THE QUICK BROWSE FIREFOX JUMPED OVER THE LAZY BLOG*
The new Quickbrowse for Firefox is up at quickbrowse.com, together with a one-minute demo video. Because it’s integrated as a Firefox add-on, it works with almost all Web sites – saving time by combining any sites you visit daily into a single combined page. All free, of course.
* It occurs to me some of you – perhaps most of you – may have no idea what this headline refers to. And I’m curious to know. So here is the world’s shortest (one-question) survey – designed with SurveyMonkey.com in two minutes – to find out. Please click here to let me know. Thanks!
Jill: ‘What is the DNC going to do to solve the Florida/Michigan problem that its rules contributed to?’
☞ We’re going to do the only possible thing: Stick to the rules (unless both campaigns agree on how they’d like them changed).
These are rules everyone agreed to before the game started – and before anyone knew which states (if any) would break them or which candidates would thereby be disadvantaged.
The rules do allow either state to do a re-vote . . . the DNC can’t force them to – or not to.
Here‘s the background posted a few weeks ago.
But here’s the thing to focus on: we have two superb candidates. The Democratic turnout has been amazing. If we keep our eye on the ball – and come together when the primary is over, as our two candidates have pledged to do, regardless of the outcome – we will win the White House in November, widen our hair-thin majority in the Senate, stanch the rightwing slide of the Judiciary, and begin to get America back on a progressive, hopeful track.
It would have been good to have the presumptive nominee sooner. But June – the likely endpoint – is time enough. That’s when Bill Clinton clinched it in 1992.
NOT THAT THERE’S ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT
Can I say one thing? Every time I hear one or the other of the two candidates confirm that Barack is not a Muslim, I keep expecting them to say, ‘Not that there’s anything wrong with being Muslim. The vast majority of America’s millions of Muslims are hard-working, patriotic, tax-paying citizens like the rest of us.’ Maybe that goes without saying – but I thought I’d say it anyway.
