There seems to be a continuing and sever disconnect here. This story ran several days ago, many people posted comments on it, and now the comments are not connected to this story. I am sure thaey are alive and well in the archives and via other links, but it seems obvious to me that when the readers seem to overwhelmingly cite the bozo-like characteristics of various elected officials, the comments go away.
