Huckabee Succumbs to Mathematics; It's Up to the Superdelegates; Cool Stuff on TV

Mike Huckabee, in spite of all his Colbert, Conan, SNL, and Tyra bumps, finally conceded the nomination race to John McCain. His only hope was to win the rest of the contests to block McCain from clinching the race, making it so that the decision would be made by the GOP's non-existent superdelegates at the Republican National Convention. This was not to be. If it's any consolation, Huckabee saved the world from a Mitt Romney nomination. Bless you, Governor Huckabee.

We're now knocking on wood that ol' Willard doesn't turn up as McCain's running mate.

After big wins yesterday, Hillary Clinton is still in the race. Of course you all know this already. Lots of pundits have been saying that if Clinton wins the nomination, she would have to extend an invitation to Barack Obama to be her running mate to unite a divided Democratic Party. The same cannot be said if Obama gets the nomination, as Clinton has (rather, the Clintons have) cast too much doubt on Obama for her to be his potential Vice President.

Moving on...

The season finale of the new Terminator show was fantastic! They've one-upped Lost with the simplest form of time travel awesomeness - stalking one's past self:



Speaking of temporal displacement of the psyche (like Desmond in Lost), here's Homer's "Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind":
