Hillary has beaten Barack Obama in yet another landslide victory. This time in Puerto Rico, where the former first lady beat the upstart senator from Illinois by a two-to-one margin. Coming on the heels of other decisive victories, including Indiana and a shellacking in Kentucky and West Virginia, and with Obama’s victories getting fewer and farther between, you would think someone would stand up and say, wait a minute! This ain’t over!
You would think.
Yet the Democrat elite machine is determined to deliver the nomination to Obama. The narrative is set. This weekend’s rules committee debacle determined that voters from Michigan and Florida would only count as half a person, and conjured a slate of Michigan delegates for Obama out of thin air towards just that end. You see, if Democrats count the votes in those states, and count them equally, Obama’s lead falls into question.
So much for counting all the votes. For that matter, so much for democracy in the Democrat party. Democrats fervently believe the people are too stupid to be trusted with decisions like these. That’s why Democrats concocted super-delegates to begin with.
For all intents and purposes, the Democrat nomination was decided this weekend by the rules committee, regardless of who is winning or eventually wins the popular vote.
In related news, showing he knows on which side his bon bon is buttered, Ricky Martin came out, so to speak, in support of Hillary, endorsing her just prior to Puerto Rico’s primary.
What a weekend!
