Skip to comments.Caption the Cover of the New Yorker
Posted on 07/13/2008 10:12:42 PM PDT by AmericanMade1776
The magazine says the cover art, featuring Barack Obama and his AK-47-toting wife in terrorist garb in the Oval Office, with a portrait of Osama bin Laden above the mantel and an American flag burning in the fireplace, "satirizes the use of scare tactics and misinformation in the presidential election to derail Barack Obama's campaign." But the Obama campaign is denouncing the cover, saying The New Yorker's editors might believe the picture is "a satirical lampoon of the caricature Sen. Obama's right-wing critics have tried to create," but it is fact "tasteless and offensive."

Fine Line between Satire and Truth....Obama is so Lampooned, The save the Whales orgs are protesting. ha
If Satire is Truth, then is it still funny?
We fooled 'em
It will certainly get people to wondering out loud what they have been wondering privately.
The teflon has been wearing mighty thin. A crack like this could be fatal.
Guest list for the Obama White House Dinners ...Rev. Wright, Rev. Farakahn, Amanutjob from Iran, Kadafhi, Hugo Chavez, and Cindy Sheehan.
The Truth Hurts
Nonetheless, me thinks they protest too much!
They come across as very thinned skinned the Obamites about their Obamahdi.
Fact is, Obama has strong ties to Islam in his youth, and has indicated in his own books that if the winds of public opinion blow against the Muslims in this nation that he will stand with them.
He, to this day, can recite the Islamic call to prayer in fluent Arabic and calls the sound one of the most beautiful sounds on earth at sunset.
His troubles in this regard are of his own making and are a part of his makeup that he would like us to believe he is distancing himself from...but the problem is, he can't. They are who he is and the fact that he resorts to out and out lying about them, and getting so all fired worked up over such satire simply makes it all the worse for him.
As a result of his own willful close relationships of long standing with militant anti-Americans and his positions on the issues throughout his political career in the IL Senate and the US Senate, he is marked, and justafiably so as a militant anti-American himself and an abject marxist.
He may try to pass himself off as something quite different (and he and his campaign are straining at knats to do just that), but that is who he is.
This was the Dream of my Father ,Obama Sr , if only he had lived to see it.
Everyone needs to rush out and buy a copy of the New Yorker..the Cover is a Keeper.
Her BS about helping Obama is about as believable as an announcement that I am Spiderman.
Destroy him, Hillary!!!!
Cartoonist fist jab?
Mark for later, I’m sure this will be quite a thread!
Some Times the Truth can be Tasteless
I can’t wait to hear Rush’s take on this tomorrow.
