Quiet Cycle

In today’s Roll Call the riveting news is of a potential Steny Hoyer candidacy for governor of Maryland, which his office showed no interest in.

Chris Van Hollen’s 2004 Republican opponent is apparently organizing for another impossible mission against him, though given the huge spread in the race one wonders why this is news.

And in what has to be a low point for political, gossip journalism, Roll Call started a front page article about and displayed before and after pictures of a senator’s teeth.

For obvious reasons, links are unnecessary in this post.
