MSNBC’s Chris Matthews has revealed that the major television networks plan to call the Democratic primary for Hillary Clinton during the day on June 7th — hours prior to the close of polls in California.
So let’s dispense with all these arcane DNC rules about what a
“super-delegate” is and when and where and how they vote and say what we
all know is true: Hillary has clinched the Democratic nomination, and
all these upcoming primaries and caucuses should be canceled to save
those states’ taxpayers their hard-earned tax dollars. Also, since the
super-delegates vote on July 25th but also apparently on June 7th, it
seems silly to have a convention in Philadelphia on the 25th of July
when we can just declare July 25th to be June 7th and hold the
Democratic National Convention in MSNBC’s studios in New York on that
date. There’ll be less room for dancing, but equally good catering, I’m told.
