182. so we're not amused?
I'm only "visiting" because I was asked to.


That drama queen shit was your specialty if I remember right.

Don't be modest:

I'm not the least interested in playin'. There is never any outcome here.
1) I ain't playin' here. (c. two years ago)

You have to admit it sounds a little emo by the second repetition. I've had my moments of angst, but you didn't hear me sulk about Mt. Olympus when my oxen were laid low.

He who argues only with himself...
...need never worry about losing to anyone else. (c. 2.4 years)

Connolly's "we" is inclusive.

Not what I had in mind:
This analysis is based on original, unpublished research by web commentator, anaxarchos, to whom I owe a debt of gratitude

For this study, we chose the less controversial approach of using the final, revised exit poll with a focus on the stated purposes of the exit poll, who were the voters and where did they cast their ballots. (sic) Why not take the numbers the pollsters finalized the day after the election. (sic)

Who is the "we" that conducted this study? I realize you can't take credit for the analysis, but maybe you possess insight into the "unpublished research" that begot it. Is it locked in a safe somewhere? Did it include this "study", or was that designed by a team of scoopco experts? On that note, scoop's lack of research capability strikes me as odd (without a certain spiritual presence, hence "Any good mediums out there?"? (-DU)), especially when the "original" researcher shows up to announce he can only answer James Connolly related questions.

According to the Exits Polls, something was happening in the big cities and it was happening in a big city way.

Well, I've never left the Truth Train. And since you never bought a ticket to the promised land of the Truth, the Train has left you far behind.
