MEMBER DIARY

Funniest paragraph of punditry I’ve read this year

I created a diary for this even though I don’t have much to say – I’d like to capture rebuttals and see if folks can offer up funnier quotes.  This was posted courtesy Drudge, commenting on the abject failure of Copenhagen alarmist conference slash Al Gore handshake show.  The quote is the last paragraph:

If there were not $45trillion of Western citizens’ money at stake, this would be the funniest moment in world history. What a bunch of buffoons. Not since Neville Chamberlain tugged a Claridge’s luncheon bill from his pocket and flourished it on the steps of the aircraft that brought him back from Munich has a worthless scrap of paper been so audaciously hyped. There was one good moment at Copenhagen, though: some seriously professional truncheon work by Danish Plod on the smellies. Otherwise, this event is strictly for Hans Christian Andersen.

My favorite word of the day: “smellies.”  What a charm.
