The [Friday] Papers

* It’s nice of Dan Seals to buy some voters’ gas, but I’d rather he paid my health insurance premium this month.

* Lynn Sweet writes of Barack Obama’s search for a running mate: “Obama is looking for, in broad strokes, someone with complimentary expertise.”

In other words, someone whose experience goes beyond eight years as a backbencher for Emil Jones.

* On the other hand, when John McCain says Obama has no right to speak out about a GI bill because he’s never been in the military, does that mean that McCain should abstain from debates about the farm bill because he’s never been a farmer?

  1. Lynn Sweet’s misspelling (“complimentary” for “complementary”) makes it sound like Obama wants a yes man/woman. Well, maybe it wasn’t a misspelling after all.
