The New Yorker Cover

No this is just too funny not to see:

From Patrick J. Buchanan on Human

For 48 hours, editors Rick Hertzberg and David Remnick fended off attacks, assuring media interrogators the cartoon's purpose was not to satirize the Obamas but to satirize the caricature of Michelle and Barack in the mind of the paranoid right. Remnick insisted to The Huffington Post, "It's not a satire about Obama -- it's a satire about the distortions and misconceptions and prejudices about Obama."
Apparently,Barry Blitt at the New Yorker was trying to poke fun at the "conservatives' image of B. Hussein Obama and his wife". Unfortunately (for him), his attempt at satire has backfired in a big way.
