These People Are Also in It to Win It

posted by on May 14 at 14:14 PM

The piece opens auspiciously with the line:

LUIS SALGADO will forever see Hillary Clinton on his thigh.

This raises all kinds of hope for where this story may go next, but then it just turns out that some guy in Philadelphia is giving out free tattoos of Hillary Clinton.

Salgado, 28, owner of the Ill Skillz (4948 N. 5th) tattoo parlor just got a portrait of Clinton inked on his leg at a tattoo convention in Baltimore.

Artist Buffalo Bill, of Sunbury, offered a free Hillary tattoo to any takers because his daughter Sarah Taby is a big Clinton supporter and thought the tattoo would give Clinton good exposure…

“Hell, yeah,” Salgado says, when we asked if he voted for Clinton recently.

As for the tattoo itself?


That’s pretty cool, but it’s nothing compared to the full portrait of Dennis Kucinich, riding a winged horse and battling a dragon, that I’m considering having done on my back.

Bah! What a waste of time when you could get Stefen Colbear, Paladin of Light!

Don't forget to somehow incorporate his wife into that design.

I'm far more proud of the Obama tattoo on Chelsea's thigh.

Kucinich would have to ride a "My Pretty Pony".

Why is Hillary Blocking the Michigan Delegates from being seated? The MI Dems, the DNC and Obama have agreed to the Michigan Compromise to seat the Delegates in Denver. But Hillary won't allow it. It seems she would rather disenfranchise the People of MI. Does Hillary hateMichigan? It makes you wonder.

The disenfranchisement of Florida and Michigan is embarrassing! The republican controlled legislature in Florida precluded the primary from being held within the approved timeline, and the DNC allowed it to happen. There aren't 48 states in this union, and EVERY vote needs to be counted. Both Florida and Michigan agreed to a re-vote funded by non-tax dollars, and still Obama refused! He wants only 48 states to count, despite the fact that he thinks there are 57.

I applaud Bill Clinton in his assessment of Florida and Michigan. These are states, very IMPORTANT states. They should be allowed to re-vote and have their delegates seated. Obama supporters DON"T want this to happen because he was dead set against having Florida and Michigan revote and be seated. If they had been, he would be losing now by ALL accounts.....what a pud he is.....however, I think on May 31st, the delegates will be seated, the count will go to 2209, and Hillary will win the nomination on the convention floor! Hillary 08!

Lets review- neither candidate has the required number of delagates to be awarded the nomination. So let ALL the people vote. Fla and Michigan? not counting the votes? a setup by the DNC to get OBAMA selected as the nominee. They set this up long ago. And excuse me- why have a convention if the nominee has already been decided by the new pundits and Dean? I thought the covention was there to enable the party to make a final decision- if one had not obtained the required number of delegates by then?
So as we've already annointed Obama the winner-Cancel the convention and save the money for the general election. As for the Florida life long Democrat- John McCain gets my vote- just for spite!

BO refused an all expense paid re-vote because he knew how Florida and Michigan originally voted, and how they'd likely vote now. Florida and Michigan primary votes DO count, and the delegates must be seated proportionate to the original primaries.

BO dismisses Florida and Michigan voters, people from small towns, blue-collar workers, gun-owners, church-goers, West Virginia, and virtually everyone else in America. Pray tell, how is this man electable?

Thank you Bill for speaking up about this hypocracy. My understanding is that Michigan wasn't too receptive of Obama. I think the newness of his campaign has rubbed off. If McCain draws the Reagan Democrats this November, the Republicans will win. The only way I vote for this guy is if Hillary is on the ticket. Why would you put a perfect stranger on the ticket when Hillary won half the Democratic Electorate in the primaries. Who cares what Michele Obama wants or thinks. Hillary supporters will not unite if she is not on the ticket.

Hillary has enough reasons to run as a third party candidate. The fact that votes aren't counting in Florida and Michigan are enough. Run HRC Run. Obama has proven that he can;t win the general election. He has lost four out of the last five primaries. He only won North Carolina becasue the African American Vote is voting as a block. He loses everywhere else. An Obama nomination is a gift to McCain.

he should keep shaving part of that leg and grow her some eyebrows and a beard.

You're a moron, HRCFanGrrrl. If they seated those delegates, Obama would still win.

Ryan, either the horse or the dragon better have Ron Paul's face on it, or you'll be a laughingstock.

Do it! Just like 'St. George and the Dragon'. Bastardize that religious iconography.

Where is that thing? And where is Bill? Lurking nearby?
