Linda Valdez of the Arizona Republic...Champion of Broken English

Linda wrote an opinion column a couple of days ago in the Arizona Repugnant that looks something like this:

 "Obamacare is suffering self-inflicted wounds. It’s hard to excuse the level of screw up.

 So few people managed to enroll that only the GOP could cheer.

And they are cheering.

 Those who were rooting for failure are happy."

 Spacing and all. Who talks like this? And how hard is it to be a columnist for the Republic? Don't they have a TOEFL or something to get on there? Or maybe they had to scrap it because of a declining readership. Maybe they should only publish in Spanish.

 Or, as Jack Nicholson said in As Good As it Gets, "Where do they teach you to talk like this? In some Panama City "Sailor wanna hump-hump" bar, or is it getaway day and your last shot at his whiskey? Sell crazy someplace else, we're all stocked up here."
