It doesn't happen often (certainly not as often as some might wish) but sometimes I read something that someone has said and I am left speechless:
"Wearing a headscarf is of course culturally determined. And that’s the way these women experience that, because that’s how they experience their religion. In addition, the headscarf offers opportunities for women is some Islamic countries, because without one they won’t be able to leave home."
Barcepundit replies perfectly to this...this...toad.
(h/t to Vodkapundit, whose trackbacks keep giving me a 404)

I still don't understand how the trackback mechanism works but my guess is that Vodkapundit has them turned off.

I'm not sure. If he did then the 'Trackback' link wouldn't even show up, right?

I don't know, B. Joanne Jacobs has hers permanently turned off but MT always tries to ping anyway. Other folks have them turned on and it doesn't bother to try. Confuses me greatly.
