Our First PUMA Victory! Still More Work to Do…

Well, sports fans, it looks like Hillary’s name WILL be placed into nomination after all. Step One is complete!

As for Step Two, there’s quite a bit more work to do. You see, this is going to be ceremonial only – a little pat on the head for the pesky females who won’t shut up and do what Daddy tells them. Oh yes, forcing Hillary’s delegates to vote for Barack Obama is EXACTLY what we wanted. Thanks, Oh Beneficent Party Leaders!

During the Denver gathering, Democrats will officially choose Obama to run against Republican John McCain this fall, but the state delegations will do a traditional roll call for their nominee’s vanquished primary opponent as well.

Obama and Clinton — fierce rivals then, reluctant allies now — agreed to the arrangement after weeks of negotiations between their respective aides. The two sides made the announcement Thursday in a collegial joint statement.

“I am convinced that honoring Senator Clinton’s historic campaign in this way will help us celebrate this defining moment in our history and bring the party together in a strong united fashion,” said Obama, an Illinois senator.

Heh. Heh. Heh. Remember what he said just a short while ago, on August 7th?

“As is true in all conventions, we’re still working out the mechanics, the coordination,” Obama said. One such issue is whether there will be a convention roll call on Clinton’s nomination, he said.

“I’m letting our respective teams work out details,” he said. Asked if that meant he wouldn’t object to her name being placed in nomination and a vote taken, Obama said: “I didn’t say that. I said that they’re working it out.”

Mwahahahaha! Sure, you wanted this all along, Oba-Moi.

Here is Hillary’s statement on this issue:

Added Clinton, a New York senator: “With every voice heard and the party strongly united, we will elect Senator Obama president of the United States and put our nation on the path to peace and prosperity once again.”

“A New York Senator?” Way to minimize the person with scary ladyparts, Yahoo!

In any case, I think we are all aware that this is not what we wanted, but without Hillary on board, the first step would never have happened. The next step is a floor fight.

Come on, Barack, what are you worried about? If you have the delegates and the votes, why don’t you magnanimously allow the lady her day? Don’t you realize how cathartic that would be for all of us Hillary supporters?

Or is it just possible that you’re afraid buyers’ remorse has set in; that after the Wright fiasco, America doesn’t want you enough to vote you into office; and that without the DNC’s thumb on the scales, you cannot be the nominee?

Barack, darling, wouldn’t it be better to find this out NOW than in November, after uncounted millions of dollars have been wasted on your failed campaign against John McCain?

We cannot give up now. The PFKD is shaking in its boots. Fear the power of the people, New Plutocrats. We will not go quietly!

  1. Like your new site, all spiffy and clean looking. I went to your old site and was reading and suddenly, FLIP! “Oh nose, she’s got a pirate redirector!” Duh!

    Clinton’s too tough and smart to go away. She’ll come away with something prime or some very big IOU’s.

  2. Hee! Thanks, Timmy B! I’m so glad you haven’t fallen prey to Hillary Derangement Syndrome. I hope there are a lot more like you out there. Seems like the ones that like to name-call and demonize are the loudest. Isn’t that always the truth?

    It seems so crazy. All we want is a fair shot at the nomination. They are really making us work for it, that I can tell you! Jeez Louise!

    hey madamab, so glad you had that quote on the radio. He really is playing the orwell card. Clinton really is Goldstein for them. what’s that blessing/curse? “may you live in interesting times”? I love the look of your new place btw.

    I guess you could call this a ray of hope. But how could the party in all honesty do anything less? The nominee must be decided at the convention. It’s way too close to just call it for Obama. I think we all have been pretty disgusted at the turn of events since the superdelegates for Obama coming out party the day of the last primaries. The truth is any delegate can vote his or her own choice and conscience on any ballot, not just the party elite. The whole point of the superdelegate nonsense was so we wouldn’t nominate another Fritz, right? Well, if Obama buys into this “Who’s tougher on Russia?” line of reasoning, that alone should be enough to make cooler heads reconsider.


  5. obama going down in flames in states where he had a lead, some of his core supporters, including AA’s leaving him, SD’s suffering heartburn, pondering if they have made a big mistake…..GO HILLARY!!!

  6. Flying Junior – Exactly! The choice is between Obama and Clinton, not Obama and McCain. It’s so simple, but the media and the DNC/Obama conglomerate refuse to tell the truth. They are addicted to their Precious, for different but complementary reasons.

    If I were an SD, I know which way I’d be leaning! I don’t care how much you hate Hillary for whatever reason. Winning good, losing bad. Don’t we want to kick McCain’s ass? I know I do!

    Gary – I’ve been thinking of doing a play about life under President Obama (Brave New World/1984/Handmaid’s Tale style), but I keep scaring myself. Maybe I can make it funny enough to be entertaining instead of terrifying. 🙂
