The _New Yorker_ Grows a Set

The venerable old pub used by hipsters everywhere to prove their intelligence ran a cover this week meant to skewer the retarded "Obama’s a terrorist" crap, complete with Obama in a turban, burning a flag beneath a portrait of Osama bin Laden and giving his AK-47-strapped wife a "terrorist fist jab". Apparently, some pea-brains are taking the cover literally, and even Obama’s camp (and McCain’s for that matter) has come out and called it tasteless and offensive. I’ve gotta say that even though I appreciate the New Yorker‘s brass balls, it’s sorta the last thing the Hope campaign needed right now. Hopefully they’ll balance it out with a McCain cover next week – diddling little boys while taking in a Reverend Hagee sermon, perhaps?

What do you think?

    The Obama people brought this on themselves. The cover would have gotten little notice if they did not respond to it. Notice this is a New Yorker cover, typically only seen by a 1000 little old ladies. That is the problem with these rapid response team

    Maybe the Obama people prefer that the talk be about the joke on the cover, rather than the story inside. …….. The story is all about how Obama is a master of the “inside game” of politics.
