  • I love loophole shows.

    9.1
    This show exposes some of the legal loopholes we live in. I was surprised that the delegates when picked can vote for whoever they want to, basically invalidating the who process.

    I honestly think that candidates should be chosen by popular vote, as the primary process and electoral college are seriously flawed.

    I look at what I saw and then read blogs that say that no matter who wins the primaries tonight, that the super delegates have already told one candidate that they have made up their mind. If that is the case, why bother if a handful of people can decide who wins and our votes are useless.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Judge Brown: I agree with Mr Shore. Whatever one wants to call this nomination process, it's anything but democratic. Two political parties pulling the strings. It's like going to a fast food restaurant and being told you can have whatever you want; the menu is fixed. That having been said, being a private organization, the DNC is free to set its own rules. The only real recourse the people have, I suppose, is to vote Republican. And everyone wonders how we ended up with the likes of George Bush. Motion denied. Everybody loses.

    • Judge Sanders: You can't sue food or drugs. How can anybody sue food or drugs?
      Carl: We're suing the Food and Drug Administration, Your Honor. The FDA.
      Judge Sanders: What the hell is that?
      Carl: That would be the agency in charge of your meds, judge. And I would suspect somebody very much like yourself - or Denny - is in charge of that department.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • When Denny talks to Alan about living with his new found love on a ranch, he stands up and says "I'm a Rugged Man!" which is an allusion to his famous performance of the Elton John song Rocket Man at the 1978 Sci-Fi Awards.

    • When Carl told the witness on the stand that "special orders don't upset him", this was a reference to the Burger King commercials from the '70s in which the song goes "Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce. Special orders don't upset us. All we ask is that you let us serve it your way."
