Primary Night Open Thread

By Jesse Taylor

Comment here. 9:01 PM: McCain’s speech was inspiring. Literally dozens of people standing in a room, booing things. I can only hope he’s as good of a president as he is a talker…person…man. 9:02 PM: Obama’s our nominee! 9:04 PM: McCain should bring Wiis to campaign events. I’ve heard old, angry people don’t hate those with every fiber of their being. Yet. I don’t think that Hillary will or should concede tonight. I’d rather see…

By Jesse Taylor

John Cole writes about… (I go away for three years, come back, and John Cole is not only making sense, but he’s a really good read? Is Digby the despotic overlord of Oakland now?) …the “whitey” tape rumors that are tearing up the rumor mill. And by “tearing up”, I…


Jim Neal backs Obama/Clinton ticket

By pams

(NOTE: CNN is reporting that Hillary will concede tonight, but Camp Clinton says CNN/AP got it wrong: “Senator Clinton will not concede the nomination this evening.”) I’m a huge fan of former U.S. Senate candidate Jim Neal fan, as Blenders and Pandas know, but I can’t get behind a “reconciliation…

We’re Having A Moment Here

By Jesse Taylor

Many schools have adopted the requirement that any potentially inflammatory presentation or material will be given the yay or nay for each student through their parents’ permission. The wisdom of this is arguable, especially as the potential realm of “objectionable” grows to the point where asking students to put down…
