Special “Mission Semi-Accomplished” Edition
The IT fun-foilers at Ms. Raitt’s place may seem to have thought they were sucking the life out of our little jest by removing comments entirely from her Potemkin “blog” — which now consists of her “articles” alone (which themselves are rich in comedy).

It’s something that I’m quite passionate about however, as I believe, however naïve it may seem, that such efforts are essential to creating a greater sense of engagement between citizens and their elected representatives.
Update2: The laughable irony of the comment noted below (screen-capped from Turner’s blog) should be rather self-evident, but it says something to the demented nature of his critics that are it would seem quite entirely oblivious to the clarion call of cognitive dissonance.
