Clinton to Pelosi: “You sank my battleship”

Okay, she didn’t really say that. But it’s what Pelosi just did to Hillary. Hat tip to reader Ryan (the “battleship” idea was his). From AP:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says it would be damaging to the Democratic party for its leaders to buck the will of national convention delegates picked in primaries and caucuses, a declaration that gives a boost to Sen. Barack Obama.

If the votes of the superdelegates overturn what’s happened in the elections, it would be harmful to the Democratic party,” Pelosi said in an interview taped Friday for broadcast Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”….

In her interview, Pelosi also said that even if one candidate winds up with a larger share of the popular vote than the delegate leader, the candidate who has more delegates should prevail.

“It’s a delegate race,” she said. “The way the system works is that the delegates choose the nominee.”

It’s time for Hillary to stop this nonsense and concede. She can’t win. But she can sure as hell take the rest of us down with her. And she is.
