We very, very rarely venture into the swamp of political commentary, preferring instead to let policy makers make fools of themselves, well, themselves. This is an exception because it explains so much. From Professor Ann Althouse of the University of Wisconsin Law School:

Perhaps the headline should have been "...Googly Eyed Edition"
