Here’s a suggestion to all those in the sphere trying to make a case for their candidate: check your spelling.  It’s hard on the readers and it makes you look stupid.   A comment section on a blog doesn’t have to be a crystal chandelier but it doesn’t have to look like the floor in a well used truck stop restroom.  More effort people, more effort.

As a long-suffering Minnesota Vikings fan, I was delighted to hear from Nita Lowey on Meet the Press that being down over a hundred delegates is a tie.    I guess that means that the Vikings have, in fact, tied four Superbowls.  Sweet!

There are plenty of reasons political campaigns may turn people off or make them want to throw up everything they’ve ever eaten.  This is one of them.

He’s not even the sharpest one in the shed.  Rep. Steve King: tool.

Like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, apparently the Clintons and Rush Limbaugh are frenemies.  One of the great moments of Clinton hypocrisy comes in the first indent under Left Field:

Interestingly, the Clinton campaign has engaged in the most unusual tactic of embracing the right in order to wrestle from Obama a nomination that would seem to be his based upon math alone. One thing that seems to have escaped scrutiny up until now is that years after Rush Limbaugh called Bill Clinton’s daughter a dog, the former president was actually a guest on Limbaugh’s show.

Poor David Shuster.  Maybe he should have gone with a straight-up revolting remark instead of making a fair point using an ill-chosen word.  If Texas was the Clinton’s’ goal, then getting into bed with Rush was scarcely worth the short term thrill and that itching, oozing sore it leaves might be a real drag.

Dear States That Considered Moving Up Their Primaries or Caucuses But Didn’t Because of Those Pesky DNC Rules,



Everyone who doesn’t think Florida and Michigan should have consequences and in fact should get some kind of reward for their rule-breaking.
