Game Over, Monster

When the clock runs out and you are behind in the score, you don’t run to the referees to claim you were mounting a great last-minute drive, and were it not for that damned clock, you’d have won.

You accept that you’ve lost. You shake the other team’s hands. You say, “Good game.” You walk off the field. You don’t cry, “Give us the game, ref.”

You also don’t suggest that the obvious winner can now be your runner-up if they want. You don’t pretend to have won when you’ve clearly lost. That is called poor sportsmanship. In other circles, it’s called cheating. Just ask Bill Belichick.

If the SuperDelegates hand this nomination to Clinton after a clear Obama win, expect a bunch of players to never play again. And expect Hillary to get her clock cleaned by McCain.

  • SO true. My parents are die hard, big D Dems living in Ann Arbor who will NOT vote for Hillary if she pulls the Super Delegate victory card. In their words, "the Democrats need to learn this lesson at some point." This from two people who have literally detested every moment of the GW presidency.

    If they've turned so hard against her, it's scary to think where others sit on that spectrum.
