"The more election seasons I go through the more I’m convinced that the people whose job it is to comment professionally on these things have themselves wheeled into a secret laboratory to have their memories wiped every year before the election, so that they may start completely afresh." -LabRat at Atomic NerdsSome other Shocking Discoveries made for the Very First Time Again so far this silly season:

- Mitt Romney is not, in fact, a conservative, except when compared to the average Massachusetts Democrat. (And compared to them, even Che Guevara seems a little reactionary.)
- Early straw polls bear so little resemblance to final results that it's a wonder Orrin Hatch hasn't called for an antitrust investigation of Ames, Iowa.
