    DNC wants Michigan to hold new caucus

    Bullshit!!! Fucking damn bullshit!!! You can read the whole story HERE. Michigan, in no small part with the help of Carl Levin, decided to hold it's primary early, against DNC rules. The penalty for this if you're not aware, is that Michigan was stripped of it's Democrat delegates. They went ahead knowing this, the DNC stripped their delegates, now the DNC wants a "mulligan"....a "do over". This is not kindergarten damnit.

    I can see where the DNC is a pinch here. On one hand, Clinton and Obama are essentially in a dead heat. Clinton has "won" both Michigan and Florida. Both states were stripped of their delegates for holding early primaries.

    If the DNC recinds it's position...they hand Clinton a bunch of delegates where proper campaigning was not held...and the Obama team will rightfully cry foul. If they hold fast, Michigan and Florida, both delegate rich states, will not have a say in swinging a tight race. No matter how you slice it, bad blood. Bad blood Michigan and Florida chose......tough shit. What does the DNC propose? Lets have a caucus....essentially a revote. For the record, I don't think Clinton is all that keen on a revote either, if against Obama when he actually campaigns..:)

    While I won't go into the details of the difference between a caucus vs. a primary, I'd like to point one GLARING detail. Primaries are paid for by the state out of state TAX DOLLARS. Is the DNC prepared to reimburse our fair state for the tax dollars our citizens were charged? Will the DNC then pay out of pocket for the caucus and reimburse our fair state for the extra security and cost of dealing with a new wave of campaigning?

    I'll be back.......right now I have to go mutter and piss on something......grrrrrrrrrrrr

    That's just silly.

    Why don't they just declare the delegates from Michigan and Florida "free" delegates. Then the delegates can declare which candidate they are supporting? There, done. No extra costs involved.

    Jay...Too simple to work buddy. Besides, free delegates will prompt somebody to cry bad form. Without a revote, to establish the delegates...it's just asking for rumours and innuendo..:0

    They Michigan Dem Party has said if caucuses are held they will be paid for from party funds. And they would surely argue that since there was going to be a Republican primary anyway there really was very little extra cost to the Dems also having a primary on the same day.

    All so asinine and so easily avoided. What did Michigan's dumbass early primary get for either party? Romney won Michigan's Republican delegates, but he's out now. Clinton got most of the Dem delegates, "undeclared" did okay too, but they may never be seated. All paid for with tax dollars, which everyone knows we just have extra and extra of laying around!
