“If Appalachia was a country, Hillary Clinton could be President”

The divine Rachel Maddow retorts: “Yeah, but she’d lose to McCain.”

The outrage expressed over at Balloon Juice is similar to my own. How can anyone say “Count all the votes” with a straight face and then turn around and claim to be ahead in the popular vote by excluding all of the caucus states but Texas and Washington, and giving Barack Obama NO VOTES in Michigan?

There are lies, damn lies, statistics, and then Clinton spin.

    First thing I heard this morning from my 83-year old mother-in-law (Hillary’s demographic), “Well, looks like Obama’s got the delegates but Hillary’s got the votes”.

    Hillary Clinton herself stood before a national audience last night and dishonestly claimed to be ahead in the popular vote. There’s already a word for that kind of dishonesty: Clintonian.

    Amen. It’s completely frustrating.
