Pre-Game Show

Big game tonight and that's pretty much all I'm thinking about.

Let's just clear one thing up right now. There are those who are saying that if Hils doesn't win Pennsylvania, she should drop out. Here's my analysis in the proverbial nut shell:

A) Odds are she's going to win PA.

2) She's not going to win it by a slam dunk. So she'll walk out still behind Barack in pledged delegates but she'll spin it as a victory and "proof" she can win in the big blue-collar states. Doesn't matter if she wins by 3 percentage points. That's how she rolls.

3) I saw her on Larry King last night. (Larry King bugs me but I watched for a bit anyway). Girlfriend isn't going anywhere. If Barack beat her in PA 80% to 20% maybe, just maybe, there'd be pressure on her to quit. But that isn't going to happen. She's riding this one all the way to the convention and she's counting on the superdelegates so there you have it.

My advice? Relax and enjoy the ride.

Larry King gives me the creeps.

I wish for all of this to be over with and a democrat is the president. I would click my heels but I dont wear them. I will wiggle my nose..that might work.

I'm with you on your analysis. She is in it for the long haul. I had to love Jon Stewart's question to Barack last night on the Daily Show; he asked him if even if he gets the nomination and wins the presidency, will she still be campaigning? Such a smile came over the face of the gentleman from Illinois!

Ba Ha Ha Ha (Note no W)

Hope that Hil and Bar read that too. We need them to do their best all the way to the finish line.

After all, its not so much of a race as a battle with the victory determined by how much and how many senators and reps.

AHEM!!!

HAPPY EARTH DAY!!!

Peace

Rightee-oh, Rainey. Right on the money (keyword for "democracy" in this country). Hills is riding it all the way to june AND, that way, we can again succeed in doing at least half of Johnny boy's work and may again snap defeat out of the jaws of victory... AND let's not forget Ralphie the spoiler (and egomaniac) (Nader) (whom I used to like and then he showed us how much he could destroy an entire country by letting the bad guys steal the election, deprive us of democracy, and get us the worst mess this country has ever known (mark my words, I know what a recession is, folks: We got it coming Beeeeg!! My estimate: 11% inflation now (and that was last Fall I established that)
So vote Barack and pray, b/c good old politicking a la Hills or W and the steal of the 2000 elections (when AL was elected--W was elected in 2004, con~os!) is not going to get us out of this one. UNLESS we get a whole new player in the big house... And it is going to take electrifying charisma and ideaLs (and ideas), not down-home BS political theater and backroom deals and realities to get out of this mess.

Larry King has the worst dentures in the world and no ass. So, as far as HillRod goes...I think good ole Billy Boy is gonna do her in with his big stupid mouth....

Hillary doesn't strike me as the type to just throw in the towel,and I'm not sure how good it is for the party to be so split at this point.
But it is a fun ride!

No--not all the way to the convention! God forbid! I would really hate that. Hillary needs to drop out long before that.

I'm stepping out of the political theatre for a spell. I need to smoke a fag, slam a jigger and other such niceties wot temporarily lower yet ultimately raise my blood preasure. Don't worry if none of this made sense to you. I am basically throwing letters together like a spider monkey with so much pooh.

I'm ready for this to be over with. Barack is now going to be raked over the coals and I am already tired of hearing how he can't "take the pressures" of a big campaign..... blah, blah, blah
