    Is El Tinklenberg perfect? No, but the MN-06 is the 2nd most Conservative District in the State (CPVI = R +5).  Nonetheless, he has a chance to beat one of the craziest Republicans in the House and thats important.

  • comment on a post It's a Tie! (Popular Vote v. Pledged Delegates) over 5 years ago

    No, its not a tie.  The nomination has been decided.

    Obama also won the popular vote by over 10,000 votes even without the caucuses that are always left out according to Chuck Todd of MSNBC last night.

    Its time to support the Democratic Party and its nominee.

  • "Clinton has dominated the second half of the primary season"

    Sorry, but 38 contests were held before your 'second half.'

    "a certain element of buyers remorse"

    Actually, you have to buy something to have buyers remorse.  There is no evidence that people who voted for Obama previously regret that choice.

    "I don't know if any of you have ever actually worked on a campaign before."

    I've worked on campaigns in 2002, 2004, 2006, and 2007.

    "Sorry if I break from your cult orthodoxy"

    Here you show yourself just to be an asshole.

    "annointing your cult leader as the Democratic nominee."

    Anointing is what Senator Clinton expected when she said it would be over by super Tuesday.  Senator Obama has earned the nomination by winning the most delegates.  

    "Hillary Clinton is dead in the water; yet, you people act as if you have the daylights scared out of you."

    Really?

    "Clearly, Clinton has won the second half of this primary and there is a clear case of buyers remorse among Democrats."

    Still wrong on both accounts

    "Your rules have allowed a complete and total lemon to obtain the nomination."

    Ah...the rules that say the person who wins the most delegates is the nominee.  How terribly unfair...  

    "For the life of me I cannot understand why rank-and-file Democrats are such p*ssies!?!?!?!?  Can anyone enlighten me?"

    Democrats are pussies because they didn't choose your preferred candidate?  Strong argument...

    Freaking out about the RBC is ridiculous.  Clinton had more supporters on the committee.  In the end, one of her top supporters, Don Fowler, voted for each of the solutions, solutions that the state parties of Michigan and Florida both accepted.

    The primaries were flawed, the committee realized that and did the best they could to fix the situation.

    In the end, the State parties got their proposed solutions (at half strength) and will have all of their delegates seated in Denver.  Maybe next time around, they'll abide by the rules from the beginning.

  • comment on a post How does Obama explain this ? over 5 years ago

    Good God People!

    There is an ongoing unnecessary war, the economy is terrible, people lack health care, our environment is in peril, and Anti-American sentiment is high all around the world.

    And THIS is what you obsess about?  Churches and pastors that Senator Obama knows and has relationships with?  Seriously?

  • comment on a post FIGHT ON, Hillary! over 5 years ago

    You seem unfamiliar with the differences between 'facts' and 'opinions'

  • on a comment on Al Franken Update over 5 years ago

    The problem in 2002 was that Senator Wellstone died just 11 days before the election.  With so little time, all the DFL could do was p, which is rare unless the person has run a state-wide campaign previously.  So even though there was some pretty good young talent, someone like Mondale was the only viable option.

  • comment on a post DNC and the Right to Vote over 5 years ago

    If Florida and Michigan had simply followed the rules like everyone else, this wouldn't be an issue.

    When you decide to play chicken with the DNC, you have to live with the consequences.

  • comment on a post Axelrod Was Making Pfleger Documentary over 5 years ago

    Who cares?

    Obama is not Phleger, he is not Wright, he is his own man.

    Guilt by association is ridiculous.

    We're electing someone to the highest office in the land and one of the most powerful positions in the world. How about we concentrate on policies and governing philosophies instead of personal associations.

  • You quoted the diarist saying that they choose to opt out, which would mean they don't want coverage.

  • The "young and healthy" aren't choosing not to be covered.  They're not covered because they don't have employment that offers those benefits and are too old to still be covered by parents. I know as someone who has many friends who fall under that very category.

    This whole idea that young healthy people don't want insurance is ridiculous.  No one wants to gamble with their health.  Mandating that people who  aren't covered get covered won't do anything to solve the problem.  If anything, it will force people into buying the crappiest health insurance plans available that only cover catastrophic illness, leaving the U.S. population just as unhealthy and lining the pockets of insurance companies.

  • on a comment on Likely blowout in November over 5 years ago

    MN is not a swing state.  Kerry won by 3.5% and Gore only won by less because Nader got over 5%.  The state hasn't voted for the GOP presidential candidate since '72 and thats not going to change any time soon.  The GOP had a good year in 2002 and its been all down hill since then.  The DFL has taken massive majorities in the state house and senate, taken all constitutional offices besides governor, picked up a U.S. Rep, and won a blowout for an open U.S. Senate seat.
