Marc Ambinder (A REPORTED BLOG ON POLITICS!) notes “caucus problems” blamed on the Obama campaign:
“The Clinton campaign said tonight that Obama precinct workers illegally obtained caucus packets. . . . Basically, whoever ‘gets the packet’ controls the caucus. Technically, before the caucus begins at 7:15 CT, the packet is controlled by the precinct judge. But in reality, it might just be laying on a table somewhere . . . . There’s nothing the state party can or will do. They’re overwhelmed at the moment.”
Laugh at us and our invisible-ink pens all you want, but that’s nothing compared to Magic Packets, lying around like Wonka tickets, that actually control the democratic process.
In less amusing news, I can’t believe we have seven more months of listening to John McCain wait for applause that people aren’t sure whether or not to give.
Update III: More like Ghoulsbee.
Update IV: A democracy, if you can
find the packets first keep it.
