Dems Fiasco In Michigan And Florida
Is Teh Funny
Ted Kennedy's Poodle will have more popular votes than Hillary Clinton. But Clinton will have more delegate votes. Hillary becomes the Dem Presidential Candidate. Dems supporting Obama will gnash their teeth and have hissy fits. Hillary supporters will say it's "faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaair."
The supporters on both camps, who have spent almost 8 years whining about Bush-Gore and Florida 2000, will have a healthy dose of their own medicine. And this is just plain rich --- chocolaty, nougaty, caramel rich!
DNC Chairman Mao Howard Dean will feign impartiality but will secretly side with the Clintons on somehow seating the delegates from Michigan and Florida to Hillary.
March 9, 2008: Howard Dean Does Not Support Michigan and Florida do-overs. WCAX:
[Dean said both states] should come up with some kind of compromise that would fit the national party's rules.
Karen Thurman, chairwoman of the Florida Democratic Party, offered a mail-in/in person proposal for voting and urged state leaders, the national party and the presidential candidates to sign on.
The estimated cost is $10 million to $12 million.
Asked if the plan will be implemented, Thurman said, "I have a feeling that this is probably closer to not, than yes."
The Clinton camp is urging a big mail-in re-vote: a "complex plan" that would entail the party's "pay[ing] a private firm to count the votes."
This news comes courtesy of New York Times, which, reports that crucial last detail in passing, but we (and, certainly, Obama) should demand to know (a) why all those ballots should be counted in that way, and (b) which "private firm" the party has in mind.
It's time to once again check in with, and find out what Baby Democrat has to say about Michigan and Florida getting do-overs:
