Keich Whicker (who covers the county for The Telegraph) and I were just talking about some politicians' penchant for offering relatively ridiculous answers to problems, both existent and non, mostly because they're crowd pleasers.
And it reminded us both of "The Monorail" episode of The Simpsons. Of course The Simpsons, along with heavy drinking and Wikipedia, answers all of life's pertinent questions.
My point is, don't take any wooden nickels this election season. Look for substance.
Also, I'm not entirely sure what the copyright status is on Simpson's footage through YouTube, so, just for good measure, go see the new Simpson's Movie, opening July 27.
