Why Florida Mail-In primary is a bad idea

Although MSM forgot to mention these facts, the State of New York is still counting and recounting ballots. Every review or recount results in Hillary losing votes and Barack gaining them. California just added two more delegates to Barack’s column because of “errors” in the initial counting. Texas caucus and primary reviews find pro-Hillary errors, and possible fraud by Hillary staffers in some caucus voting. Ohio results are being reviewed and Barack stands to win more votes in that state as well.

What drives Hillary?

Depending on the poll, (which have been far more wrong than right this year) Barack Obama now holds a lead over Hillary Clinton nationally. In Ohio, he is only behind by single digits, after being behind by as much as 29%. In Texas, either they are tied, or Barack has earned a small lead.

Yet this morning, the Clinton campaign sent out its talking heads on cue, hitting all cable and morning news stations. The message was clear. She plans to win this, and stay in until the very end.

Pothole Heaven

Paris – the City of Lights
Florence – the City of Love
Denver – the Mile High City
Cleveland – the City of Burning Rivers
Detroit – Motown
LA – . . . . (the debate continues – is it a city?)
Washington DC – the City of Morons and Thieves


Chicago – the City of Potholes

Many here already know that Chicago has four seasons: summer, winter, elections, and road construction.

Conspiracy theories and cut InterTube cables

Truth is stranger than fiction, reality is weirder than any drug induced Hunter S. Thompson fairy tale, and sometimes obvious facts are so bad that the mind chooses to ignore what the eyes see right front and center.

Hillary’s problem Children

No, not Chelsea. In fact, she shows more class than the whole group of campaign staffers, especially those on top.

It is clear that Hillary has a problem. No, several problems. Money, dead growth patterns, fading poll indicators, and trends that not just worrisome, but deadly for a campaign. Let’s start with $$, then move on the the IDs of her problem children.

Obama has raised 6.8 million in 1.5 days since the Tuesday superprimary. Hillary claims 2+ million. Obama earned 32 million in January, Hillary was so cash short, she loaned 5 million to her campaign.

Voter Central

As promised, I voted early and often. The early part was easy. the polls opened at 6am, and I wasn’t much later. Still in that 45 minutes or so, 39+ people went ahead of me. And lines were forming outside.

There are a few contested seats, namely some US congress seats that are empty because the GOPers who held them earlier tucked tail, turned yellow, and ran like rabid dogs from an angry voting mob. I suspect the GOP will keep at least two of those seats, but Weller’s and Hastert’s absence would be an improvement for any body politic.

Super Tuesday, Super Bowl, and Fat Tuesday

As is our habit here, I will vote early and often in Illinois’ primary tomorrow. For the first time, my vote in a presidential primary may actually mean something. That’s a rather unusual sensation. Honestly, I don’t know what to make of it, other than to think it is a good thing. Seeing Obama’s numbers rise, while Hillary’s fall, well, I suspect that my cable news shows will be off tonight. I simply can’t take anymore spin from the pundits.

They’re not just pets, are they? An Ode to Oberon

There are some in this world who still believe that animals have no personality, cannot reason, and do not have definite feelings. I’ve even heard some say that dog are a waste and unnecessary. Obviously, they have never been close to one. Or in some cases, been owned by excess felines. Dogs truly are man’s best friend. They silently put up with your foibles, idiosyncratic behavior, your whims, and your ways. They react to nice attention like a magnifying mirror, returning it three times as powerfully.
