In a Time of Universal Deceit, Telling the Truth is Revolutionary.

Obama wins Georgia, Illinois; McCain takes Illinois, New Jersey, Conn.; Clinton tops in Okla., Tenn., Ark.

Sen. Barack Obama captured the Illinois and Georgia Democratic primaries Tuesday night while Hillary Clinton appeared headed for victory in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Tennessee.

On the Republican side, John McCain won Illinois, New Jersey and Connecticut but failed to beat Mitt Romney in Massachusetts after a big push there. Mike Huckabee won the West Virginia caucus and Arkansas.

In Georgia, exit polls showed black voters made up 52 percent and Obama captured 86 percent. But Obama also won 43 percent of the white vote, a sharp increase over the South Carolina results, a trend that could mean problems for Sen. Hillary Clinton in other states.

Among non African-American voters, Obama easily beat Clinton, garnering well over 50 percent.

Can McCain seal the deal?

John McCain hoped to seal the deal. Mitt Romney wanted to stay alive. Either outcome was possible.

Super Tuesday’s coast-to-coast voting promised either to cap a turbulent yearlong campaign for the Republican presidential nomination by giving McCain enough convention delegates to make him unstoppable or to stretch the race out for weeks by putting Romney within reach of his chief rival’s total.

Decision time at the polls

Arizona Sen. John McCain challenged his remaining rivals for control of the Republican presidential race Tuesday in primaries and caucuses from Connecticut to California. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama vied for Democratic delegates in a grueling campaign with no end in sight.

After an early series of low-delegate, single-state contests, Super Tuesday was anything but — primaries and caucuses spread across nearly half the country in the most wide-open presidential campaign in memory.

Playground Politics and Punishments

By Maggie Van Ostrand’

The age of playground politics has never been more apparent than these last few weeks.

“I’ve got more money than you.”
“Have not”
“Have too”
“Have not”
“Have too”

Or

“That’s what you said”
“Did not”
“Did too”
“Did not”
“Did too”

Or

“I’ve got Oprah Winfrey”
“Oh yeah? I’ve got Barbra Streisand”
“I’ve got Jack Nicholson”
“Oh yeah? I’ve got Robert DeNiro.”

I’m not even going to mention Ann Coulter promising to stump for Hillary if McCain is the Republican Party’s nominee. Does anyone care?

Do-it-yourself medical records put to the test

Do-it-yourself medical records put to the test
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22996700/

“Can using personal health records, or PHRs, actually make you healthier? The government is spending millions on the first studies to find out. ”

This makes me nuts. In a day of massive deficits, this is the type of useless junk that needs to be cut. Instead they are cutting necessities to people and to our country’s infrastructure.

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.

It’s The Economy Stupid !

It’s the economy, stupid!… is the slogan given large credit for Bill Clinton’s victory over G.H.W. Bush (41) in 1992. The 1987 stock market crash had presaged the bursting of the savings and loan bubble, which sent the US economy officially into recession in 1990. The primary cause of the bubble/recession was unsound real estate lending practices. Sound familiar?

The REAL Reason We Are In Iraq

As sad as it may seem, rather than an abject failure, I’m now beginning to believe that Bush and his cabal’s plans in the Middle East have actually been a resounding success from their point of view.

For their apparent collective “stupidity” has resulted in continued turmoil in the Middle East, which, in turn, allows the Government of Israel to continue its decades of racism, apartheid and hegemony in the region. What’s more, Mr. Bush’s, continued failure to “win the peace” in Iraq and Afghanistan has virtually guaranteed that our troops will now be there for decades.

The Clinton effect

Tom Effertz is 73 and a wheat farmer. Rosie Erganian is 52 and lives in a town on the Missouri River. He’s a Republican. She’s a Democrat. Both Missourians want anyone but Democrat Hillary Clinton for U.S. president.

“We’re tired of the Hillary thing,” Effertz said. “We’d had enough of Bill and Hillary.”

“I do not like the way they’ve been kind of nasty,” said Erganian, of Rocheport, Missouri. “I don’t want anybody in office like that.”
