And your point would be?

Photobucket

The New yorker has stirred up controversy and is been hailed as going too far with this cover depicting presidential candidate Barack Obama as a Bin laden fan and his wife as some sort of vigilante.
"He seems a little thin to be giving
orders to anyone,"
"Would he be the first President with exposed ribs?"
Obviously they would prefer someone with irregular breathing and making the 'all you can eat shrimp' less than 99 cent? Only in America! So is this Satirical fun or just wrong?

Thoughts?

I think satire is something anyone in the public eye can be ridiculed by but I'd say this one oversteps the line of good taste/political correctness. On the wrong side that is.

You're about 3 weeks LATE with this story. Old, old news now. Get with the zeitgeist.

I think this is intended to ridicule the way Fox News has depicted them.

I'm with Junkii. I'm sure this isn't an actual dig at Obama but more of a dig at the ridiculous claims Fox News has been putting about.

Though I can see how people would get offended.

One thing i love about this blog is how bait the new bee's make them selves look with posts like your late etc!

THIS IS A BLOG THAT GETS ALOT OF COMMENTS AND READERS...WHY?

Because we discuss things new and old but the point is we discuss!

A heck of lot of things are thrown into the pot from fashion to art so if something is posted a little after all the other blogs obsessed with being first...SO WHAT

we aim to talk buss joke and keep it moving...

ADMIN!

why thankyou ^^^

i hate the better never than late mentality. whats late to you might be fresh news to somebody else. and thats what its about... sharing something with as many people as possible.

and yeah shenanigan, when this first came out I found it ridiculous and still do. its not satire, it covers several of the smears that have dogged his campaign... that hes a secret muslim, one who hates america and that michelle harbors black panther esque enmity towards white society.

its a succinct yet poor, poor attempt at satire from the new yorker.

I think its Satire , but some will see it & not see that. They will just see the burning flag in the fire, the 'islamic' dress etc etc. A lot of people will think they agree with Fox's smear campaign.

I agree with the other anon's to a point, because if your going to deal with current affairs (not history) then make them current not weeks old. It's like waching 'have i got old news for you'.

Dont be defensive just expressing an opinion.
