Here They Come!

If you are a fan of old movies, or merely of an age where you grew up watching a lot of matinées, you recognize the pedigree of the post title.

In every movie featuring hordes of hostile aliens/barbarians/tribesmen, there comes a moment where some helpful defender peers over the barricade at the charging host and shouts "Here they come!" for the benefit of any cast member who may have stepped into the outhouse, or for those in the audience who may have become distracted by their date.

I have previously opined here and here that the Black Democrat demographic will rebel at any move on the part of the SUPER Delegates to cross the popular vote results of the Democrat Primary process. Or what is perceived to be the "popular" vote; under DNC rules as they exist right now, only God and Stephen Hawking have a clue what the true value of that quantity is.

I love it when a plan comes together; to celebrate, I am linking to Talk Left where the opposition muses possible action in response to exactly such a move by the SUPER Delegates. (There is a link to KoS on that page. I don't link to those people.)

Big Tent Democrat writes:

"Here Markos and I agree. If Obama is the pledged delegate leader and the popular vote leader (as me, Kos and a cast of a thousand bloggers, NBC, etc, expect), then any action by the super delegates to subvert such a result would be outrageous and wrong, imo of course (his italics in original)."

The real meat is in the comments. I won't quote any of them, you need to read for yourself. It's an exquisite study in what happens when your politics are ruled by identity and expediency. There are some assumptions repeatedly put into play that ... make me giggle. Suffice it to say there are a lot of very unhappy campers, and their default tactic is to throw a tantrum and break stuff when they don't get their way.

It ain't pretty, but then neither is sausage making and we need both breakfast and a government, so there you go. I'm glad I don't live in Denver.

Have a great day! Oh, and here they come!
