why I love Sarah Vowell

Let me count the reasons:

  1. She recently wrote a book chronicling her trips to various sites around the country that had to do with presidential murders and titled it Assassination Vacation.

  2. She talks so much like a 12-year-old girl that she was cast to do the voice for one (Violet) in The Incredibles.

  3. Writing in an op-ed in The New York Times earlier this week, she referred to herself as "a namby-pamby liberal writing for the most uppity newspaper in the world."

I'm sorry to be the only one who's noticed this, but Vowell writes a flakey, poorly connected, generally weak and certainly childish column that both makes the Left look foolish and brings down the quality and respectability of the Times. Great that she sounds like a depressed little girl, but give me Sarah Silverman any day.

Actual Talent

Agreed, she is funnier when she avoids political commentary on current affairs and sticks to amusing personal and historical anecdotes.
