can you imagine how balistic the RW whackos would go if this was ever actually put on the cover of a magazine, even a rat like NR?

5. That looks more like Hillary than Cindy
Bad drawing! Cindy doesn't have the big teeth smile, more like the GWB smirk.

8. Cindy should have a bottle of pills for herself as well
and of course this will never be on the National Review because they have a little bit of respect for this campaign while the New Yorker has none.

9. Note that the cartoonist is also taking aim at those who were upset over the New Yorker
cover, the "irony-challenged literalists." He is NOT agreeing with the people upset by that cover.

Barack Obama magazine flap shows an irony deficiency

By JAMES RAINEY
July 15, 2008

Chicago Tribune columnist/blogger Eric Zorn gave notice that he is waiting for the magazine to launch an equal-ink takedown depicting John McCain as "about 150 years old and spouting demented non-sequiturs in the middle of a violent temper tantrum while, in the corner, his wife is passed out next to a bottle of pills."

Actually, someone who has maintained a little more perspective already obliged. David Horsey, the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, riffed on the Blitt illustration with a McCain portrait of his own.

Horsey's image shows a drooling, wheelchair-bound McCain, singing "Bomb bomb bomb -- bomb bomb Iran," as wife Cindy pours dozens of pills from a vial and implores her husband, "Take some of my meds to get through the inaugural parade!"

Playing off the New Yorker cartoon, in which an Osama bin Laden portrait adorns the Oval Office, an American flag aflame in the fireplace, Horsey poses the McCains in front of a Dick Cheney portrait, their fire burning a copy of the Constitution.

Lest anyone miss the point, the cartoonist dedicates the piece to all those "irony-challenged literalists who were upset by the New Yorker's Obama-as-a-Muslim magazine cover."

That's coming from a self-described progressive who has put a world of hurt on President Bush but who said in an interview that he sees a disturbing "lack of irony or sense of humor" among some Obama supporters.

10. Highlights pretty well how silly this controversy is, I suppose.
