The original post isn’t very long. But it still has this throwaway comment near the end:
He’d also worked as an art director on Hollywood movies during WWII.
This is one of those references that only means something to people who are already in the know. It’s a punchline for people who already get the joke. I have no knowledge of what it signifies for a person to be an art director on Hollywood movies during the last Big One. (CIA nonsense?)
So in the spirit of “Bushisms”, I define Sailerisms to be “Any oblique reference seemingly parenthetical to the greater article that reveals, to audience members with a certain perspective, the purpose of drawing attention to the subject.”
Sailerisms are often found at the end of a blog post, in the penultimate paragraph or nearby. They also, upon reflection, reveal Sailer’s rather unseemly method of propaganda. An analysis of which is soon to follow, I hope.
