Tom Brokaw and the heartbreak of white guy's tight ass

Happens all the time. Some staid, button-down white guy experiences an unaccountable, yet irresistible, urge to be hip and score some political correctness points by playing up a stereotype of his own race and sex - which, in this case, he invents out of whole cloth. Result? Dude makes a fool of himself.

What the hell does Tom Brokaw mean when he talks about Mitt Romney's "white man's overbite"? Is there something characteristic about a white man's overbite that differentiates it from that of a black man's or an Asian's? If so, this is a physical phenomenon that is strangely unremarked in the entire annals of dentistry. Is Brokaw just pandering to non-whites? Or is he jealous because his own teeth are perpetually hidden behind a tight-lipped smirk (does he, in fact, even have any teeth)?

C'mon, Tom, I wanna see you gum some crow.

To be fair, Pollak's wife is actually a mixed race South African, what the South Africans call "coloured".

Tom Brokaw, yet another celebrity seeking to extend his shelf life.

This is a true story.

When I was a young lad, the dentist determined that I, in fact, didn't have a white man's overbite. The dentist recommended braces to correct this deformation, or I "would be mistaken for a non-white man" and be traumitized for life!

OK, my memory may be a little fuzzy on that last part, but I did have to use a stick to pry my teeth back into a "white man's overbite". If that sounds strange, remember, this was back in the Middle Ages of dentistry.
