I felt that I was making it clear it was a smear, and quite a conspiratorial one too.

I seem to be shifting to a more left wing position on globalism and related matters, whilst adopting a moderate conservative position on social issues.

I just came too.. this really happen. :wink:

now i'm never coming back to FYM again because of this shameless rumormongering.

Time to get over that and move on.

You might also want to consider that sometimes people who aren't posting may still be browsing. It's against the forum rules even to trash-talk people who've been banned or suspended, let alone people who haven't.

Seriously? The guy is Obama's VP, Delaware Senator Joe Biden, and the woman is Obama's wife, Michelle.

I didn't recognize Biden with that goofy-ass smile, and I haven't seen that much of the Mrs.

I could easily edit it down to be the right pixel size, but the file size would still exceed the limits, by a lot. There's a pretty easy way of reducing the file size too, but it can't be done without making the animation look really, really, really shitty.

namkcuR 09-07-2008 02:48 AM

I went ahead and tried anyway, since it's pretty easy/non-time-consuming.

I had to make it pretty small to meet both the pixel size limit and the file size limit.

I have two variations. To do this, it's a mix of resizing the animation and culling the animation(where culling is simply a function that deletes every other frame of the animation, resulting in a choppier version of the animation).

So this first version is the bigger of the two, but since it's bigger, it required more culling(aka more frames deleted), so it looks choppier:

It's really just too choppy, imo.

Here is the second version - smaller, but somewhat less choppy:

https://img241.imageshack.us/img241/599/obama2br9.gif

Still not perfect.

Loss of quality is inherent to resizing an animation to this extent.

Anyway, if you want to use either one of them, go ahead, but please save and upload to space of your own if you can.

i hardly think this qualifies as trash-talk.

Bad news for the GOP in a number of states, some of the numbers are particularly stark.

State R D Other Period
AK 2,836 2,628 6,825 March-September
AZ 32,141 68,480 4,359 January-September
CA 46,497 417,793 117,313 January-May
CO 13,352 66,516 23,437 January-July
DE 676 4,428 2,200 July-September
FL 77,196 209,422 26,100 January-June
IA 7,515 69,301 -62,922 January-August
KS 1,553 13,159 -1,704 January-March
MD 4,260 12,338 5,544 January-July
NV 1,230 51,547 7,550 January-August
NH -1,285 1,188 269 June-August
NY 1,526 102,559 -164 November-March
NC 20,363 171,955 123,605 January-August
OR -13,349 122,518 - January-July
PA 289 98,137 15,907 April-August
WY 1,390 3,409 5,892 January-August


Remember though, just because one registers as a Democrat does not prevent them from voting for the Republican ticket.:wink: State polling and national polling are more accurate indicators. If McCain/Palin wins Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Colorado, and Nevada, all red states last time, their going to win the election.

Ahh, it takes a few days for the bounce to register.

Here you go.

Enjoy.
