I agree that Putin wants to relive the "glory" of the Soviet Union, unfortunately history is exposing that the glory was relatively contrived and manufactured through fear and propoganda. (By both East and West) I also think you underestimate NATO's capability and the ability of the US to redeploy a...

I wish I had a better way to answer why news won't report certain things, that would best be left up to Galvatron above. I wish I had a sexier answer than this, but its about ratings and until American media consumers turn the product off, that's the product they (the media machine and the corporat...

The threat is primarily to Poland with a more broad "we dare you to try something" approach to the rest of Europe. Russia's actions have made new here with CNN and PBS/NPR and Obama has already commented on the need to reign Russia back in and engage them. I honestly believe though that the US would...

YES! Excellent! :)

Oh and for the record...Bush had like 50.something percent of the popular vote...do we really want to herald that as crossing the majority threshold?

Green Lantern Start with "Rebirth" and stay with it and GL Corps. They're probably one of the best comics series being put out right now. This whole build up to Blackest Night is epic... Agreed...even though it makes me feel dirty all over to agree with Hound. The new Buffy series is quite good and...

The end of the Bush debacle is upon us...the words lame duck never sounded so sweet. I'd say it is safe to call an electoral landslide, not sure if it will be a popular one or not, but it could very well be. When was the last time a presidential nominee got over the 50% mark?

Agreed...good trends in North Carolina and Florida right now, not so good trends in Virginia and Indiana for Obama. Those are all early still. ABC.com is calling PA and NH already? That seems a bit premature to me...especially after they were one of the ones calling Florida for Gore with like 2 perc...

Because this is the first time I have been in the thread to moderate and you two heckling each other was most recent and likely to expand, so zip it.

Any state can split their vote. The actual electoral college is not legally bound to vote based on popular vote. Any high schooler knows that. That's the whole point of the electoral college. If the votes had to follow the poplular vote of the state, that kills the entire purpose of having an elect...

2000 McCain? A great candidate that should have bested G.W. Bush for the GOP nomination. 2008 McCain? A crazy old man who sold out to the GOP machine and spent his campaign directly contradicting 95% of his Senate voting record. He sold out, he tried to play the game, and he's going to lose.

Is it wrong that I want to see this movies based upon three factors? 1: I find Elizabeth Banks to be devilishly cute. 2: I'm a Kevin Smith mark? 3: Certain networks will only call it Zack and Miri...because the phrase "make a porno" is just too controversial and the minds of children all across the ...
