It's the show that never ends

After six long weeks, Pennsylvania Democrats at last get to decide today what's a bigger deal-breaker: not wearing an American flag lapel pin at all times or getting schooled by Sinbad on your recollection of what happened on your trip to Europe.

A serious prediction: Hillary Clinton will win by somewhere between four to eight points, enough to gain a few pledged delegates on Barack Obama but nowhere near the 70-30 blowout that mathematics dictates she'd need to catch up at this stage.

Another serious prediction: Clinton will stay in the race anyway, claiming her Pennsylvania win means she's won the hypothetical Electoral College, or crossed the commander-in-chief threshold at 3 a.m., or something. Two weeks from today, Obama will make up all the lost ground and then some with a crushing victory in North Carolina. But even then, North Carolina will be a red state that voted against Clinton, and therefore it won't be a "significant state," and therefore it somehow won't count, or something.

Finally, an even more serious observation: Getting schooled by Sinbad is worse. No contest. Come on, the dude got off this line: "What kind of president would say, 'Hey, man, I can't go, because I might get shot, but I'm going to send my wife and daughter. Oh, and take a guitar player and a comedian with you, too."

I feel burned, and I was nowhere near that fire.

I think the flag pin is an important issue. We should give serious consideration to amending the constitution. All candidates must have an American flag tattooed somewhere on their body. Bonus Superdelegates will be awarded for creativity.
