Monday Blogging – 8/25/08

Hope you all had a good weekend, now it’s time to get depressed! 10:15am From MSNBC: [The McCain campaign] will be prepared to show McCain’s “home” in Hanoi by using images of his cell. They claim they have not overused the POW element and insist they have “underused it.” From 2004: McCain said that he […]

Playing for delegates

Marc Ambinder of the Atlantic is reporting that ‘Clinton Campaign staffers and former campaign staffers are being urged by the Clinton campaign’s finance department to turn in their outstanding expense receipts by the end of the week.’ That could be a sign that Hillary has finally given up the ghost. However, the Clinton camp seems […]

Clinton triumphant in Kentucky: And no one cared, Part 2

And no one cared, Part 1 here “I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that anyone who supported me – the 17 million people who have voted for me – understand what a grave error it would be not to vote for Sen. McCain … uh, Sen. Obama, and against Sen. McCain,” […]

Obama dominates NC, Clinton barely wins IN

According to MSNBC, Obama has defeated Clinton by 14 percent in North Carolina, a race called as soon as the polls closed. Clinton’s narrow win in Indiana wasn’t certain until after 1 am—7 hours after the polls closed—where it now looks like she will have won by 2 percent. My initial thoughts The idea that […]

Hillary challenges Obama to an old-fashioned debate

Hillary Clinton is calling for another debate between her and Barack Obama. In the wake of the awful ABC debate, the Clinton campaign is suggesting a different format: In the spirit of the Lincoln-Douglas debates, we make this proposal: Senator Clinton and Senator Obama will participate in a 90-minute debate in an open public forum. […]

Hillary wins Pennsylvania

MSNBC is projecting that Hillary Clinton has defeated Barack Obama in today’s Pennsylvania primary. Now we wait to find out how big the victory is… Update 12:20am It looks like Hillary won by about 10%. Just enough to keep the race going, not enough to change anything. Goodnight. The morning after I agree with Yglesias: […]

Hillary's boomerang syndrome

Today is the day. Pennsylvania is voting for the Democratic nominee and unless Obama wins, which is extremely unlikely, the race will go on. The attacks will continue. The media will continue to numb us with their inane coverage. And I will continue to make these wonderfully insightful posts about the whole thing. You’re welcome. […]


If you’ve been roaming around the political blogosphere (oh how I hate that word!) you probably noticed quite a firestorm about ABC’s Democratic Debate that took place Wednesday night. My take: Obama got destroyed. He’s the front-runner and predictably ended up taking the brunt of the so-called “tough” questions which were amplified by Clinton’s own […]

Friday ramblings

Some longer clips from Jeremiah Wright’s sermons have popped up on YouTube. Watch the one about 9/11 here, and the one about damning America here. (For those new to the story, Obama is taking heat for associating with Wright, his ex-pastor.) The larger context does not really change the substance of his remarks, but it […]
