And the winner is... The SuperDelegates!

Today is the day that Indiana and North Carolina voters go to the polls. I say...it doesn't matter. It really doesn't. The ridiculous process used by the "Democrats" (Aristocrats?) is proving to be a total farce.

If someone had asked you to devise a nominating process that would guarantee that no one wins the nomination based on the vote of its citizens, this is the process you would design. Let's face it - if the Mainstream Media outlets disagree on delegate counts more than 2 weeks after the last primary, how transparent can the system be? (Check out the "official" delegate counts from AP and NBC. Seriously. They're different.)

Citizens of Indiana and North Carolina...your vote today will not help to select a candidate for November. Rather, it merely validates the SuperDelegate process. Remember this in November, when a SuperDelegate-chosen candidate faces off against a popular vote-chosen candidate. In my country, I trust the popular vote more than any "Super"Delegate vote.
