  1. Thank you for posting this.

    It is interesting to observe who lines up with who.

    I will remember who lined up with Jeb Bush.

  2. Kabuki theater; and all for naught.

    BTW in case you are playing the game, Ted Cruz is not even a legal candidate.

    Not a natural born citizen as the game requires.

    But the rules for Kabuki theater have been ignored for so long, “at this point what does it matter”!

  3. Why bother taking time to comment on blogs if your attitude is “at this point what does it matter”?

  4. A few things

    -I thought delegates were awarded based on which delegates won, not which candidate won.

    If I’m right, somebody could win the Presidential race but not get any delegates.

    If it is based on the presidential candidate, that’s going to be a problem for some of these people.

    What the hell is wrong with these campaigns?

    Trump is the only one who could get three delegates?

    -What’s up with the Democratic primaries?

    Do delegates not even matter?

    Why would the Sanders campaign not even file anybody?

    I figured Clinton would have her stuff together, but I thought with all the excitement from the Sanders campaign they could get some delegates.

    Maybe they’re more into Twitter or something. . .

  5. Nevermind the second point.

    I see Sanders has delegates now.

    Even O’Malley has some!

  6. **What the hell is wrong with these campaigns? Trump is the only one who could get three delegates?**

    Sigh… reading comprehension, folks.

    Cal is only listing the delegates from McHenry County.

    Most of the candidates (Paul/Santorum campaigns did not) filed full slates of delegates.

    They’re just not from McHenry County.
