      really guarantee anything by way of re-establishing some of the key standards that drew my participation here in the first place.  

      By the time next year rolls around, this place may have suffered the worst possible fate which would be that it would have low traffic and be full of hyperbolee and inuendo too.

      The breathless hand-wringing about Super Delegates is low information meets Godzilla politics - the failure to understand what a brokered convention is and why that mechanism still exists {the simple answer is that we can't just call it a tie and go on to the general btw} - the lack of context or information being applied to snap judgments - it is all getting kind of ridiculous and old.

      I have to wonder what kind of scortched earth this crowd will leave behind and whether or not it is worth riding it out or even coming back if I do choose to take a break.  I don't know.  I used to learn a lot pretty much everyday on this blog - now I feel like I can go a week or more without learning which isn't to say that I know so much that there is nothing left to learn - it is more that more and more I feel like I am dealing with a greater percentage of people who don't share my values about learning, well-sourced information and reasoned debate.  Again - that is cool - every playground changes and I am used to moving...  :)

      Cheers - Happy Friday.
