It's So Over

Is anyone else around here getting sick and tired of Hillary Clinton’s utterly bogus claim that she has a lead in the popular vote?

She says, “More people have voted for me than for anybody ever running for president before.” But she bases this claim on counting the votes in Michigan and Florida. What a joke.

How is this not essentially the same thing as Alex Rodriguez going to a local batting cage, setting the pitching machine at 75 mph, hitting 200 homers into the nets, and then sitting in the Yankee locker room tonight and claiming that he is now the career home run leader in major league baseball? Sure, he hit the homers, but he had no competition. It was not truly sanctioned baseball in which he hit them. They just don’t count.

And, neither do her votes in unsanctioned and uncontested primaries. To claim otherwise is an embarrassing act of desperation and her argument that she is staying in the race until June 3rd because all primary voters deserve to have this HRC-BHO choice is getting weaker every day. She’s turning herself into a cartoon.
