True. But Ann Romney and her horse (whether or not there was legitimate therapy purpose) weren't fair game--it was irrelevant attempt to foment class warfare. And neither is this. But if our standard for moral behavior is "I...

Seen from your point of view, this is a truly irrefutable point--a gold-plated valid reason for leaving early. From her point of view, however, it's not so clear. :lol:...
