You're kidding?!? I had four waiting for me when I got home from work tonight. 'Course I had already voted...Astronuc said:At least we don't have incessant calls to vote or calls to inquire as to whom we might be voting or what we think about issues. I can't believe the number of surveys with which we have been bombarded during the last two weeks. :grumpy:
My wife said she was called tonight to remind her to vote, which she had already done.russ_watters said:You're kidding?!? I had four waiting for me when I got home from work tonight. 'Course I had already voted...
Heh...I bet 90% of the posts will be mine. I'm a nut!Evo said:Good thread idea gokul!
I'm calling this one against Santorum.Astronuc said:Early in the PA Senate Race, with 11% of precints reporting, Casey (D) -206,018 - is leading Santorum (R) - 122,972. That will be an interesting race.
Allen has a nearly 30,000 vote lead...but I'm still expecting Webb to start pulling up closer any time now. Arlington is likely to give Webb an extra 15,000 or so votes, and that's one of 3 or 4 such big ones with a lot of counting remaining.In VA, Allen is slightly ahead of Webb with 81% of the precincts reporting. Incumbents seem to be enjoying support.
:rofl: This is what wives do best! He should have listened to his wife. :rofl:SULLIVAN'S ISLAND, South Carolina (CNN) -- A sheepish Gov. Mark Sanford was turned away from a South Carolina polling place Tuesday because he forgot his voter registration card.
The casting of ballots in front of the news media is a well-worn tradition for politicians, but it was no Kodak moment when Sanford discovered he had left his card behind.
Off camera, South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford could be heard telling her husband that she had reminded him to bring it.
That's not the point. It's not about second-guessing the commanders, it's about putting a check on the president. Congress should have supported the military, which was being undermined by the administration."I voted to give the president the authority to use force in Iraq; that doesn't mean I'm always happy with what I see, but I can think of nothing worse for our troops or our prospects for success than having 435 members of Congress second-guessing our commanders," Pryce wrote.
As a Missourian, I'm extremely disappointed. Given that all the polls had suggested that the amendment enjoyed an overwhelming support (51% to 35%), it appears that the fundamentalists got out the vote. At the same time, McCaskill is currently losing by a surprising amount, suggesting that the same fundamentalists are influencing the Senate race as well.Evo said:Unfortunately Stem Cell Initiative Constitutional Amendment 2 in favor of stem cell research is not doing well. The Christians have been out in droves "voting against cloning" as they put it. Once again, we're at the mercy of the ignorant masses. :surprised
Here's the proposed ammendment for those not aware of it.
