Inert Napolitano

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I was scanning quickly across a story about Janet Napolitano, when one of those weird, closure kind of Freudian slips takes place, and I thought I read her name as "Inert Napolitano". How apropos!


 /ɪnˈɜrt, ɪˈnɜrt/ Show Spelled[in-urt, ih-nurt]
1. having no inherent power of action, motion, or resistance (opposed to active): inert matter.
2. Chemistry. having little or no ability to react, as nitrogen that occurs uncombined in the atmosphere.
3. Pharmacology. having no pharmacological action, as the excipient of a pill.
4. inactive or sluggish by habit or nature.

Yeah. That sounds about right!
