The Gestation Period for Eskimos

I may be the only person in America with a Google alert set to "Schadenfreude."

Here is the Schadenfreude quote of the day from the Sunday Times of London in a review of the Republican National Convention:

"Sarah Palin is making the keynote speech. She has flown in from Alaska with her family. The announcement that this obscure governor is going to be the vice-presidential nominee has propelled the convention into the biggest, kitschest reality show in the world. The relations and the speculation about paternity, maternity, fecundity, mendacity and the gestation period for Eskimos has led to a Gustav of schadenfreude that has overwhelmed the shallow blogs on the web."

Hey! Who are you calling shallow?
