Primary Coverage

I am watching the primary coverage for the last time for four years, and man am I relieved this is over.

Norah O’Donnell is getting more and more pregnant (and looks great), and is wearing a purple dress that has me wondering if we are going to hear “Heard It Through The GrapeVine” pumped on to the MSNBC set. Chris Matthews looks drunk, and his commentary reinforces that perception.

Right now they are talking about how much the Democrats hate each other. It is almost as if they forgot all the pledges by Republicans to vote for Hillary over McCain when he got the nod. Kill me. Kill me now.

Consider this your primary open thread.

*** Update ***

So the night Obama wins the nomination, the entire media coverage is focussed on Clinton’s brazen and successful attempt to hijack the limelight with story of her struggle and her desire to be VP. Is there really anyone who can not figure out that five months of her attempting to upstage Obama followed by perhaps 8 years of the same would be a disaster? Really? Anyone?

*** Update #2 ***

McCain’s speech is just hideous. Where is he delivering this? A retirement community?

*** Update #3 ***

I am so sick and tired of what Hillary wants and what Obama has to do to placate her. Here, Hillary, how about this- how about you walk your supporters back from the ledge, you work your ass off to elect Obama, and we re-elect you in 2012 to another term in Nita Lowey’s Senate seat where you can hang out for four more years with your BFF John McCain, whose ass we are going to kick in November, before your 2016 run for President? And if you kick Penn in the nuts, good on you.

    OH! I thought Matthews only looked drunk ‘cuz I am drunk! Exit polls make me nauseous, at this point (unless it’s the cheap wine?), so I have to flip off Nora every time she comes on. Sadly, I also have to flip off Lou Dobbs. There is no tee vee refuge for me tonight (except for Stewart/Colbert in a few on repeat from last night. Yay.)

    I just whipped off an email to Russert, for all the good it will do, and begged him: PLEASE ASK THE OTHER ANCHORS TO STOP TALKING ABOUT HILLARY! JUST FOR ONE DAMN NIGHT! IT’S NOT HER NIGHT!
    Thank you, Tim,

    To me, the Democratic Party is only marginally less worthless than the Republicans but it is a wonderful thing for the Party to nominate an African-American for President and will be an even better thing for the world if Obama wins.

    It’s a great historical moment and all the voters who took part in it should take a bow.

    Don’t worry. They’ll remember them before November. McCain really does suck. He only doesn’t look horrible because he’s been getting a free pass since February.

    “Kill me. Kill me now.”

    And miss all the fun over the next few months?

    I am really hating that McCain plus Hillary are once again double-teaming to rob Obama of this moment. I can understand why McCain is trying to do it, but now they say Hillary has won S.D., and continues to hold the nomination process hostage. I have yet to see her do the gracious and unselfish thing ONCE. Every time she is supposedly conceding a loss, she refuses to do it. Now she SAYS she is going to do everything she can for Obama, but actions speak louder than words. I have seen No Actions (and very very few words) to indicate this is anything but ALL ABOUT HILLARY.

    Obama has got to take control of this situation. She cannot force his hand. Her selfishness becomes more and more clear the longer she refuses to leave the stage. Surely her stock is dropping and will continue to drop if she goes forward.

    McCain says he is not Bush’s third term. Who is McCain? He is whoever and whatever he has to be at any given moment, saying anything (like HRC) to pander to the audience of the time. He has no moral compass. McCain as the change candidate is laughable.

    Swiped from a friend, as a possible slogan for McCain:

    Adult Undergarments: Change you can relieve in.

    HRC

    please go away

    She sounded the alarm on the mortgage crisis? then why did she vote for the bankruptcy bill?

    I’m really trying to listen for the best, but, so far, I’m still kind of nervous.

    I’m not sure I’ll be able to tell the difference between the zombies and Hillary supporters.

    The Hillary supporters will keep interrupting you with unintelligible shouts.

    And seriously, the dude in the yellow striped shirt is apparently Lenny from “Of Mice and Men.”

    Did anyone catch the panning shot of the crowd? I swear I saw Pat Benatar.

    reid says:

    This is a pointless speech at this point. Worse, considering all she’s doing is further lathering up her deluded base. She is painfully vain. Sometimes you need to step out of the spotlight, no matter how good the chanting and applause feels.

    cd6 says:

    You know, I think she’s wrapping up. Hitting the issues and thanking supporters.

    At this point I don’t care if she doesn’t say “Vote for Obama,” I’ll be happy if she just goes away.

    The crowd chanted Denver and she just kept talking.
    Here comes the money shot.

    Well, see, that’s what the zombies do too.

    RoonieRoo says:

    Okay, well, I haven’t listened to her past speeches so maybe I’m just not primed. I didn’t think it was that bad of a speech or that devisive.

    TheFountainHead says:

    If the people at this rally are any indication, her supporters have become larger a mess than she can control.

    That was the weirdest fucking speech I have ever seen. I don’t even want to think about the implications.

    .. the boy who sold his bike and video games..

    .. the Russian mobsters who channeled money into Kazhakstan for an energy project that netted Bill thirty million dollars, twenty million of which I blew on pizza for the staffers..

    Cain says:

    awwww..shiit… why god.. WHY!? Why must this still go on?! The way forward Hillary is to suspend the damn campaign. Shit on a stick! I need another drink.. muthafucka! I’m goin ghetto, yo.

    Harold Ford didn’t know how to overcome the racist vote, Obama did, and HE’S the one giving OBAMA advice?

    To be fair, Ford was running in Tennessee. Let’s pray that America isn’t the same way.

    She’s actually proud about taking money from an 11-year-old boy…

    Cain says:

    SHe gave a big fuck you to the rest when her campaign started playing “Won’t back down” by Tom Petty. heh.

    Spunky.

    reid says:

    RonnieRoo, it wasn’t a bad speech in general. It was a pretty lousy concession speech, though. Generally, to appear classy, you congratulate your opponent on their victory, not proclaim your imaginary credentials for having won and talk at length about what you’d do as president.

    We should’ve seen Hillary’s speech coming.

    I was surprised when she didn’t run off a litany of items we could all sell to fund her campaign.

    cd6 says:

    I love that Hillary is saying “I’m not making any decisions tonight.”

    I got news for you, Hill. You don’t get to decide. All us democrats get to decide. And we decided already. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

    The Other Steve says:

    Ok, that was not a concession speech.

    Funny… Olbermann is pointing out that Clinton’s venue has no television, nor does it have cell phone service. so nobody there knows what is happening in the real world.

    Was the first thing I thought of when they said it would be in the basement. No Blackberry.

    Okay your #3 update made me LOL. So spot on. And thank you for the shout out to Nita Lowey, who is awesome and a class act and who would make a MUCH better US Senator from the state of NY.

    Church Lady says:

    Does anyone but me see the irony in Keith Olbermann’s near constant bitching about Hillary sucking the oxygen out of Barack’s moment, while talking about her non-stop?

    w vincentz says:

    Yes, she didn’t make a decision tonight. Does that mean she’ll wake up at 3:00 AM when the red phone rings and make a decision at that time?

    Sole entertaining moment of the night… Lanny Davis on Larry King Live trying to “soldier on” while work crews are loudly tearing down the convention hall set and wandering on-and-off camera in the background (sometimes only a few feet away). Good Lord, could CNN not find a studio or quiet corner somewhere for the poor guy? :)
