Except the argument was there before Palin and intensified after Palin. I distinctly remember not thinking much of it before and thinking "yeah, but what if" after. You're not going to convince me that Bernie at essentially the same age does not seem like an old dude.

5.5 years in a POW camp. That's like smoking for 20 years.

TMZ political correspondent Tracey has spoken. You need to calm down.

When two others split the remaining 55-60%, Trump ends up winning all or nearly all of the delegates for that state.
The winner takes all states is where the math gets blurry. What I don't understand is the distribution of delegates from the proportional states. North Carolina makes sense, but how does Trump win Missouri by .2 points over Cuz(40.9 - 40.7) and gets 25 delegates to Cruz's 5? A similar scenario in Illinois. Trump wins 39 points to cruz's 30 points, but he gets 59 delegates and Cruz gets 9?

I already searched for it earlier and couldn't find where Will took the bet, only where Peacock made the offer
