an erection. After National Review editor Rich Lowry, who famously wrote of Sarah Palin's performance in the 2008 vice presidential debate: "I'm sure I'm not the only male in America who, when Palin dropped her first wink, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, "Hey, I think she just winked at me." And her smile. By the end, when she clearly knew she was doing well, it was so sparkling it was almost mesmerizing. It sent little starbursts through the screen and ricocheting around the living rooms of America."
Just thinking about Margaret Thatcher and the Falklands War gives me a lowry.
If your lowry lasts longer than four hours, consult a physician.
