Sketch Discussion Highlights
Sketch discussions happen weekly on Thursday's at 1:00 p.m. ET
Upper Montgomery, Md.: Seriously, even Dan Patrick (ESPN national radio talking head) is calling for Clinton to just stop it. If McGovern's slap wasn't enough, who is going to take this woman out to the back of the house and smack her? If it were me, my husband would hold me close and tell me it's time to let it go. As that won't happen with Hillary and Bill, who has to tell her? Will she listen to anyone? Just stop the madness!
Dana Milbank: I think Tim Russert has already held her close and told her it's time to let go. But it's not working. And I think the McGovern thing probably won't do it; I believe a large percentage of the populace did not know he was still alive.
West Chester, Penn.: The campaign staffs and the press apparently don't have the stamina for a 50-state nomination process. Given the near unanimous call of the establishment (media, political leaders) to prematurely end the primaries by pushing Clinton out, is it any wonder states like Michigan and Florida fell all over themselves to move up on the primary calendar? If the Beltway crowd had their way, the upcoming Kentucky, West Virginia and Oregon voters just wouldn't matter.

Dana Milbank: Yes, but I don't hear anybody in the press saying we shouldn't hold the Puerto Rico primary on June 1. I already asked by editor to send me to Puerto Rico for the month, to get a good sense of the place and which way the vote may go, but he refused (more of that nickel and dime stuff mentioned above). Indeed, you can do your part to extend the Democratic nominating contest by sending an email to my editor, Bill Hamilton (firstname.lastname@example.org), with the subject line "Send Dana to Puerto Rico."
Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
Savannah, Ga.: Do you think those nuns will head to court to rechallenge Indiana's law (now that they can show actual harm)? I want to see if Scalia and Alito have the guts to smack down some sisters. The nuns should bring rulers to court and tap their palms with them occasionally, to remind our good Catholic jurists just what kind of penance they will have to do.

I had that very thought Tuesday night when I heard about the 98-year-old nun who was turned away. Indeed, it would have been the story of the night if Gary, Indiana didn't later captivate the nation. Somehow I think that's not the demographic the Roberts court had in mind when they upheld the voter ID law.
