    • And The Mass Evictions are ON
      So, the evictions moratorium expired Saturday at midnight. Over a quarter of renters are behind in some states, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities think-tank. Southern states are some of the worst affected, though some 16 percent of US households owed rent — about double the amount before the pandemic. This wasn’t necessary, but the choi […]

Curses! Foiled again.

Turkana at TheLeftCoaster sees Markos’ Haka and raises one himself:

Obama bloggers want to scare Clinton supporters and Clinton donors. They want to create an aura of inevitability for Obama such that any Clinton victory will be seen as a theft. This makes Clinton look petty and dishonest, and her supporters, at best, delusional. But facts are stubborn things, and the facts are that such a framing is simply inaccurate. And these same Obama bloggers then claim that it is Clinton and her supporters who are dividing the Party! And they wonder why Clinton supporters are so angry. They wonder why people who do not support Clinton but simply care about honesty are so angry!

Read the whole thing. You’ll be glad you did because you’ll be ready do the Hillary haka and beat your chest back at them.

  1. Does Markos ever wonder why, after these several months of supposed Obama “inevitability,” after all the MSM and blogosphere criticism of Clinton for not crawling under a rock, there are still so many voters who want to vote for Clinton?

    Doesn’t the will of those people mean anything to him?

    We already know, of course, that the will of FLA and MI voters means nothing. Isn’t that bad enough, without attempting to nullify the will of Pa and IN and NC voters too?

  2. One of my favorite shows in on Animal Planet – “Escape to Chimp Eden.” Eugene Cussons, rescue director at Jane Goodall Institute is an expert on rehabilitating captive/orphaned chimps so that they can return to the wild. Eugene is young, ernest and down to earth. He has to deal with chimp display behavior (haka):

    Baring teeth
    Thumping chest
    Squaring shoulders
    Swinging arms
    Hooting

    Eugene’s patience and determination are wonderful to see. Goodall’s benign spirit surrounds the whole enterprise. It’s a comforting, enlightening program.

    I wish Eugene could come over here to rehabilitate the Boyz. Watch the show and keep that image in mind.

    Go, Hillary!

  3. litigatormom: And if Obama is so sure fired inevitable, why does he continue to attack Hillary and thus alienate still further her supporters. If he’s got the nod, shouldn’t he turn to trying to heal the party and offer an olive branch? The reason he attacks is that he knows he is not inevitable.

  5. Yeah, if Obama were so surefire inevitable, why would he be so afraid of re-votes in FLA and MI? He would welcome them, because he would be so sure that this time around he would win them.

  6. Remember the first time Obama was inevitable, and they started telling Hillary to drop out? It was right after Iowa and right before Hillary won New Hampshire. And then they did it again after South Carolina. And before Ohio, Texas, and Rhode Island. It’s getting really old at this point.

  7. Note: Turkana is a he, not a she.

  8. Whoops! Corrected.

  9. You know, this technique is exactly what Bush and his surrogates did after the FL vote–just kept saying they were ahead and Gore was trying to steal the election!

    Drove me crazy then….

  10. jawbone – Look at his history of elections – Obama was the only one on the ballot in when he won his state senate seat because he had everyone else disqualified. So now they are trying to tell us that MIchigan should not count because Clinton said in an interview that it doesn’t count, but gave a really great reason for keeping her name on the ballot. You would think the Democratic Party would want to reward that type of thinking.

    As I have mentioned elsewhere, why would anyone go to the polls and cast a ballot if they thought it wouldn’t count for anything? Why did the state of Michigan allow those ballots to be counted, and certified? Why won’t Obama just admit it was a mistake to take his name off the ballot ? Why did the Obama campaign encourage people to vote on the undecided line?

    I know I can trust McCain to be exactly who he is. Great. He’ll never get my vote for anything. I don’t trust a word Obama or his campaign or an unofficial spokesperson or some supporter who is in no way affiliated with the campaign says about anything at this point. Obama will do anything to win. He’s already demonstrated that in the past. That’s why you hear the loud angry threatening talking points from his supporters. They cover up obvious flaws. They signal exactly what Obama is already guilty of, or is planning to pull off. Not gonna work.

    You stated in very few words one major reason I will not vote for Obama. There are so many more. But, I’m voting for Clinton. Next paycheck, I donate another $100 bucks to the Clinton campaign. Will it win the election for Clinton. Maybe not, but I know when they write about this election they will mention that there were some people who took the time to evaluate the policy proposals of the candidates and many chose Clinton for that reason.

  11. The problem is they’re creating a false reality for themselves, one which is easy to tweak.

    As much as they’re trying to troll Clinton supporters, they’re trolling themselves.

    Think of the US army in Iraq, everyone can see the mess, but the propaganda has forced the mediocre into believing what isn’t true, think of Cheney, and Bush, the stupid and incompetent unable to lead a war, again, boys who xerox can’t win, can’t close the deal.

    Why?

    Just step back, and watch, Markso and crew are simply trolling themselves.

    Look at the process, the thinking processes, I mean, it almost seems if they’re on speed, or something.
