“10 most Fasinating People”
Times magazine cover story about Sarah Palin:
Less well known was the Palin
who agitated for more access to the media
(other than KatieCouric), who was seen more than once
passed out on her hotel bed half-buried in
briefing books and index cards and whose
thriftiness when it came to her wardrobe was
so obvious that one senior strategist clucked of the Palins,
“These people shop at Dillards!”
another quote from the same time magazine aricle that
I found in the blog: SLATE
"There's another woman profiled in the Times
this week whose branding
sometimes contradicts itself and who
is described by
a fan-turned-staffer as "the most ordinary person."
This is of course, former Vice Presidential candidate, and potential
Palin is very
far from ordinary, despite some of
her more relatable trappings
(a McCain strategist once said of Sarah and Todd,
"These people shop at Dillards!"
I bought my dress 3 weeks ago at Dillard's (before I saw this interview)
for a wedding of one of my co-workers. It is an Antonio Melani (size 4).

The Left-Handed Whopper:
Burger King published a full page advertisement in USA Today announcing the introduction of a new item to their menu: a "Left-Handed Whopper" specially designed for the 32 million left-handed Americans. According to the advertisement, the new whopper included the same ingredients as the original Whopper (lettuce, tomato, hamburger patty, etc.). However, the left-handed whopper had "all condiments rotated 180 degrees, thereby redistributing the weight of the sandwich so that the bulk of the condiments will skew to the left, thereby reducing the amount of lettuce and other toppings from spilling out the right side of the burger."
Jim Watkins, senior vice president for marketing at Burger King, was quoted as saying that the new sandwich was the "ultimate 'HAVE IT YOUR WAY' for our left-handed customers." The advertisement then noted that the left-handed Whopper would initially only be available in the United States, but that the company was "considering plans to roll it out to other countries with large left-handed populations." The following day Burger King issued a follow-up release revealing that although the Left-Handed Whopper was a hoax, thousands of customers had gone into restaurants to request the new sandwich. Simultaneously, according to the press release, "many others requested their own 'right handed' version."
Here are some funny Hamburger jokes..
