(EDIT) By the way, here's a story about someone who HONORS HER COMMITTMENTS, unlike the idiot pictured above. Oh HAY, look the RACIST is pandering (except not, because she's known that child since she was 2)!!! I sure hope Aleatha is as pissed as fuck as the rest of us for the Obamatrons (and the Obama campaign including the Arrogant Douchebag) labelling the Clintons as racist.

Yes, the thing I'm pissed off about is the crap that's all over the news and the "progressive" blogs. The b.s. about how Clinton supposedly implied that Obama will be shot like RFK.
However, that's not what she fucking said. And it's being taken out of its entire context and being made out to be a big fat...bunch of bullshit like the LBJ/MLK comment. And yet somehow, Bobby Kennedy Jr. got what she was saying.
Obamatrons will think nothing of manufacturing SOMETHING out of NOTHING in order to destroy Clinton's character. Fucktards.

Can someone please explain to me why, after Hillary wins by a huge margin in Kentucky and Obama wins by a much smaller margin in Oregon, the article on their website has a big picture of Obama and the headline "Obama 'within reach' of victory"?!
Thank God for this community, or I'd think the race for nominee was a foregone conclusion like most other people in this country.ETA: Just watched Hillary's victory speech from Kentucky. There are no words for that level of awesome. XD

- He hadn't repeatedly said that "Barack Obama is the MAN to do it . . ."
- It hadn't been clearly timed to take attention away from Hillary's WV win
- I hadn't then within 20 minutes received an email from him asking for money for his college scholarship program (to which I responded letting him know exactly why I wasn't going to donate)
- It made any sort of logical sense
The last is the thing I can't figure out. From my understanding of the announcement, Edwards saw that Obama was having difficulty attracting the core democratic electorate, and so he decided to endorse him. Am I the only one that sees those two statements as orthogonal to each other?? Why not throw your support behind the person who CAN attract the electorate on their own merit??
The Obama supporter with whom I take the train (and I still can't figure out why he's an Obama supporter) and I had an interesting discussion this morning, he's still not entirely sure that Obama can win against McCain in the fall, and he said he thinks Hillary's staying in the race so that when McCain wins, she'll be able to say "I told you so," and she'll get the nomination in four years handed to her on a silver platter. It's an interesting thought, and the only thing giving me comfort at the moment.

I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really *chanelling Birdgirl here* really, really, really HATE THAT WOMAN.
P.S. As I fed Henry, I pondered this. People will bitch and moan if we call MO a "bitch" or worse and then attribute our ire against MO to racism. Yeah, because showing some class is SOLELY upon the shoulders of black Americans. Only...not. Had Cindy McCain or Hell, any woman of any color--white, Asian, Hispanic--said the same thing, I would still say that the woman lacked class and manners. Stillife is correct: I don't see how this woman, this supposedly intelligent of a woman with a poor attitude, could ever compare to Jackie Kennedy. Never, ever. EVER.
EDIT OH HAY LOOK, stupid bitches are getting all pissy over what I say again. You gals (and some guys) just don't know when to quit, do you? Nor do you know how to read post scripts.

Basics: A young voter sent Donna Brazile an email through Brazile's website. She got a response.
Young voter's email:
From: natalie bryan [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]
Sent: Thursday, May 08, 2008 2:17 AM
Subject: This Race
I am emailing you on behalf of many people. I am, as you may know, a Hillary Clinton Supporter. You have probably gotten a lot of emails from her supporters, and I understand from the blogs I often frequent that you have responded to many of them.
I want you to know that I read bits and pieces of your autobiography, Cooking With Grease, and thought it was wonderful and well written. I came to understand from your book and from a lot of what I have witnessed in this election cycle that to simply put groups of people in Demographics and Exit polls is a misunderstanding of both America and the Democratic Party.
What I have learned is that people often vote based on their experiences. You, as an Undeclared Obama supporter, probably identify strongly with his candidacy because of the struggles you went through during a time when race relations in this country were in turmoil. I voted for Hillary Clinton, not only because I relate to her strongly as both a person and a woman who is very spiritual and devoted to her family and to helping others, but also because she is the greatest candidate to lead this country out of the mess we're in, and because her policy proposals have been phenominal and close to my heart, because it proves to me that she is not simply talking and promising change, she is telling me how she is going to make it happen. It proves to me that she actually cares.
As a young person, I have a big future ahead of me, and I also have dreams and ambitions, and strong opinions and many other things. CNN tells me every day that I should be supporting Barack Obama, because his freshness and newness should appeal to my fickle nature. But I support Hillary, and like many of her supporters, I feel sad and dissappointed and hurt and many other things by what I see, based on rationality and facts, as the poor and undeserved treatment she and her husband have received by the DNC party elite and the Chicago Style Campaign tactics of Senator Obama's Campaign that I have witnessed with my own eyes and heard a number of stories about.
I understand that many of the emails you have received by Clinton Supporters urging you to do the right and ethical thing by seating Michigan and Florida delegates have been angry and often probably obnoxious. But you cannot possibly understand how frustrated they are. And while you may say that they are "the reason" Hillary is losing, whatever her supporters have done or said pale in comparison to the abuse and mistreatment we have suffered from some supporters of Senator Obama.
You may use Roe V Wade as a trump card for accusing them of being petty in their vows to not support Senator Obama, should he be the nominee, but I assure you that using something like that as a threat will not work, because there are few (actually, no) politicians I have seen that are as devoted to a woman's right to choose than Hillary Clinton, and you know that as well as I.
Ms. Brazille, I urge you not to disclude and disenfranchise millions of voters from every walk of life from this nominating process simply for the sake of one candidate, because doing so would be an awful mistake. I have respect for you as a person, Ms. Brazille, but I would implore you to make the right decision and seat Florida and Michigan . I would also implore you to stop encouraging super delegates to force Senator Clinton out of the race, because the more they do this, the stronger she gets.
Ms. Brazille, I cannot pretend to understand what you have gone through in your life, nor what you are going through now. It would be ignorant of me to try. But many people feel angry when they are stereotyped or put in a box because if what candidate they support. I support Hillary Clinton, and I love all of my friends. Including the great African American friends I have that I adore. and all of the African American women at my mother's church who embrace me and always tell me how "pretty" I look every time I see them. I also love my Latino friends, my Italian friends, my Jewish friends, my Catholic friends.
As I said, I cannot pretend to understand your experiences, but nor can you understand mine. Just because a person's skin may be paler that yours, does not mean their lives are without suffering.
I, for one, cry at night wondering what my republican mother will do if anything happens to her, because she doesn't have Health Insurance. And because of this, my mother may just support Hillary Clinton over John McCain come this fall. She is a Republican who supports Hillary Clinton not because Rush Limbaugh told her to, but because she believes that Hillary Clinton is a Candidate that may actually care about her.
So Ms. Brazille, I would yet again urge you to do everything you can to seat Michigan and Florida properly, and also, I would ask that you stop saying you are "undeclared" on CNN's panels when clearly you know which candidate you support.
Thank you very much for reading this email. Like you, I am very emotionally invested in this Campaign, (as is Stephanie Tubbs Jones, a Congresswoman from the district next to mine who also supports Hillary :D) and wish you all the luck in the world.

As of today, I am not going to respond to any more anti American, Anti Democratic emails. Have a nice day.
I am sorry because you are sincere, but the Hillary forces are uncivil, repugnant and vile. When you come up for air and would like to email a person who cares about America and not just a personality, I will respond.
Thanks for your time and your interest.
I want screencaps of this (supposed) email! And I want to send those screencaps to EVERY MAJOR NEWS OUTLET.

Well at the moment I'm halfway through...can't stomach more than a few chapters at a time, plus whilst I'm reading other things...but I found this good video on Taylor Marsh's blogs that compares and contrasts the stuff in his book with some of the crap Obama's said this season.
I did note that the person neglected to include the passage where Obama's mother told him about the letter that Grandpa Hussein sent to her parents that said that he did not want Anne Dunham's "white woman" blood to taint the Obama bloodline/hated the pairing so much that he threatened to get Obama Sr.'s student visa revoked (pp. 125, 126). That's too bad, because it's a good one.
Enjoy, but skip if you don't want to hear his voice on the night of celebrating her win, LOL.
