But I was thinking the other day, and talking about newsy things isn't particularly unintellectual. In fact, some would argue that it's almost like the definition of "intellectual," and if there's two words that scare me they're "intellectual" and "definition."
Now, some of you may be wondering, "Then why did you start doing all those intellectual things in the first place?" Well, it started when Yair told me to do that Top of the News article. And then I saw Mitty Witty, and I fell in love, and I was carried away by the throws of passion. But now I'm starting to realize that my love for Mitty Witty isn't what's best for me. He means a lot to me, but if loving Governor Romneykins means sacrificing my unintellectuality, then it's not worth it.
Of course, my cowriter is going to respond with, "You've done plenty of unintellectual things with your Mitt Romney articles!" [Editor's note - Y. S. Rice: You have done plenty of unintellectual things with all of your articles. Don't mistake that as praise.] But what was unintellectual about those articles? That they featured Mitt Romney in various provocative poses. But google has taken down those pictures, replacing them with giant exclamation points which would fool only the very naive into thinking it was a picture of Romney's penis.
