There are some high-quality dramatics going on in the Hammer right now.

Really, this is some amusing drama... )

Dear Sarah Palin: Fuck you.

(Yeah, yeah, you did basically say the comment was bait, but I'm going to take it. You may think a blowback will play into your persecution complex, but I don't think this is going to play well any time that's not a rally.)

Oh, and the actual quote is: "There's a place in Hell reserved for women who don't help other women." Maybe I'll think about voting for you if you start doing that.

I haven't talked much about politics this time around in here, although I've been keeping a fairly close eye on the presidential race so far. I figure I'll probably end up talking about it more later on.

I have a question for the Hillary supporters on my flist though (or y'know, anyone else who has thoughts). I'm going to warn you, it sounds really flamebait-y, but this is a real genuine question, and I'd really appreciate your thoughts. (I would ask in a Hillary community or something but again, it sounds really flamebait-y and I can't think how to phrase it any other way.)

Why is Hillary still running?

Now, note, this isn't "why is she running (in general)?" or "why would she be a good President?" or "why are you supporting her?" or "I don't like Hillary, change my mind?"
It's "at this point in time, with the race the way it is, why is she still running?"

There's a little "set your own delegates for the remaining races" thing at CNN that I've been playing with a lot lately. Like, I've seen the articles about how difficult the math is for Clinton to win. But it's one thing to read the articles, and it's another to be able to give Clinton a 60-40 win in all the remaining races and have Obama still be over the top with 45% of the remaining superdelegates. And 60-40 is like crazy levels of optimistic.

And I can't see how continuing helps Clinton at all.

I just don't get it. I'd really appreciate any thoughts.

Short!

Hahahaha. Oh, good lord. The entitlement.

But during Thursday's debate, Obama made a major gaffe in incorrectly stating that he had received endorsements from every major newspaper in Texas. We may not be considered a "major" paper to many, but we represent a crucial constituency of close to 50,000 young and enthusiastic voters, and we've been scrutinizing every move of the candidates leading up to today's endorsement. Sure, Obama took many under his spell when he graced our city with his presence early in his campaign, but we think he prematurely considered his work in Austin done.

We've taken into account our communication with each campaign as an indication of how each candidate's government would function. Upon finding out the debate would not be open to students, Obama's campaign told us there was nothing they could do to get more students into the debate, whereas the Clinton camp was sympathetic in offering assistance. This makes us wonder how far Obama would go for us as president.

Ah, UT (or at least the Daily Texan). Why must you suck so much? ;)

Ugh.

You know, I sometimes think that maybe I need to reevaluate my opinions on the Clintons. I mean, my politics have changed since they were in the White House, maybe it's just growing up in Texas that biased me against them. But every single time I think that, I turn around and see something like this:
In the words of that Clinton adviser: "If you have a social need, you're with Hillary. If you want Obama to be your imaginary hip black friend and you're young and you have no social needs, then he's cool."

Yeah, Hillary, your campaign's really working to bring about change in the political process there. Good grief.
