    the hollow middle-east conflict..., 2003-12-01 15:42:50 | Main | the hollow khmer-chomsky..., 2003-12-02 02:29:35

    the hollow PR campaign:

    talked to my mom (a.k.a. "Middle America") over Thanksgiving and I guess the PR must have gobbled up part of her brain, she actually pulled this one out on me. It takes well under 750 words of op-ed space to point out how absurd it is in casual conversation, at least with people with parts of their brains left ungobbled, such as my mother. My nutty loveable fire-breathing talk-radio fan of a jackbooted brown shirt uncle Vern (a.k.a. "Bush's America"), on the other hand, might need them all before his mouth finally stalls from elevated blood pressure. Of course, he's not really a fan of print, so much.

    I won't bother mentioning what it is I'm talking about since - except for an odd handful of what must be bored academics and the occasional badly-spelling ghoul searching for lacey peterson - nobody actually reads this thing. I cock it up to all the hyphenation, but maybe it's just all the bull.
