Politicians tend to speak with their hands, perhaps because they've been coached to do so by their handlers, or maybe because people who seek public office are predisposed to punctuate their words with emphatic gestures. We may never know! But we can assume that these politicians shouldn't be allowed to speak while chopping vegetables in a crowded kitchen, and that they should drink wine out of soda cans to minimize spillage. Anyway, The SA Forum Goons aren't the first to think politicians' hands look weirdly empty when they're waving them -- this is why there are 20,000 hits for the phrase "politician empty gesture" -- but they actually did something about it!

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
