"The most popular soap opera of 2008 has been the presidential campaign. Those of us who've become addicted to it (I am one, although I say it with no pride) have had a chance to savor every quip, gaffe and tear. We've listened to thousands of pundits and 10,000 sound bites. If words were weasels, we all would've been bitten to death."
