Dollars to Fried Doughnuts We're Talkin' real Simoleons now!

This makes me incredibly happy.

Link broken, lets try this *&^% again.

If that doesn't work I'm cutting and pasting the whole darn thing:

The Rudy Story

Over $50 million for a single delegate.

As the LA Times notes, that's the worst dollar for delegate record in American presidential history. The previous winner was John Connally who spent $11 million for a single delegate in 1980.

And at that rate Rudy would have needed $60 billion to win the nomination.

On the other hand, 9/11 did change everything.
