In the process of ridiculing Ms Palin’s long meandering sentences, has The New York Times caught the bug itself?
An extract (the third paragraph) from an NYT report today on Ms Palin:
An official with the McCain campaign with knowledge of the matter referred questions to Mr. McCain’s general counsel, Trevor Potter, but, the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, added that Ms. Palin’s claim about being stuck with a $50,000 legal bill for the vetting process was “completely false, not true.”
51 words, five commas and three characters jostling for space in the same sentence. Bad fengshui!
