WACO DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION




Well, it was as confusing as I thought it would be..but it wasn't as bad as it could have been...no fist fights, name calling, or bipping occurred..I had fun and managed to wrangle an alternate position to the Texas Convention in Austin, this coming June..Which only happened because the Clinton delegates only had 2 people that wanted to go..so they by majority of the votes got to be delegates and as we only had 2 that wanted to go from the Obama's Mary Mangrum and I are going...The Clinton delegates really don't like us Obama voters...especially me ...I told them if she lied one more time she would officially be a republican and I might vote for her if she had just come out and said:"Yes, Bill is a cheating bastard, but I love the bastard and want to keep him around as I might run for President some day and he'll come in handy."..so there is no love lost..and especially since the only ones interviewed by the Waco Trib was Violeta Davis and me..and they only quoted me..I made the guy laugh...he liked my Hillary lying and becoming a republican quote..Also the exact quote was "I'm so pissed off after 8 years of Bush, I had to get involved"...then I laughed and said...don't guess that will make the paper will it?..He said 'how about really angry?'...yeah, that's close enough..
So I will be able to go to Austin and I doubt if I will get picked by my group to go to Denver for the National Convention as my last name isn't Czech and I'm not for Clinton...Hopefully the ole cunt will quit by then..but I doubt it..she thinks she's entitled to be president and if lying, cheating and making a deal with the devil will get her there..she's all for it..
No one had to bail me out..I tried to behave myself..sitting next to an 82 year old will do that to you...to quote her:"I'm voting for Obama even if he is black.".....ahh, old ladies ..gotta love 'em..
I did jump in and help with the signing in of delegates..they had it set up where one person would do each precinct which was giving them a delegate or alternate badge to hang around your neck, the person had to put in the precinct number and your name(checking your voting card or driving liscense) and then you signed in next to your name, person you wanted for president and your signiture..They had people 20 deep waiting in front of the desks, in the hall, down the hall, and out the fucking building nearly..it was a mess...So I asked this lady if she would like me to fill in the delegates card and get them ready for her to sign in ..she said yup..so I sat there for about 45 minutes and it just happened to be 65-75 which is the West guys as we are 67..so I got to make fun of all their hard to spell names and one guy who had I thought just lost his sense of humor by the wait, actually cracked a smile when I said 'hey grumpy, where are the other dwarfs?'..his wife said...that's as close to a smile as he's come in 35 years of marriage...(The Goddess works in mysterious ways..)
I was supposed to be at work at 2pm...I didn't get back till 4:30, would have been back at 4:15 but I got a speeding ticket...right in fucking front of work..I wanted to be pissed but I found it too funny..I was going 49 in a 30.
told him too bad you didn't nab me on I-35 I was doing 85...He didn't think I was near as funny as the Trib reporter..I told him I was trying to get back so my boss could go pee, as he had been the only one in the store all day..He didn't care, the little prick..he's the same little asshole about 4 years or so ago that wanted to breathalize me at 3am in the morning when I was out driving around looking for Babe the great dane...I said oh, please yes, I haven't had anything to drink in over 10 years...I'd love for you to explain THAT to Judge Pareya...He's one of those Barney Fife's...about 5' 2" and has a badge..so he thinks he's fucking John Wayne..Only in West...Makes me miss Tommy Dulock..the old deputy..he would have given me a lecture, asked for an Obama sticker and bought me a Dr. Pepper the next time he saw me.
My boss is so cool...he said I shouldn't have raced back, he was fine and what I was doing was more important than working at Family Dollar, and is going to pay 1/2 of my defensive driving fee...What a sweety..
Well, have to get ready to go to work..I'm so excited..I get wed. and Thurs.off ...2 days off in a row...yeah, I can do laundry, clean house, pay bills, plant my garden and have a nervous break down...
fuckme till I vote republican..

I wish newspapers could quote exactly what you say. I wonder what would happen to them if they did, probably increase circulation by ten.

Good luck in representing the will of the people, but I think Hillary is going to fight to the end as her nose grows as long as Bill's.

ArrrHahahahaha.

Oh fuck. If only you knew how much I needed those cackles.

Thanks JS!

Anne Johnson said...

Are there any more positions open at your store?

Babs said...

You made the Waco paper!! If you go to Austin, I'm sure you'll make some paper there too or even national news soon.
Letterman, the Waco paper, what's next???
Go bake some sugar-free cupcakes for CB and put on your pooh shirt. Though I haven't heard a peep from CB today, yet. She's probably stalking your place waiting for you to get home from work.

buddha_girl said...

You said "cunt." Gotta love it.

Hate that short idiot boy with the badge. Wish I could take away the ticket AND let Buddha punch him in (most likely) small family jewels. That would teach him.

Here's to some finger-crossing for Austin!

kali:have to learn to set your goals higher than that..ha
jan:yeah, i knew the minute i said pissed off, he wouldnt print it..but he laughed his ass off when i said if hillary lied one more time she'd officaially be a republican..nobody reads the waco paper anyhow..don't know what the big deal was...it's all them waco baptists..
apos:well, if i made you laugh then my day is complete..how ya been?
anne:yup...we need at least 2 more people..comeon down...

babs:you could go with me to austin..we could stay with lane and brewster, and you could sit out on the dock all day long and look at the hawks soaring and the rich yuppies driving their boats up and down the lake..

Big Tex said...

Wow, that's pretty cool that you got a write-up in the paper, and get to be an alternate on top of that. Maybe you'll get to be a full-fledged delegate if one of those Clintonites has an (ahem) unfortunate accident. :-)

As for myself, after enduring all of that nonsense yesterday I think I've had my fill of the whole delegate thing. I'll still go to the precinct caucuses if the nomination hasn't been decided already and I still have a horse in the race, but I just don't see myself wanting to sit through another district convention with all of the resolutions about medicinal marijuana, creating a department of peace, etc. By the time it was over, I wanted to claw my own eyes out! Oh well, it was worth it this time around to get Obama over the top. He got a majority of our state delegates, something like 55-35, and I think he got a net gain of 9 national delegates altogether from Texas.

Elizabeth said...

yes, that's the problem with H.C. - she's always trying to figure out what she should say, rather than trying to figure out what she believes and saying that. I love that you made it to the paper! And thanks, as ever, for the smiles I get from reading you. Need 'em these days, but I'm hanging in there....

old enough to moan said...

I haven’t appeared in the paper since I was about nine and entered a competition for school where I said I wished to ‘jump off haystacks in Ireland’, all pretty lame compared to your escapades. If there is every a high enough bale of hay around Granny, and if you get the chance, jump on Hillary’s head, that would be sure to make the BBC news.
I could then tell folk that I am acquainted with the Bale-jumping-Hillary-head-hopping-yellowdog. [Now there is a headline!] Nice one Granny.

Nit Wit said...

The next thing you know you'll be invited onto one of those political news shows as an expert. Maybe next election they will make you a super delegate. I can't believe Barney Fife had the guts to even pull you over. He must not be aware of who you are.
It sounds like your getting your boss trained right.
Getting you to vote Republican would take a hell of a lot of fucking.

texlahoma said...

All right YDG's gettin famous!
I'm sure once Barney's higher ups realize who he ticketed, it will be "taken care of."
I think they should start calling Hillary "Sniper Fire".

Gadfly said...

I always said there's two kinds of asshole cops: The ones beat kids up in high school and the ones who got beat up.

That cop had his lunch money taken on a daily basis and had a number of "swirlies" in the toilet on bad days.

Now he's going to take it all out on the rest of us.

rebecca said...

Ohmigawd, I wish you could have gone with me to my in-law's house! At least someone would have been on my side. All I heard about the whole time was how if Obama wins, all the blacks will have all the whites on leashes and they'll get revenge for slavery.

I don't know how I bit my tongue for that long without it falling off. (If I didn't have to live as part of this family and if I didn't value peace I probably would have gone off like a bottle rocket!!!!) Good times.

Scottish Toodler said...

Jackiesue I wish I had been there to see you in action. Now that I know you are working on the Dem's I feel certain Obama will win!

Debra Kay said...

I do love Waco! It has its own vibe-maybe it stands like a guardian between Austin and DFW...LOL.

You are so full of piss and vinegar, I want to be more like you!

yellowdog granny said...

oetm:I think i would enjoy that..jumping on her head from a bale of hay...but would like to bip her better..ha..
nitwit:we have a whole new sting of cops now that have no clue who i am...the chief of police is new also..the only constant is the judge..who i do know..but getting to him takes an act of congress...
yeah, alot of fucking...i could go for that...maybe..ha
tex:i think they should just call her 'pinocchico 2'...
gaddy:yup..and the little fuckers name is michael irvin..hahahahahahah..I call him barney fife..or dudley do right..
rebecca:ohmy ...life is too short to keep peace...ha..i wasn't brought up to keep my mouth shut..family peace would mean they would have to keep their mouth shut around me..when people start talking politics my son will groan and say 'oh jesus, dont get her started.'...
scottish:oh,, i can only hope..
rox:i think you already are..

That Rude Girl said...

That is awesome you're going to Austin!!

And I love your newspaper quote..good for you.

As for the lady who said she's going to vote for Obama, "even though he's black", I'm just glad she's voting for him and not McCain!

And I'm with you...Hillary should QUIT. Why is she doing this? Yes, she may be more qualified and a better candidate than Obama but she cannot win against McCain and we DO NOT WANT that man in office! He'll be worse than Bush/Cheney combined! War, war and more war. He's already said he knows nothing about the economy. Sorry, I just get riled up.

John Edwards for AG!

How does a candidate win the popular vote in Texas and come away with fewer delegates then her competition?

tsduff said...

I loved seeing you in the paper - way to go!

Your Granddaughters (from post below) sound like spoiling is the best thing for them :) I spoil my grandson too - that's what grannys are for.

Juanuchis said...

I'd never get in my hometown paper. I have already taken it's owner/editor to task and he was stupid enough to publish my letter AND his rebuttal, which made him look a complete fool.

But there's no love lost. I doubt he's publish anything I said again, and I'm relatively certain he wouldn't publish my father's obit, when it comes to that.

Huzzahs on your convention though! Loved the Chillary quote. :) Wish I could get more politically active, but can't.

Juanuchis said...

AGGGH!!! Not "it's", "its". I hate that mistake!!

Mea culpa.

yellowdog granny said...

rudegirl:she wont' give up till they drag her screaming off the stage and out of the spot light..
anonymous:because we have the texas 2-step...we vote..we caucas and figure out the delegates and vote again...it's only donein texas...
janis:yah, the waco paper is something i never read and if i hadn't been in the paper..i wouldn't even read it...but my local paper of west news..that's a diffenent story..
