Election Fraud. Andy and co's next Birther type crusade?[edit]

Im going to call it now that CP and Andy will go on record to try and "prove" that Obama and his muslim brotherhood backers were stuffing ballot boxes, intimidating voters, rigging voting machines etc and will spend the next 4 years demanding impeachment/prosecution. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 06:32, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

It has, unfortunately, become par for the course in the U.S. for the cranks on the losing side in an election to bawl about supposed electoral fraud. Left-wingers have been busily laying the groundwork for claims they could have used had Romney won the election. But since Obama won, we get the wingnut claims instead. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 06:43, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
Andy's currently in denial, avoiding the now and making claims about how "the liberal media is in an inevitable long-term decline"img and "liberal stunts have no long-term significance"img. Hasn't mentioned anything yet about who won. You know he wouldn't be so silent if things turned out differently. Anger is next. Then back to denial and so on. These aren't so much stages of grief as stages of Andy. --Night Jaguar (talk) 07:28, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
Obama in his acceptance speech mentioned the long queues at stations and said 'by the way, we gotta fix that'. You just KNOW that wnd, cp and the likes of the coultergeist will seize on that and distort what he said. For a Brit I am very pleased this morning. Well done US, you have made an old brit proud of you. Oldusgitus (talk) 07:54, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
I also woke up this morning to a feeling of relief. I would like to hope that Obama now has four solid years ahead, with no learning period and no worrying about re-election, to actually make some changes. Unfortunately, the US will probably muddle along in the same polarized fashion. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science.Moderator 09:25, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

inspiration for an article proving liberal bias in mathematics[edit]

Would anyone like to enlarge upon this? 

LIBERAL BIAS IN MATHEMATICS II: WHY THE IRRATIONAL NUMBER SYSTEM IS AN ILLEGITIMATE AND FRAUDULENT LIBERAL CONSTRUCT

ABSTRACT We will show that any mathematical process whatsoever that either posits the reality of irrational numbers or (worse yet) claims to extract true inferences from them is demonstrably false. The field of irrational number theory is revealed as a house of cards- a fundamentally flawed liberal invention. It is a liberal fraud on the public, perpetrated at the public’s own expense by liberal mathematics professors, in the form of an artificial number system (created by the Jewish liberal mathematician Georg Cantor) which our Christian God Himself did not create, and which therefore has no useful connection whatsoever to the natural world. We will furthermore show that its very existence is formally untestable and most probably false. In typical liberal fashion, it is based on invalid premises upon which liberal mathematicians have reasoned illogically and with malice aforethought, the better to serve their liberal agenda. It is an indisputable fact that its study drove its own inventor to insanity and death. It is presently not known how many other students of mathematics since Cantor’s time who were forced to study this mathematical atrocity have unaccountably and tragically suffered a similar fate later in life.

Since it bears through and through the taint of liberal bias no less than do currently-popular editions of the Bible, a strong case can and should be made to halt this deadly and expensive fraud by systematically and dispassionately ridding mathematics of this specific instance of liberal bias and return it, like the Bible, to its natural and hence conservative roots. In so doing, we can not only save untold numbers of lives of innocent students but also thwart the corrosive social agenda of the cabal of liberal mathematics professors who have secretly controlled the development of their field and poisoned it with their liberal bias for the last two centuries.

HMMM?[edit]

I reckon we all ought to have a proper place to discuss last night's results, but it seems to be happening here. Oh well, anyway I spotted a fascinating stat on CNN as I supped my ale in a pub this afternoon - apparently 20% of white born-again Christians voted for Obama. Which is strange. Surely this is exactly the size of the anti-Mormon vote? DogP (talk) 01:04, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

10% of the Tea party and 6% of republicans also voted for Obama; i saw these polls as well. --Mikal Harass Follow 01:43, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
Let's say you're a Republican and a manager at a Jeep plant in Ohio. "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt / the bailout was my idea / the bailout is why Jeep is moving to China" is bound to make you determined to vote against the son of a bitch. Whoover (talk) 02:10, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
Maybe as part of their soul-searching/born-again-ness, they realized that the basic services (not the dogma) of Christianity (giving to charity, caring for the poor/sick/elderly, loving thy neighbor, judging not lest ye be judged, etc) were actually more in-line with Democratic values than Republican ones. After all, more born-again Christians than non-"born again" Christians understand that "God helps those who help themselves" is not the central message of the Bible. -- Seth Peck (talk) 18:07, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
Also:
  • The central message of Buddhism is not "every man for himself."
  • Aristotle was not Belgian.
  • The London Underground is not a political movement.

There are, in fact, born-again christians who realize that Jesus' message was what he said, not what people who pretend to agree with what he said say he said. You know, stuff like kicking the moneylenders out of the temple, and the sermon on the mount, and all that other good stuff, as opposed to focusing on the parts of the bible that have nothing to do with Jesus - you know, the stuff in Deuteronomy that most ignore.

BotP Andy tries again[edit]

Andy knows betterimg than all those stupid "experts" why Romney lost, even if he does change his story every five minutes. Today's reason is all those blasted people voting in a disgraceful way. How exploitative it is for Democrats to allow people to vote at their own convenience. If only there were more ways to stop people voting, surely Romney would have won. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 04:38, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

If anything, early ballots are even surer than Voter ID laws and regular polling. Ballots only go to your address, and only if you signed up for it. He's just fishing for excuses, no matter how flimsy. I don't know what he thinks Democrats "exploited."--"Shut up, Brx." 04:51, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
It's quite simple, and you hear it all the time in first-person shooters popular with teenagers (Counter-Strike, Call of Duty anything, etc.) when they lose, complaining about hacks. It comes down to, if you beat me, clearly you must have cheated. News to no one: Andy and co have the mental maturity of age 13. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 05:23, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
The link a couple of stories below is amazing. I'm not entirel sure its not a poe, but it does look like a respectable site. Why Romney Lost. Apparently Republicans are too nice, not partisan enough, too reluctant to go on about his fictional birth story and above all, didn't devote enough time to pointing out that Obama is evil and corrupt. I'm speechless. DamoHi 05:44, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Much worse than Fox News. The person that wrote that article is seriously unhinged. He would give Terry, Andy or Karajou a run for their money. --DamoHi 07:20, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
No, the author of the article is not as unhinged as it's possible to be - read the comments underneath. E.g. don't let black people or poor people vote and make women take an IQ test before they're allowed near a ballot box. I'd like to think that Andy cringes at the attitudes of some of the people who call themselves conservatives because I'm pretty sure he's not a racist; I'm less sure about some of the weirdo admins of his ensyklopeediyah.

Project 200+ vague blog posts[edit]

I see Kendoll is at it againimg. This is going to be just like the fictional booklet isn't it, only this time its going to go on forever. Instead of a blog post after every fantasy chapter, it'll be a blogpost after every fantasy group joins. But strangely he'll never link to any of these groups, nor will any of them acknowledge they've joined a great new coalition of creationists. Kendoll, this charade is as transparent as glass. Stop already. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 07:11, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Well, I'm disappointed to find that none of the NJ teabaggers could summon some appropriate vitriol for the (putative) second term president or the American people in general. Everyone in the CP orbit seems to be unable to even say the words "Obama won", perhaps they fear that saying it will make it real.

(Edit conflict) Give them some time, they'll have some posts prepared blaming the loss on demagoguery, fraud, and hack Republicans. Salanitri may well use this to further promote her idea about a viable third party. Wouldn't that be lovely? Two major parties for conservatives. Dems would win everything across the board.--"Shut up, Brx." 19:14, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
There are three parties for them now, Republican, Libertarian, and Constitution. However, under our electoral system, a third party will not make any serious gains until a fair number of people are convinced that there is no meaningful difference between Republicans and Democrats and do not care which of those two parties wins. We had some brief tastes of this in the 1990s with Perot and Ventura, but I do not see it happening now. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 19:21, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

I disagree. The core of the U.S. libertarian movement consists of cranks longing for the Good Old Days of the Gilded Age or the Jacksonian era. Then you have the issue that the Libertarian Party has drifted closer to mainstream conservatism, causing the Objectivist Party to break off of it.

@ListenerX: I mean a party with a chance of winning big in national elections. Maybe Salanitri will absorb into the Constitution party, maybe she'll do her own thing. I don't think she'll get anywhere, but she's been talking about the possibility of a third party, citing dissatisfaction with the GOP--"Shut up, Brx." 20:01, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

The putative isn't even in brackets now. He's blaming the moochers (read black people) and Romney's strange lack of fixation on the fabricated "scandals" that so obsess his teabagging set. Plus of course the lack of god in American culture, as if that's a real thing. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:03, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Conservapedia and CNAV have it wrong; Romney didn’t win because he did so poorly among non-white voters. Bush managed to get some 44% of the Hispanic vote when he made his presidential runs. Obama managed some 67% of the Latino vote 2008 but the Democrats only just 60% in 2010, despite this, Obama got 75-79% of the Latino vote this time around. It’s easy to see why, while Obama came out with the DREAM act, conservatives and the Tea-Party set within the GOP refuse to budge on immigration reform and instead stand by the whole idea of militarizing the border and kicking those who are not legal immigrants out in some nativist tirade rather than be rational and find some way to integrate them into American society as citizens. We need a fair and sensible comprehensive immigration reform and Republicans need to get behind that, better yet, initiate it. Forget the idiots like WND, the Tea Partiers, and Savage who believe we should just crusade to arrest and deport all the illegal immigrants, it is never going to happen and it would never work even if they tried; the GOP needs to embrace immigration reform, and listen to Latino & Asian concerns. Also just drop kick all the racists and Birthers out of the party in general, thanks.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 21:45, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

I'm actually disappointed[edit]

If Romney had won, it would have been fun to see their rhetoric change from "limited government" to national security, patriotism, and the rest of the crap we got from conservatives during the Bush years (making fun of the president is TREASON!!)--"Shut up, Brx." 22:19, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

I hope you're joking.

"They chose to act like they wanted to be liked, instead of acting on the principles set by Abe Lincoln."
Of all the bullshit sprayed around by the misogynists and racists in the modern Republican party, this is the lie that goes unchallenged far too often. Lincoln was a great politician precisely because he reached out to his rivals and brought them on board (Seward, Chase, Bates, Trumbull, Judd, etc). The modern Republican party is an entity that tells 47% of the country to go fuck itself. Lincoln might have been a Republican president, but today he'd be a Democrat. The continued attempts by the bigots in the modern Republican party to claim otherwise is an insult to Lincoln's memory. rpeh •TCE 20:49, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Jpatt's hilarious/seditious tantrum[edit]

Quoted verbatimimg:

We lost, I get that but Democrats have made us enemy #1. Not Al Qaeda, not Russia, not China. Democrats have made Republicans enemy #1 and I choose to call them the enemy and defeat them. I will remain patient. They remain clueless when it comes to what America stands for, they don't understand exceptionalism, economics and liberty. Ultimately their brand is finished, their ideology will be short lived. Just remember the American Revolution pitted the most powerful army in the world against a rag tag group of settlers. We know who won.

Part 1: The implementation of Chicago politics, nationwide, must be stopped. We will not let them rig the system for future Democrat politicians. Recognizing this is the first step in defeating them.

Part 2: The media is the enemy of the rightful owners of this country. I will not rest until they are defeated as well. Fox News makes the list unless they ditch the establishment.

Part 3: The first 10 amendments of the Constitution are made for the people. Use it against the government as they try to steal liberty.

So I end this with a congratulation to Democrats. You weren't proven right, you only won an election. We choose to fight as God as my witness.

Hate to question you, Fergus, but where were the British fighting the French in 1776-83?

You're right that there was no direct conflict between 1763 and 1778, but troops still had to be kept in the UK to deter a frog invasion. There were also troops deployed in India (Regulars as well as Company troops) where they were fighting the First Mahratta War and keeping a grip on former French colonies they'd defeated in 1763. Add in the garrisons in the Med to contain Spain and that was a fairly major drain on an Army that only had 48,000 men.

Jpatt is just a silly toe-rag but what's worrying is if his sort of gross stupidity is common among Tea-Partyists, of whom there are now several in Congress, including the Senate. The world economy, not just the USA's, desperately needs the USA to sort out its fiscal problems. If the Tea Party persuades the Republicans to obstruct a sensible solution by not cooperating with Obama and the Democrats (and some of them have said they will never compromise with Obama), it could be very bad for all of us.

Red Telephone for Ken[edit]

I see your little friend, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, lost his election bid in New Jersey. I'm guessing God didn't want a creationist in the legislature after all. --PsyGremlinTala! 15:07, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Did Ken even mention the Rabbi's campaign?
From this paragraph:
The Orthodox rabbi, author and media personality was defeated handily in his effort to unseat Rep. Bill Pascrell, a Democrat. Boteach mounted a longshot run as a Republican in the heavily Democratic northeastern New Jersey district.
it sounds like he was just put up to run against a sure Democratic winner. That's not uncommon in the States when you've got an officer holder who is pretty safely entrenched; the other part just finds some guy to throw against him just so he's not running unopposed but they have no expectation of winning.
I remember one guy from my hometown who ran against a very well liked House member. He didn't even bother to submit his photo to the local newspaper, he was so disinterested in campaigning. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 17:41, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Gonna Be a Tough One[edit]

David Petraeus resigned as head of the CIA, citing an extramarital affair. How does CP play this one?

He was hero of the right for the surge, attacked by the left as "General Betray Us," so this is a tragedy, right? But wait, he took a job in the Anti-Christ administration, so he's really a Commie, right? But the CIA was thrown under the bus for Benghazi, so he's a martyr, right? But the CIA enabled Obama and his Muslim Brotherhood friends assassinate Americans, so he's a murdering bastard, right? And he violated the sanctity of his marriage, so he will burn in hell, right? But it was with a woman, so we should turn the other cheek and not cast the first stone, right? I'm so confused. Whoover (talk) 20:19, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

Well, I don't know anything about the statistics of extramarital affairs, but I regard them as a big deal personally. I don't think it's having a "massive hangup about sex" to regard marital vows as essential, and breaking these vows deeply regrettable (I'm speaking here of traditional marriages, of course -- if the spouses agree to an open marriage, then it's not the same thing). That said, generally speaking, I don't think that extramarital affairs disqualify one for most positions. I don't know if head of the CIA is an exception to this rule, but private matters are, generally speaking, private, and the fact that I think extramarital affairs are morally significant doesn't mean I believe that they are matters of public concern. Phiwum (talk) 20:53, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
Well, I think you can lose a security clearance over an affair (even as a regular employee of a place like the CIA), because someone who knew about it could have leverage over you. While ordinarily I wouldn't care, this is one situation where there's at least a case to be made that it's appropriate for him to step down... --Benod (talk) 21:03, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
There can only be leverage if you think it is important to deny it. So the less importance that you attach to sexual matters then the less of an issue they are for security. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 22:24, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
Yes, but so what? The fact is that most persons in this society view monogamy as an essential aspect of a long term relationship and make vows to one another to this effect. As long as this continues (and I, for one, think that monogamy strengthens one's relationship, generally speaking, because I'm one of those neanderthals who think that sex matters), extramarital affairs are a sign of moral failure (presuming, again, that both parties involved pledged to remain monogamous). You can view this opinion that sex is more important than dessert as antiquated. Seems to me that, on the contrary, sex is a deeply personal experience with deeply emotional components and should be treated with care. (Of course, when I was younger, I didn't do so.)

Kübler-Ross[edit]

It looks like Andy's finally reached the acceptance stage of his shock and grief over Obama winning a second term and the Republicans failing to gain the Senate — It can all have been predicted, and the election result explained away, by the fact that the Jets' won't let Andy's bestest-ever-man-crush play.img
In related news — It now almost seems certain that the Republicans as a whole are going to decide that their failure to win the presidency isn't as a result of them or their policies, it's because the electorate is the wrong kind of electorate, and so it's all the electorate's fault. I seem to remember Tony Blair saying something like that once as well.--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 11:34, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Which is exactly why things like the voter ID laws were being passed - the GOP knew their policies did not appeal to vast swathes of the population, so rather than try and be a political party, they just tried to disenfranchise those most likely to vote against them. Which is something Coulter was saying they should do a long time ago. It would appear as if they still think this is the route to go - the elctorate is wrong, therefore the electorate must not vote. --PsyGremlinParlez! 12:43, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

What I think is pathetic is Andy's fantasy that Democrats everywhere said to themselves, "You know, Mitt is the better man for the presidency, but I'd rather see the nation sink into despair than vote for a conservative!" And that football coaches reason, "Tebow's the better QB, but as a typical, liberal NFL coach, I don't want to start an ostentatiousoutspoken Christian who might convert millions of currently damned heathens to Christianity, so let's go with the other guy instead."

Yes, but not every woman is a bimbo, not even every female Obama supporter is a bimbo, but there were reportedly one issue voters that, in my opinion, fit the criteria of "unintelligent women" and probably enough to sway the vote in some places. The "bimbos" I refer to are unintelligent college girls that know nothing about politics and only heard that Romney was running a "war on women" and wanted to take away their ability to legally kill unwanted babies and that Obama supported tax payer funded contraception and abortion; all they can think about is having sex and nothing else is more important to them than having sex. That's not even saying all college girls are "bimbos" (I personally know plenty of college girls that went for Romney), that's just saying there are dumb women that went to vote, just as there are dumb men that went to vote, but they say that women are the one's that went for Obama and I believe probably at least 10% of the female Obama supporters are sluts "sexually promiscuous females" enrolled in some liberal leaning university. I'm not a sexist, I'm believe in sexual equality, but I was raised by a single mother and a widowed grandmother, both of whom use terms like "slut" and "bimbo" so you can take your politically correct way of life and shove it up your ass. 216.245.196.10 (talk) 22:30, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

I'm sure I could if I tried; I tend to be kind to girls and girls tend to be kind to me. Words like "bimbo" I reserve for real idiots, and I don't toss them around liberally (there's a pun for you). 216.245.196.10 (talk) 23:19, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
So here's probably something worth noting so you don't get the wrong idea. I've known a lot of intelligent women of all ages. I generally treat women the same as men, except I give them a bit more courtesy (they call that chivalry) and some of them are attractive to me whereas men are not. I've even known liberal women (and even men for that matter) whom had an educated choice to support liberalism rather than conservatism, most of them middle aged individuals, blue collar workers originating from the northeast. It's the fools that support Obama just because he's black, because he's (supposedly) cool and sexually overactive ladies that only care about sex, those are the one's I'm calling bimbos. You don't vote for someone to be president because you think he's "cool", you vote for someone to be president because you think he's going to be a good leader. It's like if there was one token African American in a place of employment and people made him their union rep because they thought he was "cool". 216.245.196.10 (talk) 22:59, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Morris, you can't claim to not use the word "bimbo" liberally when you brandy it against large swaths of people you have never met, nor ever will meet. Your initial claim insinuated that the majority of the women who voted for Obama were single issue voters; I can take that as a result of the passion of the moment, but even here, the only real defense you can have for that statement is to back away from it. Informing us that you know intelligent women does not automatically ensure that you are not prejudiced, either. I think that the bulk of your argument here is a flawed one, and it's something that you as a conservative would benefit from snapping out of. One of the primary reasons for the Romney campaign's failure was the fact that he was running purely as a referendum candidate. The principle argument he would deliver to women and minorities, that his surrogates would state, and that his supporters on Fox news and (occasionally) CNN would offer was "yes, we know that Romney has offered positions that are not supportive of you, but the economy is bad. If you don't take this election as a referendum on the economy under Obama, you're stupid." In effect, this was a non argument, and the results of this election showed that this argument was not persuasive. You can persuade outsiders that minorities should vote for you because you are simply the "better candidate," but to the people that you are alienating yourself from, such a strategy will lend you not a modicum of sympathy or support. Romney's apparent willingness to offer any position that his advisors thought was politically profitable and his apparent isolation from the realities of the average American only compounded the situation. Your contention that women voted against Romney based on his stances on abortion isn't exactly a strong one, especially in light of Romney's performance in Missouri in comparison to Todd Akin. It's also flawed to assume that women are sluts simply because they support reproductive rights, and I find that argument to be shameful..but that's another fight for another day.WilliamR (talk) 08:00, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

Was Ken helping the Romney campaign?[edit]

I just read about "project Orca", a trial of Team Romney introduce a semi-automatic "get out the vote" effort. I was instantly reminded of Ken:

From the very start there were warning signs. After signing up, you were invited to take part in nightly conference calls. The calls were more of the slick marketing speech type than helpful training sessions. There was a lot of "rah-rahs" and lofty talk about how this would change the ballgame.
So, the end result was that 30,000+ of the most active and fired-up volunteers were wandering around confused and frustrated when they could have been doing anything else to help.

--larron (talk) 21:18, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

No, no. If it was Ken, he'd just pretend there were 30K volunteers fired up and ready to go. Then, on election day, he'd suddenly announce that an unfortunate flu epidemic had sprung up and that none of them could go to the polls, but in 2016 they'd be totally ready to destroy the Democrats for good.

30,000? If Ken managed to attract just 30 genuine non-parodist adherents to one of his amusingly pointless projects he’d ejaculate so hard he’d propel himself backwards at a velocity sufficient to cause serious injury, if it wasn’t for the cushion of empty pizza boxes behind him.

Especially when we could be discussing Ken's cute misunderstandings of English idioms. "by in large"img! He's so cute. Phiwum (talk) 01:08, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
I’m open to criticism, straits I am, gov’nor, and on refection I agree that my reference to anything beyond Ken’s slightly raised pulse on his unlikely gaining of more than 30 adherents was unseemly, common and base. I’ve learned my lesson in decency and from now on, at a push, I will only refer to Ken’s rantings as dastardly and caddish in intent, or the ramblings of a cunt.
Still, that at least keeps me just above those who criticise and point and laugh at people with lower IQs or lesser educations for not correctly reciting common idioms such as “by and large”. Such critics are humourless and needlessly smug, and people clap when they’re drowned in a bucket of vomit. JumboWhales (talk) 08:33, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

I reckon Jumbo has a point, but I had never seen that particular misstatement of an idiom so it caught my eye and struck me as funny. Later, I googled it, and evidently it's fairly common. Funny that I've never seen it when grading student essays or exams. Phiwum (talk) 14:09, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
"By enlarge" is the more common error, according to the Eggcorn database (which tracks mistakes caused by re-analysis of spoken English, of which of course "eggcorn" for "acorn" is the prototypical example). It's arguable whether "By in large" or "By enlarge" are really eggcorns, since the re-analysed versions, if that's what they are, don't make any more sense to non-nautical folk than "By and large"; for now though that's the best classification we have. You should politely correct this sort of error when editing or reviewing another person's work, but you probably shouldn't get uptight about them in finished works. The mechanism by which someone acquires an eggcorn is basically the same as the means by which you get most of your vocabulary, you hear someone say something and quite unconsciously you deduce the probable meaning and spelling for the word or idiom, without ever seeing it formally defined or spelled. Being humble reduces the opportunity for embarrassment, "I always thought it was spelled Giantic from the word giant?" makes the response "No, it's definitely gigantic, try a dictionary" less crushing than if you'd said "This is wrong, there's no middle G in Giantic". 82.69.171.94 (talk) 22:07, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

  • Well, at least one Conservapedian was part of Project Orca, and that one was me, DMorris. And I went through the same exact thing, except I actually had more than one person from the Romney campaign (including the legal team) helping me, and when ejected from the polling place, I improvised and found a way to do it outside of the polling location. But it was still an interesting experience despite the problems, I would recommend participation in similar programs to anyone wanting to get involved. 216.245.196.10 (talk) 23:16, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

The analysis I've seen suggests that Orca was maybe just someone connected with Romney seeing an opportunity to get rich and taking it. There are a lot of companies making shitty web software for a sky-high price and usually their fear is that somebody figures out the scam before they get paid and they end up not making their percentage. So Orca was set up so that the "deliverable" wasn't going to show up until the Big Boss, Romney, doesn't care any more. By election day morning when Orca was supposed to be online it's too late to recoup the money and spend it elsewhere. So if some nerd comes up to Romney at ten AM on polling day and says "Orca is a bust, they screwed us" why should he care? What's he going to do, sue them? It's a hazard with any political party and I'd guess it's worse for the Republicans because if you keep saying "every man for himself" then some of your supposed supporters will take you at your word. If the campaign stuff was all handled by The Republican Party there'd be people still on the team on the Wednesday morning doing a post mortem and adjusting the approach for the cycle and in that case something like Orca wouldn't make as much sense. But Romney ran the Romney campaign, not the Republicans and for Romney that's it, done. He's out of politics so anything that didn't go well is just too bad and there are no lessons to learn for him. The bogus web app, sharing the ticket with some kill-the-poor lunatic, trying to make a joke about aeroplane windows, it's all irrelevant now. 82.69.171.94 (talk) 12:20, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

My Big, Fat Greek Messiah[edit]

Remember Andy's odd theory that Jesus wrote Epistle to the Hebrewsimg? Well, it was written in Greek. Can you guess what the new mystery is?
Mystery:Did Jesus Teach in Greek?img
Andy brings his strange views about linguistic determinism into it: "Greek was a far more powerful language than Aramaic for conveying theological or philosophical concepts". Apparently Jesus could heal the sick, rise from the dead but conveying his ideas in Aramaic was beyond him. Andy's really been entertaining lately.

Maybe he was hoping it would be confirmed instead because he'd found some relevant "Biblical foresight". I mean, if you squint hard enough you can imagine you're seeing Biblical foresight of anything. I just opened a Bible at a random page and flipped through for a minute looking for anything plausible, here goes: "... not one will be without its mate". Now in context that's just part of a pointless aside during a rant in Isiah about how God is going to destroy this or that group - but if you're Andy I'm sure you can conclude that it means super-symmetry is true.

I suspect he's referring to the fact that voter turnout was lower in 2012 than in 2008, despite the fact that early voting opportunities were greater. Phiwum (talk) 17:36, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
Clearly, the early voting war of attrition on turnout is working. But seriously, he's just lashing out. Everyone knows higher turnouts are more democratic turnouts.[3] Same as 2+2=4. Occasionaluse (talk) 18:00, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
I don't know that higher turnouts are "more democratic". I value an informed electorate, which is not the same thing as a larger electorate. I very rarely vote on local matters because I am not well-informed on these (and I haven't the impetus to get well-informed). Nonetheless, I certainly have nothing against early voting. Phiwum (talk) 18:08, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
"There are a number of important senses in which high turnout works to the advantage of Democratic presidential candidates." Andy complaining about a Republican loss because of low turnout is crazy. I believe he is not arguing in good faith. 18:22, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

I don't get Andy's hate on for early voting. Its not like if voting was restricted to one day only, Dem supporters would inexplicably vote republican. --Revolverman (talk) 07:01, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
Early voting tends to get more Democrat votes, or at least that's what some possibly-partisan site on the Internet told me recently. And Republicans in this election season are really taking it so seriously that they are quite in favour of taking away as many chances as possible from Democrats. Witness the attempted (and sometimes successful, depressingly) voter ID laws, ostensibly to tackle voting fraud that simply doesn't exist, that far and away disenfranchise the poor and minorities more than they do the well-off white base -- the very base the GOP was depending on to carry the election for them. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 07:14, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
Basically, Ocho is right. Early voting gives people more time to get to the polls, particularly people who work the more common "9-5" jobs that may not be able to get time off from their employers (not all states have time off laws, although some do). This means that early voters tend to skew Democratic, especially in larger cities with larger groups of low income and minority voters. I think in Andy's mind, the progression goes something along the lines "Early voters tend to be Democratic voters -> Early voting means more Democrats can vote -> Democrat votes are bad -> Early voting is rigged to support Democrats." SirChuckBBoom Goes the Dynamite 10:25, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
And we all know that opening democracy to as wide as possible a participation group is undemocratic. Methinks Andy doesn't know the etymology of "democracy". This should come as a surprise to nobody, of course. Of course, I have an explanation for why conservatives don't go for early voting much. Margaret Cho once observed, in one of her stage tours, that conservatives were for the death penalty, but against abortion -- they're just lazy.

" If you want a lesson in sycophantic homoeroticism.."[edit]

(Quote taken from the post above this one). Can we all fucking stop dragging a man's alleged sexual orientation into our commentary here? Yes, User:Conservative's edit pattern reveals that he has some deep-seated homophobic tendencies. That's a pretty shitty character trait, and I hope he'll come around and stop being a bigot. Do you know what's guarantee to not help in that process? Calling him a fairy at every turn. You might think you're being hip and clever, but you're not. You're using sexual orientation as an insult. The fact that you're doing it against someone who himself hates gay people doesn't make you "hip" or "ironic." It doesn't make you "clever." It makes you "the kins of person who uses sexual orientation in a derogatory way." Grow the fuck up. Act like an adult.

I don't think we're using sexuality as an insult. Rather, I think that we're saying that he's denying his true nature. Some, but not all, people who express particularly strong homophobic tendencies are actually externalising their own internal struggle with their sexuality. I think it's less a matter of saying "LOL U FAG" and more saying, "There must be a reason for this extremely bizarre behaviour." Mental illness is one such answer, but there are others. --Sasayaki (talk) 13:04, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
Right. Nothing at all derogatory about referring to sychophancy in terms of sucking cock. No, of course, we mean that there's nothing at all emasculating or shameful about sucking cock, but we use that term because Ken, who is less enlightened than we, might find it insulting.
I'm with ToP here. The repeated discussion of Ken masturbating and cumming while typing, the metaphors of sucking cock to describe unseemly cowardice and flattery, it's all way too fucking much. Good God, can't we find the words to describe Ken's stupidity (or illness) without resorting to disgusting or fundamentally anti-homosexual images? Is this really the best literary expressions we can find? I don't regard myself as particularly sensitive, but this is simply too much. Phiwum (talk) 16:15, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

BMcP said: "If you are going to poke fun at him, poke fun at the obvious faults: The poor reasoning, the repeating ad nauseam of the same tired and boring material..." Right. And what is the root cause of his perceived "faults". It's because he's fucking nuts. So making fun of the manifestations of his speculated upon mental illness is pretty much the same thing as mocking the disease itself. "Oh no, I wasn't teasing you about your polio... I was just making fun of the way you walk."

Andy's 2016 Predictions[edit]

Embedded in his latest lecture, Andy predicts that "On the Republican side, it is expected that Jeb Bush will seek and win the nomination, while Hillary Clinton seems likely to be the Democrat nominee."img He also forecasts a tough election for Chris Christie next year. This from the man who brought us an article about the Gingrich Administration...

Besides, Andy isn't wrong with his picks; those two are probably among your best bets at the moment. His problem is saying that they are likely to win, when it's obviously way too early to make any such calls. Having a 20% chance or so is enough to make someone frontrunner 4 years out, but is far from being the "likely" candidate. If HIllary does decide to run ( and I don't see any compelling reason why should wouldn't) she would certainly be the odds on favorite. DickTurpis (talk) 17:45, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
Exactly. If he'd mentioned a few names and said something like Bush and Clinton being the early front-runners, that would have been fine. Saying "expected" and "likely" turns it into a more solid prediction. rpeh •TCE 18:05, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Jets will keep losing, why? Liberals![edit]

According to football sage Il Duce Andy, the liberal scum of New York would rather see their beloved Jets lose then allow Tim Tebow, all American good guy, bring them salvation through a perfect second half of the season victory runimg. Why? Because he is a Christian conservative of course, and no one is oppressed like white, wealthy, male, Christian conservatives, amiright? Of course Tebow's own teammates feel he isn't the quarterback to lead the team to victory, but pfffft, what do they know compared to Andy?! They just play the game professionally, and probably vote Democrat too, the liberal losers.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 01:10, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Then why did they recruit Tebow in the first place if they hate Christians so much?--"Shut up, Brx." 01:12, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
That's an easy one. If Tebow had stayed in Denver he clearly would have gone on to dominate the league and shatter all NFL records. Thus sweeping in a new era of American Christendom. The economy would come roaring back and church attendance would skyrocket. Evolution would finally be crushed, the ultra-lucrative abortion industry would be driven into bankruptcy, and CP would finally knock off google and facebook and become the web's #1 destination. Well the libs can't have that, so Tebow had to go. The couldn't risk making a martyr out of St. Tim, so they concocted a scheme to trade him, have the new coach bench him, and then have a bunch of sports writers talk about how much he sucks. Of course Andy can see straight through that shit. --Inquisitor (talk) 01:33, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
No, no, as Andy has said the move to the Jets was "in order to oust conservative Tim Tebow from his leadership position in the swing state of Colorado prior to the Presidential Election 2012"img. Tebow's conservative aura was so great that liberals feared he'd make them lose Colorado, so they had to sent him to a blue state to minimize his damage and also tempt Tebow to the dark side. Or something. --Night Jaguar (talk) 01:57, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
There is nothing that Andy has less of a feel for than sports. He is totally and utterly clueless about the subject.

Sorry, I wasn't very clear. I meant the original FYI Gentlemen post. I'm not going to count the words though. rpeh •TCE 06:09, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
I figgered that's what you meant, but Ken never claimed to have counted those words. Phiwum (talk) 06:14, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Statistics Fun[edit]

Good griefimg. For a man who's taken so many statistics courses, Andy really has no clue about how statistics works. That whole thread is a testament to his idiocy. It's also worth noting that Googling "statistical impossibility" brings up an ancient CP article first, then a few articles pointing out that the term is wrong, then loads of cretinist sites using it about evolution. rpeh •TCE 05:50, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Gah. He really does seem to be assuming that the vote was evenly distributed. I would have thought one glace at a map of republican vs. democratic counties would put that one to rest. How can someone so educated be simultaneously such an ignoramus? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 09:19, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
He doesn't realise voting is not evenly distributed like a bell curve. If the results had been the other way round, with some rural districts voting 100% for Romney, he'd be using it instead as an example of 'Democrat incompetency'. Doraemon話そう!話そう! 09:36, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
I'm not willing to give Andy credit for being that stupid. He's just a liar and a propagandist. Occasionaluse (talk) 13:45, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
I think it's a mixture of all of those. He refuses to believe that Democrats could win such a big majority and is his mind that means they cheated. He then pounces on the first statistic that fits his narrative, tweaks it to make it fit better, dresses it up in incorrect terminology and claims a New Insight. rpeh •TCE 14:21, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Now it's Plenipotentiary Chuckarse[edit]

"If you are serious about brokering a deal to have the old Confederate States of America secede from the Union, I for one would gladly take the post of Ambassador Extraordinary/Plenipotentiary of such an entity, if they would do me the honor of offering me that post. Given my split heritage, half Northern and half Southern, I would consider myself more than usually qualified to be such an Ambassador or to serve on his staff.

Or maybe, given my experiences with weathering Hurricane Sandy and Nor’easter Athena, and Hurricanes Alicia (1983), Adam (1980), and Camille (1969), not to mention five years’ residency in Memphis, TN, the largest city of consequence along Tornado Alley, I could as easily work my way up the militia chain."

Because some of my ancestors were born in the north and some in the south, because I didn't die in five (count 'em) natural disasters that killed tens of people, and because I lived for five years in the same spot, I feel entirely justified in being the ambassador of a newly formed country towards the part they succeeded from, who now have presumably fairly hostile attitudes towards their former countrymen. This situation requiring extreme patience, tact and understanding, of which I have none. Jesus, fuck... --Sasayaki (talk) 15:51, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Texas wanting to secede reminds me of wanting to run away when I was a child. I wish there was some way to indulge them, like the time my parents let me move into a tent in the backyard. Just a few cold, hungry nights in the woods. No serious harm to the republic, but a lesson learned. Occasionaluse (talk) 16:12, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
Let's not make a big deal out of noting. A few thousand people out of 26 million have signed an e-petition that makes noise about leaving the Union. Quebec has had a viable separatist movement that has formed the national government for much of my life, and yet to say tat "Quebec wants to separate" is to grossly overestimate the desire for Quebec sovereignty. To say "Texas wanting to secede" doesn't even come close to reflecting reality. Yet another example of the internet making something inconsequential look real. Theory of Practice Still tryin' to figure it all out. 16:25, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
"Just how friggin' big does he think Tornado Alley is?" It corresponds exactly with the bible belt. His greatest unspoken qualification is that he is an expert on the bible (and every single other subject he speaks on) to the exclusion of all others. Get shown to be a liar? Either threaten to ban the user or simply don't respond to the charge. Boom. Plenipotentiary material. Just as he's perfectly willing to ascribe intentions to our the man now occupying the White House, I'm eager to proclaim that ejecting all but those christians Terry approves of would be his first order of business. Atheists will be summarily tried, sentenced, and executed. ToP: don't you think this has something to do with the laughable chestnut that Texas reserved the right to sucede at any time upon joining the United States?

I have a story called "A Tale of Two Rice's".

One Rice is an administration official in charge of national security. She fails to prevent the greatest terrorist attack in the history of America. She testifies in front of Congress that she has no idea about anything at all; not how it happened, not how it could have been prevented, not who missed the clues. Nothing. Just a big "fuck you" to Congress and the American people. The Republicans then promote her to Secratary of State.

The other Rice is an ambassador to the UN, who is in no way in charge of the security of Benghazi. The day after the attacks, she willing goes on a Sunday news program, and, in the course of giving a fair assessment of the situation at the moment, doesn't use the word "terrorist!" hard enough. The Republicans throw a complete shit-storm over the POSSIBILITY that she might be promoted to Secratary of State, saying that no one who had ANYTHING, no matter how remotely, to do with an attack on Americans has ANY right to that position.

And I sit on my couch, sad, screaming "Are you fucking kidding me??". FIN Carlaugust (talk) 19:21, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

A lot of it is pure politics. Before the election, everybody knew Clinton was stepping down as Sec. of State, and the word was that John Kerry would get the gig. The trouble is, he's Senator John Kerry (D-MA), and a reasonable Republican, Scott Brown, just became available to stand in the special election. Over the past few days Republicans have been praising Kerry to the rafters because they want that seat as it'd open up the remote possibility of a takeover in 2014. Obama has now realised this too, hence the switch to Rice, and the resultant Republican histrionics such as McCain threatening a filibuster over the whole thing. Add to that Carlaugust's neat analysis and the whole thing is pretty pathetic. rpeh •TCE 19:34, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

Goddamn it, you beat me to making a topic about this :(. I just wonder whether Andy or his joyboys will try to bury this at some point soon , though given Andy was too scared to utter even a whisper of dissent when Ken started to trash and spit on Andy's church for being being stupid liberals, I doubt andy will grow a backbone now. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 20:05, 15 November 2012 (UTC)
No, Andy won't grow a backbone, but he'll meekly edit the "headline" with the excuse that it's too long and he'll pretend he has a backbone -- even though the edited comment will still more or less cast a retroactively negative light on Petraeus despite his years of exemplary service which ends with this truly regrettable and sad tale.

You have to remember that Ken can really only hold onto one thought at a time - a the moment it's that everybody he doesn't like is lacking machismo - be it us, Dawkins or the general. He simply doesn't have the mental faculties to be able to structure his argument in any other way. At least he didn't call him obese. As for Karajou, well he bent over, grabbed his ankles and became Ken's bitch during the whole Rob affair, so of course he's going to suck up to him, because goddess forbid Andy new right hand man turn on Kara and threaten the only bit of authority he's ever had in his life. --PsyGremlinSprich! 19:01, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
