"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

New, Homely "Barbie" To Boost Self Esteem in Girls

Per The Onion.
"Mattel, which has been criticized in the past for promoting unrealistic standards of beauty, claimed that the new doll would not only improve the self-esteem of growing girls, but would also give them someone to feel superior to for hours on end.

Modestly priced at $7.99, each Plain Pamela doll comes prepackaged with a variety of unflattering and ill-fitting blouses to drape over her shapeless torso, as well as a packet of paste-on psoriasis spots to apply along her arms and back."

In case you are wondering why SYD has taken a sudden liking to news from "The Onion..."

It is because all other news sources currently suck. The MSM has totally jumped the partisan shark. And even the blogosphere is dangerously teetering on that brink.

There is really nowhere else to turn....
