Frankly Ironic

Tweet [1]

On a day when the top news story [2] is a politician’s attempted sale of a U.S. Senate seat, Thomas Frank, in his weekly column in the Wall Street Journal, takes aim at surrogate-mother contracts [3].

What irony!  A high-ranking member of the class of people that Mr. Frank believes must protect us from greed – politicians – tries to sell what doesn’t belong to him, while Mr. Frank gets all hot’n’bothered by market transactions in which each person sells only what does belong to her.
