1. I expect it will get a new name!

I'll wait with you.

Won't be long now.

2. Mind if I hang out, too?

It's like waiting on the sidewalk for a grand opening. I'll bring a cooler...and a heater, since it's pretty cold out.

3. Please join us, my dear Fridays Child!

The heater sounds like a great idea! And yes, the cooler too...

I might even have a tent we can live in......

6. Anybody have a Coleman stove?

I can make steak, fried taters, and spaghetti, if someone brings a Coleman stove.

4. I hope we get to keep this forum. Perhaps as 'Politics 2013' - since there will be elections in 2013


... Special elections, Gubernatorial elections, etc.

And of course in 2013 there will still be TONS of 'politics' to talk about




As a side note. I was wondering where the heck the word 'GUBERnatorial' came from - answer below

Origin of GUBERNATORIAL
Latin gubernator governor, steersman, from gubernare to govern
First Known Use: 1734

8. There's still a company called 20th Century Fox. Not everything has to change.

2012 was a good year for politics. Let's stick with what we like, like a good vintage year.

18. I'm showing my age here, but this forum has had several different names

It started in 2003 and it was called General Discussion: Primaries. The Democratic Primaries were generating so much discussion that the Admins felt that they needed a separate forum. Once the primaries were over they decided to keep the forum and re-name it GD: Politics or something like that. Then we had GD: Presidency at one point.
