This editorial written by an Eagle Dead-Ender, as usual, is poorly thought out and makes little sense.

"And for some reason, not enough people think about the fact that those who vote in primaries are stealing the voices of those who don't."

Huh, is this guy serious?

"We have spent too much time looking at John Edwards'$400 haircut, but even that attention did not submerge his elegance and grace."

John Edwards's elegance and grace? Is this guy serious?

"Let's face it: People stay away from the primaries because they don't want to get letters asking them for donations."

Again, is this guy serious? When was the last time anyone who voted in a primary was singled out for campaign mailings that every other registered voter didn't also get?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
