Quote du jour

"Fremdschämen describes the almost-horror you feel when you notice that somebody is oblivious to how embarrassing they truly are. Fremdscham [the noun] occurs when someone who should feel embarrassed for themselves simply is not, and you start feeling embarrassment in their place."
-Daniel Hawes

Editor's Note: Daniel Hawes was not commenting on 'Abortion Barbie' Wendy Davis. Jonah Goldberg was when he quoted Hawes.
