    It's a platform disaster because it's awful, unpopular policy. If your policy prescription is awful, you should bear the electoral results of proposing it rather than having the rest of us bear the...

    At least Smith has his strategy down right. The best way to convince people you're not a violent dbag is to curse them and threaten to kick their butt. And in front of kids, no less. Classy guy.

    It seemed like he had to just heave the ball with all his might to get it down there, and his accuracy suffered. You're right though, he did consistently overthrow the deep sidelines.
