We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This is a great point.
Maybe Rodriguez just doesn't want his job anymore, and was highlighting his opponent's homosexuality in order to raise support for his opponent!
