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?
