And Now, a Live Parrot for Obama

By Garance Franke-Ruta in The Trail:

It's another morning (afternoon?) after, and as the superdelegates continue their steady march toward Barack Obama, online, a video that combines virtually every element necessary to create a YouTube hit is starting to go viral around the web. It's no "An Engineers Guide to Cats" or "Skateboarding Dog", but it still contains some of the essential ingredients of YouTube videos that have come to define the medium.

Cute animal? Check.
Doing a funny trick? Check.
Involving politics? Check.
And supporting Barack Obama? Also check.

Most importantly, a week after Hillary Clinton's campaign started to be compared to the legendary Monty Python skit involving a dead parrot, it features a living, breathing pro-Obama one.

Without further ado, then, "Smokey says Yes, We Can!"

African grays have the average intelligence of a 5-yr old human, which means they are smarter than 95% of folks from Applalachia!

As cute as the Parrot is, I'm afraid this is an empty and fluffy as all of Obama's campaign has been and those of us whom are not so gullible can see right through the Obama hype.

If you want experience and a candidate that can win in Nov. 2008 VOTE HILLARY CLINTON.

************Your attitude towards your fellow Democrats in Appalachia is part of the reason your Messiah will not win the nomination or the Presidency. Just knowing that snotty little kids with no life experience and blacks voting as racists support Obama is enough of a reason to concerned about who Obama is and what he stands for.

I suppose I should not have been, but I was saddened -- pissed -- to learn that all three candidates for the U.S. presidency are millionaires. I guess that's the real world of U.S. politics. Too bad!

Clinton has taken Kentucky and Obama is right there in Oregon.
The Democratic race for nomination is still very much alive - and most likely to be decided by superdelegates - as CNN points out clearly

http://edition.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/05/20/primary.wrap/index.html

If you're tired of waiting around for those super delegates to make a decision already, go to LobbyDelegates.com and push them to support Clinton or Obama

If you haven't done so yet, please write a message to each of your state's superdelegates at http://www.lobbydelegates.com

Obama Supporters:

Sending a note to current Obama supporters lets them know it's appreciated, sending a note to current Clinton supporters can hopefully sway them to change their vote to Obama, and sending a note to the uncommitted folks will hopefully sway them to vote for Obama. It's that easy...

Clinton Supporters too .... !

It takes a moment, but what's a few minutes now worth to get Clinton in office?! Those are really worth !
