The Chickens Have Come Home to Roost, Senator Obama

It's May 12, 2008. The writing is - and has been, for months now - on the wall. Superdelegate-nominee Barack Obama and his pack of media elites are headed to a showdown with the Republican (popular vote) nominee, John McCain. The problem on the Superdelegate side is that Hillary Clinton either can't read, or steadfastly refuses to read, the writing on the wall.

For months, the Superdelegate Party built up Hillary Clinton as the presumptive nominee, propping her up as the "most electable" candidate out there. Then the Superdelegate Party fell out of love with Hillary, and started a dalliance with Obama that blossomed into full-fledged love and lust. (Sidebar: Poor Hillary was publicly scorned and shamed yet again. Once again, she's refused to kowtow to public demands - "leave that cheating husband of yours, for the sake of Chelsea and yourself!" turned into "drop out of the race for the sake of all Superdelegates!". At least she's consistent.)

To quote Obama's "former" pastor, the chickens have come home to roost.

Hillary's perceived support from within the establishment continues to give her hope that she can somehow swipe the election from the Superdelegate powers-that-be. She's refusing to see the facts that the establishment has turned its back on her. And yet, as establishment spent so much time building her up as "the best candidate to beat back the Republicans", she truly believes it's best that she continues on. She drank the kool-aid, fellas; you forgot to send her the serum that will break the kool-aid's hold on her!

Let's address this issue for the final time. Hillary, it's been nice knowing you, but your time is done. Your run is over. The time has come for the final throwdown. The country needs you to step down quickly, so we can all focus on what's really important here:
  • Populace-sanctioned candidate versus Superdelegate-sanctioned candidate.
  • Experience versus youth.
  • 'Security through Strength' versus 'Peace through Appeasement'.
  • A candidate that stands up to questioning versus a candidate that is offended by questioning.
McCain vs Obama. Bring it on.
