Rogue Fl Democrats' illegal election



100_0275_2 Proving yet again that nobody does bizarre elections like 100_0274 Florida, thousands of loyal Democrats turned out for a rogue election Saturday where the votes may not count and the winners may not win. The Buzz is big turnout at all the delegate caucus sites, despite the fact the DNC considers these bogus elections and frontrunner Barack Obama won't recognize Saturday's results either.

The Florida GOP is having fun with it too: "You may be asking why anyone would waste his or her Saturday voting for delegates who will play absolutely zero role in the Democrat nominating convention. But a better question is this: who wouldn’t want to be a Democrat Delegate? You’ll get out of the Florida heat and humidity and get to spend a few days in lovely Denver, Colorado. You won’t even have to worry about attending the convention – there is no seat for you inside anyway.   But that is just as well – you’ll be out in the fresh air, rather than the smoke filled rooms where party bosses will choose the nominee.  " STORY HERE.
