The Associated Press — which we already know enjoys "100% reporting incorrectly" — is calling the race for Barack Obama, saying that, according to their math, he's already won…
Barack Obama effectively clinched the Democratic presidential nomination Tuesday, based on an Associated Press tally of convention delegates, becoming the first black candidate ever to lead his party into a fall campaign for the White House.
Funny thing is, they never get around to showing us their numbers or where exactly 39.5 delegates popped up from since this morning.
But I did read it on my computer screen, so it must be 100% correct.
Update: More on the AP's math. They added this illustrative bit of pseudo-information…
The AP tally was based on public commitments from delegates as well as more than a dozen private commitments. It also included a minimum number of delegates Obama was guaranteed even if he lost the final two primaries in South Dakota and Montana later in the day.
