I Am The Very Model Of A Modern Major Idiot

Thanks to MyDD and LAist for the shout-outs about the ongoing California delegate fight. To Wonkette, for which we have Ana Marie Cox and the nexus of politics and ass-fucking to thank, big thanks for their too cool for school approach, which really makes Americans look totally awesome:

While most counts have Hillary Clinton at 207 delegates, she's more likely at about 203. We would give you the details but we find math boring, unless it concerns the price of a hooker. Here's a quote to explain things!

David Dayen, who blogs at the site Calitics and serves on its editorial board, wrote last week that Sen. Clinton won 203 of the state's 370 pledged delegates -- and not the commonly reported total of 207. He relied on updated vote totals from the state, based on late counts of absentee and provisional ballots. Later, when he noticed that several major news organizations still were showing Sen. Clinton with 207 delegates, he wrote a follow-up post explaining his calculation and exhorting, "I know math is hard and everything, but get out your calculators, people."

Thanks for doing the calculations, nerd! Within another month or two we expect Senator Obama to have a clear majority of delegates in California.

You're welcome, moron! Thanks for defining anti-intellectualism down so that anyone who knows how to use a calculator and divide ought to be ashamed of themselves!

And people wonder why our children is not learning.
