Regardless of Tuesday’s outcome [in Arkansas], the National Democratic Party seem determined to make sure that embarrassments in Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and West Virginia do not materialize as any dissenting delegate votes when the presidential roll is called in Charlotte, N.C. in September.
The short version in this case is that Democrat John Wolfe is poised to do well enough in next week’s Arkansas primary to theoretically get delegates. The thing is, he won’t – the Democratic party has already announced that he’s ineligible to get any, because he’s not Barack Obama. Oh, I’m sure that there’s an ostensible excuse being offered, but why pretend that it matters? It doesn’t for the Democrats, after all.
You have to wonder what the heck they’re afraid of. Besides the revelation that Mr. President Magic Space Unicorn Lightbringer isn’t as popular as his press agents made him out to be, of course.
PS: Hey, thanks for the Arkansas state legislature, Democrats! We’ll add it to the pile of them you’ve already given us.
