I love this stuff ... statistics ... there were 6 coinflips for delegates and HRC won all of them ... reminded me of this scene from Dumb & Dumber: https://youtu.be/KX5jNnDMfxA

    The problem is that the smell test isn't even possible. Just walking into the Democratic caucuses would overwhelm one's olfactory organs!

    For a great explanation on how manipulative the Democratic Caucus in Iowa is, check out this simple demo: http://cowboybyte.com/42548/how-a-cau...

    The game is rigged from the beginning.

    What was also interesting is that initially, Hillary instructed several of her delegates to side with Martin O'Malley to attempt to give him some legitimacy. When it turned out that she couldn't afford to lose the delegates, they had to switch back!

      Now I understand why I don't understand. That is probably the biggest mashup of "Gladiators vs Godzilla and Mothra" ever to make it to the big screen. Now we know why the Obamanations foreign policy and everything else is such a mess.

    A open socialist and a communist went to Iowa, flipped for who was who - and we`re surprised it was a dead heat? Wanna bet ol Hill kept the coin?( for the payphone in prison)

    Winning six coin tosses is a 1:64 chance. It's not astronomical in any way. It's unlikely but not egregiously so.

      True Db, but people amped up in primaries are not going to consider the cold hard truths of math.

      They will just maintain that they were cheated....no matter what.

      Considering the two sides in this dispute it's a bit of the pot calling the kettle black.

    You would think this would be such a debacle as to illustrate the whole futility of trying to elect anyone anymore. And we haven't even gotten to the really dirty parts where the electoral machines come up Dumbocrap, even when Republicrap is selected (remember the video from his Lord and Majesticnesses last triumphal win?). Reminds me of the election in Little Polk County Oregon, where the upstart Republcrat new guy breathing fire was going to slay the evil incumbent establishment lord, only to go from winning by 108 votes, and after 5 or 6 recounts, we reached a much more accurate (and acceptable) 6 votes for the incumbent. Who also was the County Clerks boss. Vote by mail is a honest as an Iowa Democrat Caucus.
