That video is priceless. I can't believe the admiral answered his idiotic questions with a straight face.

Sad thing is, that Congressman is about as smart as most libs.

Generally the territories go to the party leaders' pick (for instance Guam's governor Calvo endorsed Mitt) so it's definitely not that surprising. I think candidates overall should focus on them more than they do, though.

Well, Wikipedia gave him credit for the win. Lit up the map yellow for him:

You elect people for delegates, the wikipedia article didn't update a delegate switched his allegiance.

That would be Congressman Hank Johnson. Here's the really stupid part: He got re-elected after this went all over the news and youtube.

"The video of Johnson's comments became an internet sensation in the week prior to the 2010 elections, which he went on to win."

If I hadn't heard this myself I would have thought it was from a comedy show, like SNL or something. I hope there are a few libs that are a little smarter than that guy..
