Doesn't seem to be much of a story at all, really it seems to be about how Obama called out an opponent on violating party rules. I mean, that's just playing by the rules, what could be contreversial about that? This Palmer character knew the rules going into the game, she should have been more scrupulous about following them, if you give an opponent an opportunity like that in politics you're going to suffer the consequences.

Also, coming up 69 petitions short in a petition drive is just total political amateur hour. I helped run a petition drive for a candidate once, and we threw away tons of signatures ourselves on technicalities just as trivial as the ones mentioned in this article. Like Obama said, if you can't even run a damn petition drive how the hell are you going to run an election campaign? Or for that matter act as a representative? I mean, especially when it comes to candidate selection contests, losers that whine about being mistreated by the people competing against them are just pathetic. If you can't handle the criticism and tactics of the opponent in your own party, how are you going to do against the other party? And it's doubly pathetic when these losers are whining about being called out on their violation of rules that they should have known and abided by.

The Democrats suddenly support strict enforcement of rules.

They didn't seem to be about that in the 2000 election.

But if you cannot punch a goddamned hole on a ballot, how the hell do you expect your retarded ass vote to count for the Presidency?

I think thi sis the first time that I have seen Democrats propose human beings be required to meet some sort of standard of decency.

What next? People ought to get jobs instead of welfare checks?

I hope Obama still feels this way. I wish he would just provide proof of his natural-born citizenship status and get it over with.

The schadenfreude I feel at your anger on the Obama win melts on my tongue like a sweet dinner mint.

That arguement is pretty much baseless you know. Do you honestly believe that he could have hidden being a non-US citizen throughout the entire election without Hilary Clinton or the GOP digging it up? It would have knocked him out of the race and given Hilary (during the primaries) or McCain a clear shot for presidency.

Plus, if it had any substance it would be plastered all over the news.

What? Do you honestly think that a story like that would be hidden? Think of what a juicy scandal that would be: The first African American set to be president and someone who a lot of Americans were looking to for hope and help in the future. Then there's the chance he cheated and somehow hid his history! And he very well might be declared ineligible!

Fox News alone would probably love to report that. Even speculation...

Like Fox News needs any hard evidence to report unfounded accusations. That's the point. If you think it actually needs any substance to air on a 24-hour news network, you don't know 24-hour news networks.

The fact that these networks don't need a story to have substance to report on it doesn't mean at all that a story with substance would fail to be reported on. Really it just seems to indicate the opposite.

But that's the point! They don't even wait for hard evidence. And yet even the birth controversy isn't being reported on, which shows just how idiotic it is. I don't even think the Weekly World News has anything on it and they wrote an article saying that Sarah Palin shot a Bigfoot.

Hey, WWN is a great news source. Not reliable, but great.

Where else can you learn about a man-eating port-a-potty? Or Paris Hilton's alien abduction (they sent her back as she was too annoying).

Their website's still up. There's also this book of their various articles that I got out of a library. Ironically, I checked it out the exact day my English class had a discussion on the Camp genre (WWN is a prime example of camp).
