Sixth-grade teacher under fire after asking students to compare George W Bush to Adolf Hitler in homework assignment
Damn AA, good memory, and very close to the same thing (weird history repeating and all that...).

This teacher had his students compare Bush to Adolf...but otherwise about the same.
According to a copy of the assignment released to the media, the teacher asked the students to write the similarities and differences between the two leaders in a Venn diagram, based on what they had read in two different texts. The class had been studying both the Holocaust and the Iraq War.
Then Skank Of America could start in...

Shadenfreude goes both ways. Just had an argument with an idiot who was mad because it was so unfair that Nevada was counted for Hillary Clinton when she only won 2 counties.

Pointing out that those two counties account for 5/6 of our population fell on deaf ears.

I have had to remind too many people that complaining about winning the popular vote is like complaining your quarterback--who lost The Big Game--had a better passing rating.

Does.

Not.

Matter.

I then remind them that when Bush beat Kerry in the popular vote, John Edwards tried to get Kerry to dispute the close results in Ohio to win the electoral vote. In other words, they would win despite still losing the popular vote. This, of course, was not hypocrisy.

I wonder what Hillary's Wins Above Replacement is.

This person wasn't whining about the popular vote as much as....I Don't know...the people who voted Trump in Nevada occupied more square miles than Hillary voters.

Because if you are going to argue that Trump should have won Nevada because he won 15 out of 17 counties and ignore that those 15 counties only account for 1/6 of our population, that's what you are arguing. That square miles per vote should be the metric

And his argument is doubly stupid because Trump won anyway. So it doesn't matter how it broke down by county. But he thought it was quite unfair. A prime example of liberals forcing their ideas on everyone else.

To use your own football example. It was like his team winning and then complaining that it was unfair that the other teams QB had a better passing rating, because he lost

If only declaring things made them so.

Nyar: Ah yeah. I am sure someone will show the map of individual counties which shows the US like 98.573% red with "tiny" blue areas which, as you suggest regarding square miles, MEANS 98.573% OF AMERICA VOTED TRUMP!!1!! This is a "counter-whine" to the "But . . . but . . . SHE WON POPULAR VOTEZ!" To keep the Relevant Sports Analogy, it would countering the Passer-Rating by saying Your QB passed for more yards. As Gram suggests, St. Peyton fans make such arguments whilst conveniently ignoring his horrific play-off record.

And his face.

His face.

Did you know he tea bagged a physical therapist? Make America Great Again, Nyarl!

I keep seeing things from people hoping Bernie runs in 2020.

I wonder if they realize that he will be pushing 80?

There were people who thought Ron Paul was a good idea.

I suppose that they will retort that he "will only be six years older than Trump!!"

Unless Trump royally fucks up and becomes so unpopular even the Republican Congress deserts him, an Insider Moonbat such as Bernie cannot win in the United States. Even then, I expect shit-tons of Democrats to run who will bury Bernie in the primaries. If he does not royally fuck up, running Bernie would be like running Ted Cruz or Jeb Bush against Obama in 2012. Going "full retard."

"You no like our ideologue! Well! WE'LL SHOW YOU!!! We'll nominate a GREATER ideologue! HA!HA!HA!"

To bring up Another Trenchant Sports Analogy: this is like losers of the Super Bowl/World Series thinking their team "will be back" the following year. It happens, but rarely successfully. I also do not see Bernie leading an opposition to Trump. Chuckless Shumer wants his chance. IF Trump at all works with the Dems on anything . . . Bernie will be as relevant as Perot his second time around or Ron Paul any time around--another sad mad has-been remembered by the deluded.

Given that the average American lifespan is 83, "only six years older than Trump" is a hell of a lot older.

Truthfully, I think if the Dems want any chance of dethroning The Pumpkin King in 2020 they are going to need to clean house and find new faces. No idea who might be good, but I think going with more of the same would be a terrible error on their part

Like many in the "Anyone but THEM" Crowd--Join Us! We have Anime!--I felt "anyone" who was vaguely sane could beat Clinton/Trump. The Dems ran no one--that is why Insane Uncle Bernie became briefly relevant. Otherwise, he would be a "Look at This Idiot" final segment on your news program.

The Republicans? I mean . . . really? The Fatter, More Intolerant Bush Brother? Ted Cruz?

So maybe Romny will enter in the last minute! :hyper: Mormon may be insane but it is not Clinton/Trump/Cruz/Bernie insane! Hell, he was phenomenally popular in Massachusetts! His running mate was Not Batshit Insane Enough for St. Sean!

On the Other Side [Boo. Hiss.--Ed.] you had people hoping Biden. Insane Uncle Joe "I Plagiarize Neil Kinnock!" Biden! Really?

But now that I think of it . . . Romny would be seen as another "insider-mOAr of the same" and could lose to Hillary "It's My Time!" Clinton. Same with Biden against Trump.

Next time? Who knows.

As I joked to a friend who has serious issues with Trump on a number of reasons, telling him to "wait and see" and "see how he is not interested in overturning gay marriage" sounds like, "hey, maybe it is the GOOD form of cancer!11!"
