West Virginia Primary Wrap-Up

Yesterday was the West Virginia primary, which both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders were expected to win, and they did. Who cares Donald Trump! Congratulations to Bernie Sanders, who is the first Jewish presidential candidate ever to win the West Virginia primary!

And congratulations to Hillary Clinton, who, by virtue of proportional delegate allocation, is still leading the Democratic nomination and remains on a historic path to become the first ever female Democratic presidential nominee. Not that you would know it from the media's yawning indifference to her remarkable trailblazing.

As of this writing, at some ungodly hour of the evening, Clinton has a substantial lead in the nonbinding Nebraska primary. Huzzah!

It's nonbinding because of course there was a Nebraska caucus in March, which Sanders won. Something something rigged! Something something undemocratic! Etc.

In related bloop news [content note: disablist language]:

It's a good thing the Democratic primary is effectively over, because this is a perfect example of how open primaries leave lots of room for fuckery, especially when other party's nominating process is over.
