We seem to get a big mess of confusion in the United States every four years when it comes to presidential elections.
If you want a good read on the topic, you will find that both of the major political parties divvy up their delegates in a moderately unfair fashion in order to nominate a candidate.
According to the 2016 rules, the Dems need 2382 delegates out of 4763 total, of which 712 delegates are unpledged (superdelegates)
According to the 2016 rules, the Republican Party nominee needs 1237 delegates out of 2472 total delegates. But each state gets at least 10 at-large delegates who are not committed and additional ones. Some states are winner-take-all and others apportion their delegates by percentage (sounds fairer to me).

Seth Myers takes a look at the political posturing - the jiggery pokery, as it were - that started immediately after the untimely death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia. He take a few pokes at the GOP debate, then gets in a dig at Marco Rubio, who insists the Constitution be interpreted as it was originally meant - except for the part about the president nominating a Supreme Court justice, of course.

It's silly season again. Perhaps you don't know which candidate for president is closest to your liking. Fortunately, there is a Website that can sort it all out for you. The site will ask you a few demographic questions and then some issue questions. When you are all done you can see which candidate you are closest to. You can also indicate which issues are most important to you and let it overweight them.

It turns out that former Governor Bush rankled Colbert by holding an unauthorized raffle for a ticket to the show. Colbert responds by holding his own raffle, but it's for charity.

Now that 7,000 American men and several drunk farm animals have officially declared their candidacies for President, keeping track of them has never been more confusing or difficult. Luckily, we've put together a "cheat sheet" with "quick trivia" to help the political layperson discuss with confidence the nuances of each male candidate's views and legitimacy. Feel free to use any and all of these in kicky water cooler conversations about politics this summer, and impress your friends!

Citizens in Xalapa, Mexico have quite a decision to make on July 7, when they cast their vote for a new mayor. One of their choices is a cat who vows to 'rid the city of rats.' Literally, but also in the sense of corrupt politicians. In response to politics as usual, two students in the eastern Mexican city have nominated a cat named Morris for mayor.
If elected, they say Morris will eat, sleep, yawn and continue other cat activities as usual, which is what makes him a good candidate.
If Facebook likes are any indicator of popularity, then Morris is actually the lead in the race - by a lot. As of Saturday evening, Candigato Morris has over 70,000 likes, crushing the human frontrunner Americo Zuñiga's 30,000.
Your most productive day of the week?
