Trump got skewered tonight at the Nat.Correspondents Dinner in DC You should have seen his face! Priceless. How in the heck did he get invited? It only proves his ego is bigger than his pride since he had to know the jokes would be flying hot off the press about him. Seth Myers was brilliant. Check it out on c-span or as Seth said, the channel that always looks like there was a fire drill in the house.

It's the lead story right now, but clips will be there all day tomorrow too I am sure.

Obama 2012: The much-less shitty option out of two shitty options.

That's my campaign poster No, the minor U.S. parties are not a choice until some sort of real campaign finance reform is passed, which will never happen because the Democrats and GOP are too fond of lining their pockets.

Yeah, I'm going to have to have a custom bumpersticker made.

Isn't that always how we elect our presidents?

the whole electoral college concept is a joke
even if Bush won the popular vote in FL, he could have lost the national popular vote by millions and still been the rightfully elected President.

that each state gets one elector for each congressman is one thing

but one vote for each senator. that means Wyoming gets 2 votes for 580,000 people
and CA gets 2 votes for 38,000,000 people

Being from the very county where all of that nonsense unfolded, I can tell you that we did choose the better of the two

So... is Donald Trump's joke as a candidate a double agency job for the Democrats to make the Republicans look stupid?

exactly. the electoral college had its place during the early days of the us, but not anymore.

granted i'm no expert by any means but mmp (mixed member proportional) seems the better option than what we have. plus it gives third parties a chance to get some representation. no system is perfect, but to me this just seems better.

It's not a joke. It was a very wise inclusion by the founders of this country.

If elections were won based on just popular vote, then the east coast and west coast (the most populated states) would win every time.

That is a simplistic response
if you really go and analyze it and give it careful consideration you may come to a different conclusion.
