Does that make Nader the vegetarian plate? Barr the bag of nuts?


To put [undecided voters] in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. "Can I interest you in the chicken?" she asks. "Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it?"

To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked.

A bigger question is why people are cheerfully ordering the plate of shit.

maybe they like it...some people like to experiment...you see...though you'd think they'd not experiment with a nation's fate...but then again...bush was elected twice!

I wondered if Colin Powell was truly undecided.

David Sedaris is currently America's (and France's) greatest humorist. Thank you for this.
