Thank you all for shitting on my vote. I will not forget. Ever.

Just for the record: me vote entitled me to representation.  3 generations in my family. You robbed this from me. You will pay for it. We’ll remember in November.

AP reports

In an emotional meeting leading up to the Democratic roll call of the states, Hillary Rodham Clinton released her convention delegates Wednesday to vote for certain presidential nominee Barack Obama.

Many in the crowded ballroom yelled back, “No!”

In spite what Rangel lied o us

would not instruct her followers on how to vote.

“I am not telling you what to do,” she said. “You’ve come here from so many different places having made this journey and feeling in your heart what is right for you to do.”

and then, after all our hard work, the circus:

A roll call vote was scheduled for later in the afternoon after brief nominating speeches for both Clinton and Obama. The former rivals negotiated a plan that would cut off the split roll call after a few states — perhaps by Clinton herself — in favor of acclamation for Obama.

which obviously got to some delegates too

Not all Clinton supporters were on board. Sonja Jaquez Lewis, a Clinton delegate from Colorado, said she and others may walk out if Clinton is denied a roll call.

“If we don’t have an official roll call vote, state-by-state, it is going to reopen a wound,” Lewis said.

And predictably, Oborg shows what they’re made of:

“If she’s not a strong enough leader to get her followers to do what’s right for America, then that would surprise me,” McCaskill told the AP.

Stay classy, Claire!

Margaretl is in love with Hillary’s speech! Only the context is different , before the speech and the pony she was bashing Hillary.

Says she now

Holding two opposing thoughts in your mind at the same time is essential to belonging to PUMA. What is PUMA you ask? That shows you don’t watch cable television, where PUMA — Party Unity My Ass — is starring along with sister organizations of the same ilk.

These are women who so love Hillary Clinton that they will abandon her policies to vote for John McCain, who believes in none of them.

Didn’t realize we were starring on cable. I guess, Like Howard Dean, don’t have cable… Why, Margaret, if I didn’t know better, I’d think you were…bitter!

So after being a B0bot throughout the primaries, Margaret is finding love for Hillary (or at least her DNC mandated speech). Kinda like Tweety falling in love with Gore when he conceded.

Margaret says something true for a change:

In politics, it’s the person who wins who has to get on his knees

Maybe it’s because Obama never really won that he never found any grace in the “clinching”

He and Margaret and those other media surrogates are still patronize us and telling us to get over it.

A time proven vote getter if I have seen one.

Meanwhile, try to get over our stardom…

Bw-ha-ha! Obots infuriated:

NBC, MSNBC Don’t Give an Eff: They’re Going With the PUMA Story

Of all places! MSNBC!!!!

Even NBC’s political director Chuck Todd spoke out against the station spending all its hard-earned Denver drinking money covering the PUMAs (that’s Party Unity My Ass), the particular anti-Obama group composed mainly of middle-aged white women, who receive a disproportionate amount of coverage based on their small numbers.

But PUMAs are to this week what Michael Phelps was to the last two, and MSNBC/NBC has found their niche in discussing and analyzing the rabid Clinton contingent.

Sure they insult us – but who’s bitter now?

But since PUMAs are the most, uh, colorful turnouts of the event so far, and since nothing actually happens at the national conventions except network in-fighting, you can bet there is going to be a disproportionate amount of coverage on the crazy cat ladies.

FOX just reported that in A FULL ROLL CALL ALL STATES WILL BE CALLED PUBLICLY! They say the Obama camp realized to do anything less will not help the party!

This open roll call begins at 5:00 EASTERN, 3:00 MOUNTAIN time (local to Denver).

But Denver Post reports

Delegates voting at hotels

Some delegates were confused because Sen. Clinton was not expected to release her delegates until the afternoon.

“It doesn’t make any sense to me,” said Mary Sullivan, a Clinton delegate from Albany, N.Y. “I’m gonna vote for Hillary. I’m a Clinton delegate and she hasn’t released me yet.”

Clinton is expected to address delegates this afternoon.

along with the no longer surprising:

Sullivan said she had been startled by the hostility toward Clinton on the part of some Obama supporters.

“The Obama people act like they lost,” she said. “There’s no need for it … . It’s over. It’s been over. We all knew it, but some of us haven’t given up the ghost yet.”

And they arw justifiable concerned about the accuracy of the count

Some of the Clinton supporters in the delegation raised questions about how the process would work and said they wanted an observer there to ensure that the ballots were counted accurately.

“I think it sucks,” said Blanche Darley, a Clinton delegate from El Paso.

Today’s convention schedule

7:00 PM – 8:00 PM (LOCAL)
Remarks
The Honorable Bill Clinton
Former President of the United States

Beth Robinson
Stay-at-home mom from Hampton Roads, Virginia

The Honorable John Kerry
US Senator, Massachusetts

What???? kerry follows Clinton? Last one to turn off the TV, get the lights too!

WaPo writes about the remaining divisions

Clinton said Tuesday night that it is Obama’s convention. But many of her supporters came here exclusively to honor her. One group traveled from New York and built an impromptu museum commemorating Clinton’s historic campaign. Another lighted thousands of candles in a park to symbolize her widespread support.

On Tuesday morning, hundreds of loyalists formed a 200-yard parade and marched through downtown. They shouted into loudspeakers and beat drums, creating a cacophony that echoed across the blocks. As they began marching, some of the supporters chanted, “We want a roll call.” Many of them wore their opinions on T-shirts: Country Over Party. Damn, We Wish You Were President. Still Making History. Democrats Left Behind.

At the front of the parade route, one banner summarized their message: Hillary. Who Else?

The most recent Washington PostABC News poll showed that only 42 percent of Clinton voters classify themselves as “solidly behind” Obama, and that 20 percent plan to vote for McCain. But in Denver, Clinton supporters sometimes classified themselves as belonging to one of two categories: the sad and the angry.

Rahm Emanuel finds a way to play the race card again – the ol projection game

“They got it through customs,” Emanuel said, claiming Republicans had raised the race issue under the guise of indignation, as they have done in the past.

Nice try. But the reason everyone believed McCain is because Obama did it to the Clintons first.

Bob Menenedez declines speaking at the convention

Sen. Bob Menendez declined an invitation for a coveted speaking role at the Democratic National Convention because of lingering hard feelings between him and Barack Obama’s camp, according to political and convention officials. Menendez was offered a pre-prime-time speech, which would have been the New Jersey delegation’s only shot at the Pepsi Center podium. But the deal was never closed

and makes a common sense remark that could shell shock some in these shallow times:

“You know, the thing is: speaking is not important. Winning is,” Menendez said. “Speaking is a moment in time; winning is a moment in history.”

Leaning to talk without teleprompter

According to several Democrat political consultants presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Barack Obama spent part of his Hawaiian vacation working on weaning himself from a heavy dependence on teleprompters. Even in what are staged as “town hall” events for Obama, remarks are scripted or formatted into bullet points that scroll on teleprompter screens. Obama has had several embarrassing events where the teleprompter either malfunctioned or the screens were not fully visible.

Michelle caught being herself

She was glaring at Hillary through the first half of the speech until someone got to her and told her to smile. After that she pasted on a phony rictus grin just to prove she wasn’t some kind of vindictive bitch. Too late darlin’, we saw the Michelle we all know before your handlers got to you, and it wasn’t a pretty picture.

Someone from the state party thanked for my past support and asked me to team together to support the party candidate for POTUS…

that’s when I exploded:

Support your candidate? ha!ha!ha! i’ll be happy to see him CREAMED by McCain! You fixed the election for that candidate – once the RBC stole Clinton delegates – I left your sorry party! It’s done and finished – i can’t wait to see it humiliated in November…Obama is already sinking in polls – it will be an epic defeat!

How dare they ignore Bill Clinton’s achievements at the convention? Who gave Ted Kennedy a torch to pass on? Last time I remember he had a dead woman on his record, not a torch. How dare they imply nothing happened between JFK and present day? All the people who remember 8 years of peace and prosperity will vote McCain. I am a PUMA and will not return o this party until is fixed. Not until the likes of Brazile, Dean and Pelosi are kicked out will I be a Democrat again. You’re history!

And then I hang up.

What were they thinking? That Hillary’s speech made it all all right for them to call New Yorkers? Thay we all became pod people over night???
