I must have some kind of political sixth sense that is currently untapped…
On January 7, 2012, I posted an article calling for Rep. Gabrielle Giffords to resign, stating that it’d be in the best interest of the people she represented for her to step aside and let someone else take her seat and provide some real representation. About two weeks later, she announced her resignation.
And on Monday, April 9, I posted an open letter to Rick Santorum that said the best thing for him and his family, especially his daughter Bella, would be to end his campaign. The next day, Santorum announced he’d be "stepping aside".
Both have made courageous and carefully considered decisions, without doubt. And they were, arguably, decisions for the better. I doubt either of Giffords or Santorum have actually read my blog, so perhaps this is just purely coincidence.
