FWIW, one of my pet peeves is someone calling a college team "young".   Of course they're young.  They're in college.    48 is my age.
Yeah, they're 20 year olds. Relative to other college students, they aren't young.  Relative to congressman, 40's is young.

Are you denying that he is the guy you voted for?
"I voted for a young minority incumbent. " 
"That guy isn't young."

therefore...

Eh, I think Scott's the guy. No one else fits. Unless young minority GOP incumbent never existed in the first place.

Here is a map of the senate elections in 2012.


There are 6 states in the eastern time zone without a senate election:

New Hampshire
North Carolina
South Carolina
Georgia
Kentucky
Alabama

Of those 6 states, there was ONE male minority GOP incumbent running for congress. Tim Scott, district 1, South Carolina.

Yeah, I looked it up.  Just like you did. 

Difference being, I didn't know the state ahead of time.
Are you sure I did?

Let's put this another way.   

You said "I consider Republican candidates."
I said "The hell you do."
You began hammering me about voting Dem.
I said "Yeah, I voted against all incumbents but one in 2012" and threw out some details "young minority" as the reason why.
You went off on another tangent about Dems.
I repeated myself because you didn't seem to understand what I said.
You did some research and said "That's the guy!!"
I'm saying "I'm 50.  48 is not young."


And here we are.

MIKETITTY IS EITHER IN IDAHO OR FLORIDA
South Carolina.
Was I right, mike?
Everybody knows I'm from Idaho.
I said South Carolina two days ago. You knew the state I was guessing.

Do you think I know the House Reps from SC?

Isn't Scott a senator now?
10/23/2013 1:21 PM
Well, since you voted for him...

He is a Senator. But he ran for Congress, won, and then was named to the Senate this year as a replacement for Demint.

Are you saying that Scott isn't the "minority GOP incumbent" you voted for?

Yes or no.

How's Strom Thurmond doing?

We're allowed to vote.   If people would vote out the incumbents, a message can be sent.    But it won't happen because 80%, I imagine, are pressing one side of the poll regardless of the name attached to it.
When was the last time you voted for a Democrat for president or congress?
2012.   I voted for one incumbent.    He was a minority, Republican and young. 
He was a Republican. When was the last time you voted for a Democrat?
2012.   Read the goddam post.   I voted for ONE incumbent.    ****.
I don't know the party makeup of the congressional incumbents where you live.

Honestly, I'm surprised that you voted for a Democrat for Congress. Which Democrat was it?
2012.   I voted for one incumbent.    He was a minority, Republican and young.

Yeah, I checked this AM.   Seems my theory was better than my practice.    There were no Senate seats up for grabs and the HoR was the young minority Republican.   But I voted for a shitload of Dems on the state/local level.
I think it's much easier to vote for the other at the state and local levels. I do it all the time. But I haven't voted for a Republican at the federal level in 13 years.
I suppose my conviction will be tested in the future.

Scott is the only one that fits.
10/23/2013 1:37 PM
Even within the context of BL's extremely low standards for participating in incredibly dumb arguments, he is looking exceptionally pathetic in his need to "win" this one.

It's obvious Mike is uncomfortable giving you an idea of where he lives.  You're falling into your "ask the same question over and over" routine, despite it being obvious you aren't getting an answer.
