stalkers and delegates

Just a few minutes ago I was reading the 360° blog, trying to catch up on all the Anderson's Views. He blogged yesterday and I just found it entertaining so I thought that I'd post it up here before I go off on some other topic. It was somewhat about a conversation he had with Conan O'Brien the night before about how all the Anderson stalkers can talk to him during the live blogging during his show.

"As most of you know, there is a big difference between being a fan, or a regular viewer and being a stalker. What’s the difference? Well if you have to ask yourself that question, that’s probably not a good sign. But here’s a handy guide in case you are…well…confused.

1. If you’ve been contacted by authorities and asked not to attempt to contact me further… but you still do, there’s a good chance you’ve crossed the line.
2. If you’ve attempted to gain entry to my apartment under false pretenses, and can’t imagine why that might be inappropriate, that’s another red flag.
3. If you believe I am secretly communicating to you online, or with the clothes I wear, or by telepathy through your radiator, that’s a problem as well.
4. If you have read the last three items and laughed, or said, “wow, that’s weird” you are not a stalker.
5. If you have read items 1-3 and notice they apply to you, but then tell yourself they actually don’t apply to you. Well, that’s not good. "

I love his sense of humor, and boy do I feel bad if some of those things actually happened to him!

So now onto what I really wanted to write about. I am really not a fan of spliting up delegates within states. I like the way that the Republican's have it in some states, winner takes all. Last night I was watching Jon Stewart on Larry KIng Live and he was saying how they're essentially just giving delegates to people for no reason. His example was something like, oh you only got one percent of the votes, here have a delegate. He's got a point there. I thought that how delegates were distributed depended on how each individual district voted. Well in Hawaii, Obama won every district by a landslide as he did for the entire state and he only ended up with 14 of Hawaii's 20 delegates. It makes no sense to me, but then again what do I know.

Yeah that delegate stuff is confusing... Still, I'm very pleased that Obama won Hawaii without breaking a sweat, but I woulda been more surprised if he hadn't.

Anderson Cooper is very funny... Speaking of funny hosts, have you seen the O'brien-Colbert-Stewart fight scene?
