Hillary Clinton On Saturday Night Live

by starmuscle
Saturday Night Live jumped in the Hillary Clinton beatdown this weekend. Amy Poehler started the show with her spot-on Hillary Clinton impression. “Hillary” said she’s still in the race because she’s a sore loser, her supporters are racist, and if she gets the nomination, she’ll use the sexist and racist cards against John McCain - because she’s just that ruthless. I think was over the line. Yes Hillary is a sore loser but to call her supporters RACIST is just a little too over the top in my opinion. BUT FUNNY!

Latest NBC Poll: Obama is in Surprisingly Good Shape

by democrattotheend
While his support among white voters has slipped a few points since the last poll, he actually does better among whites against McCain than Clinton, losing the white vote 49-38, as opposed to 53-38 for Clinton. The 11-point deficit among whites might look discouraging, but it’s important to keep in mind that Kerry lost the white vote by 17 points in 2004. Obama is only 3 points below Kerry’s percentage of the white vote (41%), while McCain is 9 points behind Bush’s 58% (the rest are undecided).

Quantitative Analysis - Why Ferraro's Claims are Inaccurate

by democrattotheend
Much has already been said about Geraldine Ferraro’s controversial comments implying that Obama wouldn’t be where he is if he were white (or a woman). The purpose of this post is not to attack or defend her comments, but to test her hypothesis that Clinton has been hampered by her gender while Obama has been helped by his race by looking at the exit poll numbers for people who said that a candidate’s race or gender had any influence on their vote.

L'Encyclopédie de L'Agora: Henry David Thoreau

by alexandre & 1 other
"Si Thoreau est à sa manière un ermite-vagabond, sa démarche apparaît avant tout fondée sur un constat d’ordre social : celui de la servilité d’un genre de vie centré sur le travail et un économisme utilitaire désenchanteur de monde. Gagner sa vie en échinant son existence. Thoreau l’ascète réhabilite quant à lui le principe d’une joie contemplative, liée à un usage poétique de l’espace.

Walden ou la vie dans les bois - Wikisource

L’opinion publique est un faible tyran comparé à nos propres opinions privées. Ce qu’un homme pense de lui-même, voilà ce qui détermine, ou plutôt montre, son destin.
