POLITICS: Glorious Day

Those of you who read a lot of blogs have seen this already, but really, I can't read this post by left-wing blogger John Aravosis often enough. It brings me great joy.

You know, it's hard to tell somebody to get out of the race when they keep winning primaries. How do you say "stop embarrassing the nominee by beating him"?

Meanwhile, Michael Barone explains (with a link to your truly) why Obama will have a tough media night on Tuesday and why he can't really put the race away on Tuesday. Key quote: "no one wants to be identified as the superdelegate who single-handedly decided the Democratic nomination - that is, who rejected either the first woman or the first black with a serious chance to be nominated."

I keep thinking what horrible people the Phillies were for not accepting the math and getting out of the way last season.

There is a traditional method for getting your opponent out of the race. It's known as "winning".

Right, if the Phillies would have stepped aside, the Mets could have concentrated their efforts on beating the Red Sox in November.

The guy who wrote that column and his commenters are nuts.
