Saturday Pix Pt. II

Now anyone who doesn't like Freepers is accusing them of racism, I guess.
As with 'Obama gay' before this, Freepers are beginning to believe their own schoolyard taunts.
If this fearmongering is all it takes for Paul Ryan to be in trouble, the GOP is really going to get ugly.
Hahaha, Yesssssss! Gonna have to post about this tomorrow.
Now that the moderates have moved on, we're left with gayness as existential threat, lol.

  1. To my knowledge, the key bit of 'evidence' for Obama being bi/gay is the claims made by Larry Sinclair, with everything else basically relying on subjective interpretation. Is there some similarly shaky foundation for all the talk about Michelle's biological nature, or is that just purely the momentum of spite?

    1. Pure spite because she could probably kick pretty much everyone's ass on free republic.

  2. The Donor Party is transitioning into the Donner Party: "We eat our own!"

    1. prediction markets are part of my political reading list. the outcomes of '08 and '12 may have been a surprise for freepers in particular but not for me.

    2. Pardon my ignorance, but what is the point of these things? Especially after an election - does everyone cash out?

      I know the international gambling that goes on during elections, but I assume this is different? Maybe it works like a deathpool?

    3. A share is worth 1c per % probability point. When there is an actual outcome, one option becomes 100% (=1$) and the other becomes 0% (=0$). Share values are redeemed accordingly.

      If you managed[1] to buy when a dem win was rated at 85% probable then you make 15c per share if that outcome occurs.

      [1] Trading pool is limited to 5000 participants and you can only buy a share of "win" if someone else is selling one (i.e. buying "lose").
