Like Creampuffs For Numbskulls

For as much as I've complained about The New Republic during the Iraq years, they do seem to be turning things around these days-- I doubt we'll see another shameful and embarrassing endorsement of Joe Lieberman for president (yes, it really happened), and they'll probably think twice before giving unqualified support to another war. Still, they really should be doing more penance, not to mention burning their DLC pamphlets. But get this-- a joke! And it's funny! In spite of the tortured phrasing! (Although to be fair, a reader pointed it out to them.)

Invaluable reader EC notes that the Bush White House's new pastry chef previously authored the book Desserts for Dummies. He'll now be serving plenty of those!
