Today's lesson in bad taste? Brought to you by none other than the New York Post.

Here's the tabloid's front page from Friday (don't click if you're squeamish), comparing the assassination of a dictator to a baseball player's postseason failures.

Yep, Muammar Qaddafi was an evil dictator responsible for crushing the civil liberties of millions, using chemical weapons, aiding terrorism and the deaths of countless people. Alex Rodriguez is overpaid and went just 2 for 18 in the ALDS against the Tigers. Yeah, those two seem equal.

But hey, they have a picture of a guy with a gun wearing a cap with an interlocking NY and a picture of a bloody body of a dictator -- sounds like the perfect situation for an A-Rod isn't clutch joke. The Post's "joke" if you don't want to click on the link is that Qaddafi's killer had "more hits than A-Rod." Excuse me if I'm not laughing.

brian8ball: This coming from a Detroit native who uses BATMAN AND ROBIN as his avitar.
Tonight when you put on your BATMAN and Robin P.J'S and have your milk
and cookies,just be lucky you can hide and INSULT A WHOLE CITY





Considering there are a few other papers there - including some that actually care about real journalism - I would think at least some would go elsewhere for their information. However, if what you're implyng is true and all of NEW YORK reads the Post, well..... it explains a lot.
Undecided
