What the fuck was the New Yorker thinking?


When they did this?

I don't get it. Why would they show Obama dressed like that fist bumping Amy Holmes? And Why is she carrying a gun? It makes no sense.

It seems they are lampooning those idiots who see the Obama's this way.

The woman is Michelle Obama huh. I could have swore that was Amy Holmes.

Actually I think it's pretty good. So over the top it has to be satire. Unless you're Bill O'Reilly or someone and you really do see the Obamas that way.

It may be meant as satire but I kind of doubt the vast majority will see it that way...

It's been hard enough to separate the McCain campaign from satire as it is. Why make it even harder?

I think the New Yorker was trying to make a point with the cover and the story that it ran, but it really played into all the false crap about Obama that Fox and other unscrupulous "news outlets" have been turning out.

You're right ET. A LOT of people around where I live believe just about all of what the New Yorker had satired about Obama on its cover. Its alarming that so many people can be so easily misled.
