I was going to write some more tonight about the Obama election, because I have more thoughts. I'll write that tomorrow. Instead, a general question: is it just me or when you see an internet post or comment that begins with "uhm" does it make you want to cut a bitch? I hate that internet trope - it's smug and condescending but smug and condescending in that way that 14 year old girls can be.

I mean, probably when people use it, they don't mean to be mean-girl smug. It's like when someone changes lanes too closely in front of you. The assholery is probably unintended. Yet, it is there.
