Deep Stupid


Today’s winner is somebody named Jim Prevor, who writes thusly of Sarah Palin for the Weekly Neocon Standard:

If the English language had a punctuation mark that signified “cackle,” 8th grade English teachers would use the paragraph above to teach kids when to use it.  Probably they should even put 2 on that last one.  I mean, that paragraph started funny, but then it just kept getting funnier.

Jim Prevor, whoever you are, I salute you.  You should take that stuff on the road.

    Gold, I tell ya. Gold.

    Somebody — with more time and energy than me — should post a series of unattributed statements by Palin and assorted beauty pageant contestants, and see if anybody can pick out which are which.
