Was watching last night, I thought American Dad was a ###### take? The Romney HQ was 99.9% white and Romney himself is Stan Smith....

Some Republicans were recognising that after the result had been announced - that their support base had become, almost exclusively, white at the same time as the wider American electorate was becoming more diverse. Blacks and Hispanics in particular were voting in greater numbers, and were coming out, largely, for the Democrats. The conclusion was that they had to widen their appeal.

It's been pointed out that after last night's vote in Washington State that in that locale you can now legally spot pot whilst watching a legal gay wedding.

Is it a good thing that someone that believes in the second coming of Christ and that, being one of the righteous, they will live in paradise could potentially have his finger on the big red button? (Assuming it is a big red button, I would be disappointed if it wasn't big and red).

Much more scary is the belief that the second coming will only happen once Israel occupies it traditional biblical area.

(There are a number of extreme rabbis that will go to any lengths to PREVENT this happening)

Many Americans want the biblical prophesy to come true. Not sure where the Mormons stand on this as that can be proved to be all made up.

It's in the five minute video I posted earlier I think.

Hyphenated Americans (Irish-Americans, Mexican-Americans etc) tend to vote Democrat. Proper Americans vote Republican. :D

WHat about WASP-Americans? :)

And thinking about proper Americans, what way do native Americans tend to vote?

Civil ceremonies are still called weddings aren't they? Hope so as we're having a civil ceremony next year.

They always were, change is inevitable but I think commentators tend to overlook the fact that Obama comes from a WASP background on his mother's side.

Good question. I don't know. I don't think that (sadly) they are a significant percentage of any state and hence don't tend to appear in racial break-downs.

Given that very many are dirt poor (except those whose tribe decided to build a casino who are fantastically rich) I would imagine Democrat.

Very rough and ready google search shows they vote overwhelmingly Democrat percentage-wise but it doesn't look like huge numbers vote.

On the subject of native Americans, and gay marriage, I noticed that a couple of tribal jurisdictions had passed measures to allow gay marriages to go ahead in their areas.

Now, I'm bringing the tone of the thread down a bit, and it's a little bit naughty, but I can't help recalling that spoof Lone Ranger song by Quantum Jump:-

Tonto know that Kimosabi

Never ever have a woman

Tonto sometime stop and wonder

What the trip with the great white brother

Maybe masked man he a ###### <bad name for gay man>

Try it on with surly Tonto

Let me say to mister lawman

Tonto doesn't mind

:D

There's a song I haven't heard in ages! I've got it somewhere on the hard drive at home.

It seems Melanie Phillips is non too happy with the result. Obviously a sure sign that America did the right thing. :rolleyes:

I wouldn't like to live in her world. Or Donald Trump's. Ridiculously OTT reactions like this make me all the more happy that Obama won.

Just as a matter of interest, there were other candidates besides Obama & Romney, any idea who they were, & how much (%) of the vote did they get?
