"Buoyed by the support of enthusiastic workers in the city’s big casinos, Hillary Clinton defeated Senator Bernie Sanders in the Nevada caucuses on Saturday..."

"... thwarting his momentum and proving to an anxious Democratic Party that she maintains strong support among minority voters that she can carry to a general election," the NYT reports.
At a caucus at the famed Caesar’s Palace, blackjack dealers, pit bosses, cooks and housekeepers excitedly declared their support for the former secretary of state. “She’ll change immigration. She’ll change the economy. She’ll change todo!” said Dora Gonzalez, 54, a casino porter at the Bellagio, using the Spanish word for everything.

“And she’s a mujer!” added her friend Elba Pinera, 51, and originally from Honduras, using the Spanish word for woman....

And Mrs. Clinton, who is typically a reserved presence on the trail, seemed to embrace the quirkiness of campaigning in Las Vegas... even receiving the endorsement of 500 sex workers, mostly from Carson City brothels, who formed the “Hookers 4 Hillary” group.
A mujer's gotta do what a mujer's gotta do.

It would have been fun to see Bernie knock her off again, but while she might be relieved at the result, but she can't be happy about it. Nevada was supposed to be a cakewalk, Hillary was supposed to be campaigning in Florida days ago. But she wasn't because she hadn't locked down Nevada.

Sad news.

Hookers 4 Hillary. A special interest group. What's in it for them?

If Hillary wins, we all get screwed.

Whores For Hillary! Catchy.

Titus said...

74% of SC pube voters are born again evangelicals-fucking horrifying state.

I couldn't imagine being a fag in SC.

I feel bad for SC fags or any fags living in the bible belt-must be hell.

The mayor of my city is a black dyke.

tits.

Oso Negro said...

Skanks for a skank!

wendybar said...

What a shame, that a liar like Hillary is getting ANY votes!!

Bob Boyd said...

I read Hookers for Hillary will give 30 extra minutes to Clinton voters.

Don't know what Tramps 4 Trump or Floozies 4 Cruz are doing.

Drago said...

Hillary won the Nevada caucuses in 2008 over obambi by about 6 points. How did that eventually work out for her?

Chuck said...

Little wonder, then, why the courting of an endorsement from the SEIU was such a big deal for Hillary. And then, why Hillary and other aspirational Democrats would do absolutely anything that the union asked of them.

Note well, as we approach the Michigan primary and a revisiting of the Flint water "crisis"; the Democrats are desperately working to deflect attention from a small handful of SEIU-member
middle managers in the MDEQ whose malfeasances were so manifest based on the records, that they were suspended without pay pending a civil service hearing. That level of sanctioning only happens when the proof is the equivalent of a smoking gun. It is the story you will never, ever hear on MSNBC. And because it is complicated, Fox News hasn't done it well at all,

Drago said...

Titus takes timeout from his many musings of trysts with "muzzies" (who routinely murder gays by horrific methods) to offer up his observation about how hard it must be to be gay in the US bible belt.

Well, lets just say its not"cut off your head" or "throw you off buildings" bad.

I happen to believe that kind of a distinction should matter.

Thankfully the hookers aren't Feeling the Bern, if you know what I mean.

Drago said...

I forgot to add a "courageous" modifer to the muslims that murder gays. Failure to add "courageous" to muslims doing these sorts of things always upsets garage.

Yay!

Now on to Trump

wildswan said...

Looks like Trump in South Carolina with Rubio second, Cruz very close so the two could shift; and then Bush. So Bush might stay in

Bay Area Guy said...

The Bernie Boomlet sadly is coming to an end. Bummer. Hillary and black caucus destroys him in the South.

Amanda said...

Sunsong,
Either Democratic nominee is infinitesimally better than any candidate on the right. I'm a Bernie supporter but I will vote for Clinton, considering whoever the Republican candidate would be.

Amanda said...

A Clinton/Trump debate will be amazing. He will make faces, make insinuations about her husband, question her bonafides as a feminist and roll around in the mud somemore, while Clinton will trump him with facts and make him look like the doofus he is. Can't wait.

Amanda said...

A Bernie/ Trump debate would be even more amazing. Trump probably wouldn't show up.

walter said...

H!: It can't be just about what we're going to give to you.

sanders crowd : Booooo!!

Ctmom4 said...

A Bernie/Trump debate would be hilarious. Two miserable cranky old men with bad hair shouting at one another, completely fact free.

Birkel said...

The bigotry of Titus is so savage. Titus cannot see that insulting a whole group of people is wrong. Titus cannot understand how he, of all people, can be full of hate and nastiness. But with every comment, Titus, you prove yourself deplorable.

Others with a similar sexual bent will be judged individually, of course. That you are a hateful bigot offers no reflection of anybody. You must own your own putrescence. You are rotten on the inside.

I hope you learn to be more tolerant of the other, Titus.

robinintn said...

"Clinton will trump him with facts". So far she's had a little trouble with facts. And by so far, I mean approximately since Whitewater.

Hagar said...

She beat somebody's crazy old uncle by 4 points.

Brando said...

Playing the gender card is a pretty clear sign she has absolutely nothing else. Bushes may beat Sabnders, and may then beat the GOP because they're great at shooting themselves, but there up is nothing for her to be proud of here. Fortunately for this rape couple, they have no need of pride.

Ctmom4 said...

Turnout was down by a third from 2012 in Nevada. Record turnout in South Carolina.

Ctmom4 said...

Sorry, down by a third from 2008 in Nevada.

Titus said...

I am not a fan of islamic terrorists who cut fags heads off Drago....gee

Sure, I like DL muzzles, but that doesn't equate I am fan of muzzies in general. You pubes always get this shit wrong.

Fags are not friends with muzzies, please try to understand. We are not fans of evangelicals either.

tits.

A Trump - either Hilary or Sanders debate would be extremely interesting, even historic. Trump is a very very clever fighter, quick on his feet and can make surprising attacks from unexpected directions. He also utterly lacks the tendency of recent Republicans to pull their punches. Trump, unlike them, has a killer instinct. He hasn't had a fundamental ideological opposite to play against, yet, but he has made do.
Sanders is a very milquetoaste sort of debater, and so far anyway has done little but point out the economic failures of the last few years. My take is he flusters easily.
Hilary is not quick on her feet at all, and hasn't had any open competition on the stage, Sanders acting more like a sparring partner. She also seems highly programmed, set to do a speech rather than take hits and counter. I wonder about her in a real fight. I suspect a glass jaw.
As for "facts" - they don't exist in the context of this sort of debate. Anything anyone keeps on their index cards is selected by the team for rhetorical purposes, cherry picked for effect. This sort of thing goes back to Caesar and Cicero.
If you want to come to a conclusion on some matter using facts, pull them from the BLS or the Federal Reserve or the Census yourself and use Excel. Don't trust anything, especially the context, of anything quoted by a politician.

"Either Democratic nominee is infinitesimally better than any candidate on the right"

Hilarious example of the stupidity of Amanda and the left.

Why don't you look up the definition of "infinitesimal?"

In mathematics, infinitesimals are things so small that there is no way to measure them.

Thanks for a laugh, leftie.

buwaya puti said...

Titus should look up Milo Yiannopoulos.
Rather his type I think.
If Trump is smart, thats the next White House Press Secretary, assuming Trump needs one. In spite of being a Greek/Brit.

Amanda said...

Michael K,

And your party's nominee will be Trump, LMAO. 'Nuff said.

traditionalguy said...

Walking around casino chips were probably palmed to each voter at the polls.

Amanda said...

And Michael old boy,

If you had half the brains of Bernie you might recognize that I was employing hyperbole. But I'm SOOOO impressed that you went out of your way to link to a Wiki explanation of "infinitesimal". You make Bernie look mellow, you're much crankier than he is. Always so negative, cheer up old boy, at your age you waste precious moments being so crotchety.

Fabi said...

Instead of admitting her error, Amanda proves that she doesn't understand the term hyperbole. If it were 'hypobole', you might have a point; but it isn't, and you don't. lol

Amanda said...

I get it that you Not Fab and Michael K are butt hurt that you belong to the Stupid Party and feel like you must create some diversion from the sad fact that your front runner is Donald Trump, but it's beginning to reek of desperation. You folks created the monster. He's all yours. I'll just eat my popcorn and chuckle at the infinitesimal chance that your party will get it's candidate into the White House this year, or for that matter ever again.

eddie willers said...

The only Republican that could have lost to Hillary just dropped out.

Fabi said...

Sounds like you need a Safe Space, some crayons, and your emotional support pig, Amanda.

Amanda said...

Not Fab,
No thanks, it's much more fun poking the loons like you who inhabit these comments threads. I'm feeling quite secure, I don't think I can say the same for you folks. I'm sorry you have so many slow learners in your party, but that's not my fault.

buwaya puti said...

The Bushes, father and sons, are all good men. In every sense of the term, politically as well, as that term "good men" goes back to ancient Rome.
Look up the Optimates or the boni, the Roman senatorial faction. The parallels are eerie.

eddie willers said...

So is Trump Caesar...or Pompey?

buwaya puti said...

Does it matter?
Maybe he is Gaius Marius. Which would be a good thing, for a while. At least he will save the Republic from a crisis or two.
But,
If so he is the first of several more.
Go get Colleen McCulloughs series.
It's wonderful and instructive.

Fabi said...

Infinitesimally slow learners, Amanda? lol

Chris Matthews: 'Not all politics is on TV'

Terry said...

If your government is setup so that a single bad person in a position of power can commit genocide, start WW3, or crash the world economy, you are doing it wrong.

PB said...

News flash: The Dems weren't even registering people before going into the caucus rooms, claiming they'll register afterwards. Yeah, right. They'll check citizenship, too!

What a very democratic party.

Rhythm and Balls said...

Thanks sunsong for the explanation.

Well, what do you know... it was Harry Reid. If anyone knows how machine politics works it's Chris Matthews.

Thanks for that parting gift, farting on the Democratic party, Harry.

May your retirement be short and unpleasant.

And filled with heavy exercise equipment.

Curious George said...

A mujer? Are you sure?

John said...

Are Elba Pinera (Piñera?) and Dora Gonzalez citizens or otherwise here legally? Or are they illegal aliens?

If illegal, what are they doing getting involved? I guess they have a legal, if not moral, right to. Did they vote? If they are illegals, they broke the law doing this.

An enterprising reporter would have asked them if they voted for Hilary. Then if they were legal.

Hillary claimed the MI governor poisoned the children of Flint to save a few dollars. What a heinous person she is.

OK R&B, that made me chuckle and laugh. Well played.

chillblaine said...

We are going to send another Democrat to the White House with the help of legacy media cheerleaders? What happens when every Trump bombast gets amplified by the very same media? Trump boat-races Hillary, that's what.
