Update: Our Obama V.P. pick HERE
We lost the great Congresswoman and fighter Stephanie Tubbs-Jones yesterday.
We remember when Stephanie challenged the electoral college vote in the 2004 election cycle because she cared about the voters of Ohio and she knew something had gone dreadfully awry or been tampered with to defeat the intent of the voters of Ohio. Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs-Jones did what was right not caring if others in the electoral college would support her protest. Stephanie was a fighter. We love fighters.
We won’t eulogize Stephanie today. We’ll leave that tribute for a later day. The challenge for us today is to live up to the ideals of Stephanie Tubbs-Jones. The challenge for us today is to work extra hard to fill the void left by the great Congresswoman from Ohio.

Big Media is making a big whoop-te-do about the luggage being stowed on board the Obama Titanic. Fact is, the Obama Titanic is going under the waves. Obama will concede in August or in NOvember.
If the Democratic Party of Obama/Dean/Brazile/Pelois persists in its corruption and selects Obama at the Denver convention it will die. It will commit suicide. The Democratic Party will commit suicide.
Since early June we have received communications from the incense fogged Hopium dens. The language cloying, sickly sweet, always the same – Hillary will have to get Obama the white working class vote – Hillary will have to get Obama the women’s vote. At times the communications have stated that a woman governor as a vice presidential Obama running mate would destroy the NObama NOvember movement (this is how little the incense burners understand determined Hillary supporters). At all times the communications have been delusional.
Let’s be clear: It will either be Hillary nominated as the Democratic Party candidate in August – or NObama, NOvember. Is that clear enough?
The Obama Titanic will sail at dawn to meet its fate with the great iceberg, the Phantom Menace, the American voter.
It does not matter who Obama selects for vice president nor how much money Obama spends nor how many big rallies Obama organizes, nor how many flowery speeches Obama mouths. Obama is not electable.
Obama is not electable for a very simple reason – Obama is not qualified to be president of the United States.
Obama ran a race-baiting, and gay-bashing, and woman hating campaign. Obama was awarded delegates by a corrupt Democratic National Committee that the voters had denied Obama. Obama ran a campaign attacking core Democratic values. Obama attacked the record of the ONLY Democratic president elected to two terms, since the presidency of the great Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
We will never support Barack Obama. Hillary supporters will never vote for Barack Obama. The attacks on Hillary were attacks on us too, not just Hillary. We were demeaned and vilified as well as Hillary. We voted and supported Hillary because she has a lifetime of experience and is simply the best there is. It was not hero(ine) worship, nor was it a cult. We were utterly selfish – we voted and supported Hillary not to grace her with deserved honors but because she was the best – for us all.
Hillary supporters are not going to the back of the bus. We will not reward sexism and misogyny and the gang rape of an excellent woman candidate for the benefit of an unqualified younger man who flim-flams and charms the Party elites. NO. NObama. NOvember.

Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton:
“There are few words to express the shock we feel at this time. Our deepest condolences are with Stephanie’s son, Mervyn, her family, and her many loved ones, friends, and supporters.
Stephanie’s friendship meant the world to us, a friendship that deepened through every trial and challenge. We could always count on her to be a shoulder on which to lean, an ear to bend, a voice to reassure. Over the course of many years, with many ups and many downs, Stephanie was right by our side—unwavering, indefatigable.
It was that fighting spirit—safely stowed behind her disarming smile, backed by so much integrity and fiery intelligence—that allowed Stephanie to rise from modest beginnings, to succeed in public service, to become a one-woman force for progress in our country.
All of us who were lucky to know her and love her can only hope now to live like her—to be as passionate, loyal, hard charging, and joyful in life’s pursuits.
Stephanie was one of a kind. We will miss our friend always.”
After the Hillary victory in Ohio Stephanie Tubbs-Jones marched to Pennsylvania with a message for Pennsylvania voters: “Step-UP“. The voters of Pennsylvania listened and they stepped up to their responsibilities.
The Superdelegates had now better “Step-UP”. The Democratic Party is about to commit suicide and an “intervention” is needed if it is to be saved before destruction in NOvember.
Stephanie Tubbs-Jones spoke for us and for Hillary to the people of Pennsylvania. The people listened. Will the Superdelegates listen?
It’s not for Hillary’s sake the Superdelegates should listen to the Democratic grassroots. It’s for our sakes and their own survival that Superdelegates should nominate Hillary. We still think that:
If the Superdelegates do wake up to their pending destruction before next week’s vote in Denver it would serve them well if Hillary Clinton would walk away from them.
It would teach a great lesson to the authors (Dean/Brazile/Pelosi/Kennedy/Kerry) of the Obama atrocity if Hillary Clinton would refuse to rescue the Democratic Party as it becomes clearer and clearer they are on board the Titantic.
But the message from Stephanie Tubbs-Jones to the people of Pennsylvania still resonates within us. This is still time for a happy alternative to the mass suicide in Denver. There is still a smile left before the Denver atrocity.
Like Mona Lisa from the Louvre, Stephanie Tubbs-Jones is sending Superdelegates a Hillary Clinton Smile.
