Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Come on down to crazy Michele Bachmanns crazy house of crazy!

    Okay now I'm turned on.

    It does interest me how crazy the House can get though. Does it have the same recidivism rate as the Senate? I've heard that it's vastly overemphasized how often people get re-elected, and I feel like the house shifts really often.

    Man. I should run for House, just a couple of years of getting to say crazy shit and have people listen, it must be fun.

    Two year terms mean that even if they had the same re-election rates as the Senate (which they don't, not least of which because they're all bonkers) they're coming up for election a lot more often.

    Isn't there one in Wyoming or somewhere that literally follows a river, without having territory on either bank, for 40 or so miles?

    senate is only a little bit less, but they have to fight over a larger and and more mutable constituency so it's to be expected, and it's a more exclusive club in the senate :P

    incumbents have a A LOT of home court advantage though

    most importantly PACs and interest groups and corporate people are more likely to throw their money behind one

    Plus, how many Senators are former members of the House? If you had a good record in your district in the House, you've got a good chance at a Senate seat, especially with the backing you can get in a federal office.
