The 57 state thing is a talking point just like the "whitey" thing (it was actually "why'd he"). The reality of the situation is that there were
54 primaries, which means 57 is still wrong, but nonetheless it is another soundbite taken out of context. The number of contests included
territories such as Guam, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and one more that I forget.
Were you aware that's what he was talking about? Not number of states but number of contests? Probably not, because the GOP is struggling to feed
us bumperstickers and out-of-context soundbites because their guy is really going to have a hard time convincing us to keep the PNAC dream alive.
I shared your undecided sentiment for a while. I have been a fierce independent since Bush the first. I've been voting Libertarian, Green,
Contitutionalist, and even American Taxpayer Party.
This time, though, I cannot bear the thought of McCain continuing the Bush fiasco any longer. I have to do something about it. And I can't let the
right wing crazy media keep brainwashing people without speaking up.
Edit: for the record, I voted as Undeclared in the CA Democratic Primary for Dennis Kucinich (I voted early, before he dropped out).
