Is It Over? Is It F$%@$# Over Yet?

hillary_clintonasdfasdf.jpgMaybe, according to Poliitco:

Members of Hillary Clinton’s advance staff received calls and emails this evening from headquarters summoning them to New York City Tuesday night, and telling them their roles on the campaign are ending, two Clinton staffers tell my colleague Amie Parnes.
The advance staffers — most of them now in Puerto Rico, South Dakota, and Montana — are being given the options of going to New York for a final day Tuesday, or going home, the aides said.

And in related news, the Hillary protesters — exemplified by this crazy lady — really freakin’ embarassed the party over the weekend:

Grandma?! Is that you? What are you doing out there? You get back to your little house, and please, PLEASE stop talking to the press!

Wait - did that say at the end that Obama had "never won a primary fair and square"?!? I mean, forget the crazy ranting woman, is this actually supposed to be seen as attacking Obama, rather than proving the insanity of the Hillary Nation?!?

And, ummm, how did he not win, for example, North Carolina?!? Just as a for instance...

I was referencing his previous primaries in Illinois, where he disqualified all his primary opponents.

The action at the DNC RBC netted him delegates from Michigans...where he was not on the ballot.

His opponent had her lead in Florida cut in half by the DNC RBC.

So, that puts a question on this **primary being unfair as well.

**Don't be dense, I was referencing this entire primary for President.

BTW, I am not a Hillary supporter, I am participating in Operation C.H.A.O.S. Of course, if you had looked at my other videos, that would be apparent.

I did have fun remixing the video, though!

Fun with facts!!

"I was referencing his previous primaries in Illinois, where he disqualified all his primary opponents."

There was ONE primary where he got folks knocked off the ballot. It was a perfectly legal challenge to the number of signatures the candidates had garnered and totally par for the course in local politics.

"His opponent had her lead in Florida cut in half by the DNC RBC"

Her LEAD was not cut in half. Her lead remained EXACTLY the same. They both had the strength of their delegates votes cut in half but the number of delegates was unchanged.

I can't argue about Michigan. There was no good solution to a totally fucked up situation. I thought the committee was thoughtful and reasoned. (And I watched the entire meeting so I feel I have some ground on which to speak.) But Obama had the votes to get a 50/50 split and he gave it up in the interest of being magnanimous so... yeah. They're all politicians. We're gonna disagree with all of them at one time or another but let's try to deal with facts. I know that's tough. Especially when you're a card carrying member of Limbaugh nation but I have faith even you folk can recognize the difference between fact and spin if you try real, real hard.

Ok, I actually LIVE in Michigan and want to set the record straight on why Obama deserved the delegates that he was awarded in here despite not being on the ballot.

The thing that isn't being openly discussed was that the Democratic party in MI and those that supported Obama way back during our primary phase were somewhat appalled at Hil's remaining on the ballot once the word came down that it "wouldn't count." When Obama dropped off, it was assumed that she would as well, and her remaining on the ballot was cast as both cheap and desperate. The word from the Obama campaign in michigan was to vote for the undecided candidate as a form of protest. In all actuality "undecided" gave hillary a run for her money and came within ten points of beating her. She almost lost to him even though you couldn't technically pick his name.

I have no problem recognizing her as my president should she win this thing somehow. However, I'm very disturbed by the "power at all costs" nature of the Clinton's and their campaigning strategies. Then again, I've never run in a primary election before, so maybe I don't have the proper perspective on the whole thing.
