I just love this, if only it would make a difference.
This points out the ludicrousness of the whole situation.
A song for one of those 795 Democratic Party insiders who put the mock in Democracy. “Superdelegate” is available for download (or will be soon) at http://royzimmerman.com/
With apologies to Curtis Mayfield.

SUPERDELEGATE

Superdelegate
Won’t you supersede my decision
Ooo, Superdelegate
I need your…super…vision

I can’t be trusted
To choose my own nominee
Democracy is just too important
To leave it to people like me

So gimme my election
‘Cause it feels good to check that box
And when you determine how it should have turned out
I’ll be right here sucking rocks

‘Cause only when the ballots have all been collected
Can they be corrected

Superdelegate
Won’t you supersede my decision
Ooo, Superdelegate
I need your…super…vision

When your vote is counted
It’s like ten thousand to my one
It’s good to know that my representative
Has such representation

So, do someone a favor
‘Cause you know they’ll remember that
You scratch their back and they’ll scratch yours
It’s his or her tit for your tat

The Democratic Party is too democratic
‘Cause Democrats so erratic

Nineteen-Seventy-Two
The nominee was chosen by the people
And that nominee
Was George McGovern
Ooo

Nineteen-Seventy-Six
The nominee was chosen by the people
And that nominee
Was Jimmy Carter
Ooo

But Nineteen-Eighty-Four
The nominee was chosen by the Superdelegates
And that nominee
Was Walter Mondale!

Superdelegate
Won’t you supersede my decision
Ooo, Superdelegate
I need your…super…imposition
