re: Democracy Dies in Darkness - AUFANATL
I can't figure out why rank and file journalists are so opposed to the Trump Administration. I know they overwhelmongly lean liberal Democrat and hate Trump's personality. That part makes sense. What I can't figure out is why they have quadrupled down on Deep State propaganda. Why the f--k...

re: BYU getting roasted on Twitter for running fake punt up 49-14 with 5 mins left - AUFANATL
IIRC, Lou Holtz, when he was at Notre Dame, did the exact same thing to Boston College in 1992 when they were up big at the end of the game, so he could score 50 points. Boston College and Tom Coughlin were pissed about the fake punt and circled that dame on the calendar. They beat ND the next...

re: Draftkings to refund ML bets made on PSU - AUFANATL
They probably realized they will get a million dollars worth of free publicity and advertising for doing this stunt while only giving out $10,000 worth of credit. ...

re: World Series Thread - TB Rays vs LA Dodgers Game 4: Rays win 8-7...series tied 2-2 - AUFANATL
Absolutely crazy how many bad plays there were to end that game. Terrible pitch to a .200 hitter, who hadn't swung a bat in forever and was down 2 strikes. Terrible glovework to boot the ball in the outfield knowing you aren't going to stop the tying run anyway - you front that ball and make...

re: World Series opener had the lowest rating ever recorded - AUFANATL
To some extent the post-season (MLB, NHL or NBA) builds on what happens during the regular season. It's the cherry on top of a sundae we have been slowly eating for months. But this year the regular season was practically a toss away for most sports so it's not surprising that bled over into the...

re: Jerry rice or randy moss - AUFANATL
I lean Rice but he played in an era where defenders headhunting, checking and arm wrestling were tolerated by the league and refs. His value was partly based on his technique relentless determination to overcome any obstacle a defense threw at him by the rules of the time. Today's game coddles...

re: Bannon asks guy who saw graphic pics on Hunter’s hard drive: “How horrific 1-10?” - AUFANATL
I'm somewhat dubious of this. My mom has several pictures of me naked as a baby (eg, 'Dad changing his first diaper! or 'baby taking his first bath!'') that she willingly shared with friends and family. If this is just normal family baby pictures uncensored, then it's a complete non issue. ...

re: Trump at 46% approval with likely black voters. - AUFANATL
[quote]What states might the black vote flip for Trump?[/quote] Not flip, but hold. Swing states he barely won in 2016 that have significant black population: Michigan - 15% (mostly Detroit) Pennsylvania - 12% (mostly Philly) Florida - 16% (all types down there) Let's reasonably assum...

re: What are the real chances Repubs take the house? - AUFANATL
I think there are 18 seats that Democrats flipped in the 2018 "blue wave" midterm elections that are located in districts that Trump won in 2016. He won half of them by more than 7 points. Conventional wisdom says these are the most likely takeover targets. But Democrats have poured a TON of ...

re: Did they actually cut TRUMP's mic in the debate? - AUFANATL
I'm not a conspiracy theorist but there were a few moments where it looked like Biden oddly interjected a comment as if he was fed something through an earpiece. It just didn't seem natural. If I want to torture myself by rewatching a debate, maybe I will find the moments where it stood out. ...

re: I live about 40 miles west of Nashville. Fighter jets are buzzing my house. - AUFANATL
There's a guy in Nashville who owns several of the few remaining P-51 Mustangs that are still fly-able. When I lived there I remember seeing him fly them over head. Nothing is more awesome than seeing a pristine P-51 buzzing your house - like that scene in [i]Empire of the Sun[/i]. ...

re: House of Rep elections - AUFANATL
I live in a competitive district that is getting a lot of attention. The Democrat incumbent was one of the surprise "blue wave" freshmen who defeated a Republican incumbent in a district Trump easily carried the previous cycle. The amount of money being poured into her campaign is obscene. Ever...

re: Explain to me how 2020 is different than 2018 - AUFANATL
Look at election history. It usually goes like this: 1. New Party takes over White House 2. 2 years later, New Party gets hammered in Mid Terms 3. 2 years later, New Party easily wins re-election 4. 2 years later, New Party is mired in Lame Duck apathy or scandal 5. 2 years later, New...

re: Huge Red Wave Is Coming...Place Your Bets - AUFANATL
The key will be building a solid lead in states that total more than 290 EVs. If the margin of victory is within one swing state after the election dust settles, Democrats will find the most favorable state to go ballot hunting and chaos will ensue. ...

re: Lisa murkowski being a beotch (acb related) - AUFANATL
[quote]She wasn't voted in as a Republican. She was voted in as an independent.[/quote] That's not accurate. She won the Republican primary in 2016 and won re-election as a Republican. In 2010, angry Republicans mounted a primary challenge against her and she lost the primary. Unbelievably, ...

re: Californian court orders San Quentin prison population reduced by 50 percent - AUFANATL
San Quentin is no joke. That's where the most severe offenders in California go and that's also where they house their Death Row inmates. It's also presently home to the world's largest collection of serial killers. Interested to see how this shakes out as most of the inmates there are probab...

re: This weekend was by far the worst sports weekend of my life - AUFANATL
I had a friend who once resorted to calling his old elementary school to find out if their football team won. His high school, college and pro teams all lost so he called up some secretary at the elementary school and said, "look I really need you to find out if the football team won this week...

re: Why does it go bad for Kershaw in the postseason so much? - AUFANATL
He's dominated the Braves in the playoffs up until the 6th inning tonight. We were like the only team who hasn't taken out some frustration on him. Couldn't have come at a better time. Either way, he's still a first ballot HOFer. But yeah, that's a noticeable smudge on his resume. ...
