Hillary Clinton Answers The Call

Update: video on NAFTA-gate.


———————————————————————————–
[Today is election day in Ohio, Texas, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Let’s keep making phone calls to those states for Hillary. Let’s keep donating.]

Yesterday, Hillary Clinton, asked Big Media to pretend that the allegations against Obama were allegations against herself “substitute my name for Senator Obama’s name” – Big Media pounced.

For the first time, yesterday, questions about Barack Obama made it through the Big Media filter and onto news broadcasts. Proof of the Big Media protection of Obama came during the Rezko trial. Even in Chicago, most of the prospective jurors did NOT know who longtime Obama friend/benefactor/indicted slumlord Antoin “Tony” Rezko is.

Obama tried at a press conference to weasel his way, again, from questions we have raised for at least 10 months as new details continously emerged. Lynn Sweet and Carol Marin of Chicago heartily objected to the Obama drama filled with obfuscations, deflections and outright lies.

News broadcasts yesterday and news reports yesterday finally discussed the real Obama: one reporter yelled that he was dodging questions just minutes after claiming he wasn’t.

 

* * *

We have noted time and again how Obama dumped his African-American constitutents and devoted himself to the exclusive representation of Antoin “Tony” Rezko. When the phone rings, Obama only answers if the call is from Rezko.

Hillary Clinton has answered her countries call, time and again, for 35 years. The Houston Chronicle sees her works:

In the recent Democratic presidential debate in Austin, the candidates were asked to describe a personal crisis that tested their characters.

Sen. Barack Obama recited his biography, apparently hoping we would, justifiably, be inspired. Sen. Hillary Clinton said her well-known personal trials were nothing compared to those of the injured soldiers she so eloquently evoked and that they and thousands of other Americans had inspired her to devote her life to public service and to enter this race. This is the profound difference between these candidates — and between good leaders and great ones like Hillary Clinton.

Seven years of the Bush administration have left us so hungry for change that we will accept almost any kind offered. SenatorObama says he is the agent of that change and proclaims that we are the change we seek, the change we’ve been waiting for.

Yet change alone is not enough. George Bush changed peace into war, surpluses into deficits and the respect this country enjoyed around the world into contempt. That was not what we had waited for.

Yet Obama will also keep us waiting. His thin legislative record — so thin even his Texas spokesperson was at a loss to name a single Senate accomplishment — reveals his avoidance of controversy and hard choices, including more than a hundred votes of “present” in the Illinois Legislature when others took a stand.

The U.S. Senate subcommittee he chairs on NATO, a key ally, has never met or acted. He touts ethics reform that requires only that congressmen stand while lobbyists buy their three-martini lunches and offers a health care plan that doesn’t cover everybody. Even his speech against the war in Iraq was not followed by action in the Senate. Promising change alone, he delivers only change lite, change borne of the easy consensus that comes from political expedience and not asking for too much.

Campaigning for change is one thing; delivering even a little is another. As Fred Siegel, a professor of history at the Cooper Union for Science and Art, observes,”Patrick’s governorship is the closest thing we have to a preview of the ‘politics of hope’ and that governorship has been a failure to date.

As [columnist] Joan Vennochi observes in the Boston Globe, Patrick’s record in office ‘shows that it can be hard to get beyond being the face of change, to actually changing politics.’ … Patrick hasn’t delivered reform, much less the transformation that both he and Obama promise.” Gov. Patrick’s failures no doubt explain why Massachusetts Democrats, when offered more of the same, voted overwhelmingly for Clinton.Hillary Clinton asks more of us. She urges us to look not to her or ourselves for affirmation but to find true and lasting inspiration by looking outward together to see the invisible Americans she sees, those whose desperate needs and quiet dignity compel her and us to act. She calls upon us to work together to improve their lives and, in the process, our own because she knows that real, positive change is the only kind worth fighting for.

And fight we must. Words may inspire but only blood, sweat and yes, even occasional tears make positive change happen. No change worth having has ever come without them. Thomas Jefferson’s words “all men are created equal” were but a cruel hope for many until Americans fought to make them real.

While it is tempting to think we can achieve change but avoid conflict if only we believe enough, we know, deep down, that real change requires more than hope. It always has. César Chávez devoted his life to that fight. That is why the union he and Dolores Huerta pioneered endorsed Clinton. Bobby Kennedy gave his life in that fight and his children have endorsed her, too. They showed us that fighting together for meaningful change is noble, not passe.

Like them, Hillary Clinton has fought for positive change all her life. Millions of children have health care because of her tireless work in the face of special interest opposition. Thousands of soldiers and veterans have the services and dignity they deserve because she fought for them when they could no longer fight for themselves.

To achieve real change as president, she has done her homework and earned the deep respect of military leaders here, world leaders in 80 countries and of Republicans and Democrats alike. Unlike Obama, she can use this critical political capital, established trust, staggering depth and breadth of knowledge and hard-won wisdom to deliver on the promises she has made while keeping America and the world safe.

Hillary Clinton, as America’s first woman president, will boldly fight for you and with you to deliver meaningful change that will make your future, that of your children and grandchildren, and of this country and the world not just different, but better.

It is what good mothers and great leaders do. That is why Texans should cast their vote for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday.

Deval Patrick whom Obama emulates is a failure. “Reformer” Governor Rod Blagojevich is up to his neck, along with Obama, on Rezko druck.

Ann Richards was a fighter and a success. Ann fought and danced and started the fire when Texas gave her a chance.

Be one in a million today for Hillary.

  1. Good morning, admin. It’s a wonderful day in Hillary’s neighborhood. The MSM is falling all over itself discovering that they’re Rip Van Winkle and they’ve been hoodwinked!

  2. Thanks admin!

    Is 9:00 am too early to start the Tequila? I’m going to need it to take the edge off the day.

  3. Thanks B Merryfield. Big Media has to be ashamed. They have not done their job. The jurors in Chicago did not know who Rezko was and the newspapers in Chicago have been very good regarding Rezko.

    As more Americans wake up to what us Rezko Watchers have been writing for months the Obama campaign will go into a deep valley, never to reemerge.

    On to Denver!

  4. Anyone hearing any reports from the ground? There was a headline earlier that said they were neck-in-neck in OH, now it says neck-in-neck in TX.

  5. I’m gonna copy something I posted on my blog because it’s related:

    “Before I’d ever heard of Rezko, I’d watched the first season of Cagney and Lacey on DVD. There’s an episode about what a disgusting slumlord does to a building of poor old people; I always feel angry when watching this episode. If there’s one kind of person I really can’t stand, people who make money off poor people by harming poor people are it.

    I’ve often argued that someone, an event, a situation, etc., ideally shouldn’t be judged by looking at the stuff beside it, by looking at the stuff around it, but should instead be judged by looking at the person directly and specifically. I break my rule where people’s friends are involved. I think who a person is friends with likely reveals things about the person too.

    Friendship isn’t like marriage: you can marry someone and farther along into the marriage or even all of a sudden that person turns into someone horrible, and you may be stuck putting up with that relationship for a time because getting a divorce from a legally binding marriage isn’t easy in many situations. But divorcing a friendship usually is.

    Friendships don’t have legal contracts. People can walk away from their friends at any time. If their friends have been shown to be disgusting behaving individuals and they don’t walk away from them, then those people-who-won’t-walk-away, at the least they admire what those friends are, and may want to be like them, or maybe ARE like them.

    Slumlords disgust me–and so do friends of slumlords.”

  6. Seven years of the Bush administration have left us so hungry for change that we will accept almost any kind offered. SenatorObama says he is the agent of that change and proclaims that we are the change we seek, the change we’ve been waiting for.

    Love this!

  7. That Ann Richards video nearly made me weep like a 90 year old woman. That’s what I’m going to post on my blog tonight after the announcement is made that Hillary has taken Texas.

  8. I’m going to have a lovely day today. It raining cats and dogs here in East TN. I’m going to take a shower, get into clean jammies (yes, at 11:30 am!) , make a pot of jasmine tea , grab my blankie and a trashy romance novel, and hit the couch.

    I think tonight is going to be all about HRC. I’m not worried in the least. 🙂

  9. Thanks, rjk. Big Media is going to have egg on its face, particularly those Chicago folks who couldn’t figure out when Rezko held the Obama fundraiser. Go read.

  10. You know, I’ve been thinking. Maybe we SHOULD all get behind He Who Shall not be named. I mean, think about it, folks… he won Delaware, Iowa and Alaska. How on earth can we ever win in the GE with a candidate who can’t carry these 3 all important states???!!

    😉

  11. Idunn, a “trashy romance novel”? LMBAO!!! I’m not worried in the least either and I’m going to stick mainly to this place today because I don’t want to be infected with any doubt.

  12. Bringing the Democrats together
    Two uncommitted senators looking beyond the primary election
    By Ken Strickland
    updated 7:51 a.m. PT, Tues., March. 4, 2008

    Decisive victories in four primary states Tuesday would likely give Sen. Barack Obama the Democratic nomination for president.

    But there are ominous signs for Obama and his supporters that Sen. Hillary Clinton’s campaign will live to fight another day – or more accurately, live to fight at least another seven weeks.

    In a battle that has grown nastier by the news cycle, some are wondering who’s going to help heal the wounds of the party when the nominee is finally selected.

    Two unlikely Democratic senators are poised to start the process: Jack Reed from Rhode Island, and freshman Bob Casey from delegate-rich Pennsylvania.

    Rhode Island holds its primary Tuesday while Pennsylvania is the next “decisive” primary in April.

    Value of neutrality
    Reed and Casey are among 23 senators – almost half the caucus – who have not endorsed either of their Senate colleagues for president. And they, like all the other Senate Democrats, are also highly valued superdelegates.

    The two men believe neutral Democrats may be best positioned to clean up the mess a bitter primary could leave behind.

    Casey says for him, Democratic success in November would mean “real unity, not just consensus” from Obama and Clinton.

    “A lot of democrats are a little slaphappy, a little casual and cavalier about how the general election will go,” said Casey. “I’m concerned about unity here and I think it’s going to be more of a challenge than people realize.”

    Reed realizes it. His neutrality initially stemmed from personal relationships with the candidates which made picking among friends difficult. But now he sees another benefit.

    “Maybe that’s one advantage of being at this point uncommitted,” he said. “You can help that process along quietly. And if I can serve in that capacity, I’d like to do that.”

    Being a good sport
    A running joke in Washington, D.C., is when every member of Congress looks in the mirror they see the face of a future president. That makes the reality of defeat much harder.

    One senator, granted anonymity to speak freely about colleagues, put it this way: “It’s very difficult, after investing your whole heart and soul in something, for your whole life in most cases, to suddenly have to say, ‘Well, it’s over. I’m going to be a good sport about it.’ It’s tough. But essentially somebody’s going to have to do that.”

    With Republicans all but solidified behind Arizona’s Sen. John McCain as their nominee, Democrats are still splitting their loyalties, energy, and money.

    “If this campaign goes beyond March or April I think we’re heading into some really dangerous territory because it’s just going to get harder and harder to unify,” Casey said.

    While Obama and Clinton have both publicly committed to supporting the eventually nominee, Casey says “it’s more complicated than people want to make it.” He speaks from experience competing in three Democratic primaries in ten years, including a $30-million primary loss in a Pennsylvania governor’s race.

    “It’s one thing for Sen. Obama and Sen. Clinton to work together [on] principles,” he said. “But it’s much harder to get your workers, your supporters to really work together and not just go through the motions. If we just have the veneer of unity and people going through the motions, John McCain wins.”

    If Tuesday’s results don’t yield a nominee, Casey’s Pennsylvania holds its primary in seven weeks. And Clinton is ahead in the polls there.

    Casey has promised to remain neutral through that contest saying the will of the voters is not the exclusive factor, but an important one, in determining how he’ll cast his superdelegate vote.

    Reed says he’ll also use the results from his state as one factor that will “influence” his convention vote. Other factors include, “Where are the delegates? Who has the momentum? Who has the ability to raise the resources necessary to wage a very challenging campaign? And also who’s going to have that combination of factors, personal and political, that gives us the best chance next November.”

    Casey says strong party unity can also contribute to a “resounding” White House victory. “It’d be great to elect a Democratic president,” he said. “But it’s a hell-of-a-lot better to elect a Democratic president with a mandate.”

  13. Idunn and Tiny Dancer,

    Also, do not forget those liberal bastions of the Deep South (SC, GA, AL) and – of course – Utah. 😉

  14. In my Yahoo email, I’m now getting “Should Hillary quit?” ads. These idiots never let up with their propagandist nonsense, trying to manipulate people’s heads with a defeated image of Clinton. Where are Yahoos “Should Obama quit?” “Is Obama finished?” ads? Where were they whenever she won states? I haven’t seen a single ad like that.

    I posted this at the end of the last thread in response to Birdgal’s post about Kerry here

    http://www.hillaryis44.org/?p=521#comment-97742

    “BO has been building coalitions in red states with his wins”

    –He’s in the wrong party then.

    “he has won 25 states vs 11 for Clinton”

    –What a moron Kerry is. Yeah, states like Alaska in number of voters will make more of a difference than states like California in number of voters when CA has 60 times more people. That I voted for Kerry makes me ill, but I knew he was a moron. My vote was an anti-Bush vote.

    In my opinion, Obama also couldn’t have done all these wins without being a bully, without his bullying campaign and supporters—and more importantly, without the stupidity and desperation of a significant portion of the American populace who have fallen for his scamming-self, who have fallen for a media creation.

    Morons like Kerry, keep praising people like Obama, keep rewarding him for his bullying tactics so he keeps using even more bullying tactics. After all, that worked so well with Bush, who turned into a more stellar person the more his bullying got rewarded….NOT.

  15. I forgot to add that I do not look at the freerepublic website, but it was forwarded to me by a friend and had to share the picture.
    Let’s hope for a great day.

  16. Just spoke to my mom. She justed voted Hillary. She’s going back to caucus tonight. The precinct worker told her everyone is requesting their proof of voting slip they need to go back to caucus tonight.

    Mom said their was a huge AA presence at her site and that turnout was higher than normal. Also said one guy approached her outside about some other AA candidate. She said she had no interest in him, but asked if he could get her a Hillary button. Guy gave her a go to hell look and was shitty about it. She laughed and walked away.

    She also said tons of ads on TV explaining the caucus system. Evidently, it’s not like IA, but more of a show up and sign in as a supporter and leave. I have some qualms about whether or not it’s true, but she said the ads are explicit that conversation would prolly not be happening and for folks to keep their tempers.

    I made her promise to call me if she had any problems and to call me afterwards with a report so I could update y’all. She said she would.

    In reference to her needing a button, I told her I’ll give her mine. My His44 and my last HRC button. She’ll be here this weekend for state b-ball finals for my cousin, so I’ll give her all my stuff including my last signs (Grandma will take some I bet). I contacted SoonerDem to see if she has any reserves. I’m waiting to hear back…

    Anyhow, thought you’d want a report. I’m surprisingly calm today yet excited. I know she’s not dropping out and in this until Denver.

  17. Someone sent this to me. I can’t copy the link. Goggle the title to find it.

    Man punches Clinton suporters

    AKRON, Ohio — A man attacked Hillary Clinton campaign supporters on Market Street near a campaign headquarters Monday evening. Police said William R. Bonner, 26, took the campaign sign from supporters and tried to hit people with them. Officials said Bonner punched one of the supporters in the back of the head and took a sign away from another supporter. When Bonner was arrested he began kicking the window in the police cruiser. Police said they used pepper spray. Police determined he had a felony warrant on file in Youngstown.He was transported to the Summit County Jail.

  18. Boos greeted the screening of Obama’s message, which is the only one of the three currently available on YouTube. Obama was the only candidate to mention the safety of both Israeli and Palestinian children. “Tonight, we stand in solidarity with the people of Sderot. We let them know that they are not only in our thoughts and prayers, but that we are going to actively work with them to bring an end to these rocket attacks, to ensure that we are building a lasting peace that will allow Israeli and Palestinian children to live side by side in peace and security.”

    *****************************************************Oh,oh…Is Obama losing the Jewish vote?

  19. That picture of Barack Hussein Obama with the phone is too funny! Especially with the clock in the back reading 3:00. lol Idunn, those are some little chicken legs he’s got. lol

  20. Heard something strange on the radio news. They were reporting that a lot of people who had wanted to cross over and vote in the Democrat primary in Texas, were told that if they changed their declaration from Republican or Independent to Democrat, they could vote in the primary, BUT they would NOT be able to reverse it again before the general election in November. One guy interviewed said he did not want to give up his current affiliation for the general election, so he did not cross over.

    I thought Texas had a completely open primary ???

  21. In November it doesn’t matter which party you’re registered with — you can vote for anybody.

    Someone’s spreading lies.

  22. told that if they changed their declaration from Republican or Independent to Democrat, they could vote in the primary, BUT they would NOT be able to reverse it again before the general election in November.

    Confuse me? I thought TX was an open primary too.

  23. “MJ…wait until he loses the nomination. ”

    You know it’s the sense of entitlement that Obama supporters have that irritates me.

  24. Joe, I did, too. Huh?

    MJ, she was just trying to do her stuff, but said folks were outside for all sorts of candidates. She wasn’t approached by any Hillary supporters but it doesn’t mean they’re not there.

    Reed, her precinct is in SW Houston. It has a large AA population.

  25. “Decisive victories in four primary states Tuesday would likely give Sen. Barack Obama the Democratic nomination for president.

    But there are ominous signs for Obama and his supporters that Sen. Hillary Clinton’s campaign will live to fight another day – or more accurately, live to fight at least another seven weeks.”

    –Propagandist. The words “decisive victories” attached to Obama’s name being mentioned at the very opening of the article, and “will live to fight another day” attached to Clinton’s name being mentioned further on, as if he’s been going so strong and she’s been on life support, which is the MEDIA’S NARRATIVE, not reality.

    But what else can be expected from propagandist ever anti-Clinton MSNBC?

  26. HWSNBN needs to put down the pipe and eat some damned cake.

    (sorry, still thinking about those Skellington legs)

  27. Hi, all: was down and out with cold/flu all weekend; back today.
    Here’s a tidbit from today’s Springfield political insider blog, “Capitol Fax.” I’m including the link and text, but usually it’s by subscription.
    thecapitolfaxblog.com/2008/03/04/never-a-dull-moment/

    Never a dull moment

    Tuesday, Mar 4, 2008

    * Yesterday, the Sun-Times reported that the governor’s 2006 promise to help rebuild the fire-ravaged Pilgrim Baptist Church with $1 million in state money was never fulfilled. Instead, the cash went to a private school that took the money and moved somewhere else.

    Oops.

    Here’s the initial response…

    Blagojevich’s administration said last week the allotment to Loop Lab School fulfilled the governor’s pledge to help the church.

    But by late Sunday, aware of criticism from lawmakers and church leaders, the administration changed its tune and was scrambling to figure out what exactly had been negotiated between the state and church.

    * Then, after the story broke, the governor threw a couple of former staffers under the bus and promised more money…

    Blagojevich attributed the $1 million “bureaucratic mix-up” to the work of a couple of ex-staffers and pledged another $1 million –on top of what was erroneously spent — to help the Bronzeville architectural gem recover from a devastating 2006 fire.

    * The guv canceled other plans and rushed to a church property to hold a quickie press conference…

    ‘’I’m as frustrated as you are,” he told reporters at Pilgrim’s satellite worship space at 33rd and Indiana. “I’m angry about those who work for me who allowed this to happen. We’ve identified a couple of people involved, and they no longer work for us, but I think they made an honest mistake.”

    Actually, it was the governor who made the mistake. You’d think he’d want to check up on that church, but the promise he made was so 2006. On to the next press pop. Don’t look back or you’ll risk seeing the wreckage.

    * Blagojevich said he has no plans to ask that the other million dollars be repaid…

    “We have no indication this is not a real program,” Blagojevich said. “They went elsewhere, used the money elsewhere.”

    * Yet, nobody even knows whether the school is still functioning…

    But aides admit they’re still trying to reach the school’s director. They sent a letter to 318 W. Adams, but when CBS 2 went there, the doorman said the school uses this address, but it’s not open, nor is it operating. We couldn’t find a working number.

    So where is the school, and where is the money?

    * And the plot thickens…

    Public records show the school used the money to buy space on the second floor of a building at 318 W. Adams St.. The seller—who also lent the school $305,000—was Card LLC, a company controlled by John Thomas.

    Convicted of federal fraud and money-laundering charges in New York in 2004, Thomas became an undercover FBI mole as part of federal investigations into political corruption and real estate crimes. His role as an informant was revealed six days before the Lab School signed the papers to buy a floor of the 18-story building.

    His name, “John Thomas,” was a pseudonym. Thomas, named Bernard Barton, moved to Chicago in 2000. He ran a billboard company and several firms that invested in downtown high-rises or helped other developers obtain bank loans.

    His partner in Card LLC, developer Robert Horner, said he and Thomas are selling floors as office condos, and have sold about half the units in the Adams building. Horner confirmed the school bought the entire second floor for roughly $1.3 million in May 2007.

    * From last month’s Sun-Times interview of Thomas…

    Thomas provided a fly-on-the-wall look inside Rezko’s real estate operations and his desperate attempts to keep his projects afloat.

    Sources said Thomas also logged frequent visits to Rezko from Gov. Blagojevich and U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.). Blagojevich and Obama were among the many politicians for whom Rezko raised campaign cash. Neither has been charged with any wrongdoing.

    * One more thing. John Thomas’ lawyer is Jeffrey Steinbeck. Steinbeck is also Stu Levine’s lawyer. Steinbeck is the go-to guy if you want to cut a deal with the feds. He also represented former city treasurer Jim Laski.

    You may think Chicago is a big city, but in many ways it’s really a small town.

  28. OK what are the polls today im scared to look! not that im not confident Would someone please go to realclearpolitics? thanks I will be having vodka today!

  29. Maybe it was Saturday Night Live that woke Big Media because these nerds are so afraid of being “uncool”:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/story/2008/03/03/ST2008030303289.html?hpid=artslot

    “It took many months and the mockery of “Saturday Night Live” to make it happen, but the lumbering beast that is the press corps finally roused itself from its slumber Monday and greeted Barack Obama with a menacing growl.

    The day before primaries in Ohio and Texas that could effectively seal the Democratic presidential nomination for him, a smiling Obama strode out to a news conference at a veterans facility here. But the grin was quickly replaced by the surprised look of a man bitten by his own dog.

    Reporters from the Associated Press and Reuters went after him for his false denial that a campaign aide had held a secret meeting with Canadian officials over Obama’s trade policy. A trio of Chicago reporters pummeled him with questions about the corruption trial this week of a friend and supporter. The New York Post piled on with a question about him losing the Jewish vote.

    Obama responded with the classic phrases of a politician in trouble. “That was the information that I had at the time. . . . Those charges are completely unrelated to me. . . . I have said that that was a mistake. . . . The fact pattern remains unchanged.”

    When those failed, Obama tried another approach. “We’re running late,” the candidate said, and then he disappeared behind a curtain.

  30. In my dream of dreams…. That there is a sealed indictment with Obama’s name on it and the US Attorney is waiting to see if he is called as a defense witness and then unseals it after he testifies…..

  31. Fran: agree with everthing you said. I could barely listen to Horseface. Every time he speaks, lies come out of his mouth. He said, his Iraq vote was a mistake, and he admits it, but Hillary has not. Can you imagine the crucifying that would happen, if she ever said it was a mistake? I only watched the news for 10 minutes this a.m. Cannot stand it any longer.

    Plural: no, horseface did not mention MA, and no one asked him about it.

    Obama is not practicing new politics, but the tried and true ones of intimidation, misinformation, bullying, and pandering.

  32. Fred Armisen on SNL does a great Barack Hussein Obama! lol Sits there looking a big dumb parrot. No offense to parrots.

  33. Thanks Informed In Illinois, that story is almost parody.

    Rezko/Obama stealing kids’ lunch money is the next story.

    Amazing.

  34. plural.

    In November it doesn’t matter which party you’re registered with — you can vote for anybody.

    Of course you could vote, but apparently many did not want to retain a different political registration than their own over a period of time.

    Someone’s spreading lies

    It was a national news cut-in. Highly unlikely.

  35. I think Ed Rendell was being too generous with Obama personally…to me he might have inspired a few for awhile….but actually he has inspired thugs!

  36. The fact pattern remains unchanged

    I wasn’t aware that facts HAD patterns. Wow, maybe facts are actually fractals. 🙄

  37. As my husband and I said last night, how ridiculous that americans must look to a fictional comedy show for the truths they can’t get in their nonfictional supposed “news shows”!

    Another report I read on that conference said Obama repeatedly interrupted a female reporter. This interrupt-the-female-exclude-the-female-silence-the-female crap kept happening to Clinton at the debates, it happens to women often–by sexist creeps and misogynists.

  38. In my dream of dreams, rjk, 👿 ‘s head would spin around, gold coins would pour forth for me to donate to Hillary (and buy beer OC), and then his mouth would explode forth proving once again green clovers, blue moons don’t pour from his lips when he speaks, slime does.

  39. Just saw this on Taegan Goddard:

    Former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw reports that Sen. Barack Obama has an additional 50 superdelegates who are “ready to go public before too long.”

    If he loses OH and TX today, I wouldn’t be so sure …

  40. Fran: “Another report I read on that conference said Obama repeatedly interrupted a female reporter. This interrupt-the-female-exclude-the-female-silence-the-female crap kept happening to Clinton at the debates, it happens to women often–by sexist creeps and misogynists.”

    I am telling you, there is a reason he is able to get the old boys on his side.

  41. Hillary continues to surge ahead in national polls. According to today’s Rasmussen daily tracking poll, she’s up another point (46 to 44, vs Obama) and has made up 11 points in the last 6 days. Keep it going! 😀

  42. According to CNN about 8% of the those who voted early in TX were cross overs (Repub to Dem). That is about the same size it has been in other states that have already voted. Only in TX I think Hillary will have much higher numbers from Repubs than she has had in other states. Good news for her and the country!

  43. birdgal: what a fucking fake Kerry is! It sounds like he’s now creating a false impression of his stand on Iraq! He defended his Iraq vote in 2004 and said he WOULD VOTE THAT WAY AGAIN:

    Kerry says he’d still vote to authorize Iraq war

    By Patrick Healy, Globe Staff | August 10, 2004

    GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, Ariz. — John F. Kerry for the first time yesterday said he still would have voted to give President Bush the authority to go to war in Iraq, even if he had known in October 2002 that US intelligence was flawed, that Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction, and that there was no connection between Saddam Hussein and the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.”

    –To my knowledge Clinton has never said something like that, she’s repeatedly gone out of her way to say that knowing what she knows now, she would have never allowed Bush any authority on the issue. Yet some antiwar people held their noses and voted for Kerry but won’t vote for her? I’m tired of this bullshit about Iraq–I think it’s pure sexism. See my blog for more:

  44. Idunn – LOL – thanks, I needed that! That’s exactly how they goad and shame people into donating at Rainbow Push and many South Side churches.

  45. I think today will go well. I only worry my mom will need a bodyguard. With her three broken ribs, she’s not as tough as she used to be.

  46. RE: Kerry, that horse-faced MF couldn’t get his own folks to vote for 👿 . If he couldn’t do that, what kinda shitty president would he have made these last four years. In fact, I’d go as far as to say our country would now be overrun by long-faced zombies chanting “Brains…brains…”

  47. Sugar: I thought, she said, if she had to do it over again, she would vote differently?

    Paula: 50 superdelegates for Obama, would seal her fate, wouldn’t it?

  48. The so called progressive think that Obama is going to win the GE and I’m afraid they really believe he can win those states Hillary won before. It won’t happen because of what Obama has promise to all the groups.

    In California he promised Driver licenses for Illegals…That’s a non-starter and a good receipe for defeat.

  49. Let’s try to refrain from the, “I’m worried about…”, the, “Here’s some bad news I just heard/read, does anyone know if it’s true?”, the, “Someone, somewhere, said something negative/bad. How can that be?”, posts today, please. We are in the middle of a true resurgence and finally have many POSITIVE things happening in the campaign, so let’s keep it upbeat and LIGHT Hillfans!

    One thing that is certain; We are headed to the Democratic Convention!
    We will win the nomination. Hillary IS 44. Let’s all generate that positive energy for Hillary on this HISTORIC day. It’s WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH and we are going to make history, tonight and onward.

    God Bless you, ADMIN (Whoever you are…Hi BEN! Been looking up those .44 contributors?) for these folks and this site. This is OUR NIGHT, so let’s keep it on the upbeat.

  50. Also found this in the new ABC.WaPo poll:

    By 67-29, Dem primary voters want Hillary to stay in the race if she wins either OH or TX today.

    Also, I saw this on Taylor Marsh’s site yesterday: a column in the N.Y. Daily News saying this is Obama’s third chance to deliver a knockout punch. In other words, with all the advantages he has, why can’t he put Hillary away?

  51. Fran: birdgal: what a fucking fake Kerry is! It sounds like he’s now creating a false impression of his stand on Iraq! He defended his Iraq vote in 2004 and said he WOULD VOTE THAT WAY AGAIN:

    Kerry says he’d still vote to authorize Iraq war

    Well, he is singing a different tune now. I have heard say this, at least 3 times: 2 stump speeches and on MSNBC this a.m. Now, it was a mistake, and Obama exercised good judgement, because he was against it.

  52. Carby, I’m with you. Not only do they have Kerry, they have this too:

    (cut and paste)

    tinyurl.com/27o7zt

  53. “Pony up $5 dahluhs. I don’t care how poor you are.” WTF???? Yeah, don’t buy that gallon of milk that your baby needs, you need to help me get this power!!! He makes me so SICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  54. I just read that NewYorker profile. I have been brain-scarred.

    “Here you go, Cocky. Can you read?”

    “Cocky, I love you!” a kid screamed.

    MO sure is spreading that cock love. Think they have a shot for that?

  55. Someone who’s good buddies with a slumlord–that he’d expect poor kids to give him their lunch money isn’t surprising to me. Is that what school bullies sometimes do–steal lunch money? I think someone on here said s/he thinks Obama’s running a high school election campaign; that becomes clearer with each passing day….

  56. rjk1957,

    According to CNN about 8% of the those who voted early in TX were cross overs (Repub to Dem). That is about the same size it has been in other states that have already voted.

    With just Repub to Dem, but in Wisconsin, there were over 30% who were not Dems. Right-leaning Indies have also been playing the “Democrat for a Day” game as well.

  57. Really those are the types of videos that should be made fun of on the news comedy shows. How are they missing them??? Send it to SNL! LOL

  58. hi all

    urgent update-hillary signs have been puled by obama’s camp in most major pcts this am. the campaign needs folks to go out if they got a sign or any hil gear and show up. my yard was vanadalized this morning and sign ripped to pieces.. please help and get out to your polling location for hillary and GO TO YOUR CAUCUS GUYS. here are legal numbers should u need them-and u might today-

    art

    Legal hotline: 877-472-9465

    Houston office #1: 713-928-3187 (lawyers will be at that office for people to report problems)

  59. She seemed so comfortable and poised at the town hall meeting and the Jon Stewart interview last night. We should all feed off that. She is clearly very confident. We should be too.

  60. “hillary signs have been puled by obama’s camp in most major pcts this am. the campaign needs folks to go out if they got a sign or any hil gear and show up. my yard was vanadalized this morning and sign ripped to pieces.. ”

    ahhhh…yes, inspiration to be bullies

  61. Someone should show that hate-mail video and all the other instances of the Obama crowd’s threatening bullying behavior along to the DNC person who thinks Clinton’s supporters are “childish and whiny” and that Clinton’s campaign is “tearing up the party.” That DNC person has got everything BACKWARDS.

  62. The REalist, I agree with you. No handwringing and doom and gloom. We have been very positive and upbeat these last couple of days, let’ keep it up.

    Gallup has Hill up 3pts today. She was down by 8 to Bambi, now it is just by 5 in the 3day tracking poll. Gallup says that she had an uptick on Sunday and on Thur they should be able to get another 3day rolling poll to include Tues results.

    it seems as if all things are trending upwards for Hil. Hopefully, that continues today in TX.

  63. Maybe people should also pass that info about the signs to the DNC–show them who’s really tearing up the party–even tearing up people’s yards!

    This same damn thing happened around here in 2004–to KERRY’S signs by the Bush crowd. Every day Obama = Bush becomes more and more a reality….

  64. Fran & Idunn
    I just emailed him this:

    I I just saw your video on why you support hillary clinton.

    Can I just say this to you. People like yourself and Ohio Rep Eugene Miller, who made their choice freely to support clinton, and how have not crumbled under the pressure youmust be getting. I have to say that you are heros. People like yourself have proven to me that Dr. Kings dream is a reality, people ignoring colour and gender. You know the clintons helped us here in Northern Ireland, we suffered much the same bigotry here as you did in the USA, We still get attacked and burnt out of our homes, but the Clintons stood by us, they still do. So thank you for putting up that video, You made me cry
    God Bless, Sinead from Ireland

  65. I have very good feelings about today–I just wanted to keep on with tearing apart some of the B.S. because it’s still flowing. But I’ll try to be only positive for the rest of the day!

  66. I hope someone has notified the Clinton campaign in Houston about this. It would be great to get a film crew on it.

  67. IDunn: “Experience, that young man in the youtube video does his mama proud. ”

    You could tell that it was a very difficult thing for him to do.

  68. I expected there would be dirtiness and thuggery today. I think everyone should hang in there and keep their eyes on the prize–don’t be deterred by bullies. If the bullies win, they only become even bigger bullies.

  70. I meant to share with you last weekend that Tavis Smiley received death threats for including Hillary at the Black-State-of-the-Union in New Orleans, week before last.

    To: ts-info@tavistalks.com

    Dear Tavis:

    Thank you so much for your progressive journalism and community leadership over the years. Please know that those of us who support Hillary want racial, economic and every other kind of reconciliation possible in our communities. We know that Hillary not only sincerely shares these values and goals, but also has the strength and experience to deliver on this and many other important issues facing America.

    Tavis, please stay strong in the face of bullies who have fallen for empty promises. Know that all across America, we of goodwill support and appreciate your integrity and life’s work.

    Sincerely yours,

  71. Yep, ded. Having to be the media every day is getting tiring.

    Sinead, that’s a very nice email. People like that ARE the real heroes because they are continually going against the mainstream craziness. I respect the superdelegates like that; the others who’ve caved–they were too weak. And I don’t respect weakness.

    People should not give in to pressure–to threats! Maybe they should consider reporting threats to the police.

  72. Experience: the Chicago HRC campaign rep said he did support her, but I’m not certain. My understanding was that he was getting threats just for INVITING her! As you know, BO took a pass.

  73. informed, thanks for that

    this is just so disgraceful, obama has used race is a very dirty way!

    for that I will never forgive him

    I will never vote for him

    he is a user, he uses good men like Dr King to win at all costs

    he is evil

  74. A lot of this is ultimately the Bush crowd’s fault. I can’t stop blaming them because I can’t stand them; I think they’re a direct cause. They have brought america to this state, a state where thuggish behavior has become the new norm, even from the government. And each thug afterward will probably try to top the Bush thug.

    No more thugs. Enough already!

  75. Don’t forget that Obama is a U.S. Senator, and his deplorable behavior this primary season is even more deplorable because he’s part of the federal government here. How the hell is the Dem party letting this go on? Deplorable behavior is supposed to be the republican modus operandi.

  76. The young man in the youtube video is very wise for his young age. And, those Obamahooligans did the same thing in D.C. when we had the primary here. Went around pulling up signs and chanting O-BOMB-UH all through the neighborhoods. They are a rough group! I tell you, my apartment community is very safe, but there are some places where I am a little nervous whenever I drive through with my Hillary sticker on my car. Now, mind you, I can handle my own to a point, but if a horde of them were to pounce on me, I’d be toast! They wouldn’t care that I’m black!

    I think I was in a street race with one of the Obamazoids on Sunday. It could be in my head, but I get a lot of aggressive drivers on my tail since I put that sticker on my car.

  77. Morning all. Congratulations to B Merry. You have single handedly sown the seeds everyone else is picking up now on Rezko. You should really be proud. Great work.

    I also wanted to tell everyone that Factory at Sunrise, my diary about Hillary’s visit to the Toledo Jeep factory, was cited at TalkLeft as recommended diary of the day. And it is still on the recommended list at mydd. Working class people are at the core of the democratic party and of hillary’s support. I believe they will pull it out for her today.

    Anybody else see Hillary on Jon Stewart. She was Grrreat!! Even Stewart was laughing. She has such gumption–that’s an olf fashioned word for fighter.

    Well, I am so nervous I could babble on and on here. But I won’t. I’m gonna go do what I can to gotv.

    Goddess help us today!!

  78. Sugar,

    it must be double awful for you. I cant belive how much this has gone out of control. Obama and everyone around him, they are no “uniters” what he has managed to do with his thugs are to hurt both black and white americans and make a sham of of Dr. King IMHO

    you ar a strong woman!!

    But Hillary Clinton is a fighter and not a whinner like the “annoited” one.

  80. carbynew

    See I dont think the DNC give a royal shite about us old core dems, they have replaced us with the bots. They also believe (stupidly) that we will ALL forget the tactics they have used to get dear leader into the whitehouse. I foro ne will never forget and they will ever get my vote for their puppet

  81. Lots of reports of funny business going on in Houston, mainly damage to Hillary signs and vandalism. Okie, your mom is right. Technically they can sign and leave, but the campaign is encouraging them to stay just in case the BHO camp tries to pull a fast one. I’ll be at one of the most busiest precincts today and will try and report as time permits.

  82. im reporting this, it troubles me, smells like bullshit

    >>>>>>>>>>>

    However, there is no such item posted on the latinos for obama site
    Why would something like this be pushed at this time when the primaries are happening today, this was posted 25 Feb. Makes me wonder if the Latinos for Hillary site was set up by a mole. The campaign is very heated right now and this makes no sense, not at THIS time in the process. Wonder if they are doing this to attempt to get the hill latinos to “come to obama” with koolaid. When I searh the guy who sets this up I find he runs a group on the Official Obama site called Ogle County for Obama, and you can joi it right there, he says in his post on Bambis site:
    Ogle County for Obama
    This is a local grassroots organization to endorse and support the Candidacy of Illinois Senator Barack Obama for President of the United States. It is the hope that the Ogle County group will coordinate with surrounding cities and counties, the 16th district group, and the state and federal campaigns.

  84. 7 pm EST – Polls close Vermont

    7:30 pm EST – Polls close Ohio

    8 pm EST – Polls close in Texas, excluding the area surrounding El Paso

    9 pm EST – Polls close in Rhode Island

    9 pm EST – Polls close in precincts in and around El Paso, Texas

  85. ExperienceMatters, he has made a SHAM of Dr. King’s name. The really scary thing is, not matter how much damning information comes out about this guy, they refuse to accept or even acknowledge it. When I was in S.C. for the primary there, some black folks almost appeared to be sneaking a chance to wave at me and fellow Hillary supporters as we held signs and passed out literature because they didn’t want other blacks around us to notice! I laugh about it now because I love my people to death, but we are a strange bunch when it comes to some things. As I’m sure any ethnicity has “some things” that aggravate others in the group. lol

  86. sugar

    I feel ya, more than you can know, seriously..

    I have been deeply disturbed at this election

    Honestly when it first began I did not have this hatred for Obama, I still was for hillary, only because I know the clintons and they are good people. I know what they did here for us, I saw it and them. Not a racist bone in their bodies. Had hillary lost I would have been upset of course, BUT becasue opf howad dean and the DNC grandees fiddles and the race card used against clinton, and I believe against america as well, that is when I began to really se just who he was

  87. I can’t remember which specific ones, but I’ve read there have been contentious crazy dangerous elections in america’s distant past. It’s like America’s been going backwards lately. I think environmental collapse is affecting people’s brains, which affects their behavior.

    America survived those bad times; I’m hoping it can survive this one too. With very intelligent people making very intelligent decisions, the odds of surviving go up.

    Go Clinton! Go AMERICA!

  88. Fran,

    how many telephone calls have you placed today? have you demonstrated your commitment to hillary today?

  89. Because most of the Core Democrats don’t want him. If it wasn’t for the Repugs crossing over to pump his numbers up Obama would have been out long time ago.

    I agree, carbynew.

  90. Sugar, what you described–I felt the same way for years because I hated Bush and live in a conservative area. I didn’t often say so in person because he, too, had that teflon thing going on and his supporters had that kool-aid thing going on. Whatever you’d say went right over their heads without leaving an affect; their minds were impenetrable.

    I thought I’d finally be able to take a breath soon–and here some americans have been trying to push things back to that terrible time again–and now it’s supposed left-americans! It’s like they’ve learned NOTHING these past eight years.

    More power to the ones who HAVE learned something!

  91. Well, it’s a good thing the tides are starting to turn. I feel very good about our chances from here on out. Barack Hussein Obama will get more desperate, but in the end, he will lose because I don’t think any of the superdelegates expected the media to begin vetting him so soon. Now that the general public is getting the information, those Supers will be forced to reconsider their positions in the coming weeks.

  92. Schedule for tonight. Notice Hillary has a “celebration” for 7:30 p.m. when the polls close in OH:
    * 7:30 pm
    * Hillary Clinton holds an election night celebration in Columbus, Ohio

    * 8:00 pm
    * Mike Huckabee hosts a Republican Primary watch party in Irving, Texas
    * John McCain holds an election night party in Dallas, Texas

    * 10:00 pm
    * Barack Obama holds a primary night event in San Antonio, Texas

    BTW, those comments by Michelle Obama’s brother are just awful. He even called Bill Clinton a liar.

  93. Oh, crap. Forgot to edit my http stuff out.

    Here’s the stuff again:

    blogs.wsj.com/numbersguy/vermonts-outsize-influence-290/

    Vermont’s Outsized Influence

    Texas had 23.5 million residents in 2006, according to the U.S. Census Bureau — more than twice the population of Ohio at the time. Yet in today’s primary, Ohio has just 27% fewer delegates at stake than Texas. Meanwhile, Texas has 38 times the number of people as Vermont, but just 13 times more delegates at stake. Rhode Island has more than twice the number of delegates as Texas, per-person.

    Campaign 2008

    Several factors are at play here, and all work against Texas. As I noted on Super Tuesday, delegate counts use the Electoral College count as proxy for population. So, like with the electoral college, smaller states benefit. So do states with slow-growing population, because the Electoral College is based on Congressional seats, which are based on the 2000 Census. Since then, Texas has grown by nearly 2.7 million people; the other three states voting today have picked up fewer than 160,000 people in that time. Democratic voting in recent elections also plays a role, and Texas has been a weaker state for the party than the other three, of late.

    All of these disparities concern pledged delegates, whose votes are supposed to be tied to the states’ popular votes. Superdelegates, whose votes aren’t bound, also aren’t tied to states’ population. Instead, they reflect the residence of Democratic National Committee members and the significant political offices held by Democrats in the states. As a result, Vermont has a superdelegate for every 78,000 people, according to the 2006 population figures; for Texas, it’s one in 672,000.

  94. Oy, will you stop the calls pressure? “Demonstrate my commitment”– when you say and do stuff like this, you sound like a cult, forcing actions onto people. People can only do what they can, and they can contribute in a gazillion different ways.

    I’m doing everything I can with my WRITING VOICE and dissections of the propaganda to support Clinton. I’ve made donations. I can’t make calls. I can’t access most of the pages on her site, including the call and donation page, can only access a few in IE, and I’m an antisocial hermit. I do not want to talk to Obama supporters, just like I did not want to talk to Bush supporters and so didn’t talk to them. That’s my right; I refuse to talk to religious nuts, cult people and so on. I don’t want to be subconsciously affected by their mania.

    I’ll leave the calling to people who are more comfortable with calling, who are good on the phone, which I’m not. I’m a great speaker in person though.

  96. I’m a former Texan and I feel good about today, I really do. I think Hillary’s going to do better than the MSM expected. Today is going to be like New Hampshire, and the difference is that THIS time the media finally has to start scrutinizing Mr. Empty Suit. How embarrassing that Tina Fey essentially had to GOAD them into doing their jobs.

    GO HILLARY GO!!

  97. i am looking forward to donate another 160 USD in march if results are favourable to us today 🙂

  98. But Fran, only 768 people have visited your website. I believe you can reach more people if you place a few telephone calls.

  99. Sheesh pulchritude, if she says she won’t be any good at it, what’s the use? I don’t like making those calls either. I’m better on the ground, canvassing and such.

  100. Fran: I agree with you. Everybody has their own way contributing that feels right for their personality or even their situation. Some people can only contribute by just being on this website offering support.

  101. Lets not get into it with each other. If someone doesn’t feel comfortable calling that’s okay. Fran is a full on Hillary supporter and I appreciate her contributions to this site.

    I’m at work. I can’t call. Doesn’t make me any less of a supporter.

  102. …Excuse me? Now you’re going to insult my blog’s traffic? I’ve been doing what I can. I can’t help it if my species contains many sexist idiots who continually ignore my writing because I’m a woman.

  103. i want to call… but i have concerns whether half of people that i am going to call can understand my Indian accent.. so i refrained from calling over the weekend… hahahaha 🙂

  104. Why are there people fighting/arguing? Everyone helps in their own way because everyone is different.

    Sheesh, it was so positive around here…

  105. Pulchtride, what the hell is your problem? Not everyone feels comfortable making calls and they help other ways like giving donations. This is the first time I have ever called anyone out but WTF?

  106. More positive polling news: Gallup’s tracking poll today has Hillary and Obama tied at 45! Just two days ago, he was up by 8.

  107. I’m HORRIBLE on the phone. I sound 12 and I get very valley girl and talk very very fast when I get nervous. I’d be a bigger detriment than a help. Really. I’m good at canvassing and visibility. That’s hard to do when you’re not in the statethats voting though. I guess I could go hang out on a Seattle street corner with a sign…hang with the Ron Paul folks who are everywhere.

  108. @ Sugar,

    I live in DC too, and I can confirm your experience w/ the Obama-thugs. I find it very interesting that during the ’06 mayoral primary, half the houses on any given block in my neighborhood had one candidate’s name or another on display. That’s because this is a *very* politically active neighborhood. Yet during the DC primary, I hardly saw ANY signage in the same streets. Also, I’ve seen our precinct’s voter attendance numbers which is how I know we voted in record numbers (a subsection of Shaw, btw). We are a gentrifying area and we have a fair amount of youth-thug type crime (high school age kids attacking people on their way home from the metro sort of thing). I think a lot of us have really feared acts of vandalism if we put our political opinions on display. Obama-thugs are real.

  109. Fran, Sugar, BMerryfield, whoever runs IronMyVote and others: We have been meaning to do an article highlighting other Hillary support sites. When you guys post it is a good idea to include your URLs and drive up traffic to your sites.

    We get quite a bit of traffic here and love to spread the love to Hillary love sites.

  112. Angry Barack Obama bombarded by media

    BY MICHAEL SAUL
    DAILY NEWS POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT

    Tuesday, March 4th 2008, 1:51 AM

    SAN ANTONIO, Tex. – An exasperated Barack Obama scurried away Monday from the toughest news conference of his campaign, telling reporters who kept shouting questions that he’d spent enough time on the grill.

    “Come on! I just answered, like, eight questions,” Obama, looking surprised, told shouting reporters as he fled the room. “We’re running late.”

    The Clinton campaign has long complained that Obama gets soft treatment from the press corps. But Monday’s exchange was no pillow fight.

    The first question was about a private talk an Obama economic adviser had with a Canadian official – reportedly saying that the harshness of Obama’s criticisms of the North American Free Trade Agreement was for political show.

    Last week, Obama denied an initial media report about the conversation. But after a Canadian government memo surfaced, he acknowledged yesterday there was a conversation.

    “When I gave you that information, that was the information that I had at the time,” he said. His camp still disputes the memo’s account of the discussion.

    The questioning then turned to Obama’s links to ex-fund-raiser Tony Rezko, who went on trial in Chicago Monday on corruption charges. A reporter asserted Obama hadn’t fully answered journalists’ questions on Rezko.

    Obama insisted he had – during a past news conference with Chicago media. But another persisted that questions remain unanswered, such as ones about fund-raisers Rezko held for him.

    Obama replied, “These requests, I think, can just go on forever. …” He said the “pertinent” information had been provided.

    When Obama declared the press conference over, one reporter yelled that he was dodging questions just minutes after claiming he wasn’t.

    Ohio official rejects Obama poll-watcher letter

    An official in the office of the Ohio Secretary of State has written local election officials instructing them not to accept an Obama campaign letter (.pdf) as sufficient documentation for poll-watchers to polling places.

    The state’s rules require a formal certification process for poll monitors. The Obama campaign, however, has distributed a letter signed by its state director, Paul Tewes, which states that the letter’s bearer is “hereby authorized to serve as a legal poll monitor.”

    Deputy Assistant Secretary of State David Farrell wrote that Obama supporters have been presenting the letter to officials at polling sites, and attached the letter to his email, which appears to have been sent to election officials around the state.

    “Our office’s legal interpretation is that this letter is not legally sufficient on its own to allow someone to gain access to polling places,” Farrell writes. “To be allowed access to a polling location an observer must be duly appointed as an official observer and have an official observer certificate…. Someone who wants to observe may present the attached letter in addition to the official observer certificate, but they must have the official observer certificate to legally gain entry.”

    Dear Boards of Elections Directors, Deputy Directors, and Members:

    Attached is a copy of a letter being presented by Sen. Obama supporters to election officials at polling locations. Our office’s legal interpretation is that this letter is not legally sufficient on its own to allow someone to gain access to polling places.

    To be allowed access to a polling location an observer must be duly appointed as an official observer and have an official observer certificate issued pursuant to R.C. 3505.21, which in part states: “Observers appointed to a precinct may file their certificates of appointment with the presiding judge of the precinct at the meeting on the evening prior to the election, or with the presiding judge of the precinct on the day of the election.” Someone who wants to observe may present the attached letter in addition to the official observer certificate, but they must have the official observer certificate to legally gain entry.

    Please refer to SOS Directive #2008-29 (Rights And Limitations on Election Observers) for more detailed information.

    If you have additional questions, please contact a member of the SOS Election Legal Counsel staff at (614) 466-2585.

  114. bcc I pray you are right about Texas.

    I have no confidence in my gut feelings. They told me she would

    wrap this up a long time ago

  115. thank you, mj. i am placing a telephone call as i type this comment. EVERYONE MUST TELEPHONE TEXAS.

  116. hillfans, im off to work. i would love to be here blogging and calling but i have to pay the bills(and donate to hillary). GOOD LUCK TO EVERYBODY AND HILLARY. SHE NEEDS US!!!

  117. Laney,

    sorry im late thanking you, it’s tea time here, just finished eating. Had to get take away from the chip shop, can’t cook on electin night for heavens sake!!

    thanks for that, I watched it streaming last night, it was grand!!

    i loved that lady

  118. dedfg,

    i just submitted a comment at taylor marsh’s blog. it was a brief comment, as i am presently speaking to a texan.

  119. linfar says: “Not just Houston where Obamabots running wild. Get this from Ben Smith:
    Ohio official rejects Obama poll-watcher letter”

    That is illegal!!! I hope the papers report on this.

  120. do you think there is lot of ground effort in OHIO to drive elderly to poll places.. i think they should be having because most of DEM party in OHIO supports hillary clinton…

  121. Here’s the e-mail I made and forwarded. Cut and paste and send it on with a priority stamp. Edit the http so it hyperlinks.

    Word is something major is afoot in Texas to suppress our voters. We need all hands on deck making calls.

    We already know that our supporters are being assaulted in OH and that our Texas operations are being vandalized. Show them who is boss and make calls. Even 10-15 calls will help.

    Go to h t t p : / / tools.hillaryclinton.com/calling/ and start now. Polls close in most of Texas at 7CST and then the causus starts immediately. Remind your folks to keep their voting slip for re-admittance at 7 for the Caucus.

    If the the folks you contact have experienced problems, have them call:
    Legal hotline: 877-472-9465

    Houston office #1: 713-928-3187 (lawyers will be at that office for people to report problems)

    Also, if you know someone personally in Texas, call them directly. It may cost you a long distance call, but your personal connection to them may help Hillary more.

    Get out there and make a difference.

  122. Just curious, Did we reach the 50,000 contributors in 72 hours goal? Last I saw, it was up to 43,000 +.

  123. “receiving reports that contrary to Texas Democratic party caucus rules that preclude registration forms from being submitted before either 7:15 pm or the last vote at a precinct has been cast, Obama volunteers are handing out the forms at precincts today and asking people to fill them in and then collecting them. For Obama to submit the forms on the voters’ behalf without the voter physically being present at the caucus would violate the rules.”

  124. 👿 sounds dejected:

    “I have been a little surprised,” he added. “This whole spin that the press is being so tough of them and not tough on us. I just didn’t expect you guys would bite.”

    He also described the election today as “very, very tight” and spoke several times of moving his campaign in the next week to Wyoming and Mississippi — both expected to be strong states.

    “We started at 20 points behind in Texas and Ohio,” he said. “We closed the gap. … We know there is not going to be a huge shift in delegates.”

    When asked if he expected Clinton to bow out if she does not win decisively today, Obama would only say that she was a “tenacious” and “determined” campaigner.

  125. An account from talkleft.com:

    Just wanted to write in and let you know what’s going on here today in Houston. (FYI, I’m white, male, in my 30’s, and support Clinton)

    I went to vote this morning in the Meyerland/Bellaire area of Houston. (The area has a real mix of people – different ages, races – and is very much a middle to middle-upper income.) When I left, I was stopped and asked to participate in an exit poll survey sponsored by all of the networks and major papers. This is the first time I’ve ever been asked to do this.

    As I entered my polling place wearing a Clinton button, Obama’s supporters (about 6 of them) literally gave me dirty looks and turned their back on me. Other voters were greated with hellos, good mornings, and hope you’ll vote for Obama. The attitude of Obama’s campaigners to me was rather nasty. It was a real turn-off to me, and if he’s the nominee, I’ll really have to think twice about voting in the general election.

    Other information: At my polling place there were TONS of Obama signs all over the place, not a single Clinton sign. As I mentioned, about 6 Obama people outside, not a single Clinton person. Inside the polling place, it looked like 2 of the 10 or so machines were off-line (a tech was there working on them), but there was no wait. (A precinct judge said it was very busy at 7am).

  127. Clinton’s “Moral Claim”

    Sunday’s Meet the Press featured a spirited debate between James Carville, Mary Matalin, Mike Murphy, and Bob Shrum. Shrum made a very insightful point, noting that Hillary Clinton has to find some kind of “moral claim” to the nomination if she hopes to take it from Barack Obama.

    This is a concise version of an argument I made last week – that Clinton needs to assert that she is the “legitimate” candidate of her party. I particularly like the use of the word “claim” because it underscores how legitimacy is contestable. Both she and Obama will make claims to the nomination that the super delegates will arbitrate.

    I talked briefly last week about the specific claim Clinton could make. Today, I want to outline it in more detail. Essentially, Clinton is going to assert that Obama’s plurality victory among pledged delegates does not necessarily entitle him to the nomination. Counting up the pledged delegates is one way to measure popular support, but it is not the only one. I don’t even think it is the best one – at least from the standpoint of persuading the super delegates.

    The most persuasive method is to count the votes. This is why the Obama campaign needs to be careful. Clinton could acquire a powerful argument for her nomination. Obama currently has a slight lead in the popular vote (52% to 48%), excluding Florida and Michigan. However, if Clinton wins Ohio, Texas, and Pennsylvania – his lead will be under threat. This is also where Florida and Michigan come into play. I get the sense that few neutral Democratic politicos are interested in seating the Michigan and Florida delegations while the nomination is up for grabs. That’s good for Obama. But what about factoring their voters into the counts? I think Obama can convincingly argue against factoring Michigan in, as he was not on the ballot. However, he’ll have a harder time arguing that super delegates should ignore Florida voters.

  135. 5 Reasons Clinton Might Win

    For weeks, the widespread expectation among most campaign journalists has been that the race for the Democratic nomination will, for all practical purposes, come to an end Tuesday night with a victory for Barack Obama.

    Given the predictive record of reporters so far this election cycle, that is by itself a good reason to believe that Hillary Rodham Clinton is headed later this evening for a game-changing comeback in Ohio and Texas.

    Read the article at http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0308/8820.html

  136. dot48, continue to telephone. the day of the election is always the most difficult, as voters are already exhausted with the campaign.

  137. Did someone post above about what his people are doing with these illegal shenanigans. I don’t totally understand it. Talk Left has the details. Something about proxy caucus votes. I hope Hill sends out some lawyers, asap.

  138. @mj

  144. Quote at Ambinder’s over the poll watcher letter flap when an :evil:bot whined “why didn’t the SoS say something???”

    I freaking love this answer:

    “It is not the job of the Secretary of State to question why a candidate did not ask for observers. It is the responsibility of Obama’s campaign to follow the laws and procedures of elections IF he wishes to have observers. No one is required to have them.

    The procedure is public information, the correct forms are available, and the requirements are clearly outlined. This has nothing to do with the Clinton campaign.

    Here in Ohio, the board of elections has been working for months to re-build the voting system from the crappy, hackable mess the Republican leadership left.

    Obama and Hillary are ultimately on the same side. We have enough hate mongering from the right wing, give the anti- Hillary crap a rest.

Writing about this election will probably be the last writing I do for a long time, it’s like Fran’s Last Writing Stand. I’ve quit at doing all the rest of my writing because there have been no rewards involved for me–why it doubly hurts when my places, my writing and I get insulted for lack of traffic, for lack of attention. In more than one way, I’m damned if I advertise, damned if I don’t. I’m just damned.

Who knows, without the existence of this blog, and the facts that it provided, I may have become sucked up into the Obamamania. I am happy to report that I am still a staunch Hillary supporter, and am donating another 10.44 cents to her campaign today!!!

  162. Ben’s spin on voting irregularities….Notice he takes the 👿 side? Also notice, 👿 is already whining? Hillary may have shed a tear before NH, but at least she hasn’t boo-fucking-hooed like that assmonkey. (NOTE: misspellings are Ben’s, not mine)

    Clinton campaign: “irregularlties”; Obama aide: Clinton “may want to depress turnout”

    The state directors of the two presidential campaigns in Ohio are exchanging heated charges, on thin evidence, of misbehavior on the part of the rival campaign.

    Cinton’s Ohio State director, Robbie Mook, complained in a statement to the Ohio press of “troubling reports of irregularities and inappropriate behavior by Sen. Obama’s campaign across the state.”

    Mook cited one incident in Akron of an aggressive poll watcher, and reports from Cincinnati of the rather minor sin of wearing campaign buttons in polling places.

    Obama’s Ohio State director, Paul Tewes, warned in a statement just posted to the campaign’s website of the Clinton campaign’s desire to “depress turnout,” and listed to problems Obama supporters and poll monitors have reported in Ohio today.

    “We understand that the Clinton campaign may want to depress turnout because Barack Obama has closed a 20-point gap over the course of this month as voters across the state got to know him,” Tewes wrote.

    “We have received reports from around the state of independents and Republicans who chose to vote in the Democratic primary receiving issue only or Republican ballots instead of the Democratic ballot they were entitled to. We have also had reports that the voter ID requirements have been misstated at various locations, causing some voters to be turned away,” he said.

    There’s no real evidence that these incidents go beyond the usual chaos, and the tit-for-tat charges of irregularities has been an occasional feature of the primary campaign. But while the charges are common features of election-day politicking, they have also helped convince supporters of each candidate that the nomination is at risk of being stolen by the other.

    Obama’s campaign complained most vociferously of irregularities during the Nevada Caucuses, drawing counter-charges from Clinton. The last warning like this came during the Louisiana primary, in which the Obama campaign warned of “irregularities” that don’t appear to have been surfaced after the fact.

  163. Is Lynn Sweet reading Big Pink?

    Here is the headline to her story today:

    Obama talks a lot, but answers little

    http://www.suntimes.com/news/sweet/823939,CST-NWS-sweet04.article

    As Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) closed a combative press conference on Monday, where he was thrown seriously off message being asked about influence peddler Tony Rezko and why his campaign at first denied his economic adviser Austan Goolsbee met the Canadian consul in Chicago and talked about NAFTA, some reporters — me included — wanted him to take more questions.

    “Guys,” said Obama, who is campaigning on a platform that there should be more government transparency. “I mean come on. I just answered like eight questions,” he said as he waved and left to a chorus of shouted questions.

    I could see why Obama wanted to wrap it up. On the day before crucial votes in Ohio, Texas, Rhode Island and Vermont that could make him the Democratic presidential nominee, Obama, for the first time in his campaign, was facing two potential landmines.

    It was just Obama’s luck that by coincidence on this particular day he had a contingent of Chicago journalists to deal with who are not, well, shy because we have covered Obama for years. I was there, as well as Sun-Times political columnist Carol Marin and CBS2 political reporter Mike Flannery.

    Rezko’s federal corruption trial started Monday, and there are still basic questions Obama and his campaign have not answered about their relationship. Rezko was an Obama fund-raiser who figures in the deal that let the Obamas buy their Kenwood home.

    Let’s leave aside a running disagreement over whether Obama will sit down with the Chicago investigative reporters who are most familiar with the details of the Rezko story. Monday was a new day.

    At this press conference, Obama was asked specifically a few of the more simple questions about his relationship with Rezko, including how many fund-raisers he hosted (one has been reported), who attended these fund-raisers and would he disclose the closing documents for his home.

    At first he made it seem it had all been asked and answered. But I was at the one press conference he referred to — in Waukegan in November 2006 before the election, just after the initial wave of stories came out on the house deal. (I reposted the Waukegan transcript on my blog.)

    “You may still have questions, which I am happy to answer,” Obama said to Marin, adding it is not fair to “suggest somehow” he has been trying to hide something.

    Soon after he said, “If there is a specific question that you have, Carol, I’ll be happy to respond to it.”

    Obama added as the press conference progressed, “If there are specific requests in terms of information that you feel that you don’t yet have, we will be happy to talk about that.”

    And then there was the fourth happy. “If there is a specific question that you have, I am happy to respond to it.”

    For all the happy talk, nothing was forthcoming on Monday.

  164. HEY ALL – PLS GET ON THE PHONES PLS AND PHONE BANK FOR TX (or OH) using the HC.com tools. In TX, remind everyone that they should vote during the day in the primary, and THEN CAUCUS – show up around 6:30 to line up and at the caucus WHEN IT OFFICIALLY STARTS, sign in and state their preference for Presidential candidate.

  165. lol Sugar. I didn’t mean that as derogatory directed at anyone–it’s just a cliche I like because it reminds me of my grandmother who loved to sing and was a good singer. (And, yes, she was very overweight, which ultimately killed her unfortunately….)

    I think the people who’ve been talking with DB should let her know about all the “tearing up the party” that’s been going on, and who’s likely doing it. All the reports of signs being torn out of yards and other dirty dealings–that could be republicans doing some of it, but I doubt all of it.

  166. Texan, is anything going right? You are scaring the heck out of me. Same with OH. Her campaign is complaining about irregularties. That doesn’t sound good.

  167. Okay, someone hold me back because if I find this stoooooopid bitch, I am going to bitch slap her so hard, her great-great-great grandbabies will say “WTF was ‘dat?”

    Honestly, it’s always the Clintons and perhaps some law enforcement needs to confront that campaign. I mean it was the Clinton campaign who had to fire 4 to 5 people after they admitted they started the Muslim rumor on Obama. It was one of her supporters who admitted he came out with racial slurs against Obama. It was Bill Clinton who came out with racial remarks against Obama. It was the Clinton campaign who slapped the lawsuit in Nevada. It was the Clinton campaign who has been throwing the dirt at Obama and on and on it goes. And so they seriously need to be confronted about their heinous and illegal tactics. Posted By: RuthieM | March 04, 2008 at 03:25 PM”

    GRRRR!!!!

  168. Texan, is anything going right? You are scaring the heck out of me. Same with OH. Her campaign is complaining about irregularties. That doesn’t sound good.

    That statement, in a nutshell, sums up his campaign. ANY time there is anything off-script, or any time where he’s asked to actually ANSWER or OWN UP to his own mistakes, he freezes up or tries to run away.

  171. Okie, the media keeps floating that propagandist meme about Clinton trying to suppress voters–it’s projection from what the other side’s actually been doing. And it sounds ridiculous to people who know about Obama’s glibly dismissing all the votes cast in Florida and arguing against their counting–and his supporters doing the same!

  172. And so they seriously need to be confronted about their heinous and illegal tactics.

    Piss off, Ruthie. If your boy can’t handle the heat, maybe he should let someone else flip the flapjacks. 🙄

  173. “That statement, in a nutshell, sums up his campaign. ANY time there is anything off-script, or any time where he’s asked to actually ANSWER or OWN UP to his own mistakes, he freezes up or tries to run away.”

    –And who does that remind people of? Think hard because this is a trick question…NOT.

  174. I saw an articale stating that BO will release his Feb. fund raising numbers after tonight and that will help HC out of the race. Well… when she wind RI, OH, and TX, everyone going to say…”with all that money, you couldn’t close the deal”.

  175. Look all – things are looking good in TX – Mary Steenburgen and Ted Dansen stopped by today at our Houston office and said that the President feeling very confident about TX.

    We still have to work hard to deliver this!

  176. Exactly, JAS. The American people are not going to be bought by another rookie unknown running for President. It happened once in 2000, and it’s time to turn the page.

    Ask Tough Questions? Yes, They Can!

    By Dana Milbank
    Tuesday, March 4, 2008; A02

    SAN ANTONIO It took many months and the mockery of “Saturday Night Live” to make it happen, but the lumbering beast that is the press corps finally roused itself from its slumber Monday and greeted Barack Obama with a menacing growl.

    The day before primaries in Ohio and Texas that could effectively seal the Democratic presidential nomination for him, a smiling Obama strode out to a news conference at a veterans facility here. But the grin was quickly replaced by the surprised look of a man bitten by his own dog.

    Reporters from the Associated Press and Reuters went after him for his false denial that a campaign aide had held a secret meeting with Canadian officials over Obama’s trade policy. A trio of Chicago reporters pummeled him with questions about the corruption trial this week of a friend and supporter. The New York Post piled on with a question about him losing the Jewish vote.

    Obama responded with the classic phrases of a politician in trouble. “That was the information that I had at the time. . . . Those charges are completely unrelated to me. . . . I have said that that was a mistake. . . . The fact pattern remains unchanged.”

    When those failed, Obama tried another approach. “We’re running late,” the candidate said, and then he disappeared behind a curtain.

    Before he beat his hasty retreat, however, Obama found time to assign blame for the tough questions suddenly coming his way. “The Clinton campaign has been true to its word in employing a ‘kitchen sink’ strategy,” he protested. “There are, what, three or four things a day?”

    Spoken like a man who had just been hit on the head with a heavy piece of porcelain.

    Obama may be the front-runner in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, but to a large extent Hillary Clinton is setting the terms of the debate in the final days before Tuesday’s crucial primaries. If Clinton doesn’t win both states, even her closest advisers have said she’ll face pressure to pull out of the race — and yet, for the first time in months, she seems to have put Obama on the defensive.

    First came her ringing-phone ad last week: “It’s 3 a.m., and your children are safely asleep. Who do you want answering the phone?” Then the Clinton campaign trumpeted the acknowledgment that a top Obama aide had discussed NAFTA with a Canadian official — contradicting adamant denials by Obama and his underlings. Add to that the opening of the trial in Chicago for Obama pal Tony Rezko, and Obama had lost any hope of controlling the theme of the day.

    Even the much-mocked Clinton assertion that she offers “solutions” instead of Obama’s “speeches” appears to have spooked him into a change in tactics. The candidate has largely disarmed himself of the mass rallies that have been the high points of his campaign in favor of small and sober town hall forums.

    And so, Obama found himself in San Antonio on Monday, presenting a small group of veterans with a collection of small-bore policies that sounded downright Clintonian. “I led a bipartisan effort to improve outpatient facilities. . . . I passed legislation to get family members health care while they’re caring for injured troops. . . . I’ve introduced legislation to make sure each service member receives electronic copies of their medical and service records upon discharge.”

    The modest proposals were met with modest applause.

    For 40 slow minutes, Obama delivered his policy prescriptions and answered questions from the veterans. “I want the budgets to come in on time!” he told one questioner. He pledged to another his support for SR 1838, a new VA facility in the Rio Grande Valley. He told a third questioner about his plan for a $4,000 tuition credit. And the great orator found himself proclaiming that “it makes sense to have transferability.”

    Whatever. Reporters, at tables in the back of the room, answered e-mails and read newspapers. Obama, by making no news in his speech, had left them plenty of time to plot their ambush — executed minutes later to the obvious surprise of the candidate.

    “I don’t have any preliminary statement,” Obama said as he began his news conference, encouraging reporters to “just dive in.” That was a mistake.

    Tom Raum of the Associated Press led off with a question about whether an Obama aide had told Canadians not to take seriously the candidate’s public rhetoric critical of the NAFTA trade agreement. “Let me, let me, let me, let me just be absolutely clear what happened,” Obama answered, explaining that the meeting was a “courtesy” and involved no “winks and nods.”

    Then an agitator — columnist Carol Marin with the Chicago Sun-Times — broke in. Marin, a visitor to the Obama entourage who accused the regulars of being too “quiet,” accused the candidate of concealing details about fundraisers Rezko had for him and a real estate transaction between the two.

    “I don’t think it’s fair to suggest somehow that we’ve been trying to hide the ball on this,” Obama answered. But this only provoked a noisy back-and-forth between Marin, Sun-Times colleague Lynn Sweet and Michael Flannery from Chicago’s CBS affiliate. “How many fundraisers? . . . Who was there? . . . Disclosure of the closing documents?”

    Obama, while repeating his formulation that it was “a boneheaded move” to do business with Rezko, tried to shut down the requests for more information. “These requests, I think, could just go on forever,” he said. “At some point, what we need to try to do is respond to what’s pertinent.”

    Reporters, however, had a different idea of what was pertinent, and the questions about Rezko, NAFTA and other unpleasant subjects continued to come. An aide called out “last question,” and Obama made his move for the exit — only for reporters to shout after him in protest. “C’mon, guys,” he pleaded. “I just answered, like, eight questions.”

    The questioning, however, has only just begun.

  178. It happened once in 2000, and it’s time to turn the page.

    Actually, it happened twice. Once in 2000 and again in 2004. (I say that because, I STILL don’t know a damned thing about Bushie, other than the fact that his IQ is around 98. 🙁

  179. Umm, if the amount of money you had determined your success… Well then, Mitt Romney would be going to the convention.

  180. To reiterate;

    Let’s try to refrain from the, “I’m worried about…”, the, “Here’s some bad news I just heard/read, does anyone know if it’s true?”, the, “Someone, somewhere, said something negative/bad. How can that be?”, posts today, please. We are in the middle of a true resurgence and finally have many POSITIVE things happening in the campaign, so let’s keep it upbeat and LIGHT Hillfans!

    One thing that is certain; We are headed to the Democratic Convention!
    We will win the nomination. Hillary IS 44. Let’s all generate that positive energy for Hillary on this HISTORIC day. It’s WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH and we are going to make history, tonight and onward.

    God Bless you, ADMIN (Whoever you are…Hi BEN! Been looking up those .44 contributors?) for these folks and this site. This is OUR NIGHT, so let’s keep it on the upbeat.

  181. Thought I’d share this….definately a deep sense of malaise from BO supporters all over the web…..

    Here’s a direct quote from one on politico….

    … I’m in an early stage of nausea … am considering not watching the returns tonight and just spending some time on the beach with my wife and a bottle of Jack.

  182. mj, maybe you could burn some of that nervousness at a local campaign office, there’s bound to be something you can do to take your mind away from the worrying, and the great thing is you could be near other people that adore Hillary too.

    Just a suggestion.

    We all want Hillary to win!

  183. “I am going to bitch slap her so hard, her great-great-great grandbabies will say “WTF was ‘dat?””

    Give OkieAtty some room! lol

    Fran, I know you didn’t mean anyone in particular. lol It just kind of fit after all of the exchanges DB had with Hillary supporters yesterday. I’m ready to go home!!! If traffic wasn’t so bad here in the D.C. metro, I might be able to make it home in time to make a few calls myself, but it will be too late. I tried to get them to give me one of those scripts/sheets with the number for the automatic caller thingy, but they were holding on to them tightly wanting to make sure the Obamazoids don’t call voters on their dime. If I had that, I could make those calls while I drive, but oh well…

  184. Obama is sounding petty and ridiculous, once again. From the NYT (scroll below). Obama doesn’t even realize HOW one-sided his coverage has been. This demonstrates what an egomanic the guy is. In his mind, all the GLOWING and fawning coverage from the mainstream media STILL isn’t good enough for him.

    The fact that SNL spoofed the media bias against Hillary not ONE, but TWO weeks in a row shows exactly how pervasive the problem is. Let me tell you something about humor: there’s an old saying, “it’s funny because it’s true.” Humor doesn’t work UNLESS it’s true. Those Obama-Hillary skits on SNL the last 2 weeks wouldn’t have had the audience in stitches if they weren’t true.


    On the campaign plane from Dallas to San Antonio, Senator Barack Obama chided the reporters on board the plane today, saying they were influenced by the Clinton campaign’s flood of complaints about media bias over the last week.

    “I didn’t expect that you guys would bite on that,” Mr. Obama said.

    His remarks come after his campaign was hit with a flurry of negative headlines over the last week about the land deal involving Antonin Rezko and charges that his chief economic adviser was soft-pedaling Mr. Obama’s opposition to Nafta before Canadian government officials.

    “I am a little surprised that all the complaining about the refs has worked,” he said, using a basketball allusion to the press as referees.

  185. “I saw an articale stating that BO will release his Feb. fund raising numbers after tonight and that will help HC out of the race.”

    –I think he’d do this simply to take the media attention away from all her wins. He’s gonna try something and everything. But help her out of the race? Yeah right. I don’t care what happens today, I don’t care if ten catastrophic hurricanes suddenly hit america and we lose all electrical power and every person ages to a hundred-years-old in an instant, I think she should stay in as long as necessary as he and his cult continue to implode. Make nothing easy for these crazies.

    If she’s ever no longer around, the dumb democratic party will likely find itself without a (sane) candidate to run. But then maybe they want this. I still can’t figure out the party’s retarded behavior in backing him–masochism, cluelessness, corruption, all of these things, or what?

  186. “Let me, let me, let me, let me just be absolutely clear what happened,” Obama answered,

    Wonder if he stole THAT from Richard Nixon. 🙄

  187. Ann, that’s funny as hell. So the guy will wake up with a hangover, an ugly wife and a case of blueballs from 👿 . SWEET!

  188. OkieAtty,

    Re: your comment about not seating MI delegates……BHO (and others) VOLUNTARILY excluded their names from the MI Primary ballot. So, to exclude the MI Dem voters (not to speak of 73 HRC pledged delegates) because his name was not on the ballot, only covers for BHO’s miscalculation. If MI gets seated, HRC gets 73, and uncommitted gets 55. In addition, this would allow the MI superdelegates to be seated. Go FL! Go MI!

  189. As a Canadian, I can’t do phone calls. All I can do is applaud all of your efforts whether they be by phoning, writing, or just supporting each other. As a huge Clinton fan for many years, it is wonderful to come onto this site for up-to-the-minute updates, news links, and your special brand of humor.

    Hillary Clinton has worked like a trojan. She has defied the pundits as well as her opponent’s campaign by not going home and giving up. I am so glad that she provides another option to those of you who aren’t enamored by a man for no seasons. Keep up the good work!

    Go Hillary!

  190. “I didn’t expect that you guys would bite on that,” Mr. Obama said.

    What he means in Obamics is: “I thought you guys were too dumb to ever do that.”

  191. I just read your diary and it brought tears, sadness and anger at the way things have gone on in this primary. Now that I am hearing more of Obama’s TX caucus and other shenanigans, I am even more outraged.

    Holy Wow! Factory at Sunrise is posted now at http://www.hillaryhub.com–her official website. I am so moved by this. I never woulda guessed it in a million hears. Thank you to everyone who recommended it over at mydd. It sure did travel the web.

    If anyone missed it. http://www.mydd.com/story/2008/3/3/16235/02624

  192. Ok, someone said something about latino turnout, I then asked if they meant 50% of overall turnout or 50% of registered latinos turning out. Does anyone know? Also, is this being reported or did this person just guess?

  193. ChrisC, point well-taken…. It falls in line with the idea that FL delegates pledged to him can change their minds since he wants to take away their voice anyhow, why do they have to be loyal to him?

    The whole thing could explode into a HUGE delegate win for Hillary in Denver.

  194. Idunn, I think you made a typo, you meant to write: “I STILL don’t know a damned thing about Bushie, other than the fact that his IQ is around .98”

    :oD

  195. Just heard Hillary gave bitch Andrea Mitchell an EXCLUSIVE friggin interview.

    That bitch (not Hillary)

  196. Ok, someone said something about latino turnout, I then asked if they meant 50% of overall turnout or 50% of registered latinos turning out. Does anyone know? Also, is this being reported or did this person just guess?

    The poster was joking, MJ. What he or she actually said was, “Someone please tell me latinos count for 50% of the vote.”

    Just alittle wishful thinking on the part of the poster. 🙂

  197. hi all,

    you get the word about Obama’s dirty tricks – trying to game the TX caucus? It’s up on Taylor’s site.

  198. MJ, IT WAS A JOKE. THEY WERE ASKING FOR SOMEONE TO PLAY ALONG.

    Look, none of us want to sit here and hold your hand all day and night. Please take this suggestion as a bit of friendly advice bcause it is meant as such: Go get laid.

    A bit of nekkid time always makes me loosen up and be less anxious. That’s why I don’t do it before Court when I have to KILL, KILL, KILL. I need my killer instinct and if I’m in a good mood, I won’t be mean enough to get the job done. Election Day is different. We’re all amped up. We’re tense. It’s time for nekkid time. So in the spirit of Marvin Gaye put on some “Let’s Get It On” and shake that groove thang. 😆

    (Hell, this little speech reminds me of some beer commercial from the 70’s or 80’s about “_____time” and had some little jingle. I know it wasn’t Miller Time….Damnit. Now I’ll fixate on it all day….”)

  199. I know “Hannitized” news is like no news at all, but he caught my attention today when he said a woman connected to the Obama campaign was “caught” in the courtroom among the jury delegates. He implied this person was there to watch things for Obama. If so, that guy may be a lot more worried than anyone though. A cursory look produced no corroboration of that so far.

    I know this is too little too late, but I don’t think we really need much more at this point. Hillary will win. We will win. American will win!

    Thank you again, B. Merryfield

  200. Gawd, this is a great mailer. I love seeing Hillary on the offensive with this lying assmonkey.

  201. OkieAtty,

    My “hope” is that Rezko, NAFTAgate, and some other “bonehead moves”, erupt enough that Hill travels to Denver as the only candidate standing. Denver would just become a victory party! Of course, FL and MI get seated then!

  202. @OkieAtty

    PLEASE woman!!

    will ya issue a warning before you unleash something like this

    A bit of nekkid time always makes me loosen up and be less anxious. That’s why I don’t do it before Court when I have to KILL, KILL, KILL.

    I spewed my drink out my friggin nose!!
    now i have a wet keyboard LOL

    you are TOO much!!:):)

  203. Rather than try to follow the campaign today…Cnn is hashing up old speeches of Bill Clintons

    Scared are they? LOL

    Anyway…we know that Hillary is going to need a ton of dough starting tomorrow.

    We have to get a new money bomb afloat.

    How about it folks.

  204. Sherm, I read that same stuff elsewhere. 👿 ‘s campaign spokesperson wrote off the paid staffer being there as necessary bc of all the “request” from media.

    I say BS. I sent the story on to CNN and asked them to follow up on why a paid staffer is there at all.

    It sounds like they want not to get caught with their pants down should 👿 get stuck in an elevator with an inquiring reporter.

  205. Dot, I’m with you on the money bomb. We need to load up the choppers and the B-1’s and get ready to drop some big ones.

  206. Chris- I think it’s time to resurrect the plagiarism scandal. His credibility took a hit this last week. Strike again. Harder this time.

    Experience, you used the word “wet.” Stop that. This is a family site.

    Dot, give me a name for the bomb. I’ll have it up by poll closing time.

  207. A bit of nekkid time always makes me loosen up and be less anxious.

    You BETTER not be typing with one hand, or I’m friggin outta here!

  208. “Look, none of us want to sit here and hold your hand all day and night. Please take this suggestion as a bit of friendly advice bcause it is meant as such: Go get laid.”

    Why does MJ get all the good advice??? lol

  209. Dot- would it be wrong to call it “Operation Whoop ‘Yo Ass So Bad Your Grandbabies….No.

    Nevermind….

  210. Speaking of paid staffers. Barack Hussein Obama has to pay most of his people to work for him, but Hillary’s supporters are so dedicated, they are willing to do it for free. That says a lot as well. This is the first time in my life that I’ve been so involved with a political campaign. To travel nearly 8 hours to work a primary?! Please. We truly are a dedicated bunch and this speaks volumes about Hillary.

  211. Idunn, I don’t need hands, I’m so good.

    Ded, that advice is universal. And given with love….not “cocky” like MO where then you’ll need a shot….

  212. OkkieAtty, “Operation Whoop Yo Ass” sounds good to me. Or maybe “Whoop That Ass” would be better.

  213. How about

    “Hillary is 44”

    “Won’t Back Down”

    “Take it to the FinishLine”

    come on everyone suggest some titles.

    “Till The Last Dawg Dies”

  214. Idunn, you posted his IQ as 98. because that was the end of your sentence, but I reversed the period and number and made his IQ .98 as half a joke because that’s what I think it is–not even in the single digits. He has a fractional IQ. Bush has a 98 IQ? In his dreams is it that high!

    But I have heard people report it at 98–you’re right about that number being used.

  215. “Help is on the Way”

    Didn’t Bush use that? LOL

    Operation Whoop Ass sounds might good .. but would we offend some elderly ladies with that?

  216. ” You’re so vain ”

    ” Fist City ”

    ” Beat It On Down The Line ”

    ” The Race Is On ”

    ” Everybody’s Got Something To Hide ‘Cept For Me And My Monkey ”

    🙂

  217. But I have heard people report it at 98–you’re right about that number being used.

    For real?? Damn, mines 135 , and I’m not even all that bright. 😯

  218. “I didn’t expect that you guys would bite on that,” Mr. Obama said.”

    That is pretty arrogant…someone who feels he can manipulate the press like that. I hope they don’t fall for it.

  219. Good afternoon, Hillfans. Sherm, you give moi too much credit. It’s H44’s fault that RezkoWatch was born. Now look what ya’ll got me into!

    rezkowatch.blogspot.com – just h t t p – it

  220. We need to come up with a special category title for that oh-so-lovely brand of Bush brainlessness, like the Fried By Modern Chemicals Brain IQ, and his level is the low cut-off point.

  221. I actually despise that Hillary even talked to Andrea Mitchell. We MUST let the campaign know that Andrea Mitchell has been in the cheerleading line for Obama.

    I know it is air time but still…I loate that bitch (Andrea Witchell)

  222. Experience, oh shit. I am laughing so hard that I am coughing. It even sounds like whooping cough. LOL.

    Idunn, mine is bigger.

  223. How about:

    “Operation We Can’t Have That”

    “Operation We Ain’t Havin’ It”

    “Operation We Ain’t Hearin’ It”

    “Operation Stop Lyin’!!!”

  224. Yeah, Idunn, I do remember hearing that specific number used for him–was it just a coincidence or am I losing my mind (or maybe both lol)?

  225. Rhode Island…heavy, heavy turnout. Woman says she decided at last minute..Hillary and a lot to do with how the media has trompled on Hillary

    Vermont … oh, god does everybody in Vt (men) look like Howard Dean. Steady stream according to DNN. DumbNewsNetwork

  226. Idunn, mine is bigger.

    That’s why you’re a slimy lawyer, and I’m just a poor old, salt of the earth, organic farmer. 😉

  227. Idunn, mine is bigger

    Is it as big as a hat???

    (lol…I missed the chance to nail this on the first post.)

  228. I just read that the newspaper, The Toledo Blade, endorsed Obama because Hillary stole furniture from the White House when she lived there. I tried to find a website to see if I could get an e-mail to the editor to assure him that the Clintons did not steal anything from the White House when they left. Can someone out there in Ohio help me.

  229. Wonkette: Get Barry Fifty Nicotine Patches RIGHT NOW, He’s Gonna Lose It!

    Never in his life has Barack Obama needed a cigarette more. What with Tony Rezko being on trial, his advisers telling Canada that his NAFTA support is a lie, and the media asking him questions about all of this stuff, Barry is getting mighty testy and could sob any minute. Is Barack the new Hillary? The evidence is leaning that way today, as he too is chiding the media for being mean to him.

    He spoke with reporters in Texas today, testily, and asked why they would listen to anything Hillary Clinton says:

    “Look, they have run a pretty negative campaign over the last several weeks,” he said. “I have said we would do things differently. I am not going to do things I am not comfortable with. I want to make sure we stay focused on the issues.

    “I am a little surprised that all the complaining about the refs has actually worked as well as it has for them,” he added. “This whole spin that the press is being so tough of them and not tough on us. I just didn’t expect you guys would bite on that.”
    Aww, does baby miss being the pwecious media Messiah? Did it hurt when they turned on him in order to keep Hillary alive, because she sells more papers and hasn’t yet been milked dry? Barry, we thought you had gotten over the whining after South Carolina. It’s not beneath you to answer dumb questions. Just smile pretty and she’ll be gone soon.

    wonkette.com/363745/get-barry-fifty-nicotine-patches-right-now-or-hes-gonna-lose-it

  230. If the Toledo Blade wrote that, screw them for being so fugging stupid. Let them find it themselves.

  231. I just read that the newspaper, The Toledo Blade, endorsed Obama because Hillary stole furniture from the White House when she lived there.

    Gimme a break,,,,what did she take, a pen? Obama probably stole an ashtray and the towels, and the maid…. wanker!!

  232. “I just read that the newspaper, The Toledo Blade, endorsed Obama because Hillary stole furniture from the White House when she lived there.”

    –Oh for chrissake, what will these witch-burning nutcases think up next?

  233. Irish…the items in question were donated to the white house in 1993 (I think). Those items were taken by the Clintons because someone they were listed as gifts to them, instead of gifts to the WH. The items were returned when the screw up was discovered.

  234. B.Merryfield: BO is arrogant, arrogant, a hypocrite, and a dirty politician. His campaign has been very dirty ie misleading mailers, copying her plans for the economy, NAFTA-GATE, Rezko, lying to the people that her health plan will garnish people’s wages, and the list goes on and on. He seriously thinks, the media has been more positive of Hillary??? On what planet???

  236. I love Wonkette. This story rocks my box:

    THE BAD NEWS CONTINUES for Barack Obama. An anonymous operative writes from his strange “Obama/GOP” part of Texas:

    Heavily Obama/GOP district in Texas. Lazy voters parked on street marked “no parking” instead of using the parking lot behind the school. When the cop arrived to ticket and tow, all the Obama supporters came scurrying out to move their cars, costing them another 1-2 hours in line to vote. Haha.

    Barack Obama is now delaying the vote in Texas. Does this mean he’ll finally denounce Louis Farrakhan?

  237. Here’s some Texas info I’m getting from this link: w w w.rightpundits.com/?p=1167. This page appears to be pro-bambi. Nevertheless, there’s some encouraging info for Hillary in here, especially as the day has worn on…

    Texas exit poll data:

    (March 4th, 2008.)

    12.25 EST: See report below, McCain supporters crossing over to “defeat Hillary today”. Will other Republicans who want to run against Hillary cancel the Houston crossovers out? One thing is certain, there are Republicans crossing over and meddling in the Dem. Primary, whether they’ll caucus is yet to be seen. Stay tuned.

    12.15 EST Update: I just got an odd report from someone in the Texas Hillary camp. She’s supposedly running better than expected around Dallas, which is surprising as that’s a heavily black area. When I asked what “better than expected” meant, she said 5-7 points higher. Can anyone decipher this? Does this mean that Hillary is only losing the Black vote 85-15 instead of 90-10??? Does that even matter? I’ll wait for more data as this gal has been off once before, but she sounded kind of excited. She also said Hillary is “cleaning up” in West Texas, which begged the question, Is there anything to “clean up” in West Texas?

    12.25 EST Update: Contrary to reports that Republicans are supporting Hillary, I just got another solid report from a Republican organizer (someone in the know) that Republicans in the suburbs south of Houston are making a concerted effort to defeat Hillary now. “We figure we might as well just beat her now so there is no chance she wins in November”. According to Blake, They have organized a somewhat successful Republican get out the vote effort with the battle cry “defeat Hillary today”. He also said that a majority of these voters are McCain supporters. Which makes one wonder what effect, if any, will the crossover vote have on McCain’s margin of victory in Texas. I doubt many of these Republicans will also caucus, they hate Hillary, but not enough to miss dinner to defeat her.

    12.45 EST Update: Rush Limbaugh, who has recently been urging Republicans to vote for Hillary so she can “bloody up” Obama some more, is out sick and not on the air today. A talker our of Dallas is sitting in for him.

    2 EST Update: FIRST WAVE. These numbers aren’t statewide but a good cross-section. You aren’t going to get our head to head numbers yet as we want to be conservative and make sure they are right, but as Rightpundits told you earlier, the crossover (Republicans meddling in the Dems affairs) is huge. Despite heavy heavy turnout, the crossover vote is still making up somewhere between 5%-8% of the Democratic vote. The crossover vote is coming from the older republican crowd. Of course, one can assume Republicans are really liking the “Rockstar” candidate, but you’d be kidding yourself, these are McCain voters in the general. Here’s another tidbit, about 10% of the Dem primary voters have NEVER voted before and a little more than half have never voted in a primary. Be weary of this first wave of polling if it is reported by other sites, in my opinion, something is messed up with the African-American turnout. Either they all slept in or they didn’t show up. I can’t believe either of those and suspect they are somehow undereported. In other words, Obama’s base (black voters) is definitely going to turn out and the numbers aren’t right.

    2.41pm – It really does appear that Hillary is exceeding expectations in the early data. As we always caution, take first waves as they are meant to be, which is a pile of data that has not been properly normalized for known demographics. More in a minute.

    3pm – New reports of Obama cheating the caucus system on election day. This story will rage tonight.

    3.02 – More on the caucus… remember that ANYONE who voted in the Democrat primary is eligible for the Democrat caucus. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that means thousands of Republicans attempting to manipulate the election will be eligible if they want to take the time. Something tells me that this time, the Democrats will not want to make sure every vote is counted. The media coverage of this mess is going to give the Texas election system a black eye.

    3.24 EST – The Obama campaign is preparing it’s surrogates to claim the delegate count on a national scale, and why Clinton, even after doing well in Texas and Ohio, still can’t catch Obama in the delegate count, and that Obama is still the delegate leader and has won the vast majority of the last dozen states. They are also going to downplay Ohio and try to build up delegate count in Texas as opposed to popular vote. I don’t know if this is just worst case scenario planning on Obama’s behalf or a tip of the hand at what their internals are showing.

    3.50 EST – Turnout is much higher than any previous primary, but turnout is LOWER than all the pundits were predicting. Most pundits and those in the know thought turnout would exceed 3 million, some even suggesting it would be closer to 3.5 million. Absent a huge surge this evening, the predictions seem to be off. Young African American turnout is 1/3 lower than expected, maybe they’ll show up in the final wave??

    4.15 EST – Rumors a swirling that some Obama supporters are not voting in the primary and instead are going to turnout in force at the caucus tonight at 7:15 since Obama is supposed to “do well” in the caucus. The only problem with that line of thinking is that those who didn’t vote in the Dem. primary can’t caucus. Somebody better get that word out to the Obama ground game!

    4.30 EST – Mood in Obama camp shifting to subdued. They are lowering expectations this afternoon and talking about the next contests like Hillary did in past days. Obama: “We closed the gap, but you know whether it’s going to be enough to actually win is going to depend on turnout. We know there’s not going to be a huge shift in delegates one way or another — just given the math. Which means that either way we will go to Mississippi or Wyoming next week.”

  238. OMG love this Wonkette comment from the nicotine thread

    “Yeah… I like you Barry and I want to continue to do so, so have a tall glass of shut the fuck up and let that happen.

    Thanks.”

    I’m so stealing that ‘tall glass of STFU’ line.

  239. okie, thank you. I so need to laugh some more today. I’ve called Texas till I’m ready to have my phone disconnected. Emory, Texas..I….never….want…..to……see……that…..name…..again.

    I switched off Donna Brazil’s fat ass

  240. Rumors a swirling that some Obama supporters are not voting in the primary and instead are going to turnout in force at the caucus tonight at 7:15 since Obama is supposed to “do well” in the caucus. The only problem with that line of thinking is that those who didn’t vote in the Dem. primary can’t caucus. Somebody better get that word out to the Obama ground game!

    ROTFLMFAO!!!!!!!!!

  241. What???? What did I do????

    A girl just minds her own business, being herself and she gets called out for it. That’s just not right. I didn’t think you guys would bite.

    (Now doing most indignant 👿 face and looking for a nicotine patch)

  242. Levon, good post! I love it – at 4:30 mood in the Obama camp is subdued. I’m gonna leap high in the air if we are able to subdue that bastard today.

  243. News flash: Hillary wins Ohio. An exit poll conducted this morning at 2 precincts in NE Ohio shows Hillary taking 92% of the Democratic vote. Of 84 Dem voters who responded, 78 said they voted for Hillary and only 6 voted for Barack. Now on to the White House!

  244. Dot- “I switched off Donna Brazil’s fat ass”

    Was it blinking, honking or vibrating again?

  245. NO if’s ands or buts,

    no doubts, waffling or maybe’s

    no second guessing, no apprehension

    HILLARY WILL WIN

    NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESS AND NOTHING ELSE

  246. ok. ok. I have called and called and called. I am freaking out here. I want the results. But I am nevous too. Jeeeze. I have never worked so hard in a political campaign. I wish I clould get on my broomstick and fly down to Texas and carry people to the polls 🙂 Then I’d go on up to Ohio too. PM thanks for your comments. I think I have to go for a walk. This is fucking nerve wracking. And I have a hair trigger at this point. No obamabot beter cross my path–and I live in a very christian right part of southern california. Shit. Maybe I better just stay inside. I have a hillary sticker on my car and yesterday some obambots tried to give me some grief. I grew up on the freeway and I am a terror behind the wheel. They were the ones who slammed on their brakes. LOL. Bastards. Does anyone have any exit polls? Any news at all?

  247. birdgal at 4:42, it’s just the same-old pot-calling-the-kettle-black projection (also, maybe he thinks “claiming a media bias worked for Hillary, so it can work for me!” but, duh, it “worked” for her because the media bias is REAL, is the TRUTH). Again, I think the republicans regularly did this to the democrats whenever Bush screwed up, behaved like a petty little dictator, etc. They pushed whatever he was doing onto the democrats and the democratic party, whatever failure or complaint came up–it was the democrat’s fault, Bill Clinton especially was responsible. It’s a common change-the-subject tactic fallacious arguers use: by changing the subject of the claims to the other person, this deflects away from the person being criticized.

    Obama’s learned well from his republican idols.

    And this part someone posted above:

    “He spoke with reporters in Texas today, testily, and asked why they would listen to anything Hillary Clinton says”

    –Um, schmuckobama, Clinton hasn’t only made indications of the media bias. SHE DIDN’T START THAT BEING MENTIONED. There was no need for her too. The bias has been very obvious and has long been discussed, since long before she and her campaign pointed it out and since long before you were a media creation, the bias goes waaaay back to years ago. It has gotten even worse now that she’s poised to attain even more power. Independent media watching organizations have also noted and documented the heavy pro-Obama bias and the heavy anti-Clinton bias, both from a sexism angle and from a general angle.

  248. Independent Ben:

    You’re very welcome! I liked that wording too. I’m not sure where the info is coming from or how valid it is though. I just googled ‘texas early exit polls 2008’ and found this site.

  249. Linfair, those Obamadroids are CRAZY on the highway. lol I was in a streetrace with one on Sunday, going about 80 in a 35 mile an hour zone!!

  250. I think the women on Fox really respect Hillary Clinton and they are leaning her way.

    Pennsylvania with the Rendell machine will go Hillary!!! We will still need to fight for every vote there. We will need massive money bombs, phone banks (oh god .. just one day off please), blogs, emails, and the whole Big Pink Machine.

  251. How about money bomb:

    “Ain’t no stopping us now.”

    “Big Girls don’t cry.”

    “Weasel face.”

  252. Alright, let me go to the gym so that I can work off some of this steam and then head home to get ready to celebrate!

  253. Howard Dean met with Reid and Pelosi about a STOP date for the PRIMARY>

    FUCK HIM and Pelosi and Reid

  254. As has already been suggested many times, can’t the campaign put up a paypal link for donating? Is that not allowed? I’ve had to send mine in through the mail, which takes more time. I can’t get my computer to open most of her site’s pages–the contribution page is one I can’t open.

  255. My stomach has been in knots, yearning for this day to be over with! Everytime I think of Obama securing the nomination it makes me physically ill and who knows, my mental health may be in question as well, but the passion in this election is very real on both sides of the coin I can attest. One thing that gets me stressed is that people I know who voted for Obama now wish they could’ve gone for Hillary. I have always believed in my candidate, met Chelsea who answered questions with ease and maturity, and have also met Obama supporters who have been so incredibally rude that has set me over the edge. I have donated more than I expected to Hillary, and I guess things are out of my hands when it boils down to it, nothing I can do can quell the majority’s thinking. GRRRRR Please pray for me if this night doesn’t turn things around. Peace to all of you.

  256. matthews now saying Hillary campaign “Brilliant”

    He is going to cream his jeans….for Hillary.

  257. dot48

    Howard Dean met with Reid and Pelosi about a STOP date for the PRIMARY>

    FUCK HIM and Pelosi and Reid

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>
    Oh no he didn’t!!!
    are you serious?? where did you see this!!
    I’ll fly over and find his sorry arse!!

  258. dot, that’s disgusting. He gets a thrill, you get a thrill, he creams….

    This is just wrong. I hope you guys are using protection in your little romantic trysts. Or at least have a large supply of dirty socks handy. :mrgreen:

  259. Hillary team needs to call Matthews OUT now. He just now said Hillary “hiccuped” on the question of Obama being a Muslim>>>>>>>>>>

    I’m sending this right now… It is on MSNBC right now.

  260. Howard Dean says no need to rush into a nominee….

    Wow, what does he know now that he didn’t know last week.

  261. A STOP date for the primary?

    Which means I guess that the states after that date can go Cheney themselves.

    What is with these so-called “Democrats”???

  262. LMAO @ HRC shoving the reporters in with the urinals!

    Can say our girl doesn’t have a wicked sense of humor. 😉

  263. dot, I heard him say that. Could Dean be having buyer’s remorse about his golden boy?

  264. jithendra, thank you, thank you, linfar bows 🙂

    Levon that cross over voting ripoff of Obama’s just frosts the shit out of me. I have posted on it and posted on it. I don’t understand why Hillary doesn’t call him on it?

    Sugar, I bet you are wild in the car. But I am like a race car driver. And I have a record to maintain. I have never backed down from a vehiclular confrontation 🙂 Nobody will drive with me though 🙂 haha just kidding.

    It is a little after 2 pm here. I am the only person on the west coast?

  265. Howard Dean says no need to rush into a nominee

    He’s like the two faced mayor in Nightmare Before Christmas! LOL!

  266. “Howard Dean met with Reid and Pelosi about a STOP date for the PRIMARY>”

    –The american people can’t let that happen! This is OUR election, not THEIRS.

    That’s one thing I’ve been really afraid of: they seem to want him really bad, so they might do everything they can to squeeze her out. No matter what she wins, they’ll find some way to take the nomination away from her.

    …But giving them the benefit of the doubt for a second, it’s possible I and others are mistaken on this, it’s possible that the Dems may be regretting having turned Obama into a monster, and they will cut him loose soon. But they’ve been hesitating because they seem to think he’s very popular (why they think this is beyond me when she keeps pulling in most of the votes from democrats) and don’t want to demoralize many voters, and they also don’t want to be bitten with things like the “you’re a racist” charge. In that sense, they may think cutting her loose would be easier than cutting him loose. But I say: all the MORE reason to cut this nut loose now, BEFORE he has the powers of the presidency, which would shield him even more from criticism, given that he’s campaigned like a Bush so he’d probably “govern” like one too, which governing would be: no criticism, no dissent.

  267. @pulchritude

    great work buddy.. keep going make it to 1000 before the close of calls… cool cool

  268. No. No. I know I am not the only person on the west coast. I meant on this list? I am really whacky. Ok. Time to take my Mom to the library. Soemthing to do. I hope you all have the exit polls when I come back… Bad to the Bone exits

  269. Dean is just hedging his bets. Maybe he finally got the memo that 👿 is a liar, liar, pants on fire. And that Brazile isn’t doing him or the DNC any favors by pissing off Dems so they lose FL and the DNC goes broke when they need cash for the down ticket races. 👿 would call it “boneheaded.” I’d agree is bone means dick.

  270. linfar:

    I think Hillary doesn’t call him on the cross-over voting because it emphasizes the perception of how unpopular she is with republicans.

  271. Howard Dean on CNN talking about Party Unity and having a nominee before the convention…blah. Howard is sweating like a pig roasting over a fire…What an idiot!!

  272. Levon, but this whole Democrat For A Day deal. This proves that Obama is not actually expanding the base of the Democratic Party.

  273. well, dean is definitely bipolar. swtched to cnn and he is a bit off the “no need to rush”

    on cnn he says, “wish we could get a nominee sooner than the convention”

    bonyass Pelosis and spineless reid should not be making any decisions … they can’t get shit done in the jobs we friggin gave em in 06. No doubt about it…the congress and senate will go back to gop next time around.

  274. Pulch…did you have Karen Hughes name LOL someone from our campaign called her. Where does she live?

  275. What good are these mediocre-ass people? They make me want to throw up. No wonder this country’s on the verge of collapse. Look at the quality of the people who are supposed to be “in charge.”

    Ancient Rome, here we also come to The Fall if these mediocre people continue making the decisions here!

  276. friggin cnn keeps saying they are going to give exit poll numbers…the bastards. I swear I am going to go hurt Wolf Ass Blister.

    I guess I will go call some more to Emory, Texas LOL

    Pulch, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

  277. Hillary is rebounding nationally. this is from Todd Beeton at Mydd:

    Interesting. According to the two daily national tracking polls, Hillary Clinton’s rebound is not unique to Texas and Ohio.

    Gallup 3/1-3:

    Clinton 45 (43, 42, 43, 42, 43)
    Obama 45 (48, 50, 49, 49, 48)

    From Gallup’s analysis:

    This is based on tracking interviewing conducted March 1-3. A strong night for Clinton last night allowed her to erase the lead Obama had held the previous six days. Obama’s lead had been as large as eight percentage points — 50% to 42% in Feb. 28-March 1 polling. Tonight’s primaries in four states are critical to the future of the Clinton campaign, as she looks to win a contest for the first time since Super Tuesday.

    Rasmussen 2/29-3/3:

    Clinton 46 (45, 44, 43, 42, 40)
    Obama 44 (44, 44, 45, 47, 49)

    From the Rasmussen analysis:

    Clinton now holds a two-point edge over Obama, 46% to 44%. Prior to these past two days, Clinton had trailed every day for three weeks (see recent daily results). Clinton’s modest rebound nationally corresponds to a similar rebound in late polling for the key states of Ohio and Texas.

    This trend contrasts with the new ABC News/WaPo poll, which shows Obama leading Clinton nationally 50-43%, although the polling period was slightly earlier than the tracking polls (2/28-3/2) so didn’t pick up the Monday surge for Clinton that the tracking polls apparently found.

    Interestingly, even with this 7 point lead for Obama, voters polled by ABC/WaPo felt overwhelmingly that Hillary Clinton should stay in the race even if she wins just one of the big states at stake tonight.

    Two-thirds of Democrats say a victory in either Ohio or Texas would be reason enough for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) to keep her historic bid for the party’s presidential nomination alive, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

    Two losses, however, would dramatically change the equation. Only 29 percent of Democrats said Clinton should drop out if she loses one of the two big states, but that number jumps to 51 percent if she loses both.

    In other words, the “drop out Hillary” caucus is losing the message war and after tonight, if Hillary does win popular votes in both Texas and Ohio, expect the Clinton camp to make the case that the wins are a mandate to fight on.

  278. Independent Ben:

    I agree, it’s not good for the dems to let repugs have a say in determining their nominee and does not indicate a broadening of the party. I just think that if Hillar’s campaign brings up the issue, that’s the argument that bambi’s camp would make.

    Not sure if her campaign has ever brought up this issue before? If not, then I’m guessing that’s the reason why, but it’s only my humble opinion 🙂

  279. God, every time I catch up with you people, something happens and when I return, I have MANY posts to get through….. sheesh, 🙂 and now I am all caught up, and guess what!???! I have to walk the dog!!! grrrr…..

    oh well, maybe good, something to distract me, as I really am just in a euphoric state now, wanting to trust my feelings that tell me everything will be alright, and fearing to trust my feelings in fear of disappointment….

    well, maybe I shall try my NH technique! *Dare to believe*!!!!!!!!! Yes, that worked great! I will, I WILL dare to believe!! Go girl!!!!

  280. Levon, I can see that. But it must gall to see her the way Obama has used it to get the repugs to become dems for a day to vote against her.

  281. Dot, Karen Hughes of the Bush administration? No shit. Someone called KH, a soccer mom Republican?

  282. “oh well, maybe good, something to distract me, as I really am just in a euphoric state now, wanting to trust my feelings that tell me everything will be alright, and fearing to trust my feelings in fear of disappointment….”

    –That’s an excellent exact description of the way I’ve been feeling too–I bet lots of people here have been!

  283. Sounds like Chris Matthews is up to his tired old tricks again. Time to fire off an email to MSNBC….

  284. pulchritude

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all your hard work!!

    You have done an outstanding job on this campaign and all Hillary supporters salute you! 🙂

  285. Yes Fran, I’m glad I’m not alone, I know we must all be in a state of …’something’ , 🙂

    ok, heading out into the cold night, be back soon (I hope, that darn dog takes for ever to decide on where to pee, as if it MATTERS!!!!) 😉

  286. Clinton and Obama in dead heat here
    Jason Hawk | The Chronicle-Telegram

    With more than five hours left until polls close, Lorain County voters seem to be keeping Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in a dead heat.

    In unscientific exit polling, an even number of voters so far have told The Chronicle that they support each senator.

    Mary Phillips, 47, of Lorain, was one of several who is aligning with Obama.

    “People say we’re taking a chance on him, but I’m willing to take that chance,” she said while heading to vote at the Black River Landing in Lorain. “I just don’t want one more political person in there. Barack Obama is in politics, but he isn’t playing politics.”

    Mike Bott, 48, of Elyria, said he cast his ballot in favor of Clinton at the Elyria Public Library.

    “She has experience and backing from Bill Clinton,” he said. “I think she’s the one who’s more qualified.”

    The Democratic presidential primary is so close that even some families are split. Rosie and Joe Kovach of Amherst said they’ve been married 48 years – and while Rosie cast her vote for Obama, Joe voted for Clinton.

    Meanwhile, Republican voters seem few and far between.

    Kurby Perrigan, 54, of Amherst, said he braved the freezing rain and miserably low temperatures to show support for Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.

    “I thought about whether I was wasting my vote because he has so little support in Ohio, but I figured that if everybody thought like that then he wouldn’t get any votes at all,” Perrigan said.

    None of the voters interviewed early Tuesday had any problems with either optical scan or touch-screen voting systems.

    The National Weather Service is predicting that sleet and snow will intensify as the day wears on and there are a flood watch and a winter weather advisory through midnight.

    According to the Associated Press, three precincts in Steubenville were moved early in the day because of flooding concerns. Voters were redirected to polling places on higher ground.

    The weather hasn’t seemed to slow down voters in Lorain County, though, said Anthony Morano, 19, of Lorain. During the morning rush hour, about 200 cars swarmed over the Knights of Columbus in Lorain and created long lines, he said.

    Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner predicted as many as 4 million voters would go to the polls today – though Oberlin College professor of politics Michael Parkin said Monday that bad weather typically keeps many voters indoors.

    As many as one in five voters tried to beat today’s winter weather by casting early ballots, Brunner said.

  287. I’m not even an political professional and I know more about this country then the fcuking DNC and Howard Dean…is amateur hour…geeesh

    Obama will not carry California…and let me say this Nancy Pelosi don’t run shit in California…she a fundraiser. The power is not in the Northern California. SoCal runs Cali and you better believe it…DRIVER LICENCE for ILLEGALS got Dem Gov. Grey Davis booted out of his office quicker then bye-bye.

  288. About darkening that photo. Fox is quoting some obamabot at dkos.

    But you can bet Obama campaign is trying to play the race card again. Whenever Obama gets in trouble the ole race card gets played. And the media bites the hookie each and every time.

  289. Uh, oh….Spaghetti-o’s per Talkleft.com.

    “Flooding is such a problem in Southern Ohio that at the request of the Secretary of State, the courts have issued orders allowing voters to cast provisional ballots at their county board of elections. Here is the order for Perry County (pdf)and here is the one for Adams County. (pdf)

    Buckeye State Blog is tracking the orders. I agree that this could result in lower voter turnout which would hurt Hillary who is favored in Southeast Ohio. (Bill Clinton carried these counties in the 1992 and 1996 general election, which resulted in his winning Ohio, while Gore and Kerry did not and lost Ohio in the general election.

    Obama could be adversely affected by such an order in Athens county, home to Ohio University and it’s tens of thousands of students.

    Hopefully the candidates’ ground operations are prepared for this and have volunteers with vehicles to get people to the polls.

    The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports lots of Republicans are voting in the Democratic primary.”

  290. The real stalwart for Hillary in California is Feinstein and she is hanging tough for the next President 🙂 Pelosi is another whole kettle of fish.

  291. I listened to most of Laura Ingrahm show today and she proclaimed it ‘Hillary Day’ today on her show. She said that she was driving the Hillary Express. She had many, many people call in today to say that they crossed over and voted for Hill. Most of them were males from TX, a few from OH and several women from TX.

    She was really, really pushing this. She has the 3rd most popular right wing talk show. I hope that her and Rush’s push cancels out the Repubs who cross over for Bambi.

  292. CNN exit polls
    Obama 83% of black, Hillary 64% of Latino.
    Obama 64% of 20-29, Hillary 67% of 60+

  293. Guys, those exit poll numbers do not look very good…I was hoping she could carry more of the Latino vote and a higher proportion of the youth vote…if the polls are really as tight as they seemed yesterday, someone on this thread was saying he would just need to break 60-40 with the youth vote to win and it seems like he is doing that….

  294. That being said, the exit poll numbers have often been wrong…just remember Super Tuesday…people were FREAKING OUT because it looked like she had lost NJ, CA, and a bunch of other states that she won…so….

  295. I love this site.

    We have multiple (pun intended) women putting ‘cocky’ in quotes; Okie is talking about nekkid time and the double entendres are everywhere, in a very good way. Spring has sprung.

    AND we get to talk politics and about the patheticness of Bambi.

    I feel like I’m back in college having one of those ‘perfect convergence’ moments of sports and, um, nekkid time. 😉

    If Hillary can hold her own in heavily-AA east Texas then things could turn out well for her.

    What so damn many of the Bambi acolytes (and Sir Deer himself) don’t realize is the depth and breadth of the antipathy towards Hillary both in the GOP and the general media. Dude actually thinks people are fawning on him just for him, and not to try to hurt HRC. Even though Rush has been hammering the ‘vote for Hillary’ theme, the GOPers are so trained to try to hurt Hillary that they just can’t stop going all “What’s the Matter with Kansas?” on themselves and actually vote to try to keep the Dem contest going. Nope — they have to try to take the Clintons down no matter what.

    If Odrama actually were to win the nomination (and let’s pray he does not), he has no idea the level of vitriol and swiftboating which awaits him. Nor do his political ‘new jack’ supporters. They all collectively feel like they invented politics and that there is some kind of magic force field which will shield Bambi from legit scrutiny all the way to the White House in a wave of rich whites who want to be over their guilt complexes resulting from the disgusting history of this nation.

    Newsflash: NOT HAPPENING.

    Barack, if he wins, is going to get his ass swiftboated in a way which he is not ready for. I mean kid is about to start crying over Rezko questions; what is he going to do when the GOP goes Willie Horton, Harold Ford and 2000 South Carolina John McCain on him?

    Plus, by now most have seen the polls showing that a good chunk of Dems will NOT vote for Obama if he is the nominee. So much for the bullspit “her voters will vote for me but mine won’t vote for her” crap.

    ‘Bama — you’ve taken this whole ‘dual standard race card’ BS campaign as far as you can. And who knows,
    our Party (well, actually our Party + a lot of jag-off GOPers and malicious Indys) might be stupid enough to give you the nom. Whoop-de-do.

    Here’s what happens if that is the case: Obama gets his electoral ass kicked in November, and the swiftboating, Rezkoing and foot-in-mouth disease of the Obamas and their POS race-baiting surrogates ends up destroying Odrama’s presidential ambitions forever. Don’t worry, Mich, you won’t have to endure
    another presidential run you keep saying won’t happen because you and hubby’s luster will be well worn by then. Hill runs again in 2012 against either Mac or whoever replaces him when he decides to retire after serving his first term out.

    Between now and 2012, the joke known as the Dem Primaries is reformed completely. No more GOP crossover BS. Same with Indys. Closed proportional primaries are all that is left, essentially, and this time HRC cruises to the nom.

    Obama tinfoil hat wearers — your moment is about to
    end, so soak it up while you can. You and your ‘bargainer’ (Shelby Steele’s term) chump vassal are about to return to Earth at terminal velocity, one way
    or another. Many, many Dems are seriously pissed off with your garbage Jesse Jackson, Jr-led tactics, and there is going to be Hell to pay, that you can count on. The Jim Jones Kool-Aid convention is about to end, and not a moment too soon.

    Hoping for some good returns tonight.

  296. I saw the flooding on Fox news around 3pm. it looked bad.

    Tweetie called HRC campaign brilliant??????? When? i gotta HEAR that to believe it!

    I can’t watch much of the tube – too nervous – so I’m checking here every hour or so. (I can’t watch monster movies, either.)

    pulchitrude and those on the ground – Outstanding job and thanks for being on the front lines. I can’t wait to get stronger so i can do more, too. (besides letters and money).

  297. Oh shit. Obama darkened his own ads online- tpmelectioncentral.talkingpointsmemo.com/2008/03/obama_chides_press_for_swallow.php

    Watch the top as it flashes. Someone please send to FOX ASAP.

  298. I don’t put much stock into exit polls. Sometimes they are right and sometimes they are dead wrong, remember ST.

    If they are right, I would have thought he would carry AA by 87-90%. We don’t know what % the youth vote is made up off so no inferences can be made. We expected Latino vote to be 2-1. We need to look at the % as related to the pool of dems who vote.

    2004 elections. AA were 21%, Latinos were 24%
    Hillary would be in good shape if that # were closer to 30%. I’ve seen projections of AA up to 24% which would be a big increase but if Hill can get the Latino vote up to 27-32%, it offsets.

    We also need to see how women are voting and if she has indeed closed the men gap. I’m hoping that many of the Katrina people didn’t register.

    I have to go to work now, bummber, Pray, call, call, call TX.

  299. Encouraging article about HRC’s Mo and Bo’s slo..

  300. basil, everyone contributes in their own way. do not feel pressured to do more until or unless you are ready

  301. Guys, please don’t quote exit polls yet…especially from CNN or MSNBC they will slant those polls to stop late voting or caucus….just don’t do it.

    It doesn’t benefit anybody but OBAMA!
    ****************************************************
    Universal, u forgot to mention getting rid of Caucuses, it doesn’t help the dems in the GE and only give false positives.

  302. i will try. i wish others would join me.

    Pulchritude, I call every single day. It’s just part of my afternoon routine.

  303. Dot, Thanks Dot. by the end of April I should be ready for some skirmishes 🙂

    CJ,

    i haven’t been able to do anything today – can’t concentrate – I’m just hoping like he!! that Hil’s staff has the Hail Mary Pass strategy down!

    And count me in, dot for tomorrow’s money bomb.

  304. I’m not sure why everyone is down about these exit polling numbers from CNN:

    >Obama 83% of black, Hillary 64% of Latino.

    The 83% of aa’s for bambi is actually lower than in some of the other states, which have approached 90%. And 64% of Latino’s is strong by any measure (except for the unprecedented support bambi gets from aa’s).

    What’s important are the SIZE of these voting blocks. If aa’s come in around 20%, then that’s a pretty good margin for him, but it only gives him about 16.6% of the overall vote, and he would have to make up the remaining from white and Latino votes For him to get 50% of the vote, he would need to gain another 33.4 % from the remaining 80% of the vote, which means he would need to win 41.75% of white and Latino votes combined.

  305. To affect the voting and TX caucuses. Ignore the media let the voters vote and don’t look at the exit polls…remember they want Clinton to bow out so that the “Annoited” one can claim party unity and SAVE Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid Asses for this “anybody but Hillary Clinton” Primary.

    I’am so disgusted with my party right now.

  306. I fondly remember early exit polls had hillary losing or doing bad in NY and then the state got called as son as the polls close.

    I concur. NO EXIT POLLS and no handwringing! ::puts protective bubble around site::

  307. Dean and crew have become like a walking-talking bunch of emetics. I only need hear their names and up goes my last meal!

  308. At the very least, if some of you insist on posting about exit polls, at least give a warning at the top of your post so I can skip them, please.

    Thanks.

  309. carbynew — you’re right, I should have been more explicit about the need to end caucuses. I said that I felt that everything would, essentially, end up as closed proportional primaries (I think I said that), but I should have mentioned just how bleeping destructive caucuses are and how, as you said, they do give ‘false positives.’ They don’t represent jack.

    Good point. 🙂

  310. Wow, Odrama is getting 83% of the AA vote. Just imagine how high that number would be if someone from Odrama’s camp said something asinine like Hillary didn’t cry in public after Katrina.

    🙁

  311. TEXAS exit poll from FOX news

    late deciders for clinton 66 – 34
    hispanics – 64 – 35 hispanics turn out is 33%…
    women – 56 – 44

    OHIO exit poll from FOX news
    hillary is leading in all demographics

    UNION households – 56 – 42

  312. from HillaryClintonForum:

    The dirty tricks are happening. Spread the words. Stay alert.!

    Reports of at least 10 instances of signing in people using Caucus Signup Sheets (Actual name is Exhibit A: Precinct Convention Sign-in Sheet) have been reported. The Texas Democratic party is aware of this illegal tactic to stuff the ballot box. People are not allowed to sign these sheets UNTIL the caucus is convened, and that will NOT start until 7:15 p.m. this evening.

    John Oeffinger has asked that Texas volunteers be vigilant. Hillary tables are for signing in people by getting their names only, but please attempt to verify that this is ALL the Obama people are doing as well. Report any incident as soon as you discover it.

    The violations are all suspected of being from the Obama campaign.

  313. OKAY back to naming money bomb.

    I think you should go with Weasel Face because it’s a title to a Ramone song…in which the lyric include this verse:

    “Ain’t no loser or quitter, it’s all or nothing, baby.”

  314. they got 5 hours or so for texas to vote yet,ya got beef plants yet to get off work..horsetraders, cattle ranchers ,stockyards,

  315. jithendra:

    those are some GREAT numbers if true. Latino turnout of 33%?? woo hoo!! I would have thought she would do better in the women demographic though. maybe a significant # of repub/independent women voted 🙁

  316. Hello everyone, I was out of town for a couple of days travelling. While driving back from the airport, I was listening to Sean Hannity on the radio. Several republican callers to his show from Texas said they crossed-over and voted for Hillary.

    Nice to see finally that the media maybe waking up in scrutinizing Obama.

    March is the beer-track month. It is Hillary time. I am confident Hillary will do very well tonight.

  317. jithendra please don’t post EXIT POLLS here, because we don’t trust the MSM slant on them. Okay?

  318. Yes.She.Can.

    I’m still burned that she gave that twat bitchell an exclusive interview. Why..not..me? LOL, I sound like Bambi!

  319. Debbie: HRC and her supporters need to be on the stories of the voting shenanigans from the Odorkma camp and supporters. Texas, with its hybrid system, is the perfect place for such chicanery to take place.

  320. Rememer that tonight’s exit polls don’t include the early voters who voted during the past few weeks. That’s why in CA etc HIllary’s percent kept climbing as the early/absentee votes got counted later.

  321. I can’t shake my good feeling, I think this will be a wonderful evening, at least it is so far!! And I will enjoy it, letting my emotions run freely, this is a good day/evening/night!!! Yes it is!!!!!

  322. TPS,

    i heard the same thing on the Rush show (he had a guest host). A couple of callers said they were repubs and had voted for HRC.

  323. I can’t imagine HRC losing Ohio, regardless of how anything else goes tonight. So much for ‘the streak.’

  324. Admin, hopefully closer to the closing of the polls we can start a new thread?? It seems many are ready to start commenting!!! and we are up to more than 500 posts here already… 😉

  325. the final SUSA had Hillary well ahead with early voters in Ohio. This looks good. And with late deciders going big for Hillary – it could be bigger than anyone anticipated!

  326. she is leading in most of the demographics in OHIO… despite big UNION endrsements for bambi… UNION households went 56-42 for clinton

  327. Gorto Says:

    March 4th, 2008 at 6:15 pm
    Admin..said this am..got it all planned out for tonight
    so he or she will..lol..

  328. RI is not until 9:00 pm. The first will be Vermont at 7:00 pm. Ohio is 7:30, but some counties are staying open later because of flooding and whatnot.

  329. We gonna win this thing tonite. Bama camp is already spinning about delegates and whatnot – talking about Mississippi and Wyoming

  330. JAS Says:
    Poor Howard Dean can’t stomach the huge problem he has created!he ought ot be ashamed of himself for the dean scream..hes a sack of lies Impeachment would be best for him!!!
    along with his little wussy’s kerry kennedy..pelosi reid..and bff..lol

  331. yes, basil – a GREAT number. Let’s hear it for NAFTA-gate, Rezko, some great ads by Hillary camp!

  332. Debbie- Cashonistas is a play on the derisive term for Clinton supporters- Clintonistas. A play on the Sandanistas from the 80’s. It’s a way of saying “FU, we’ll put our money where our mouths are.”

  333. Hillary’s very fashionable providers of CASH! (play on “fashionistas”)

    Andrea Bitchell (Like, “I hab a code in by doze, Bz. Bitchell”)
    Howard Dean = soon out of a job.

  334. Momentum is on our side!!! We’re going to win tonight, and we’re going to win this primary!!!

    What a fantastic, scrappy, and hard-found two weeks by Team Hillary. We’re still the underdog, and we’re facing a worthy opponent with mountains of cash, but we can do this!

  335. Independent Ben,

    You do mean those progressive bastions of Wyoming and Mississippi, right? 🙂

    After all, Wyoming did give us Dick Chenney.

  336. Well, Matthews already said that if HRC wins all but Vermont, it is a HUGE night for her. He better back that up when it comes true.

  337. Thinking of what I’ll use to diss Vermont.

    Let’s see…sucky cheese , elmer fudd hats , pepperidge farms. I hope they do secede from the union and take all their useless crap with them!

  338. Cauliflower Ear from 2 hours on the phones just now, destroyed hands from a rough day painting, starving to death and need to take the dog out…

    BUT I AM HERE!

    We are in it to win it!

  339. LET ME KNOW IF THIS INFO IS ALREADY OUT THERE, BUT JUST RECEIVED EMAIL THAT OBAMA SUPPORTERS ARE PRESENTING SIGNED FORMS BY EARLIER VOTERS TO BE COUNTED IN CAUCUS WITHOUT THEM BEING PRESENT. TEXAS DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT HAS BEEN INFORMED AND IS SENDING OUT INFO TO PRECINCTS THAT THESE VOTERS AREN’T TO BE COUNTED IN THE CAUCUS, BUT THE NERVE OF OBAMA!

  340. Dammit–I’ve always wanted to live in Vermont. It’s beautiful there with the Green Mountains. What the hell has happened to it? Too much isolation has destroyed some brain cells? Eh, New Hampshire is another state I’ve always wanted to live in. Maybe the people there are more sensible that they went Clinton’s way….

  341. Vermont..ALL the men look like Howard Dean! How the hell did he JUST ABOUT become a contender for President.

  342. JAS – uncalled for!! 😉 no sexism should be allowed in a Hillary supporting room! Some women, as men, are just simply dim!! hehe, but shouldn’t bash’em all.

  343. After all, Wyoming did give us Dick Chenney.yeah but now mccain to win.. with alan and pete simpson and the simpson boys uhh im not so sure..

  344. That SNAKE Howard Dean ned to take his dumb ass off the news station and hope and pray that Hillary win this nomination because it over if Obama is the nominee.

    Like Joe Scarbough said this morning the RNC can’t wait to get their hands on the “annoited” one and that RACE BAITING won’t work with them. They are coming hard and fast up that lying piece of crap you’ve propped up to be the puppet of the radical left but in the process you have distroyed the democratic party’s best chance to win this November.

    Hillary Clinton analysis was spot on, this will be a national security election and when the NSA and CIA get through reeming Bambi’s arogant nose all up in Rezko don’t say anything…just resign!!!

  345. Trying to catch up here. Spent all day listening to talk radio. In the almost 3 hours I listened to Laura Ingram this morning…ALL BUT THREE CALLERS followed Rush’s advice in Texas and Ohio. There must have been 30 of them, and those are just the ones that got thru.

    I thought “I am not sure I want to win this way” but then bitch-slapped myself. The Anything but Clinton tone really changed, AND she was even saying “well…if HIllary wins the GE, it won’t be has horrible as Obama!”

    I nearly drown in my paint. So it looks like we may have HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of THEM for us in both states. This is just too damn strange!

  346. >>BLUE COLLARS for Hill in Ohio 56-43% That’s BIG in Ohio.

    ohh yeah.. she will win OHIO by more than 15% points…

  347. HERE IN TEXAS, MY 18 YEAR-OLD SON AND I WILL GO CAUCUS @ 1830; OUR DIRECTIONS AT PRECINCT MEETING SUNDAY WAS THAT ONLY SIGNED SHEETS CONTAINING BOTH CANDIDATES NAMES – VOTERS FOR CLINTON AND OBAMA -WOULD BE ACCEPTED FOR THIS VERY REASON. HOPEFULLY THAT IS WHAT ALL PRECINCTS WILL ADHERE TO IN ORDER TO PREVENT THIS BALLOT STUFFING. JUST GOT A CANNED CALL FROM MO STATING TO VOTE IN NEXT COUPLE OF HOURS – GAG ME.

  348. who in the hell is telling pollsters that they think Obama is smarter than Hillary. They are definitely smoking the hopium, snorthing and eating it.

  349. IDUNN,

    I just love trying to match your physical appearance with your outrageous commentary! you are a riot!

    (Let’s see…sucky cheese , elmer fudd hats , pepperidge farms. I hope they do secede from the union and take all their useless crap with them!)

  350. lol carby 6:29 And please take some deep breaths so your blood pressure doesn’t shoot up from the frustration! This place needs you!

    I feel too flushed myself–and I need a shower. I’ve done practically nothing but post on all this today.

  351. birdgal, and he had a lot of Union endorsements too. Obviously, the rank and file voters are again saying “screw you” to their bosses 🙂

  352. I just love trying to match your physical appearance with your outrageous commentary!

    I’m a prettier version of Justin Guarini. 🙂

  353. I know one thing – there’s a lot of women on this site that I would hate to have mad at me! 😉

  354. Independent Ben: LOL!

    I know one thing – there’s a lot of women on this site that I would hate to have mad at me!

    I had a male friend tell me years ago, that he would not want to have HRC mad at him. 🙂 He is for BO, I’m sure.

  355. guys, I am from West Virginia. Rockefeller straying to Obama, while not surprising, will hurt Hillary. She will need to work there.

    I will be able to work boots on the ground in WVA. I know the place and I know it well. I’m ready to roll some heads

  356. Independent Ben,

    Totally agree with you. Was just commenting on MS.

    Here’s to OH, TX, and RI! (F Vermont! 😆 )

  357. Hehe, Ben. That’s definitely true about me, I confess. Many people have said so. Even the DOT has been very afraid of me.

    But that people often seem to find me scary makes me sad at the same time. Oh well.

    Go Clinton!

  359. all 5ft 96 lbs of me will head to coal country for Hillary. I can round up lots of men and women who will work hard for her. I’ve already rounded them up for money.

  361. guys, I am from West Virginia.

    Hubby and I are BIG campers/hikers. When we lived in Va. Beach, we headed to West Va. every chance we got to do back woods hiking. (we don’t go there anymore because now we live in the woods). I LOVE WEST VA.!! One of my favorite memories was getting to go caving with a group of about 7 adventures into uncharted territory in Organ Cave. 🙂

  362. Matthews – talking about the kitchen sink. He said Hillary was going around talking about his religion 🙁 Unreal. That moron on 60 minutes asked her about it, and that is all.

  363. I can’t believe latinos only made up 33% of the vote. It’s at least a point more than any pollster suggested, but I bet it’s higher. It could be they did more early voting.

  364. *******************************************************************************Weather has been fabulous in Texas today, after rains yesterday. Are they extending hours in Ohio due to bad weather? Has bad will this impact Hillary’s rural voters? What’s the latest anyone?

    ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  365. Basil, seriously…people tell me ALL the time how much I look like Justin. It’s weird. Plus, people who meet me for the first time always stare real hard. I just know they are thinking, “Man, what IS she? Brazillian? White? Italian? Aztec?”

    LOL!

  366. fox news..exit polls…clinton women winning women AND UNION …

    All those union paying volunteers ain’t helping bambi

  367. Organ Cave…hmmm. What kind of organs are hanging in that cave, maybe the kind heterosexual females would find appealing? Stalactites and stalagmites in the shape of penises? If so, I’ll have to take a trip there lol….

  368. HILLARY WON WHITE MEN IN EXIT POLLS IN OHIO……….WHOPPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i DON’T CARE i AM POSTING THIS.

  369. Juan Williams conceded that Obama cannot knock her out with ALL OF HIS MONEY

    Hillary is winning the Democrats…hahah

    Take that FatASS Crawley and Bitchell and Brazillo

  370. HILLARY WON WHITE MEN IN EXIT POLLS IN OHIO……….WHOPPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OMG!!!!!! YAHOO!!!!!

    FOX News – AA turnout in Texas is 18%. This is a GOOD number for us

    What is up with that????

  371. >.AA turnout in Texas is 18%

    and latino turn out is around 35%… hahaha bambi was screwed big time 🙂

    We are in this to win!

  374. Hillary winning white men??? woah, even I couldn’t see that one coming!

    I really think people, and especially the media just didn’t think that 3am ad was a big deal, and yet it seems to have been a part of a turnaround. Shows why they gave it so much free airtime playing it over and over, I bet they are regretting it now!!

  375. Hillary will win Ohio, Texas, and Rhode Island today. I made this prediction several days ago in one of the threads.
    That is still my prediction.

  376. When HC wins both OH and TX (no matter by how much) the campaign needs to drive home the issue of all the money BO has and can not close the deal…. that is the word for tomorrw and going forwad.

  377. how can u guys watch that tv..i turn it off and put movie channell on since noon..i swear i would break my tv i get to damn tense on election days..i learned the last few times..with matthews talking,adrea wolf candycane brazill jackcrapcaput

    I loved the statement on Fox “The arrogance of Obama supporters telling Clinton to drop out may cause a voter backlash”

    What arrogance! Shame on the Obama camp.

  379. yes, go stinky white boyzz… i knew they had it in them.

    now, damn it we need more men to call in our phone banks.

    Now. Strategy for Mississippi….how can Hillary win back some AA there? I do not want her

  380. NM. I put up the 3 am ad. I like it. Screw you, guys. I’m going home.

    (really I am, but I’ll be back on shortly)

  381. I love how Wolfson turned around the expectations game for tonite – by saying that if BO can’t sweep all of these states, considering all of his spending and saying he is the inevitable nominee – then the party is having huge buyer’s remorse on this guy.

    Think about it – does the Democratic Party really want to hear Rezko, Rezko, Rezko? Do they really think BO can stand toe-to-toe with McCain and talk about national security?

  382. hellp SpacegirlArt, I also listened to Hannity today while driving and can confirm people calling in saying that they voted for Hillary.

  383. I think Idunn only wants to see final numbers–those are the ones that ultimately count, that’s when the fat lady has sung. Though I think it’s true that the exits might be good for determining if any funny business went on. One of the disgusting things about the IMO sham 2004 election: it allowed election riggers to dismiss the importance of exit polls because now they could falsely say “they aren’t accurate” when really the COUNT then wasn’t accurate. It was fake. EPs used to regularly be quite accurate, but then in The Bush Age Of Unreason, they’re suddenly not? In the Ukraine they can be used to check an election’s legitimacy, but here they can’t?

    I don’t know what to think anymore, maybe exit polls have gone bad, like some part of the physical universe has collapsed and exit polls have been affected. But I’m waiting to see the final count tonight.

  385. Hi Dot….

    just trying to catch up. Did y’all see my post several minutes ago re: RW talk radio event today?

  386. I think once McCain gets the nomonation, BO needs to watch his back the republicans will eat him alive (which will help HC)!

  387. ooh, I can’t spell, sorry, spacegirl, there.

    I love this quote too, and believe there is some truth to it! “The arrogance of Obama supporters telling Clinton to drop out may cause a voter backlash”

    Never in a million years thought Fox would be the place to view, even tho I’m not, watching, regrettably cnn : hides in corner feeling ashamed :

  388. CJ, it’s because white men in Ohio are heavily blue collar. It’s not a latte drinkin’ state. Vermont though? I’ll never eat Ben and Jerry ice cream again.

  389. BTW- gimme some damn feedback and pass that around on the site. I’ll keep this one updated weekly if not more often. Wednesday is moneybomb day from here on out. Moneybomb Monday’s sound great, but Wednesday is Hump Day and the only thing better than humpin’ is money….well, unless it’s money for humpin’….but that’s another issue altogether and involves a midget.

  390. OMG…I have felt so “out there” today….working in rich republican household

    a biggoted, racist republican household!

    but they don’t like McCain either! LOL

  391. The campaign will need to remind voters how much money the Clinton foundation raised for Katrina victims in MS and that Obama’s hope foundation raised ZERO for MS. Run ads showing Katrina aftermath with Hillary’s outrage at FEMA response demanding action and Bill rasing money for victims. Then close by asking the question where was Obama when you and your children needed him.

  392. ABC said she is getting 60% of the women’s vote in Ohio, and 57% of the women’s vote in Texas,

    Steph said if the trend keeps up it’s very good news for Hillary.

  393. BO has already showed himself to be a novice in his exchanges with McCain. BO says, thinking he’s very clever: “al-qaeda wouldn’t be in Iraq if you hadn’t voted for the war.” McCain just comes back: “You’re talking about the past, buddy.” Oops! BO shouldn’t approach McCain without preconditions.

  394. CJ, it’s in the eye that looks, I really can’t understand how people are willing to disconnect their minds as much as is required to actually fall for this guy, but it needed to happen soon enough.

    Just needs to happen now, if (as we know she will) Hillary wins OH and TX, the press must continue to actually report the truth (rezko) on obama! he is going down!

  395. OkieAtty,
    I’ll donate any day to the Wednesday Midget Humpin’ Moneybomb. 😀

    (Hello everyone, long time no see. I couldn’t stay away tonite, haven’t been able to concentrate on work at all, been hoping and praying for victory all day long. Phew!)

  396. We are going to clean up!

    I am gonna go make tacos as a tribute!

    and that wasn’t even planned! LOL

    I just had a craving for tacos tonight!

    i betcha bambi goes home tonight and beats the crap out of michelle.

    ya know, IDunn, I can visualize this

  398. I just wish Obama’s going down would have happened a lot sooner–a lot of people have been highly stressed over this election, and as the truth about him spreads, there will probably be a lot of disappointed humiliated Obama supporters some day. I won’t–and don’t–have any sympathy for them, but I’m also not gonna gloat over this. It all should have never happened. It’s a sad situation more than anything else, all the seeming divisions and hatreds across the various groups. Though it’s possible the media’s been playing that up–just like with Bush. People weren’t as divided as the media liked to depict.

    But no one can stay cloaked forever. Look what happened with Bush even? His crowd tried to sustain his teflon coating, but, eventually, the teflon dried out and flaked off.

  399. Gorto, CJ..
    Not only the white men but the stinky white boys too. 🙂

    Spacegirl- howyadoin’?

    CJ – I can’t watch TV either. to test myself, i just switched on fox and lasted about 30 seconds coz the Vermont results are in and we all know all they have in vermont (according to Idunn) are: “sucky cheese , elmer fudd hats and pepperidge farms.’

  400. I’m thinkin’ I should be fixin’ to send my BFF a little zap to her blackberry with a message:

    “ne ner ne ner ne ner”
