Campaign 2012: Tuesday Feels Like Monday

Welcome to Tuesday!  I know it feels like Monday!  Since my column on Friday, there has been a lot happening in the political world – it was a busy weekend just keeping up with it!

The person who made that statement should be fired. When you hire inexperienced children to work in an organization, these things happen. Continue reading
