Stupor Tuesday

If you haven't started the day with a headache, chances are you'll end with one. The mathematics of today's primaries would stupefy Einstein--super delegates, bonus delegates, caucuses, district splits, threshold percentages...

Last night Keith Olbermann and reporter David Shuster started out to explain it all and ended up in Abbott and Costello's Who's-on-First routine. Click on "Deconstructing delegates" and watch.

What ever happened to people going into a booth, pulling a lever and counting up the votes to see who wins?

If we really did that, George Bush wouldn't have become president after the 2000 election.
