Except for a rash of people falling asleep in the library who need to be woken up, nothing much has been going on @ the Library… We’ve had our share of technical problems over the last couple of weeks that have kept me busy but nothing amusing or exciting has happened that I would consider to be blogworthy. The weirdest thing that I’ve seen lately was a guy who took off his shoes, then curled up in the fetal position on one of our sofas to read a book. In the grand scheme of things, this is hardly worth mentioning…
Therefore, I’m going to post a little political rant about a few things that have happened over the last several days that haven’t been all that kosher. First NAFTAgate: The memo that prompted Ohio voters to support Senator Clinton in droves has been proven to be a steaming pile of crap that the conservative Canadian government leaked to try to sway our election. This isn’t cool. Canada, please stay out of our politics, we have enough problems all on our own thank you very much… I’m sure that many Ohio voters are thrilled today that they cast their votes based on a fabrication. Our media should be doing a better job of letting people know that this whole flap was a farce, sadly they seem to be asleep at the wheel… WTF people?
Next up on our venting list is Texas. The media keeps telling us that Clinton won Texas. This is not accurate, Clinton won the Texas primary but that’s only 2/3 of the battle. The final piece of the puzzle, the caucus, hasn’t been fully tabulated as of yet, but when all is said and done it looks like Senator Obama will win Texas by a three delegate margin. When the final numbers are in, I certainly hope that this will be front page news.
Now, I’d like to write something about negative campaigning. Senator Clinton has decided to embark on a negative campaign that can only bolster the Republican smear machine. One of the rules of politics is that you don’t give the opposition party any ammunition that will ultimately fuel the destruction of your nominee. Not to mention the fact that she has outright endorsed John McCain in the event that she doesn’t get the nomination! Democratic insiders really love this kind of thing, and I’m sure it’s winning her throngs of superdelegates, especially now that
the Devil Karl Rove has signed on to be one of McCain’s advisers.
On a positive note, Obama won today’s Wyoming caucus with 61.4% of the vote! On Tuesday, Obama is expected to route Clinton in Mississippi further adding to his already insurmountable delegate lead… After that it’s on to Pennsylvania, and that is anyone’s guess. One thing, however, is for certain. Hillary Clinton has a really bad math problem, and the longer this goes on the worse it gets. Lastly, if Florida and Michigan decide to hold re-dos it doesn’t get any better for her. Michigan will go to Obama (especially if they caucus), and although Hillary will most likely win Florida, Obama will earn enough delegates to quell her aspirations.
Senator Clinton is not going gently, but go she will.. The only question is, how much damage will she do to the Democratic Party before she leaves?
