A severed foot is the ultimate stocking stuffer.

I figured out why the Peggy Joseph video bothers me.

I know this is old, but I was reflecting on the iconic Peggy Joseph video once again recently and something really bothers me about it.

She seems like she is about to say something that will be poignant and inspiring. She begins by saying it was a touching moment and she never thought she would see this day come. Surely — surely — she will next talk about what it means to her to see an African-American elected president, given how minority races, ethnicities, and religions have been treated in this country for most of our history. Or maybe she will point to her children beside her and say, “Now I can tell them they can grow up to be anything they want to be in this country.”

Something big along those lines.

But no.

She says she experienced her “touching moment” because she’s getting a financial bailout.
