Update: Slick Willie Rips Casino Caucuses

Oh. So Slick Willie defends the lawsuit against the casino caucuses? Hmm. No one seemed to have a problem back in May when the decision was made. From abc News:

ABC News' Teddy Davis and Sarah Amos Report: While campaigning in Oakland, Calif., on Wednesday, former President Bill Clinton defended a lawsuit challenging the Nevada Democratic Party's decision to permit casino workers to join presidential caucuses at their workplaces, even as he denied that he or his wife's campaign had anything to do with the litigation.

"Do you really believe that all the Democrats understood that they had agreed to give everybody who voted in a casino a vote worth five times as much as people who voted in their own precinct? Did you know that?" Clinton said in a testy exchange with Mark Matthews of KGO, ABC's affiliate in San Francisco. "What happened is nobody understood what had happened. ... Now, everybody's saying, 'Oh they don't want us to vote.' What they really tried to do was to set up a deal where their votes counted five times, maybe even more."

If turnout were incredibly low in the casino caucuses and incredibly high in the regular precinct caucuses, Clinton would be right in warning that votes cast in the at-large casino caucuses could be worth "five times, maybe even more" than votes cast at regular precinct caucuses, according to Bill Buck, a consultant to the Nevada Democratic Party.

Clinton is being disingenuous, however, when he makes it sound as if this feature of the Nevada caucuses was only recently discovered. It's been known for months.

What has changed is knowledge that the Culinary Workers, the union which represents the casino workers, is backing Barack Obama.

Awww. Slick Willie is upset because wifey poo didn't get the endorsement that was rightfully hers. So instead of being a man about it he's whining and pouting and having a flat out temper tantrum,

"Waaaaa. Waaaa. It's not Faaaiiirrrrrr. We didn't know. We didn't know. If my wifey poo can't benefit neither can that Obama. Waaaa. Waaaaaa."

(Stamps feet. Sticks thumb in mouth)

Oh these Clintons will stop at nothing.

How's you feeling about your first Black president now?
