Haute, Or Should I Say, Haughty Couture

This is funny:

JUST CAUGHT Jonathan Klein debating Stephen Hayes about the CBS forgery scandal. Klein says that "Bloggers have no checks and balances . . . [it's] a guy sitting in his living room in his pajamas."

Better pajamas than no clothes at all. (At least for most of us.) But jeez, this is worse than relying on the authority of the speaker or author to confer truth or relevance. Now you have to be wearing the right clothes to be taken seriously?

Are you sure you want to go down this path?

Damn, beat me to it. That was precisely the image that popped into my head when I heard that 'pyjamas' line.
