More or less. I think he was still experiencing the effects from his flaming red-hot tantrum, induced by the news that Hillary beat the Obamessiah (compounded by the fact that Fox called it first -- and was right). But I guess that describes most of the nutroots; without outrage, where is the motivation to blog?
Nevertheless a Hillary win, for some reason, doesn't really matter:
Remember, this is no longer a normal race. We're no longer talking delegate counts since bizarrely, the measure of victory in this primary has been discarded. We're no longer talking popular vote, since Clinton can't win that without throwing in a bunch of hypothetical "ifs" -- as in, "IF you count Michigan, and IF you count Florida, and IF you don't count the caucuses, and IF you don't count weekend contests, and IF you don't count black people..." You get the idea.No I don't get the idea. Obama can make the same argument, only if he makes it, it would be true: IF you don't count women, Obama has the popular vote. Hillary can't win without not counting black people? She has more votes than Obama, counting actual votes. Black people who voted included. Suggesting Hillary is discounting the black votes, to gain a talking point, is very unfair. But I guess you just have to pick up what Kos is puttin down or something. You get the idea.
If you do, then you probably get the idea that it's not about votes in a democratic process, it's about electability, which actually is, er, money.
Which campaign looks more electable on this front? The campaign that is flush with cash and can easily raise more, or the campaign that is scrambling to get out of debt?Last I checked, Americans elected candidates, not campaigns.
I don't know who said it, but the argument was made that Hillary has an advantage over Obama. All of her skeletons have been brought out of the closet, in plain view. Everybody knows about Hillary. Obama on the other hand, is the mysterious Dr. Hope and Mr. Change. And come time for the general, he's going to be Dr. Bitter and Mr. Wright's and Mr. Ayers' friend, and God knows what else.
This contest is the logical reductio of the identity-group fetishization that they've been peddling for years. They're just feeling suckered because they plumped for the establishment diversity candidate and then found themselves out-diversified.Indeed. If Hillary's a racist, Kos is a misogynist.
