lmao, that too...forgot about that one. Ah, now you've got me all sentimental for the bile-flavor-Kool-Aid shock of the first presidential election I was old enough to follow...

I remember when I was 10 reading that in a Springsteen biography (he was my favorite musician then and still is my number two) and thinking Reagan was an idiot.

When I was 10.

Did any of you watch Michael Moore's Canadian Bacon? There is a great scene where John Candy is driving up to Canada (the movie is basically a story of an American president who decides to start a war against Canada to improve his ratings), and in the pick up he's singing Born in the USA, then gets past the chorus, pauses, and keeps singing Boooooorn in the USA!! on endless repeat.

Damn. Too bad I already voted.

And wouldn't register Republican if you paid me one million shiny silver dollars.



But other than that, yeah go Mitt!!

If only I didn't live in Michigan and actually would've had my candidate on the ballot.

I find it interesting that the "core conservative base" (as diamond puts it) of the Republican party is so angry about McCain.

Because it seems like out of all of the Republican candidates, he has by far the best chance against Hillary or Obama in the general election.



But that's just fine with me if they feel that way. Like MrsSpringsteen said, bring the popcorn.

Ooh, Obama wins Georgia and Huckabee wins WV.
Voter irregularity in California...I don't trust 'dem Clintons.

Because two large states may not have their votes counted, Florida and Mich.

The Democrats could go into their convention without either candidate being able to get the delegate totals required.


These states will be very in the November election,
the only practical thing to do will be honor the voters of these states and award the delegates.
