When To Stop Reading
Most people would stop at "Mirengoff" or, at the latest, "interesting," but you don't get the full comedic potential if you stop before the period.
By the way, Tossingoff's interesting assessment is that voters took a pass on Tommy T. because of his lack of charisma and "the discounting of, and indeed near-contempt for, experience gained in Washington." Of course, the Republican base hates the Department of Health and Human Services almost as much as it hates women and the non-white. And being called uncharismatic by the Tosser is like being called a sleazebag by Newt Gingrich or a delusional nutcase by Debbie Schlussel.
