Rescue Mission!

According to our reliable sources, Snidely, er, the DNC has been pressuring Hillary  to pay her campaign debt or it will force her to release her delegates or have a merely symbolic role at the convention.  Originally, they were going to give her til the end of the month to pay the rent, then they moved it up to July 15.  Now, it’s imminent.  Drat!  Hillary must be flipping some of the Superdelegates or the DNC wouldn’t be so dastardly.

Oh, heck, sure they would. They’re like that.

Once again, we are asking you to do the impossible and reach down into your pocket, waaayyy down where the lint grows, and pull up a couple bucks for Hillary that you might have spent on that iced double caramel latte.  If you can throw in a fifty, you can get the winning T-Shirt from Chelsea’s T-Shirt design contest from earlier in the campaign. 

We were so successful last weekend that we knocked off some$6Million (conservative estimate).  The DNC must be getting nervous that Dudley Do-Right is going to show up in time.  One more push ought to do it and free our heroine from the clutches of the evil Whiplash and make Donna Brazile hiss, “Curses!  Foiled again!”.

  1. All the mighty PUMAs, let’s free Hillary.

  2. Dig the story of PUMA taking Hillary out of debt.

    http://digg.com/politics/BREAKING_NEWS_PUMA_taking_Hillary_Clinton_out_of_Debt

  3. It feels good to give.

    Hillary 2008!

  4. Carol I went back and checked comments on the older posts and nope didn’t post about my contribution until today so put that $50 in the tally!

  5. Sent in an additional $10. Carol, do you need the info from the receipts for this donation and the $50 earlier today?

  6. What ridiculous reason is the DNC giving for linking her debt to her role at the Covention? What does one have to do with the other? They are just dimwits, it makes our job so much easier.

    Which Republican (Graham?) said something stupid today about the poor economy “being all in our minds?” It gave BO an opportunity to look pro-active, because he jumped on it. Some of these Republicans (many) are just as stupid.

    WE WANT HILLARY!!!

  7. $50 with pleasure (and HRC hope!). And the T-shirt is an added surprise.

  8. Hi Riverdaughter, I love that cartoon. It’s very appropriate for this post.

    I was poking around Google to see if I could find anything about our online fundraising progress (I didn’t) But I found this Blog post from HillBuzz. I hope it’s OK for me to share a link to a REALLY creative Hillary Fundraiser:

    You Know How They Have Carnivals All Summer? — THIS is an astonishing post. You’ve got to stop by to see the amazing rides at this carnival.

    Riverdaughter, It’s a particularly appropriate link for you since you’re actually on vacation — and I hope you’re having a wonderful time!

    I guess I wanted the t-shirt and to spite Tweety. I don’t think this whole convention role has anything to do with debt. that is so illogical. but it is the democrat party for god sake.

    This has to be the strangest thing that we are paying down her debt when there is this other candidate trying to win the general election.

  20. Puma-SF – was that a new donation?

  21. Fuzzy: Not buying what?

  22. ben, ben, ben snap out of it! He is not trying to win! He is trying to lose and is being quite successful at it!

    ben carlson $50

  23. (meant to say “is really going to hurt” not “sireally going to hurt”)

    Fuzzy bear is leaning leaning hard i want tochoke the clinton debt relief system with PUMA Dollars

    Obama knows each of those dollars is a vote he is not going to get!

    fuzzybeargville

  24. donna brazile does NOT have a curly mustache! you take that back!

  25. Carol, I donated $50 today. Let’s make the dastardly villains regret messing with our candidate.

  26. ben carlson: People underestimate the power of spite.

    Also, you know who should win the general–if not Hillary, John McCain.

    The only thing I wish Will Bower had said today was that we are giving Hillary money to show how strong support for her remains in this country. With Obama and the DNC going down, it doesn’t hurt to show her fundraising prowess.

  27. Dean acting concerned that he may have backed the wrong horse….to avoid a PUma High colonic…

    Dr dean is a coward!

    fuzzybeargville

    And ben’s fisty ups Keith’s dosage another 50 mg’s I think he is goin into a coma

    come on someone donna needs another soaking in the boiling oil

  28. Do they even realize how fucking crooked this makes them look? Seriously, are they just mentally damaged or something?

    They set a hurdle in front of her, and she meets it. Then, they spontaneously decide to put another one in front of her — she meets it. Before it was, if she wins PA by double digits, she’ll be a credible nominee. Okay, she did it. If soe wins the states she’s said she’ll win, she’ll be a credible nominee. She did THAT.

    Now, if she clears her debt by endo f July, she … wait, by the end of next week … shit, by the end of this week! IF SHE CLEARS IT BY TWO WEEKS AGO!!! NYAH! THERE! YOU LOSE GO AWAY!

    And they fucking turn around and go, “How do we make people not feel cheated?” After pulling horseshit like this?! YOU DON’T! You don’t make people not feel cheated after you’ve turned yourselves into knots TO CHEAT THEM!

    Jesus! this is repugnant!

    Sorry, just had to do a little loss of temper there. GAWD, this PISSES ME OFF. They are SUCH FUCKING ASSHOLES. I cannot fathom any so-called “liberal” who can watch this fucking train wreck of corruption and whine at me about how McCain will be worse, so it’s my duty as a liberal to grease up and let the Unity Pony fuck me. WHAT?! This is insanty. This is just fucking insanity. Pantsuit Amazon gets another fifty tonight.

  29. Okay, now my partner is threatening to take my card away. She thinks I’m a bit looney over Hillary. Gave $25 last week, and here is another $50.

    One Response to “Brazile, Obama Plot to Keep Hillary off Convention Ballot”
    JERZYERNIE, on July 10th, 2008 at 4:36 pm Said:
    Just another Crazy Uncle? It has been widly reported that Michelle Obama practically grew up in Jesse Jacksons house,and is best friends with one of Jesse Jacksons daughters! Jesse Jr is one of Obamas campaign directors, and one of Jesse Jackson kids is one of Barack Obamas daughters god parents.Do not be so Niave people,This is the Politics of Chicago and the Politice of Obama!We are all aware that the Obama Campaign uses the race card anytime it is convenient for the Obama Campaign, as it usually always benefit’s none other then the Obama campaign.This is just another example of another long time Obama cohort { Reverend Wright, Father Pfleger, and now Jesse Jackson } making racial statements to deflect attention away from a very problematic time in the Obama campaign. By Jesse Jackson taking this hit in the media,he is getting all the media’s attention off of all the talk of Obama breaking his major campaign promises, in particular The FISA Bill, which Obama had promised his supporters that he would against and decided to vote for the FISA BILL.Yes he has broken another major campaign promise, and has had a very tough week or two, as he has been taking a lot of heat from the media, and even his own supporters. To “deflect” the attention away from Obamas political inexperience, and his FISA Vote yesterday, It is just a little to convenient for The Obama Campaign, headed by Jesse Jackson JR. by the way, that comments made by Jesse Jackson Sr. made Sunday suddenly broke yesterday.Just after Obamas key vote supporting President Bush’s FISA Bill that had been threatening to break even Obamas staunchest of supporters. As of yesterday Obama was being criticized daily by media outlets and supporters alike, about the many flip flops made by the Candidate of Hope and Change, and now even Jesse Jr. came to Obamas defense “Ripping” Jesse Sr’s words, thus successfully deflecting the media attention away from Obamas Hard move to the right! Well played Camp Obama. Now all the pundit’s are talking about is Jesse Jackson not Barack Obama.This is not the Politics of Change, nor is it mere Politics as usual, This is the Politics of Obama. If anyone would like to see how deeply Jesse Jackson is planted in the Obama campaign, go to C-Span and watch the JUNE 29 TH Rainbow Coalition tapes, where you can watch Jesse Jackson and other African American leaders planning the first 30 day’s of The Obama presidency.To bad that it has not been reported how Jesse Jackson Jr. has been treating any elected delegates that did not support Obama thru out this election season.

  60. SimoFish – here- I see my name listed above. I have $100.00 coming in tonight to help retire her debt.

  61. einNC-you just dunked donna Brasile 2 times and gave old Kieth Oberman a nice 100 mg jolt on his meds hes in a complete stupor and drooling wish I had a camera-this would be a Youtube classic oh my kieth just ate a white castle off the floor-so david hasselhoff!

    fuzzybeargville

    carol what is the total?

  62. This is from seatourdelegates.com

    The Cause
    Our right to vote. Men fought and died for it during the Revolutionary War. Women and African-Americans marched to be included in it. Today, it is being taken away from 2.3 million people because their state legislatures scheduled their primaries to be held earlier than the rules established by the Democratic National Committee would allow. The voters had no say in this scheduling conflict, yet they are being unfairly punished because of it.

    These much-heralded rules, specifically DNC Delegate Selection Rule 11A [PDF], states the following:

    “No meetings, caucuses, conventions or primaries which constitute the first determining stage in the presidential nomination process (the date of the primary in primary states, and the date of the first tier caucus in caucus states) may be held prior to the first Tuesday in February or after the second Tuesday in June in the calendar year of the national convention. Provided, however, that the Iowa precinct caucuses may be held no earlier than 22 days before the first Tuesday in February; that the Nevada first-tier caucuses may be held no earlier than 17 days before the first Tuesday in February; that the New Hampshire primary may be held no earlier than 14 days before the first Tuesday in February; and that the South Carolina primary may be held no earlier than 7 days before the first Tuesday in February. In no instance may a state which scheduled delegate selection procedures on or between the first Tuesday in February and the second Tuesday in June 1984 move out of compliance with the provisions of this rule.”

    Thus, the rules were not only broken by Florida and Michigan, but also by Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. Iowa held their caucus on January 3, 2008 instead of January 14. New Hampshire held their primary on January 8, 2008 instead of January 22. South Carolina held their primary on January 26, 2008 instead of January 29.

    The penalty for violating Rule 11A, according to DNC Delegate Selection Rule 20C1a [PDF], states:

    “In the event the Delegate Selection Plan of a state party provides or permits a meeting, caucus, convention or primary which constitutes the first determining stage in the presidential nominating process to be held prior to or after the dates for the state as provided in Rule 11 of these rules, or in the event a state holds such a meeting, caucus, convention or primary prior to or after such dates, the number of pledged delegates elected in each category allocated to the state pursuant to the Call for the National Convention shall be reduced by fifty (50%) percent, and the number of alternates shall also be reduced by fifty (50%) percent. In addition, none of the members of the Democratic National Committee and no other unpledged delegate allocated pursuant to Rule 8.A. from that state shall be permitted to vote as members of the state’s delegation. In determining the actual number of delegates or alternates by which the state’s delegation is to be reduced, any fraction below .5 shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number, and any fraction of .5 or greater shall be rounded up to the next nearest whole number.”

    According to Rule 20C1a, Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Michigan, and Florida should have had their delegates reduced by 50%. However, Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina were not penalized at all to protect their first-in-the-nation status, while Michigan and Florida were stripped of all their delegates. Thus, the DNC is applying the rules arbitrarily.

    We, the Black Sheep Delegation, are committed to seeing that the contests held by Michigan and Florida are recognized and that the votes are counted prior to the end of the 2008 Democratic primary season. Count the votes now, or don’t count on us to vote in November.

    and that doesnt stand for Fuzzybeargville

  67. new to the site. just gave $25 to hillary to help retire her debt, though i did it before i saw this post about the DNC.
    meanwhile, what are those sources of information? (ryan also asked a few comments ago.) are there links for people to look at?

  68. orange,

    i’m skeptical about Jackson doing this on purpose. it’s been reported that the gaffe almost went unnoticed and was only caught by an intern

    http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/news/tv/la-et-jackson11-2008jul11,0,1647731.story


    The scathing remarks first came to the attention of an employee working the overnight shift Sunday, who transcribed the tape as part of training for the network’s ongoing digital conversion. Otherwise, “it potentially would have not been discovered,” Shine (FOX’s VP for programming) said.

    the remarks were made on Sunday. i don’t think they could count on the remarks not being noticed on Sunday and only getting play on Wed. if it were intentionally designed to draw attention away from Obama’s FISA vote, Jackson wouldn’t have the remarks on Sunday. also, it’s been reported for quite a while that Jackson was miffed that Obama was distancing himself from Jackson and other black leaders. (SNL even did a cartoon about it.)

    i do wonder if Jackson did this as a way to help Obama move to the center, though.

  69. Contributed $50.00

  70. sorry, my first line should read “i’m sceptical about Jackson doing this to draw attention away from Obama’s FISA vote.” as i say at the end, Jackson may have said it as a way to distance himself from Obama (which might benefit Obama or Jackson.)

  71. I Hate Dean and Donna with a Capital “F”!

    i love that line!

  72. Carol — sorry – let you know what??

  73. SimoFish – when you make the donation. Thanks.

  74. One day someone is going to write a very interesting book on how the Dems ended up with the worst possible nominee in a year that should have been theirs. (If Obama loses in 2008 I expect to see such a book next year; otherwise we will have to wait until he is done reviving Republican fortunes as President.)

    There are many amazing elements of to the story; the strange bitterness of the Democratic establishment towards the only two-term Democratic President since FDR; the way in which so much of the liberal blogosphere tossed out their honesty and credibility in their rush to annoint the Unity Pony; the bizarre nature of the nominating process etc.

    But ultimately the story I think will be about race, and more specifically how the Democrats allowed identity politics to trump any sort of rational decsion making. I’m talking here not about the 85% of the black vote that went to Obama (though without that he would not be the nominee). That was unfortunate but understandable. Instead I refer to the way his skin color induced magical thinking among so many white voters. Reading the comments of countless Obamabots it was clear they saw his race as something that somehow in itself would undo much of the damage of the Bush years, at home and abroad.

    A white candidate with Obama’s thin resume would never have been taken seriously by anyone. But thanks to magical thinking (and a MSM suffering from CDS and a DNC helping to rig the outcome) the Dems have nominated someone whose sole accomplishment in life has been his own advancement, no sooner taking on one role than sprinting ahead for the next one without ever leaving a mark behind in the process.

    And a man whose associates are a bizarre mix of black nationalists, Christian fundamentalists, Chicago School economic libertarians, the corrupt Democratic Chicago political machine, and oil companies execs.

    Yet somehow his having an absent black father turned him into a “transformative agent of change.”

    As I said, I can’t wait to read the book. It will certainly be better to read than it has been to live through.

  75. Sass, I feel the same way. I don’t think Jackson Sr. did this on purpose. It just doesn’t smell orchestrated. This sort of infighting can only make Obama look bad, like it’s turning into some sort of inter-family catfight.

  78. oh — you can count it — a friend of mine is buying me the t-shirts as a “gift” — since I have given $4600.00 already. She insisted that she buy them for me. What a great friend. We all need friends like that. So count it in the total.

  79. Just donated $25 to The Woman.

    You might be interested in the email I sent to the DNC yesterday after receiving their to me incredibly offensively email offer of a free trip to Denver to see the Bright Light come down from Above. Here it is (I was, and am, pissed.)

    July 9, 2008

    To Whom It May Concern:

    Yesterday, being a long-time registered Democrat and frequent online contributor to various Dem campaigns, I received, in the inevitable course of human events, an e-mail under your e-letterhead, signed by David Plouffe, Sen. Obama’s Campaign Mgr., asking for a donation of $5.00 or more by July 31st.

    In the tone of an ad offering a raffle ticket for a cruise to Aruba combined with a come-on to meet a real, live singing star, the copy said that I might then have a chance to be one of 10 who’d be flown free to the Denver convention, to see the candidate’s acceptance speech at a huge (as yet undetermined) stadium, and to meet “Barack” backstage.

    So the Senator’s acceptance speech will be free to whoever acts soon enough to get tickets, in a big outdoor venue instead of in the smaller convention hall before the delegates. This is described in this e-mail as meaning that Denver will be an “Open Convention”.

    Stadium-venue, free-admittance delivery of a speech which accepts a nomination arranged by the current ruling faction of the Democratic Party to be fore-ordained does not mean that the preceeding convention has been “open”.

    The actions (both public and sequestered) of the Rules and Bylaws Committee in Michigan guaranteed that the convention will not be open. The proposal—perhaps not yet confirmed—that Senator Clinton’s name will not even be put in nomination on the first ballot, a courtesy of long standing to other candidates, is insulting confirmation of the Closure of this gathering. You could hold Senator Obama’s acceptance speech in the middle of a 15,000-acre, fenceless Iowa cornfield, or in my backyard, and it still wouldn’t be an open convention.

    I don’t like being addressed, and treated, the way Target Demographics are treated by advertisers.

    It is true that I am white, middle-class, female, and over 60. That, in Davids Axelrod and Plouffe’s eyes, would make me a bitter old feminist who has yet to “get over it”, but who also has “no place else to go”, and therefore profitably cullable from the Clinton database.

    On the other hand, I am a graphic designer and copywriter by current trade, which I imagine puts me in the “creative class”. I ought, by the wisdom of this campaign, to be the type who grasps the Hope and Change Gestalt in a holistic way, and who knows that the current rightward shift of the candidate’s rhetoric (and voting) is only a campaign feint, that he will return to his true progressiveness next January.

    I do not so grasp, or know. I am interested in facts – like the fact that Sen. Obama has no section on women’s issues on his website, or the fact that he was unwilling to put in any substantial time learning how to legislate in either the Illinois Senate or the US Senate before laying claim to the Presidency of the goddamn United States. I am interested in policy – like the impracticability of non-universal health care coverage, or the unConstitutional presidential power grab built into the new FISA law that Senator Obama voted for. I am interested in the power of the President of the U.S. to destroy, wreck, and subvert, on a national and worldwide scale, as demonstrated during the last 8 crony-rotten years. I consider many of Sen. Obama’s choices and past actions to show a tendency for power-consolidation that is scarcely surprising in someone who has benefitted as he has from the traditions of Chicago politics.

    I am not, nor ever will be, one of the Hillraisers who are balking at the Obama campaign’s approaches, as described in July 7th’s Wall Street Journal – I can’t threaten you with potential millions withheld.

    I do have “another place to go” this coming November. My own living room. I am not alone in this. You would do well to keep all this in mind, and so would Sen. Obama.

    Yours very truly,
    etc.

  80. Tdraicer, white liberals have always used color issues not to really help or support or (god help them) understand people of color, but only to win points against other white liberals. They don’t really care about helping black people or any other people of color. They just want to win arguments with the person in the next suburban McMansion over or score against another parent in their kid’s play group. Or the other upper-class kids in their college classes. It’s really gross. They don’t care.

  81. Janis / Sass — I disagree – I think it has Chicago politics written all over it. What do the Jacksons have to lose? Nothing. Jesse is yesterday’s news – his son can blast him – it’s all in the family. The grand plan is for Barry to get elected. They’ll do and say anything.

  87. a quick note to add my $50 contribution at 8:50 this evening

    Will try to catch up with comments later this evening.

  88. Just found the rules – they cannot keep her from being on the first ballot. Not sure why this is not being made more clear to all of her supporters, but by my interpretation, unless Ms. Brazile or Ms. Pelosi become the Permanent Chair and then refuse to hear others in the room, Hillary will certainly be nominated.

    Here’s a link. Hopefully there is a lawyer who has bellied up to the bar tonight and can interpret for us:

    Comment by HARP | 2008-07-10 19:44:12

    Good News

    Senator Clinton’s delegates have been coordinating on their own, however, which they have every right to do. They are supporting one another and attempting to prepare a nominating petition to be used at the convention if the usual rules apply. Of course none of Senator Clinton’s delegates want to put her in an awkward position, either during the current negotiations or at the party convention itself.

    Throughout the day, the Clinton delegates have been preparing a petition, which requires the collection of a certain number of delegate signatures from different state delegations. Then, they need a safe place to send their signatures. It is with real honor that I tell readers of this space that the delegates have asked me to consider to accepting their signatures and to keep the paperwork safe until the time when it can be used to aid Senator Clinton. The delegates know I will guard that paperwork with my life. They also know that I will not release it without being sure that any such release will not harm Senator Clinton, who I continue to hold in the highest esteem.

    Yeah, it was mean of her to vote the way they wanted. Now they’re feeling all squinky about their chosen one.

    Bless their hearts, they’re idiots.

  126. I am willing to pay Donna B for a seat close up to Obama in Denver. Since she is making all the “seating arrangements” for this event, I want to be close enough that when I hurl it will have the desired effect.

    And if Donna is doing the “seating arrangements” I am sure she can secure a position on Bridezillas as soon as her hatchet job has concluded. They are always looking for somebody over there to calm the bride down and who better than Donna B?

  137. Carol, I gave 50 earlier today, did you get that?

  138. I think if the Democratic Party pulls this number on Clinton and does not let her be placed in nomination and her earned delegates recorded then that will definitely be it for me, forever for the Democratic Party. I think there are likely to be 18 million very pissed off Dems and I think we should form a special group within PUMA and JustSayNODEAL with the clear aim of doing everything we can to get these votes cast and if that does not happen then get pledges from that 18 million person army to not vote for Obama—anyone but. Such a disenfranchisement has never, ever happened in my memory which spans more than 50 years of Democratic presidential conventions. I have no problem with an acclamation (even though I don’t think Obama has really won this) but to not recognize all the candidates who earned delegates and how many they earned is to make a mockery of the whole process—why should anyone vote if they have no assurance that their vote will not be at least officially tabulated. This is not about the candidates; this is about the voters. But for Brazile, Obama and crowd, it is always just about Obama. His grandiosity is the grandiosity of a profound addict. Maybe Bush will leave a pipe for him.

  139. have a good walk casey –

    hey annie em Obama is filling in for donna during her break you get to dunk “the one” but he’s really looking twice as parboiled as donna brazile in half the time…Ithink it is his thin skin…

  144. Pat – it will be easy to get a seat near Obama in Denver.

    We will all be watching him drive his Chevrolet SUV away with Michelle in the front seat shooting gang signs at us while the girls cry “President Hillary WILL BE OUR ROLE MODEL AFTERALL!”

    Moments later, his ex-Secret Service staff will take him and Michelle into custody to stand trial for their financial dealings in Illinois.

    Don’t worry, CPS will find the appropriate family members to raise the kids.

  157. Wow–$6k already!

    The Bots aren’t making history; they are> history!

  158. What did HRC raise in June?

    I occasionally have a panic attack that goes something like this. The RNC and Repugs in general know they are in deep do-do. They figure Obama is so bad that the best thing to do is just let him be elected POTUS and the results will be so bad that the DNC and Democrats in general are destroyed, in jail or all hiding under a huge, giant nationwide bus.

  159. HAH! $50!

  160. Carol,

    Sorry, just checked in… mine was just one $100.00, not two. Thanks!

  161. I think his June numbers are down because his money was coming from Repubs who wanted the weaker opponent. That would also explain how even though he outspent her by miles, he could barely keep his lead. Especially looking at that graphic that was posted here last night, showing the steady decline (with a few spikes) in his website hits since SDT.

  162. OK, got one!

    aarrrggghhh.

  188. Leslie former democrat: There is NO amount too small. Believe that. Hillary appreciates it and so does everyone here.

  189. We must remember that this DNC imposed time table is illegal and since their candidate is a wimp with bush ears I expect he will cave to public pressure and this deadline thing will die a death like the Obama seal remember “vero possumus” or maybe HOUND?

    these guys are nothing to be afraid of- fuzzybear alone would take out a good number of them-

    have you evertried to breathe witha bear sitting on you?

    fuzzybeargville-no longer letting Donna Dean or Barak dictate to me what I have to do….I am done with them~!

  190. dakinikat,

    sounds like it was a bad month for Obama. wonder how they’re going to pay for Invesco Field?

  191. sophie: I’m on facebook mostly to watch my teenage daughter and her older sister … plus lots of my students there, but Will Bower is there and a several other Puma sites including one run by Amy Goldman …

  192. sassy … hopefully, they won’t be able too!!!

  193. Love Kathy and the Bears! Poor Woz does not have a clue.

  194. I’m on facebook mostly to watch my teenage daughter and her older sister …

    lol. that’s why i’m not on Facebook.

    i know i’d probably check out my daughter’s page and her friends’ pages. that seems intrusive to me. i don’t have good self-control when it comes to things like that.

  195. Hi everyone, sassy, I have been wondering the same thing. It was announced just as we were discussing the money problems that the DNC has been having paying for the convention….what am I missing? Is this a private “donation” from the Mile High City?

  196. I’m on facebook, too. I’ve got a ton of Hillary/McCain people on my friends list.

  197. fuzzy -has to sleep because I am helping my friend who cnnot drive this weekend he is still getting used to his new siezure control medication and cant drive.

    If (sorry when)we hit $ 7500.00 tonight I will probably be asleep. Do not worry I will ensure every body gets to enjoy Dean finally getting his comeupance.

    We will do it tommorrow night at the cocktail party if we hit $ 10,000.00 nancy gets a fuzzybear haircut and shave-may let carol take care of that one as a reward for her good work here.

    night all fuzzy is tired

  200. As a teenager, I’ve learned that the best thing you can do for your mother is be honest. Then, she’ll trust you and never actually want to look into what you get into. Then again, I’ve always been utterly trustworthy. I can lie to many people, but it’s always been me and ma against the world so I’ve made it a point to never be dishonest with her. My journals, blogs, and profiles are an open book to her. She knows what I’m like.

  209. My fear is that they will force her to go on his ticket as VP if everything else fails. I fervently hope she won’t do it. Is there something PUMA should be doing to send that signal to her — that she should not do it? Would she do it? I know our focus now is to get her on the ballot at the convention and try to get them to let the chips fall where they may with the roll call vote. I am not very optimistic about that happening and especially reversing the course and I worry about this half fix of a VP position.

  210. Love you, too, Fuzzy!

    My mom made me who I am. She is the reason I swoon over William Jefferson Clinton. She taught me what a tall glass of sex looks like. Looks like the 42nd President.

  211. carolyn,

    i’m pretty sure that donating the use of a building would be considered a donation and subject to the contribution limits. i’m not sure how much it would cost to rent out Invesco Field for a day (or maybe longer if they need special security, etc. that takes a while to install).

    it just seems odd that the Dems can’t even pay for what they had already scheduled then they add this other big expense.

    regencyg, i trust my daughter completely. but i’m still nosy! lol

    i’m not sure if she’d mind if i read her page or not. she’s always been very private. trustworthy but private.

  213. regency: You are now officially in the Time Out corner until further notice.

  214. pm317: Truth is that ticket would still sink because somebody would start reminding everybody that it would still be BO’s hand on the button while Hillary is playing footsie with Bill at Blair House. That is not a frakking solution.

  215. ps regencyg, if i didn’t trust my daughter, i probably would read her page!

  219. Carol, Fuzzy, Pat, REgency…aw, the whole gang – thanks for a terrific night!!!! We did good. Good night and sweet dreams (of Hillary in Denver on stage delivering a speech to her superdelegates).

  220. Nene, thank you! You’ll be added to the list as soon as our resident accountant gets back. Thank you so much. Every little bit helps.

    Good night Elixir!

  221. pm317

    Don’t worry, they would rather go down in flames than admit they need our girl Hillary. They won’t put her on the ticket. It’s not just her they want to drive out of the party, but all she represents and her base.

    The fact that (see Heidi Li’s Potpourri) they are negotiating her convention role this month says in big fat smokin’ letters that he won’t pick her. Otherwise, why negotiate her ‘role’?

    BUT… having said that, Pres and VP are voted on separately on the GE ballot. Can you imagine if she was Barky’s running mate and McCain won Pres and she won VP? Lol l might die laughing.

  222. We have Hillary on the first ballot. Now we need these supers to wake up. Fax, email, and write them. Note: Hillary won these states so they have no excuse.

    I cannot envision her wasting her time as understudy for anyone – and least of all for some man. The vice presidency is simply not a good enough job for her.

    Michael/Fuzzy – I’m sorry I missed this last night. When I found out I dunked O, I ascended into anti-demagogue heaven for a moment.

    After reading other blogs, I would like some talented web person to create a Brazile Nutz website featuring Donna’s vitriolic e-mails and text messages. Over at clintondems, she waylaid a soldier serving in Baghdad. I think her attempts at intimidation and voter suppression should be recorded for posterity. I’m glad you figured out how to provide her with gainful employment last night.

    By the way, as of this writing, O’s mortgage is being investigated. He will be the gift that keeps on giving to Republican lawyers.

  232. I got me a t-shirt! I always need the inspiration when fighting the Power.

  234. I gave and bought a couple of shirts. I have lurking around this evening very disturbed at MSM, the DNC and most of all, those dumb polls. It;s a travesty. Both candidates are imploding. It will be a matter of who will be the worst. And the best candidate that has come along in a long time is being trashed and put down like a leper. Go figure. Go PUMAs.

  235. I gave again and it feels great!
