Enquiring minds want to know...

Does anyone else remember the 80s commercials for the National Enquirer newspaper? The one that went, "Enquiring minds want to know--I want to know!" Among the salacious gossip rags with purely invented stories, the National Enquirer actually has hints of truth from time to time. However, they are always good for a shocking (but untrue) headline and a fabricated story or two.

It's hardly what I would call reputable journalism, however, so I was surprised when a blog entry on Obama's official website proudly declared, "Enquirer endorses Obama on Democratic side." I thought, "wow, that's probably not something I'd call attention to."

And then I realized they were talking about the Cincinnati Enquirer.

I guess that makes more sense.

I totally remember those commercials. I remember the outraged look on the lady's face, like it was her Constitutional *right* to know, goshdarn it.

It's hilarious to think of the Shelby thought-bubble: "Geez, Enquirer for Obama? What's next- Star publishes opeds on clean energy? Weekly World News does an editorial on Darfur?"

HA! That is funny.
