Newsweek: Uh-More Like... BOOZE SEEK!

The Newsweek scandal, of course, spawned dozens of blog-o-posts which used the word Newsweak. As if to imply the news in Newsweek, was, in fact, weak. Heh heh. It's a diabolically clever play-on-words.

Jonah Goldberg suggested "Todd," which, of course, doesn’t even rhyme! With a name like “Newsweek,” there are so many options, including
-Jooooos, Eeek!.
-U.S. News and World Report.

Of course, one might ask, why would we even want to come up with a disparaging nickname for an adversary? Isn’t that a symptom of Maureen Dowd Syndrome? (“…ChimpChimpMcBushington and Slick Cheney helping out their Corpulent-Corpse-Corporation, HELLiburt-and-ernie-ton.”)

*Gleeking, is of course, slang for a certain type of spitting between ones teeth- which was very popular at North Central in 11th grade.
