Pumas 4 Palin

Convention Match can’t be decided on spring training stats of the primary season.

Posted on: July 24, 2008

I was reminded of the video below while going over reader comments to the NYT article at The Caucus on the latest Denver Group ad. Some of the readers make it seem as though Americans have moved on. The casual voter, like the moving finger,  voted, and having voted, moved on. To November, skipping past August.

Now, it’s hard to tell from casual scrolling of the comment file to guess how widespread the sentiment is. Just equally hard to judge how wide and deep the contrariwise sentiment, the PUMA attitude. Sure there are hundreds of web sites, but how many are really growling?

So, let’s watch it one more time.

The topic in May was of course the fate of the 2.5 million votes cast in MI and FL., but the ideas remain the same: count the vote, let people’s voice prevail. Let the process play out.

Speaking of the playing out, consider these stats, worn as a banner at many websites dedicated to HIllary.

Numbers to know

Numbers to know

The other nuggets of the Caucus article:

Calls to the Democratic National Committee were referred to the Obama campaign, and Bill Burton, a spokesman said: “We’re working out the details of the convention, and we’ll let people know when the specifics are worked out.

What is clear is that some of Mrs. Clinton’s supporters are not ready to give up the fight.


And here is why. People keep talking in sports analogy, so here goes.


In the elections, the primary season was like spring training, the convention ballot is like real games and matches – rules, credentials, platforms, keynotes, tributes etc. Following the same thought, the general election is the championship game. Winner take glory. Is that clear?


Now, it seems the Obama campaign, along with DNC which aided and abetted them along, wants us to determine the future based on spring training results. Is there any sports fan who would go for such nonsense?

Why not go to the convention, let each candidate go with their supporters, delegates and take part in a roll call. Afterall a roll call is just a vote, what is more American than voting. Or, to turn it around, who are the people in the world you think of when you think of NOT voting? Hmm let me see, a couple of big wars come to mind, when US sent in our fine men and women to kick some ass and restore something called democracy in some far off places, ring a bell?

But no, Howard Dean and Barack Obama want no voting at the convention, as has been done for the last one hundred years. Even Ronald Reagan, who had absolutely on one running against him, had a roll call taken in 1984, you know why? Tradition. That’s how we do it in America. We vote!

Why then do the Democrats of 2008 want no vote?

What are they telling us, worse, what are they NOT telling us?

It’s got to be more than cowardice.

The answer is simple: SEXISM

Pure and simple sexism. The most unfortunate part is how many women are buying it, accepting it, glad to wait their turn. Oh, let the man have it this time! There will be other women.

This is what I am afraid of. For every Democratic woman who is acqiescent today, there is a man somewhere who feels contrariwise about Obama, and is saying Not HIM!

By being quiet, these feeble minded women of today’s Democratic party, they are enabling countless and uncountable number of men and women who will out of sheer spite, prejudice, dislike or well considered reason, will not vote for the ‘official’ candidate. But we will never know how many or who.

It is only by standing up for Hillary that the party can avoid this ignominy.

Let the candidates stand up, be nominated, and voted on.

May the best woman win!

    Home from commercial fishing grounds in Bristol Bay, and here's Piper helping slay salmon to market! A good season for wild reds on the Nushagak, Piper hopes to make enough to cover, maybe, a cell phone bill. Do you agree, as I’ve said before, we need more girls holding up fish in pics instead of holding up iPhones in selfies?!  It’s always wonderful re […]

  • It Takes a Village... to Slay a Salmon July 3, 2013
    The beauty of catching some of our Alaskan species with fins is the amount of meat harvested with each fish. Rod and reeling red salmon, or, my favorite, a big (or even not so big) halibut ensures you've got a few dinners taken care of even when feeding a bunch of people.We had a blast hauling in halibut in Homer a few days ago, despite the cold rain an […]

    Today marks the beginning of the week-long ceremonies commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. There will be a full re-enactment of the battle, discussions with panels of historians, and of course a re-reading of the Gettysburg Address. But as Lincoln affirmed when he dedicated that hallowed ground, nothing we say or do can “add or de […]

    If you missed President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, you didn’t miss much – especially if you watched any of his past four State of the Union addresses. We heard the same recycled rhetoric, and we heard his Orwellian declaration that the cornucopia of new federal programs he proposed, as well as his intention to eradicate world poverty, wou […]
