Breaking: MSM Pretending Clinton Still Viable Candidate

Yes, the "Breaking" part is sarcasm. We've known this for quite some time.

What's new is that the Politico (pardon me while I retch) has exposed the we're-all-in-on-it fraud and explained the psychology/stupidity/innumeracy behind it.

Some choice excerpts:

Unless Clinton is able to at least win the primary popular vote — which also would take nothing less than an electoral miracle — and use that achievement to pressure superdelegates, she has only one scenario for victory. An African-American opponent and his backers would be told that, even though he won the contest with voters, the prize is going to someone else.

People who think that scenario is even remotely likely are living on another planet.


In other words: The notion of the Democratic contest being a dramatic cliffhanger is a game of make-believe. The real question is why so many people are playing.

Read the whole thing.
