A PCMR Newswire Exclusive News Story, by Ricky Sprague
My sources are telling me that Democrats in Michigan and Florida, whose delegations have been punished by the national party for moving their primaries up too early in the presidential nomination process, are planning to hold revotes on a Wednesday night around 2AM.
The reasoning? The state parties are fearful that Republicans, who have already chosen their nominee (the stalwart, maverick war hero John McCain), will "cross over" and vote in the Democratic primaries, probably for Hillary Clinton, because there is no way she could beat a stalwart, maverick war hero like John McCain.
"Most Republicans are in bed by, like, 8 or 9 o'clock on weeknights, unless there's a late football game or something," I was told by a Democratic source in one of the two states in question. "So, while they'll be sleeping the night away, dreaming about that '3 am phone call' ad, we'll be picking our nominee, Barack Obama."
During an appearance on the "Rush Limbaugh" radio show, husband of Hillary Clinton and former president Bill Clinton decried the decision, saying that it put an unfair burden on the very tired voters who make up the bulk of his wife's supporters.
"Most of my wife's voters are in bed by 8 or 9 o'clock on weeknights, unless there's a late football game," he said.
When asked specifically which Wednesday night the do-over voting was to take place, my Democratic source replied, "That's for us to know, and you to find out." So far, I have not found that out.

Unfortunately, my sources were unable to confirm whether the above postcard, which has been appearing in mailboxes in Michigan and Florida, was the work of Hillary Clinton's campaign, or the Republican Dirty Tricks Committee.
