RUSH: Do you know that Bernie Sanders is the first Jewish candidate to win a major presidential primary? You hadn’t heard that? Here’s the point: Hillary Clinton tried to stop the first African-American from being elected president. Now she’s trying to stop the first Jewish-American from being elected president. What a bigot! Doesn’t Mrs. Clinton realize she should get out of the way and let these minorities finally have their shot at things?
She tried to stop the first black president; he won. Now she’s trying to stop the first Jewish president, and he just mopped the floor with her. Do you want to know how screwed up the Democrat primary is? Hillary lost in New Hampshire… I don’t even know if Bernie knows this yet. If he doesn’t know, somebody’s gonna have to tell him. Hillary Clinton loses by 22 points and got two more delegates than Bernie Sanders did last night. I’m not kidding you. “Though Bernie Sanders…” This is from The Daily Caller:
“Though Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire primary in a landslide over Hillary Clinton, he will likely receive fewer delegates than she will. Sanders won 60% of the vote, but thanks to the Democratic PartyÂ’s nominating system, [Bernie Sanders] leaves the Granite State with at least 13 delegates while [Hillary] leaves with at least 15 delegates.” Now, what kind of system is that? You go in and you get skunked, you get schlonged, you get landslid’d out by 22 points — and you leave the state with two more delegates than Bernie.
Bernie’s always talking about how this system’s rigged and that system’s rigged and everything else, the economy’s rigged and Wall Street’s rigged. Wait ’til he finds out that New Hampshire was rigged. His reaction is gonna be, “Wait a minute! I got 60% of the vote; she got 38% of it. What do you mean, I got two fewer delegates?” New Hampshire has 24 pledged delegates which are allotted based on the popular vote. Sanders has 13; Clinton has nine. There are two currently allotted to neither, but under committee rules, DNC rules, New Hampshire has eight superdelegates, and Hillary owns them. (chuckling) Don’t you just love it?
