I actually know a girl who is so geeky that she and her new boyfriend fucking whiteboarded an outline of their future relationship.

Swear to god, not making that up.

On a different note, ever want something very, very badly but something else happens, fucks it all up, and in the process you realize your original want was a stunningly poor idea and you just dodged a world-class bullet?

Ayup.

This is an interesting picture, given the filename and the domain that's hosting it.

Because the delegate count between Obama and Clinton is virtually tied, even after Super Tuesday, the contest may very well come down to the so-called "superdelegates," a select group of people whose votes in the primaries mean a lot more than yours or mine.

There are about a million people in Rhode Island and collectively they send 32 delegates to the convention to pick the Democratic nominee. This means roughly 31,000 people will collectively cast one vote.

A superdelegate, on the other hand, is a single individual -- such as a senator -- whose single vote carries as much weight as those 31,000 people. The United States has an eligible voting population of about 200,000,000 people and they collectively send 3,253 votes to the convention.

There are approx. 796 of these superdelegates an each one of their votes is worth one vote toward the nominee. Put another way, 0.000004% of the population will cast 20% of the votes which determine who represents the Democratic party in 2008.

Kind of reminds me of a quote from Orwell's Animal Farm: "All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others."

CNN politicla analyst Donna Brazile said this of the superdelegates: "If 795 of my colleagues decide this election, I will quit the Democratic Party. I feel very strongly about this."

I'd like to say I couldn't agree more but actually, I can.

If superdelegates decide the Democratic nominee, I will vote for the GOP candidate in the general election. Why? Because simply staying home won't convey my disgust quite as well as I'd like.

And frankly I don't care if that nominee is Obama. It's wrong.
