We recently unearthed a box of our 2008 TMN Annuals, which are still relevant today, especially if you replace “McCain” with “Mitt.” If you’d like a copy, complete our 2012 Reader Survey by June 19, and we'll randomly select 25 of you to win a TMN Prize Pack containing an Annual as well as an “If a Bird Can’t Fly, It Walks” bumper sticker.
