The Mother Of All Straw Polls

Obama dismissed yesterday’s Florida Dem Primary as a “beauty contest.” Well, then I guess Hillary is today’s Beauty Queen. You just can’t dismiss 856,000 battleground state Dems that voted for Hillary. Nobody campaigned there yet a mil and a half Dems showed up to have their say. You gotta figure the Hillary people are feeling good this morning and the Obama folks are a little nervous. It looks like John Edwards got the message.

I guess the Clinton haters are going to have to wait awhile before they can attend the second burial of Hillary Clinton.

Caroline Kennedy and Teddy Kennedy endorsed Obama. CEWDEM sent out the LA Times Op-Ed where Bobby Kennedy’s kids endorsed Hillary. The Op-Ed is also in today’s Chron. I’ll bet there will be a lively discussion in Hyannisport this Easter.

From yesterday’s Chron: Latinos make up 22.8% of California voters. Latinos make up 24.6% of Lone Star State voters. The Latino percentages will be a lot higher in the upcoming Dem Party primaries. Si Se Puede!

If you feel like dropping some dough on the Carol Alvarado Campaign, stop by the Grotto on Westheimer and Loop 610 today right after work. H-Town’s Mayor will be there along with Clyde “The Glide” Drexler and Tilman Fertitta. Check it out.

I was watching the H-Town City Council meeting on the tube yesterday. A citizen spoke before council and urged them to outlaw cell phone yakking while driving through a school zone. Hey, I like that!

With a girlfriend named Gisele who definitely doesn’t need touching up, you have to root for Pats QB Tom Brady this Sunday.

One of the few things I like about Rudy G is his love of baseball. He’s a diehard Yankee fan. Now that he’s out of the race I think I’ll call him and invite him to go to The Yard with me June 13 – 15 when the Yankees are in town. We can have us some St. Arnold’s and maybe talk a little politics. I’ll probably ask him how he can spend kazillions of buckos for one freaking delegate while getting his arse kicked all over the U.S. of A.
