Americans who are like my sister, and don’t actually read news, but just scan the headlines at the grocery store checkout, are getting an eyeful this month. The side-by-side magazine covers were Vogue announcing “Michelle Obama : The First Lady the World’s Been Waiting For” (with the inside article revealing that she’s apparently a fashion icon unlike any other first lady since, well, ever); and Newsweak announcing “Learning to Live with Radical Islam.”
And for those shoppers who might be less than happy with Newsweak’s message, and might be contemplating looking elsewhere for their news, Newsweak assures them this week that Rush is just plain wrong.
Idolatry, dhimmitude and biased ignorance in just one or two shopping trips. Wow! That’s some bang for your shopping buck.
