  1. Hillary Clinton’s Irrational Numbers:

    For much of the campaign, while super-delegates stampeded to Obama’s side, Clinton’s contention became that she, not Obama, possessed the popular vote. Her number estimates 17 million voted for her. Sufficiently fuzzy math might support that estimation if you count Michigan and Florida and take some liberties with the caucus state estimates. But since popular vote doesn’t elect a president anyway, it’s a moot point.

    In mathematics, the definition of an irrational number is a number that cannot be represented as a simple fraction. This is a number that has neither repeating nor terminating decimals. As the primary season ends, Clinton’s campaign becomes more and more like an irrational number: never terminating. The other definition of “irrational” may explain why that’s not happening.

    Irrational (adj.)

    1. Not endowed with reason.

    2. Affected by loss of usual or normal mental clarity; incoherent, as from shock.

    3. Marked by a lack of accord with reason or sound judgment:

    So when it comes to that 3:00 a.m. call, it’s less likely to be someone calling Hillary Clinton and more likely to be some bat-shit crazy person with nothing else to do crank calling the White House. Someone irrational. Word…
