Anybody missed the Obama New Yorker cover controversy? Nope? Me neither. I the cover is a little... hmm... off color, but then again I also feel like some of the outrage seems outlandish. Is stuff like this going to deepen and extend the outrage into new territory, or is it just same shoe different foot?
Thoughts? An interesting question, to me, is something this cartoon really highlights, which isn't so much the content of the cartoon of the Obamas, but the fact that it ran on the cover of the New Yorker. I can't IMAGINE the National Review running a cover like the McCain one above. Maybe that just reflects how little I know about the New Yorker, but still... feel free to chime in.
