Two National Journals in One!

Past performance is no guarantee of future results:

“National Journal’s Hirsh: Time for a moral sanction against gun metaphors similar to the ‘N’ word.”

—Headline, the Daily Caller, January 21st, 2011.

The National Journal, today: “The Obama Administration Is on T-Mobile’s Porch With a Shotgun.” Note the photo they chose to accompany their headline, screencapped above.

Hey, I have no problem with imagery and headline*, but then, it wasn’t my side of the aisle who in the wake of the shooting of Democrat Gabrielle Giffords, Republican-appointed Federal Judge John M. Roll, and over a dozen others by a random apolitical lunatic was trying to shutdown the First Amendment, shrink the Newspeak Dictionary down even further, and pretending to get the vapors over gun metaphors and clip art in January of 2011, either. But I will point that if you’re going to play by Saul Alinsky’s rules, Rule Four will apply to you as well.

* Though I’m far less sanguine about the Obama administration attempting to intercede between two corporation who have every right to merge, for better or worse. But that’s an entirely different topic.
