  1. Alright, Detective Pikachu looks crazy fun. I'm in!

      I kinda want to see it too.

  2. Brooklyn Nine Nine is so damn binge-able.

      It very much is. Is tbs still going through with continuing on with the show?

      @KHCast I hope so! I'm near the end of season 2 and don't want it to ever end.

  3. https://apnews.com/41a1a6f79af548ddbdeedf3e1b6d1c80?utm_source=Twitter&utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_medium=AP As of last night, the Democratic lead had increased to 21k: Meanwhile, in Florida, more good news... The worst part about these midterms are the fact that McConnell's quest (carrying on at a break-neck pace by all accounts) to pack the courts with conservative judges will continue at least until 2020, if not beyond, which will have far-reaching ramifications for future Democratic presidencies and matters ranging from civil rights and immigration to gun ownership to abortion. I don't know how this process really works, so I don't know if near future Democratic presidents and senates will be able to similarly pack the courts, or if there'll even be any vacancies left to fill, but it's depressing AF.
  4. Mueller must truly be ending the investigation, as rumours purported, and/or genuinely believe the investigation to be under imminent threat of closure by pro-Trump forces in the DoJ, or he wouldn't be targeting the first family directly. Shit, meet fan.
  5. In retrospect, Sandy Hook marked the end of the US gun control debate,” Dan Hodges, a British journalist, wrote in a post on Twitter two years ago, referring to the 2012 attack that killed 20 young students at an elementary school in Connecticut. “Once America decided killing children was bearable, it was over.

  6. Was that during the ongoing recount, or beforehand? Either way I'm pretty sure that's illegal - they have to count them, or they're committing electoral fraud. On the same subject, though... Arizona Republicans Are Suing to Limit Mail-In Ballot Counting During a Tight Senate Race
  7. If Trump replaces RBG, it'll be with another partisan hack. It will therefore be incumbent upon the next Democratic administration to increase the size of the SCOTUS to dilute the conservative element, and while they're at it, introduce term limits. Not just threaten to increase its size, but actually do it.
  8. Or, if Whitaker reduces Mueller's funding to the point where the investigation cannot function... ... could the House Dems fund the investigation? The House holds the government's purse strings, after all. Or could they even, in the event that the investigation is ended (and it looks like Trump/Whitaker will move to end it after a couple of months of almost no funding produces no results), take all its files, evidence etc and keep the investigation going over on Capitol Hill? Edit: Here we go... Could spell bad news for Mueller, as it really looks like the GOP are trying to kill the investigation in the window of time between the midterms and the day the House formally flips. This thread gives me some hope, though... Meanwhile, the administration has released a doctored video to justify Jim Acosta's WH Press Pass revocation...
  9. It's for a Senate seat, but still, tense as balls. Also: Damn right. What of Joe Arpaio? Please tell me that racist old rat didn't win.
  10. Thanks for the clarification. I'd honestly never heard it before, but I was becoming increasingly uncomfortable using the terms Latino/Latina. This gives me an out, so awesome. Scott Walker has lost his reelection bid in Wisconsin. Tony Evers will be the state's next governor. I hope he can do something about that abysmal Foxconn deal Walker saddled the state with.
  11. What is a 'Latinx'? Sounds like a Pokemon... Mitt Romney projected to win his race. Never thought I'd be glad to see his ugly mug... The new John McCain? North Dakota results will begin coming in shortly. Heidi Heitkamp's gotta be a nervous wreck tonight...
  12. And then there were two. Heck of a night, so far. I'm all over the place, emotionally.
  13. Silver felt his model was too aggressive and reverted it to a more conservative one for the time being. Let's again remind ourselves that the polls in the final week of 2016's election had Trump within the margin of error for winning, and any premature Clinton win predictions were by people and outlets ignoring that fact. Edit: While we await the results of the Cruz/O'Rourke bout (plenty of blue areas are yet to report), good news from New York!
  14. Joe Manchin has won his race in West Virginia, and Marsha Blackburn, who ran a blatantly racist attack ad involving the migrant caravan, has also won in Tennessee. To say this evening is an emotional roller-coaster would be a terrific understatement.
  15. Good news for the Democrats in the senate. Meanwhile...
  16. Small, yet satisfying news: https://jimheath.tv/2018/11/kim-davis-loses-reelection-bid-kentucky-official-jailed-for-not-issuing-same-sex-marriage-licenses/ Shalala basically fucked up in every way possible during the campaign. That she has won anyway is a good sign... I hope. Good stuff, Democrats need every vulnerable senator to win.
  17. Look who's engaging in election interference! That's right, the GOP.
  18. Invaluable insight into modern text lingo...

  19. Years-Late Werehog Thought: It would've been so much cooler if Sonic's Werehog form had been actually hog-like, let's say a cartoonish boar body profile, covered in sharp hedgehog spines.

    Moves could involve charging into enemies with tusks a-flarin', a rolling ball of spikes, a spine explosion, and tuskular melee.

  20. If the midterms go the Republicans' way in the House, Pelosi's career is over, of that much we can be certain. There'll be no room for the old guard to remain. Silver linings, and all that. On the other hand, if the blue wave is real, Pelosi will cling onto the top job until she dies or the Democrats lose the majority again. That's going to be so fun, she'll be a gigantic target for Republican ire.
  21. Well, this is extremely disturbing news...
  22. Basically, Kavanaugh as an associate SCOTUS justice exists solely to wreak havoc on any Democratic attempts to interfere with Trump's agenda or get to the truth of his taxes. Guess the next Democrat in the White House will have to expand the court to dilute the conservative influence, then. Some previous presidents, like FDR, have threatened to do just that, but the SCOTUS acquiesced before it could happen. In this day and age, I don't think it would. Gotta implement those term limits at the same time tho...
  23. It's not delivery, it'sa me, Mario.

  24. It's the same principle at work that causes horrific wars to vanish from the headlines - once people become used to it, it loses its 'special' factor and people become disinterested. News outlets, chasing ratings, move on to other stories until something else of interest comes up. Trump campaigning might've held the ratings in 2016, and might still draw some now, but it's a show we've all seen before. The man's a one trick pony, so even as president there's only so much invective he can scream into the void before we all turn our backs and lock our gazes in enraptured wonderment on the next big political star. Which is probably Beto O'Rourke. Maybe Cory Booker.
  25. As it turned out, the Assassin's Creed and Burnout game series' did not produce a wonderful mash-up. Quite the contrary...
