Here's a quote from The Hill so perfect in its cluelessness that I hope the pleasure laughing at it makes your Christmas morning:
It is difficult to pinpoint when or why Lieberman has taken a hit: In the past two weeks, he not only crucial in helping remove the healthcare bill’s public option and Medicare buy-in provisions, but also subsequently announced that he would join with Democrats to support the bill after those provisions were removed.
So confusing! I rewrote the sentence so as to encapsulate how perfectly annoying this is:
It is difficult to pinpoint when or why Lieberman has taken a hit: In the past two weeks, he not only stabbed puppies to death and kicked a grandmother, but also subsequently announced that he would not laugh at you while you cried over dead puppies.
So confusing! So that's why this Genius ten is dedicated to The Hill.
