The Democratic primary wasn't rigged — despite the best efforts of Bernie Sanders's staffers in Nevada. On Monday, CBS News published a postmortem on the Vermont senator's campaign, which includes this anecdote about how Sanders's Silver State director Joan Kato prepared her team for caucus day:

At one point shortly before the caucuses, she instructed staff to buy double-sided coins — in case coin-flips were needed to decide any of the caucuses in the event of a tie, according to staffers.

The report does not specify whether staffers followed this instruction. But according to Nevada political reporter Jon Ralston, it wouldn't have made any difference, either way.

Anyhow, now that "Sanders actually won the primary" truthers have evidence that their own campaign had a Machiavellian streak — and that exit polls oversample youth voters — maybe we can all get back to complaining about things that are genuinely rigged, like our criminal justice system or this Ford F150.
