Of course nobody reads blogs and they should just shut the hell up. On the other hand, would this news have come if blogs had not pushed the issue? Some may posit that Brunner and Celeste were never going to get the endorsement anyway so it’s easy for them not to ask for it.

…which would miss the point entirely. This is about forcing the issue to expose an undemocratic insider process that ultimately gives us poorer candidates (Sherrod Brown probably a notable exception). Now nobody but Lee asks for it and ODP will kindly then be “forced” to give him one, based on Chairman Redfern’s previous logic. It’s what kids on the Internet call “democracy FAIL”.

If you agree that ALL candidates, including Lee Fisher, should not seek the ODP endorsement you can take the following action now:

Sign the Senate Primary Pledge Petition!
