Of Root Canal, “Delegate Drift” and Tuesday, May 6

Well, I’m on heavy antibiotics until I go for a root canal procedure on Tuesday afternoon. I unwittingly delivered the final insult when I took off my nightguard at 5 AM and neglected to put it back in my mouth. By the time a re-awoke at 6:30, the teeth-grinding damage was done, for once and for all. The swelling started and off to the dentist I went for the bad news.

Which reminds me of the primary season. Is Obama facing root canal in the upcoming primaries?

Every time he says something inane or insulting to half the population or loses a primary, the poobahs come out to ENDORSE him to try to divert attention from the damage he’s caused. For awhile it works, but then something else comes up. The nightguard is left off for awhile and OUCH…more damage is done.

Now we are waiting for Indiana and North Carolina. I happened across FOX last night and caught Fred Barnes and Mort Kondracke sounding very MSM. Oh, Obama would probably win the nomination…Hillary must win Indiana BIG and lose NC SMALL and MAYBE that will stop the “delegrate drift” toward Obama; of course, if she wins BOTH, well, that MIGHT shake things up and freeze the movement of delegates.

Lately, “drifting delegates” seem to be mystically tied to saving Obama’s butt. Clinton has picked up some, too, but you don’t hear about them much. Maybe it’s a good thing, because poor Gov. Mike Easley in NC, a high-profiler if there ever was one at this particular moment, endorsed Clinton and was booed at the JJ Dinner a couple of nights ago. Obama supporters again showed their lack of class or is it just a large display of immaturity?

FOX has been cautiously praised for their campaign coverage lately because it seems “fairer and more balanced” than other media outlets…But Kondracke and Barnes pulled the same old stuff during their discussion, notably when they talked about Joe Edward, former DNC Chair, and even showed a clip of his statement in which he switched to Obama. Did they mention the long list of former DNC Chairs who endorsed Clinton? Nope, they didn’t. I will give them credit, however, for showing a picture of Andrew with his glasses on, in which he looks a great deal like Mr. Limpet. And how appropriate THAT image is!!

Well, it must be fate that root canal is scheduled for the same day as the IN and NC primaries…nothing like cramming in all the suffering into one big package! On the other hand, if I’m drugged with painkillers, maybe I can get through election night with relative ease…
