Howard Witt might have said it best …

“You say a caucus. I say a ruckus. A hocus, a jokus, a chaos, a muckus – let’s call the whole thing rough.” [swampy]

It was anything but calm, collected and normal last night in Texas, as precinct after precinct attempted to due their due diligence. Yet all the while, both camps were accusing the other of playing dirty tricks.

“The campaign legal hotline has been flooded with calls containing specific accusations of irregularities and voter intimidation against the Obama campaign,” Lyn Utrecht, legal counsel for the Clinton campaign in Texas, announced in an e-mail message to reporters late Tuesday night. “This activity is undemocratic, probably illegal, and reflects a wanton disregard for the caucus process.”

Perhaps this proud Democratic caucus volunteer summed it up best:

“I didn’t invent this and I don’t know who did,” another precinct volunteer mumbled to no one in particular. “I’d like to kill them.”
