Fiction from The New York Times, courtesy the Yes Men

November 12, 2008/21.51

Meghan McCain humanizes her Dad’s campaign

October 23, 2008/6.06

One of our team, who hails from Washington state, thinks I remind her of Gov. Sarah Palin when I say, ‘You betcha,’ which I have used as part of my regular speech for around 20 years. A lot of my family is American but it’s not from that, but from a line uttered by Andy […]
