The cover of Time Magazine's latest issue features a huge silohuette of Governor Chris Christie, with the tagline, "the Elephant in the Room," a reference to both the GOP symbol and Mr. Christie's weight.
Late night talk show host, David Letterman, for quite some time, made similar jokes about Gov. Christie, until the latter started chumming up to Mr. Obama - which ultimately compelled Letterman, a staunch Liberal advocate and strident critic of the GOP, to ask Mr. Christie, how he felt about him [Letterman], and if the Governor was, at all, bothered by his barbs.
"How do you feel about me?" the Liberal late night comedian, and renowned critic of the GOP, asked Gov. Christie.
"I made jokes about you - not just one or two, not just ongoing here and there [and] intermittent... Is it an issue, or is it not an issue? You tell me how you see things," said Letterman, who typically never shows any remorse about his past slights, unless the person he slighted is a newfound pal of President Obama.
Nevertheless, Rush Limbaugh on Thursday questioned whether Time Magazine would have the gall to feature a similar cover with Barack Obama's image and the tagline "the Jackass in the Room", a reference to the Democratic Party symbol and, well..., President Obama.
Interestingly, various sources note that, "Presidential candidate Andrew Jackson was the first Democrat ever to be associated with the donkey symbol. His opponents during the election of 1828 tried to label him a "jackass" for his populist beliefs... Jackson was entertained by the notion and ended up using it to his advantage on his campaign posters."
President Obama and Time magazine could follow Andrew Jackson's lead and use the aforementioned symbol to their advantage, by attaching the tagline proposed by Mr. Limbaugh beneath the President's silohuette.
If Andrew Jackson "was entertained by the notion", no doubt, President Obama and the editors at Time Magazine would also find it extremely entertaining.......
