| Political Talk|| Why are they already reporting results for Florida? - rankintiger on 1/31/12 at 6:39 pm|
Why are the news channels already reporting results for Florida? The polls in the Panhandle don't close until 7:00. People that haven't voted yet could decide to just stay home or have their vote swayed one way another based on the results that are already being reported. Didn't these news folks ...

According to Ed Henry, the VP played golf in Delaware today. I know he's not nearly as hands-on as our previous VP, but shouldn't he have a political advisor tell him this was not the best day for golf?

Irene first made landfall about 17 hours ago. We all agree comparing them is worse than apples and oranges but how many deaths and how much damage had occurred 17 hours into Katrina vs the minimal damage so far today? And let's just hope we can still say minimal damage tomorrow night....

| Political Talk|| Who will replace Beck next month and how far will the ratings fall? - rankintiger on 6/23/11 at 12:13 am|
Any guesses on who Roger Ailes will put in Beck's time slot after next Thursday? He has dominated that hour of cable news more than anyone ever imagined possible. IMO, the only way they get comparable ratings would be to bring in someone just as polarizing like Boortz or another radio personality. I...

Voters simply went into the polling place and wrote down who they wanted to be in each office. Then, the ...
