This might possibly be the most dangerous thing you’ll see a human being do that doesn’t involve any explosive devices.

Just wow.

Clinton thinks she’s playing basketball

The teaser on this NYT story was something along the lines of, “Game’s not over, Clinton supporters agree.”

I guess they’re leaving out the fact it’s quite late in the fourth, she’s down by double-digits, has no fouls to give and worse, is in serious foul trouble herself. So yes, it’s not “over.” But she’s losing the game barring some magic officiating.

Hey, maybe Clinton knows she’s paid the refs off for this game and is still waiting for the bribe to go into effect …

From the link:

In the height of basketball season, here in the heart of basketball country, it was perhaps inevitable that the state of the Democratic presidential race would be boiled down in championship terminology.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York stood in center court, with basketball hoops on all sides, as she offered up a sporting metaphor.

“You know, we are in the fourth quarter and it is a close contest. We are running up and down. We are taking shots,” Mrs. Clinton said, speaking over a crescendo of applause. “And in the next months, we’re going to have 10 more contests, from Indiana to Pennsylvania — all the way to Puerto Rico! Millions of people will have a chance to have their voices heard and their votes counted.”

The point? This game is not over.
