Our military is over-stretched. The country is up to its ears in debt. Maine is staring down a home heating crisis and the state has one of the most closely-watched senate races in the nation, featuring candidates with radically opposing views of how to solve the problems we face.

And the Sun Journal--which hasn't exactly been overwhelming readers with incisive political coverage--gives us 1154 words on how celebrities are raising money for politicians! In Maine!

Look: Everyone already knows that Sen. Collins is a moderate bipartisan centrist who likes to reach across the aisle--I get that.

But a little more reporting on the actual facts of her record--and the record of her opponent--wouldn't exactly be overkill.
