    I can't help but feel that I want to kick a majority of the population of California in the stones.

    I just read a post on suicidegirls, a bit of fiction about the next election, whereas John McCain kicks Obama's ass.

    I threw up in my mouth a little.

    I officially now hate my damn state.

    I cannot believe that Clinton won CA. I CAN'T!

    Can a killer quake drop us into the damn ocean now? Please?

    Yeah, FTR'll do that. McCain/Huckabee IS the GOP ticket (not verified, just my say-so). And unless Obama winds up on our ticket I'd say that big red white and blue cock George Carlin invoked is not far from seriously disrupting all of our bowels (set to... "Shat into unconciousness").
    TheDaily Kos link is much more optimistic than this Fear The Reaper business (Thanks Loki). I'd say there's still hope at the end of the tunnel for us democratic supporters, but it's certainly more faint the wider Hillary's yellow smile stretches. I disagree with FTR in that I think Obama can take McCain/ Huckabee. It'll be a big deal who Barack's running mate is, too. But the fact is we've still got over half a year until any of us will know for certain. Just make sure if your state hasn't voted yet, that you go support Obama. Because I said so.

    And don't worry, most of the Californian population hasn't too long to live anyway (Remember that whole global warming/ sea level rise thing?). Those coastal cities are as good as sunk. My condolences.

    @Ren

    That particular majority has no stones. And I'm not even talking "gender."

    And yeah, FTR is going to be found dead at his workdesk from an exploded head one day. Mark my words.

    I voted Obama, for some reason I assumed the majority of my state would too. But I never got my absentee ballot and I had to do a provisional vote instead, so it technically hasn't been counted.

    I'm really hoping for an Obama/Richardson ticket. Bill needs to have a shave first, though.

    As of this writing, Hillary has just taken the lead in delegates, bridging this morning's gap of twenty some odd delegates and pulling ahead by five. This is so insanely close a race that I fear that we're going to have a long war between these two candidates and that the republicans will be able to put together a untied front long before the democrats can make up their minds... The sad thing here being that if things play long for the democratic party, it will increase the likelihood of them once again miraculously snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

    Man, I really should move to Sweden or something... Their main concern always seems to be "How can we possibly get any cooler?"

    I like FTR- He makes me feel sick of living in so vile a place as Earth. It's like reading a harsh review for a film you want to like, but know sucks; only that movie is real life with FTR. An important gadfly to piss off the rhinos.
    And yes, we should all move to Sweden, but then who's going to fix this country? The cousin-fuckers who change the constitution to reflect god's will (which they channel/ transcend)?
    Didn't Obama say America needs us, and our time is now, and we're the change we've been waiting for etc.? That said, I'll admit to hating it here.

    So far, I'd say there's not too much optimism to be had to get around Vice President Mike Huckabee come November; though many of the states yet to vote are in the south... and likely Obama prone.

    Does anyone have any good links for voter turnout? I'd like to look at the numbers, but don't want to put them together myself. :D

    @LokiZero - Not sure about anything with turnout percentages, but there's the CNN Super Tuesday page for a start? I did see that NJ had something like a 35% turnout of eligible voters.

    On the topic of running mates:

    Huckabee/McCain seems like a certainty to me. John McCain's frontrunner status has raised his position on abortion (pro-life) to national attention. NARAL and NOW have press releases on him weekly. In the past McCain was able to stay quiet on the issue (but he never denied being pro-life), and that would have been a showstopper for holy-roller Huckabee.

    Obama/Richardson would be a strong ticket, but I keep thinking the Democrats are going to have to tap someone with heavy military brass on his chest. Wesley Clark, perhaps. Richardson has wonderful experience, but he's not a war hero per se. Putting a military man on the ticket takes an awful lot of wind out of McCain's war hero status. I love Richardson though. I think he can still counter McCain's victory rhetoric with his policy wonk pedigree.

    And my only note on Tuesday: What a fraud! Clinton won states she can't win in the general (excepting California). The electoral map is going to look identical to John Kerry's in 2004. A viciously strong base in the northeast and zero penetration in the south. The Democrats are voting to lose in November essentially, an unfathomable thought.

    Next week: I'm a registered Republican in Maryland. We vote next Tuesday, and I feel... vestigial. Knowing what I know about our state, I have NO IDEA who will win the Democratic ticket here. We're a stunningly liberal state, but we don't have that reputation, perhaps because of geographical association with the Old South.

    I'm expecting Obama to stomp in Virginia.

    Every website I check gives radically different delegate counts (anything from 700 to 900 delegates for Obama) and doesn't make it clear what's actual results and what's exit poll projections (or a mix of the two).

    Maybe I'm just being dense, but what sites are people checking?
