looks like she carried the most votes

(votes are like dollar bills, they each have the same exact value)

in a convoluted, f-ed up, bogus, caucus sham


a caucus where people gather in a room and divided into groups and then any group that has less than 25% gets to join larger group that is soliciting them with god only knows what?
tacos, ice cream, fresh baked cookies, Obama girls in tight sweaters

this is a legitimate way to select a Presidential Candidate?

At least its not as bad as:

"I hate Osama, Obama and Chelsea's mama"

Not only is it childish, its not even funny! Its the stupidest thing i've ever read in my life. Whoever came up with that should lose their right to vote.

Lick Bush
Beat Dick
in 2000

The Nevada entrance poll says 59% of the Dem voters were female, and 68% were over age 45.

I saw a bit of one caucus (precinct?) on CNN. It looked ridiculous and if we saw something akin to it in the developing world, we'd probably send in an oversight commission.

We need an oversight commission to look at the voting machine fraud that takes place. In the NH recount, memory cards were missing and ballot boxes were unsealed and some had slits in them. I'd much rather have a transparent process.

After 2000,
one would have thought that it would have gone this direction

but what did they learn?

a paper trail, even with hanging chads, almost prevented them from their claim? of victory

the process was corrected so any theft would not leave any physical evidence

Ron Paul is taking out McCain!!!!






































And Mitt is winning. Fuck

If this ends up being a Romney / Clinton general election, America is fucked. Fucked.

That will indeed soften the post-inaguration blow, slightly, while I wait in line to get my retinas scanned for the new national ID/DNA database.

It would make some sense if you thought he could gain momentum down the road and have a shot, but you have to know that right now at this moment, he's not winning any states.

Props to Ron Paul for getting second, but it's not like it was a race or anything. Romney got more votes than everyone else combined.

But a second's a second, I suppose

I think you're right about that...there's an undercurrent there that seems to fall below the radar--until the results come in. I was also surprised how she was able to overcome the scorn of the unions and earn so much of the Latino vote.

Poor John Edwards. He's most likely toast. At times, he's come across as the most sincere and direct of the bunch.

America will NEVER elect a Morman to the Presidency. Period.

Just like the idea of electing a Catholic president was unfathomable too, right?

So you think they won't elect a Mormon, but a woman or a black seems completely possible?

As I was reading that, I thought you said Moron. America has definitely been down that road.

I have to admit, this election is suprising me so far, in a very good way.

I really thought sexism and racist were strong enough in the US to make this an obstacle for the Dems. I also thought that the predominately protestant Christian right wouldn't even allow a Mormon in "their" party, for many will still admit they think it's a cult.

Now this can mean a lot of things. This can mean the far Christian right aren't even showing up to vote, which would be a great thing. Or they are waiting till the general election. Who knows, I really think this election will come down to the general election, polls won't mean shit in this election. It will depend if hateful folks will stay home or get off the couch...
