Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, and Forum Discussion

the house is always in a 2 year election cycle. senators are only up every 6 years, so 1/3 of the senate is "campaigning" at any given time... and honestly it's prob only the year of.

so it's not like a parliamentary system where the PM being term limited makes his final term the lame duck term. lame duck period is a congressional thing that happens every two years unless by some miracle every incumbent got voted back in. if it were referring to president, they would say lame duck president

Karak truly trailblazing here. Going from Georgetown law student to Washington insider without the 16 years of chugging juice from Nancy Pelosi's thorn-laden vagina.

Technically this is innaccurate. In the following sentences I will demonstrate why this is the case. In order to understand the following I will first direct you to exhibit A. Exhibit A is the wikipedia article (henceforth "wiki") about capitalization. You must read and understand the nuances of capitalization in order to understand why "Karak" spelled backwards is not "karak." The wiki section of the capitalization article on nouns provides a suitable explanation of such. Once you have processed this information it should be clear that "Karak" spelled backwards is "karaK" rather than "karak."
