If you're James T. Kirk, you reprogram the simulator so it's possible to rescue the ship. Yes, it's cheating but you're James Testicles Kirk and the rules don't apply to you because you're the star of the damn movie.

Ah-hah, but if they're already winning these districts, shouldn't that count for something? Yes. And it does, this proposal would just give them the added advantage of two additional electoral votes in each state that implements it. According to the article, this would have swung the election for Romney. If you look at an electoral map that's divided up by Congressional District, it's mostly red. Romney lost because a lot of these districts are sparsely populated.
The idea behind Plan B is to 'level' the playing field so that it's possible to win the next election without, you know, persuading anyone. Look, I love me some Captain Kirk as much as the next guy, and when you're going up against a revenge crazed Ricardo Mantalban you've got to do what you've got to do but this is just election rigging. Mitt Romney didn't lose the 2012 election because the rules were unfair, he lost because he didn't have any good ideas and kind of acted like a dick.

vagaries of the electoral college that made this day possible."
