THESE THINGS JUST WRITE THEMSELVES: Reader David Hines emails:
Suggested TV commercial:
FADE IN: on Ted Kennedy, on the podium, partway through his garbled
convention speech, as he delivers the line, “The only thing we have to
fear is four more years of George W. Bush!”
CUT TO: New York City skyline. The old one. With the World Trade
Ouch. And Rand Simberg observes: “If Karl Rove is smart, the Republican convention will feature some grateful Iraqis in prime time, just as a reminder.”
UPDATE: Another Kennedy goof here.
ANOTHER UPDATE: A reader suggests this image.
