Wouldn't a future year when advances in robotics make it possible to have Metallic-Americans as property and/or politicians be more appropriate?

Mr. Romney could not be reached for comment, a spokesman said, because he was travelling around the world visiting his money.


In his Zeppelin, if I'm not mistaken.

Not a big reader or fan of Time, but I'll admit that was pretty funny.

Funnier jokes have been made. So when are we done pissing on Romney's rapidly cooling corpse? When do we start pissing on Cantor and Boehner's sissy slap fight for the desiccated husk of the GOP instead?

Well, he did manage to find a spot in a Titanic lifeboat. I'm sure he didn't dress like a woman to get it, neither

I'm still pissing on the corpse of Alan Keyes from when he was destroyed in the Senate election by Obama.

Wait, the New Yorker did something that was actually funny?

Huh.

Teddy Roosevelt would have mopped the floor with Mitt. Now, Woodrow Wilson v. Mitt, that would have been an interesting contest.

I'm trying to think of a joke to tie this into Mitt's suggestion our navy of that era was more capable than the US Naval Fleet 2012 but nothings coming to me.

/1916, actually

Andy Borowitz is one of the key reasons I keep paying for The New Yorker.  I would guess that I'm not alone in that category.

A Romney joke in December?

What a timely witticism.

By coincidence Time Magazine was last relevant in 1912.

To be fair, the date was aaalll the way at the end, and in parenthesis (which means it's optional right?).

Unlike the old 'Playboy', I got the 'New Yorker' for the pictures.

It's the bubble. He tried it in the bubble and all his bubble mates nodded their heads knowingly.

Outside of the bubble? Yeah, not so much.
