All good things must come to an end ...

... and that rang true on Tuesday night when Sen. Barack Obama's string of state primary victories came to a screeching halt. Sen. Hillary Clinton won three out of four primary elections on what broadcasters are calling "Super Tuesday II."
Obama started the night off strong by winning Vermont but his victory grew stale as the results came in and we learned that Clinton had not only won Rhode Island but she picked up the two major states of Ohio and Texas.
Confusingly, Texas also held a caucus last night and the results are still not in. The last time I checked, Obama was winning the caucus 52 percent to Clinton's 48. Under ordinary circumstances, I might be happy about that but it seems to me that people don't mind voting for Obama when they are in a group but as soon as they close the curtain and it's just them and the ballot, they vote for Clinton. What's up with that?
Are they voting for Barack when they get into groups so that they don't seem racist or what? I mean it is a big boy game and everything, but I would think that the caucus and the votes would match. I could be wrong, but if I am please get me right.
Like every other setback in life, there is a bright side to all of this. Obama is still leading by nearly 100 pledged delegates. I was really hoping he'd go into Tuesday and win all of the primaries and pull further away from Clinton and lock up the nomination. But I guess we can't all have what we want.
At any rate, I guess congrats are in order for Satan Jr., better known as Sen. John McCain. OK, OK, maybe I shouldn't call him Satan, but the dude looks evil. Seriously folks, the man frightens me through the TV. He doesn't open his mouth when he talks and he always has that, "I eat children" smile on his face. I'm concerned.
But hey, we have another bright side. McCain picked up a pair of endorsements from Former and current Pres. Bush. I don't know about you but I am extremely cautious of anything endorsed by a Bush. If they came out now to say that Mr. Goodbars are the best candy bars in the world, I'd stop eating them.There's not a single thing that a Bush has done for me that I would consider good so excuse me if I have a hard time trusting anything that comes out of their mouths. Now if they were to say, "Dub-ya's an idiot and we stole the first election," then I'd probably come around. But until then, anything they say can and will be held against them.

LMBAO!!!!!! You did not call McCain Satan Jr. HAAAAAAAA! He might be as old as Satan....

I was disappointed on Tuesday. BUT, Obama is still ahead. He may win the caucus in Texas. He looks good for Wyoming and Mississippi. And he's still won the most pledge delegates and is ahead by 600,000 votes in the popular vote. Plus he raised 55 million last month (I'm proud to be in that number!). So I feel good--I hate any "shift" in momentum though.

Oh, on the caucus thing--I think people don't want to appear racist in public. But also, I think Obama's supporters are more avid--and his campaign does a better job of getting them to attend the caucuses.
