Kevin Drum Is Shrill!

He writes, apropos of the sewer that is John Harris, Mike Allen and the rest of the staff of The Politico:

The Washington Monthly: MAKE IT STOP.... From the front page of The Politico on Monday:

Romney spent $300 on makeup 'consulting'

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney recorded $300 in payments to a California company that describes itself as "a mobile beauty team for hair, makeup and men's grooming and spa services."

Romney spokesman Kevin Madden confirmed that the payments — actually two separate $150 charges — were for makeup, though he said the former Massachusetts governor had only one session with Hidden Beauty of West Hills, Calif.

Seriously. Can we just stop this stuff? Does anyone really think that the problem with presidential campaign coverage is that it isn't vapid and half-witted enough already? Jeebus.
