Is Rachel Maddow Really Going To Sell The Tied Election Scenario?

That's about as likely as Halle Berry asking to marry me...

There is a vast difference between possible and probable. A tie is not going to happen. The President will win decisively.

Cheer and tell everyone the Democratic party will win in a Landslide... Not to worry anyone?

We need our fellow Democrats out there to be scared so they will get off their asses and go VOTE!

Then it will be a Landslide!

19. Let me guess, your new here right? Your first statement is EXACTLY what LOADS of DU'ers

want and expect not only here, but on 'our' cable news shows. Anyone who disagrees is a:

1) Troll
2) Paid republican plant
3) poster lost on their way to Freeperville
4) a PUMA
5) a 'pearl clutcher'

You can pick as many as you want. Stick around and you will see it very clearly. DU, dispite this, is still a very valuble place for discussion.

Welcome to DU!

will get you to do for a $4,000,000 take home pay. Just think about it--God forbid but if something were to happen to David Gregory or Mika Brezinski, Rachel might find herself chatting it up on Meet the Press or better yet sippin on Starbucks next to Dead Intern Joe.

13. I can only stand her in smal doses. She has that DU affliction...

.. the one where you want to appear much smarter and much more "realistic" than anyone else. People like her are our own worst enemy. Cas in point.. the first debate. I don't care if your candidate walks out on stage and vomits, you come out and say it was the BEST vomit EVER, and your guy won!

15. Obama won the first debate

Not because of his presentation or what he had to say but simply because the other guy lied his ass off. You can not win based on lies. I will never concede to a liar, you shouldn't either.

17. Exactly. And none of these talking heads (except Sharpton maybe? O'Donnell?) went with that.

They all just piled on. That was when I stopped watching. Maybe after the election I'll go back. But all the whining and crying ... I just hate when we do that. I picture Republicans and Republican trolls everywhere just laughing about how weak and fragile we are.

18. I think sometimes in times of stress we attack our own.

Or those more sympathetic to Dems. Like Nate Silver. Rachel is awesome and I adore her journalism. She is a true liberal.

I emailed her show to let her know how disappointed I am that such a smart woman would be trying to sell such a stupid story.

20. Christ - It was a "what if" scenario. The minutia of the constitution

illustrated on the tee vee.

"what if" is fun and informative.

I'd suggest lightening up.

I find the recent attacks on Rachael interesting and similar.

She just found the process fascinating and wanted to educate her audience.

26. That sounds all reasonable and everything, BUT I JUST WANT TO BE HELD!

I haven't been on DU very long, but I understand emotion and reason. They are in no way related to each other.

I read and understand what you are saying. It makes sense.

My emotions want to know that PBO wins the election.

Like a lot of people, I can't stand hanging threads. I like decisions made. I suspect the controversy/Harumphing expressed on this thread is probably related to that, but the tiny little voice inside still wants to be comforted. So I'm talking up Obama/Biden2012 every chance I get.

Just my thinking, remember I'm new here.

25. We know the tie scenario is exceedingly unlikely...

So why are you guys being so sensitive about this? Any thinking person knows that Romney is anti-woman, anti-middle class and anti-minority. Don't get so nervous because she isn't playing liberal thought echo chamber all the time. She is respected for her intellect on both sides of the aisle.

And before you long timers jump on me I am a long time lurker and want to come here for positivity. To see headlines taken up by fear based speculation is trouble some. Stay positive GOTV and WE WILL WIN! The other side is racist, sexist, and greedy. We are the party of reason, progress and hope.

Ok I will step off my soapbox.

The thought of four years of Shit Romney is so awful I had to listen to what she was saying. Thank goodness for DU. I didn't know how unlikely a tie is.
