"Here’s your mission, people. Start to check out the Senate races — there are going to be 35 next year, and 10 or 12 might involve real competition. You may want to send a few of the candidates donations — control of Congress hangs in the balance. The rest of the pack aren’t going to require much attention. Unless, of course, one of the parties doesn’t seem prepared to produce a nominee. Then you know what you have to do."
My goodness, Gail is assigning us one heck of a mission. With that job in hand, we needn't bother thinking about something so unpleasant as nearly 1,500 civilians dying from a sarin attack on the outskirts of Damascus.
My mission to Gail: Get up off your couch, take a chance, and write something relevant. You're almost as cute as Andy Rosenthal, and it's growing tiresome.
