A number of pro-Clinton bloggers are getting very worked up about Florida and Michigan. Among other things, they profess to be totally mystified why scheduling rules violations in these two states cost them the right to seat delegations, while other (more minor) violations of the same rules in other states caused nowhere near the same penalty.

Well, let me clear that up for them. That's happening because that's what a committee with one of Clinton's top advisors on it voted to do. And he voted in favor of the proposal.

They also say they're very upset about the voters in those states being disenfranchised. Strangely, they don't seem nearly so worked up about the Obama supporters in Michigan who were effectively disenfranchised because he'd honored the Democratic HQ's request to take his name off the ballot, and Hillary didn't.
