A Slight Repurposing

As the Slog to the White House has dragged on, this blog has been distracted, especially by the escalation of disingenuous transmissions from Planet Hillary. It's time to turn focus back to what got me interested in blogging in the first place. I can argue repeatedly that including Michigan in The Biggest Vote Total Ever®, but Planet Hillary remains a place largely devoid of a reality-based community. (h/t Pandagon) Is it too much to ask that Hillary supporters be at least a little inspired by the fact that we nominated a Black man for President less than 50 years after the Civil Rights Act? Apparently.

I've given Hillary my suggestion. It went like this:

    And now it is time to stand down. It is time to rally your supporters behind the party's nominee. To do that, you need to concede.
Of course as soon as I hit SUBMIT the site took me to a donation page.

Up until now the next best thing for Dems has been for the race to end. Everywhere but Planet Hillary it has. Now comes time to concentrate on defeating McCain in the general. Plus I want to blog more of what inspires me: education policy, Constitutional law, local government. Yes, I'm weird that way.

I won't say this is the last time the blog mentions the primary, but for the most part, I wish to move on, even if Hillary doesn't.

One last gift before we do, h/t Donklephant:
