Who is running our country?



1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.

2. The New York Times is read by people who think they run the country.

3. The Washington Post is read by people who think they should run the
country.

4. USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country but
don't really understand the Washington Post. They do, however like the smog
statistics shown in pie charts.

5. The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn't mind running the
country, if they could spare the time, and if they didn't have to leave L.A.
to do it.

6. The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the country.

7. The New York Daily News is read by people who aren't too sure who's
running the country, and don't really care as long as they can get a seat on
the train.

8. The New York Post is read by people who don't care who's running the
country either, as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably
while intoxicated.

9. The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren't sure there is a
country, or that anyone is running it; but whoever it is, they oppose all
that they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if the leaders are
handicapped minority, feministic atheist dwarfs, who also happen to be
illegal aliens from ANY country or galaxy as long as they are democrats.

10. The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country, but
need the baseball scores.

This is why I don't read the paper or watch the news. It's all a bunch of b*llsh*t and skewed to look exciting and torrid when it's usually nothing at all.
Come by my pad, more pics from NYE.

That's pretty funny! I needed a good laugh. I read the Staten Island Advance, read by people who don't know there is a country except for Staten Island!

Sounds like I need to pick up a copy of the Chronicle. Funny list.

AS long as you're running your dictatorship at home, it's irrelevant what is happening in the senate.

Pretty accurate send-up. I love the Miami Herald one. That's a great punchline.
