Apparently, according to, Howard Dean went on CNN today, and insisted that the Super Delegates make their decision NOW!!! Right this minute! Screw PA, NC, WV, OR, along with MI and FL - what the hell, we don't need to know who those people want anyway! It doesn't matter, because Dean, Brazile, Pelosi, Leahy, and Dodd have ALREADY DECIDED FOR US!! It should be The Chosen One, the Least Qualified Candidate Ever! The one with all of the questionable associates!! The one who can't talk his way out of a paper bag unless its on a teleprompter! The one with the anger problem!! So, you people in all of those other states who haven't voted yet? Don't worry about it! We know what is best for you! Screw democracy!!! Who needs it? It's overrated anyway...

Yeah. Right. And to that, I said to Dean: Screw you. It is NOT your decision to make!! Oh, all right - I am a Southerner after all, and didn't say that EXACTLY. What I DID say was:

Dear Dr. Dean:

Stop inserting yourself into the primary process. You and Donna Brazile have already disenfranchised 2.5 million voters, and now you want to DEMAND that the Super Delegates declare for whom they are voting now??? They do not need to do so, sir, UNTIL THE CONVENTION!! They are free to learn, watch, and make a measured decision. They are free to decide, and even change their minds, if they so desire. How DARE you insist they declare NOW!!!

You are ruining this Party. You, Brazile, Pelosi, Leahy, and Dodd have done great damage to this party with your declarations. Many of us have determined to leave the Democratic Party because of the way you have conducted yourselves, especially by shoving your preferred candidate down our throats, and by the overhwlemingly SEXIST behavior that has been tolerated, and even encouraged. This has happened under YOUR WATCH, sir.

ENOUGH!!! LET US DECIDE WHO WE WANT FOR OUR NOMINEE!!!! Stop trying to take momentum away from Senator Clinton, like you did with FL and MI, which MUST be reinstated FULLY as they stand RIGHT NOW. Stop threatening and bullying the Super Delegates. STOP TRYING TO CONTROL THE OUTCOME!!

I have lost all respect for you. I will be changing my voter registration as a result of your actions, especially voter disenfranchsisement, blatant bias, and your desire to run an undemocratic process.

I would suggest that you need to consider resigning your position. Your actions have seriously damaged this party. Your actions and statements are having an adverse effect on this nomination, and are making a mockery of democracy. You need to step down, sir, before the Party is irreparably damaged.

Gee - I can't imagine just WHAT might have made Dean make this statement! Surely, it couldn't have anything to do with how badly Obama tanked last night, COULD IT?? Yeah. Uh huh. I am sure there will be more about this tomorrow. Lots of good comments on this over at NoQuarter, if you're interested (especially Uppity's - she has a way with words!).

Bottom line - Dean is destroying this Party. And he is losing the Democrats the chance to win back the White House. Nice job, Dean. I regret having ever supported you for this position. Had I but known...

Excellent letter, Amy. I want to send one off but today has been crazy and can't take the time to write it without dropping the f-bomb. I'm sure it will require multiple re-writes.

I noticed today, also, that one of the DNC Obamabots said that even if Hillary wins PA, which she surely will do, it won't be unless she wins North Carolina that the SD's will take her seriously. Every election, they move the bar higher for her. They continue to only count the States that Obama leads in, and anything that Hillary wins is dismissed. I'm so freakin' fed up with this shit. I hope the SD's aren't that stupid and that Dean doesn't sway them from voting for Hillary.

I hope Hillary wins PA by double digits and points out how much more money Obama spent and still can't close the deal. I don't know how much more of this bullshit I can take!

No kidding - it really is offensive - she's damned if she does, and damned if she doesn't. And what abt FL and MI??? How in the WORLD do they reconcile squelching all of those votes?? WHAT THE HELL HAS HAPPENED TO THE DEMOCRATIC PARY?!?!

I swear, I never thought I'd see anything like this. There is no way Obama is going to win the GE, no WAY. Even with Hillary trying to join us all together (so much for MISTER Unity - HA!), it ain't going to happen. Add his flipping her off to his sexist behavior, and there is NO WAY I will EVER vote for that man. No way.


SO - how was YOUR day?? :-)
