Nuke the Punchline: Cover on Last Newsweek

Harvey over at IMAO has another straight line of the day up, and so it is time to pick the winners of the last one:

On the cover of the final print edition of Newsweek...

#5 zzyxx: ...A hammer and sickle…why try to sugarcoat it now?

#4 Son of Bob: ...”We’re All Out of Work…Bush’s Fault”

#3 Rodney Dill: ...More jobs vacated or shaved.

#2 Iowa Jim: ...appears Pilate’s question, “What is truth?”

And the best punchline goes to CTCompromise:

On the cover of the final print edition of Newsweek: a picture of the Tower of Pisa, with the caption: “Scientists prove that anything which leans too far to the left will eventually fall”. 

Congratulations CTC!


The best punchline for the last Nuking Politics straight line was from Bob in Feenicks

Joe Biden's favorite thing he got for Christmas this year: an iPod filled with Obama's speeches. -From the Queen of England.

Congratulations Bob!


Now here's a line for you guys to play with:

Harry Reid is proposing legislation...


  1. ... to give every Senator a stipend to cover expenses for lollipops and windowless vans.

  2. Harry Reid is proposing legislation to finalize the budget for 2010.

  3. ...repealing the Law of Gravity in case we go over the Fiscal Cliff.

    /#4 wasn't mine, it was Son of Bob (no relation)

    1. Thanks for pointing that out. I'm surprised I haven't made the mistake before.

  4. designate the fiscal cliff as just another shovel ready project. (and its time to start digging faster)

  5. place "Mind the Gap" signs at the edge of the fiscal cliff.

  6. exclude Harry Reid as a covered medical condition under Obamacare, unless men's bikini waxing falls under a birth control or mental illness ruling.
