Balls Balls Balls

Come on, BALLS! How could I not?

His name is Ed Balls, and his candidacy for the leadership of Britain’s Labour party will actually be an important indicator on which direction that nation’s opposition wishes to take after a dispiriting defeat (he is identified with the Gordon Brown wing of the party, while his chief rivals are Tony Blair proteges), but that’s not what really matters here: If you think I’m passing up something with the headline “Balls expected to enter fray” you are giving me far too much credit for maturity and taste.
