And final question, one for the ladies (woo!): “Do you believe our Party makes an effort to address issues of concern to women?” “Makes an effort”? How about “addresses the concerns of women?”

Sorry, Reince, but No. 1017.10163365 tossed your survey in the trash. Where it belonged.

Days later, though, I got another letter — chosen again! “SPECIAL NOTICE: You have been selected to represent voters in Virginia’s 5th Congressional District.” Sweet. “In your estimation, have the job-creation policies funded by the Obama administration in the past four years been successful or have they been excessively costly and wasteful boondoggles?”
