    What’s so fucking funny assholes? Is it that huge portions of the population worry about life’s very basics — food, shelter, health — while pearly-smiled “Rick” and “My Friend” argue whether or not a specific sentence of a book you couldn’t pay me to read changed between the hard cover edition and the paper back. Must see TV!!!

    I’ve seen coverage of this story at TPM and NYT but I couldn’t find anyone that actually went to the books in question and verified whether or not The Sentence was redacted in paper back. These two sound like guys that have spent most of the weekend holding down the same two bar stools and loudly judging the world from that high perspective. The press is their compliant bartender quietly refilling glasses and counting tips. There’s a massive hangover in our immediate future.

    Looking at Perry’s face, it’s amazing that even he, the guy who begins his sentences with “duh,” seems to get how badly Romney screwed himself.
