Campaign 2008 Update

Campaign 2008Just a quick update on Campaign 2008 to keep you up to speed with what’s going down.

Governor of Texas Rick Perry asked Mike Huckabee to drop out. Huck refused. Perry had originally endorsed Giuliani (who won only a single delegate) and has since hopped onboard the Straight Talk Express, so his judgement is questionable to say the least.

Fred Thompson also chose to jump on the bandwagon, endorsing his friend John McCain. Way to sell out, Fred! We knew you had it in you after you woke up from your nap.

Mike Huckabee easily won the state of Kansas today, adding to his own delegate count. The conservative alternative to the “maverick” Senator from Arizona pledged to stay in the race until one of the remaining candidates gets the required 1,191 delegates. Good for you, Huck.

Meanwhile, the kooky Dr. Ron Paul has all but dropped out of the race. His long shot campaign never really had a chance, but his crazy rants have kept the debates interesting in a train wreck sort of way. Paul has ruled out a third party run, preferring to concentrate on keeping his Congressional seat to suffering an embarrassing third party defeat.

Barry Obama, it would seem, appears to be the eventual Democrat party nominee. He will probably mop up the floor with McCain in a debate. Huckabee would at least hold his own. So we should all be glad that he’s going to keep battling for the remaining states and for conservatism.

Hillary Clinton is steaming mad over David Shuster’s comment about Chelsea Clinton being “sort of pimped out” by her campaign. She “found the remarks incredibly offensive.” Not enough drama, Hilldog. Maybe you need to shed some crocodile tears again so people will pay attention. Naturally, NBC wimped out and suspended Shuster for making the un-PC comment. Cowards.

That’s where things stand as of now. Have a great weekend, B4Bers! And have a wonderful day at church tomorrow.

Update: Huckabee wins Louisiana and is within a couple of points of McCain in Washington state. How embarrassing for the presumptive front-runner Johnny Mac. Barry Obama sweeps Super Saturday.

Update 2: With the vote count stuck at 87% and JMac ahead of Huck by just over 200 votes (after trailing most of the night), the Washington state GOP has called it for McCain without counting the rest of the votes.  Huckabee’s campaign is calling for an investigation.  Something smells rotten in the state of Washington.  Thanks to Sam Brown at B4H for bringing this to my attention.

  2. Or did you mean Church from Red Vs Blue? He’s pretty cool, since he had to go back in time and stuff. Confusing, but awesome. I like how Rooster Teeth used the Marathon game engine to illustrate the past.

  3. Oh wait, you mean the protest of the Church of Scientology. I will have fun causing epic lulz, if that’s what you mean. Something tells me that we are going to have to call for some serious /b/ackup. I would say /b/lackup, but that’s only for Habbo raids. Of course, Habbo raids are for newfags that need to gb2ebaumsworld.

  4. According to the demographics, I should be voting for Hillary Clinton: I’m a white, 60-year-old, highly educated woman from the Northeast. But I’m voting for Obama. I’ve waited all my life for a viable woman candidate for the presidency, but this is not the right woman. I want a woman of the highest ability and virtue, who would serve as a glorious role model to all young women. Hillary Clinton is not that woman.
    She rode into power with her husband, and together they’ve acquired a long and seriously flawed history of self-serving and secretive financial and political dealings. The most cursory research will prove that true. She started out her political life supporting the racist Barry Goldwater. She is as comfortable with deception and trickery as George Bush. When I hear woman saying, “Oh, but that’s how you get things done in Washington,” I literally cringe.
    I am passionately supporting Barack Obama. He can beat the Republicans; she cannot. Obama has attracted Independents and even Republicans to his camp, and in a general election they would vote for him, but not for Clinton. Clinton voted for the war, and has never apologized for it. Obama has spoken out against it from the beginning. Obama brings us hope–and not just that. Take a serious look at his ideas and experience.
    Please, I beg of you, Sisters young and old: wait for the right woman. Then we can be proud.

  5. CNN:

    But Huckabee faces a daunting challenge. McCain has a significant lead in the delegate count after Super Tuesday. Huckabee has 217 delegates to McCain’s 714, according to CNN calculations.

    Even if Huckabee wins every remaining state with 50 percent of the vote to McCain’s 40 percent, McCain would still be the nominee.

    Buuuuuuuuurn.

  6. I don’t know about Chelsea being pimped out but the way President Clinton has been doing the dirty work, its almost shocking to see a former president act in such an unprofessional manner. What I mean is that he is going all out in cheesy attacks and such, something no other former president has done. Its funny but you didn’t see Bush I soiling himself in the political trenches for his son. Its almost like Hillary has some sort of blackmail over her husband…like he owes her and has to debase himself…oh wait, never mind. I think the biggest issue facing the country is that this is America and most Americans are not comfortable to 24 years of two families controlling the Executive Branch. Last time I checked, this wasn’t India.

    I think most people (I have no figures or stats to back this up, btw, just an impression) would vote for Obama over Clinton any day. Including the people a b4b, though if that is because of what the two people are likely to do or weather they are more sexist than racist, I don’t know.

    Post 6.

    “24 years of two families controlling the Executive Branch.”

    Presidency of America, a hereditary title. Yeah, I can see how that possibility (albeit extremely remote) would make people ‘uncomfortable’. It would send shivers down my spine if I bothered/dared to think of the consequences.

  8. Austin, actually most Republicans would prefer Hitlery to be the Democrat party nominee as opposed to Osama. He’s so far left, he’s off the scale!

    Also polling shows that McCain would likely beat Clinton, but lose to Obama.

    And Hillary would probably take national security more seriously than Barry and would govern moderate-left as opposed to hard-left.

    You have typos in your comment, I believe that you meant to type ‘Obama,’ instead of “Osama” and ‘Hillary’ instead of “Hitlery,” while obviously an accident, some of the more stupid bloggers may view it as an attack, (referring to Osama Bin-Laden and Adolf Hitler respectively) but it is soooo inane that it couldn’t possibly be one, and you are not Sisyphus, so you would know to not do that.

    And I just noticed one in mine [Post 7.] meant to type ‘whether’ sorry.

    Hmmmm. I’m going to have to read up on who is preferred (in a lesser-of-two-evils kind of way, of course) by Republicans now as your statement has made me interested. Thanks😀 !

    “Also polling shows that McCain would likely beat Clinton, but lose to Obama.” Does that mean that in general, Obama will likely win the Democrat thingy? Which according to you would be good, as he is disliked more by Republicans than Clinton is?

    “National security” I can see why you would give her points for that.

    p.s. “Barry” sounds rude, in the purposeful mis-spelling way, or in the overly familiar way… (Your comments show that you are probably not very good friends, lol)

  11. We need to investigate Washington State Party Chairman Luke Esser. We need to make him talk about why he STOLE the caucus from Huckie.

    God’s substitute candidate Hucklebee was WINNING WINNING WINNING and then all of a sudden the tax-raiseing, immigrant loving, chink-obeying torture-hating, odd-man McCain was declared the winner.

    Who is this Luke? Where does he live and WHAT is his greatest fear. Rats in a cage seem too good for him . . .

    You’re not even in touch with your own flock. Repubs want Clinton to win the nomination because she’s so deathly polarizing(as opposed to Obama, who stresses uniting the country).

    God’s substitute candidate Hucklebee was WINNING WINNING WINNING

    LOL WHERE. Also, you lose for misspelling “Huckabee”. Don’t blame your kids on this one.

  19. You didn’t respond to my LOL WINNING WHERE. I ams a sads pandas, nows.

    Right, I hate America, that’s why I vote, take interest in civil rights, and have a knack for history. It’s also why I have a presidential award for recognition from Bill Clinton.

    I hate Jesus, that’s why I promote him as both a Gnosis and a herald of peace and love. That’s why I try to keep morons like you from tainting him with the blood of innocents.

    Maybe we should investigate why you love beating your children in public and destroying their beloved toys, as you’ve openly admitted.

  20. The Clinton campaign didn’t have a healthcare plan befor it felled and they don’t have one now. Well to be honest, if everyone is a goverment employee, then the Clinton healthcare plan will work for everyone. Unfortunately some are self employed, independent contractors or work for private employors or small business. Under the Clinton healthcare plan these people would be penalized if they don’t pay for their healthcare. This means that most of your family members and friends will have their paychecks garnished. We all know that it doesn’t stop there if it is a goverment enforcement. There will be fines and then misdemeanors which is a criminal offense defined as less serious than a felony. Why did Ms. Clinton decide on this approach? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out. Big business, big Corporation call it what you will, they want their money back and in order for Ms. Clinton to get their support in her race to presidency she is giving victory to one side (the healthcare providers) by promising to them that she will have the poeople wages garnished if they continue to give healthcare. Thus allowing her to shout the words “UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE” This is a shady tactic and makes fools out of every american that falls for this trick. The Obama healthcare plan is for the people. Poor people, middle class and rich people can rest assured that there is no tricks or penalties in the Obama healthcare plan. VOTE OBAMA!!

  22. Speaking of Chelsea Clinton:

    There is bad news about her father.

    It is opined that Bill Clinton committed racist hate crimes, and I am not free to say anything further about it.
