WELL, IT IS A PARTY PREDICATED ON THE IDEA...

Officials Say Fla., Mich. Delegates Will Get Half-Votes (NEDRA PICKLER, 5/31/08, The Associated Press)

Democratic Party leaders agreed Saturday seat Michigan and Florida delegates with half votes into this summer's convention with a compromise that left Barack Obama on the verge of the nomination but riled Hillary Rodham Clinton backers who threatened to fight to the August convention.

"Hijacking four delegates is not a good way to start down the path of party unity," said adviser Harold Ickes.

The party who 8 years ago had the slogan "count every vote" now can't even count them as three-fifths of one.

The strangest part is that Obama got a heap of free delegates out of Michigan, despite the fact that nobody there voted for him.

It's amazing to watch how the Dems abuse their own voters year after year. This gerry-rigged half vote (your vote sort of counts) and giving one candidate votes they never got (hey, we'll tell YOU who you voted for!), as a great view into the soul of the Democratic Party - they're Commies! Heaven help us if they win in November.
