Liberal blog demonstrates muscle

Can Daily Kos claim victory for Mitt Romney's success in Michigan's primary? We'll have to wait and see for all of the analyses to be completed, but Rasmussen reported that their last Wednesday's poll had Romney beating John McCain by only 1% (26% to 25%) and at a little after 9:00pm on the 15th, NRO had Romney at 35% and McCain at 29%. On the 10th, Markos Moulitsas (Who runs Daily Kos) suggested: "Let's have some fun in Michigan" by throwing votes to Romney (Who is predicted to be a general election loser at 13% preference to McCain's 22% and Mike Huckabee's 21%, so it's very much in the interest of Democrats to keep Romney in the race) and well, Michigan liberals did! Markos suggested that all loyal Kossacks cross party lines and vote in the Republican primary for Romney. As John Bambenek, a Republican, thought that sounded illegal and launched a lawsuit [Incorrect: he filed a letter with the AG] over it, Kagro X used the suit as an excuse to explain in detail why, no it wasn't illegal. In short, Michigan has no restrictions on voters in presidential primaries crossing party lines. So "the Great Orange Satan" (DKos) triumphs again!!! Woo-hoo!

What you libtards failed to grasp with your "reality-based community" rants is that a lawsuit wasn't filed... A one page letter was sent to the AG. If you can't get simple facts right, you'll pardon us if we ignore your legal analyses...

The exact phrase used in DKos was "filed the FEC complaint," which I interpreted as meaning a lawsuit was filed.
I've slapped myself on the wrist for the misinterpretation.
BTW, I added to the PhillyIMC version of this post that CNN's Political Ticker disagrees with the idea that DKos had any effect on the Michigan primary.
