In a move certain to increase the appeal of Independent Political Report, long-time IPR writer and commenter Jill Pyeatt has worked out a deal with current owner Warren Redlich to sell the political blog to her. “I’m excited about this opportunity”, she said. “I’ve cashed in my retirement savings to do this, as I’m certain my strategy will make this a strong and hugely popular destination for, well, everyone! My plan is simple: everyone can share whatever they want, as long as they remain totally Politically Correct. I worry about all those unhappy Democrats and Republicans who come here looking for an alternative, only to have their view of reality insulted by some of the commenters here.”
The change will take place April 1 of 2017, which will give all of us here a year to practice saying nice things all the time.
