Newsweek’s Tina Brown sees dead people

Tina Brown is channeling Haley Joel Osment’s character in The Sixth Sense,

Newsweek photoshops Kate Middleton, late Princess Diana together on magazine cover

Daily Beast founder Tina Brown paid a tribute to the late princess by writing up a “Diana at 50” article, which describes what Lady Di would have been like had she not been killed in a Paris tunnel crash nearly fourteen years ago.

How do you spell p-r-o-j-e-c-t-i-o-n?

Remarriage? At least two, I suspect, on both sides of the Atlantic. Always so professional herself, she would have soon grown exasperated with Dodi Al-Fayed’s hopeless unreliability. After the breakup I see her moving to her favorite city, New York, spending a few cocooned years safely married to a super-rich hedge-fund guy who could provide her with what she called “all the toys”: the plane, the private island, the security detail. Gliding sleekly into her 40s, her romantic taste would have moved to men of power over boys of play. She’d have tired of the hedge-fund guy and drifted into undercover trysts with someone more exciting—a high-mindedly horny late-night talk-show host, or a globe-trotting French finance wizard destined for the Élysée Palace. I suspect she would have retained a weakness for men in uniform, and a yen for dashing Muslim men. (A two-year fling with a Pakistani general, rumored to have links to the ISI, would have been a particular headache to the Foreign Office and the State Department.)

Well, at least we know who Tina would like to boink.

Where is Dr. McCoy when we need him?

She’s dead, Tina.

UPDATE, Thursday 30 June,

But it’s worse than creepy. It’s highly derivative–pretty much the exact same idea as National Lampoon’s February 1977 cover, “JFK’s First 6,000 Days.”
