Debate? No thanks, we're good.

La Hilaria is clamoring for more debates. On the stump today in Indiana, she chided Sen. Obama and his supporters for "complaining" about the questions and moderators of the ABC News debate in Pennsylvania two weeks ago. Clinton campaign manager Maggie Williams sent a letter, by carrier pigeon, presumably, to the Obama campaign requesting that the two engage in a Lincoln-Douglas style debate in Indiana. Apparently, Team Clinton is going with the debate-dodging rhetoric as a form of attack on Barack Obama. Sen. Obama and his campaign have stated quite clearly that there will be no more debates prior to the May 6th elections. He's got voters to talk to and a General Election strategy to plan.
Barack Obama is our party's nominee. By refusing to accept this fact, Hillary and Bill Clinton are forcing the rest of us to continue living in their world - in their political universe - by prolonging the primary contests. I've had it with them. After 2008 is over, the only place I want to see Senator Clinton is on CSPAN2 during Senate floor debates. Bill needs to go to a place where black people might be happier to see him - like Africa - on his humanitarian trips with the Clinton Foundation. President Clinton's mouth has alienated enough African American voters to question his wife's ability to carry that vote in November. 
The way the Clintons have traded in the black vote for the bubba vote, have talked guns, taken (whiskey) shot photo-ops and the manner in which they have essentially marginalized the base of the Democratic Party is astonishing. The base of the Democratic Party is the black vote and African Americans have been fiercely loyal to the party. It is a mistake to discount this fact.

Debate or Roasting?

Update: Senator Obama goes Jay-Z:

The 21st Democratic Presidential Debate in Philadelphia last night was embarrassing. ABC News' George Stephanopoulos and Charlie Gibson decided to waste two hours of America's time asking questions about flag pins and retired 60's era radicals. Most of the debates have been on CNN or MSNBC, so I was looking forward to a good debate on the issues on free TV in front of a big national audience. What we got instead were questions about fake controversies regarding Barack Obama's patriotism and then more questions about one of his neighbors, a 60's-era radical who the American public didn't know about until last night.

I suppose ABC News wanted to show up the cable channels and "get tough" on Senator Obama. There were no questions on education policy or any substantive discussion on foreign policy, but lots of talk about Bosnia, Bitter and the stuff that clogs up your junk mail. At times, I thought I was watching a political and very unfunny version of Comedy Central's Roast show. I was waiting for Senator Clinton to turn into Lisa Lampanelli and get her digs in, too. She showed mild restraint but I don't expect Team Clinton to protest too loudly, even though they should. It's not like their candidate got a chance to talk about the issues!

On behalf of people in politics, I apologize to the American public for making you miss your favorite shows or activities because of that sad display in politics last night. You know, there are soldiers dying in Iraq and Afghanistan and George wants to talk about flag pins. Unbelievable.

Sunday blogging

Okay, so... the family is getting together today in honor of my grandpa, Frank G. Guerrero, Sr. I went to church, sat with my family and then I stopped back home to change before heading to Grandma's.

I couldn't resist watching George Stephanopoulos first. He's my Sunday Talking Head of choice. President Carter was on today from Katmandu, Nepal. When President Carter isn't observing elections, he is defying U.S. foreign policy by meeting with Hamas, a terrorist organization, or so says the U.S. government. Carter is acting as a private citizen on behalf of the Carter Center, the policy think tank and foundation. The president also spoke about the Center's work eradicating the guinea worm and guinea worm disease in Africa.
I googled "guinea worm" and found several reference sites, and also something called Save the Guinea Worm Foundation. The site is linked through Seven Deadly Sins. Okay, I can take a joke.

Then on Stephanopoulos, George Will mentions the 7 Deadly Sins in reference to President Carter, saying that the President is motivated by pride. Whoa.

I perused the 7 Deadly Sins website for information on how I, as a bad Catholic, would suffer in hell as a result of my sinful demand to be treated like a human being. My options for torture, upon getting to hell, differ according to the sin. But geez.... how am I to choose what sin I am most guilty of? I'm going with the torture method that seems less gruesome and totally worth the sin:

Anyhow, back to Politics. I'm a flip-flopper. I just thought I'd mention one thing about the latest in the presidential campaigns. The whole bitter Obama controversy is nothing compared to the shady deals President Bill has been engaging in. Talk about some juicy, red meat for those Republicans to tear into. After watching Stephanopoulos, I'm convinced that Senator Obama will weather this Bitter storm. He needs to take Donna Brazile's advice and be that community organizer. Senator Clinton is making a fool out of her self drinking whiskey with the guys and waving her gun around. Who the hell is she trying to be, Dick Cheney?

Obama needs to expose the shady deals Bill Clinton has been making with China and Colombia that have contributed to the Clintons' considerable wealth. They are really cashing in on this Presidency thing.

I got that feeling...

You know the one. Like something isn't quite right. I am kind of bummed but not enough to just sit around and be lazy. So I sorted the clothes and picked up a little in the bedroom. I saw the Daniel Day-Lewis movie, There Will be Blood and have been avoiding the headlines. 

I made myself some food and ran an errand. It's a nice night. Going out would be fun, but I don't think I'd get in with my 90's era levi shorts and hole-y Stones t-shirt.

Home again, I pop open the computer and peruse the headlines. Ugh. There is that feeling again.

The Obama campaign is over. Dead. Hasta.
His stupid fucking remark at that high-dollar fundraiser was all anyone needs to beat us in November.


The End.


Peacefully, let's go to November together as a Party, stopping the Republicans and John McCain.
