The Democratic Party Exposed

You have to got to love how the Obama people have been sending out pundits and politicians all day on the news programs insisting that the Democratic party is unified and that Hillary and Bill and Obama are all cozy now. Really. They are. THEY ARE.

Either they are ignoring reality or they are hoping saying it will make it so.

They are ignoring this and this:

"At some point today, possibly employing methods antithetical to Democracy, the Democratic Party will vote for its candidate for president. The Democratic Party will vote to nominate Hillary Clinton for president or the Party will commit suicide.

Hillary Clinton’s majestic speech last night does not help the unqualified-to-be-president Barack Obama. Hillary Clinton’s kind words about Barack Obama last night merely underline the obvious: Hillary must be the Democratic Party nominee if there is any chance to win the White House this year.

But the Democratic Party is on course to self-slaughter."

The Obama camp is keeping an embarassing roll call from the floor. Do they not see how this makes those Hillary supporters even angrier??

You don't believe me? Check out this post at Talkleft where a blogger posts an open letter to disgruntled Hillary supporters telling them why it is so important to vote for Obama. Then read every single comment that tells him to basically go stuff it.

It gets better. Check out Over 1,200 comments on the last post and all opposed to Obama. One commenter said "I hope McCain has the good sense to realize the potential gift he’s been given!!!"

He does sweetie, he does.

So while Obama is supposedly "suppressing the vote" (according to some of the commenters) an ABC reporter was arrested digging up some dirt on the "new kind of politics" that Obama espouses:

Police in Denver arrested an ABC News producer today as he and a camera crew were attempting to take pictures on a public sidewalk of Democratic Senators and VIP donors leaving a private meeting at the Brown's Palace Hotel.

...Eslocker and his ABC News colleagues are spending the week investigating the role of corporate lobbyists and wealthy donors at the convention for a series of Money Trail reports on ABC World News with Charles Gibson.

What fun we are having exposing the Democratic party for what it is. Old school politics where wealth and lobbyists rule the day just as they unfortunately do in the Republican party.

There is no "new politics." There is only our belief in our party's platform. It really comes down to that.

**One little update. Guess how long Bill Clinton's speech is tonight? TEN MINUTES. Can you believe that? He is going to say what he needs to and then get out of there before Obama accepts the nomination.
