At this point, anyone who openly supports Hillary Clinton is a retard.

It doesn't even matter what her stance on the issues is at this point. The fact that she's still going towards the nomination, despite being just about down and out - and pulling out almost every dirty trick in the book to get there, from openly pandering to whatever the "hot" new policy and stance is, to trying to discredit her opponent, to generally pulling pages out of the Neo-Con book - shows that the only thing she really has in mind is her own ambitions, and she cannot - or will not - recognize the damage a protracted campaign is doing to her party that she's supposedly loyal to, in terms of the idiot blue collar workers that still support her and will not support Obama because he's either "elitist", "inexperienced", has (rather, had) a bad church or - GOD forbid - is "black".

Speaking of that church, isn't it ironic that the second preacher - a white guy - made his little speech at the time that he did? No one's been willing to investigate just what this church is getting out of anything? Between Rev. Wright V.2 and this idiot, the timing is too funny. Who's paying them?

Don't get me wrong; unless McCain runs with either Huckabee or anyone in the Bush cabinet, I'm voting for him in November, so technically, I should be "happy" that this bullshit is going on. But I'm not, because it's really turning what is a two party country into a one-party country, and everyone involved is too stupid to see what's really happening, especially as the media puts forth nothing but self-fulfilling prophecies.

Speaking of the media, where's the investigation into how badly the raid on that Polygamist sect was fucked up? Am I reading the wrong news?

You've also forgot the demographic of retarded voters calling Obama a "stupid towel head muslim" because his middle name is Hussein. See: my dad, who buys all the anti-Obama hype.

"That sand nigger is a stupid, towel-headed muslim!"
"Yes, except for the fact that he's Christian. Oh, and not Arabic."
"He'sa gonna take mah gun away!"
"Hasn't he gone on record as saying he respects the 2nd Ammendment?"
"We're not ready for a black President!"
"No, Jimbo, YOU are not ready for a black President!"

Fucking retards will take any kind of schlock the extreme fringes throw at them, all because they feel life dealt them a wrong hand.

Any political system is as strong as it's weakest link. When the weakest link of a system that's reliant on the common people is the common people...

The Economist compared Ms. Clinton to Wile E. Coyote trying to run on air after he's already gone off the cliff. It's an apt image, IMO.

As for what happened to the FLDS kids, it seems to be on the back pages, these days.

Just out of curiosity, if the Republican race was still running and McCain was behind Huckabee, would you call for McCain to drop out?

Depends on the circumstances.

For one, the Republicans have shown no past problems rallying behind whatever knucklehead gets trotted out. The Democrats are hopelessly divided, and a large percentage of their voters do not turn out, feeling the process is useless. Therefore, having McCain and Huckabee in the race, with McCain (someone I like) behind Huckabee (someone I detest) wouldn't have the same effect on them; McCain would ultimately, I'm sure, throw his weight behind Huckabee (like Romney did with McCain), and it'd be one united party, much like how the Republicans are starting to come together under McCain, despite some of the loudmouth assholes calling him a "traitor".

For two, as much as I dislike Huckabee, if there's one thing he's shown he has over someone like Hillary, it's that he at least believes the bullshit coming out of his mouth. Hillary's one and only goal is the White House, and she'll say whatever she has to to get in. Huckabee has shown conviction in his record.

Finally, Hillary has SUCH little chance of beating Obama that all she's doing is further dividing a divided party, and for her own sake as well. If she somehow gets the nomination, the anger of the Obama supporters will make what you're seeing out of Hillary supporters now look like nothing, because she will do it with smoke, mirrors and a few technicalities. If she's fighting so hard for the "greater good", then why is she going so heavily against the odds?

LOL the election hasn't even started yet. :P

All this that's been happening in the newspapers is deciding who to put on the ballot.

As I've noted in chat, I made the grave mistake of assuming Shillary had SOME dignity when I put up my "soon" sig.

Come to think of it, what did they do about those florida delegates?

Florida and Michigan were halved. That was a fair compromise, actually; they broke the rules, and Obama wasn't even on Michigan's ballot when they held primaries. Therefore, Clinton "won" more or less on name recognition. No one campaigned there - that was a general agreement - so Hillary going and fighting for those delegates to be put in fully is hypocritical at best.

I believe they split the delegates like 59-41, or something like that; apparently, Obama had enough votes to make it a 50-50 split, but he decided to throw some more Hillary's way, figuring he's going to at least take Montana and South Dakota (and therefore clinch the nomination). I wonder if he's angling for her to be on his ticket. If that happens, the only thing keeping me from voting for McCain is him picking Huckabee or Guilliani as his veep. I hope he picks Romney, personally. And I could talk myself into Huckabee if it's an Obama-Clinton ticket.

(Or I could just write "Fred Thompson" on the ballot in November. :P)

Either way, I think the choice of VP will tell where everyone's priorities lie. I think, honestly, it's going to be Huckabee and Clinton, so that each candidate has the maximum amount of voters they can get in their corner; Huckabee would turn the Evangelical nutjobs in the south for McCain (the type that take the word of Rush, Ann Coulter and Hannity as gospel), whereas Clinton being on Obama's ticket would more or less unite the entire Democratic party.

Actually, I think th's a bad idea. Clintonistas can't stand obama and Obamaists can't stand Clinton. It would be a bad choice.

I see Clinton as a Democrat in name only. You guys have some interesting times ahead of you.
