    Those are the only people that matter as of late. Look at the attacks on education.

    Love that later in the conversation he says he finds it implausible that people would leave the second round blank because he can’t see why people would have no opinion between the remaining two.

    As if we don’t have precedent on people leaving races blank, or that 99% of the time a third party vote in a regular election format is essentially accomplishing the same thing.

    Or basically: “Palin isn’t dumb! Our voters are.”
    LOL. Love it.

    I don't know if they need to certify the election results this year. If yes, and Whitmer is elected does the GOP hold the state hostage? Or do they wait for their savior to lose (again)?

    I watched that hearing...where they would only agree to certify the White parts of the county.

    Because the election board is a 4 person board split between parties. It is going to the Michigan Supreme Court, which is majority democratic appointed, so it should be on the ballot.

    So bascially if it is a tie it doesn't get on the ballot. Just more GOP fuckery.

    Yeah the women registering phenomenon is killer for the GOP all over the country right now. While women who normally vote might be split on the abortion issue the new voters are registering for one reason...revenge for taking away their rights!

    edit: I like Wasserman but he is wrong this is not just cause they hate Palin. People don't register just to prevent someone from winning they register this late cause they care.
    Looks like it may have been a factor here, women were the (slim) majority of voters in a state where men outnumber women in registered voters.

    Yeah, and those were just the ones off the top of my head.

    First Woman from Alaska in the House
    First Alaska Native in Congress
    First Democrat from in Alaska in Congress since Mark Begich.
    First Democrat to win a statewide race in Alaska since Begich in 2008.
    First Democrat from Alaska in the House since 1972.

    Also, at this point, she’s the de facto leader of the Democratic Party in Alaska.
