Big Dan's Big News May 21, 2008


Obama wins OR, Clinton triumphs in KY

Obama Nearing 3 Million Donations, Raises $31 Million In April

Since much ink has been spent on Sen. Barack Obama's troubles with the white work class vote - "[it has been] painted as a fatal flaw in his campaign," as Keith Olberman noted - it is important to note that the Senator had big time success among that very constituency in Oregon's primary on Tuesday.

White voters - the only ones in the exit polls because the state is so homogeneous - went to the Senator in overwhelming numbers. In fact, every age group, except those older than 60, preferred Obama to Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Got that? That "whites" bullshit was just...bullshit!!! "Older than 60" whites preferred Hillary, and they're the ones most disenfranchized by the GOP push for photo-id for voting! It's all backfiring on them! Because, that means the "older than 60" would vote for McCain! So, keep pushing that photo-id law, Republicans! It's disenfranchizing McCain voters!

Does Oregon Put Obama's White Working Class Problem To Rest?

Republican Party hasn't had a BLACK Senator, Congressman, or Governor in SIX YEARS!

"Let me be clear, privatizing Social Security was a bad idea when George W. Bush proposed it, it's a bad idea today," Obama said. "That's why I stood up against this plan in the Senate and that's why I won't stand for it as president."

Yeow!!! Hillary: Karl Rove analysis supports me as strongest candidate


Sen. Kennedy has malignant brain tumor

Senator Byrd sobs over news of Ted Kennedy:


Barbara Harvey climbs into the back of her small Honda sport utility vehicle and snuggles with her two golden retrievers, her head nestled on a pillow propped against the driver's seat. Californian Barbara Harvey says she is forced to sleep in her car with her dogs after losing her job earlier this year. A former loan processor, the 67-year-old mother of three grown children said she never thought she'd spend her golden years sleeping in her car in a parking lot. "This is my bed, my dogs," she said. "This is my life in this car right now."

A gravely ill woman at risk of being removed from the country for lack of adequate insurance coverage awoke from a coma Tuesday.
