Letter to the Editor

Representative David McKinley: I’m guessing you’ve not seen video of a helmeted Gov. Michael Dukakis’ posing in a U.S. Army tank, shooting himself not in the proverbial foot, but closer to his head. Visual imagery dominates contemporary politics; so (unlike Bill Clinton) I admittedly inhaled your candy-assed, faux-internship ad on TV. I really expected you […]
