Those phrenology threads in the Clinic are a disgrace. It makes the forum look like a den of crackpots.

Anyone surprised how little Global Warming did not feature in the campaign for President? Is that potentially because of the problems with passing an ETS through Congress therefore is a non-issue?

I think it would be hard to get through at the best of times, but with a weak economy almost impossible. Also very hard to get through the US congress with all the big oil money floating around.

There is a reality distortion field that ends at the Manitoba border (Saskatoon notwithstanding), get away from TO and you quickly forget the embarrassment that is the Leafs.

Apologies for the length, but it's a quick read. Thank you, and good night.
Thanks Amsterhammer, by your fine research you have just confirmed everything I have said in a previous couple of posts.

The self-serving lack of any public sense is, naturally, appalling; while the mendacity of their statements, which aren't even remotely connected to reality, is grotesque. These guys have no problem with taxation funding the NDDA, but helping the poor with healthcare is evil? And they insolently call themselves Christians?! As far as I'm concerned these folks can just rot in their own provincial hell of America, but then I remember that they are represented by pervious ideologues that want to change everything around the planet and so must be bitterly opposed. For this reason Obama, per force, must have been viewed as the better candidate.

Afterwards I went back and looked it up, it seems it wasn't nearly as bad as I had thought, I was refering to Julia Gillard becoming prime minister

Ahh, back in 2010. The factional bully boys who run the unions put Gillard into power after the massive knifing. Considering the lies she told to get to the leadership, it was quite bad.

Also, can we stop pretending that Rasmussen and Gallup are legitimate polls?
He didn't even do anything spectacular. If you went to realclearpolitics.com and just checked the averages of the polls per state, it was clear that Obama had an advantage in almost all swing states. Rasmussen's polls were clearly a statistical anomaly. The only thing that was still a bit of a mystery was the popular vote.

Unless each and every poll was skewed Obama's re-election was pretty much a given. But that seems to be what the Republican party is about: despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, still holding your beliefs. That's what hardcore religion does to you.
