On Friday’s Inside Washington on PBS, during a discussion of President Obama’s failure to secure passage of the Dream Act in the Senate, after panel member Evan Thomas of Newsweek asserted that "stupid politics" was behind the bill’s defeat, host Gordon Peterson brought up a quip by humorist Jimmy Tingle that "if they all looked like Norwegians, there’d be no problem."
Well, Gordon, duh. Looking Norwegian pretty much solves all problems. The oil fire in the Gulf? Rosie O'Donnell's intractable halitosis? The fast growing back hair of Rachel Maddow? Mud slides in California? All are problems that could have been easily solved by the early application of looking Norwegian.
And, if you need more evidence: Adolf Hither, Pol Pot, Stalin, Ché, and that clown painting serial killer: all didn't look Norwegian. You can look it up.
