    Besides well...why should ponies always be 100% nice 24hrs a day.
    It's not so much that all of them have to be nice. It's the fact that there's a surprisingly large number of them who aren't. Given a community styled like theirs, everybody knows everybody, and should treat each other as such.

    And like Don said, they're pretty much superheroes at this point, but nobody seems to notice.

    So thats why he shit on half your country while running for president? I know i know he tried to change this statement but still.

    I was incredibly surprised it was as close as it was for awhile there.

    They were already superheroes after the first 2 eps (hell being the new elements of harmony and running around with celestia all the time) but its just one of the facts you have to accept when watching a show thats ALSO for little kids.
    Not everything makes sense. Esp since we face so many eps that are just disonnected from eachother.

    Yeah, I don't know anymore. I suppose if it's just 4 more years of the same thing (and he does nothing major during it), I am fine with whatever.

    It wasn't really. Not as close as the two Bush elections, not even nearly.

    I know, but it's fun to think about. Besides, they way Faust talks, everything had a point, a reason behind it. She has the bible somewhere.

    Speaking of, I watched her interview at EQLA. It sounds like she had a pretty bad falling out with Hasbro. And she isn't afraid to show it. Am I really late to the party here? What happened between the two?

    Now that the elections are over I can go back to what I was saying before.

    I do not understand politics.

    Its reason for existing. Its purpose. The fact that it's so important to the world. I will never understand these things.

    If it's another one of those 'this is reality, kid' then no wonder, because screw that.

    When I last looked a few hours ago it was like 51% Romney 49% Obama in popular vote and Romney ahead by 10 or so electoral. It obviously didn't end that way, but it was close for awhile. Until they figured out Obama won Florida and Ohayou.

    Not even polititions understand politics. Noone does. Its not wanted. Its just a big show to make you feel warm and safe while people pull strings in the background.

    Have no idea either. I just know that this shit will happen again in 2 years (not presidential elections, but still will happen), and it irritates me. Maybe a bit less than the presidential elections did, as I can easily escape the midterm ones.

    Popular vote doesn't matter. Obama won a majority of battleground states, with Florida still pending but projected to go to him. He didn't win by as much as in 08 but I think people people are saying that to ice it.

    Anyway, Obama will get the popular vote by a good margin, votes are still coming in and will come in for a few days from Cali and Washington.

    I'm running massively late. Then again, considering how terrible school's been lately, I'm not sure how much it bothers me...

    School time.

    Best answer: Both. Leona if you want a kill lane support, Irelia if you want a beast solo top. Just remember to time the shield after an auto attack so you get more hits in.
