[Dear Superdelegates, video by Boowitch13]
So what has and is to become of us die-hard Hillary Clinton for President supporters, who refuse to let the injustices perpetrated by the DNC, Obama, and the Democratic Party be swept under the rug and hidden from view? We continue to speak out and speak up to the world at large and especially to the Superdelegates, whom we urge to carry out their jobs in service to the voice of the People and electing the most qualified candidate as our President and Commander-In-Chief: Hillary Clinton.
Use the soundtrack to inspire you during today’s Puma Prowl. We may be broken-hearted — mostly due to the loss of truth and freedom in this election cycle — but we are NOT DONE taking action, bearing witness, and righting the wrongs that were foisted upon the voters of our country.

TO: Puma PAC Members
Subject: Today’s PROWL
Hello Puma PAC,
Today we are holding accountable those Super Delegates who appear to have been for sale. After receiving donations from Barack Obama’s political action committee, the Hope Fund, these politicians endorsed him and pledged to vote for him as Super Delegates in Denver. EVEN THOUGH HILLARY WON IN THEIR DISTRICTS IN MARGINS AS HIGH AS 60 POINTS! Let that sink in for a moment. Barack Obama gave these Super Delegates LOTS OF MONEY and now they are going to OVERTURN THE WILL OF THEIR CONSTITUENTS IN DENVER.
Puma PAC, we MUST speak up! Fax the following document to the list of Super Delegates below. We will also be calling 3 of these Super Delegates today.
DON’T BE AFRAID TO MAKE NOISE PUMA PAC! IF WE DON’T TELL THESE POLITICIANS THAT OUR VOTES ARE NOT FOR SALE, WHO ON EARTH WILL??
Thank you and Good Luck,

I had a long conversation with a 26-year-old PhD student who had never heard of PUMA! I informed her about it and she didn’t bat an eye…
The media has left us with so many uniformed voters that Obama can get away with all this smoke and mirrors crap. He managed it so well during the primaries…now we see Milbank talking about the “presumptuous nominee.” (Will he be allowed back on Keithie’s show??)
The result is what I experienced last night…someone who knows nothing, but has the words “change” and “working together” in her political vocabulary…
Let’s Face It, PUMAs—Uninformed, Conforming Voters are Our Worst Enemy….No Matter How Smart They Are (Updated 1X)
So now, when, as Obama thinks, he doesn’t need more delegates to be a nominee, he says that the MI & FL delegations should be seated in full and with full voting rights. So he acknowledges that the popular vote is clearly on Hillary’s side – better later than never.
It’s easy to tell now why is this rush – the polls show clearly that Florida is leaning towards McCain more and more, and Michigan is again a on a table. And in this heat I believe Clinton should use the situation without much hesitation and urge for a roll call during the convention. Let’s see who will get more delegates at the finish.
Digg this YouTube if you Digg.
In case anyone is interested what was the real problem with Hillary’s candidacy:
I have followed your blog but am a little concerned since there have been no posts for 11 days.
Hope all is well with you.
Hope you have not given up.
Sending good thoughts your way.
Over at Puma pac we are trying to help as many pumas get to Denver as possible. In true grassroots spirit we are getting creative. If you cannot attend the convention but want pumas well-represented, consider donating freq flyer miles. They will be matched with a Puma with limited funds to help them get to Denver.

Watching it made me cry out of sheer joy in finding it and realizing that we have been right all along and we must continue to press on, regardless of ‘assigned trolls’, intimidation, threats of violence and verbal attacks. We are the true Democrats and we have known this all along…stay stead fast and history will note that not everyone was asleep!
Thank you God and I don’t mean Obama!
