TBOE is not very political (except for Sundays), but that does not stop this site from having a major impact on the political world, as is obvious from what happened recently.
On August 12, I posted "The Best Fashion Accessory To Tell The World That Although You Are Smart And All, You Are Still Sexy (Tina Fey Excluded)" mostly because Lisa Loeb had caught my attention because her actually-kind-of-cool song about the 11 planets (when there are really 12) had gotten released.
The point of the post was self-explanatory.
Like everything else I write, though, that little post went on to have world-shaking consequences, and also proved that John McCain may not vet his vice presidential nominees, but he does read The Best of Everything.
Right, Sarah Palin?
