WV primary Blog... AKA: Mountain Momma
Author: Raine    Date: 05/13/2008 23:00:21

Almost heaven, West Virginia,
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.
Life is old there, older than the trees,
Younger than the mountains, growin' like a breeze.
Country Roads, take me home,
To the place I belong:
West Virginia, mountain momma,
Take me home, country roads.

All my mem'ries, gather 'round her,
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water.
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky,
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye.


Country Roads, take me home,
To the place I belong:
West Virginia, mountain momma,
Take me home, country roads.

I hear her voice, in the mornin' hours she calls me,
The radio reminds me of my home far away.
And drivin' down the road,
I get a feelin' that I should have been home yesterday,
Yesterday.

Country Roads, take me home,
To the place I belong:
West Virginia, mountain momma,
Take me home, country roads.

Take me home, country roads.
Take me home, down country roads.


Tonite, we all expect Hillary Clinton to win the WV Primary. Some say it will be a blowout. I dunno.

There are a few other things to watch tonite, particularly Mississippi and Nebraska From a DCCC email:
After losing the last two competitive special elections for Republican seats (IL-14 and LA-06), the NRCC and its conservative allies have gone all out to try to hold MS-01. Republicans have had to spend nearly 20 percent of their cash on hand on a reliably Republican district. Democrats have spent only 4 percent of our cash on hand. The conservative group Freedom’s Watch spent at least $460,000. In total, Republicans have spent at least $1.7 million on MS-01.

Vice President Dick Cheney, Governor Haley Barbour, former Governor Mike Huckabee, Senator Thad Cochran, former Senator Trent Lott, and Senator Roger Wicker have all campaigned on Republican Greg Davis’ behalf in what Politico calls, “one of the safest Republican areas in the nation.” Additionally, President Bush, Laura Bush, and Senator McCain recorded automated calls that were sent to voters throughout the district.


There is also a race in Nebraska... They (the Dems) are choosing a candidate to replace the retiring Chuck Hagel...

So, with that... I say...

:usa: VIGILANCE :usa:

Well according to Terry McCauliffe as WV goes goes, so goes the nation.



Heya Scoop!!!

McCauliffe is a slick speaker, i'll give him that. But he is a true fertilizer salesman.

Comment by Random on 05/13/2008 23:11:34
McCauliffe: Supers are waiting to see if sumtin to happen to Barack.



Well...If that isn't veiled threat...what is?

Comment by Scoopster on 05/13/2008 23:13:17
I like how the ticker on the bottom lays out the miniscule delegate gain Obama needs to clinch the nomination while McAulliffe sits there and spews bullshit.



It's like you're seeing the fact and the liar facing off LIVE.

They must use exit polls if they can count a win before any vote is actually counted.

Ok, may I say that I am glad that Senator Clinton won WV...



But seriously, it is WV.... How many people are registered Dems in that state?



Anyone have a line on Mississippi and Nebraska?

Oh yeah - if we want to be keeping with the Hillary theme, we change the drinking rules every time it suits our fancy.



Don't have Crown Royal? - change the rule to meet the booze you've got!

Heavily White Older and poorer electorate...



That is how they are describing WV.



I think that says it all. Now can someone please tell me again that the DEMOCRATIC party is all about BIG tent?



We love everyone, right? The Clinton campaign decided to act like the entire party is WV.



THAT I resent.
