• Clinton Attempts to Overtake Democracy by Petition

    It's so heartwarming to see the little guy standing up against The Man and his evil, oppressive, mutually-agreed-upon-beforehand rules…

    The Clinton campaign is circulating an e-mail petition to supporters that calls on the Democratic party to seat the delegates from Florida and Michigan at the Democratic National Convention in August.

    Just to recap: Clinton won the primary contests in those states, but Florida and Michigan flouted party rules, so both candidates had pledged not to campaign there, and Obama's name was not even on the ballot in Michigan.

    Nevertheless, a spokesman for the Clinton campaign, said that over 100,000 people have signed the petition, which was sent out via e-mail late Wednesday night.

    100,000 e-signatures in a day? Jesus! That's a lot! Very impressive.

    That means she collected nearly as many e-signatures as my cousin did in his efforts to get the FDA to reclassify marijuana as a vegetable. And almost half as quickly.

    I'm certain her petition will be just as effective.
