Better Than Any Last Second, Heroic Shot, Goal or Touchdown - Or Hillary Claim ... By A Mile!

Boy, I needed a "pick-me-up" today.

Aside from things on the homefront, we had all the delusional Clintonistas, in their best Grand Central Station Locker Creatures (from the Movie "Men In Black), making the cable news rounds with all their unbridled enthusiasm, ("Hillary is back! The keeper of the light! All hail Hillary! All hail Hillary! Oh Hillary can you see by the dawn's early light..."), still trying to sell the "Hillary's winning the popular vote! ... It's the popular vote that should count! ..."

And, The Most Fabulous Object In The World, herself, conducted the delusion, fanning it more, giving it wings;

Hillary's latest lie: I've won more states than Obama... if you don't count 38 of the 50 states

“I’ve been closing very strongly since Feb. 20,” she said, referring to the day after Mr. Obama won Hawaii and Wisconsin. “I have won more votes and won more states than Senator Obama. All the independent analyses break in my direction. A lot of the key states that we have to win, I win those states.”

Which Kos sets straight, noting the facts - "Obama has won 32 states (including the Texas caucuses) plus DC. Clinton has won 19 (including the Texas primary). Now of course, Clinton is using a little sleigh of hand to disenfranchise the states that voted before February 20. That's 37 states."

Help Me Mr. Wizard!

Well, Mister Wizard came through, for which we H/T Barry Crimmins for delivering this nothing-but-major-cool-feel-good-story (and I'm kickin' myself I missed this, as it occurred just over a month ago);

'Unbelievable' sportsmanship in softball game; CWU players carry WOU player around bases after knee injury following HR
PORTLAND, Ore. - With two runners on base and a strike against her, Sara Tucholsky of Western Oregon University uncorked her best swing and did something she had never done, in high school or college. Her first home run cleared the center-field fence.

But it appeared to be the shortest of dreams come true when she missed first base, started back to tag it and collapsed with a knee injury.

She crawled back to first but could do no more. The first-base coach said she would be called out if her teammates tried to help her. Or, the umpire said, a pinch runner could be called in, and the homer would count as a single.

Then, members of the Central Washington University softball team stunned spectators by carrying Tucholsky around the bases Saturday so the three-run homer would count — an act that contributed to their own elimination from the playoffs.

You can read Barry's post - Title IX... Title IX... Title IX - to connect the dots.

And while you do, listen to the legendary Bob Dorough, and his classic rendition of "Better Than Anything", to add another layer to the buzz.
