Damn, Hillary Clinton! The race is virtually tied (and with MI and FL *actually* tied) and she has the unmitigated gall to want to continue to let people vote. She wants to drag this out to the convention. And now Kos, doing his best Natalie Imbruglia impersonation, is blaming Hillary for ripping the Democratic party asunder. Oh, woe is me!
HI, Will! I don’t even know you yet but I am inventing PUMA, right this every second. Party Unity My Ass. See? It’s like Back to the Future. Isn’t this cool?
How awful it is to allow the remaining states add to her win column. Of course, those states count as long as they don’t count according to Obamaphiles. Yeah, see, if your vote actually means something, it must be smothered. We can’t have voters determining the election. Like MI and FL can be seated as long as they sit on their hands and don’t make a fuss. Better to be seen and not heard. Causing a scene is soooo gauche. Why do they want to be rude and disruptive? Can’t they see Obama is trying to wrap this baby up?
Kos and the Official Obama Blog of the 2008 primary season are terribly worried that this dragging things out is just prolonging the inevitable and will make Clinton pathetic. I dunno. I find it fascinating. It’s like watching the “Butterfly Effect” in action. Who knows what little gust of ill wind will finish one of the two off? But anyway, getting back to that inevitable coronation, er, nomination for Obama, I think Kos might have forgotten those of us who already voted for Clinton. Yeah, those of us in NY, NJ, CA, MA, OH, OK, AZ etc depend on MI and FL in our column or none of our states count.
Let that sink in a sec, Kos. The RULZ as presently dictated, not only disenfranchise FL and MI but every other big state and swing state that voted for her- decisively. I would hate to piss us off if I were Barry, because that would be very divisive, in a rather huge and unpleasant way. I’d much rather piss off Wyoming and Utah.
But there’s still time. Yep, because August is 5 months away and as long as the result is still a tie, a very likely scenario, the superdelegates can go to the convention and select the candidate best suited to run against John McCain in November. If we don’t rush it by demanding that the supers pick one NOW!, then if it turns out that the GOP war machine starts going negative on either candidate, the other could step in to the frontrunner’s place. If I were Kos, this is precisely the scenario I would want if I wanted to win in the fall. The strongest candidate at the time of the convention would be the nominee. That’s not divisive, Kos. That’s saving your bacon from being the dimwitted blogger you turned out to be.
As for divisions, this can be solved rather easily: 1.) seat the delegates from FL and MI as is. That will make the voters of these states hate the Democrats less. 2.) Stop being the anti-Clinton supporters. That will make the rest of US not want to put your nuts in a vice. And 3.) Get behind Hillary because she’s the best qualified candidate, unlike Barry who has nothing going for him right now except for the fair weather friends in the media. That should be the only criteria for nomination, who is the best presidential material.
And stop trying to rush things. Your strategy is obvious and irritating and it makes you look pathetic.
