4. interesting .. did the national review one come out first ?
Cause that's pretty damn close to outright plagiarism.

5. Also theres a distinct difference in these two covers
one builds on kernels of truth while the other relies completely on lies. I think the one with the kernels of truth pulls off satire much better.

And of course the joke is the NY cover.

National Review would never put that cartoon on their cover.

14. Its not inside the magazine either.
Many of us had said that National Review would never do to McCain what New Yorker did to Obama. So somebody tried to make a joke about it and thats the cartoon.

The cartoon fails because it is not really the cover of National Review or in it for that matter.

22. ahhh so it a respons to the NYer

17. Again, for the mentally challenged: One cover is true, the other is not.

23. Horsey missed it by that much -- still, good cartoon though.
More finessed than the New Yorker's.

Now if he'd had McCain in Nazi garb with Bush in a Hitler pose on the mantel, and Cindy in a dalmation fur coat...
that might make a better comparison.

26. The problem is, There is Truth in Horsey's Cartoon, while NONE in the New Yorker's.

31. That's it exactly. No comparison. The New Yorker is a satire
of a lie, the McCain parody is based on fact.

30. Both lack wit or irony. There is an element of sarcasm in both but
it is used merely to reinforce personal stereotypes
So, neither are examples of satire.

1 : a literary work holding up human vices and follies to ridicule or scorn
2 : trenchant wit, irony, or sarcasm used to expose and discredit vice or folly
