Now THAT'S a stretch. I got shit for utilizing the correct definition of a television network.

I agree with Bus, you can't say with certainty that they are over $3 billion.

Question 11. S: On a scale of 1 to 10, equally weighing both physical beauty and character appeal, rank Sarah Palin. (0 = super ugly and super annoying, 5= annoying but equally fetching, 10 = red hot charachterista).

Have you audited California's budget? You can't say with certainty that any of the answers are correct. Since Ohio's own data are ambiguous, I think the answer should be given the benefit of the doubt.

chowderhead said 0 just to be smart. That was dumb. (no points)

Also with no points are the people who said 3,4 and 8.

This link:

http://www.povertyinstitute.org/matr...get%20Gaps.pdf

Shows Ohio with a $1.19 billion budget gap going into FY 2009, which when added to the $1.9 billion additional mid-year gap from Thor's original link, brings us just over $3 billion.

The biggest Palin fans appear to be Fist of Doom and PeMo, finding her charming in all ways, even to the point of thinking the sheep would feel the same way (10)
-2 points.

Erring on the side of charm, we find lucky number 7 with -5 points!

And the rest all recognize Sarah Palin as the Fair and Balanced woman that she is, placing her at an exact 5.
-14 points.

Dammit.... I hate Sarah Palin. She's fairly attractive and a 0 on the charming scale. I said 10 for the Sheep factor, though.

It's time for another edition of SheepMates!

Question 12. SM: SheepMates #2: Support the troops! The F-22 may be on the brink. Name two military weapons and/or vehicles that are most vital for US defense.

Having not listened to her very much, I was simply judging looks.

I actually thought this was one of the best questions.

I narrowed it down to 3 answers, but then I'm Navy-oriented.
