Check it out. It might change your view of a few things….
Howie, Donna, Miss Nancy, Senator Obama, ‘Fittin’ Harry Reid, Rahm ‘The Rabbit’ Emmanuel, Senators Schumer, Kerry, Kennedy, there is someone on the phone for you.
Sez it’s very urgent!
Yeah, something about don’t forget to pick up your ‘bag’.
No guesses as to what it’s stuffed with.
Your government for sale to…
Well, whoever wants to buy.
…and this is why:
instead of hysteria about ‘bitches’ and ‘racists’ we get measure thoughtful campaigns such as this from Eden and his crew.
I do have a question for ya though: ‘Do you really think that just sitting on yer backsides and watching TeeBee or lurking in the threads in the ‘sphere is gonna turn the country around?
Yeah, I know….you’ve all got jobs, kids, house payments etc. You are buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuusssssssssssssy! Well…did ya ever stop to think that the reason your are so busy is that the uber-rich through their
sockpuppets have appropriated the cabbage, the molah, the frikin’ money to such and extent that there really, really isn’t much ‘left over’ for you and your children. That thought ever cross your mind?
And I really hate to break it to ya but….
It’s gonna get worse. This next ten years will tell the tale. Will the SuperClass and their meatpuppets the Republican and ‘Democrat’ Party be able to finally kill of the will of the people and their representatives, members few though they be of the Democratic Party…progressive orgs like MoveOn.com. the afore mentioned Courage Campaign, folks like this and this and these folks at ActBlue!
It’s really up to you and I will be frank from what I’ve heard lately you are not up to it. People are under the delusion that Barry is gonna win the GE and he will magically transform the existing government almost overnight. This is highly unlikely for many a reason and it’s not my intent to get into it here. If you wanna argue meet me in the comments. And bring you more than a butterknife…it will be a shootout at the OK Corral partner.
This election is gonna be the last wake up call you are gonna get. I highly recommend you not leave it to the Pelosi’s, Emmanuel’s and Schumer’s much less the disappointing Dean and the deranged Brazile to do what is really your job:
Yeah….He won Oregon…Yadda. So what. Get a load of this:
So, now, after 10,000 simulated elections, Obama wins 5,508 times (plus the 300 ties), and McCain wins 4,192 times. Obama has a 58.1% (55.1% plus 3% for ties) probability of winning and McCain has a 41.9% probability of winning. Obama has slipped a bit against McCain, but maintains an “uncomfortable” lead.
Here is the distribution of electoral votes [FAQ] from the simulations:
Not so bad you say?
Now look at this:
Tuesday, May 20, 2008 at 9:47 pm
|89.7% probability of winning||10.2% probability of winning|
|Mean of 295 electoral votes||Mean of 243 electoral votes|
Today, after 10,000 simulated elections, Clinton wins 8,969 times (plus she gets the 10 ties), and McCain wins 1,021 times. Clinton has a 89.8% probability of winning a general election held now, and McCain has a 10.2% probability of winning. Clinton edges forward, ever so slightly.
Here is the distribution of electoral votes [FAQ] from the simulations:
Okay so I’m glad I’m not a SuperDelegate….but, and I’m talkin’ to those of your out there who are adamant about not letting McSame get elected, if you are serious about that you’d better put down the damn Kool-Aid ’cause no amount of ‘make nice’ by Barkey is gonna change this dynamic. Barry’s been going downhill since Texas and he ain’t comin’ back. Yeah, McSame has said a lot of stupid shit…news flash so has Barkey. Clinton, not so much she’s been astute enough to keep her mouth shut. And all this Monte Carloing is before most Americans really now the Rezko to Auchi toss much less the latest Barky food for ReThug attack ads.
What’s Ol’ Barky done now?
Uh….it’s Michelle this time…and it’s not gonna be pretty if this post by Larry Johnson is accurate.
Email yer SDs and tell ‘me you really, really really don’t want this to happen:
planning the next great big give away to your corporate pals, gonna be hard to top the farm bill that’s for sure, but…well, you see…What with:
Impeachment of the table….
Another 178 Billion for Bush’s excellent adventure….
No action on literally dozens of folks accused of everything from child rape to big time embezzlement to a guy changing legislation after it was sighed by your best pal Mr. Decider…..
Some have made up their minds like this lady:
That it’s time for you to go. Go away where you can no longer damage the Democratic Party, no longer damage our nation, no longer damage our society.
As mah cousin Pat allu sez: ‘Don’t let the door knob hit ya where the good Lord split ya!’ on your way out.
Barry…Senator Obama….What say you sir?
Do you hear what she is saying?
U.S. out of Iraq starting NOW!
And…Genurul ‘Betrayus’….Sir, bloviate all you want abut ‘military calculus….’ yadda…yadda….yadda….’ Sir,
General you are never gonna get the citizenry to agree that 2 + 2 = 5. That might be ‘The Math’ for bonehead losers like
yourself and your boss ‘The Decider’ but the rest of us know better….
Yep and we also know just what we think of this guy.
Asshole, no doubt but folks are, as they are apt to do, moving on to a new opinon about Mr. Decidedly Stupid and his Sidkick ‘Shooter’.
That purchase of a big chunk of Paraguay by the ‘D’ man is starting to look like a good idea.
Were I you Generul, Sir, I’d start looking for a nice fat gig at General Dynamics. For you, Sir, medals and all are going under the bus.
Watch this and see what the ‘Democrat’ ‘leaders’ of the Congress are thinking….
I got a question for ya Conyers ya balless piece of buzzard-bait.
Chairman of exactly what?
A Congressional Committee more concerned with re-election than with their sworn Constitutional duty? Nice of you to admit it on TV but then you have nothing
but contempt for the American citizenry.
Well, I hope everyone who sees this posts it to their blog so a lot of people can see what you reall are: Spineless Polecat, Sir. That’s what you are.

Apologies for the lack of updates since the drama went down in the Senate — I was trying to get my facts straight before writing.
Here’s where we stand right now to the best of my knowledge.
There will be a cloture vote at 4:30 on Monday. There are two potential outcomes here.
a.) Republicans get 60 votes. In which case, there will only be one amendment pending to the final bill, and that is Feingold/Dodd on blanket warrants, I believe. That will get tabled quite easily (much like Judiciary was today), and then the Intelligence Bill as we know it will get a a vote for final passage.
b.) We stop Republicans from getting 60 votes, and we’re right back where we left off today — with no agreement on whether or not there is a 50 or 60 vote threshold to pass amendments.
Why is this a big deal?
Well, because there are a number of amendments out there that would serve as "poison pills," forcing a presidential veto. One or two of those might even get 50 votes (Feinstein’s call to make FISA the exclusive means of electronic surveillance).
It’s also worth noting that Dodd will object to any requirement that 60 votes be needed to pass an germane amendment, which would further muck up and extend the process.
Finally, I am hearing that we will have the votes necessary to stop the invocation of cloture, if only on the grounds that there has been no debate or opportunity by colleagues in the Senate to offer amendments.
But that’s when it gets even more interesting …
Monday is the State of the Union, and you can be sure this will be a major topic of the speech. If one were cynical, they might conclude that Republicans wanted the President to go into the speech without a FISA revision for political purposes.
What’s more … without an extension, this thing goes black on the 1st — that’s next Thursday.
If we are able to ward off the cloture vote, there is almost no way in hell a bill gets passed before that deadline. None. Not with all the amendments, debate, and Dodd filibuster pending. Which makes it all the more likely that one of two more things will happen.
a.) There will be an extension of some kind. Maybe a month, maybe two weeks … we shall see.
b.) We have a real showdown on our hands: No bill has been passed because Dems don’t want to eavesdrop on terrorists vs. Republicans think its more important to give telecoms a free ride than to eavesdrop on terrorists.
Even more drama? Ok. Presidential style …
Everyone is going to be in D.C. for the State of the Union Address, that is a given. Which means, Obama and Clinton will actually have to vote (that’s novel!). What’s more, they can show some real leadership by convincing their endorsers in the Senate (McCaskill, Nelson, Bayh) who voted to table Judiciary to stop the Republicans on Monday.
And if Republicans do manage to get sixty votes, a filibuster is certain to ensue in the subsequent 30 hours. Which of them will stick around into the next day to support that effort?
So, that’s what I think I know right now. Will update with any additional information.

|Hearing now that Reid filed a 30-day extension and then filed cloture on that extension. If cloture is not invoked on Monday at 4:30, we’ll then vote on invoking cloture on extension.|
This latest shows that you, yes you are being heard, hey! How about we all yell a little louder!
Tip: Hit that Courage Campaign linky and give DiFi the gotdamn word on this. Eden and his posse are the real deal and the more we can get behind him the clearer what we are saying will be heard!
Everywhere I go in Free Left Blogistan from the A-List blogs to the tiniest voice in the ‘sphere….
Folks are reacting with disgust towards Senator ‘Hope’ and the word on The Hill?
She ain’t inevitable no more. Now mind you this is in the threads. The posters are still studying the entrails of all the dead birds the pollsters killed last week. Sadly, to no avail. No one but Bowers is willing to say who’s ahead, he sez Obama, and he basically did that just to see what would happen. I reckon how you vote, or in Obama’s case don’t bother so, does matter to folks.
So the counter attack from progressives has begun. Those Dems who figured to protect their ‘Reich’ flank from conservative attack once they got to the general by using the techniques of ‘The Rabbit’ Emmanuel and ‘Chuckie Cheese’ Schumer and emulating the rhetoric, racism, jingoistic nativism of the ReThuglicans have used so well in past elections now find themselves exposed on their left to the likes of Edwards, Biden (yeah he got a bump this week) and even Dennis the Menace (I like lot’s of things about Kucinich but he’s not really seriously running) on the issues of:
Lying to get elected…Obama really screwed up there this week. People finally woke up to the fact that he holds every possible position on every issue.
Talking out of all side of her mouth…The Hill doesn’t quite ‘get’ Youtube.
Still a dead heat but Edwards is looking pretty dangerous right now. Clinton is flailing and the worst possible thing that could happen to Obama did.
People are asking; ‘Who is this Obama guy anyway?’
