Yet another post about La. CaucusesSubmitted by islandflyer on Wed, 01/23/2008 - 21:09
(originally a reply to a post by Treber.
I have yet to get a satisfactory answer on this.
Now pay attention, please. It is my understanding that the top 15 and ONLY the top 15 vote getting delegate candidates go to the convention. (alternates too if the delegate drops dead). In light of that stipulation, I have the following observations and a question.
If ANYONE can give me a satisfactory answer I will shut up.
Let me get this straight:
1. There were basically two types of delegate candidates:
2. Now the non-pauls CHOSE to be non-pauls (uncommitted is VERY disingenuous)
3. The non-pauls, who are obviously supporters of the OTHER candidates banding together, won the top 15 spots in each precinct (with like 4 exceptions out of 105).
4. So, under the rule that only the top 15 are chosen at each precinct, of ALL the 105 delegates who go to the convention, 101 of them are anti-paul, and a grand total of 4 are pro-paul.
5. Question: We Won?
