Another Jet Noise Contest

The NY Times never ceases to amaze me - there is no piece of news for which they are unable to find an anti-GOP tie-in. Last week I was over at The Corner and got the idea for another Jet Noise contest from this entry:

HIGHLARIOUS [Jonah Goldberg]

This morning's New York Times headline:

Giuliani Lauds Bush's Leadership On Terror; GOP Opposes Abortion and Gay Unions."

It's like that old joke (which comes in many forms) about an asteroid heading for Earth and the Times (or Wash Post) running the headline "Earth Doomed; Blacks, Women to be Hardest Hit"


But my favorite was this one suggested by a reader:

"Nuclear Device Detonated in NYC; Thousands of Gay Marriages Delayed"

The challenge: come up with the best NY Times headline. Deadline: Friday at 9 pm. There is also an impromptu Kerry caption contest going on in the comments section of this post. If we get enough entries, I'll keep bumping it along with this post until Friday. Winners will be announced whenever I stop drinking this weekend.

NY Times Correction

A story from September 7, 2004 04:44 PM erroneously reported that Iraq was holding first ever elections. In fact under Saddam Hussein Iraq held periodic elections that had a stabilizing effect on the mid-east region.
