An artist recently depicted Barack and Michell Obama as terrorists and supporting Bin Laden and other completely over-the-top images for the cover of The New Yorker magazine.
I'm not going to show it to you, because the image is just too ironic for lots of people--they won't get it and will only feel supported in their poor judgment of Obama.
Instead, let's look at a photo of the Obama family.
That's better. That shows the loving family that they are. It's always nice to see that. I'll pretend that people know that The New Yorker cover is satire and irony and does not depict Obama's true intentions and motives, rather it illustrates the ludicrous notions floating around the airwaves and blog posts of the right. It's a slam against ignorance. In one image everything outrageous was captured and shown to be so ridiculous...but, many people believe that kind of tripe. So, it ends up not being funny. It's actually desperately, desperately sad.
So, I'm just going to pretend, as I said. *hands over ears* La la la la la la la la la --I can't hear you New Yorker!! Not even Goings on About Town, not any of the witty, topical cartoons. No. None of the sophisticated essays and theater reviews. None of it. You are persona non grata to me now. La la la la la la la...
