Today's cover of the Sun Times:

Obama's half-brother to Vanity Fair: 'No one knows I exist'

Best "Onion Predicts the Future" since the "Fuck It-- We're going to five blades!"/Gillette Fusion Serendipity of 2006!

Eric, you love that Five Blades article the way I love Jim Anchower columns and "Pleased To Meet Me" by the Replacements.

That Onion Obama piece was one of the funniest things they've published in years.

And how about Joe Biden! Great pick!

I *like* Pleased to Meet Me too!

Your Anchower love will never make sense to me. Seriously skippable in my book, though so is much of the Onion the past few years. I like when they come out with a winner like this though. The picture alone is genius.
