Franchise Karma

While I’m sympathetic to complaints about voter disenfranchisement in Florida, as A) voters didn’t choose to move up their primary and risk DNC sanctions and B) the Iowa/New Hampshire primary hegemony definitely needs to be overthrown, given that the proximate result is to bolster the campaign of the less progressive candidate…too bad.  I only wish we could have disenfranchised Florida Republicans too, who went for their most electable candidate.

Just call this penance for disappointing the rest of the country in the last two elections, and enjoy the role of perpetual swing state that guarantees lavish pandering come the general election.
