+1 for Scotch on the rocks with a splash of water.


Scotch on the rocks and you have to keep sipping until the correct amount of melt takes place...the sweet spot. Then there's nothing like it. Scotch sucks outside of the sweet spot.



I was always told that the ice sucks out all the scotch, so you have to keep adding more.

I've never argued the point.

Right?

I don't start sipping until it melts.

After the third or fourth, I'm not sure I'm sipping at all, let alone tasting ....

if ohio is close by like 3%, is it true that the "expected" 200k provisional voter slips can delay the count by almost 2 weeks?

is ohio really that important here?

What is that silly bunny going to do?


This thread
www.abovetopsecret.com...

Im libertarian..as far as I can label. So, I will have fun either way... choosing your victory or loss quote to use as my signature.. make it a good one.


On a serious note, someone was whining about this thread. I am really starting to wonder about folks.
IN THIS thread I have seen more dems and repubs getting along than in the multitude of others. I think its very good..and feels good.. to see that we can be friends and have fun with each other regardless of party affiliation. SO THERE!

I don't think there's much to celebrate if either candidate wins. We know where were at, where we've been, and how big the hole is... IMO it's to deep and full of BS, and the shovel is very small.

Later Everyone, time for me to leave the office, get my boy from daycare, grab a six pack of Victory Golden Monkey, go home and watch the results come in!

Regardless of your horse in this race, I wish you all a pleasant evening and better tomorrow, and we'll see you all here again in the morning... and hopefully Beezzer will keep his fluffy avatar.

Take care ATS types,

D

OH! Is this a political thread?

I thought is was a "buddy buddy" drinking thread no matter who wins.


Do I have to get serious


So MSNBC is stating they think Obama has Virginia because of the large turnout.

Just imagine the mess Obama is going to inherit this time around! Worse unemployment, larger debt, more angry people. He did so well the past 4, I can only imagine the triumph the 2nd term will be. Perhaps he'll succeed in the total destruction of the United States.

Making this pertinent to the thread again, I have an unopened The Macallan 12yr Sherry Oak in the ol cabinet that I may dust off tonight - in either a fit of celebration or depression

I just could not bring myself to vote this election. It's my first time not showing up to the polls. I campaigned for Obama first time around helped elect him. But after signing away my constitutional rights and having American citizens assassinated... i..iiii just cant do it! And i really pulled for the man
feels a little depressed I did not vote for anyone.

When Barry shows me Bin Laden's corpse then maybe, just maybe. Thing is when the Republican party black balled Ron Paul I knew the whole thing was rigged for certain. Same applies for the dem's. But still I rather see Obama win over that tool Romney. If he does then I will celebrate with ya



Basically where im at...

I'm getting in on this.

I've been telling (mostly on other sites) conservatives that the race hasn't been as close as they claim it to be.

Take Nate Silver's figures, for example. Think Nate Silver is too biased to be trusted? Ok. Take Sam Wang's figures at the Princeton Election Consortium. Or look at RealClearPolitics, or Intrade, or just about anybody. Even Dick Morris and the abysmally crazy folks at Unskewed Polls have stopped kidding themselves about their 'Romney landslide' dreams.

Romney supporters have bought into the 'horse race' meme being peddled by the pundits on TV. What they don't realize is that the pundits most likely realize it isn't very close (Obama's not set for a landslide by any means, and obviously he's not even a shoe-in) but their jobs certainly depend on selling that narrative to bring in viewers.

By the time all is said and done - whether that's tomorrow morning or weeks from now - Republicans and partisan conspiracists in general will be left gobsmacked wondering how Obama won when they were soo certain the American people had 'woken up' to his 'socialist tricks' and were ready to throw him out. That's the problem of living in the online echo chamber, I guess, where they only look at cherry-picked polls and read editorials that support their conclusions. Rather than becoming introspective about how to have a better election in 2016, they'll blame it on fraud, or Hurricane Sandy, or Benghazi...and will basically not learn from their mistakes.

Anyways, like I said earlier in the comment, Obama's not a shoe-in. The gulf isn't as big and obvious as it was in 2008. But I'm feeling confident, and any other Obama supporter who's been plugged into the statistics side of this election cycle (and not the news-for-profit, political hack side) should be feeling relatively good as well.
