THIS Just Dropped Off The Radar Screen, Didn't It?

Remember all the brouhaha about Michigan and Florida and whether or not their delegates at the Democratic National Convention were going to have any votes, because the states moved their primaries to a date before the national dems said they could? Remember how that was a big deal a few months ago?

And then it disappeared.

What happened? Well, here's what happened. And if you don't want to follow the link, look at the labels I've attached to this post and see if you can figure it out.

That is entirely different from making a rule, establishing consequences, and then disregarding both.

This is exactly why Europeans should *not* comment on American elections. They know not of which they speak.

Obama needs those states and he doesn't need them staying home in November over internal bickering. So of course they let them vote. Did you really think it would be anything else?

Of course I didn't. In fact, I long predicted that this is exactly what would happen.

Doesn't make it any less pathetic.
