90% of ad networks vet their ads to run clean

Are you saying that if I send them an .swf file, they'll say, "no, send us the source, and we'll audit it and then compile it ourselves?"

Because if they don't do that, then they're not vetting jack shit.

(Putting aside the fact that Flash ads have mercifully fallen out of fashion in the last few years.)

Yeah, didn't the republicans win the house?

They held it, but lost eight seats. Not like the House has gotten much done under Boehner anyway.

And then two years later they got the senate too?

Yawn. Off year elections are almost useless for comparison to general election years.

There's a lot of morons out there.

Yup. Cuts both ways though.

Ted Cruz can still win.

As I've said before, show me an America that could elect a Canuck with a whiny voice and cultural tastes older than he is. I'll wait. Shit, they won't even elect Trump, and he's a hundred times the American that Ted is.

I will preface all this with an honest admission that this...scandal...could derail her chance at nomination. It could even, theoretically, leave a bad enough impression on a big enough chunk of the electorate to lose her the general that far. It might. Certainly a lot of man-hours and money will be spent trying, that's for sure. Though it is nice to see Republicans finally doing something about unemployment.

Remains to be disproven, though.

No, y'all are just still in the denial stage. Remember the polls in 2012? The ones that were ignored so badly that Karl Motherfucking Rove, of all people, was shocked?

Actually, there's that really great Christian parable about the dumbass who refuses aid 3 times then asks God why he wasn't there for him. Have a re-read, see if it sparks anything.


Oh dear. That means you're dumber than I thought. Nothing better than free money after all.
