      obsession with punishment. And prison. Locking people up, for instance, for drug crimes is simply ridiculous on it's face. We are very quick to put people in prison in this country. It costs a lot, and usually it doesn't accomplish much. Now, I'm not talking about murderers and rapists here, I'm talking about people in prison for stupid, petty crimes.

      There are too many people in prison for things that in many other civilized countries, they would not be sent away for.

      But I will give you this: there are far too few CEO's in prison.

      Perfect ticket for GOP '12: Palin/O'Donnell.
