    Takes most of upstate vote to finish 45-35 over former Senator

    It’s 47-35 (rounded to the closest integer)

    46.7-35.0 to be exact, as per the latest tally (since at least 5 hrs before this blog post has been posted.)

    I see Wombat rounded 46.7 and 35.0 to the closest multiple of 5.

    Had Romney won say 42.6  to  35.0 over Santorum, would Wombat posted that as a 45-35 win margin? Or, better still, had Romney won 42.6 to 37.4 (5.2 margin win) over Santorum, would that be a 45-35 (10 point margin) win ?

    Just wondering.  It’s just a variation of Conservative cognitive bias at work I suppose.

     Gary leaned back in his plush, leather office chair. His monitor was filled with open web pages, all pertaining to the Fluke/Limbaugh controversy and the contemporary leftist feminist movements.

    He thought; “Is it really appropriate to refer to these courageous women as ‘sluts’? Of course, some of them refer to themselves as such; in that case, it seems fine to follow on with that same nomenclature.

    Even so, he thought; maybe there is a better ‘label’ to apply to them. He mused on these:

    – slithering slits

    – vaginal voluptuaries

    – no-label labiaistas

    – clitoral culturalists

    – mammary mams

    – anti-totalitarian tit-tippers

    – free fuckers for freedom

    – maternal mattress-backs 

    No, scratch most of those. Such lurid language would probably serve mainly to inflame hordes of horny men, who have nothing better to do than lay about having sexual fantasies pertaining not just to sex, but sex with multiple, horny women whose sole purpose in life is to pump every viable spermatozoa from every man able to breath.

    Its whats for dinner!

  • Wombat_socho

     No, it was a typo. You’re over-thinking this.

    Wombat…I am pretty sure Anamika has never over thought anything.  

  • Wombat_socho

     You haven’t seen the “before” version of some of her longer comments. :facepalm:

  • http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/ Evi L. Bloggerlady

    I can only imagine.  I am kidding off course and I know what you mean about “over thinking.”  What is obvious from reading her rambligns over the years is Anamika has never engaged in any “critical thinking.”
