What. The. Balls.
It's apparently for the show's 20th anniversary, which I guess is ironic as it'll make Marge the oldest person posing in that issue.

I need coffee. I just spent ten minutes making sure that the news that Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize wasn't an Onion article.
Isn't it sort of a minimum requirement that before you win the Nobel Prize for peace you stop torturing people and imprisoning them indefinitely?

"A Meteor Issue"
Topping themselves yet again on the petty and ridiculous scale, conservatives erupted in celebration when Chicago lost its bid for the Olympics. I'm not a huge supporter of the Olympics in any sense- not just where they have it, I mean the entire stupid, expensive, over-important spectacle in its entirety- but everyone knows it was all about declaring that Chicago losing the Games meant a "loss for Obama." This was the party that ran for President eight months ago with the slogan "country first."
I've gone over the idea before, but it's getting clearer and clearer that nothing is more important to conservatives than pissing off Democrats for the worst and most meaningless reasons. Also, just checking, but it's 48 hours since they gave the Olympics to Rio and- yep- Obama is still president. Where did their plan fail?
