Oh Hillary there you go again.

I don’t know if it’s because my mind seems to be foggy because I’m coming down with the flu (again!) or if Hillary has actually gone off the deep end.  The footage I’ve seen of her patronizing Barack Obama in Ohio struck a chord.  This chord is calibrated to pick up to pick up condescending […]

Recent Absence

Lucky Thirteen is having some computer troubles.  Her unique insight will return soon to talk about Fidel Castro’s resignation, Obama’s recent victories, and the Kara Walker and Carrie Mae Weems’ shows.

What’s new Hillary?

Has anyone noticed Hillary Clinton’s website face lift? When did she change this? It looks like she’s lifted Obama’s website template. I guess if you can’t beat ’em join ’em.

Blue, Red, or Purple?

Look at the totals of people voting in elections. In most of the elections, open and closed, the total number voting in the Democratic primary is higher than the total number voting in the Republican primary. Which color is that state going to be in the fall? I would like to venture a guess, it’s […]

Converations over Hookah with the NAACP

Dear NAACP, Why are you requesting that Michigan and Florida have delegates seated at the convention? Now, some media folks are trying to construe that as a de facto endorsement of Hillary Clinton. If I am correct, the NAACP does not traditionally endorse a candidate. Being that I just heard about this I would have […]

Chesapeake/Potomac Primary

So, it seems Obama is sweeping again. Ah, the smell of success. I never knew it was so sweet to win. Now, looking at numbers it seems that Obama’s campaign knows how to learn and learns quickly. He is splitting the white vote, he is winning the >$50,000 income voters, he is winning Blacks overwhelmingly, […]

Politico is Fabo.

First, Ben Smith’s blog on Politico.com is fabulous.  The comments are even more fabulous.  I would like to direct your eyes to an even more interesting place – the posts by Rafael.  I think she has some pretty good empirical evidence for why one ought to not vote for Billary. And, it’s great solidarity in […]

Proud to be from the Bay

I just wanted to note the area in the country with the highest concentration of college degrees is the Bay Area. They voted for Obama overwhelmingly in Marin, San Francisco, and Alameda Counties. It’s time to peace out of New York City and move back home. 🙂 I was just struck with another thought regarding […]

CNN, MSNBC, or Fox?

  When I departed my friend’s house endowed with cable at 3:30 am, I left knowing California was leaning towards Clinton with 53% to Obama’s 39% with 54% of precincts reporting. I had been watching a steady climb from a lowly 32% on Obama’s side while Clinton held steady at 53%. Interestingly enough my silly […]

I’m thinking about Super Tuesday

Of the southern states voting today, I would just like to point out that their electorates, according to Roland Martin on a CNN video link I posted earlier, consist of 30%+ black voters. Now, my friends, that is a pretty significant percentage, especially if the whole bloc votes the same way. Naturally, this all depends […]
