The Corner

Senator. Senator.

My eyes are starting to glaze over at the sight and sound of the word “senator.” Senator McCain. Senator Obama. The senators running. Senator Webb takes himself out of the running. Senator Biden lobbies. Senator Brownback does something with “Catholic” on it. Senator Clinton works for her money. Senator. Senator. Senator. Senator.

I think pols should be assumed senator until proven innocent. No need for the word. Just leave the title out unless they’re something else.

I miss “Governor.” Something comforting about that one.
