Having lived my life as a blond, I should not laugh. However the Boston (nee Bay State) Banner front pager on Kerry Healey's campaign for governor is too good.
I nominate Alex Bloom's Healey's negativity repelled state voters for Le Mot Juste award. He starts, "Her dark roots came out early and often."
The pun on dark from an African-American-oriented paper is nicely done. He doesn't drag that metaphor throughout the analysis of why she failed. Then again, he didn't have to -- LOL.
Annoyance: If you look for this after November 15th, you'll have to go to archives. The link will go to the then current article in that spot.
