A kind word for a new Microsoft product

It is a pleasure to be able to say a kind word about the Microsoft Corporation for once: their new product Microsoft Forger really does seem to be the right tool for today's election campaign needs. In one convenient package it offers all of the many necessary features (1971 typefaces, randomized inaccurate centering, built-in spotting and blurring, etc.) for fooling not only the expert CBS staff with their many checks and balances but also the sleazy layabout know-it-alls of the blogosphere sitting typing in their pajamas and flaunting their Photoshop and their font analysis and their excruciatingly detailed knowledge of the standard features of common word processors.
