Quick clarification

I still don’t have regular internet access and I don’t watch TV, so I’m out of the loop. But I hear things — weird, disturbing, almost unbelievable things — and so I’m grabbing a few minutes here on my Dad’s computer before a family birthday party for this brief announcement: When I wrote this post […]

Why does the guy with the second-most votes keep acting like he’s going to be the nominee?

By · Thursday, May 22nd, 2008 · 31 Comments »

Hey, everybody. Just checking in here from my father’s computer. The news is funny, eh? “Barack Obama begins search for running mate” sez the New York Times. Does that actually work? To just assume you’re going to be the nominee even though most people voted for the other person? Since the other person in this […]

Maybe they just want to vote for somebody who can find their state on a map

Via Taylor Marsh comes word that Obama is already offering reasons why he’s going to lose in Kentucky (Fox News, chain mails, stupidity), including this gem: “What it says is that I’m not very well known in that part of the country,” Obama said. “Sen. Clinton, I think, is much better known, coming from a […]

Conference call with Hillary

Yesterday afternoon I was extremely honored to participate in a conference call with Sen. Clinton and a bunch of other pro-Hillary bloggers, thanks to the good offices of Peter Daou, the Clinton campaign’s internet guru. The Senator was warm, gracious, and every bit as sharp and energetic as ever. (How does the woman do it?) […]

Welcome, Operation Code Blue!

From HillBuzz, the exciting news we’ve all been waiting for! Apparently, according to FOX News, the Obama campaign has hired 400 bloggers to influence the public discourse and sway Hillary voters to “remember we are all Democrats”, to give up Clinton’s cause, and to become dutiful citizens of the Obama Nation. Also, it’s been noted […]

Blast from the past: Obama calls Sen. Barbara Boxer “a cutie” (Plus: update on how we can fight back)

By · Friday, May 16th, 2008 · 4 Comments »

In the wake of sweetie-gate, someone emailed me this story from a year ago: Obama, speaking at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco, raised eyebrows Monday at a fundraiser for Sen. Barbara Boxer when, as we reported, the Illinois Senator described his Democratic colleague from California as “a fighter, a leader, a charmer, a […]

Women’s boycott of Obama percolates up to the mainstream media

I am woman, hear me roar. ABC’s Political Punch reports on “female supporters of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton who are angry — at the Democratic Party, at the Obama campaign, or at the general situation that sees their candidate facing tough times, in their view, in part because of sexism.” I’m glad our collective voices […]

I got your “sweetie” right here

Maybe we should just be glad he doesn’t call women bitches and hos, like his buddy Jay-Z. (via Corrente)

Edwards proves that he’s as much a fraud as I always thought he was

Edwards endorses Obama. Why today? To distract attention from Obama’s humiliating defeat in West Virginia, of course. Anything to keep people from noticing that Hillary is winning.
