It's for real!
OTOH, if you're CNN, nothing between New York and California matters, because after all, we're just a bunch of toothless, racist, uniformed and deplorable bigots.
In that game, you hauled some major product of State A to State B by truck. It might be corn from Iowa to somewhere, wheat from North Dakota to somewhere else, Bullshit from New York to where-ever, etc.
What I learned from that game were where the states were, what the capitols of those states were, etc.
To this very day, I can still name all 50 states, put them in their correct location as well as name every single capitol city of all 50 states.
I did, but I only screwed up the candidate's state, which is a far cry from not knowing where the state itself is.
Funny, because at first I was going to put the totally corrupt Menendez in NJ. Then for whatever reason, I said to myself, "NJ is corrupt enough, what with Cory Booker as a Senator."
So I then put the thoroughly corrupt Menendez in MD, which was incorrect.
What that means is that NJ has TWO thoroughly corrupt and despicable Senators, not just one.
It was no "electronics issue."
Someone at CNN wrote it, his/her editor approved it, then they went on the air with it!
It appears to be one of those touch screen things where you touch the state and the name is displayed. In that case, whoever programmed it just made a mistake.
Yet they aired it!
Yet even after that, his/her editors were too clueless to see it and correct it.
Then CNN went LIVE with it!
How many clueless people does it take to make a clueless network?
You touch the screen and you hope it all works. Kind of like someone who sit's there looking like a fool when their remote feed doesn't work.
It won't be the last mistake you see tonight...regardless of the network.
