Today's key word brought to you by the letter "O"

Darn Floor's recent post gets the link for using "ostensibly" in the first sentence. I quite enjoy this word, though invariable my usage of it forces me to stop and wonder if I've actually used it correctly.

The post itself is an interesting one, analyzing a recent van trip by Senator Feingold and quoting James Taranto in the process (always an added bonus).

However, it is this quote that gave me the best visual:
So I piled into a van with some friends in Milwaukee and drove from Wisconsin to Alabama.

Is anyone else picturing overly stuffed clown cars??
I think that especially appropriate because the whole affair seems like something to which the Ranger would say "Clownville."

However, I must object to a footnote Drew's earlier post where he disses the word "blog." It might indeed by ugly sounding, but it sure is fun to say.
