My prediction for GD for the next two weeks:
Last week - Smoking Wars. (okay, technically this isn't a prediction since it already occurred.)

This week - the topic will be Abortion early in the week, switching to SUV's And The Assholes Who Drive Them as the week winds down.

Next week - we'll move on to Those PETA Douchebags, followed by Why Do Women Hate Nice Guys.

Interspersed through here we will have the Give Up The Vote is Rigged contingent, with perhaps even a good old-fashioned Laura Branigan dustup just for fun.

Not that any of this is bad, necessarily, just real predictable. Carry on.

7. Well, under most circumstances, I don't think you'd find too many
DUers willing to argue against gay marriage. It's the same for Walmart - most people are openly opposed to them, and the ones who don't think Walmart is Evil Incarnate mostly just keep quiet.

But your point is well taken - if it's not one thing, it's another!

2. Very good trend analysis
OF course, you've been here long enough to know what to expect.

You can almost set your watch by some of this stuff.

25. If you overlooked anything
you may have overlooked the Hillary bashing. However, it will likely be light until after Nov 7.

3. My analysis indicates a landslide of sexism for the next two weeks...
Prepping the ground for a 'Daschilization' of Rep. Pelosi.

This is of course not being driven by forces within DU, but, is largely
driven by outside influences and a few trolls.

4. Heheh. Yeah there seems to be a contingent... (oh and K&R)

...intent on posting stuff that recycles old flame wars in this the critical last couple of weeks before the election. And judging from the number of responses, they are succeeding on distracting DUers from GOTV and campaign issues.

Me I'm staying away even from the smoking threads, until after the majority chairmanship elections.

15. "Majority chairmanship elections" has a very nice ring to it.
I'll be afraid to login here November 8 if we don't do well. :scared:

11. Oooh, good question.
You should put that in a poll. Make sure one of the choices is "YES!!! But I can't remember why".

18. I think the smokers and anti-smokers have worn themselves out.
Did anyone ever ask the anti-smokers how many of them light up The Reefer? That is something I'd be curious to know.

12. What about that anti-Christian pit bull who killed Terri Schaivo
Should it get the death penalty?

17. Sounds about right.
I started a thread during the weekend urging people who hadn't registered, to do so. What did I get for my trouble? Ridicule and scorn.

Made my mind right there I will never start a New Topic here again.

I took it about a year and a half ago... Haven't started a new topic since.

22. That was an oldie but a goodie from the Lounge.
Turns out that Laura Branigan was a hack, or so said a DUer, on the day Laura's death was announced. Hilarity ensued.

30. If we didn't have plenty of trolls
before the elections we'd feel positively rejected, like we didn't get enough trick or-treaters...
Come out, come out wherever you are....laying out the troll treats :popcorn: :beer:
