Okay, so Senator Clinton won Rhode Island, Ohio and the Texas Primary. Senator Obama won Vermont. The Texas Caucus results have yet to come in.
Roll up sleaves...stretch...continue...
Of Acceptable Blackness...
When Acceptable Blackness meets reality the result is that 59% of Democratic voters who voted for Senator Clinton say that race was an important factor in Ohio. 40% of Democratic voters who voted for Obama said race was one of several important factors in Ohio.
If you accept the notion of acceptable blackness then Obama wasn't acceptably black enough in Ohio.
Or should that be that Clinton was more acceptably white than Obama was acceptably black?
Or...mayhap there is no such thing as acceptable blackness, we are not living in a post race America and the race card, when played, rarely lands in favor of the person of color.
Of Women Are Never Front-runners...
I never bought the notion that Senator Clinton wasn't a front-runner, but since a certain someone put it out there that gender is a greater burden…sigh…behold these numbers, which I beheld without any surprise. 60% of Democratic voters who voted for Senator Clinton said gender was important. 40% of Democratic voters who voted for Senator Obama said gender was important.
Now catch that knee before you hurt somebody - I'm not declaring a feminist victory based on Ohio's Democratic Primary results. I will say that this looks like a gender-based positive for the woman in the race to me and this is why I'm not a fan of absolute statements.
The Fubardemocratus Unfoldeth...
Senator Clinton’s wins may move the mo but they failed to move the pledged delegate count on the Democratic side where Senator Obama is still in the lead.
But, but, but WAIT!
Did you forget about Dre?
They being the Superdelegates who, in the opinion Senator Clinton expressed on The Today Show/Good Morning America at the same time though allegedly live (wince) this morning, still have their role to play.
Have no doubt; this race will go on…and on, and on, and on. And the first domino of fubardemocratus has fallen! The math, the election map, the spin and the non-stop media orgasm (impressive)...all that shit points to a battle royale in Denver.
Full disclosure - this bitch will be in Denver for the convention to witness the battle royale first hand. ***makes note to pack gas mask and helmet***
Oh, what to do with Florida, where Democrats got punished for the misbehavings of Republicans?
Oh, and what to do with Michigan, where Senator Obama’s name wasn’t on the ballot?
And what oh what to do if you are a Superdelegate who are being asked to use those nifty yet un-democratic super powers to decide the future of the Democratic Party in more ways than one?
Let's see, we know that Greed - Decency = Fubar (G - D = F2).
Now it looks like Dems may be on the way to proving What to Do + Pledged Delegates divided by Superdelegates = fubardemocratus (WtD + PD / SD = F10).
And the whole world is watching…
