Late Night: You Go Girl!

Have you heard? Hillary Clinton‘s “fund-raising roared to life on Wednesday, with her campaign collecting $10 million in the hours after she won the Pennsylvania primary.” That’s right… $10 million in 24 hours!

Campaign officials said they raised $10 million in online donations in the 24 hours after her Pennsylvania victory, the campaign’s best one-day money haul. The contributors included at least 70,000 new donors, the officials said. 

Keep it coming Clinton supporters… Keep it coming.

Did you know that “rules provide for the Florida and Michigan delegations to be seated“? (h/t to Susie)

Incase you were wondering what it was like on the ground in Pennsylvania in the days right before the primary, go read NewHampster’s diaries from Scranton, on MYDD. There’s some really special pieces there from NewHampster including this one.

“Who’s Stronger in November Against McCain?” — Jeralyn answers the question.

And what late night post would be a late night post with out a late night top ten? I’ve got your top ten right here: The Top Ten List of Undisputed Facts Showing Barack Obama’s Weakness in the General Election Against John McCain.

Which brings me to another question: Is Barack Obama The Next McGovern?

Up next Indiana. Did you know they are not so hip on “change” there. Maybe they’re more interested in some one who listens to their concerns. Like Hillary Clinton.

Keep up the momentum Hillary! You GoAll the way to the White HouseGirl!

    What A Black Columnist Says About Barack Obama

    Ken Blackwell – Columnist for the New York Sun

    It’s an amazing time to be alive in America . We’re in a year of
    firsts in this presidential election: the first viable woman
    candidate; the fir st viable African-American candidate; and, a
    candidate who is the first frontrunning freedom fighter over 70. The
    next president of America will be a first.

    We won’t truly be in an election of firsts, however, until we judge
    every candidate by where they stand. We won’t arrive where we should
    be until we no longer talk about skin color or gender. Now that
    Barack Obama steps to the front of the Democratic field, we need to
    stop talking about his race, and start talking about his policies and
    his politics.

    The reality is this: Though the Democrats will not have a nominee
    until August, unless Hillary Clinton drops out, Mr. Obama is now the
    frontrunner, and its time America takes a closer and deeper look at

    Some pundits are calling him the next John F. Kennedy. He’s not. He’s
    the next George McGovern. And it’s time people learned the facts.

    Because the truth is that Mr. Obama is the single most liberal senator
    in the entire U.S. Senate. He is more liberal than Ted Kennedy,
    Bernie Sanders, or Mrs. Clinton. Never in my life have I seen a
    presidential frontrunner whose rhetoric i s so far removed from his
    record. Walter Mondale promised to raise our taxes, and he lost.
    George McGovern promised military weakness, and he lost. Michael
    Dukakis promised a liberal domestic agenda, and he l ost.

    Yet Mr. Obama is promising all those things, and he’s not behind in
    the polls. Why? Because the press has dealt with him as if he were in
    a beauty pageant. Mr. Obama talks about getting past party, getting
    past red and blue, to lead the United States of America . But let’s
    look at the more defined strokes of who he is underneath this
    superficial “beauty.”

    Start with national security, since the president’s most important
    duties are as commander-in-chief. Over the summer, Mr. Obama talked
    about invading Pakistan, a nation armed with nuclear weapons; meeting
    without preconditions with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who vows to destroy
    Israel and create another Holocaust; and Kim Jong II, who is murdering
    and starving his people, but emphasized that the nuclear option was
    off the table against terrorists – something no president has ever
    taken off the table since we created nuclear weapons in the 1940s.
    Even Democrats who have worked in national security condemned all of
    those remarks. Mr. Obama is a foreign-policy novice who would put our
    national security at risk.

    Next, consider economic policy. For all its faults, our health care
    system is the strongest in the world. And free trade agreements,
    created by Bill Clinton as well as President Bush, have made more
    goods more affordable so that even people of modest means can live a
    life that no one imagined a generation ago. Yet Mr. Obama promises to
    raise taxes on “the rich.” How to fix Social Security? Raise taxes.
    How to fix Medicare? Raise taxes. Prescription drugs? Raise taxes.
    Free college? Raise taxes. Socialize medicine? Raise taxes. His
    solution to everything is to have government take it over. Big Brother
    on steroids, funded by your paycheck.

    Finally, look at the social issues. Mr. Obama had the audacity to open
    a stadium rally by saying, “All praise and glory to God!” but says
    that Christian leaders speaking for life and marriage have “hijacked”
    – hijacked – Christianity. He is pro-partial birth abortion, and
    promises to appoint Supreme Court justices who will rule any
    restriction on it unconstitutional. He espouses the abortion views of
    Margaret Sanger, one of the early advocates of racial cleansing. His
    spiritual leaders endorse homosexual marriage, and he is moving in
    that direction. In Illinois , he refused to vote against a statewide
    ban – ban – on all handguns in the state. These are radical left,
    Hollywood , and San Francis co values, not Middle America values.

    The real Mr. Obama is an easy target for the general election. Mrs.
    Clinton is a far tougher opponent. But Mr. Ob ama could win if people
    don’t start looking behind his veneer and flowery speeches. His vision
    of “bringing America together” means saying that those who disagree
    with his agenda for America are hijackers or warmongers. Uniting the
    country means adopting his liberal agenda and abandoning any
    conflicting beliefs.

    But right now everyone is talking about how eloquent of a speaker he
    is and – yes – they’re talking about his race. Those should never be
    the factors on which we base our choice for president. Mr. Obama’s
    radical agenda sets him far outside the American ma instream, to the
    left of Mrs. Clinton.

    It’s time to talk about the real Barack Obama. In an election of
    firsts, let’s first make sure we elect the person who is qualified to
    be our president in a nuclear age during a global civilizational war.

    Kind of scary, wouldn’t you think?

    Remember–God is good, and is in time, on time–every time.

    According to The Book of Revelation:

    The anti-christ will be a man, in his 40s, of MUSLIM descent, who will
    deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE
    Christ-like appeal….the prophecy says that people will flock to him
    and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in
    power, will destroy everything. Is it OBAMA??

    I STRONGLY URGE each one of you to repost this as many times as you
    can! Each opportunity that you have to send it to a friend or media
    outlet…do it!

    If you think I am crazy..Im sorry but I refuse to take a chance on the
    “unknown” candidate

  2. While parts of that column are wackier than Donald Duck with a bottle of cheap mescal, he hits on a number of key points about the politically incorrect concept of electability.

    The Prime Directive of politics: First, Get Elected!

    I believe, after living through McGovern etc, that the General Election would be in serious trouble with Barrack Obama as the nominee. It won’t be McCain attacking directly from the campaign trail but the candidate PAC’s and 527 that surround his movement. They will rip him to pieces.

    Already he whines about a difficult campaign with HRC. This is elementary school compared to a presidential general election.
