Texas and Ohio Voters are Idiots and Paul Still in the Race

Clinton won both Ohio and Texas. To be fair, she was expected to win both by a large margin, and her margin in Texas wasn’t much and the caucus isn’t counted far enough yet to see how delegates are distributed. None of the news organizations seem to agree on exactly how the counts are distributed, but even after the sad results of Texas and Ohio, Obama still has a sizable delegate lead.
Meanwhile, the mainstream media is ignoring that Ron Paul is still in the race and that McCain doesn’t have the race locked up as he doesn’t have the required number of pledged delegates. Ohio apparently is all unpledged. However, I truly think it is time for Ron Paul to move to the Libertarian party for his Presidential bid now that he won his Congressional seat back, and McCain is as good as the nominee. While he probably wouldn’t win the election on the Libertarian ticket, he would get them enough votes that they would be in the debates 4 years from now and there is a slim chance they may include Paul in the debates that way, though they probably wouldn’t.
If Clinton wins the nomination… well it is time to start looking more seriously at Vancouver or Nelson. Vancouver is closer, and Sara seems excited about it and Toronto. She isn’t sold on Nelson for some reason, perhaps due to it being so far, though it is in the foothills of the Southern Alps, has 4 seasons, is far sunnier than most places here save the South… Not that we can afford to move to either one for a long time anyhow. 🙁

Department of She’s Plum Lost Her Mind

I saw a comment from the Clinton camp the other day that if Obama doesn’t sweep all four states on the 4th by a large margin, than he in fact lost. Odd spin on the facts since prior to her statement, I was under the impression that Texas and Ohio were guaranteed wins for her, and the only question was how much her winning margin would be. Now Obama has closed the gap in Texas, and is close to a tie in Ohio, and how she’s saying that he has to win by a large margin to actually win. It sounds to me like even if he wins most of the states, she’ll stick in and continue to divide their party short of him doing it in such a large margin that he wins all the delegates he needs that day.

Onto Texas and Ohio

Ron Paul did respectably well Tuesday, however, due to the asinine way the Republican’s assign the winner take all delegates, his delegate count didn’t go up. I really don’t understand why anyone votes for McCain. Even Republican’s hate Bush, and McCain is basically another Bush, perhaps even worse. My shit could win the general election against McCain. I could see the election now, “I have the choice between a piece of shit and McCain. Easy! The piece of shit.” The news reports would be all about how a piece of shit beat McCain by a landslide… Lucky for us there is a chance it won’t be a piece of shit running against McCain (though that depends on who the Democrats pick of the two).
Meanwhile, voters in Wisconsin and Hawaii were smart enough to vote for Obama over Clinton. Obama is also doing better in Texas with him ahead even on some polls I have seen, but most report a statistical dead heat. For some god forsaken reason, Clinton still has a fairly strong lead in Ohio, but there is nearly two weeks until the primaries, so hopefully things will change and the gap narrows. They are still predicting it will come to the superdelegates, all in a party who for the general election believes that the popular vote is all that should matter, but for the primaries they think is worthless.
