The beauty of the concept is that it saves me from having to think of something clever. And by admitting that I didn't make the clever remark, I don't become the subject of tedious unsolicited e-mails like those about Harvard Law profs who purportedly don't write their own books. (Quel No Merde, Monsieur Holmes!)
Here's the beta version, with a quote from James Wolcott:
"Meet the Press had a political panel this weekend that looked like a poker game for mummies."
Damn, I wish I had said that!
