Too ... many ... jokes

  1. Carrie Underwood apparently has recorded a song called, "Jesus, Take the Wheel."
  2. This song is No. 1 on the pop charts.
  3. Quote: "[W]e're trying to keep Jesus Take the Wheel at #1 for a while longer."
  4. Someone asked this Barbie doll -- apparently on the cover of current "Cosmo Girl" -- "Have you felt pressure from the music and TV industry to change who you are to conform to their idea of what a star should be?"
  5. When asked what her favorite novel is, she answered, "I remember reading books like Where the Red Fern grows when I was little, so I would say classics like that are my favorite." I think this calls into question if she's picked up a book since. She later wrote, "I think it's important to be smart about everything"
  6. This same questioner asked G-d to "bless [her] benevolent heart."
  7. Her mom responds to much of her fan mail: "My mother is the primary reader."
  8. On the other hand, she used "incognito" correctly.
  9. The phrase "country girl" appears twice in this chat.
  10. I lost count of how many times she refers to herself in the plural. And I can't decide if this is better or worse than the actors and athletes -- hello, Ricky Henderson -- who refer to themselves in the third person.
  11. Someone asked, "Are you a Christian?" Please refer back to No. 1.
  12. She donates CareBears to good causes.

Have words lost all meaning?

The Post's Ivan Carter explains that the Wizards are "Consistently Inconsistent."

Mr. Gore is correct

Here is his recent speech. Nothing I can write will add or detract from it.
