Game Over

on Wednesday, May 7, 2008

Hillary's done. Yet Obama supporters nationwide are continuing to rip their hair out over the fact that Hillary refuses to drop out, regardless of the fact that her tiny victory in Indiana has clearly spelled defeat for her campaign. But instead of turning to their own party, Obamatrons are now venting their frustration for their party's retarded election rules on, gasp, the evil republicans.

Take Obamatron-in-Chief, Chris "thrill up my leg" Matthews as an example of one who perfectly illustrates this point. Last night he criticised Republicans for "wasting their votes" by taking part in Rush Limbaugh's "Operation Chaos" - a plan created by Rush in which he challenged Republican voters to cross over and vote for the ol' lady in an effort to keep the Democratic campaign in disorder (a plan that many would say has succeeded quite successfully).

Matthews has this to say to the Republicans who, can you believe it, actually exercised their constitutional right to vote: "What a ridiculous way to use the vote for which people fought and died" adding sarcastically "I hope you’re proud of yourselves"

Oh really, Chris?... What about all those Independents you praised for crossing over and voting McCain in an early effort to eliminate your arch nemesis Mitt Romney. Why weren't you whining then? In fact, for fun, let's take a trip down memory lane and recall a handful of things some people on your side of the fence had to say a few months ago during the Republican campaign:

From Markos Moulitsas himself:

Michigan Democrats and independents who want to see the Republican battle royale continue should just take a few minutes on Tuesday, January 15th to cast a ballot for Mitt Romney in the Republican primary.
If we can help push Mitt over the line, not only do we help keep their field fragmented, but we also pollute Romney's victory. How "legitimate" will the Mittster's victory look if liberals provide the margin of victory? Think of the hilarity that will ensue.
How is that any different than "Operation Chaos" Chris? Why didn't you criticise Kos when he said that to his millions of nutroots followers, you phony hypocrite? Oh right, because you're a typical liberal who loves to play dirty - except for when someone on the opposing team uses the same dirty tricks on you. You can dish it out, but you can't take it.

Look, the fact of the matter is, your whole "superdelegate" system is bunk to begin with. It was originally created so that Democratic politicians could control the vote in order to secure the outcome they wanted. But now it seems your party's moronic voter-suppression system is coming back to bite you in the butt. And, as usual, in your demented mind, it's the Republicans fault.

Don't be mad at us at the fact that Hillary is refusing to drop out. What do you expect? After all, she is a Clinton. She's waited her whole life for this, and she's surely not going to concede the nom to some racist rookie until the last votes have been counted. It ain't our fault that your Messiah hasn't taken the nomination yet, Chris. Go cry to somebody who cares.

Have you seen this letter:

From Richmond Times-Dispatch, Monday, July 7, 2008 ~

Dear Editor, Times-Dispatch:

Each year I get to celebrate Independence Day twice.
On June 30 I celebrate my independence day, and on
July 4 I celebrate America's. This year is special, because
it marks the 40th anniversary of my independence.

On June 30, 1968, I escaped Communist Cuba, and a few
months later, I was in the United States to stay. That
I happened to arrive in Richmond on Thanksgiving Day is
just part of the story, but I digress.

I've thought a lot about the anniversary this
year. The election-year rhetoric has made me think a lot
about Cuba and what transpired there. In the late
1950s, most Cubans thought Cuba needed a change, so when a young leader came along, every Cuban
was at least receptive.

When the young leader spoke eloquently and
passionately and denounced the old system, the press fell
in love with him. They never questioned who his friends
were or what he really believed in. When he said he would
help the farmers and the poor and bring free medical care
and education to all, everyone followed. When he said he
would bring justice and equality to all, everyone said,
'Praise the Lord.' And when the young leader
said, 'I will be for change and I'll bring you
change,' everyone yelled, 'Viva Fidel!'

But nobody asked about the change, so by the time the
executioner's guns went silent, the people's guns
had been taken away. By the time everyone was equal,
they were equally poor, hungry, and oppressed. By the
time everyone received their free education, it was worth
nothing. By the time the press noticed, it was too late,
because they were now working for him. By the time the
change was finally implemented, Cuba had been knocked
down a couple of notches to Third-World status. By the
time the change was over, more than a million people had
taken to boats, rafts, and inner tubes. You can call
those who made it ashore anywhere else in the world the
most fortunate Cubans. And now I'm back to the
beginning of my story.

Luckily, we in America would never fall for a young
leader who promised change without asking, what change?
How will you carry it out? What will it cost America ?

Would we?
