Grumpy Old Man for President

While watching the news yesterday, I saw a clip of Newt Gingrich making a speech standing in front of a model T car. I couldn't tell you what he was saying because I was totally focused on the image of 68 year old Newt standing in front of an even older automobile.

When you are a grumpy old man running for president trying to connect with younger generations, does it really help to stand in front of a Model T when you make a speech? Why not just come out in your underwear and robe, yell "Hey you kids! Get off my lawn!" and get it over with?

Taking the News out of Newsweek

Newsweek, an increasingly irrelevant weekly news magazine, has given up the illusion of even being remotely concerned with news. Instead, they have used their latest issue to show they are simply cheerleaders for the Obama administration.

Disagree with Obama's policies? You must be an idiot. Notice how much he has grown the deficit? That's a good thing! How dumb are you? There can't be anything wrong with what President Obama's done during the last 3 years to take a bad economy and make it worse. You, dear average schmuck, are just too simple to realize how awesome he truly is.

Yeah...right. How about this cover instead?
