    Oh shit Anne Coulter just blew a casket on Hannity. Claiming if Saul isn't fired soon no donor should donate or help Romney. She's not a Romney fan, but thats still on a big derp show for the base.

    It was the Andrea Saul comment about Romney's healthcare thing. She's going out of her mind about Romney's spokesman not lying about healthcare. Red State is saying "this picks a scab amongst conservatives".

    Obama says "Culture War? FUCK YOU!"

    Amazingly enough Romney agrees with Obama, I can't believe that.

    Goddammit Romney is just breaking my brain today. I'm pissed at him, then he does something I agree with.

    Wait 15 minutes then check his position again.

    ...brainwave.

    Romney is the quantum candidate. You can know his position because he will eventually have all of them, but not when he will hold it.

    Democrats finally found their balls! Keep going guys, you are actually doing unironically great!

    I think the utter insanity of the GOP is pushing democrats to go "Wait hold up you actually believe that shit? Wow."

    I do have to applaud Claire McCasskill in missouri for pushing out ads to get the craziest ultra conservative the win in the primary, here's hoping she can pull a Sharon Angle upset.

    I'd prefer she pulled a Kurt Angle upset and put him through a table, then paraded around the ring with the title in the air.

It's too easy to charge that they are being anti-American and unpatriotic by not removing restrictions that make it hard for working Americans and servicemen to vote.

    Isn't already federal law that employers must allow employees time off to vote? Though just having no work at all that day would be nice.

    Yeah, do we really need, say, Columbus Day?

    Why aren't you fond of that ad? What's with all this fucking hand wringing from people?

    You know what happens in the US when people lose their jobs?
    They lose their health insurance.

    You know what sick people without health insurance do?
    They fucking DIE.

    Welcome to reality.
    Stop being fucking squimish.

    This is mostly correct. Politics is not a sport; policy has consequences, and we have to engage in a discussion about those consequences in an honest manner.

    However, the ad's not really about Romney's policy, it's about his character. I'd be less guilty about liking the ad if the message was "This is what will happen if Romney is elected and repeals Obamacare" rather than "This Romney guy is a scumbag and a murderer".
    It's also about his policy. Because (as the Romney campaign was kind enough to point out) under the ACA, this wouldn't have happened. And Romney is campaigning to repeal the ACA. So, while it doesn't explicitly mention that, it's still what the ad is about.

    Yeah, I'd have liked it to have mentioned the ACA as well, but it does do a decent job of working on multiple levels. For the people who care more about character than policy and need things beaten into their heads, it beats Romney's character into their heads. For people who actually care about policy and can follow implications, it implies that Romney's future policies would serve to hurt rather than help people in financial need. For people who are willing to do research and develop a moderately nuanced grasp of current events and the law, it reminds them that the issue has already been solved or at least lessened by the ACA, and that the Republicans are actively trying to recreate it.

    We could also just move Lief Erikson Day a month ahead, since nobody knows the actual date of the landing. (Yay for dark ages record keeping!)

    Oh fucking please.
    Faith, here's an equivocator that could swear in both the scales
    against either scale, who committed treason enough for God's
    sake, yet could not equivocate to heaven. O, come in, equivocator

    That ad isn't saying Romney killed his wife, it says Romney doesn't understand the consequences of the actions he takes and policies he supports. Which is true if we want to be generous about Mr. Mittens' character.

    When you ask why if liberals are so fucking smart they lose so goddamn always, remember the porter.

    It's okay, AMFE: they'll like the ad when we win.

    The answer is probably because Lief Erikson wasn't Catholic. Columbus Day was recognized as a Federal holiday at a time when immigrant Catholic communities in the U.S. (namely Italian) stopped being "others" and started being "real white Americans".
