Hillarywankery

Yeah, I know she has to make her case, but this is just bogus:

Adding a new mathematical twist to her case for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton said on Monday that she had not only won more popular votes than Senator Barack Obama, she had won states totaling far more electoral votes.

“The states that I’ve won total 300 electoral votes,” she told about 300 people in a high school gymnasium in Maysville, the birthplace of the actor George Clooney. “The question is who can win 270 electoral votes? My opponent has won states totaling 217 electoral votes.”

So, in other words, it is apparently impossible for a candidate to win a state in the general election if they did not carry it in the primaries.  Fascinating.

But wait, it gets better:

The Clinton campaign, in an email message from spokesman Phil Singer, offered as evidence for their electoral college argument a memo from Karl Rove obtained by ABC News, which provides an estimate of electoral votes based on public opinion polls.

Mrs. Clinton cited the memo in an appearance in Prestonsburg, Ky., saying, “I believe I am the stronger candidate and just today I found some curious support for that position when one of the TV networks released an analysis by, of all people, Karl Rove, saying I was the stronger candidate. And there it is.”

She’s using Karl Rove as backup now, because he’s such a fair and reliable source whose math is never wrong.  Awesome.

    I bet Karl totally convinced her she can beat John McCain, too.
