I'm gay and I find you are far more obsessed with homosexuality than I ever could be. Guys like you are typically pretty fun to shack up once in a while, with all that frustration and over the top straight acting, but don't get too cozy thinking you're friends & family aren't tuned into how bizarre your gay-fixated worldview actually is.
No diminishment intended. The winner was picked by superdelegates and the pledged delegate apportionment was widely affected by an arbitrary Rules meeting, which had full discretion to do whatever it wanted to do.
Both candidates received more votes than any candidates in history, and both did it as the first deviations from the white male stranglehold on the job. Neither should be diminished. The fact that they effectively tied and had coalitions that ultimately united to make history on Nov. 4th is all we need to think about now.
I think the other contributor doesn't know his facts or demographics well. He's impervious to reason.
It says a lot that he's still figuratively urinating on us, the 18,000,000 supporters of Hillary Clinton who got over our post-primary issues and helped put Barack Obama well over the top. I don't know what kind of alternate reality one is living in when instead of thanking us for recognizing the greater common goal of having a Democrat in office, one is bringing up distortions from a primary that everyone else has gotten over.
Will won't be satisfied until he hears that Hillary received "zero" votes in the primary, "zero" delegates in the primary, and was on track to receive "zero" votes in the general election for a reverse electoral rout of "zero" to 538.
There was no clear winner in the primaries. But that didn't stop strongly pro-Clinton demographics like women and Latinos from overwhelmingly choosing Obama. Any Obama supporter who would pick John McCain over Hillary Clinton would be experiencing psychosis.
Honestly, with a sample size that small both the confidence interval and margin of error must be extremely suspect. Really flimsy evidence to ignite a culture war between Black Americans and GLBT Americans. I am saddened and disgusted that on a night when I was celebrating such a major and emotional victory for our AA brothers & sisters, that many prominent media folks attempted to distort information and play on stereotypes to vilify AA's as gaybashers.
The more virulent gay-haters I know are all white... and they're all secretly gay. Hence their obsession with homosexuality.
