Stupid Texans

Oh well. Nothing huge happened. Both sides got what they wanted: Hillary got her moral victory and Obama held firm in the delegate count. Clinton has now firmly established that she can beat Obama by 4 points and lose a caucus by only 4 in a state tailor-made for her... given that Obama spends the prior week getting triple-teamed by her, John McCain, and the Canadian Conservative Party, anyway. I am starting to wonder: is the Clinton campaign committed to raking in the moral victories all the way to a convention they have no chance of successfully brokering? If this primary season continues in this same way it's progressed so far, she will continue to eek out small victories against Obama in states where she has the advantage and get blown off the field everywhere else after blowing huge leads, and will show up at the convention without having made much ground at all in the delegate margins. In fact, even if she won every state left with 60% of the vote (a feat she has pulled off only once in this entire primary), she would still be short on delegates. On what basis, then, can she make a case for the presidency over Obama?

Meanwhile, the obvious nominee spends the next 5 months picking buckshot out of both sides, and Hillary continues to tell people that John McCain is a better candidate than the guy who's assured to win the Democratic nomination.

Apropos of nothing but bacony goodness, here's a "bacon" cup your beloved might actually allow in the house.

Sorry man, I had to vote for Hillary. She saved me from certain sodomy in a mall bathroom one time by shooting a perp with a TOW missle.

By they way I can't tell you how much love I feel from the "stupid Texans" headline. I still love you like a brother, but for that you have to swallow a bag of monkey nuts.
