So, to protest this development, to our chagrin, Mediadump must endorse Yellow Dog.

Hillaryland is clearly playing the Eurasian strategy. She is kicking ass right now, with Europe firmly in her control and her armies rolling a swath of destruction through Central Asia. She is incredibly well financed, milking the five extra armies she's getting and cashing in her Risk cards to set up a national campaign to bring home the nomination on Super Tuesday. However, as is often the case, she has overextended herself, and though she is dominating the board, she has too many border territories to defend.
ObamaWorld on the other hand, has clearly staked out a firm spot in South America, making some headway in Africa, nibbling away at Hillary's North African territories, but spending most of his time advancing up north into uncontested North America, a territory where one can dream big, and bring in new voters without having to be too aggressive or spend too many resources in being negative.
Edwardszone, on the other hand, is on the ropes, reduced to Australia, with the Hillary Machine bearing down from Siam; nonetheless Edwardszone gamely attempts to hold onto Indonesia by relying on his solid base of angry, agrarian populism. He doesn't have nearly as many resources as Hillaryland or ObamaWorld, but he is reserving his forces for a big push into Asia once Hillaryland is weakened by her current attacks on ObamaWorld.
The New Hampshire primaries clearly represents all that makes Risk the greatest game of strategic world conquest and most effective means to sever lifelong friendships: the doubleteam. This is clearly represented by Edwardszone current unspoken alliance with ObamaWorld to obliterate Hillaryland by depicting themselves as agents of change while Hillaryland represents the forces of the "Status Quo." Hillaryland, desperate to weaken ObamaWorld, tries to bait Edwardszone to do his dirty work for her -- but it won't work, because Edwardszone knows that if Siam doesn't fall, he'll be spending the rest of his life in East Australia litigating traffic tickets.
Now, does this analogy illuminate anything profound about the Primary? No. But it does allow me to show what happens when you doubleteam someone in Risk: she cries.

In celebration of the NFL Draft tomorrow, the most exciting event in American football, here is a montage of the most egregious draft blunders of the 20th Century (coincidentally, all of which were made by the New York Jets). Even if you don't like football or have no idea who these guys are, it is still amusing to see the unvarnished misery and despair of Jets fans as they watch their team get flushed down the toilet with idiotic picks. (not only did the Jets pass on Dan Marino, but also Warren Sapp).

Hi, I`m Manny Ramirez. I bought this AMAZING grill for about $4,000 and I used it once... But I never have the time to use it because I am always on the road. I would love to sell it and you will get an autographed ball signed by me =] Enjoy it, Manny Ramirez.
Currently, the latest bid is at $99,999,999.99. For some reason, I imagine E-Bay will have to do some housekeeping soon to determine the authentic bids from the fraudulent ones.
To see the bid, and Manny Ramirez posing next to his grill, click here.
