    • Hope Is Bullshit
      I am unintersted in “hope.” Or as we called it in the Obama bullshit years, Hopium. Hope is not a plan. Hope is bullshit. Luck is real, but you don’t count on luck other than in the sense that the harder you work, and the more things you do, the more likely you are to […]

Raindrops from around the web

Thanks to all you readers who sent me suggestions on who to include on the blogroll. Every single one of them has been worth reading. Here are a couple of posts from the blogroll that are worth a read:

Let’s assume that come the general election, Hillary wins the states she has won and loses the states Obama has won. Similarly, Obama wins the states he has won so far and loses the states Hillary has won. Do the math and tell me who is the more viable candidate.

Hillary — 205 Electoral votes (FL, NH, AR, NV, MI, NY, NJ, TN MA, OK, CA, AZ)
Obama — 110 Electoral votes (IA, MO, GA, SC, ID, NM, AL, IL, AK, KS, UT, DE, ND, MN)
If you are math challenged, you are an Obama supporter

THIS is why we have Superdelegates. They do the math so we don’t have to. (Clinton people had this figured out on Tuesday night. And they said Obama has all the smart college edumacated supporters.)

  • This post at Shakesville, “Damned if you do…” by Melissa McKewn, explains the unacknowledged morass going on in many women’s heads this primary season. Just go read it. And mum’s the word.
  • The Clinton Cocktail Hour was a response to a challenge that Kos made to us poor Clinton supporters on DKos. He implied we didn’t have any friends or places to go, so we created one. Since my exile, the Cocktail Hour has lived on, tended diligently by the remnant of Hillary supporters who put up with the crazies on our behalf. I like having Cocktail Hour here as well or at least Nightcaps and I see that people are checking them out. But few people post and that sort of defeats the purpose of having cocktails in the first place. So, I’d like your advice. Should it stay or should it go? And if it stays, what day of the week is good? And finally, does anyone have any good cocktail music to recommend? I will take requests.
  • We are here and there. I suspect we’re a much greater number of bloggers and readers than our anemic numbers at DailyKos would indicate. If you are a reader and you feel that you’ve been thrown out of your tribe, never fear, you are in very good company. Obamagasms can’t last forever. And in the meantime, we are building a stable alternative blogoverse to carry on when the Big Blog Stores become mere shadows of their former selves. We will find each other, like rain, coalescing into streams, seeking the path of least resistance and merging into one mighty river. Hang in there.
