What Barry Hath Wrought [someone]
— Open Blog

OK, it looks like Ace is too busy having a life to post this, so I'll put it up myself. Via Marc Ambinder, a video of pure awesome hilarity from outside the Florida/Michigan rules dispute:

The real good stuff starts halfway in.

A popcorn cabal has to be behind all this-there just isn't any other reasonable explanation.






I mean other than the fact that the Dims aren't so much a political party as they are an organied peeve.

5 What a season! First, hysterical (as in wacko) environmentalism drives my production for ethanol rather than flour and foodstuffs. Now, the hysterical (as in comic relief) Democrat primary drives my production for popcorn.

It's a perfect storm! One season of this and I'm retiring in Tahiti.

Thanks, Nancy!

12 Aaah, sorry Stace. I had just posted it on Pal2Pal, so had the link right at hand. There is a 3rd one where the woman has a big bruise on her arm. I guess it got physical inside the convention.

13 The dems have put so much into attracting the youth vote, they may have completely underestimated how angry grannies get when someone screws with them or tries to dictate to them.

By the time you are my age, you know what you want and you know what you don't and have no patience with those who try to tell you what you should or should not think or do.

I'm neither a dem nor a Hillary supporter, but I've come to despise Barack Obama, so, against all that is holy, I'm rooting for Hill.

Posted by: Sara at May 31, 2008 07:23 PM (Wi/N0)

14 Sara re: the Manhattanite for Clinton/McCain.

Good stuff. I think she's both justifiably a) angry with the voting and b) annoyed with the security(?) guy and his ID tracking. I'd like to have seen a longer sequence to see more context, but a voter/delegate who raises opposition within the family only to get harassed for doing so seems heavy handed.

The only thing that would make this election more fun would be Hillary losing via scheming to Obama at the convention and then Hillary announcing an independent run making '08 a three-way.

I don't think there'd be enough popcorn to get me through.

16 I could vote for Hillary if she'd assure me Bill didn't get back in the White House.

And if she were not such a socialist with her "it takes a Village" bullcrap and her universal health care/raise taxes crap.

I do think she would/will modify her stance on Iraq. I think she is a smart woman who will listen to the Generals and in the end, do what is best. Besides, I think it will be a moot point by November anyway.

29 As annoying as Hannity can be sometimes, he helped out, too, someone.  He got Jerry Wright in his craw and did not let go.  I'm not fond of constant repetitiveness, but it does get the job done.  I can't always sit in the car for three hours at a time to catch the full show of either one, so having something repeated later in the show is helpful.  Jerry was just one thing, but he was a big thing.  Hannity needs to keep it going... all of it... everything he finds.

30 The Florida primary got moved up KNOWING the delegates wouldn't be counted. Since the Florida superdelagates are officials in the party and moved the election up, shouldn't their votes be cut in half too? Or at least if they are going to support Obama?

Posted by: liontooth at June 01, 2008 12:23 AM (n3pxb)


"Rush, you magnificent bastard."

Amen to this!   The Republican establishment is to stupid to undertand just how brilliant is the doctor of Democracy.  And I say this as a former brain-dead liberal' mugged by reality one Sept morning who began to listen to Rush in 2003.

I cannot help thinking just how stupid I was before that day came along.  I guess I have been improving because I finally started tuning into Mark Levin about a month after McCain received the nomination.

I have experienced Change and this gives me Hope; who needs O!

That lady gets my applause. My faith just got a booster shot watching her fight for every vote to count--be that democrat or republican so far as I'm concerned.

There's been a lot of antagonism towards the Ferraro generation, much older than this lady in the video, from the left for speaking out, and from the right for speaking out. But I'm glad to hear them fight rather than roll over with a wimper.

ItÂ’s never right to push your mother or grandmother under the bus. The womenÂ’s libbers of the Â’60s were not anti-war demonstrators so much as they were WWII vet wives whoÂ’d been dumped for newer models after bearing their husbandÂ’s children and reaching the age of 40. THESE aging democrat women are NOT the Code Pink losers. Do not be so stupid as to compare those two populations merely because they are both comprised of female Democrats. However, these aging democrat womenÂ’s children WERE the anti-war protesters of the Â’60s; and those anti-war demonstrators are the very politicians in the DNC who are throwing their mothers under the bus. As Obama does, so does the DNC. Despite 50 years of service to the Democrat Party, these aging women who are avid voters have been disenfranchised by their children. There is no karmatic excuse for bagging your mom and tossing her into the river because she wouldnÂ’t just go along.

So give Ferraro her microphone and let her have her say. Although she didnÂ’t suffer as her constituents did all those years as her life was privileged, none the less, Ferraro has consistently represented her constituents, the wives of WWII vets and their daughters. More power to her; she has the balls to confront the bullies in her party.

McCain is counting on their vote.

The DNC needs a house cleaning, anyway. The odd thing is that for all of the equal rights that white women fought for on behalf of blacks and all American minorities, thereÂ’s no gratitude for the woman. Michelle Obama has a special place in mind for older white women. And Ferraro ainÂ’t going there without a cat fight. This is as close to NASCAR as one could wish for in the race to the White House. WeÂ’re witnessing where equal rights draw the lanes for traffic that will eventually affect the GOP as popular dynamics go.

Democrats are "obsessed with every vote?"

Looks like she bought into the bush stole the 2000 election thing.

Maybe she should check Mark Herron's memo about Military absentee voters:

(kind of crude-a google cache of a freerepublic mirror of Drudge's original post, but it's there - thank you Newsbusters)

Sheesh sweetheart, just because YOU believe it doesn't make it true.

Oh yeah, you democrats do love to count votes, sometimes over and over again until the outcome satisfies you. WA-GOV 2004 anyone? 3 times until Gregoire won, then "Okay, we're done! It looks right now."

43 Larry Johnson is still flogging this mythical Michelle Obama tape.  He's saying he will release more info on Monday.  He's really stringing this thing out.. like at least 8 or so posts on it  within the last two weeks.

The WACs and the WAVs were dispursed by the same mentality that still governs the DNC. Whereas, female members of the military today are promoted by the same mentality that continues to govern the GOP. Even Eisenhower had the good sense to change parties before campaigning for POTUS.

The Democrat Party that populated the KKK is fronted today by the NAACP and ACLU. Never mind that the first blacks appointed to national posts were Republicans, and that MLK plagarized the GOP black delegate speech from the Republican National Convention by Reverend Archibald Carey, Sr.

ERA & NOW also enjoy the DNC shackles of liberation: Werk macht Frei.

Welcome to the GOP big tent, minorities all.

Yea.. I know.  But it's also fun to read the opinions of the Hilary supporters on there.  Many of them hate Obama, and many of them say they will vote for McCain.  Not sure if they are legit, but some percentage of them must be.

50 WASPs, too. They didn't get veterans' benefits until a few years ago. And while we're being all historical, the original women's suffragists/abolitionists felt they were betrayed by Congress when black men got the right to vote decades before women.

53 Let me add onto my previous comment. To whit: the Democrats sometimes DO love to count every vote, no matter the provenance. See the recent Indiana tooth-gnashing. Oh yeah, and Motor-Voter. A great idea in and of itself. I agree with it in concept. However, in every state they've instituted it, Democrats have intentionally, maybe maliciously, eviscerated the oversight for verifying eligibility to the point it is nearly meaningless. 9 of 19 9-11 hijackers were registered to vote. Also, that puts the borders/amnesty support in a new light, doesn't it? Democrats will take any vote in a storm - legal, illegal, live or dead.  And they blame Republicans for voter fraud. They talk and talk about the integrity of the vote (Deibold electronic machines, et al), but studiously avoid the integrity of the VOTER.

And they'll sign up ANYONE, real or not. Google ACORN registration to see what I mean. Obama is allied with this group.

Unfortunately, their machinations have usually little impact. The axiom related to the original beneficiaries of the franchise holds true. Most voters who vote consistently continue to be white male landowners.

54 May 2006: When Meeks ran as an Independent for governor of Illinois, he announced: “Come on with me, white churches. Call me and tell me to run for governor. You’ll have [Republican nominee], who believes in abortion and gay rights and [Democratic Gov.], who believes in abortion and gay rights. Theologically, politically, for the white conservative voter, I’m their guy. I have their philosophy. 7” October 2006: Meeks’ church sponsored a “Halloween fright night” which “consigned to the flames of hell two mincing young men wearing body glitter who were supposed to be homosexuals.”8 February 2007: A newsletter by the SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER (SPLC) included Meeks in its “Top Ten leading black religious voices in the anti-gay movement.” According to their profile:9 “Last year, he ran for governor as a virtual single-issue candidate, drawing national support from Christian fundamentalists by boldly vowing to fight marriage equality at every turn.” Despite his virulent anti-gay stance, in June 2002, Meeks invited accused sex offender R. Kelly to sing at his church’s kindergarten shortly after the singer was released on bond for child pornography. Typically brave behavior from Barry: Jan 2005: During the critical moments when the Illinois General Assembly passed a bill to prevent LGBT discrimination, Meeks actively campaigned against the measure - and then delivered his vote: Nay. Obama was apparently unable, unwilling or uninterested in lobbying Meeks to do otherwise – even to vote “present” on the measure. The bill would have failed had it received one less vote. But Barry wouldn’t be comfortable in lots of Roman Catholic Churches because they are so intolerant toward homosexuals. One more time: In April 2004, Barack Obama told a reporter from the Chicago Sun-Times that he had three spiritual mentors or counselors: Jeremiah Wright, James Meeks, and Father Michael Pfleger-for a change of pace, a white Catholic preacher who has a close personal feeling for the man he calls (as does Obama) Minister Farrakhan. funky chicken on June 1, 2008 at 10:39 AM

I just figured it out.  Democrats have this strange propensity for finding reasons to stay depressed.  Did any of these people learn that rules/laws count?  This is the 2000 election all over again...I remember the press saying Bush would actually win the popular vote and lose the electoral college and the Dem's were fine with that until the opposite happened. 

In this primary season, the dolts in the crowd were fine with the rules because they thought Hillary was going to annointed.   OOP's the rules got in the way again!!!  Let's have every vote count after we know the results and our candidate is losing.  This is the problem with a culture that glorifies political correctness and that has a party that relies on victimhood and self-hate.  Unfortunately this time, the victims were victimized by the the self-flagullating, protectors of the wronged.  I think we need to take these people out back and give them spanking.

AS IF the DNC holds consistency a virtue--

If so reference again Ted. K.'s comment re: DNC Mich/Fla 50% vote/delegate recognition rationale according to their Chairman, the party mustn't reward those who break the rules--so adjust the DNC stand re: illegal immigrants accordingly.

The only consistency in politics is to expect the shaft, McCain included. But what you see is what you get with McCain whose cards are all out on the table. Whereas excavasion on Obama not only links him with the Black Panthers, SDS, FARC and Hezbollah, but with IRAN funding his POTUS campaign! Berry, better than most politicians, illustrates the phrase, the more things change the more they stay the same.

Who in their right mind wouldn't be relieved to hear people like this woman on video have their say within the DNC in the national dialogue?

#19 Richard Romano - there is a big difference between John McCain and either of the Democrat contenders.  John McCain has a history of not hating the United States or the bulk of its population.  Based on personal history that cannot be said about either Sens. Obama or Clinton.

Terrible that the choice falls to which person doesn't hate the country they are campaigning to lead, isn't it?
