A Little Friday Roundup

* This made me laugh.

* I may have to delink der Angstman for this one! Tsk tsk.

* This book on Amazon had a rather odd companion link: Muslim Dating Center - Date muslim singles in your city. Free registration. Okay, I thought it was odd. Your mileage may vary!

And I had a few other things for the roundup, but I can't find the email I pasted the links into. If I find them, or remember them, I shall let you know!

Update! Here's one I remembered from The Corner:

I GUESS "HISPANIC" IS SPANISH FOR "POOR" [Jonah Goldberg]

From the Hotline:
Making An Ass-umption? In answering a question from Spanish-speaking Ernestina Escobar, who was introduced as "someone in our audience who has experienced the American dream." Dean responded: "You would have prescription benefits if you moved to Vermont, because a third of all our people, especially at your income level, are eligible for prescription benefits without help from the federal government." She never mentioned her financial situation.

Imagine if a white, preppy Park Avenue Republican had made this gaffe?

Update to the Update: Jonah has put up a correction to the above. Apparently it was a multipart question from two different people.

You left out Jonah's italics on Republican, emphasizing that Dean IS a white, preppy Park Avenue Dem.

i knew revealing my failings would be a mistake, hehehe...i tried so hard to keep my dark little secrets to myself, but was undone in a moment of weakness, feeling that confession of my sins would be good for my soul :)
