Even college basketball alternates possessions after the jump ball at the tip off.

Then again, no one ever said it was fair.

I will call it how I see it.

Auto correct is a wonderful thing.


Is grammar patrol all you got?

1 in 64 isn't very rare. In math terms that's actually extremely common.

Bernie just has crap luck. Although it would have been nice to see the videos that were taken close up.

Just wondering if all the Sanders supporters are feeling Bernt today.

C'mere, let this Ron Paul supporter give you a hug. I know your anguish.




Not at all, he wasn't projected to win Iowa and he came extremely close. A small loss is still a big win for his campaign. He's also projected to win New Hampshire by a lot. If he loses there it will be a sad day, but a small loss in Iowa isn't a big deal at all.

About as common as hitting a megabucks jackpot in Las Vegas.

Sanders didn't really lose.
Hillary declared victory, but some networks still say it is too close to call.
Statistically, it's a tie.
There are still a small number of precinct votes in dispute.

Toss a coin...and see how long it takes you to get 6 heads in a row.

Plus, coin tosses don't reflect voter preference.

At worst, Bernie and Hillary tied.

If Sanders had won 3 of those six tosses...Sanders would've won.

The sequence will appear on average once in 64 coin tosses.

Is the American Public so destroyed, beaten down, indoctrinated and complacent that it will not only believe that six coin tosses allowed the Iowa Caucus to be decided but also allow it?

This is all to make sure you do not think about the shared emails between her and Barack and get upset about this instead.

Honestly, the vast majority of democrats hate republicans too much to be critical of their own party.

'on average'
It took me 93 tosses to get 6 tails in a row.

Agree. Democrat hatred of Republicans is palpable.
We're used to it.

EDIT: Hillary also calls Republicans her enemy; Bernie, does not.
Maybe THAT'S why Iowa caucus committee JUST now declared Clinton the official winner with 4 more delegates than Sanders.

Was this a "Heads, I win. Tails, you lose" coin toss? Bernie too old to catch on to that one?

Seriously, I tried six coin tosses and came up 'heads' only twice. And I consider myself a very lucky person.


You consider yourself a lucky person, and random chance coin flips came up random for you? Crazy! I agree obviously tampered with if you couldn't replicate.
