Fifteen years is a long time. As you search through the liberal blogs looking for interesting tidbits about me, some of them will bring up a get-out-the-vote mailing I did fifteen years ago. Five years ago I wrote a blog post about it. I fought the state elections board to a standstill for four years. […]
