Dumb Pol Alert

My state senator franked us a letter crowing about his successful porking of state funding to repair a local bridge. The 60-year-old bridge has been closed since last year due to "critical" structural conditions, so I suppose fixing it is a good thing.

But, man, why did no one on your staff point out that it might be a bad idea to send out a picture of you standing next to a giant "Road Closed" sign?
