Why Not?

Chris Matthews has an exceptional idea, as Newsbusters notes: Matthews Worries ‘Right’ Will Turn New Yorker Cover into T-Shirt.”

Capital idea, Chris! In an age where brand synergy is all, I’m sure the fellas at Those Shirts and the legal bean counters inside the New Yorker’s offices could work out a licensing agreement that would be mutually beneficial. Considering how much the Manhattan-based print media have been suffering financially, I’m glad to see that Matthews is always on the lookout for ways to increase their revenues through carefully selected cross-promotional opportunities.

Seriously though, it’s amazing, isn’t it? A decade spent comparing President Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Rush Limbaugh, and more recently wishing that fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton would snuff it is all perfectly fine, but the left is positively apoplectic when their own firing squad turns circular.

(Which actually happens with surprising regularity.)
