Ladies and gentlemen, you are looking fine today!

We should actually thank the RBC for yesterday’s ruling. It just dawned on me that we are the hottest voters on the damn planet. Yes, indeed. EVERYONE wants us now.

The DNC is going to try to push us around like some bad soon-to-be-ex-boyfriend. But secretly, they’re insecure and desperate for us to stay with them. Expect them to vacillate between violent threats and sweet talking. They want make up sex in the worst way and will probably do it badly. There is no orgasm in it for you, Clintonistas, but that doesn’t mean they won’t try. Just don’t return their phone calls. Get a restraining order. Change your address.

The GOP will see us as the prizes that we are. Yeah, they’re a bunch of jerks too. McCain will ply us with roses and champagne. They’ll want to “listen” to us. Lend us a shoulder to cry on. But they’re rotten to the core and we know it. As long as the sex is good, sleep with them all you want. But use protection and don’t commit to anything.

Hey, enjoy the single life. Life is pretty good right about now. We’re sitting on top of a goldmine.

Oh, and it still is the Map, not the Math. Here are the latest Monte Carlo simulations from Hominid Views:

Clinton vs McCain: She wins 100% of the time.

Obama vs McCain: Some days he’s up, some days he’s down. Today, he beats McCain but just barely. (I guarantee that will change after Saturday)

  1. I’m heading over to our small local NJ township office on Tuesday, after I vote, to change my Democratic registration to unaffiliated. One of my sisters is going with me and will do the same.

  2. I am not expecting the DNC to reach out to us. Just yesterday I heard a discussion on TV about women’s anger at the party. One pundit said that he did not think it was a problem because once women started thinking about McCain they would vote for Obama. No one disagreed.

    It really angered me to hear this. I am sick and tired of being taken for granted. The only person that I’ve heard take this seriously is Pat Buchanan. He pointed out that women are the largest group of voters, and a huge part of the Democratic party, so it is a big problem for Obama that he is viewed unfavorably by a majority of us. The party needs to pay for treating women so badly. To my knowledge not one leader spoke up against the blatant sexism in the media. There is no way they would have stayed silent if comparably racist comments had been made about Obama. (Nor should they have.) By their silence they have sold all women out.

  3. These people have done incalculable damage with their race- and gender-baiting. Vote for them? I don’t think so. They’ve done us a terrible disservice, and It is unforgiveable.

    Everyone better grab a shovel because we’re going to be cleaning up after the Unity Pony for a long time.

    [RD, check the spelling of Hominid on your blog roll.]

  4. I just got my invitation and script for todays calls to SD. CHelsea will be on the conference call at 4:00.

  5. Great post, RD. You really had me howling when you said “There is no orgasm in it for you, Clintonistas.” Ain’t that the truth?

    Incidentally, I think McCain is already courting all the groups that Obama has shat upon. I took his comments condemning that Pfleger idiot and talking about how much he respects Clinton as an overture to us. It was a much nicer gesture than O’s non-apology. He’s also been out campaigning in blue collar and latino areas. I think McCain is well aware that whole demographics are seriously up for grabs if Obama is nominated.

  6. Cognitive- You are correct. Why just yesterday, McCain was under the bus buying us all drinks. He’s the kinda guy you would want to have a beer with under the bus, if you know what I mean.

  7. Just don’t return their phone calls. Get a restraining order. Change your address.

    I’ll just tell the scrawny ‘bots that sure, I’ll be voting for BO — have a nice day.

    Kind of like — sure, I’ll be at _ next Fri — pehaps I’ll see you there.

  8. I do have a proposal for the Democratic Party.

    If they work hard and get the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) passed before November, I’ll consider a vote for BO. That way, I’ll know they’re serious about the party platform. There’s pro-choice Repubs to work with across the aisle for that bipartisan thrill.

  9. Ga6thDem from TL (and sometimes here) is saying that George Steph. of ABC says there will be more Trinity tapes that will come out soon. What’s he going to say “Trinity, what’s that?”

    Any news on Puerto Rico?

  10. I am still in an outrage over yesterday’s RBC meeting, which I watched gavel to gavel. Here are some of the things I am upset about:

    1. RBC members patted themselves on the back for being democratic and above board in their process. Are they nuts? They clearly had a backroom deal and which they allowed us to observe being sanctified through a “vote.”
    2. They patted themselves on the back for being a party of rules. Huh? They did not follow their own rules which clearly state that delegates cannot be switched from one presidential preference to another. Delegate votes were switched from Uncommitted to Obama, plus 4 delegates switched from Clinton to Obama.
    3. A party of rules? The RBC decided to disallow ANY delegates from Florida and Michigan in punishment for violating a sequencing rule. This had the consequence of allowing Obama and others to withdraw their names from the Michigan ballot, setting the stage for the travesty that occurred. This would not have happened if they had followed their own rules and decided to strip these states of half their delegates, as the Republicans did. If that had happened, no candidate would have withdrawn and candidates would have campaigned in these states. It is perfectly clear that the RBC decision to strip all delegates was untenable from the outset. Even though their original decision created unimaginable problems for the candidates, they then immediately backtracked on their own decision, awarding half the delegates in both states.
    4. During the RBC meeting yesterday, RBC members blamed the states and the candidates for the problems, never accepting any responsibility themselves.

    It is perfectly clear that the DNC created the mess that was Florida and Michigan. They should have owned up to it. As much as I dislike many positions of the Republican party, I must admit that their party has a fairer and more democratic candidate nomination process.

  11. I just went to CBSnews.com to see if there is any info on PR. One of the headlines by Jeff Greenfield is about Bobby Kennedy’s assassination. I don’t understand how he can be so racially insensitive. How dare he mention that politicians have historically be assassinated. I hope that he sends Obama an apology. I think that we should all refrain from reading CBSnews.com in order to show our outrage.

  12. CNN calls PR for Hillary.

  13. Per TalkLeft it’s 61-35 Hillary among men, 61-30 among women by the exit polls. We’ll see.

  14. CNN’s exit polls have 70-30 Hillary. Yowza.

  15. REVOTE MICHIGAN AUG. 5th.

    Blitzer noted the last time a candidate won the delegate count but lost the popular vote was Humphrey vs. McGovern.

  16. BernieO,
    Ain’t no way, no way at all, that Obama gets my vote in Nov.

    He’s an unholy combination of a “charming” Nixon ( a truly horrifying combination of political viciousness that, this time, is not written on the face or in the voice) without Nixon’s intelligence and the Shrub’s utter indifference to facts, truth, and the details of governing.

    I think the country will be better off with McCain – whose faults are well-known – than with the potential disaster that Obama would be as President.

    As for the Dem. Party: after two years of stunning incompetence and spinelessness, the DNC’s acts this weekend demonstrate to me that it does not deserve my support at the Presidential level.

  17. dar1a g: CNN’s exit polls have 70-30 Hillary. Yowza.

    I just made myself a cosmo to enjoy the election returns. In the meantime, BO is busy running away from his church. LOL at the Democrats.

  18. Oh! My! God!

    The Nominee is in for in a sound humiliation in PR.

    I hope the turnout is high enough, which means Hillary wins the popular vote no matter how you slice and dice it.

  19. CNN exit polls 70-30 for both men and women. For the first time in the primary, more men than women voted.

  20. Nice win for Hillary. On a side note, can you believe Donna Brazille on CNN? First she conceded that Obama would have to do “homework” to “build a coalition.” We all know Hillary’s already got a coalition, so I hope undeclared Supers were listening! Then she babbles on about unity, unity, unity. The guy, I forget his name, raised the specter of the Supreme Court again, as well as the war. As usual, I wasn’t cowed by their rangling. This ain’t no rodeo. Maybe they’ll wear themselves out trying.

  21. If 500,000 turned out and its 70-30, 200,000 people vote get for Clinton.

    REVOTE MICHIGAN!!!

  22. Civil Disobedience is what savagepolitics calls it. Do whatever you think is comfortable for you in expressing your protest to DNC , party elites, the media in propping up this unprepared hack of a candidate. Personally, I have chosen to give up my Dem registration and I will even go as far as voting for McCain to make sure Obama loses.

  23. Jeffrey Toobin was on CNN and said that Obama can win back the women voters just by sticking with the issues. We all know what the issues are and our contempt for this party and their shenanigans trump the issues as of right now. The issues have not had much bearing these last two years with Pelosi and Reid in charge of the agenda. I ain’t buying. And Toobin better get his head on straight. And Donna B is on CNN after a morning at ABC.

  24. I heard more women than men. Hm. Fox predicting only 80k net for Hill. I was hoping for 160K.

  25. Hmmm, if its 80k net that would mean its lower turnout than 500,000 people.

    —————–

    Like he was after WV, KY…What will he do this time to change the subject?

  27. Fox has different exit polls than CNN. I calculated it and they have 61-39 at 400,000 turnout for her to net 80K+.

  28. CNN has 70-30 WS. That’s 40%.

  29. Sorry, you were referencing Fox exits. I think it will be higher than they have. Every exit poll when she wins has overstated his support by a lot.

  30. I’m waiting for all the pundits to start calling Puerto Rican’s racist.

  31. I do not want to make up. I believed in the concept of the new media, now I see that we crashed the gate to install a new media that is just as corrupt and bias as the old media. No difference.

  32. That doesn’t make sense. Exits are all performed by the same company and shared. Fox is actually best on reporting exits, CNN usually screws up in some way.

  33. Are Fox or CNN numbers, first wave polling? They don’t usually list first waves until they weight it.

  34. I’ve done it! I just joined the McCain campaign. I signed up at their web site. I’m not going to send him any money or anything and I won’t work for his campaign, but I will vote for him. So far, it’s the best way I can think of to express my disgust with the shit that went on yesterday.
    Just like I told the DNC I would last night in an email.

  35. If things continue as they look like they are going to, I plan a vote for McCain. I conceptualize this as a protest vote, because that is the ONLY way to send a message to the DNC. The fact that McCain’s positions are not pro-woman is irrelevant to me, because as I see it, the DNC is not pro-woman either. Women have been worse than taken for granted in this primary nominating process. Further, as I said in my post above, I believe the DNC actually has the worse nominating process than the Repub party. Further, the Democratic party routinely nominates candidates who lose in the GE. WTF? Why should I support this party.

    Go Terry McAuliffe!!

    ———————————–

    The under 30 women who are voting for Obama can fight their own gender wars. It is quite evident that they don’t appreciate what their previous generations did for them. After how Hillary, the first viable female candidate has been treated by the media, the DNC, the party elites, or Obama and his minions, they have lost their moral high ground for using that argument against McCain. We will not be cowed down by their threats and blackmail.

  38. Its now 69% for men 68% for women in the CNN exit poll page.

  39. Hey SM, where do I sign up to join that party?

  40. Obama WILL NEVER get the Latino vote.

    EVER.

    PR reflects the numbers Obama’s been getting all over the US.

    PUMA all the way.

  43. If 400K turned out and its 68-31, its 148K vote get for HIllary.

  44. Someone at Talk Left said, CNN was the only one who paid for exit polling.

  45. Oh, so they pay to fix it. Yeah, no thanks. There’s a Scooby-Doo movie on I could be watching.

  46. pm317: Young women never understand sexism. It is not until they enter the work force and sex discrimination causes them to lose promotions and salary raises that they get the idea. I don’t mind working for the rights of young women even though they don’t get it. It is my judgment that the best way to work for their rights at this point in time is to send a message to the Democratic party by not voting Democratic. We must be constantly vigilant to protect women’s rights.

  47. Somebody just knocked at my door, but I didn’t answer.

    Wonder if it was the Dem party, looking for UNITY?

  48. I sent a donation to HRC today (wow, remind me not to look at my credit card bill for awhile). When it comes to speech, unfortunately people hear the $$ more than the “….”

    In any case, watched Ickes on MTP today (I always watch the iTunes podcast). He was great…sometimes he can be too aggressive for me (I’m just a demure NCer, not a rough n’ tuff NYer), but he was great. He didn’t slap Tim around as much as I would want, but that’s fine.

    Tim just kept asking him, “How can you count Michigan?!?!?!” Ickes just looks at him, almost saying, “B/c they voted, dumbass. Why do you hate Michigan so much, Russert?” Tim just whined and whined, “she said it wouldn’t count!!!! b-b-b-but, she said!!” Jeebus.

    Watching CNN right now… Sen. Obama will speak soon. The funny part…McGovern is on stage with him in S.D. Someone please please pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease get a picture of them together and post it everywhere!!

  49. Using CNN’s turnout projection of 325K-425K, at 68-31, vote get range would be 120K -157K.

  50. Charles, where?

  51. If Hillary was as smart as Obama, she’ll take her name off the ballot in SD and MT.

    That way she can just clean up afterwards with the DNC awarding her some of Obamas votes.

  52. Oddly enough, I started getting mail from McCain again last year. I was a McCain supporter for a few days in 2000 — between SC and (oddly enough) the MI Primary — when McCain was our best bet to derail the George W Bush campaign.

    I unsubscribed after that, but last year the mail started coming again.

  53. Obama speaking in South Dakota declares that the American people are sick of the old politics and want honesty and Straight Talk. LOL

  54. McCain is “running for George Bush’s fourth term.” heh.

  55. LeeAnne, I can’t tell you the exact poll, buit it said that 79% of AAs would vote for Clinton if she’s the nominee. This was last month I think.

  56. Someone on Talk Left says judging by what has come in so far, they expect less than 300K votes, do you think that’s true?

  57. Yes Dot I am sure in their wisdom they would vote the same way. More likely they’d give all delegates to Obama.

    What seems clear is there is no attempt for true unity. A local blogger on my site more or less said if I was a Democrat I should leave the party and if I wasn’t to shut the hell up.

    Everyday I am more and more convinced that Hillary should make an independent run. Its clear that the DNC will do everything in its power to sabotage her nomination. I have no doubt if she was winning popular and delegates, the DNC would still give it to Obama. At breakfast I mentioned a Hillary Indie run, and was told told hell I’d vote for her. 33% of Democrats want her to run as an Indie, and the Rasmussen poll has her at 22% against McCain and Nobama. There are times when history calls, and this is one of those times.

  58. For those who have the stomach:

    Watch MessNBC announcing HRC’s big win in PR

    The whole thing last only 1:44 but Keith Obamamann tries very hard to pour dog droppings all over that victory.

  59. dar1a g, that made me laugh (gag) too. Such irony.

    Everything he says sounds like classic doublespeak, doesn’t it?
    Unity = Division, Change = Same ol’ same ol’, Hope = Fear, Black = White

  60. Henry, the arguement is there for Hillary to become an Independent cadidate. Gallup, Rasmussen and all the major political polls indicate that Hillary has the numbers to win a GE.

    WHY NOT? If Ross Perot can do it, so can she. She is the forst nominee to get the most votes in any primary. That’s historic and foretelling.

  61. “Young women never understand sexism. It is not until they enter the work force”

    So right, I remember in the late 60’s in NZ, I couldn’t even apply for the many jobs posted on the many “M” pages of the newspaper, only those on the few “F” pages.

    As a kid raised to believe I would be the next Da Vinci, that sure woke me up! And RW talk radio railed against the equal pay vote. It is not as overt as back then, though.

    And racism sucks too. 13% of black men are in prison at any one time.

    However, I don’t think this primary is about race v gender.

    I really believe the media Hillaryhate is corporate. She would bring about massive legislative change in clean energy policy. There are vested interests against that change.

    So they run a puppet, like they ran GWB.

    Obamas debate response that he wouldn’t bother his lordly head with policy: he’d have people for that papershuffling. That was a dogwhistle call to his Cheney.

    In March 2007, Obama cosponsored McCain-Lieberman, the nuke power giveaway bill.

    In April, the CEO of Exelon gave him his campaign startup money.

    **Since 2003, executives and employees of Exelon, which is based in Illinois, have contributed at least $227,000 to Mr. Obama’s campaigns for the United States Senate and for president. Two top Exelon officials, Frank M. Clark, executive vice president, and John W. Rogers Jr., a director, are among his largest fund-raisers.

    Another Obama donor, John W. Rowe, chairman of Exelon, is also chairman of the Nuclear Energy Institute, the nuclear power industry’s lobbying group, based in Washington. Exelon’s support for Mr. Obama far exceeds its support for any other presidential candidate.**

    Partners from the Atlanta-based law firm Alston & Bird donated $33,000 to Obama in the first 90 days of 2007.

    Alston & Bird has a large lobbying division in Washington. It billed its clients nearly $3.9 million in 2006, ranking 35th among Washington lobbyists. Alston boasts on its website that it offers clients “unique experience with how policy is made” and knows “the people who make it: government and agency officials; members of Congress and their staff.”

    Daschle joined Bob Dole (R) at Alston & Bird in 2003, and both now are Obama advisors through The Bipartisan Policy Center.

    …Obama’s biggest single source of corporate money – $160,000 – came from executives at Exelon Corp., the nation’s largest nuclear power provider, and its subsidiary, Commonwealth Edison, an Illinois utility.

    the CEO of Exelon is on the advisory board of The Bipartisan Policy Center

    Exelon spent $500,000 to influence policy in Washington last year.

  65. Thanks, that let’s me shut off CNN and watch Star Trek: Voyager DVDs instead…
    :)

  66. From Taylor Marsh, Ken McClintock, Clinton superd from PR, said at least 500K turnout.

  67. Capt. Janeway was my favorite Star Trek captain!

  68. It not only sounds like doublespeak it sounds like.. um..one of the phrases most associated with McCain.

    I am getting a little absurd here I know, but it would be a hilarious irony if the Democratic standard bearer of Change and Unity ended up echoing George W Bush while the conservative Republican continued to be portrayed by the media as an independent and a maverick.

  69. Actually, McClintock said he thinks there will be at least 500K. CNN said 325-425K.

  70. If they keep exit polling race and gender this party is done.

    I think the real solution is for people to re-learn the hard lesson that a coalition means making alliances with people whose interests are not identical to yours – whose interests are in conflict with yours.

    We have not been handling this in terms of alliance-building. We – or they, the Democratic party, I should say – has been handling this with the usual “vote the way we tell you to”, which is now called Unity (because rebranding is all you need to do to make a bad concept into a good one, just ask W.). The Democrats have failed to recognize that the only reason people kept voting Dem was because there was still a little faith left over from back in the days when there were people doing real coalition-building work.

    The classic negotiation example are the two people fighting about the orange, and the mediator will chop it in half without ever taking the time to learn that one side wants the peel for baking and the other side wants the juice. Well, the Democratic party at least in my lifetime doesn’t even chop the orange in half. It just decides which claimant deserves the orange and then blames the other party for not being worthy of the orange, and then it can’t figure out why the ones who never get the orange don’t recognize the superiority of their wisdom, and finally they say it just goes to show they were right all along: some people don’t deserve oranges anyway. And thus a feedback loop is born.

  71. sorry about doubling posts above

  72. Riverdaughter, you are a truly gifted writer, and right up my alley. I loved this post!

    Feel the power–we have it.

  73. The Headline in the LA Times today is Clinton wins in Puerto Rico by a landslide! Now, this is the first positive headline for one of her victories in a long time. Does this mean the media thinks it no longer matters or that they are starting to see that Obama is a loser, and a sore one at that?

    I can’t ever vote for McCain. Although I have become unaffiliated, I will sit the election out if Obama is the nominee. I don’t want to become a Republican after all the damage they have done to this country, and I hope we don’t forget that. We can form a third party. A strong one. We need to look back in history for a party name or we need to come up with something that does not have bad connotations (like United Front might sound nice, but historically has a BAD past). I am very serious about this. If not this group now, then who?
