Late inning update: Obama scores

It's now Hillary Clinton 7, Barack Obama 5.

The Obama campaign just announced they've picked up their fifth Ohio superdelegate: Former Darke County Democratic Party chairwoman Enid Goubeaux.

Only 9 Ohio superdelegates still up in the air.

I guess Enid is afraid of sniper fire too. She prefers terrorist supporters.

Clinton will steal the nomination from Obama with the able assistance of the Greens, Ralph Nader, Jeremiah Wright, William Ayers, Michelle Obama, that Rezko character and even Obama himself. The "true believers" of Obamania will then be so upset they will not vote at all or they'll vote in droves (maybe 20% of them according to polls) for Nader, for the Green ticket or for John Sidney McCain.

The mirror image of a Clinton nomination is an Obama nomination with gobs of Clintonistas turning their backs on Obama in November.

Either way it will be a joy and a wonder to behold.

The mirror image of an Obama nomination is the anger and disappointment of gobs of Clintonistas so that they turn their backs on Obama in November.

Either way, it will be a joy and a wonder to behold!

So who are the delegates not yet declared?

Smither Man, Laketa Coalmine, David Peckerhead and Urkel.

We're watching very closely, and some of us have long memories when it comes to your next election.
That includes you, Mark Mallory.

Hillary done got the election stoled already.

Except that Hillary's campaign has NO Money!

How is Hillary supposed to lead this country into a better economic situation, when she cant even balance her campaign's budget?

So much for experience giving her any kind of edge!

Her only solution is to operate in the RED!

Useless Idiot wingnut 11:47/56, nice double post, moron.

Keep dreaming, asshat. it's not gonna happen. Dems are coming out in force to vote for whoever the nominee is, and you can't do anything to stop it.

Enjoy your irrelevancy.

Y'all cum n'save us, Bawrock Whosane Obomber! We done fell through the Clinton gubbermint net, and the Bush gubbermint net too, so's we is a gettin' bitter as bitteroot, we cling to silly ol' guns, that ol' time religion, and we been shootin' folks that ain't like us, as a way to 'splain the lack of gubbermint supervision over our po' simple redneck lives.
Jus' don't give nuthin' fer free to those gawddam McCoys.

I predict "civil unrest" if Obama gets dumped for Hillary by the Super D's.

at 8:06 PM, April 21, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

I won't need to stop them, banjo-eyes (2:55, 4/21). They're doing everything possible to jerk defeat from the jaws of victory themselves. Will Rogers was right.
He once told a reporter he wasn't a member of any organized political party, 'cause he was a Democrat. What was true then is true now. Watch the self-destruction of your precious socialist, retreat and defeat, pro-abortion, anti-marriage, tree-hugging, high taxing, big government party and weep while I rejoice. I just hope the GOP regains majorities in both houses of Congress along with the McCain White House. I expect that, too.

#1 Clintonistas are power hungry - just like her.
As much as they hate Obama - they'll vote for him 100% before they'd vote for a republican president.
Obama is in.

In addition to being a paranoid, right wing freak and general idiot, 6:34 is a racist assh*le.

I cannot believe that the Enquirer lets comments like that be published.

at 12:55 AM, April 22, 2008 Blogger Cheviot Sports Idiot said...

Keep dreaming right wing trolls. You are going to be hating life in November. Hillary said tonight, on Countdown with Keith Olbermann, that should Obama win she will go out and campaign for him. Obama said the same thing about Hillary on The Daily Show tonight.

The Dems will be more united come November than your party will be, with the Ron Paul nutcases vs the religious right vs the greedy rich vs John McCain.

You are going down, losers.

at 9:21 AM, April 22, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

12:55 am, 4/22, I don't believe a damned thing Clinton says. Obama either. Neither has any personal or professional integrity. If you're a kool-aid drinking true believer in the leaders of the Jackass party, go for it. But I'm telling you, you won't win the White House this November.

at 9:53 AM, April 22, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

12:55 You believe what Hillary and/or Obama says in the heat of an election pandering for votes? You are an Idiot and watch out for the sniper fire. Put your tin foil hat on backwards.

12;55 is a Soros/open society/moveon/progressive socialist sock puppet elitist. Her and her ilk need to get a grip on what sells in Berkley and what sells in the Sovereign United States of America.

Her and her crowed will be crawling back to their group-think tank in 8hrs.

Good widdens to bad wubbish!!!!!

I couldn't think of any 2 democrats that could be more unelectable candidates that Hillary or Hussein. I love it.

Anon 11:48 You mean the Cheviot idiot is a woman? If yes, then she's one foul mouthed, envious, destructive female. Next, we'll find out her hero Cheviot Authority is female too. Never thought one woman could be so cruel.

Useless Asshat-I am a progressive Democrat. I donate money to Move On, and George Soros is a hero if mine.

Your hack candidate, John W. McSame is going to get crushed by either Dem in November. McSame is running on every single one of Bush's policies, he is completely beholden to big business lobbyists, he has no money and he is a tired old man who can't even keep the different insurgent groups fighting in Iraq straight. He is planning to stay in Iraq for 100 years, and doesn't seem to care that the Iraqi's will not fight for themselves or even pay for the war.

McSame doesn't know anything about the economy. he said so himself.

Plus McSame has a temper problem. Military leaders are openly saying that they are scared of John McCain becoming President, and that he is temperamentally unfit for command.

The Religious Right wackjobs even hate McSame.

John McCain is the Manchurian Candidate.

The GOP is finished.

1:01 pm, 4/22, now that I've stopped laughing at your pea-brained blithering, I can respond.
Like all your socialist, retreat and defeat, pro-abortion, anti-family, high taxing, big government, tree-hugging, weak national defense, America-hating, open borders brothers and sisters on the far left, you are nutty, pure and simple. And I'm done with you. Oh yes, if you are female, I'll bet you're a blast at a cocktail party, particularly after you've gotten a snootful. And it's no wonder you have lots of time to parade your leftist BS in this blog--no dates. Jeepers, I wonder why.

Soros and the open society is transparent.....the world has it's flirtation with socialism and it didn't work.

Try reading Horowitz instead of Chomsky.

at 2:16 PM, April 22, 2008 Blogger Cheviot Sports Authority said...

By the comments made by my "admirer" the Cheviot Sports Idiot, I would have to guess that he/she/it is not even old enough to vote.

at 8:34 PM, April 22, 2008 Blogger Cheviot Sports Idiot said...

I believe in what the majority of the people of this nation believe:

-Freedom of choice

-Pull our troops out of Iraq

-Tax the rich

-Universal health care

-Freedom of consenting adults to marry whom they choose.

-The teaching of Science in schools, and not supersticous religion bunk, like creationism.

-Freedom of, and from, religion.

Only you deadend, 19 percenter wingnuts believe otherwise. You are nothing but a small, bitter and vocal minority.

You right wing losers are going to hate the next decade. You should probably go ahead and leave the nation right now.

It's going to be Obama or Clinton in the White House, and a huge Dem majority in the House & Senate. Plus we get most of the statehouses.

Bye bye wingnuts.

at 9:40 PM, April 22, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

CSI---- Anybody can be a follower of the majority; it's easy because it's the path of least resistence.
You don't respect peoples' property so you have major issues. I feel confident about the next decade because you are going to realize your so called saviors are bunk. Remember how Nancy Pelosi was going to end the Iraq war and bring our troops home? What happened? Nothing.
Hillary and/or Obama won't either if they get past Mc Cain who realizes the importance of National security. If you are a woman, you must be as rough as sandpaper.

at 9:56 PM, April 22, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

8:34 Don't think so sweetie. The silent majority will go to the polls en mass in November.
After tonight's results, Hillary is going to cause havoc. Bill wants back in the White House to enjoy the good life. Obama is stunned at this point and most blacks are starting to see the hand writing. Tough times ahead for the mule.

8:34 pm, 4/22, I'll have to hand it to you. Most dem/libs call themselves "progressives" and try their damndest to hide what they truly stand for. You didn't. You just came right out and told the world, at least that tiny part of the world that reads this blog, that you are a bona fide liberal, that you and moveon.org and the Berkeley City Council are soulmates, that you're a Robert Redford/Barbara Streisand/Whoopie Goldberg/Rob Reiner groupie, that you find little or nothing objectionable in Barney Frank and that "HillaryCare" is your cup of tea. Trumpet it, dude (or is it dudette)! Say it loud and proud! You are what you are!

But your candor and I part company, big-time, when you claim, hanging in mid-air on nothing, that a majority of Americans believe the leftist agenda you tout. Get real. Americans are one holy heckova long way from the European-styled nanny state and the gutless, do-nothing military you are whining for. You'll see just how far when John Sidney McCain wins the White House.

What CSI said!!

Wow, the unholy triumvirate of right wing morons has gotten together; UselessIdiot, Chevy-It Sports dumb*ss and the Mr. Wingnut, who likes to pretend to be a "rich industrialist" while he blogs from his mother's basement.

Actually, it might only be two people (and I use the term 'people' loosely when referring to these right wingers) blogging, because UslessIdiot and Chevy-it are likely the same person.

In any event, this trio will not enjoy the years to come, when the GOP is out of power completely. Perhaps you should follow the advice and leave the country. There must be some nation in South America that will welcome three neo-fascist, right wing wackjobs like you.

Here is some suggested reading for your enjoyment, while you wait for The End:






And here's a little present for you; I HAD THE DISTINCT PLEASURE AND HONOR OF MEETING GEORGE SOROS IN 2006. He's a finer American than any you can ever hope to be.

at 9:29 AM, April 23, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

I wonder if the Enquirer will run the fact that everyone in Marc Dann's office has been cleared of wrongdoing with the same breathless intensity they covered the now-totally-discredited right-wing smears. The news media in Ohio should personally apologize to the Attorney General, his wife, his staff, and his children.

Also, the Ohio (Criminal Racket Formerly Known As The) Republican Party should reimburse the Dann family and the State for all the attorney fees and other expenses caused by their witch-hunt. The best part is there is no Starr Report for the Gang Of Perverts to get off on reading.

Next, the news media in this town and this nation needs to stop being the Gang Of Perverts' mouthpiece. With Chimpy McHitler oficially the most despised "President" in history, perhaps the news media would have more readers if they didn't mindlessly repeat whatever the Liar In Chief's paid hacks tell them to write.

"... He's a finer American than any you can ever hope to be.

After lying to the NAZI high command in order to save his own pathetic ass and selling out his countrymen in Hungary, short-selling currency to the point of braking the economy of Malaysia, Great Briton, Russia among many,
advocating one world currency, let alone one world government.

Soros should be tried for crimes against humanity in the Hague.

If I were poor, I'd be a Democrat so I could line up for all the free give aways.
I'm rich, ergo, I'm Republican.
Get an education, go to work, become a business owner and live the American dream. It's not easy, but you keep telling people it's OK to underachieve because the government will provide.

Mr. Wingnut, for your information

-I am educated, BA from William & Mary.

-I own my own business.

-My Wife and I earn in excess of $200,000 per year, placing us in the top 5% income bracket.

-I learned at a very early age that being a Democrat means caring about people, caring about the future of our country. It is the Democratic party which always has and always will fight for American families. For their jobs and their futures. Democrats and Republicans both say you should climb the ladder of success. But the Republicans say, when you get to the top, pull the ladder up behind you. We Democrats say that you leave it down for others to climb too.

I am a Democrat because I believe in the principles of fairness, opportunity, equal justice for all and a firm belief that the mission of government is not to stand on the sidelines, but to be active in pursuing these goals for the people. You are a republican because you are greedy, self-centered, paranoid, fearful and believe that opportunity should be for the privileged few.

-Mr. Wingnut, you are neither 'rich', nor are you an 'industrialist' as you claim. Such people lead busy, successful lives and do not have the ample free time that you have available to you in order to troll blog posts every day, all day 2,4,7/365.

UselessIdiot, your slander of George Soros betrays your ignorance. I'd wager that you get your 'news' from World Nut Daily, don't you?

Soros was 14 years old when the war ended in Hungary, where he spent the war years. He helped financially support both the Solidarity labour movement in Poland and the Czechoslovak human rights organisation Charter 77, both of which contributed to ending Soviet Union. And he has also opposed to the criminal Bush administration.

Soros is a champion of freedom, and he has more money than you will ever see in 10 of your sad lifetimes.

at 4:48 PM, April 23, 2008 Blogger usefullidiot said...

Gorge Soros's father bribed a government official to take 14-year-old George Soros in and swear that he was his Christian godson. While hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews were being shipped off to the death camps, George Soros accompanied his phony godfather on his appointed rounds, confiscating property from the Jews. He was damn lucky he didn't swing from a lamppost in '44.

You were very smart not defending Soros international money manipulations.

BTW...I don't believe a word about your chronic self indulgent I,I,I,I, message to "wingnut".

You really need to get a life Jeffy. How about spending sometime looking for a 'special friend'? There has to be someone, or something, out there that will have you. Don't worry about what your fellow rethuglicans will think, they already know that you are a 'confirmed bachelor'.

Not that there's anything wrong with it.....

You clearly are not one of them, as you seem to have ample time to troll the blogs 24/7 with your puzzling addiction to the President of the Blue Chip Young Republicans. Set your sights higher man. Maybe the mayor or a city councilman, the president of a local YR club just isn't that important.

CC needs to get a life instead of blogging day and night. Somewhere you said you own a business. It can't require your input because you're always here.
I'm beginning to think this "business" is fictional too since some of your fellow co-workers feel pretty safe commenting about you and laughing up their sleeves.
If you do have an office job, you have a cakewalk for 92 K annually. Your real job is blogging liberal lies.
