Speaking of ain't, "Politics ain't beanbag" came up yesterday with Chris
Chistie's speech. This is probably old hat around here but I hadn't noticed
it before and was amused to find it's been around since 1895. Apparently, it
is a favorite Chicago expression. The Chicago Tribune's Mark Jacob (article
today) was amused that CC has used it, and went on to Romney not being able
to get it right, Obama using it, and stuff like that. Just thought I'd
mention it.
