The Washington Post recently unveiled their thought provoking new masthead. See below.
It got us to thinking that there must have been quite a few selections considered before landing on Democracy Dies in the Dark. Our crack team of reporters then made it their mission to scour the streets of DC to find the rejected mastheads. And by “scour” we mean dumpster diving behind WaPo’s headquarters. Buried deeply beneath the tear soaked We’re With Her t-shirts and the reams of used Saul Alinsky checklists, we found the following mother load of discarded mastheads.
Liberals appear to be fixated with Hitler. Note these classy quotes:
His supporters are like “good Germans” in “Hitler’s Germany.” Harry Stein, Esquire magazine.
“I could not help remembering how economic turmoil had conspired with Nazi nationalism and militarism—all intensified by Germany’s defeat in World War I—to send the world reeling into catastrophe… It is not entirely mistaken to contemplate our post-election state with fear and trembling.” John Roth, Claremont College professor.
“We sometimes have the feeling that we are living in the time preceding the election of Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany.” Fidel Castro.
And liberals have been fixated for some time. For these quotes above were actually pointed at Ronald Reagan the day after his election in 1980.
We know there are many Trump fans who appreciate his spontaneous tweets and the unfiltered stream of consciousness that flows from his smart phone to the masses, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea to occasionally reread a tweet before hitting send. Or maybe to one of his staffers he could say “is this tweet phrased clearly without unnecessary antagonism?” Now that would be presidential.
