Hillary, we're not stupid.

So, I'm not anti-Clinton like I know many are. I just want to preface my post with that understanding. I think she has a lot of fine qualities, and would make a good president ... at another time (not because of her gender, because of her politics). So, with that, I'm going to rant about something she's been saying:

“The fact is we have to include Michigan and Florida — we cannot claim that we have a nominee based on 48 states, particularly two states that are so important for us to win in the fall,” Mrs. Clinton said on Monday in Maysville.

Oh, come on! Seriously, you didn't take your name off the ballot in either of those states, and no one campaigned there. You got a default win because you were not taking "the higher road" of withdrawing from their races. Now, that's fine, you didn't want to piss off the people in those states, that's OK.

But to claim now that you're the winner there when you were the only one (of the top candidates) on the ballot? Especially when you're trying to claim you're the popular vote winner? No, I'm sorry, this is slimy politics, and this is not what people want right now, they're too sick of that sort of "cover up my disastor with a pretty cover and maybe no one will notice" crap from GWB.

I mean, I know the people of this country have been gullible, but I really hope that people notice that trying to prove your case using a farce like Michigan and Florida's no-op votes is truly ludicrous.
