Romney launches national campaign – Seniors booted from House gallery – Tax return fight: better than baseball a nd dogs – Winslow’s HOV lane idea

STAY TUNED, AMERICA: Mitt Romney won a whole bunch of primaries yesterday to double triple extra lock up the GOP nomination. He celebrated by launching his national campaign and told everywhere that “a better America begins tonight,” which sort of sounds like a line used to market something from the 90s.
“A better America[n Gladiators] starts tonight!”
“A better America [Online] starts tonight!”
“A better America [Knows How to Dance] starts tonight!”

AFGHAN REVOLT: Senior citizen activists got all riled up yesterday and shouted at Speaker DeLeo from the House gallery during the budget debate. The trouble-making grannies were promptly booted from the chamber and organizers were scolded by court officers.

SURELY MAKE YOU LOSE YOUR MIND: Dan Winslow’s HOV toll lane idea didn’t go anywhere during the budget debate, but not before drivers got really worked up about it.

#MASEN: I just assume all politicians own car elevators and secret mountain top lairs, and there’s nothing a silly little “tax return” document or “indisputable proof otherwise” can do to change that.
