WOMEN = DAYCARE?…. Jamison Foser flags the online poll running right now on U.S. News’ “Washington Whispers” website. It asks readers:

Who’d run the best daycare?

If you had a choice of four daycare centers run separately by Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton, and Nancy Pelosi, which would you choose for your kids?

The poll features a picture of bobble-head dolls for each of the women, in front of a movie poster for “Mister Mom.”

I can’t imagine what U.S. News was thinking. Would it ever occur to them, even for a moment, to ask who would run the best daycare center: Barack Obama, John McCain, Joe Biden, or John Boehner?
