• comment on a post It is OVER for Hillary Clinton (with video) over 6 years ago

    Perhaps this six-week gap between TX and PA is provin to be just what the doctor ordered for this primary season.  It has given a long period of time to focus on nothing but the two remaining candidates.  No primary results during that time means nothing to fuel "momentum" except the campaigns themselves.

    During this time the Cintons threw the Wright dustup and BitterGate at Sen Obama.  Not only has he waeathered these storms, or teapot tempests if preferred, he has increased his support in the aftermath of each.

    The Wright blowup got some traction. Sen Obama never took a massive popularity hit, but the flap did generate press for a couple solid weeks. But eventually it became clear the American public were not going to abandon a fine candidate over some heated comments on the part of his pastor.

    Then came BitterGate.  It was juped on gleefully by both the Clintons and by McCain.  But this one pretty much hit a stone wall.  Sure, the hyperpartisans and paid shills put up a fuss.  But most of America said, "Damn straight!" The PA people supposedly offended responded to their would-be and self-declared champion with a public booing.

    The way this latest Clintonian mudpie blew back so quickly gives one the feeling this race has ended.  The logjam has broken.  All the pretend reasons that once made Sen Clinton the inevitable candidate have melted away under close inspection.  She has been reduced to the kitchen sink, but now the sink has become a boomerang.  

    The American voting public has made up its mind.  Sen Obama has met every challenge the Democratic Primary season has to offer. All that is left is the question of "when?"  Will Sen Clinton concede after PA. after IN/NC, or after Puerto Rico?

    Any of the above will suffice.

  • Pennsylvania, supposedly a big win for Sen Clinton, is narrowing to a few percentage points.  A tine or oven an Obama win is possible.

    WrightGate was suuposed to destroy the Obama camapign.  When it was over, he had gained support.

    BitterGate was supposed to destroy the Obama campaign.  He began gaining in support the same day the Clintons threw that kitchen sink at him.

    Besides state polls, the national polls have shown Sen Clinton falling far behind.  She is now in that dangerous sub-40% territory.  Below 35 is fatal in a two-persn race.

    Then this large very comprehensive poll comes out, which confirms every trend mentioned above.

    Added to polling information is fundraising. Sen Obama enjoys a massive adavantage that has only gotten larger the longer this race has run.

    So you are entirely welcome to your opinions.  You just do not have any fatual basis available to cite in support.

    It is over, but for the counting.

  • It is pretty amazing how many people seem to miss a very basic point.  The advertizement claims to represent ordinary Pennsylvania residents. One of the people in the ad is a Clinton campaign worker who does not even live in Pennsylvania.

    In normal social circles this is called "lying".

    Still I see your angle on the humerous aspect.  I guess in this story there's something appealing, something appalling, something for EVERYONE.

  • Let's see what we have for "logic".  

    Previous winners of the Democratic primaries hace lost in the general election.  Therefor this year's winner of the primaries will lose in the genreal election.  We must therefore declare the loser to be the winner.

    The most electable candidate loses in the general election. We must nominate the loser of this year's primaries because it she is more electable.

    And if that "logic" is not enough for you, there's always.

    America won't ever elect no damn n****r.

    Hey!  Since when is it ever a Democratic Party principle to stand up for social justice?  We got us a perfectly good white cnadidate right over heah.

    FABULOUS comment you made, latinfighter.

  • I am dompletely flummoxed. What is wrong with addressing Dick Cheney by his given name?

  • comment on a post Hi, I'm Barack Obama and I'm a Fraud Part Two over 6 years ago

    The infamous "ties" meme.  I see you've dusted that one off again. Dick.

    Tell me, does Sen Obama have "ties" to Muhammad Atta too, Dick?

    Or maybe like Saddam Hussein, he has "ties" to al-Queda, right Dick?

    Just like Karl Malden has "ties" to Kevin Bacon, eh, Dick?

    We'd be damn foolish not to take your BS for advice Dick.

    I mean, just look what happened last time we listened to this Dick.

  • Yeah, that's a pretty good rule of thumb you have there.

  • And I have never heard of this "Chicago's Number One media analyst".

    Who is giving his press conference from NEW YORK.

    Time to start calling these Rezko-BS diaries for what they are:  the work of GOP agent provocateurs.  

    However from the past 1-2 weeks, it is clear the REAL Democrats (with a capital-D) are returning to MyDD.  The BS artists are getting drowned out.

  • comment on a post Dueling Pennsylvania Ads over 6 years ago

    Sen CLinton has been reduced to the kitchen sink for what?  Over a month now?  The public didn't buy into the Rev Wright flap.  Well, the public sure as hell is not going to abandon Sen Obama because he said the public is mad as hell at its incumbant politicians.

    I do not see what is smart about the Clinton ad. It shows no imgination.  It's just screeching to the (ever-shrinking) choir.

  • "The old saying that when the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail applies here."

    In this case, I think a slight revision workes better.  "When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like your thumb."

    I knew this campaign was run by incompetents way back at KinderGate.  Remember the explanation for that one?  "Ohh, we were just joking, ha ha."

    I had never before heard a Presidential camapign describe their tactics as "a joke".  Most politicians try to avoid uttering statements containing the following words: 'our campaign', 'is', 'a joke'.

    I had never before heard a Presidential campaign flatly state their official press releases were apt to contain known untruths. That these known untruths were deliberately inserted strictly for purposes of amusement.

    Who whould have thought the days of KinderGate would represent the Clinton Campaign's high-water mark?

    Hey, there's that thumb again.  WHAM!

    ...spells b-l-o-w-b-a-c-k.

    It is all over but the counting.

  • Put them niggers in their place, you say?

    Self-coupluate, fecal vent, self-copulate.

  • comment on a post The Importance of the Gaffe over 6 years ago

    Nada.

    Tehre is no there there. Everywhere outside the internet echo chambers people are in agreement with SEn Obama's point.  Two weeks ago no one will give a rolling doughnut for this kerfluffle.

    Just as no one cares about Rev Wright anymore.

    Just as no one cares (or ever did) about ReaganhadideasGate.

    The race is over.  The Democratic Party elders are letting teh primaries run their cuorse.  Why not?  It is so close to the end of the string, why not let it play out?  It has been a great primary for building voter excitement.  That is all good.

    But face the reality: The party elders will not let the Clintons destroy the Party via a fod fight at the convention.  One of two things will happen a day or three after the last contest in Puerto Rico:

    1)  The Clintons will do the Right Thing and concede the race.

    2) The superdelegates will step in overwhelmingly with public support for Sen Obama.

    The actual competetive phase IS over.  And the loser WILL pulbicly concede long before Denver.  One way or the other.
