absurd. how do you suppose he secured literally, a few hundred million dollars in appropriations on 5 bills? He had more bills pass with his name on them in the 70s....than you've got functioning brain cells evidently. Surface Mine Reclamation Act. New River and Gauley River named Federal waterways, adopted into the National Park Service. See, there's 2 that he did in the 70s, which proves my point on the brain cells. News Flash looser: Rahall won. Nobody cares how many full of crap lies you can make up anymore.  (Nov 8, 2010 | post #1344)

Steak for Big 1

Good points all, but she's young enough to do 2 terms as Gov then go for Senate afterwards. And if she chooses Gov first, you can rest assured it is because she did private polling and focus groups, and likes her odds or she wont run, simple as that. And the one little known factor, and trust me, i'm in a position to know......is this unholy alliance between her and Joe. Goes way back. I just dont see her challenging Joe Manchin. Especially if he manages to land some key committee assignments, Joe is crafty enough to work it politically so that he's able to bring home some sort of bone in his short 2 year Sen term. He'll have the wind in his sails. If he doesn't screw it up some other way (such as in his personal life..) Joe will be very hard to beat in 2012. Jay's up in 2014..and she'd have no qualms going after him like a pit bull. But a reasonable long term plan for her would be to grab the Gov slot in 12, wait it out for a run at Jay Rockefeller second time around. Math on that works out I think, doesn't it? Especially since punting on the last couple of years of a Gubanatorial term seems to be acceptable these days...;)  (Nov 6, 2010 | post #12)

dang is it too late to get in on this deal? Just let me know what night you go, i'll just call my order into the Char and pick it up....you'll never know i'm there!...;0 I suspect we will hear by late summer, early fall next year at the latest, whether Shelly will be going after the Byrd/Manchin seat or Governor's race. She probably hasn't made up her mind yet, will do some private polling etc, but she'll need to raise 5M minimum for either effort so she'll have to form a committe by then for either race. I'm sure she'll be thinking hard about it because it's a zero sum game for her. If she looses either one, it's over. Emotionally she probably wants to try and rehabilitate her Daddy's disgraced name, and the outside shadow groups that are the new forever players probably aren't as drawn to a Gubanatorial race as Senate. And I'm sure she figures she's already overcome the taint of her Dad's tenure. And finally, she and Joe Manchin are actually very close, some old family ties and strange bedfellows between them, suspect she'd have a harder time running a hard core race against Joe, not so any of the half dozen dems lined up for the Gov race. My bet would be she sets her sights on that old familiar gold dome, especially if the legislature moves up the election day. She'll make a formidible candidate either way. I don't like her politics even a little bit, but something tells me she'd do less damage as Gov than as a Senator, considering she invented the rubber stamp during the Bush administration. Bon Apitite fellas! It's been real...:)  (Nov 5, 2010 | post #9)

Congratulations to Manchin and Rahall

But Rahall has never won in his home county"...may be in your fantasies, but if you have any interest in fact based reality, should know that is completely false. I would easily bet you any amount of money that Rahall has carried Raliegh WAY more times than he's ever lost it. Off the top of my head I know he carried Raliegh nicely in 08. He lost it in 2006 by a only a couple hundred votes, to Snuffer who literally put 100% of his $$ effort into that one county, never even showed up at any of the other 16 counties. And this year's results deserve a little context as well: Rahall lost Raliegh by 2%...TWO points! The result in Mingo County, i.e. Spike's hometown of Williamson...a thumping: Rahall 60% Spike 40%. You dont have to like the results, but that doesnt mean you get to lie about them.  (Nov 4, 2010 | post #20)

You people are going to get EXACTLY what you voted for

What a gracious moment your having pig, very refreshing. Unlike Spike who evidently was whisked off on Don's plane to an undisclosed location before the polls closed. His last known whereabouts were in Fairmont....? (hello, 3rd district is down here spike!) on monday, at a rally with 3rd stringer rudy guilliani. Then he literally just vanished, didn't show at any gop or his HQ tues night, no comments to any press, even his hometown paper in williamson said they had a pre arranged call set with him, just nobody home...no concession call to rahall. I actually felt bad for the people who worked and volunteered on his campaign. can you imagine spending your weekends working for a candidate who doesn't even show up to say thank you on election night? Unreal. He stayed true to his nature right to the very end, nothing but a mingo county punk. This whole thing was just a game to him, got to run around with the big boys for a couple of monthss and pretend he was one of them. Then scurries off like a roach when the lights came on. Good ridence to bad rubbish....  (Nov 4, 2010 | post #67)

The Last 'Fair' Election?

Come on pig, i know you must be getting pretty depressed about now. But buck up buddy, YOU are better than that...coming to the defense of the looney tunes. Anyone who feels compelled to issue this xenophenic doomsday prediction about the end of democracy as we know it if a democrat is elected....sorry darlin, that's a wingnut. And it's just a waste of time to talk to anyone who only wants to throw this word amnesty around, with no discussion or thought as to what that actually means from a legislative or legal perspective.....ya wn....totally bores me. So I'm left to entertain myself by by tossing peanuts to the zoo animals and watch them squeal and squak and fly around their cages. Why you gotta be a buzz kill on a beautiful friday afternoon?!!...;)  (Oct 29, 2010 | post #11)

Spike is a bachelor, a life long condition I believe, which confirms my theory that WV women know a looser when they see one. Karen Cross, aka political director of the right to life lobbying organization, on the other hand....is very married with 3 kids. If you've ever wondered what that outfit does with the contributions you give them, now you know....  (Oct 27, 2010 | post #802)

Telling the whole truth....what a concept. You would think that concept would have been explained on the first day a Judge gets sworn in. Maybe Spike was on vacation that day. Love your posts Bush, even if you did choose a rather unfortunate moniker...;)  (Oct 27, 2010 | post #801)

U.S. House Candidate Conversations - Elliott - Spike' May...

I LMAO every time I read Spike saying he "left" the democrat party because their "values" changed......HAHAH AHAHAH!!! If that isn't an overdose of irony right there I dont know what is. OK News Flash Spike: You didn't 'leave' the democratic party....THEY KICKED YOUR ASS OUT!! But yes, as I recall the reason did have a little something to do with a differential in "values" .....  (Oct 26, 2010 | post #13)
