Default The New Yorker cover with Obama




Truth? Or a good illustration of all the lies about Obama?

it's a sarcastic look at what the uneducated people of America think of Obama. They've been quite open about that. slightly tacky in my opinion, unless next weeks is one of McCain as Mr. Magoo who can't turn on a computer...

So, it's an editorial cartoon.

No worse than:

I guess I see implying someone is a terrorist in this current society as far worse then implying someone is a gun happy cowboy.

What was that movie where in the get-a-way scene the 'hero' yells "Al-Queda-terrorist!" and points at the cabbie so the mob will kick the shit out of the cabbie while the 'hero' steals the cab?

It is still an extremely sensitive issue (terrorism) and starts mob mentality where the second image does not. It plays off the fact that he is not a WASP which 90%+ of all our presidents have been.

Since almost everyone at the New Yorker will be voting democratic, I believe that it's called satire.

Crank with Jason Statham.

I laughed, and everyone else should too. I'm sick of the political correctness sensitivity shit.

If it was a cop in front of a donut shop, everyone would laugh.
The list can go on and on. Either we completely stop making fun of every single person and every single stereotype, or we all just lighten the fukc up and enjoy the joke.

Obama and his acolytes need to develop a thicker skin.

Much of the emotional response from the Obamites over this thing just serves to illustrate the "cult of personality" that is the Obama campaign. Their guy is too good to be criticized - and his enormous ego just soaks it all up.

Because everybody's nervous about appearing to be racist, he's getting more than usual media free ride from the media, and that's gonna pop. Then those ears, the flip-flopping, and the 15 whole months of Senate experience are gonna blow up in his face, and I suspect he'll not handle it well.

And like Kerry, that even more egomaniacial bitch wife of his will cost him...

Beside, how many rednecks who think he's a Muslim read "The New Yorker"?

It should be interesting reading the letters to the editor.

I didn't know that fist bumps had anything to do with terrorists.

I guess I've been a terrorist for about 15 years and the bar I frequent must be a terrorist meeting place.

I guess I looked at a different cover.

The one I saw had OBBY and his militant bride fist bumping.
