Political Writing Award Nominee
Opening sentence to an article in The Carletonian, my local college newspaper, on the Minnesota gubernatorial race between Tim Pawlenty and Mike Hatch:
Like a pair of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots, Republican incumbent Tim Pawlenty and Democratic candidate Attorney General Mike Hatch will battle to win the title of Governor in this week’s election.
1) Best opening sentence in a political article
2) Best use of simile in a political article
I open the floor to any challengers.
