And there, too, on the stage was the man who as a teen at an elite prep school led a gang of boys in holding down a schoolmate whose haircut Mitt deemed too effeminate.

It's possible I might have to post a little less than usual leading up to the presidential election on November 6, because I am now becoming a little consumed, and I really don't want to turn this blog into an ugly-political-story-of-the-day bitchfest. Because, really, I could. But the only people who would care are the folks who have already decided they're voting for Obama and everyone else would assume I'm just bitter. I'm not.
