There's been this other guy in charge for about six years now. May be time to find a different scapegoat.

It's a great and eerily prescient Onion article. What is wrong with linking it?

Seriously, this. A 13-year-old diatribe about someone who has been out of the public eye for six years? It wouldn't have even been funny in 2007.

If I dug up some 90's and early 2000's Onion articles arguing that the logical sequel to tobacco suits is fast food lawsuits, would anybody get upset for digging oldies but goodies?

I am sort of on Team Evul Fysics Perfesser here. I don't mind revisiting old humor. (Who doesn't enjoy an occasional rerun of Abbott & Costello's Who's on First?)

OTOH, I would like to give the "Bush's fault" thing a rest for a while.

I do enjoy referencing "Supreme Court Rules, Supreme Court Rules" from time to time, even though that article is almost old enough to go to war and die for its country.

Is it OK to like Our Dumb Century? That's even older than "Our Long National Nightmare of Peace and Prosperity Is Over."

Or is it not about the age of the joke, and perhaps about something else?
