I thought the real article would be:
Cheney named sexist man again...

Maybe all I can think of is attack ads after the last election.

Dyslexia causes all sorts of horror news captions. From today alone:

"Iran invades Iraq, Syria"(http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061121/ap_on_re_mi_ea/iraq_summit )

"Activists report nuclear attack" (http://www.news.com.au/couriermail/story/0,23739,20796462-5003402,00.html)


Neither of these is nearly as hair-raising as "Cheney named sexiest man alive (again)". :eek:
