NITPICKING II: Unfortunately, this being campaign season, we get lots of political ads. I try to ignore them, for sanity's sake. I made the mistake of listening to one recently. It's about how terrible of a person Libby Dole is. One line in particular struck me: the ad says she "voted to increase the federal deficit five times." Maybe I'm unclear on this, but I think it's usually referred to as "voting for a budget." What's she supposed to do instead?
