On behalf of the Swampland regulars, as well as everyone at Time.com, I offer thanks and props to Mudcat Saunders for his blogging this week. His time here was brief but, I would say, electric — for him and for all the readers and commenters he attracted. He staged what might be the greatest comeback in blog history — having won over in just five days some of his fiercest critics among Swampland readers. More importantly, he engaged in informative dialogue on a number of issues, especially the politics of rural voters. Nice work.
