Feeling A Little Ill...

I have to admit, I am feeling a bit ill this morning. I picked up my newspaper, and there was a lovely photo of Hillary Clinton, with the headline, "Clinton 'proud" to back Obama." Ugh. I know, I know, she is a sitting US Senator, and a Democratic one to boot, so yes, she HAS to say that. I guess. I am still just so dismayed at what the Democratic Party has become this year, I can barely stand it. Like I said, it makes me ill. I never, ever thought I would see this day.

Others have been discussing Obama's "Greek temple" stage, and some of the other Convention shenanigans, so I'll spare you. Except to say this about the FAKE Greek Temple - that should be a little clue to all of you Obama supporters out there of his real mindset. I'm just sayin' - take a good hard look, and then ask yourselves - what the heck were you THINKING?!?!?! Because of ONE LOUSY SPEECH you think this first term senator who has done nothing of note but run for President really DESERVES the highest office in the land?? And you are willing to destroy the Democratic Party, denirgate the only two-term Democratic president in four decades, and any real chance of taking BACK the White House with this man? All I can ask is, WHY??? WHY are you so supportive of him? What has he done that makes you think he will follow up on ANY ONE of his promises?? Why do you dismiss the people with whom he chooses to surround himself?? Why do you keep claiming he has "good judgment"??? I just do not get it. I do not understand any of this.

And then there's Howard Dean. And Donna Brazile. Nancy Pelosi. John Kerry. Ted Kennedy. ESPECIALLY Ted Kennedy, the man who fought tooth and nail for the Democratic nomination has become the one DEMANDING the popular vote winner get out of the race, and shut up already. All of them did not even want Hillary Clinton on the ROLL CALL. All of the leadership at the DNC has to be thrown out if we have any chance whatsoever of re-CLAIMING the DNC. What these people have done, what the DNC has BECOME is anything BUT Democratic.

So, Hillary Clinton's speech is done. I am so going to miss hearing from her. Whoever wins this election, it will be four more years of me not being able to listen to the president speak, that's for sure.

Oh, and one last thing - as others have pointed out so eloquently - HILLARY CLINTON is not responsible for Obama's loss OR win (yeah, right). Stop freakin' blaming your candidate's poor performances on HER. It is ALL about him, which is what those of us who did not drink the Kool Aide have been saying all along. Instead of focusing so much of your energies on Clinton and REAL Democrats, maybe you should have been looking at who Obama realy is/is not. She is not his mother, she is not his handmaiden, she is not the cause of his not getting our votes - HE is doing that all by his own self. So knock it off already and get a clue. Go look at him standing up in his faux Greek temple, and open your eyes. It's too late for this election, though, but still, maybe, JUST maybe, we'll get the Democratic Party back to being one of Democratic ideals - REAL Democratic ideal, not vote stealing, caucus fraud, and all of the stuff you already know the DNC did this year. Yep, getting back to real Democratic Ideas? Now THAT would be change I could believe in.

And this is WHO I believe in:

Try not to choke on your bitterness as you watch Sen. Obama get nominated tonight and supress that gag reflex when he takes the oath of office in Jan, but be assured even though you hate him, he'll still be your President and he'll work to make your life better.

My "bitterness" is the result of the cheating and theft that the DNC used to GET him this nomination. And I seriously doubt that, should he get elected (and since he's friends with Chuck "Diebold" Hagel, maybe he will), but if he does? He won't do a damn thing to improve MY life. He cares abt one thing - himself, and what he can do for himself. Period. And that includes what he can do for his friends to whom he funneled a bumch of money because why? Because it helped him. Pure and simple.
