Florida and Michigan: Stop Whining
So, Florida and Michigan decide to move up their primaries in opposition to the wishes of the political parties, and the parties responded by penalizing the states, either by reducing the number of delegates or refusing to seat them entirely. Now the states want a do over? Screw ’em. If memory serves, the states were warned what would happen if they moved up their primaries, and they went and did it anyway. Mewling now about how they really should be represented is to suggest they not be penalized for not following the rules. And that’s just rewarding bad behavior.
So suck it up, Florida and Michigan. Next time don’t schedule your primaries in January. For now, you’re getting what you knew you would get. Which is: Nothing.
