No Home On The Rez

A Native American gaming tribe in California is hosting a presidential forum for Democrat Party candidates this afternoon.

S-o-o-o-o, the Magic Negro and Senator Thunderthighs (Shrew-NY), well, they can't be bothered, just like a few others. "Scheduling conflicts", you see.

How does the Democrat Party save some face when the heavy-hitters, along with most of the lightweight no-names, have no time for the little people?

Send in the poster child for people-powered politics, the original darling and first successful national candidate of the reality-based nutroots community!

Howard Dean to appear at Morongo presidential forum

Former Vermont governor and one-time presidential candidate Howard Dean will join American Indian leaders for a historic presidential forum for democratic candidates today at the Morongo Band of Mission Indians Casino Resort and Spa in Cabazon.

The event, which will feature three of the eight Democratic presidential candidates -- New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich and former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel -- is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. at the tribal conference center.

All three substantially trail Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., the front-runner in the race for the Democratic nomination, and Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., second in the polls.

Dean also will attend today’s event and host a reception for tribal leaders following the forum.

Many of the democratic frontrunners declined to attend the forum because of scheduling conflicts, according to organizer Kalyn Free, a Choctaw from Oklahoma, who said Indian country was still “excited” about the event.
Be sure and stay excited. When it's convenient for them, you-know-who will stop by just long enough to grab a few bags of "love gifts". Just make sure that they're stuffed full, then bend over and kiss your ass good-bye because that is the only concern for Native Americans -- your money into their pockets.

Enjoy this Shrillary-free zone live, 6:30 EDT; 3:30 PDT.

Leading presidential contender Ron Paul is trying to figure out where the hell is California, otherwise he'd be in attendance.
