Kevin Drum does what his mama tells him, publishing a joke that’s apparently going around about the Bush administration. It would, of course, be funnier if the persons involved were Democrats, but it’s not bad.
He also passes along this amusing map of what people around the country call carbonated soft drinks. As a Southerner, I should reflexively call them all “Cokes” as I did in my youth. Sadly, I’ve been calling them “sodas” for years, displaying wanton disregard for my heritage. If I ever start calling them “pop,” please shoot me.
