    Re: The Mid-Terms Results Thread

    So far, the result of there being a mid term election are as follows:

    Two teams fans have entered the stadium, and are sitting on opposite sides. Cheerleaders are waving pom poms, dancing, shouting, making human pyramids, and in general creating excitement. There is a guy in a donkey suit doing handstands on one side, while another in an elephant suit is running about and waving his arms. The fans on both sides are chanting and shouting. Vendors are selling $8 hot dogs, $10 cups of semi flat beer, and $30 made in China T shirts with the tea... I mean party logos on them. Tailgaters are in the parking lot picnicking on tri tip and more beer.

    It's an exciting time! Let's post the scores as they come in!

    MMC's posts seem the most consistently guilty of applying lowbrow sports commentary analysis to what should be a societal reflection on our shared future.

    it is insanely stupid how the voters in this country (as a collective) vote. They get made at the dems, so they vote for repubs. Then they get mad at the repubs and vote for the dems. Remembering that they don't actually like dems they again vote for the repubs they dont like. It blows my mind that people continue to vote for groups of people who's collective approval ratings are constantly poor.

    I agree 100%.

    And what is worse, IMO, is when these same people - who know they are voting for rotten politicians - justify it with that old 'it is your duty to vote' nonsense...like voting for someone horrible is better then not voting at all.

    To me, you are doing a disservice to your country if you knowingly vote for a person who you believe will make a poor politician JUST BECAUSE they are running for the political party you like.

    Also, there is a guy in the parking lot wearing a porcupine suit who was not invited to the game, not allowed to buy a ticket and no one will cover him. Also some random other guys in outfits who were not invited.

    I don't know whether to watch election results tonight, or the car shows on Discovery.

    Decisions, decisions...

    I doubt that most people actually like their own political parties. They like what that party is supposed to represent, and whatever party they "like" has them terrified of what the other party will do if they dont vote, or vote any different than their party.

    I think if people were honest about it, they vote for who they dislike or distrust the least.
