Rumor has it that the reason for Clinton's prolonged fight is a promise from the DLC to give her the nomination in exchange for keeping silent about Bill's mistresses. It will be glorious to watch that corrupt cabal of douchebags run out of the convention on a rail.

Clinton continues to do Geezer McCain's dirty work for him.

Four more years!

So depressing for a sunny Monday morning....

Remember that it was just a year ago when all of us Democrats (Whigs) thought that it would be so much fun watching the GOP self destruct in 2008? Guess we spoke way to soon.

Oh, please. The GOP catastrophe is well under way, and things are proceeding beautifully. Did you notice that bright-red congressional seat in Louisiana that just went for a Democrat? The Repubs are heading for forty years in the wilderness, and the little kerfluffle between the Dem candidates isn't hurting at all.

@5, exactly what the Bull Moose party said too... When does the Bull Moose party hold it's convention again?

Posted by Oh Yeah | May 5, 2008 9:46 AM

Fnarf, you said what I was thinking all morning. Let it ride to the convention as far as I'm concerned.

Sadly, @4 is right. At least in terms of the House and Senate, where an historic Blue Tidal Wave is coming and shows zero signs of stopping.

(oops, i meant @5, yes that means I said Fnarf was right ... don't remind me)

Will in Seattle agrees with Fnarf, giant bugs attacking, seals fucking penguins. Signs of the apocalypse?

Sigh. I miss college sometimes.

Will in Seattle is a blind squirrel. Or a broken clock.
