    • Assassination Works Only Under Two Circumstances
      For years, decades even, America has had a policy of assassination. Americans believe that if you kill the leaders, you kill an organization. This is delusional. It only works when it almost isn’t necessary. How many times has American killed the #2 man of the Taliban? Did killing Osama stop Al-Qaeda? Assassinating Yamamoto in WWII […]

Let it all out

Marc Ambinder at The Atlantic reports David Plouffe saying that all the Obama campaign cares about is 18 states:

“The development on the out of touch argument is an actually critical development of the campaign,” he said, because “[s]ome of the voters images of McCain don’t jibe with reality.”

He acknowledged that the campaign still had work to do in order to fill in some details about Barack Obama. “We have to be very careful how we approach the swing electorate because they don’t have the information about Barack Obama.”

“All we care about is these 18 states,” he said. He repeated, with emphasis, that the campaign does not care about national polling. Instead, the campaign’s own identification, registration and canvassing efforts provide the data he uses to determine where to invest money and resources.”

Well, that’s nice.  I hope NJ isn’t one of them.  Oh, and it looks like Plouffe and Axlerod are planning perception management in the swing states where they don’t know about Obama.  Them stoopid people gotta be ejucated and get nollij about Obama and then they will forget all about having their primary votes nullified.  Piece of cake!

This is an open thread.

Welcome to Denver!

Denver cop greets Code Pink

NO WE WON’T: Don’t hold back

Sheri left Denver this morning and can’t host NO WE WON’T tonight so I’m subbing for her.  We will be talking to Brad Mays and what he’s caught on video and we’ll try to touch base with John West and Michelle Thomas about what went on behind the scenes with the delegates.  Call in and tell us what you’re thinking about Nancy Pelosi, faithless delegates, Superdelegates who were derelict in their duty and whether you intend to jump on the Obama Love Train. That’s NO WE WON’T at 9:00PM EST, 7:00PM MT.

So this is how Liberty dies, with thunderous applause

I will remain a PUMA.  No way, No how.  NO OBAMA.

November.

Dear NJ delegates, *I* didn’t release you

There will be no love train.  I’m not onboard.  I will never be onboard.

You didn’t listen to us during the primaries.

You didn’t listen to us during the convention.

You are going to hear from us in November.

Barack Obama will NEVER get my vote.  I don’t owe the party anything.

And if you want to find someone to blame, look no further than the superdelegates.

Backlash is comin’.  We will make the powers that be the powers that were.

Let the DNC and your State Attorney General know how you feel about having your vote stolen by faithless delegates and a party who asks for your taxdollars to run a primary and then does what the hell it wants.

Blame the Superdelegates for the impending disaster

If I hear one more person try to guilt me into voting for this lightweight in order to save the nation, I’m going to dope slap him/her.

There are people who are responsible for the impending disaster.  They are the Superdelegates.  They have a choice.  They can go with the competent, dedicated, brilliant, knowledgeable DEMOCRAT, or they can choose the post partisan, unscrupulous, unethical, schmoozer whose party loyalty is in doubt.

To US, the choice is simple.  It’s not our fault that we refuse to swallow the poison.

When Obama loses in November, and he will, look to the people who had the obligation to rescue the country from three consecutive terms of Republican rule.  The Superdelegates.

Who owns your vote? Delegates?
