G. Q. Martinez at Corrente:
The media cowed us and manipulated us into Iraq. They cowed us and manipulated us into accepting George W. Bush’s 2000 election “win”. They cowed us and manipulated us into rejecting health care reform. And so on. We are tired of the media telling us what to think and determining the course of our country—because it has really left the place FUBAR.
Here’s the problem with [the “]Obama is the nominee absurdity[:”] Since March 4th, Hillary’s gotten over 500,000 more votes than Obama. She will likely increase that number in the last three contests and will almost certainly be the candidate who will have received the most votes in this primary. Shouldn’t the de facto nominee be increasing his vote lead rather than getting his ass kicked at the polls? (Spare me the delegate “the math” meme.) That’s the argument we are taking to the Super Delegates, along with the fact that WA, TX, and NE all showed disturbing discrepancies between caucus results and primary results which unambiguously call into question the validity of Obama’s caucus wins. That’s been our plan for months and our position has only improved by these criteria. We’re not going to quit.
