IRV mailing party adventures

The Hitler- Stalin - Washington example continues to exist (notwithstanding 
the idiot/moronic ignorance of Condorct head to head tables by IRV fanatics 
(and their idiot/moronic supporters))---

34 HWS
33 SWH
16 WHS
16 WSH

W loses using IRV. Hitler beats Stalin 50-49.  Civil war results ???

W beats H head to head 65-34.
W beats S head to head 66-33.

That is, IRV will wipe out a compromise choice somewhat often (how often ???) 
and produce an extremist who will thus claim some sort of *majority* mandate 
for his/her extremism (especially legislative body elections).
