It's a Cruel, Cruel Summer

As long as we're all on the topic of politicians' wardrobe and haircuts...

It's hard to pick the worst thing about Mrs. Dole's look. Is it the Groucho eyebrows?

Maybe it's the pearls, which I believe she got by digging up Mamie Eisenhower.

Maybe it's the hair, which seems to be an homage to Bananarama... but with a soup├žon of Kajagoogoo. (below)*

And if only the polar icecaps had as much frosting as her hair. Or perhaps another Senator went berserk and sprayed Streaks N' Tips all over her. (I think Lindsey Graham seems due to snap.)

And, finally, we get to the dress. Wow. Although, in fairness to Mrs. Dole, she had to go straight from the Senate to her other job: standing behind a TV weatherman.

A Simple Mistake, Could Happen to Anyone...

Ordinarily I'd never make fun of someone for a typo... even if the text that needed proofing is only a sentence. I mean, it's not exactly War & Peace. You'd think someone on a production staff would have time to give it a twice-over.

Still, I thought it would be churlish to point it out. I figured it would be prickish to make fun of something so petty.

And then...

A little more than one minute after this rather glaring typo appeared, O'Reilly scolded "the far-left San Francisco Chronicle" for misspelling someone's name, saying, "Wise up. Get better."

I was right. It was prickish.
