  1. Ugggh, Hillary is speaking on TV right now. All the smarmy half-baked warmed-over Baby Boomer garbage that you would expect. I can’t stand the idea that she would be leading this nation for four years.

    JVW (b03dfa)

  2. Orange County, CA has already posted absentee ballot results –

    JOHN MCCAIN (REP) 56586 42.1%
    MITT ROMNEY (REP) 38611 28.7%
    MIKE HUCKABEE (REP) 13979 10.4%
    RUDY GIULIANI (REP) 13742 10.2%

    Justin Levine (20f2b5)

  3. The numbers do tend to look more promising the further west we go, at least until the votes cross the Rockies.

  4. That Barack Obama sure is something. He’s speaking now, and one of his big rhetorical device is “maybe something can be done about. . . ” which he applies to concerns like healthcare and education and the rest of the Democrat talking points. Not that he will actually bother to give you some idea as to exactly what can be done; no, it’s just vague generalities and verbal pablum from the man from the Land of Lincoln.

    He just claimed that Republicans are already aligned with him. Exactly what polls are showing Obama drawing votes from Republicans, or is he just making it up because he wants to believe it?

    I still would like to see him win the Democrat nomination, though. At some point he will have to flesh out some of his grand ideas with concrete proposals, and it will be fun watching him make it all add up.

    JVW (b03dfa)

  5. He just claimed that Republicans are already aligned with him.

    He is a Dem. They can just make shit up.

    JVW – If he wins the nomination, we will see 8 years of him blundering through the WH. No thanks.

    JD (a11194)

  6. Yep, he just had an impressive moment of honesty when he said “We will make mistakes along the way” (imagine Hillary owning up to that reality), but imagine if his mistake is in something as important as health care policy, which accounts for something like 18% of our economy and is so vital to 300 million Americans. Would we be expected to say, “Oh well, he had good intentions”?

    Still, he gives a damn good speech. Sure it is like a Hostess Twinkie — delicious but ultimately lacking any nutritional content — but it was infinitely better than what Hillary came up with (as I noted in the first comment above).

    JVW (b03dfa)

  7. He just claimed that Republicans are already aligned with him. Exactly what polls are showing Obama drawing votes from Republicans, or is he just making it up because he wants to believe it?

    I dunno. Vs McCain?

    I’d back that ticket, if only because McCain demands we follow him, and has actually started the nomination is his.

    McCain can suck my pair…

    Scott Jacobs (a1de9d)

  8. Obama is absolutely fantastic as an orator. Minus the actual content and meaning found in, oh, Cicero Lincoln Douglas carlito on a good day.

    Fox news just noted that Hillary’s California win was helped by her large win in the Asian population. She’s big in the busboy community, insomuch as they donate $2400 to her campaign, I guess.

    carlitos (5d7926)

  9. Barry O is a great speechifier. But dammit, at some point, shouldn’t he be required to actually say something?

    JD (a11194)

  10. What is it about Asian-Americans and the Clintons? I believe that George H.W. Bush actually beat Clinton among Asian-Americans in 1992, pretty much the only demographic that he carried. The Clintons obviously took note and worked very hard to make inroads into that community, and ended up beating Dole among Asian-Americans in 1996. Now they help lead Hillary to victory over Obama in California (with the help of Latinos, it would appear). What’s that all about?

    JVW (b03dfa)

  11. Romney is currently at 89% of the vote in Utah. Maybe he should relocate to Utah and run for Governor or Senator.

    DRJ (517d26)

  12. JVW – My better half is Vietnamese, and I do not know one single person in their entire extended family that would even consider voting for Obama or Clinton. So, it is not all Asians.

    JD (a11194)

  13. DRJ…

    Tell me you’re not shocked at the 89%…

    :)

    Scott Jacobs (a1de9d)

  14. more importantly, regarding Mary Katherine Ham on Fox News … How you doin?

    carlitos (5d7926)

  15. And a racist state like MO voted for Barack Obama in 2008. Nice.

    carlitos (5d7926)

  16. Obama speaks purty, they say. I don’t see the magic, just seems like a guy who tumbled into a taxpayer salary to run for a better job. Mighty ethical.

    He does win points for trying to be civil with the Clinton machine. Voters were apparently left drooling for more. Truthfully, it’s the warmed over Kennedyisms that are so concocted.

    I hope if neophyte gets the ticket, he falls victim to the John Edwards debating curse. That’s foreign policy… no plans, no subsatnce, no experience. Hopefully meaning no chance.

    Vermont Neighbor (c6313b)

  17. Scott,

    The Utah vote does surprise me some. Orrin Hatch got only 78% of the vote in his 2006 primary, and he was running against 3 unknowns.

    DRJ (517d26)

  18. JD (comment 12):

    Certainly not ALL Asian-Americans, but good heavens, she is projected to take 70% of their vote tonight. That is quite an impressive margin. Not to be politically incorrect (I’m a right-winger, so I can’t help it), but is this owing to the sometimes strained relations between Blacks and Asians in California?

    JVW (b03dfa)

  19. And also, I recalling hearing that Vietnamese-Americans are the Asians most likely to vote Republican, or at the very least they are more likely than Chinese-Americans, Korean-Americans, or Japanese-Americans.

    JVW (b03dfa)

  20. JVW – My relatives do not call themselves Vietnamese-Americans. Actually, at the most recent family reunion, the family elder made it a point to tell everyone that they are Americans first and foremost. But your point is accurate. I think when it is broken down, Vietnamese are far more conservative, even the later generations, but especially the adults that came over after the war.

    JD (a11194)

  21. The main result is that polling has now been completely discredited. Compare the recent polls to the actual California result as just an example.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  22. Well really, the Dem pols might as well have been asking “Will you vote for Obama, or shall I just mark you down for a sheet-fitting, you dirty racist?”

    Scott Jacobs (a1de9d)

  23. Obama can speak eloquently for hours without saying anything. Change, Seize the Moment bla bla bla. He is appealing to the emotion types.

    Dennis D (aacd7f)

  24. SPQR – It has finally been discredited? I thought that happened a long long long time ago.

    JD (75f5c3)

  25. DRJ — Your right wingers seem to follow you everywhere. You write; they react. It seems you run an intellectual redneck network. Your fame among certain WASP (White Anglo Saxon Prosecutors)is legend. I have heard of this group; the Criminal Law Analysis Unit, or CLAN for short.

    JimH (b44803)

  26. JimH, did they run out of thorazine at your local pharmacy?

    Steverino (e00589)

  27. Stevie good one lol

    JimH (b44803)

  28. I wish I could say the same for you, Jimbo. By the way, “unit” doesn’t begin with an “n”.

    Steverino (e00589)

  29. DRJ — Your right wingers seem to follow you everywhere. You write; they react.

    Yes, JimH, it’s called a “blog.” Welcome to the 21st Century.

    JVW (b03dfa)

  30. It’s really sad that you sit back on your lazy behinds in past judgement.Why don’t you go out in do something to make thisworld abetter place.It is also sad when those who have been the recipents of discrimination rather then reaching for what is best for them,they are still seeking the acceptance of those who we always see them as others,rather trhan voting with those who show some semplance of acceptance by voting some one colored like themseves. This Reagonism all over again but saddenly for them it is self-imposed not manufactored from without.

    david (f290d3)

  32. Why don’t you go out in do something to make thisworld abetter place.

    I am. I shovelled the snow out of the sidewalk in front of my house an hour ago and although the snow keeps on falling I will keep on shovelling so that pedestrians will have an easier time of it.

    nk (4ebdf4)

  33. uh oh, I’m being ganged up on. david is so important he repeats himself; and, of course, N=Network. You need to know the DRJ history to understand.

    I am your best friend; look at how I create a united front, allow you to vent and fill you with feelings of satisfaction. Where is my thanks.

    You may now present your next witty response.

    I semi-apologize; DRJ, in prior, communication presented ridiculous conclusions and ultimately supported insulting me an my family.

    I shall ignore her and this DRJ post; although, she has given vital information that is available on any tv, radio or newspaper.

    JimH (b44803)

  34. Patterico,

    Could you possibly ban JimH? There’s really something way creepy about him, especially his focus on DRJ. Also, could you preserve his IP and whatever other information your tracking programs reveal in case he is more than the loon he makes himself out to be?

    nk (4ebdf4)

  35. P.S. Unless, of course, you’re already on top of the situation and his comments will help identify him.

    nk (4ebdf4)

  36. “The numbers do tend to look more promising the further west we go, at least until the votes cross the Rockies.”

    – JD

    In my humble opinion, you’re not “West” until you’re west of the Rockies. Sorry, Texas.

    Leviticus (3c99fc)

  37. Why don’t you go out in do something to make thisworld abetter place.

    I don’t have snow to shovel like nk does, but I go to work and pay taxes which serves two noble purposes: (1) I help to keep the economy going and (2) I help fund all the things the government spends our money on.

    No no, don’t thank me, I’m only doing my duty ma’am.

    JVW (b03dfa)

  38. Good Lord,

    What are they teaching kids these days? “The West” is between the Mississippi and the borders of California, Washington and Oregon.

    nk (4ebdf4)

  39. wow utah favored a white mormon republican…..shocking

    Jeremy (85ceb7)

  40. Yeah, Jeremy, it’s really shocking that in the Republican primary, Utah favored a Republican.

    Did someone forget to close the gate to Stupidia this morning?

    Steverino (e00589)

  41. Note that the California results have narrowed, and it’s now closer to 52/44 than to the results originally reported.
