Politics is pretty easy, really. You just say "Main Street" whenever you're trying to make a point.
U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback got a little C-SPAN time the other day. The Kansas lawmaker is leading the effort in the Senate to carve auto dealers out of the Consumer Financial Protection Agency. In his remarks, Brownback called auto dealers "quintessential Main Street.".
And, hey, if you're the victim of "yo-yo" financing or some other shady practice, take it up with that bedazzled piece of Old Glory the National Automobile Dealers Association fought and die for at Antietam.
