Obama's Mama.....

... must be proud.

It's on! All eyes on Pennsylvania.

Alabama and Georgia went to Obama. I couldn't pull California into the win column. I tried. I voted a 8 different precincts. My costumes were awesome.

Obama claims delegate lead:

"In a surprise twist after a chaotic Super Tuesday, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) passed Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) in network tallies of the number of delegates the candidates racked up last night.

The Obama camp projects topping Clinton by nine delegates, 845 to 836."

I agree. "Bipartisanship" is for chumps. I want MORE partisanship from the Dems.

Glenn Greenwald - Political Blogs and Opinions - Salon:

"But more importantly, 'bipartisanship' is already rampant in Washington, not rare. And, in almost every significant case, what 'bipartisanship' means in Washington is that enough Democrats join with all of the Republicans to endorse and enact into law Republican policies, with which most Democratic voters disagree. That's how so-called 'bipartisanship' manifests in almost every case.

Many people, especially partisans, always believe that their own side is compromising too much and that the other side is always winning, so it's best to consult objective facts in order to know how 'bipartisanship' works. Here are the vote breakdowns by party over the last couple years on the most significant and contentious pieces of legislation, particularly (though not only) in the area of national security."

Ummm, this doesn't happen in FEBRUARY. Brutal

Tornadoes Rip Through South, Killing 48:

"Daybreak revealed a battered landscape across the South on Wednesday, as crews searching communities hit by a violent line of tornadoes fought through downed power lines, crumpled mobile homes and snapped trees to find victims. At least 48 people were dead."

This made me laugh:
