Gail Collins failed to mention that Rand Paul's college escapade included abducting and tying up a young woman before forcing her to bow down to Aqua Buddha. Also, one absolutely cannot separate the effect of massive amounts of anonymous funding by Conservative Big Business from polling results.

I do wish you would skip the focus on 'weird' outliers in politics and instead keep us all better informed about what the REAL issues are and where the candidates stand on them. Focus on who is endorsing and backing the candidates, and on what the candidates' actual track records are.

Fooey on the horse race aspect.

Re: Mrs. Thomas

Why is everyone missing the obvious? Mrs. Thomas is garnering (free!) international advertising for her new organization. Just wait for the "Anita Hill still won't apologize" fund-raising letters!
