In a new poll Wilders gets 22 seats, 8 less than in the same poll a month ago, so there's that. But then this same pollster was in a millenniumbugproof bunker on December 31 1999.

I'm not sure Turkey was doing a roaring trade in pornography, beer, and bacon before, so not sure how much of a threat that is.

Okay so according to the exit polls the ruling VVD (Liberal/Right and PvdA (Labour) will both lose, but while PvdA will be slaughtered, VVD will be by very far the largest party. So more rightwing crap most likely, although it will be pretty hard to build a coalition with this. My guess is GL (Green Left) will sell out in a couple of weeks/months and join a basically rightwing government with VVD, CDA (Christian Democrats) and D66 (Liberals but less racist and conservative as VVD).

VVD 31 (40)
PVV 19 (12)
CDA 19 (13)
D66 19 (12)
GroenLinks 16 (4)
SP 14 (15)
PvdA 9 (35)
ChristenUnie 6 (5)
Partij voor de Dieren 5 (2)
50Plus 4 (1)
SGP 3 (3)
Denk 3 (2)
Forum voor Democratie 2 (0)
VNL 0 (2)

I voted for the 'immigrant party' Denk (Think). Anyway, while Wilders (PVV) wins, his boasts about taking over were obviously ridiculous. Mostly because of the last-minute spat with Turkey, though he was already going down in the polls. Peaked too soon.




All in all the country moves to the right a bit. But the left is getting more leftist. Green Left, Immigrant Left, Animal Left (Partij voor de Dieren) all win. SP (Socialist Party) keep their core voters at least and the least left of them, PvdA loses big time for a basically right wing government they were part of. Wilders peaked early and was outWilderst by Prime Minister Rutte (VVD). Nobody expects Wilders' PVV to be part of any government. He rules the country by pulling the discourse to the right.

Remember the good old days when it was just GOP senators being busted for soliciting sex from men in airport bathrooms?

Moore police recommend 3 prostitution-related charges against Sen. Ralph Shortey

Well now it's underage prostitution. (NEAR A CHURCH! OH HORRORS!)

What is the world coming to when the left (or slightly less right) has been cosying up to big business for years while the right (whackjob far right) is finally alienating (sorry, testing the not infinite patience of) big investors?

My sources are telling me that Congoids - especially the males - are dumb as dog shit (mean IQ of 75 by the most generous estimates), which renders it virtually certain that Obama lacks the mental wherewithal to wiretap anyone, to order wiretapping or even to understand what "wiretap" means. :yup:

Tell me more about your support of the Administration spying on lawmakers to prevent them from stopping war.

The left are fascist war mongers. Where did the anti-war protesters go over the past eight years?

Obama is the only President in the history of the nation to have the country at war for his entire term.
