It is over…

In November of 2000 we watched in horror as the Supreme Court appointed George Bush President of the United States of America. Al Gore had run a strong campaign, and won the popular vote, but in the end he lost because the electoral votes failed to reflect the will of the American people.

Do you remember how you felt? The outrage? The Injustice? If you don’t remember please take a moment to relive those dark days…

Stay with me now.

Back in 1992 I was urged to take action in helping shape the political landscape of our country. I volunteered to help the local Democratic party by making phone calls, getting people registered to vote, etc. Dorothy Bradley was running for Governor, and Bill Clinton was running for President. In the general election Dorothy lost, but Bill Clinton carried Montana! It seems unbelievable now. It was the beginning of my love affair with politics, and I was a big fan of Bill and Hillary. But then I watched our party lose touch, and fall victim to the mindless chants and slogans of the Republican party. I watched Bill lie about his sexual appetite for interns. Yet I still felt that his activities around sex had very little if anything to do with his ability to run the country, and still supported him strongly. What I am saying is that the Clintons have been with me throughout my political interest. I strongly supported Hillary’s bid for the nomination and to this day feel that she would be an excellent President.

But…

She has run a mean spirited campaign, especially recently. It is the campaign that should have been run against W in 2004, NOT against a fellow Democrat in 2008. She does not have the majority of the popular vote, and will not be able to make up the difference by June 3rd. She wants Florida and Michigan to count, but they broke party rules. Their delegates should be seated after an equitable plan for doing so is formulated, but the results of their voting must not be counted.

Hillary is counting on the super delegates to act for her as the Supreme Court acted for George Bush in 2000.  This is the ONLY WAY SHE CAN WIN THE NOMINATION, and it must not happen. The party will be destroyed if it does. Meanwhile, she is hurting Obama’s ability to mount a campaign against John McBush.

So please ask yourself…isn’t it time to move on? For the good of the party, but most importantly for the good of our great country.  Let’s not be like Rush Limbaugh, who not only doesn’t care about The United States of America, but obviously loathes the Democratic process through which we elect our leaders.

It isn’t easy, but it is the right thing to do. Hillary can not win. Let’s support our next President:

Barack Obama!



Who gave Hillary the self-destruct code?

Many things have brought me close to posting over the past few months and now I just want to take a moment of your time to express how I feel about my party…

I am a cubs fan and a liberal. What does it mean? That for some unknown reason the chemical makeup of my brain chooses to feel the sting of loss over the mindless choice of the powerhouse team or party. I like to think that this means I am thoughtful, but most likely just makes me sadistic. Occasionally there is a win for my team or my party…the rareness of which causes a stimulation of the pleasure center of my brain. Indeed, you say, he IS a wacko liberal! But there is a purpose for writing this.

The Democrats had been handed the White House by the bumbling incompetence of the Bush regime and the corporate-owned Republic congress. The Republic party served up a mess of presidential hopefuls that screamed “We want to lose!” It was seemingly in the bag.

Then along come the primary voters. Unable to make up their minds, they go back and forth between Hillary and Barack…and hand us a shovel with which Hillary is now digging the grave of the Democratic Party. If the party nominates a candidate who does not have the popular vote…they learned NOTHING in 2000. If Hillary continues to act like a Republic she will damage Obama to the point where he will not win. I think Hillary would be an excellent president…but if she is nominated I, along with many others, will be leaving the Democrats for dead.

Does it bother you when I use “Republic” rather than “Republican?” Does it sound as if I am an idiot? Now you now how it sounds when you say “Democrat party” rather than “Democratic party”.

Anyway…

I hope someone close to Hillary will point out to her that she can’t win the nomination fairly, and needs to drop out. I hope the voters of America are intelligent enough to realize that Obama is not and never has been a Muslim, that Reverend Wright is not running for president, and that Rush Limbaugh hates America and loathes freedom. I hope that on November 2nd I get to feel that spike of adrenaline that comes with winning, and continues with the hope of an America that makes a return to the values we had prior to 9/11.

Come on Democrats. Let’s win this one. America needs a change.

Oh, and a World Series featuring the Cubs would be appreciated as well.

But both seem like long shots at this point.

 



His middle name scares them!

Last night I watched Barack Hussien Obama give a speech at the 100 Club dinner in New Hampshire on C-Span. He is a powerful and eloquent speaker. It did not feel rehearsed or tired. He had the room captivated, and I couldn’t help but feel that I was watching history being made.

I still feel that Hillary is the best candidate, but I am in the 40 and over catagory and began my interest in politics by volunteering for the Clinton campaign in ’92. 

The great thing about the Democratic candidates this year is that they are all good. Not just good…exceptional. If Hillary loses the primaries and Obama is nominated, he is someone we can get behind and believe in. Edwards chances of winning against John McCain (the eventual Republican nominee) are slim in my opinion, but he is still a great candidate.

Could we be headed for an Obama/Richardson ticket? I think it may be heading that way. I guess that what I am trying to say is that I have just become one of those annoying undecided voters.

On a side note: Coobs is a slimeball racist liar. From the comment section of the Billings Gazette: “Any Montanans who say they support Hillary are picking strategy over conviction. They’ve had to choose the lesser of two evils, between Hillary’s campaign machine, and a black-muslim candidate, Barack Hussein Obama, and they think they’d rather have her. Neither one is electable, but that’s the candidates they have to work with.”

Keep telling yourself that it is the Democrats who suffer from unelectable candidates, cause you sure as hell won’t convince anyone else.



Former Senator

A mass email sent to subscribers today (from “Senator Conrad Burns”)contained the following snippet:

WASHINGTON (AP) _ Former Sen. Conrad Burns is no longer part of a federal investigation of jailed lobbyist Jack Abramoff, the Justice Department said Wednesday.

 “I never doubted that the baseless and politically motivated charges leveled against me would be found to be without merit.” claims Mr. Burns, as though he had been exonerated.

“No longer a part of” is far from exoneration.


 



Predictions

Filed under: 2008, The Future, vote for me

Hillary Clinton will win the nomination of the Democratic party after a difficult primary season…Obama will accept the V/P slot. The filth thrown at Clinton/Obama will go far beyond the shameful swiftboat campaign of ’04. Misogyny? You bet. Thinly veiled racism? That’s on the menu for sure. You thought playing on fears of terrorism was out of style? Nope. Will Barack Obama be called a terrorist? Will Hillary Clinton be linked to terrorists? Sure. It will be revolting. Worst of all…many voters will believe it.

But the Democrats will win the White House after the failings of the Bush years come home to roost in 2008, and thanks in part to the independent campaign of Ron Paul, who will leave the Republican party, his die-hard supporters in tow. Could Bloomberg shake up the Republican race even more? I think so. Many Americans will be voting independent this year after the dismal performance of both parties…but it will have a far greater negative impact on the GOP.

The GOP will wake up from their haze of repeated failures to stop terrorism, gay people, and abortion (have they even tried, really?), and nominate John McCain. He will do very well with The Huck on board as V/P but ultimately lose due to his continued support for the Bush administration’s foriegn policy and the GOP’s other, more successful war: The War On The Middle Class.

Get ready for an ugly fight for power, the likes of which we have not seen before.



Misc.

I haven’t been deeply involved in politics for several months…mostly observing Sunday talk shows, reading the paper, and acting like a normal person who only pays attention once every four years. For what it’s worth, here are my opinions so far:

Hillary Clinton with Barak Hussein Obama as her V/P would be an unbeatable ticket. Notice that I saved those in the Republic party from having to point out that (oh my frakin’ God!) Hussein is Senator Obama’s middle name. Mine is Emmett.

John Edwards, although popular out here in the liberal blogosphere, is the weakest of the three leading Dems. The Republic war machine will eat him alive. What do I have to support my opinion on this? A gut feeling.

Any one of the Republicans is very vulnerable. Huckabee raised taxes and pardoned a record number of criminals, but he has the support of the “keep Christ in government” crowd. This same crowd will be just a bit leary of Mitt Romney, who was for abortion before he was against it.

Guiliani has 9/11. Just like W. We have grown tired of this American tragedy being exploited for political gain, not to mention that his policies would make him a liberal here in Montana (Gun Control?).

The only real threat is McCain, but the poor Republicans seem dazed and confused.

Personally, I like Ron Paul. Scrap the IRS? Hell ya!

Once again, just my thoughts on the situation. Don’t ask me for supporting evidence-I just don’t have the time anymore.



VanDelay Architects busted

costanza2.jpg George Costanza has been ordered to stop practicing architecture after the state board of architects ruled that since he was not an actual architect, he was not qualified to run an architectural firm.

 “I don’t know what I’ll do, Jerry!” said Mr. Costanza.
