From the daily archives: Sunday, August 24, 2008

Reported within the hour at CNN:

DENVER, Colorado (CNN) — Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton will release her delegates to Sen. Barack Obama, a Clinton spokesman said Sunday, the eve of the Democratic National Convention.

Big reception on Wednesday where she’ll rally her troops. This time I hope it sticks. As I’ve been saying for some time now, she needs to forcefully say that any of her supporters who don’t support Obama, don’t vote, or vote McCain will be disrespecting her run. Period.

If I Were In Denver, Part 1

On August 24, 2008 By

If I were in Denver, this is a story I’d be digging on. In bars. In hotels. In elevators. Dig. Exposing the nonsense that is the Clinton ego and finding ways to zap some of this division narrative would be a good bet. Of course, if it’s there, it’s there. Find it.

Obama Bomaye!

Some tips for following all the action in Denver:

The Big Tent – This is a project of (sister site to ProgressOhio). Tons of information coming out of this. Had I been able to make it out to Denver this is where I woulda been hanging.

ODB: Jeff is in Denver. He’ll be blasting away. I follow him on Twitter, which is pretty much real-time for what he is doing and writing.

BSB: BSB Boyz Nick and David should have some stuff to add to Jeff’s. Been hearing they are […]

This is what modern day conservatism and the Republican Party thugs represent. Vandalism:

Maybe when he’s back from his Kenny Loggins concert old gordo can ‘splain this. He’s big on vandalism.

Naugle Running Ads?

On August 24, 2008 By

More signs that young Matthew is about to see the light. First it was mouthing the “Yes We Can” chant at an Obama rally, now he’s running ads? Thanks for pushing the progressive message Matthew! Really appreciate it, buddy! I got my sticker coming, how about you? LOL.

I also want to congratulate Matt on his strong 18 ranking on BNN. Seems since he has allowed a known lunatic pseudo-progressive “activist” to comment on his site he’s been tanking. PB was #1 last week and top ten this week – and we don’t […]

Tom DeFrank:

Pay absolutely no attention to yet another round of dope stories today that John McCain is mulling Colin Powell as a running mate. They’re absolutely bogus – leaks from the McCain camp to get the political and media chatteratti to change the subject for a few hours.

Powell is NOT going to be on the McCain ticket, and McCain knows it himself. So do his advisers.

When the Arizona senator called on the retired general and national icon to solicit his endorsement a few weeks back, the Veepship came up, and Powell said that was a total […]

Colin Powell: WTF? (Updated)

On August 24, 2008 By

First Robert Novak says:

Powell probably will enter Obama’s camp at a time of his own choosing.

Now Mike Allen says:

Retired Gen. Colin Powell is among the potential running mates who have been considered by John McCain, campaign advisers told Politico.

I’d note the chatter that Colin Powell would not only endorse Obama, but possibly speak at the convention was pretty widespread. It doesn’t appear he’ll be at the convention, but Allen writing that he’s even being considered a McCain VP pick is pretty shocking given all I’ve read on the subject. Given that the biggest […]

Kinda hard to pass this one up. Our friend Gordo (gordon gekko), another in a long line of anonymous wingnut bloggers, posts about his recent great experience watching Kenny Loggins relive the 80s. I’m glad he had fun giving money to someone who supports Democrats:

Good show Gordo!

He does have two tickets to Eddie Money paradise. He might be on to something there I think.

I stopped reading Kos a long time ago specifically because of shit like this

If Obama’s core message is ‘change’ and ‘judgment’ based on his prescience on the Iraq War vote, well then, Biden is the exact opposite of those things.

Are you still pissed because Biden didn’t show up at YearlyKos last year, Markos? Or is it something more personal than that?

We finally have a presidential candidate that seems to inspire everyone… except you, of course.

The perfect candidate doesn’t exist. Never did and never will.

We have Obama and Biden this time around and, […]
