democrats emerged, Boris Yeltsin, for example. I was in favor of branding American liberals as what they were -- "socialists" (albeit, in the US "socialist" caries the connotation "traitor" with it.) I blame the rise of Rush Limbaugh in the late 80s for re-demonizing the term. Andy certainly grew up in a household that probably regarded the term "liberal" worse than "communist" or "socialist", and I don't mean to be factious in saying that. nobsWe Are the 91.6% (still employed)!!!!(88.6% with a realistic Laborforce Participation rate) 18:07, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Funny, in Europe socialist carries "intelligent" with it and liberal/free-marketeer a bit of "naive dreamer". I find it quite ironic that in the US of all place a term derived from the Latin word for freedom carries such notions for some and that in a country that started with a violent revolution "conservative" is much more popular. Ahh, just the little things that make me chuckle. --ʤɱ soviet 21:29, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Conservapedia predicts...[edit]

True Conservative Santorum will defeat evil RINO Romney in Michigan and Conservapedia will be proven right once again!

First of all, Rob, that would never happen. Secondly, since when is the administration named after the chief of staff? I don't recall Emmanuel, Card, or Sununu administrations, do you? In any case, Perry as VP and Palin for State are some of the most ridiculous predictions I've ever heard. Turpis 3:16 (talk) 18:01, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Actually, Perry as Veep might make sense, depending on who gets the nomination. Palin at State... I'm not even convinced she'd want the job. I can see a Republican President making her Secretary of the Interior, perhaps. MDB (talk) 18:13, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
(EC) He was a stalking horse as recently as Florida, where he was trying to give the race to Romney:
"As Conservapedia has long predicted, Rick Santorum continues to be a stalking horse for Mitt Romney, this time in Florida as Santorum criticizes pro-life Newt Gingrich. [91] Over his career, Santorum may have campaigned harder to help pro-abortion candidates than Planned Parenthood has!" (From [ archived breaking news]).
On Jan. 21, we learned, "Santorum, while claiming to be pro-life, has a long history of endorsing and campaigning for pro-abortion candidates, and Santorum may endorse Romney before long in the race." But now, of course, Conservapedia supports (and has always supported) Santorum as a conservative. Phiwum (talk) 17:37, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
And if Newt ever becomes the designated not-Romney again, Santorum will be back to RINOhood so fast we'll all get whiplash. What a strange world it must be inside Andy's head. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:42, 28 February 2012 (UTC)

Some great examples of Andy's delusional thinking on display in this threadimg.

Even Fox News' reality is too liberal for Andyimg. What we really need is a TV channel that reports no facts, just ridiculous opinions like Andy's. Maybe he could be trolled in to getting a public access show?

Andy (Jan. 12img): Santorum, while claiming to be pro-life, has a long history of endorsing and campaigning for pro-abortion candidates, and Santorum may endorse Romney before long in the race.

Andy (Jan. 22img): Over his career, Santorum may have campaigned harder to help pro-abortion candidates than Planned Parenthood has!

Andy (Feb 29img): Endorsed by the pro-life Susan B. Anthony organization, he is currently battling in the 2012 Republican Primary.

Andy is adorable. Cute as the dickens! Phiwum (talk) 04:02, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

He reminds me of my sister. Back when we were kids, we would watch the old Nick game shows like "Legends of the Hidden Temple", and I would root for, say, the green team, and my sister would say "I root for the one who wins". So after the show she can say "See, I told you they would win." Always drove me insane.--ThunderstruckYOU'VE BEEN... 14:12, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

CP proven right[edit]

OK, this page has been bugging me for a while. I mean, I get that Andy's got an ego that is far too big for his own safety and all, but having a page on an (attempted) encyclopedia about times they made predictions that happened to be right is just ridiculous. Does anyone else reckon that setting up a CP proven wrong page on here might not be a bad idea, or would it be one of those projects like Fred Phelps' list of hated things that will never be complete? And also, would it technically count as troll feeding? Last time I checked, Kenny still makes infrequent visits to this site and the last thing we bloody need is for him to be encouraged. --Veni Vidi.png Feci.png 08:03, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Personally, I wouldn't bother since it would indeed be troll-feeding. Andy's "predictions" are either early calls (Relativity and Neutrino speed, Gingrich's victory) insane cherry-picking (the "correlation between atheism and underachievement" based on England's relative performance in a single World Cup), statements without any grasp of cause and effect (Palin, Facebook, King's Speech), or things that were actually proven wrong (frequency of large earthquakes). --Sid (talk) 09:51, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
I don't worry too much. We are the only people outside of Conservapedia who read those pronouncements. Of course any time they are proven wrong, those pronouncements quietly disappear into the nightimg; but we know and we record. I just hope for Andy's sake, that he's been practicing his "Romney is the true conservative!" lines; he is going to need them.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 11:23, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
I don't see Andy taking the "Romney is the true conservative" route. He'll support him over Obama (obviously), but when he loses in the general he'll be ready with "we would have won if we nominated Gingrich!" In fact, I expect we'll see a prediction that Romney will lose the election for being insufficiently conservative, while a true conservative like Gingrich would have beat Obama. When Romney loses this will become another example of being "proven right" (ignoring the fact that Gingrich would have done terribly). Turpis 3:16 (talk) 16:20, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

What then will happen will be one of two things: A Romney victory with Andy crowing about how Conservatism triumphed and that liberals should just "give it up"; or an Obama victory with Andy chucking Romeny under the bus and claiming the RINO establishment prevented the true conservative majority from having their candidate who certain would have won. Andy doesn't know loyalty, he just wants to be painted as the bellwether of conservative thought. As soon as anyone he backed fails in some way, Andy will turn on that person and burn the evidence he once supported them; that is how he rolls.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 17:15, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

If Andy were a consistent man, then the Conservapedia proven wrong page would stay. Right. Phiwum (talk) 19:49, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

BWAHAHAHAHA!!1! Andy: "Conservapedia is repeatedly proven right, and even when its predictions are slightly off the underlying point is still proven true." He then goes off to add an "Explanation" column to the table, rationalizing away the clearly false predictions. If this guy was a fictional character everyone would find him too unbelievable. --Night Jaguar (talk) 21:50, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, so 'Conservapedia proven wrong' remains, but Andy guts it by editing it. Since no one can overrule him, it says what he wants it to say. --Night Jaguar (talk) 21:59, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
Picking A versus actual outcome B is being "slightly off." I love CP logic. Whoover (talk) 22:55, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
Sure it's funny to see a catalog of Andy's incorrect predictions right there on his own blog, but now that he's letting it stay and actually contributing to the page himself, seeing him defend things he obviously got wrong is bringing great bonus lulz. --Tabrcg23 (talk) 04:26, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
I think Andy is going make himself dizzy with all the spinning he's doing. I really love how he went all Princess Bride and claims that Fidel Castro is pretty much "mostly dead". --Inquisitor (talk) 04:51, 1 March 2012 (UTC)

I can't help but think of Baghdad Bob after reading Andy's terrible rationalizations of the clearly false predictions.--Night Jaguar (talk) 23:28, 1 March 2012 (UTC)
The article has turned into the Two-Face of CP: "We here at Conservapedia would like to point out that we can occasionally be wrong NO WE'RE NOT WE'RE JUST RIGHT IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT and we would like to offer this list as a running track record.

There is no amount of evidence that will convince these people Obama was born in America. Its sad that these people hate the preident so much.

JPratt, you could be shown the real birth certificate all day, you have in fact been shown it, and all you'll do is come up with endless excuses why it's a fake, why there's a vast conspiracy to hide the truth, why it should have been your guy in the whitehouse. Reality called, he said that any time you want to come over is fine. Just leave your crazy friends at home. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 15:08, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

But... layers! And why didn't Hussein invite Andy Schlafly (noted expert in birth certificatology) to the White House to examine the document himself? WHAT DOES HE HAVE TO HIDE? --Sid (talk) 17:21, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Some insane sheriff thinks its fake!img, so now birtherism is all official and respectable! A reminder of other things this guy supports--il'Dictator Mikal 02:12, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

Chuckarse coins a phrase[edit]

Hurlbottom is such an arch-birther that it pains him even to address Obama as president. So he now has a neat little phrase "The Man Now Holding Office as President", which can easily be remembered using the acronym TMNHOAPOTUS. Simple, right? OK, maybe not. I guess us scatter brained liberals can save time by calling him The Artist formerly known as Obama. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 14:48, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

It's just racism really. A quick google search shows seven former Presidents of the United States to have at least one foreign-born parent; [3]
  • Andrew Jackson - both parents were Irish,
  • Thomas Jefferson - English mother,
  • James Buchanan - Irish father,
  • Chester A. Arthur - Irish father,
  • Woodrow Wilson - English mother,
  • Herbert Hoover - Canadian mother.
They just can't stand that a (half) black man is in office. We should really feel sorry for the people of the birther movement and just how petty, small minded and racist they really are. Garçoncoffee! 15:04, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Racist, oh dear, I hope this doesn't become public. How embarrassing for conservatives to be called racist by the other side.-- (talk) 15:22, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Has Terry mentioned the guy who's claiming Obama isn't eligible because he's a mulatto? Either even Terry has some standards, or he realizes this just shows what everyone knows anyway -- there is a racist element in the birther crowd. MDB (talk) 15:36, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
My dear BoN, I'm apathetic in self-identifying as "liberal" or "conservative" and claim no allegiance to any "side". I do believe racism to be a driving factor in the anti-Obama birther movement; as I mentioned above, there were seven former (obviously) white presidents with foreign-born parents who suffered no major controversy about their eligibility as president. As far as accusing all conservatives of racism, that would require every conservative to be a birther and vice versa. Garçoncoffee! 16:05, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
I'm not disagreeing that the whole "birther" thing has a bit of racism mixed in with it, but don't try to use those presidents in an argument with actual birthers. Jackson was born in the US before the Constitution was adopted, so he's grandfathered in, just like Jefferson. Wilson and Hoover's mothers became citizens due to various acts of Congress, that did things like declare all women residing in the US and married to citizens as automatic citizens. You might get a little distance out of Arthur. Unless I'm mixed up, Buchanan might be worthwhile too. As I recall, there's some question as to whether or not his father technically became a citizen before James was born, because, well, history doesn't always store all the little details you'd like to use to bury people you hate. Birthers dismiss him as a precedent because, "the weight of the evidence", indicates he was naturalized by some law or treaty or other. When a birther suggests that they can dismiss one theory because there's less credible evidence for it than an alternative, I usually have to lie down. - Ellipsoidal (talk) 16:54, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Hey, two can play at this game. Breitbart is known for faking up pranks, right? So maybe he faked his own death in order to frame CIA agents in the employ of the sinister and enigmatic Obama for his assassination. He'll probably turn up alive and well after the election and resume his normal douchebaggery. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 15:23, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Okay, part of the theory is that Breitbart said he had some "college videos" of Obama.
  1. If every adult who went to college had videos of their school days exposed, no one could ever run for President.
  2. Are these videos kept with the Michelle Obama "whitey" videos that were always just about to surface during the 2008 campaign? Maybe they're nest to the photos of Kitty Dukakis burning the flag.

Meh, you clueless lieberals are to scared, obese and atheistic to accept the truth. Breitbart was in fact being blackmailed by Obama (due to Obama having Breitbart's Collage Videos) into making Real Conservatives look bad, and to prevent Breitbart revealing Obama is really a sleeper agent planted by the British during the war of independence, so Breitbart staged his own death, emailed the truth to Andrew Schlafly, who will now use his lofty position as CEO of the most trusworthy media ever created to spread the truth to the nation, while Breitbart escapes via a sewer line to a beach in Zihuatanejo to spend his remaining days with Morgan Freeman.

It's a simple change of events: The liberal U.S. Airforce flew Elvis to Breitbart's undisclosed location (actually Cheney's basement) in the repaired saucer from Roswell. Elvis flew into a rage because Breitbart wouldn't give him a medal for uncovering the pyramid power that brought down the World Trade Center. Elvis "accidently" hit him with the Arc of the Covenant, and it was all over. Jimaginator (talk) 18:07, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

Ahem. OK, here's what we've got: the Rand Corporation, in conjunction with the saucer people, under the supervision of the reverse vampires, are forcing our parents to go to bed early in a fiendish plot to eliminate the meal of dinner.

It's a shame we'll never know the truth about Breitbart's death - he's being examined by the county coroner from liberal cp:la la land. Undoubtably when the evidence of foul play is discovered, it will just be covered up by liberals. --Tabrcg23 (talk) 23:47, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

I think the biggest surprise from the NPR article was that Breitbart had dinner with Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn several weeks ago. How must that conversation gone? Aboriginal Noise What the ... 00:01, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
The county coroner bit gets worse/better: If he does find something that indicates foul play, CP will use that for "Conservapedia proven right once again!", coupled with the always-hilarious "Liberals finally admit X! What took them so long?" line. --Sid (talk) 00:07, 3 March 2012 (UTC)

He could have still died even being in good health if it was a brain aneurysm or something such as aortic dissection, in either of those cases you could be otherwise very physically healthy and just a bad set of circumstances lead to a fatal result.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 01:23, 3 March 2012 (UTC)
