10. Yep. Whenever I want to treat my right-wing relatives to a good satire...
I always put on my DVD of Psycho. :)

No, I'm not missing your point. But considering that a magazine that is usually only noticed by latte-sipping elitists is getting national airplay by MSM for a cover that only reinforces the reactionary fears of people who need to be slapped in the face with context so they can GET the satire, then Obama doesn't benefit, so this attempt at satire doesn't work.
