I'm not sure if this has been diaried already, but this was too funny to pass up. The Clinton campaign has launched this website to "set the facts straight" regarding pledged delegates / superdelegates / Florichigan.
Some of the jems:
As more voters make their choice for the Democratic nomination, there is growing interest in the facts and myths about the race to reach 2208 delegate votes - the number required for a candidate to secure the nomination with Florida and Michigan included.
Notice the number needed is now 2208 with Florichigan included. Moving the goalposts anyone?
In the 2004 presidential race, the turnout in Michigan was only a quarter of what it was this year - and the 2004 turnout in Florida was less than half of what it was this year. With such dramatically increased turnout, Hillary won those two states and she did it with all candidates on an equal footing. In Florida, all presidential candidates were on the primary ballot and all followed the rules (except for Sen. Obama who broke the rules by running television ads in violation of his pledge to the early states and to the other presidential candidates). In Michigan, Sen. Obama voluntarily withdrew his name from the primary ballot to curry favor with Iowa. He was under no obligation to do so. However, his supporters organized a substantial vote for 'uncommitted' on the ballot, thus he is represented in the delegation.
Equal footing??? He is represented in the delegation??? Excuse me while I search for the little bits of my head that just exploded ...
She has won states she was not expected to win -- such as Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Arizona. She has won in rural, urban and suburban areas. She has won key swing general election states such as Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Arkansas and Tennessee. She is winning virtually all the states a Democrat will need to win the presidency.
Excuse me, but a short while ago she WAS EXPECTED TO WIN EVERY SINGLE STATE!!
And Wisconsin was won both by Kerry and Gore by less than 1/2 of 1 percent. I'd call that a state democrats need to win.
From the comments, hilarious: at the bottom of the site it says:
