Building rapport they are

Bill Dedman, writing for MSNBC, rats out 144 journalists who made political contributions from 2004 through the start of the 2008 campaign.

When questioned about their contributions, a few journalists admit it was a mistake (some say unwittingly so) and apologize. I am inclined to give them a free pass. Others raise the proverbial middle finger. I am inclined to hold up a mirror - facing them. Yet others made excuses that would make Bill Clinton proud . . .

. . . My father wrote the check and I (Calvert Collins - pictured) was just building rapport with candidates. Heck, where was Ms. Collins when I was in high school? (Very rude of you to say "she wasn't born!")
