Somewhere in an Iraqi prison, Saddam's famous "up is down" spin king Tariq Aziz is watching HRC's West Virginia "victory" speech with considerable professional respect and saying, "Not bad." This is becoming silly. The Clintons have always seen the truth as a sort of Silly Putty, something easily stretched, bent and twisted at whim. No shame at all in pretending that an alternate reality based on ego is the same as the truth. Amazing really. It's almost a sort of madness.

Note they had to break out a few acres of extra pipe and drape to cheat the smallish crowd. I might be off a little, but I think Obama picked up twice as many Super Delegates in the last ten days as HRC will get tonight from winning the nothing-burger in West Virginia. Is there a primary on Elba?
