I think he's stuck in a time-loop continuum and can't get out of it! He's reliving the same 5 minutes of that post over and over again.
 
Ahaha, okay, Data got me out of that time loop.

Seriously, it kept telling me "500 Server Error" or "NeoGAF appears to have a database problem", so I just kept hitting Refresh every few minutes until it appeared to work.

Poor guy must be stuck in an alternate reality where Hillary Clinton was the democratic nominee, and he has been chosen to fix the events of the day in order to correct that what is wrong. And he keeps reliving the same moments until he realizes what needs to be fixed in order to restore righteousness!

Clinton takes on TV pundits at distillery stop in Kentucky
Wrapping up a rally at the Maker's Mark bourbon distillery on Saturday, Hillary Clinton again argued that she leads Barack Obama in the popular vote and attacked the television "punditry" that has suggested the race is over.

"All those people on TV who are telling you and everybody else that this race is over and I should just be graceful and say, 'Oh it's over' even though I've won more votes - those are all people who have a job," Clinton told supporters picnicking in the gardens of the distillery.

"Those are all people who have health care. Those are all people who can afford to send their kids to college. Those are all people who can pay whatever is charged at the gas pump. They're not the people I'm running to be a champion for."

"They keep telling me to quit," said Clinton. "I don't know, maybe I was just raised with the kind of values you were raised [with]. You don't quit on people and you don't quit until you finish what you started and you don't quit on America."


Clinton has recently been claiming a lead over Obama in the popular vote, a debatable claim, especially because the Democratic National Committee doesn't count the votes of Florida and Michigan, which Clinton does.

Both states were disqualified by the DNC for bringing forward their primaries.

CNN's official count — including all primaries and caucuses but neither Florida nor Michigan — has Obama ahead by close to 700,000 votes.
Look u guiz, i'm just liek u!!!!!!

So Obama is more or less ignoring Kentucky like he did WV it seems.
Looks like it, however I doubt it will be as bad as West Virginia.
The advantage to Kentucky, is it will be overshadowed by Oregon in the media (even though the delegates are the same). Not to mention he will clinch the pledged delegates that day.
 
The tight race between Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama has attracted national attention not only to Tuesday's election but to Oregon's unique vote-by-mail system.

It's a key test for mail balloting. More than a dozen states are expanding vote-by-mail or considering expansion, but Oregon remains the only state with 100 percent mail balloting, after voters approved the change a decade ago.

With so much at stake, the last thing Secretary of State Bill Bradbury wants is an election day snafu. That's why he was "hugely concerned" after the state mailed 33,500 Oregonians two ballots apiece for Tuesday's election.

Those voters changed their party registration close to the April 29 deadline, after election officials had prepared ballots for mailing. The voters each received a ballot based on their old information and one with their updated registration.

"There was a real possibility that the whole thing would look completely fraudulent because of a bunch of people getting two ballots," Bradbury says. "You just really don't want that image."

But Bradbury and other election officials say the vote-by-mail system has enough safeguards in place to assure that each voter will vote only once. They sent notices and postcards to each of the voters advising them what to do, and now they are confident there won't be double voting.

"I have no question that the signature verification process will catch virtually every one of these," Bradbury says.

The Clinton and Obama campaigns are watching closely. Spokesmen for both campaigns say they aren't aware of problems and expect everyone to vote as intended -- once.

"However, we'll wait and see how it goes," says Obama spokesman Nick Shapiro.

Under vote-by-mail, there are no polling places. Voters get their ballots in the mail and have more than two weeks to send them back or deliver them to a drop-off site.
