The states of the races

Barack Obama's huge win will have the punditry going ga-ga and insisting he has the momentum now.  Don't believe it.

Meanwhile, the Republican race continues to be unpredictable, although it appears the winner of the Florida primary will have the inside track to the nomination.  The readers from up north might be wondering why there is so much angst among Republican voters about this field of candidates.  I tried to explain why here; what follows is the main thrust - my reactions during the last debate on Thursday night:

In fact, I was more disturbed by the state of the race after I saw the debate than before.  I drifted from candidate to candidate during the debate, only to have the candidates themselves remind me why I stayed away from them in the first place.

I know it sounds weird, but the more we find out about these candidates, the worse they look.  It could be a tremendous problem for the GOP come November.

"Interesting how all week the U.S. media have been reporting about how conflicted black women in South Carolina are about the Democratic primary. We were told numerous times by reporters who are either stupid or were just playing games with their audience that black women had a difficult decision to make. They could go with race (Obama) or gender (Clinton). Black men were expected to go with race for Obama but apparently it was too difficult to predict how black women would vote.

According to the first exit polls while 80% of black men voted for Obama, as expected, 82% of black women also voted for a man of their race rather than a white woman. So much for being conflicted."

And this surprises who?

Oh, yeah. The politically correct denialist. I forgot.

The question I have is, should lesbians support Hillary as a female or Obama as an outsider?

The answer will determine which way albino quadropolegics with HIV will swing.

F***ing hypocrites all of them!

Any comments on the McCain sellout? I haven't heard anything from the MSM about this. Juan Hernandez and now George Soros supporting McCain. I actually thought at one point, he might not be so bad. See the link. GO ROMNEY!

Micael Coren has a good article on our southern friend.

I am not an American and cannot vote in any U.S. election. If I could, however, I would vote for virtually anyone other than Barack Obama. Not because of his colour. Condoleezza Rice, for example, would make an outstanding president of the United States. No, it is because Obama is affiliated with racists and bigots.
