On Clobama

At the end of the day, both Hillary and B. Hussein Obama are bad news - the both of them. Hillary we know by her actions, B. Hussein Obama by his associates. On the other hand, McCain isn't exactly any gold-plated prize his own self.

However, after much painful thought I have come to two conclusions.

1) We're going to be a tiny bit better off if McCain wins in November. Not much, but a tiny bit.

2) Towards that end, it is in our best interests as a nation that Clobama vs Clobama be a knockdown, dragout, crotch-kneeing, eyeball-gouging, wedgie-giving dust up right up till the last day of the Democratic Convention, ideally with Clobama delegates brawling drunkenly with each other in the streets and being arrested for goat-molesting.

It seems unlikely we'll see (2) in all it's glory, but we can hope, and whenever we see any hint of a democrat wanting to vote their "true beliefs" we can encourage them, and urge them to "make a difference" and not let "back room politics corrupt the process" and give a close nomination to the *candidate they don't like* just because "big business bought them out". Superdelegates are bad, m'kay?

Let us encourage every democrat we meet - it'll be almost as much fun as encouraging them to vote for Nader in 2000.

I personally, am hoping for a dual nomination that takes the eye-punching-bat-weilding down to the wire. Politics and politicians all pretty much suck and we all lose in the end, but at least there will be some entertainment in the interim.
