A Wonkette reader asked why Teddy was talking about the "Shirt Heard 'Round the World"...that lead us to inquire further: A noted Republican was certain his somber tone was a sign of sobriety. A (likely-Democratic) cute guy at the bar said, "He appeared sober, but how would we know. If he were drunk all the time, who's to know if that isn't how he always is. Maybe if he were sober, we'd think he was drunk." Finally, a would-have-been Dean delegate noted, "we all experience new feelings from time to time." Uh-huh.
