i couldn't agree more

If you've been following the news, then you know about all the controversy over Mighigan and Florida's primaries. Briefly, they broke the rules by moving up their primaries, so the DNC said their delegates wouldn't count. But the states still had their primaries early. Now some are trying to get those delegates counted anyway or figure out a way to do a re-vote.

Two CNN contributers have recently written columns about this topic. I couldn't agree with them more.

Glenn Beck: Too Bad, Michigan and Florida

After all, what would it say about personal responsibility in this country if we allow the two states that broke all the rules to end up having the biggest say of all?

Roland S. Martin: Florida, Michigan Don't Deserve Revote

No. Enough. Let's end this madness and tell Florida and Michigan that they had their shot. They blew it. It's time to move on and let the people who know how to play by the rules get on with this process. They made their bed. Now sleep in it.

I think it's a shame that so many people voted and those votes won't count, but state officials broke the rules. The people of those two states should be mad at their state officials. By no stretch of the imagination were these elections fair.


  1. i like your floating asher :) he's fun.

  2. I totally have to agree. It's like being a parent. You tell them the rules and then tell them the consequences. Then you punish them based on what they do. You can't call do-overs if you don't like the results.
