Yeah exactly! This thread isn't about politics! It's about a guy who can draw a map of the US from memory and he just HAPPENS to be Al Franken. Who cares if it's not perfect! If you can't replicate the stunt he does you shouldn't criticize the accuracy. As much as I like debating politics, this isn't the thread for it.

try mentioning al gore, and see how quickly a "discussion" [sic] turns to politics...

Doesn't it turn to politics by definition upon your mentioning him? That's like saying try mentioning Phil Mickelson and see how quickly a discussion turns to golf. The "sic" should go after "turns" not "discussion."

from -"Many publications use sic in a somewhat snide way, to highlight an error"

No, this is no discussion, except for the part about the definition of certain words. The rest is all crap. To call it such would be an error. This is just typical "Nots" ideological digital stroking off.

And snide is my middle name...

My point was that the "discussion" (for what it's worth) wouldn't "turn" to politics after person X mentions Al Gore; Person X has himself turned it to politics.
