Larry Sabato accuses Virgina Governor, and others, of rigging the ballot process in order to advantage Mitt…

Political analyst Larry Sabato said some people are upset because they believe the ballot process in the state was rigged.

“The governor of Virginia, Bob McDonnell strongly supports Mitt Romney and hopes to be on the ticket for vice president. The lieutenant governor of Virginia is the head of the Romney campaign in Virginia. They control the GOP apparatus,” said Sabato, who is the director of University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. “I think there’s some truth to this. There has never been such careful checking of the signatures before.”

Meanwhile, news that the Basque separatists really are … separate:


Basque roots revealed through DNA analysis

The Genographic Project announced today the most comprehensive analysis to date of Basque genetic patterns, showing that Basque genetic uniqueness predates the arrival of agriculture in the Iberian Peninsula some 7,000 years ago. Through detailed DNA analysis of samples from the French and Spanish Basque regions, the Genographic team found that Basques share unique genetic patterns that distinguish them from the surrounding non-Basque populations.

Published in the American Journal of Human Genetics, the study was led by Lluis Quintana-Murci, principal investigator of Genographic’s Western European regional center. “Our study mirrors European history and could certainly extend to other European peoples. We found that Basques share common genetic features with other European populations, but at the same time present some autochthonous (local) lineages that make them unique,” said Quintana-Murci. “This is reflected in their language, Euskara, a non-Indo-European language, which altogether contributes to the cultural richness of this European population.”

The genetic finding parallels previous studies of the Basque language, which has been found to be a linguistic isolate, unrelated to any other language in the world. It is the ancestral language of the Basque people who inhabit a region spanning northeastern Spain and southwestern France and has long been thought to trace back to the languages spoken in Europe prior to the arrival of the Indo-European languages more than 4,000 years ago. (English, Spanish, French and most other European languages are Indo-European.) Genographic Project researchers studied mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), which has been widely applied to the study of human history and is perhaps best known as the tool used to reveal ‘Mitchondrial Eve,’ the female common ancestor of all modern humans who lived in Africa approximately 200,000 years ago. It has also been used to study regional variation both within and outside Africa, providing detailed insights into more recent migration patterns.

[…]

Hmm… predates 7000 years ago. Which means the Basque ancestors predate Adam and Eve. I wonder if Kirk Cameron will allow that his rules on marriage, derived from Adam and Eve, then won’t apply to the Basques, and thus gay Basques are free to marry?

re: #20 Obdicut

Wow. Lotta hypocrisy there.

Does PETA have a sentience scale?

So far as I know, no, they don’t make a distinction on sapience/sentience of animals in what they protest. But then again I don’t think weighed consideration is part of their milieu. The “companion animal” versus “pet” distinction is really flimsy, and largely euphemism. PETA is mostly about sensationalism and funding the next ad campaign; they’re one of those groups where the disbursement of funds doesn’t in the slightest bit match the mission statement.

I personally don’t like the ideas of the big whales in captivity—there’s studies of the standing stress levels and a bunch of other stuff that bother me. But the whole “slavery” thing gets my back up.

1832: More from ABC exit polls: seven in ten voters in Tennessee described themselves as evangelical Christian, a greater share than any other contest this year. Three-quarters said it was important the candidate shared their religious beliefs, which may not bode particularly well for Romney, a Mormon.

I’m slightly curious why it was this one incident that is bringing him down.

The best I got is that he attacked a specific person, which makes his attacks less abstract, combined with his insinuation about those women in the nation who are taking Birth Control. That meant many people could see themselves or their loved ones in Fluke. And people get more riled up against Rush then before because it’s personal.

37 freetoken  Tue, Mar 6, 2012 3:43:01pm

More complete, from ABC directly:

TENNESSEE – A conservative electorate characterizes turnout in Tennessee today: seven in 10 voters are evangelicals, more than in any other primary this year; three-quarters say it matters that a candidate shares their religion beliefs, much higher than in earlier contests where this was asked; and four in 10 describe themselves as “very” conservative, again, more than usual this year. More than two-thirds of voters in the Tennessee primary are Republicans, down from about three-quarters in 2008. While these figures may buoy Santorum’s prospects, he does face hurdles in Tennessee. Preliminary exit poll results indicate that seniors, typically a good group for Romney, are turning out in larger than customary numbers for the state. Four in 10 voters name Romney as the most likely candidate to defeat Obama in November – lower than usual this cycle, but still about double the number who say so about either Santorum or Gingrich. And, as in Ohio, four in 10 voters pick electability as the most important candidate quality, nearly twice the number looking mainly for either a true conservative or for experience.

True. However, he asked Fluke to post sex videos online so all the people that are “paying for her birth control pills” could watch. I think the stench was too much to bear at that point.

Out of all the news stories I’ve read over the past week, this very well may be the one that infuriates me the most.

Govt. agencies, colleges demand applicants’ Facebook passwords

If you think privacy settings on your Facebook and Twitter accounts guarantee future employers or schools can’t see your private posts, guess again.

Employers and colleges find the treasure-trove of personal information hiding behind password-protected accounts and privacy walls just too tempting, and some are demanding full access from job applicants and student athletes.

In Maryland, job seekers applying to the state’s Department of Corrections have been asked during interviews to log into their accounts and let an interviewer watch while the potential employee clicks through wall posts, friends, photos and anything else that might be found behind the privacy wall.
Previously, applicants were asked to surrender their user name and password, but a complaint from the ACLU stopped that practice last year.

I think the current GOP candidate campaign has raised sensitivity in general. This makes Rush’s rants more topical, but also raised the risk that a push over the top would generate more massive pushback than it normally like.

And combined with the personal-ness of the attack it might have struck a
chord with a lot of people who feel their rights (and those of their loved ones) are under an increasingly large assault.

That and when you actually watch her testimony, you quickly realize just how dishonest Rush is being. She never once mentions her sex life, or anyone’s sex life. Her testimony was limited to insurance coverage for contraception and she points out that women take birth control pills for more than just avoiding pregnancy.

His lies are immediately obvious to anyone who cares to look. Plus, we’re in a very tech-savvy age where social media plays a big part. It’s real easy to tweet and share and post on Facebook, so it’s real easy for people to express their outrage and mobilize to defend Sandra Fluke.

I think it’s an intersection of factors—an important one being the one you pointed out.

But he also went to a new low in term of direct crassness, and gave himself no maneuver room to claim absurdity or satire.

Also, Rush’s schtick often involves exploiting ignorance—where he gets to control the narrative…by lies and exaggeration…of what his target said/did, so that his insults are framed properly. So not only do ditto-heads feel justified in agreeing, but reasonable people aren’t in a position to contradict him. This was the case with a lot of his “political correctness gone mad” rants in the 90s/00s: the original story would be incredibly obscure, so his version would be the only one circulating.

This time he told an obvious lie about Fluke’s testimony and followed up with an outpouring of hate. There’s no way no to retroactively claim a mistake or that he was being clever: the lie was obvious, which makes the scale of his reaction seem either pathological or insincere (or both).

LaBarbera Says it is ‘Tragic’ that Paul Babeu is Gay, Accuses Gays of ‘Political Terrorism’

On Americans For Truth About Homosexuality Radio Hour, AFTAH president Peter LaBarbera spoke with board members John McCartney and Jim Finnegan about Sheriff Paul Babeu, the Republican candidate for Congress in Arizona who recently came out as gay after his ex-boyfriend accused him of trying to deport him, and Babeu’s claim that he was assaulted by a priest when he was a child. LaBarbera claimed that Babeu is gay because he was abused as a child and is “not a natural homosexual but a victim of a homosexual predator.” “The saddest thing of all when you see somebody who has been is a victim of a pedophile,” LaBarbera said, “is to then say that when you have these unnatural sexual attractions and feelings, to say that you’re ‘gay’ or ‘lesbian’ when you’re obviously just a victim of a predator, that is so tragic.”

You’ll notice a lot of the mouthbreathers writing about this are referring to “$3,000 worth of condoms”. But most people assume that a woman testifying would be talking about the pill, which, of course, she was.

So they already have to start off with a lie, and it’s a pretty implausible one.

re: #54 Lidane

That and when you actually watch her testimony, you quickly realize just how dishonest Rush is being. She never once mentions her sex life, or anyone’s sex life. Her testimony was limited to insurance coverage for contraception and she points out that women take birth control pills for more than just avoiding pregnancy.

His lies are immediately obvious to anyone who cares to look. Plus, we’re in a very tech-savvy age where social media plays a big part. It’s real easy to tweet and share and post on Facebook, so it’s real easy for people to express their outrage and mobilize to defend Sandra Fluke.

I think there is another contributing factor that I would call a critical mass factor. The assaults on women’s healthcare have been hitting fast and hard with more states passing or trying to pass the invasive sonogram bills, the Komen and Republican attacks on Planned Parenthood including the nonsense here in Texas that is costing low income women Medicaid funding, etc. Add Limbaugh calling women taking birth control sluts and prostitutes and his misogynist minions spewing their bile and the Uterati has come out in battle dress ready to draw blood in righteous self defense.

RON PAUL.

NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul remained defiant Tuesday evening in the face of no primary wins, rallying his fervent supporters to his pet causes of civil liberties and an overhaul of the country’s monetary system.

He gave no definitive statement of how long he’d continue his struggling campaign. But he told supporters here that his campaign has sent a clear warning message to voters that government grows endlessly, ignores personal privacy and spends too much money.

“If we set a standard of individual liberty, the rest of the world will notice,” Paul told supporters amid loud cheers. “It’s much easier to promote our cause through peaceful deeds than through war.”

Earlier Tuesday, Paul urged voters in Idaho to caucus for him on the promise of a smaller federal government, $1 trillion in federal spending cuts and an administration dedicated to liberty.

Paul said he chose to spend Super Tuesday in Idaho because it’s one of the states where poll numbers show his campaign is strongest.

As Advertisers Flee Limbaugh, Pro-Gingrich SuperPAC Buys More Time

As advertisers continue to bail from “The Rush Limbaugh Show” after the host called a law student a “slut” and “prostitute,” the superPAC supporting GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has essentially doubled down.

Gingrich himself has denounced Limbaugh’s remarks, but it hasn’t cooled the pro-Gingrich group Winning Our Future.

“Actually, we bought more,” Rick Tyler, a senior adviser for Winning Our Future, tells NPR. Tyler says the superPAC expanded its media buy for pro-Gingrich spots on the show because the conservative talk host “reaches more listeners who are likely primary voters in all the states than anybody else.”

Tyler declined to say how much was spent on the ads, but says they are a “big part” of a national media buy in Super Tuesday states. He says the ads will continue to run in such states as Kansas, Alabama and Mississippi, which hold their primaries next week.

re: #276 Charles Johnson

It’s going to be fascinating to see how Santorum and Gingrich’s supporters deal with having to back Romney if he holds on to get the nomination. Obviously, their own candidates are terrible, but at the same time they know Romney is a blatant fraud who is only winning because he has more money (and I guess because the Governor of Texas can’t remember more than two things at once).

He Rick Perry can remember two things at the same time…. it’s three three things at once where he has his problems.

Santorum’s opened up a 10K lead in Ohio. If he holds on and wins, he “proves” he can win a big state.

And Mitt will tack further to the right.
