Third party Canadites usually run knowing this. The reason they are there is to bring up issues that the other 2 parties would not.

You're forgetting the Florida issue.

No I'm not. The point remains you can win the popular vote and still lose. Look at Hayes and Harrison. They were questionable elections but still.

Questionable elections, though. I'm a cynic by nature. I can sit here for hours and brake down a controversy, I thrive on the stuff. For everything "questionable" that happens, something has to have been bauched up.

EDIT: See HBO's special, "Recount", with Kevin Spacey.

I can tell you why I think Hoffa had Marilyn Monroe murdered in just a paragraph.

That's not true. He got no electoral votes because he did not win the popular vote in any state. No electoral college since the civil war has awarded it's votes to anyone other then the candidate who won the popular vote in that state.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

God this woman is a genius. She was interviewed by Charlie Gibson (I'll pull up the transcript) and her knowledge of the Bush doctrine has made me love her. I know it's something everyone should be familiar with since its dictated our foreign policy for so long, but she truly has a very rare insight.

GIBSON: Do you agree with the Bush doctrine?
PALIN: In what respect, Charlie?
GIBSON: The Bush -- well, what do you -- what do you interpret it to be?
PALIN: His world view.
GIBSON: No, the Bush doctrine, enunciated September 2002, before the Iraq war.
PALIN: I believe that what President Bush has attempted to do is rid this world of Islamic extremism, terrorists who are hell bent on destroying our nation. There have been blunders along the way, though. There have been mistakes made. And with new leadership, and that's the beauty of American elections, of course, and democracy, is with new leadership comes opportunity to do things better.
GIBSON: The Bush doctrine, as I understand it, is that we have the right of anticipatory self-defense, that we have the right to a preemptive strike against any other country that we think is going to attack us. Do you agree with that?
