Re: 'This is their new hoax'

Good thing Twitter wasn't around in the 1930's. Imagine the avalanche of hate that would've spewed forth when FDR diminished the hunger, pestilence, and abject tragedy for millions of Americans who were suffering and would suffer through the Great Depression when he staged that "...only thing to fea...

Re: 'This is their new hoax'

Btw, Trump now saying he's getting out of Walter Reed around 6PM today, Monday. No doubt he'll start framing this whole event as evidence that Covid isn't that bad and that if he, an obese, old guy can get it and brush it off, then everyone should. The Trumpkins will never wear masks now.

Re: 'This is their new hoax'

But Trump rallies though... Yep, we should expect no more from our leaders (especially in a time of crisis) than the average protest marcher or spring break vacationer. No doubt, but from Trump to Biden to Pelosi to McConnell to Schumer to whomever, we have perhaps the worst collection of leaders a...

Re: Oddsmakers Have NO Clue!

Well, Kansas is terrible. Maybe they thought only winning by 2 TD's against that disaster of a team was a knock on Coastal? And Arkansas St had beaten a far better Kansas St team and had lost a close game to top 25 Memphis up to this point. I don't think the odds, if those were true, were crazy. Ark...

Re: 2020 General Election

There is literally no way to catch fraud after the fact, unless someone videos themselves committing the fraud. Heck, in PA, there wasn't even a way to do recounts until this election - you literally pressed a button, hoped your vote was counted correctly, and walked away. No confirmation of who yo...

Re: Why Do We Not Have Updated FCS Rankings?

Something like 80% of the FCS isn't playing and there's no championship this fall. There's a spring season that will happen with most of FCS playing, with a championship. There's no polls right now because there's no FCS right now. Wait till the spring.

John Kerry. When he came out with his Vietnam video wearing a genade bandolier, that took the cake.
His whole schtick of "reporting for duty" at the Democratic convention that year was particularly lame.

I still go with Dole as my pick - he barely had a pulse at that point.
