Tsy: Whenever I read that, I find myself thinking this: The first part of it -- I am obliged to confess I should sooner â¦. is so precious as to negate the main premise.

I just think Mitt's "you called and I'm answering the call" and "it's my duty to run" stuff has gotten tiresome.

Mitt's resentment of Jeb is telling, no?

That's a good idea, JL.

Mike, when you combine the words you and are in a contraction, it's you're, not your. Your is a possessive pronoun. As to email, sorry, but I'm just not interested in an email correspondence with some more »

Every House speaker I have known has made the classic mistake of thinking his actions only play to an inside-the-building audience. So they do things like this -- and then wonder why people are so ske more »

Iowball: Sharpton's past is awfully hard to overlook, I think. As for Trump, after that birther nonsense of last time around, he should be hanging his head in shame. Of course, he's not really thinkin more »

I would certainly agree that we in the media share a goodly part of the blame. Some of us, however, have tried to downplay the caucus. Not saying they don't deserve some coverage, but certainly not ev more »
