So Grove City College professor Michael Coulter writes that Congressmen should not be allowed to run for president, to stay out of the way of supposedly serious candidates, because Congressmen historically haven’t won much.

Sure, wins by Congressmen are rare. But I can think of another office whose holders have never succeeded in their presidential runs. Of course, we won’t be hearing from Dr. Coulter about that. His disgraceful article — among the worst items ever published under my alma mater’s aegis — exists for no reason but to attack Ron Paul.
