Free Trip to D.C.

Apparently Arianna Huffington — resolute guardian of her website’s fiscal rectitude and limited resources — has made a mess for herself by promising free bus rides to anyone who wants to attend Jon Stewart’s rally in D.C.

I think conservatives who’d just like a lovely trip to the nation’s capital should take her up on the offer as well. Spend as much — or as little — time as you like at the rally. Huffington says she’ll supply as many buses as it takes.
