Michael Bérubé Strikes Again

Michael Bérubé just posted a very good essay on the candidates and their disability policies. I really miss when he posted things regularly. I miss his snark, especially. Here's a good example from the most recent post:

So I thought I’d write a little something about the candidates’ policy positions on disability, because apparently (a) no one knows that the candidates have policy positions on disability and (b) policy positions on disability are not as important as flag pins. Granted, disability policy never swings an election. And why should it? Unless you yourself have a disability, or unless you know someone with a disability, or unless you’re concerned about things like employment or health care, or unless you might get sick or injured someday, or unless you’re planning on aging, disability policy is irrelevant to you.
