The only two non-mediocre things that have happened during the Super Bowl in a decade were the power outage and when dude caught the ball on his hat.

And if your response to that is

~~ BEYONCE!! ~~

you need to take a long, hard look in the mirror.

But the best is that lawyers don't let anyone say "Super Bowl" on TV. It's hysterically ridiculous. The end.

Looks like Romney is out.

I'm old enough to remember when Mitt Romney was thinking about running in 2016.

Testing the waters and finding them awfully cold doesn't seem much like "playing the media" to me.

I am intrigued by the fact that possible presidents were once random people, while their opponents were little kids. So I made this.

There is an awful lot of motivated reasoning in this pro-con for a new Romney run. Which was a problem in the past.

An exhaustive, clever reminder that Super Bowl half-time shows are as dumb as the ads.

Really, the Super Bowl is an exercise in trying to muster enthusiasm about usually mediocre sports, ads, and music.

Hearing reports that a Clinton campaign announcement is slotted for Halloween 2016. Risky.

Is less than a week long enough to carry Clinton to victory in the general? Her team is counting on huge fundraising numbers to help.

Though to be honest, saying "I will minimize the extent to which you have to hear about a presidential election" would earn some votes.
