How amusing.

Author: Helen

A story from Yahoo News, via Shakesville:

In an upstate New York county, hundreds of voters have been sent absentee ballots in which they could vote for “Barack Osama.”

This was reported in the AGE.

Where? On the front page.

Good. Because we need to report that kind of stuff so the whole world knows about how Obama is being dog-whistled by some people. (That post was Shakesville’s Obama Racism/Muslim/Unpatriotic/Scary Black Dude Watch part 92.)

Where on the front page?

The Odd Spot.

The ODD SPOT? (that tiny section for little info-bites on cute, weird, pratfalls and two-headed chickens?)

Oh.

Good one, Fairfax.

    I’ve finally given up on Fairfax’ SMH, after many, many, many years of religiously reading it. The final straw was a cover on the Saturday careers section intended to illustrate an article on appropriate dress at work. It featured a busty young white woman in a latex fetish dress. Enough.

    If it wasn’t for target, I doubt that I’d bother. Sure as hell aint for the news, mate.

    but no. This is good. Report these morons with the mockery they deserve.
