From reader John:

Keep up the good work on Elizabeth Warren, what a hypocrite.

Saw this on the road in Richmond, VA. This bumper sticker could be translated as:

“Warning, close-minded person on board. Will not listen to reason. Will revert to nonsensical ad hominem attacks if he disagrees with you.”

There is a common misconception that Elizabeth Warren is the Democratic nominee for Senate against Scott Brown.

She is not.

There is a primary contest on September 6.  And the only other announced candidate just filed her petitions:

U.S. Senate candidate Marisa DeFranco will drop off more than 10,000 signatures to the Secretary of...

After a scathing critique of NEHGS...
