The Chicago Sun-Times has apparently moved the Funny Papers to the Front Page. In today's edition, the sub-head over a debate photo of Obama and Hillary reads, "Obama complains distractions keeping him from talking about real issues."
Presumably, the "real issues" would include serious policy prescriptions like, "Change," "Hope," "Yes, we can," and "We are the people we've been waiting for." The "distractions" would include unimportant things like Obama's elitist contempt for working-class rural Americans, Obama's wife's low opinion of the U.S.A., Obama's very close decades-long affiliation with a racist, America-hating spiritual advisor, Obama's close-ties to indicted political influence purchaser Tony Rezko, Obama's Socialist prescriptions for taxes and government spending, Obama's utter failure to understand the effect of capital gains tax policy on investor incentives, economic growth and tax revenues, Obama's promises to coddle and legitimize America's enemies Iran and North Korea coupled with his threat to invade America's ally Pakistan, Obama's snubbing of America's closest South American ally Columbia, or Obama's I-can-declare-defeat-in-Iraq-faster-than-you war strategy.
Congratulations to the Chicago Sun-Times. With daily newspaper subscriptions and ad sales in a seemingly irreversible tailspin, at least the publishers have found a way to give the remnant of readers a few laughs before the lights go out.
