PROXY WARS….Yesterday’s CW: Leadership comes from the top. Candidates deserve scrutiny for what their supporters say and are responsible for forthrightly disowning incendiary remarks. Today’s CW: Christ, we’re tired of this stuff. Can we put the manufactured outrage back under a rock, where it belongs?

I’m not sure which CW I prefer. I’m leaning toward today’s, for obvious reasons, but let’s not let carte blanche go too far. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, but other times it tells you something about the person smoking it. Time and tide, people, time and tide.
