By way of follow-up to that delegate post from last week: Obama won Wyoming 61-38, and won Mississippi 59-39. Not including Mississippi, the New York Times estimates Obama's pledged-delegate lead to be 1,348-1,211. Assuming the Mississippi delegates split 19-14 (which seems like a safe margin, given the popular vote), that'd put us at 1,367-1,225. The remaining states:
- PA: 181 delegates (151 pledged, 30 unpledged)
- GU: 8 delegates (3 pledged, 5 unpledged)
- IN: 79 delegates (66 pledged, 13 unpledged)
- NC: 110 delegates (91 pledged, 19 unpledged)
- WV: 37 delegates (26 pledged, 11 unpledged)
- KY: 55 delegates (47 pledged, 8 unpledged)
- OR: 62 delegates (48 pledged, 14 unpledged)
- PR: 4 delegates (3 pledged, 1 unpledged)
- MT: 23 delegates (15 pledged, 8 unpledged)
- SD: 22 delegates (14 pledged, 8 unpledged)
* - Assuming the pledged delegates split exactly according to the popular vote, which they will not (though they should be relatively close).

A couple of long-form commercials. Neither of them has any particular relation to politics (though you could at least make an argument for the first one), but I enjoyed both of them, so I figured I'd post them here.
The first, an ad for a German energy company called Epuron, has apparently been around for a while (though I just saw it recently).
The second, an ad for Top-Flite golf balls, just came out about a week ago. (Golf.com also managed to snag an interview with D2, the superhero star of the commercial.)
Watch and enjoy... and reminisce fondly about a time when this blog was more than just a once-weekly post containing a couple of videos.
