The Leader of the Pack

This is hysterical:

It may come as a surprise to some of his supporters, but Democratic Presidential candidate Wesley K. Clark still hasn’t joined the Democratic Party. According to the Pulaski County (Ark.) Voter Registrar’s office, the former four-star general remains a registered independent. Even though he has been a declared candidate for the Dem nomination for two weeks now, he has yet to officially change his party affiliation.

A Clark campaign spokesman at first told BusinessWeek that the former general had in fact updated his voter registration to reflect his newfound status as a Democrat. But a call to the Pulaski County Voter Registrar indicated otherwise. When asked to explain the discrepancy, campaign consultant Mark Fabiani says Clark hadn’t yet had time to register as a Democrat.

Nine lifelong Democrats are trailing in the polls for the Democrat nomination to a registered independent. Snicker. All together, now:

“I am the very model of a modern major general…”

Florida, Part Two

This recall should be fun:

Setting the stage for a post-election legal challenge to the recall vote, Democrats are set to launch a national fund-raising campaign today to help pay for any legal action needed if Tuesday’s election on Gov. Gray Davis’ future is close.

Seeking to avoid what they called “another Florida-style fiasco,” the state party and a national Democratic group called Democrats for America’s Future said they hope to raise $100,000 to place poll watchers around the state Tuesday and to help with post-election legal challenges that may come up.

Note- it is about Gray Davis and the Democrats future, not the future of California. Just another arrow to keep in your quiver the next time a Democrat wants to claim that Republicans don’t care about winning elections.
