Stop the Presses!

The Hill blog says that Linc Chafee will announce his candidacy for governor on January 4.

No surprise to us. The comments section after the post is already full of partisans hurling flame balls. Sadly, we are a divided nation, and it will be hard to talk sense.

I’ll be impressed by any candidate who promises that when they take off for Iraq to save our troops they will call the Lt. Governor first, just in case it snows. And leave her a set of keys. It’s the responsible thing to do.
