Headline of the Day

In honor of Election Day yesterday:

“It won’t mean a thing if they don’t win that swing”

In which newspaper did this one appear?

Actually, none — it was the winning entry in a headline-writing contest run by the Newseum, the DC-based museum for journalism.

A woman named Tara Jones sent in the winning entry, posted on the Newseum’s Facebook page, in a contest seeking a headline about the importance of swing states in the election.

President Obama no doubt would join in congratulating Jones…he took six of the seven closely watched swing states yesterday on his way to victory.
