The Trail Blazers Blog of the Dallas Morning News has this piece as of this morning:
Hillary Clinton and her campaign is pushing for precinct captains for Texas’ 8,000 Democratic polling places. They need to train folks to lead the caucus sessions that will determine more than 60 delegates after the primary voting is over.
In training materials being handed out by the Clinton campaign, it is clear that they want to control those caucus sessions.
The materials say in part, “DO NOT allow the supporter of another candidate to serve in leadership roles.”
It goes on to say, “If our supporters are outnumbered, ask the Temporary Chair if one of our supporters can serves as the Secretary, in the interest of fairness.”
The control of the sign-in sheets and the announcement of the delegates allotted to each candidate are the critical functions of the Chair and Secretary. This is why it is so important that Hillary supporters hold these positions.”
This from Sadbastards:
It’s right out of Stalin’s playbook. “It’s not who votes; it’s who counts the votes.”
And I couldn’t agree more. Clinton’s campaign is looking more and more like it’s a dictatorship movement who’s willing to throw her dissenters in jail. Let’s not forget the fiasco with the Clinton KOA in Clark County, Nevada. As we’ve seen the dirt and slime out of the Bush Administration, Clinton’s actions like this only means we’ll be seeing more Bush Style of politics while she’s in Office.
Why can’t the Clinton Campaign play fair?! Because they’d lose if they didn’t.
Why does Rush Limbaugh say he’ll hold fund-raisers for Hillary? Why is he encouraging people to vote for Clinton tonight? Why is Ann Coulter running around calling herself a “Hillary Girl!”? Why does Rupert Murdoch not only support Hillary, but gives her cash to run her campaign?!
Because Clinton is their patsy, that’s why. It’s the perfect win-win for the GOP. If Hillary Clinton wins the Dem ticket, they create a “Lesser of Two Evils” to the American public. The GOP gets to rally their troops and get McCain in. But, if Hillary wins, they already have her in their pocket anyway.
But if Obama is the Dem – the game’s over with. Out with all of the gunk in Washington DC and in with everything new.
