1. Protesting the Olympic Torch -- good thing! China needs to be taught they can't pull shit like they're doing in Tibet with no consequences. In my perfect world, all the athletes competing would wear Tibetan flags, just to get up the noses of the sick fucks who run that country. Of course the athletes may say worrying about Tibet is a distraction from the athletic competition. I can sympathize with someone spending 4 years training only to be upstaged by a bunch of brown people who live up a mountain. But, to the athletes I have this to say: 1) The Olympics is about money, not athletics and 2) You're an amateur athlete. You jump over a stick really good. What's happening in Tibet is a lot more important than how high you jump.|
2. Mark Penn out at the Clinton Campaign. The best argument that Hillary Clinton has terrible judgement is that she pays any attention at all to that bloated sack of unprincipled shit. And if you're wondering, yes, the unprincipled shit smells worse than the regular shit. It smells like the poop of someone on a strict diet of burnt ring baloney, sauerkraut and spam. Come to think of it, Mark Penn looks like that's all he eats*
3. This article on Salon.com where the author basically runs down the Clinton talking points about the unfairness of the process. The article makes the argument that winner take all is more democratic than proportional allocation of delegates, and that caucuses are undemocratic.
Here's my point: The process is what it is, and Obama is winning by understanding that process and playing by the rules. Hillary would be winning if every state was winner take all? Yeah, and if frogs had wings they wouldn't bump their asses so much.
