Hijacking Four Delegates

I was initially puzzled by the following statement from Harold Ickes:
"Hijacking four delegates is not a good way to start down the path of party unity."
I mean, why four, why not just say however many you want to say, which has got to be more than four. Why not 300?

Oh, because Obama has hijacked four delegates the same way that Osama hijacked four planes? That is so clever.

Worry not about the SUV or truck that you can't afford to put gas in and can't trade because its value has plummeted, the house you can neither pay for nor sell, the impending bankruptcy that you can no longer declare. Just relax and and let these simple, soothing little associations set you free. There will be plenty of them.

This is Harold Ickes who wanted to plant European Jews in Nowhere, Alaska come World War 2? Yeah, he's full of clever ideas, all right.
