Popcorn Politics

You know, for three candidates who have so very much in common, the media has done one hell of a job making them seem diametrically opposed.  With today’s headline in the Huffington Post, “Clinton Camp Considering Nuclear Option,” John McCain must be getting the popcorn ready.  If it doesn’t stick in his dentures, that is. 

With at least 50 percent of the Democratic Party’s 30-member Rules and Bylaws Committee committed to Clinton, her backers could — when the committee meets at the end of this month — try to ram through a decision to seat the disputed 210-member Florida and 156-member Michigan delegations. Such a decision would give Clinton an estimated 55 or more delegates than Obama, according to Clinton campaign operatives.

As an aside, I do want to mention here: say what you will about that idiot Carville, he does give us some memorable lines:

If she gave him one of her cojones, they’d both have two.

Face it, that’s funny.  And if she pulls off that “Nuclear Option,” it just may be true.

  1. The latest projections show the Dems winning 240-245 seats in the House and 53-55 seats in the Senate. And yet, their presidential candidates are limping along like a couple of wounded ducks.

    So clearly, there’s a very odd disconnect in this country. They hate the Democratic Congress (11% approval rating), but they want to give them a bigger majority in both houses. They also hate the Republican President (28% approval rating), but they want to send somebody just like him back into the White House.

    Maybe you all can explain this to me, but it doesn’t seem to make any sense.


  2. It’s all about trust.

    Voters don’t have any left, and so many tend toward the grandfather figure to take care of them.

    That whole Vermont Succession thing sounds better all the time . . . *chuckle* Yeah, right.

    We’re so screwed.

    I can understand their fustration. I also love my ‘California Republic’ t-shirt. And quite frankly, at the moment, our relationship with Washington DC seems more like an abusive marriage than a blissful union. Congress and the White House are bent on destroying our lives. Then they buy us $600 tax-rebates as a “sorry” for ruining our lives. And after getting back into our good graces with meaningless stunts, they expect us to re-elect them (the political equilvalent of makeup sex).

    Having said that, I don’t see a divorce coming anytime time soon.
