In the early 1990's, SAAB ran a regular (yearly?) contest in the New Yorker. A New Yorker artist would create a cartoon and readers were invited to submit captions. In 1993, I entered and won, the top entry of 2000 entries. My prize was a 6 month lease (with insurance) of a new SAAB of my choice, a trip to NYC for two, with a stop at the Liberty Science Center in NJ for the unveiling of SAAB's new model, dinner and a room at the Algonquin hotel, and a tour the next day of the New Yorker magazine.
Here's a photo of the cartoon (below) and one of me with the car (above).
Oct. 7, 2008 | "My government is my worst enemy. I'm going to fight
them with any means at hand."
This was former revolutionary terrorist Bill Ayers back in his old
Weather Underground days, right? Imagine what Sarah Palin is going to
do with this incendiary quote as she tears into Barack Obama this
Only one problem. The quote is from Joe Vogler, the raging
anti-American who founded the Alaska Independence Party.
Inconveniently for Palin, that's the very same secessionist party
that her husband, Todd, belonged to for seven years and that she sent
a shout-out to as Alaska governor earlier this year. ("Keep up the
good work," Palin told AIP members. "And God bless you.")
