Last night’s show was a grand success! Will Bower was on – being absolutely great! he had started this by documenting the Fla, Mi rip-offs – so his starting point is the same as mine.

he went on by talking about the PUMA history – the Confluence post, the viral explosion. he had quit his job and does this full time.

He regards Rendell’s HOUND as a gift – literally. Not just in giving us exposure – but pretty much a wink and a nod to our message by agreeing – sorta- that this was a selection.

Riverdaughter called in, a woman who used to work for Moveon and eventually even I got through.

I asked the question about “who holds the media’s leash” I liked Will’s answer: there are leashes held by leashes held by leashes….He also thinks Pelosi wanted the weaker candidate so her (Congress) power be greater.

I got to mention the “never for the good guys” thought – and how the mere fact that the media supports this guy is a cause for alarm.

Will also told us that by his conservative estimates, we are 2 million PUMAS on line – just the ones enrolled in the “Just Say No Deal” coalition. Wow!

On the chat board – about 130 people were typing away – we don’t know how many were tuned in. But it was a high energy, enthusiastic crowd – no bitterness….

One more thing: Capital Hill’s song was launched on the show

the lyrics:
Better listen to what I have to say Howie

Don’t wanna be your teacher baby,
Don’t wanna be your coffee makin slave
Said we don’t wanna be preached to baby
Here to tell you NO, we won’t behave
Ain’t gonna be the victim baby,
Of the stupid choices you’ve made, no

Don’t wanna be taken for granted sweety,
Honey, we won’t toe the line
Said we won’t be taken for granted sweety,
Honey we won’t toe the line,
Don’t pat me on the head & say it’s fine,
Remember my votes mine, yeah,

Let me turn it up case you didn’t hear me the first time

Don’t wanna be taken for granted sweety,
Honey, we won’t toe the line
Said we won’t be taken for granted sweety,
Honey we won’t toe the line,
Don’t pat me on the head & say it’s fine,
Remember my votes mine, yeah,

I suppose this is where the comment I saved from The Confluence fits in nicely:

Is the election season actually picking up steam?

I have never seen anything this anachronistic:

– Obama was supposed to have won the nomination and according to some polls, was supposed to have won in a landslide already, vanquishing all “dead-enders”.

Hillary and her supporters (bunch of old, unsexy and bitter women) were supposed to be already on their knees to join the Obama train, fight tooth and nail for the (unqualified) male to prove that they have truly learned what is their role in the society

I was supposed to check in here from time to time, just to hang out with my fellow Conflucians and remain bitter until the end. Remember, I was among the 9% when Bush had a 91% approval

What suddenly happened?

On Friday, the PUMA coalition had its best media day evaah, just stepping all over the “Unity Parade”.

On Saturday, The Confluence had its best fundraising evaah (for Hillary), that same day well liked and well respected Gov Rendell makes a complete fool out of himself by creating HOUND

On Sunday, the PUMA coalition has major conference call. That same day, my new favorite website is created: Stop Puma. I haven’t seen anything this funny since George Bush last tried to say something that was not written for him.

Why do I feel like the fun is actually just beginning?
