In Chicago, Obama used lawyers to prevent the voters from having any choice except Obama.  

His fancy, hotshot Harvard lawyer buddies caught minor technicalities on the petitions of Obama's opponents, and effectively kicked them out of the running.
This included rights activist, Alice Palmer.  

Now, slick lawyers are preventing the voters in TWO STATES from the democratic process.  Hillary Clinton has the popular vote.  But the technicalities will kick in so that the voters are suppressed.  All nice and legal

This is undemocratic.  
This is the worst abuse of lawyers in the history of this country.

TRed for accusing a commenter of being a paid shill.

If you provide evidence, it will be removed.

they got waivers

which, by definition, means they didn't break the rules.

please delete and after you familiarize yourself with the subject please write another one(or not).

Re: and why weren't waivers

Because FL and MI, unlike the other three states, were not given permission by the DNC to hold elections before February 5.

Now you know.  Ignorance is no longer an excuse.  If you bring those three states up again without addressing this, you will be called out for intellectual dishonesty.

He/She's no different than several other GOP trolls been on here before, but you're blaming us for him/her.  No he/she is his own player and we have no responsibility for him.  Stop projecting onto us.

Re: and why weren't waivers

Because they broke the order of the votes.  The other states were given waivers to restore the order. Are you so biased that you can't at least understand that logic?

by IowaMike 2008-05-30 07:52AM | 0 recs
Re: and why weren't waivers

Because they were never permitted to be in the pre window period.  Those that were granted waivers were permitted to be in the prewindow period the waivers were just a matter of sequence.

Re: and why weren't waivers
Uprated to Troll. He may actually not know. After all, you can't expect random (probably GOP) troll trainees to know what happened in the Democratic primary system, can you?


by Vancouverite 2008-05-30 08:18AM | 0 recs

I think the outcome should be decided by what the rules say, not what some voters wish they said. If that means the lawyers decide, so be it.

(but if a majority of voters decide that in future the lawers should rewrite the rules that is fine by me)

They weren't out of line

SC had permission to be in the first four.

MI and FL did not.  Simple, eh?

Instant replay

You wrote practically the same thing yesterday.  C'mon, get new material.  Does McCain pay for spam, or something that might actually convince someone?

Honestly, I apprecaite that you want to help your candidate; don't think we're stupid, however.  The one-week grace period just ended for all the people who signed up as McCain bloggers... even if you're sincere, you should at least wait a few weeks before starting in so people won't make obvious conclusions

Hmm.  I suppose by then Obama will be the nominee and you'll have to come up with a new schtick.  I see the dilemma.

by Dracomicron 2008-05-30 06:31AM | 0 recs

I'm posting from my 40 hour-a-week job, where I have some time in between other duties to write.  

Obama, thankfully, doesn't need to pay his people to blog.  We believe in him enough to do it for free.

You accused one commenter of being a paid shill, with no evidence.

You went after the personal life of another.

Thus far, through two diaries of yours, you've been nothing but hostile to anyone who brings up an opposing viewpoint - and I've noticed that Clinton supporters aren't exactly lining up to get your back.

You are a troll.  Please reform your behavior and apologize, or leave.

Re: Daily Kos reality is a fiction world

You always ignore the substance (the math) and go for a personal attack. That is why you lose, and you are really pretty sad. I actually feel sorry for you.

But, I'm sure you will say something to both confirm my point in this comment and end any sympathy I may feel for you.

Let's here it.....

Student Guy,

I'm waiting for the second part of your Symposium on Trolls, where I believe you're going to expound on the mindset and thought processes of trolls.  I wonder if I could pose a couple of queries for you to address:

1) What gratification do you think dogking gets from commenting in this diary, where nobody has taken his back?  If he's so obvious that even the most aggressive pro-Clinton voices don't rec your diary or give you love, where's the joy in disrupting?

2) Does the average troll believe that directly responding to counterarguments with really pretty crude personal attacks does anything?  Like anything at all?  I mean, it doesn't even piss people off!  It just makes people think they don't even have their hearts in it.

3) How long does the average chaos troll keep posting diaries and comments?  I mean, if dogking is trying to turn people against Obama, he's failing.  If he's trying to rally Clinton people around something, he's failing.  If he's trying to piss everybody off so the threads turn into insult-fests and flame-wars, he's failing.  And if he's trying to spread this discredited meme for pro-McCain purposes, he's failing (one rec so far).  So what, like one week?  Five days?

Looking forward to reading it!

I like the current attack on Obama challenging the petitions of his state senate election:

Many of the candidates he was running against admitted they bought sheets of illegal signatures from shady Democratic operatives. Alice Palmer herself didn't decide to run for her seat (for which she'd already endorsed Obama) until she'd lost another election, and only had a few weeks to gather the appropriate signatures. Nobody but Obama gathered the correct number of legal signatures. That's his fault? I don't think so.

by dantes 2008-05-30 11:56AM | 0 recs
Wow! The Obama folks really like to troll rate

And hide rate.

Isn't Obama hiring lawyers to support his cause?

Didn't he use them before in Illinois to throw out his opponents, so he could run unopposed?

Why don't you want this to be seen?
