derspiess is just a troll guys. No need to feed it.

If he's just a troll, he has been remarkably consistent for over 15 years about the policy positions he supports.

If the definition of a troll is simply a person who mocks or satirizes others' positions, pretty much all of us are trolls.

I thought a troll was someone who claims on-line to have beliefs (be they social, political, moral, or otherwise) that they don't actually hold simply to get a reaction from people who are offended by those beliefs.

They can actually hold those beliefs, but express them for the reaction.

Nah. If you don't want a reaction to your beliefs why express them at all?

Back in the day I'd agree with the not actually holding the. Beliefs part. These days though the word has taken on a different meaning

Not just any reaction. One that gives you the lulz.

Tory MPs have just finished voting in the 2nd round ballot.

Result expected within the hour, one or more candidates will be eliminated.

non-insane as not directly campaigning with promises of utterly wrecking the country. But in normal times he'd be considered a harmless head-in-the-clouds idiot and never let close to power.

Still would be my choice from this lot, though.

In an insane world, it is the non-insane that are the truly insane.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

I'm embarrassed. I've been making the mistake of associating with you. It won't happen again. :)

From all I've seen, Rory is my favorite...but as a big proponent of May's deal (for lack of a better option), I cannot see he has a chance.  I have little doubt he is intelligent enough to see that too, and I get the impression he is not really running for this round, but more towards getting his name out for the future.

Only one knocked out (Raab).

BJ up a little.  Hunt still in 2nd, others move up a little bit.  Rory had probably the biggest move, relatively, doubling his count.
