WTF Were They Thinking?

All right, I’ve seen some bad ideas in my time, but this is one of the worst I’ve seen lately:

I saw this puzzle in the toy and game aisle at the Goodwill Store, unopened in original shrinkwrap.

Yeah, big surprise there.

The idea of a 500-piece puzzle for a presidential candidate was bad enough (I would have found an Obama puzze ludicrous, too, and I like Barack Obama).

But who thought the image of John McCain, inset over an image of a dark and leafless tree, with the totally incongruous message “New Dawn,” would appeal to anyone…even his supporters?

If this was a puzzle for “John McCain and the Zombie Apocalypse,” maybe. But New Dawn? This is an image that’s supposed to make people hopeful?

    And they don’t get much more old school (and crotchety) than McCain.

    Hey, maybe you’re on to something, Big Man. Maybe McCain is Methuselah…
