3. This is a fake cover. They are not actually using it.
I think Vanity Fair is making the point that it was a dumb decision by the New Yorker to give over their front cover to an anti-Obama cartoon in the name of so-called "satire".

But if you believe Jon Stewart and half the folks here on DU - pretty much anything goes if the person publishing the cartoon says it has a satirical intent.

14. I thought the New Yorker cover was a great shot at the right.. It was published for readers of the
New Yorker, who cares if people who don't read it get it or not. It wasn't published for them.

15. If it was a great shot then it would have hit the target.
As things stand, most people have no clue who was the intended target of that New Yorker cover.

Even worse, most folks probably assume it was making fun of Barack and Michelle Obama.

19. Not with the readers of it. The others, who cares if they get it. It wasn't published for them.

16. Many of us do care
Barack Obama also told CNN that he thought the cartoon had missed its target.

4. I think it's funny
but I thought the New Yorker cover was funny too.

I wonder how many people who found the New Yorker cover offensive and out of bounds will find this funny?
seems like it would be a tad hypocritical

11. I think both represent the views of extremists
and are amusing because of it.
I'm no McCain fan.. I do think he's way too old, I do think he poses a threat to the constitution... but I recognize that those are my opinion.

13. "extreme" to recall that CM was hooked on drugs and that JM is old and that they support the
degradation of The Constitution? How so?

18. you apparantly only read the title of my post
I think McCain would be terrible for the constitution... and there are people who feel the same way about Obama.
It's my opinion... and no matter how convinced I am of that I recognize that it's my opinion.

I don't think McCain would burn the Constitution in his fireplace anymore than I think Obama will be walking around the Oval Office wearing a turban. Those are both extreme depictions.

If you really think one image was "true" and the other "offensive" then you should engage in some serious introspection about how you apply value judgments to things you agree/disagree with.
