Democrats got 46% in the primary and R's got 54%. Looks to me like the R's are in control and the county is red.

Estonian Fox 622pm - You are correct, the awarded first prize will be of "untold value". Now I wish you would have submitted your list in the form of the candidate ID numbers as requested, and as did Mr Walt (although he entered #15 twice, thereby winding up with a sequence of 24). However, if you wish me to do the translation for the sake of our mutual old sod, I will ;-)

But I would respectfully request you both submit your entries as a comma-separated list of the candidate ID numbers - such as 14,7,2,16, ... . Thank you.

ToddJ 630pm - Todd, you're on the wrong commentary.

Walt

Shit....... And I looked it over three times.. OK,,OK... I will start wearing my glasses.
That #15 will drop out,, then re-enter the race,,, just to be found dirty, and have to drop out again....(There.. I just covered my ass)

George Rebane

Walt 720pm - Bullshit - be a good man and redo your list so I can easily copy/paste it into Excel, else I won't share the flagon of fine Irish sauce you ordered for me ;-)

What happens if our favorite non-convicted felon decides to rejoin the race & then drop out? I'll put her as #24, between 12 & 23, as a tie-breaker!

George Rebane

EstFox 737am - Thank you. So noted about Hillary. However, were that to happen, we could resume the competition with the survivors plus Hillary, with competitors resubmitting the then abbreviated dropout list.

Biden's Past Catches Up With Him As 2020 Campaign Mired In Crisis"

I assume that if two or more drop out on the same day, the order will be the actual time stamp of the drop out speech, not the time stamp of the scheduled concession speech...in case one does not commence on time or gets delayed. Maybe they will break up on Twitter or FB. It’s the woke thing to do nowadays.

Bill Tozer

PS: Wishing or wanting don’t count. If I were name the one Democrat candidate that every Dem pundit across the spectrum wants to see drop out first, I would name Kristen Gillibrand. But, who is going to tell a sitting US Senator that? Might come back to haunt ya with pending legislation before the distinguished body in the future.....

George Rebane

Well, it was a tough go, but the Rebanes went through a systematic process dividing candidates into 'before debates', 'before primaries', before convention', and 'at convention'. When the dust settled, this is what came out -

Mr Tozer, you are anything but ignored around here. Turns out that you entered you list while I was getting mine entered. So you beat me as the record shows.

OK George - I have to play catch up - making my list, checking it twice - looking to see who's naughty and who's not so naughty.
Sooo hard, lemme see, Lickenhooper, Swallowswell...

In fact, what's happened to the left? Who are their champions? Who and what do they support?
Just rock throwing and crickets.

Rocks and crickets Scott

I like that Well done

Right on the mark. The demoncrats will lose the House and we will keep the Senate and President. The left has nothing but hate. Paul Emery is a fine example f the vacuousness of the left. They have nada.

Walt

Emery is back to TROLL status. He won't state his position on anything.He knows it will come back to bite him in the ass.

DAMN!!!! Can we have a do over?
Biden my throw in the towel plenty sooner.(all the dirt on him is coming out by the dump truck load.)
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/06/07/joe-biden-1973-full-audio-emerges-of-rollicking-speech-senator-gave-to-cleveland-city-club/
"In addition to this audio, Breitbart News has obtained a 1972 newspaper clipping showing he made more insensitive remarks—saying he was a “phony liberal” while discussing being nice to minorities.

At the time of the 1973 speech, Biden was 30 years old and had just won an upset victory to the U.S. Senate from Delaware—a seat he would hold for seven terms. Although new to politics, Biden was introduced that evening by the club’s then-president Bertram Gardner, one of Cleveland’s African-American civic leaders, as a rising star with a “frank and candid” demeanor.” "

And it goes downhill from there.
I'm sure Joe will have plenty of excuses..
Then again,, LIB news will bury this so the general Proggy population won't hear of it.

Scott O

But Walt - the polls, the polls!
Biden up on Trump in Texas!
If Biden looks like he's the best they've got to take on Trump, the Dem establishment will run him no matter what. Plenty of time for others to rise or fall in the polls. We'll see.

Bill Tozer

It is interesting that as of the latest Rebane Update, we have 4 participants that say Biden will be the last man standing and 4 who think Warren will be the last man standing.

They way Biden has flip flopped under just one day of pressure, one must consider the possibility that Biden will drop out, change his mind, and jump back in again. That would mess up everything on the Loser Derby.

Bill Tozer

I hope Biden can keep iup. He obviously is pacing himself. He is doing half the appearances his competition is doing and avoiding the press. I don’t blame him. He got his deferment from Nam for asthma. Think it is catching up with him. Trump got his deferment for bone spurs, yet he still manages to hit the ground running everyday and his aides struggle to keep but with him. Not so with Sleepy Joe’s aides.

It is a smart strategy to keep Biden away from the crowds, press, and those high definition cameras. Less chance of Joe opening his mouth and pulling a Biden. “Oh, that’s just Joe.”

I just don’t see the Dems nominating anyone but an angry old white guy. They tried a woman last time and learned their lesson. Boy did they. But, it was the best they had and you gotta work with what you got. Biden is the best they got, asthma and all.

Don Bessee

There has to be an army of socialists digging up dirt on creepy grampa joe and spreading it around -

According the report, after he graduated college in 1968, Biden became eligible for the draft, which could have landed him in combat in Vietnam. What saved him, what earned him a 1-Y draft deferment, was asthma…

Asthma, y’all.

Asthma.

Don’t get me wrong, asthma can be debilitating. Chronic asthma is the worst; it can disable a person. If Biden legitimately suffered a serious asthma problem, his draft deferment is perfectly legitimate.

Here’s the problem, though…
While Biden was scoring a deferment for “asthma as a teenager,” he was — get this — also scoring touchdowns as a teenager.

Biden played football in high school and once went so far as to lie about playing football for the University of Delaware — even though he didn’t, but Biden is the kind of liar who lies about such things.

What’s more, InsideSources points out that in his autobiography, Biden makes no mention of asthma, but brags about being “active in intramural sports” while in college, and “recounts an active childhood [and] football exploits in high school.”

Worse still, during one summer home from college, as Biden himself has admitted, he worked as a lifeguard, which requires vigorous health in order to pass that test, including a very healthy set of lungs.

Just six years later, at the height of the fighting in Vietnam, that same poolside athlete avoided mandatory military service due to “asthma as a teenager.”
…”asthma as a teenager.”

Yep, healthy enough to play football and qualify as a lifeguard, which is no easy task, but still 1-Y when swimming is one of the most strenuous exercises around.

Trump haters can laugh all they want at Trump’s “bone spurs,” the reason behind his 1-Y classification, but snickers and cheap shots don’t contradict a bone spur diagnosis. It’s not like Trump was out running marathons at the time.

George Rebane

If Biden, or anybody, does drop out and then re-enter, it's easy enough to restart the competition with the scores at re-entry and everyone submitting their new dropout list on the then survivors.

Bill Tozer

Where do we bury the survivors?

Cut 387 of 1000 -

Biden’s decision to avoid Iowa comes after a week punctuated by slipping poll numbers, flip-flops, and gaffes.

Earlier in the week, Biden set off a firestorm among liberals by reaffirming his commitment to the Hyde Amendment, a federal rule banning tax dollars from being used for abortion except in cases of maternal health or if the pregnancy arose because of rape or incest.

Although Biden had voted for the rule continuously during his 40-year political career, the public acknowledgment drew a rise from groups and advocates on the left. Biden attempted to appease those detractors by saying he would continue to support the Hyde Amendment unless women were in a position to lose access to abortion.

That waffle was not suitable for many, with Planned Parenthood calling continued support for the rule “harmful.” After strong denunciation and pressure from the likes of Hollywood starlet Alyssa Milano, Biden acquiesced, saying “times had changed” and that he now favors scrapping the rule.

Since reversing his position, Biden has disappeared from view. The former vice president’s campaign released a limited schedule on Friday denoting meetings with advisers but no public appearances.

Biden’s failed 2008 presidential bid might shed some light on his disinclination to visit Iowa. In that race, he was initially considered a contender in the state, considering its heavy focus on retail politics. On election night, though, Iowa proved it was not very fertile ground, as Biden failed to crack one percent of the vote. He dropped out soon after.

Why only the right of centers participants in the derby? Where are all lefty crickets? Do they lack conviction? Or, the process too painful? Like to hear an explanation.

Don Bessee

Uh ya! No Shit!

Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates under President Obama reaffirmed that he believes former Vice President Joe Biden has been "wrong on most foreign policy issues" in the past 40 years, during an interview with David Axelrod on CNN's The Axe Files.

"[Biden] clashed with the Pentagon and with the leadership over Afghanistan, and you've been fairly critical of him at one point, saying he was wrong every foreign policy issue for 40 years,"Axelrod said. "Would you be comfortable with him as Commander in Chief?"

Gates replied that he thinks he will have to "wait and see" and if Biden is fit for the office.
"I think vice president did have some issues with the military and I did say that recently that I stand by the statement that I thought he had been wrong about most foreign policy issues for 40 years, especially during the Cold War.

Bill Tozer

I am concerned about Biden, but for a different reason than stated above. I watched him yesterday and towards the end he looked like he was fading. He looked like he was out of gas, running on fumes.
. He is getting up there in years and I was surprised (taken back) by how much it shows. One cannot imagine him standing against fresh energetic candidates of his own party and trying to pull it off. The contrast is just too great to hide.
Yes, there is a long way to go, but I don’t think Joe has the physical strength a grueling national campaign requires. At the end of watching Biden, looking into his eyes and reading his countenance, I flashed on a collapsing Hillary being tossed into the back of the black SUV. Makes me wonder if he has the strength or stamina to physically be the last man standing. I see it getting worse, not better. Darn.

Walt

Beat me to it Walt.

Now, the chorus line of twenty on the stage for show and tell is important, but some will stick around anyway. I knew Yang would be around just because of ego and Asian money behind him. Just a good donor or two and you can ride this for awhile. Glad to see Tulsi still standing. Easy on the eyes and I love a gal in uniform. And Punchy will be happy that his beloved taskmaster who eats salads with her comb and have underlings clean it for her afterwards is still in the running. Boy, when they asked her about day of birth abortions, she took off running, lol.

And of course Swelwell has to stick around to serve his useful purpose.
