Look at the waste!
Millions of dollars in debt because the DNC allowed the party to fracture the country along gender, race, age, and class. Class I could see--we need a debate on that.
And Obama needs some class. MSNBC right now is rehabilitating him (or is this payback for voting for Cheney's 2005 'energy' bill authorizing 29 new nukes?) on the fingering Hillary display.
He lost the debate. It was the first time he was held accountable for things his friend McCain will use against him. (Even McCain would be better than Bush? You think policy comes from Bush? Have you heard that Cheney could be his veep? Nothing would change!)
Did he lose us the election? MSNBC turned down the volume playing the references to Hillary as he flipped her off. And they inverted the order---showing him brushing off (with sound here) the media). When the reality was he had already introduced Hillary to the narration that accompanied the flipoff/shoulder brush/wipe her like dog poop off your foot routine.
Is it the pressure? The race went on too long. Shame on the DNC for not figuring out a way to do a one-day nomination--a one day open vote all over the country to pick the front runner.
It's McGovern all over again. Only he had some class.
Thanks a lot Sisco Kid. How are those 'present' votes on gun control working out in Chicago right now? I'm sure Jon Stewart will let you explain.
