In the LA Times no less!
(Via FR) Roy Rivenberg presents Once again our jokes are on Cruz:
The Cruzinator is so ungrateful. Just because we aren't a rich Indian tribe lining his pockets with million-dollar checks doesn't mean we have nothing to offer.

On Wednesday, for example, we published the runner-up entries from our Cruz "Dances With Slot Machines" Bustamante Joke Contest. We had sponsored the competition because late-night comics have been mocking every gubernatorial candidate except the lieutenant governor, and we wanted to give his candidacy the legitimacy that comes with being a national punch line.

But did he thank us? Incredibly, no.

Today, we publish the contest champions. That's because we're givers. It's our nature to help.
First prize:
Memo to Cruz Bustamante: Alfred Hitchcock called. He wants his silhouette back.
