The best line I heard on MSNBC last night about the Iowa caucuses

Tweety (that's Chris Matthews to everyone not in the know, due to his shocking yet thin yellow hair and his big square head) on MSNBC was interviewing one of the campaign people for Obama last night. Tweety was making a point about the fact that younger women went, across the board, for Obama, while the older women seemed to go for Clinton. And Obama's spokesman (sorry, didn't get his name) said something like, "Yes, Obama has broad appeal."

O.K., now I know what he meant and it's a little sexist to purposely misread that statement. But I laughed through my nose when I heard that one. Someone needs to be just a tad more careful picking their adjectives.
