The Bully Pulpit (My First and Last Diary)

I'm sad to write this. Never before have a had any incentive to write a full-length diary. Sadly, this is my first and last diary here at MyDD.

The frontpage post that Clinton raised 2.5 mil after winning Penn is bullshit. There is no other possibility.

To be honest I would vote for any Democrat in the general. Hillary, Obama or Kerry, I really don't care. Any one of them is better then a Rethug.

Todd, you know as well as I know that Hillary did not "spontaneously" raise 2.5 million after she won Pennsylvania. That is bullshit. She released this number to assure those who supported her that she still remains viable in the primary. But the fact is that she still has no chance of winning the primary.

Look, I love MyDD. I come here two, three or four times a day to assuage my political addiction. However, a post such as this one is utter BULLSHIT. You made no attempt to link to the information so we could judge for ourselves and there is not even a small attempt at critical thinking.

I hate to say it but I don't think I will come back to MyDD for a long time. That being said, I do liked it here. This place was my home when I first discovered the emergent democracy of the web. But Todd, using unfounded campaign propaganda as a post is just as bad as any mainstream media broadcast. There are better sources of info out there. Dailykos, Swing State Project and many local blogs rely on fact and reason in their political writings.

Todd, your post is nothing more than overly-emotional display based upon zero factual information.

Goodbye MyDD.

I'm sorry you feel that strongly about something you could easily have looked up yourself:

It's reporting on the fly, and it's not always perfect. Don't blame the messenger because you don't like the message.

Boy, are you wrong

Immediately after the race was called for Hill, I received an email and a request to donate.  I donated right away, and a group of Hill supporters I know also donated.  With the internet, you can easily raise a couple of million dollars in three hours.

Between 9:23PM and 11:48 (central) I have logged the donation counter on Obama's site and there has been 10,346 NEW donors to his campaign. So, I wouldn't doubt it that Obama himself raised somewhere in the neighborhood of $2 million tonight.

Bye bye


Don't let the door hit you.

Part of me thinks that I should try to discourage you, but the reason that you give for your departure is far too insignificant.

You haven't made a single comment on a diary all year.

I, personally, cannot think of a better way to celebrate your chosen candidates success. I donated to celebrate!

Take Care, Sharon
