J-J-J-Jeff Wagner a Ch-ch-ch-cherry Picker

I couldn't help but notice as Jeff Wagner stu-stu-stu-stuttered through a piece on the anti-war referendums, that he used the term "cherry-picked" in reference to the communities that hosted the referendums. It's at least the fifth time I've read or heard that term today. Good to see the talking points memo system is still functioning.

Apparently it's his and the wingnut belief these communites were cherry-picked for the referendums to succeed. Of course, there were 12 communities that did not vote in favor, so I guess that kinda blows that theory.

2 Swings of the bat:

Or the 12 communities didn't perform as expected. After all, if elections went the way we pindits thought they would go each and every time, I would be writing today about the six people running to replace Ann Nischke in the state legislature.

Regardless, now that 12 communities, including the wise and wonderful Egg Harbor, have voted to continue the war, can we begin the carpet bombing of Tehran?

But we're not at war with Iran.

Is it your prospoal, James, to go to war with the world, or at least France, after Iraq and Iran are pacified?

The combined armies of Egg Harbor and the Wigderson family will make an imposing sight at the gates of Versaille.
