Oddity of the Week

I was going to write about Psychology Today’s “black women are ugly” debacle, but I seem to have missed the boat on that one–although if you did too, I strongly encourage you to go acquaint yourself with the whole sordid affair.

And then I was going to write about the House Republican Jobs Plan (PDF).  It looks and reads like a report written by a kid who forgot it was due until the night before, with its elephantine font and liberal use of clip art, and yet it still took them four months to produce.  Lower taxes and less regulation?  I never would have guessed.  Pictured is a competitive American factory of the future, producing, I can only guess, triangles.  (Ezra Klein takes it apart beautifully.)

But I must set those aside in favor of Sarah Palin’s version of Paul Revere’s ride:

He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms uh by ringing those bells and making sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free and we were going to be armed.

Well…a horse was involved, at least.

    Don’t forget when criticizing Palin’s speaking that she composes everything in free verse: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpbSwSlP4Yc

    After 1.5 days of contemplation, it finally came to me. This is the Toblerone factory!

  3. Too bad bells weren’t involved.
