Good riddance, political consultants

If we can criminalize prostitution, why can’t we outlaw political campaign consultants? Maybe if we could, we wouldn’t have had to endure those gawdawful campaign ads that crawled out from their minds’ darkest recesses.

Which is worse: Romney's 'binders' or Obama's 'optimal?'

Wow, you’d think that Republican presidential candidate Romney set fire to a battered women’s shelter when he said he had a “binder” of qualified women to appoint to his cabinet as Massachusetts governor.
