Yes it will end, when the media stops tellng us what we should think and letting the people speak.
Did you see how little was said about Hllary"s overwhelming win? Compare that to the pictures of the worshipful crowd of BHO's idol seeking Clones!

Anon 5:16: Lots of people HAVE spoken. Senator Obama has more delegates, more super delegates and more popular votes.

What part of that don't you understand?

"Did you see how little was said about Hllary"s overwhelming win?"

They wouldn't stop talking about it. There is nothing but talk about how this Appalachian phenomenon is going to be a significant challenge for Obama in the fall.

There is also a lot of explanation, quite properly, that for Hillary to come back, superdelegates would need to vote for her at about an 80-20 clip; something all indications show will not happen.

There is ALSO a significant amount of coverage of these women's groups who are claiming they will stay home or vote for McCain in November. What I haven't heard them get asked yet is: seriously? You would inflict that on the country, out of spite? You would do that to the Supreme Court, at the peril of your own freedoms?

Not out of spite Bram. Out of clarity of thought. Nothng is dumber than following a dream. Morning comes and we have to get the coffee, get the kids on the bus, and pray they make it home. Go great, put your dream into power, then watch as our country falls, like Rome. The Blacks will claim we cheated, the "educated" will say we're devious. No matter what, we're screwed!!

Sure they would without a doubt. Hey people voted for Bush in 04 didn't they? Look at all the red states there are. People constantly vote against there own interests.

I don't doubt that many Republicans and a few ill-informed independents believe Obama to be an empty-headed moron and/or revolutionary communist who would leave our children.

I cannot believe that of my fellow Democrats. I believe they prefer Clinton to Obama, which is fine. I also believe they are obviously bluffing when it comes to boycotting the Democrat in November, because that is the only move still available to them.

John K. says: Oops you left out MI and FL. I guess you Obama people really do not want all the votes to count. Just the votes that support your candidate. Obama isn't empty headed, he is an ACORN activist lawyer. They need no facts or rules, just an agenda.

More racism from the Laughing Chickenhawk, John K. or C.H., whatever he's calling himself today.

John K. says; You have to love those Democrats. They deny two States their right to vote. Obama says everyone who doesn't vote for him is a racist. Hillary says everyone who doesn't vote for her is a misogenist. You use phrases like "typical white woman" and making claims that Clinton's supporters are dumber than Obama's. And of all things you Obama supporters want the woman to drop out before all the votes are counted. LOL LOL LOL Bigotry has found a home in the DNC.

I didn't see anything racist regarding John K's remarks. Gee Schmuck you sure like to label others that don't share your opinion. I thought you were better than that.

P.S. please read this blog AFTER you're taken your medication.

John K. says: The Democrats are going to use the 3/5th method of counting voters in MI and FL. After all, that is how the Democrats counted black people before Lincoln and the Republicans came along.

I'm sorry. I meant to say, "John K, C.H., Anonymous or whatever he's calling himself today."

I'll try to do better next time.

John K says: To clear the record, I only post under one name. Your problem is you cannot fathom one person disagreeing with you let alone more. So you have to deceive yourself and lie. That's okay. Just like Obama, ACORN lawyers need no facts or logic to make their case. Just an agenda. Count those people in MI and FL as 3/5th just like you did you Democrats did black people.
