I’m awarding the little known TPM Excellence in Deft Snark Award to Megan Carpentier of the Air America website for this sentence from a post on AARP’s poll on the president’s health care speech. The award is granted episodically for path-breaking combinations of AP Style and deadpan humor …
An overnight poll by AARP shows that Obama’s speech on health care helped resolve the concerns of many people over 45 dumb enough to believe braying Republicans that the Administration planned on executing the elderly.
Had I been editing I think I’d have stuck a “who say” between ‘Republicans’ and ‘that’. But that’s a minor quibble.
