This diary is for the Hillary supporters

Once again the Obama campaign and the MSM is loudly trumpeting the inevitability of his win. But, February is over and now we go back to our home field. They picked up delegates in the usual caucus states as was expected and soon they will be braying in their loud donkey voices for Hillary to step down and the anointment of the chosen one to begin. This drum-beat will only grow louder and louder in the coming days even as they ignore her winning performance in the debate. But, I have one thing to say to the Clintonistas:

Hold Fast.

I don't know if many of you saw 'Master and Commander' the movie with Russell Crowe. In it he played a sea captain named Jack Aubry who was renowned for his fighting spirit. At the start of the film he was surprised and almost defeated by a newer, faster, much larger ship manned by a talented, hungry young captain. After narrowly escaping his crew set about rebuilding and recuperating from their losses. When trying to figure out what to do many of his crew said that the other ship was far too powerful for them to defeat and that they should retreat to England. But the captain wouldn't hear of it. He wasn't a legend because he would run away but for never losing the final battles. They would fight. Using every opportunity and all of his experience he eventually was able to outsmart his foe and take the spoils in the end.

Hold fast fellow members of the Flying Monkey Squadron and ignore the naysayers. Remember why we support Hillary. She is the most experienced, battle-toughened, smartest captain on the sea. Not to mention we are the most experienced crew of sea dogs with years of war under our belts.

-We raised $2.2 million dollars to blunt his attack in Ohio
_We still hold the high ground in the most important electoral rich states. (Remember Obama's ship burning after we clocked him in Cal and NJ?)
-We're also very solid in the states that really count, the blue primary states.
-We still have plenty of ammo left in our stores and a very good first mate in Bill Clinton.
-Obama doesn't have any more caucuses left to disenfranchise the older voters that form the core of Hillary's support.
-We are gearing up our 527's right now to do combat against the biased MSM.

So let them try to overwhelm us. Have faith in your trust of our captain's wisdom and fighting spirit. We will follow her to the ends of the earth and to victory.

We will hold fast.

So, is Pennsylvania the new firewall?

Obama folks...PLEASE stay out of this thread.  As a fellow Obama supporter (but respects HRC)...nothing can be gained by posting here, no matter how well-intentioned.

Re: This diary is for the Hillary supporters

Well, the diarist did make fun of our "donkey voices." Still, I take your point.

Icebergs?

What icebergs?

And stop bothering me with petty, inconsequential things like that 30-degree list and the failure of the pumps.

Full steam ahead!

Arrgh matey!

I like your spirit. And I am so disgusted with the media treatment of her that I have pretty much decided to write her in even if she isn't the nominee.

Re: Arrgh matey!
You'll seriously endanger the Dem's chance to win if your candidate doesn't win?

I believe that's called "cutting off your nose to spite your face."

Re: Arrgh matey!

In a deep red state, my vote probably won't count for much anyway. But at this point, Obama is going to have to earn my vote. It's not a given.

Re: This diary is for the Hillary supporters

While there are a very small amount of self-described Hillary supporters who claim they'd vote for McCain, that's hardly a reason to damn the whole bunch.

Comments like yours might only serve to disenfranchise even more of them. We need to do everything we can to be unified against the GOP.
