I haven't written since Super Tuesday. It's mostly because I'm super confused. The Republicans are easy. I continue to look dumb for my anti McCain tirades, but easy nonetheless. It's just the Democrats. Obama claims he won Super Tuesday. Clinton claims she won Super Tuesday. Headlines range from "Not-So-Super Tuesday" to "Who Won Super Tuesday" to "CNN Won Super Tuesday." WTF? NBC news is saying that Obama won by a measly two delegates, which would change nothing. CNN is reporting that Clinton won Super Tuesday by 23 delegates, larger margin but also relatively insignificant. And it gets wackier when you look at the overall numbers. MSNBC is giving Obama 861 delegates and Clinton 855. CNN is giving Clinton 1,033 and Obama 937, but it's asterisked to include pledged delegates and super delegates. Remind me again what the point of primaries are? Oh and the icing on the cake, shouldn't go without saying that declaring victors with 2% of precincts reporting is completely irresponsible? Frankly, I'm tired of sifting through the gobbledygook. Nor do I have the time.
