This news is several hours old, but a liberal-wet-dream spoof edition of the New York Times was sold this morning at subway stations all over Manhattan. Maybe I can still snag a copy — it’s only 4:17 pm right now. If anyone has an extra copy I’ll meet them somewhere in Manhattan and pay good money.

The guys behind it are The Yes Men, about whom a 2003 doc was made. Here’s the press release that went out announcing it.

Dated July 4, 2009, the publication imagines a utopian, Obama-ized reality with the Iraq War over and done with, national health care established, a flush economy, taxation of the fat and loaded, the oil companies financing a study of climate change, and…wait, Thomas Friedman‘s resignation?
