Politico hasn’t been this excited since Herman Cain. Looking at the tweets from attendees at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was nauseating enough. Obama’s speech was fine, he had some good one liners and some cheap shots, but it certainly wasn’t the funniest speech ever: I just witnessed our President deliver the funniest speech…

Recently, I have been reflecting on the power of choice. As a citizen activist, I work to ensure that Americans make fully informed voting choices.  This attitude carries over to my selection of post topics.
