Withers the Nation

The Nation has caused a major political earthquake by announcing its endorsement of a Democrat for President. This comes as a surprise to everyone who has no idea what the Nation says about anything because they can't stand to read it. That certainly includes the crew at ReverseVoteSwap.org. We were expecting the magazine to come out for a Kerry/Cheney Unity Ticket on the basis of Anybody-But-Nader.

Although it appears to have been changed for final publication, ReverseVoteSwap.org has obtained the first proofs of the Nation's endorsement issue cover.

The Nation endorses Kerry

Apparently many candidate covers were considered for this world-historic issue. Below is one elegant finalist.

Hell no, we won't go! Send some kids from Lesotho!

Although we're saddened that the Nation has fallen for John Kerry's sorry vanity campaign, we are glad that so many awful political writers have decided to concentrate themselves into a single magazine, which savvy politicos can easily avoid.
