You Might Say That

The Sun reports that the money race for governor continues to beat previous records in Maryland.

At the same time, you'll be shocked to learn that the number of homeless in Montgomery County is actually going up and the state of Maryland is cutting funding for pregnant women and children. But our leaders are doing everything they can to address the challenges facing low income residents, right?

You might say that politicians angling for higher office spend a lot of time and political capitol on the issues that matter to potential or current donors. You might say that. I couldn't possibly comment.
