As we all know The New Yorker Magazine posted the most obnoxious cover in recent memory with it’s ‘satire’ of Barack and Michelle Obama. It was so obnoxious that I won’t post the graphic or even link to the magazine. They don’t deserve the traffic.
Vanity Fair has taken on the topic and has written a fine article about the screw-up at The New Yorker. It is the ultimate in unusual coverage because the two publications share the same building. To say the least The New Yorker doesn’t look good in this article or the cover.
This is appropriate pay back between magazines when one has crossed the line of civility.
Do I honest think that John McCain needs a walker or that Cindy McCain is a drug user? Of course not.
Yet this is the same treatment that Michelle and Barack Obama got from The New Yorker. Perhaps turnabout is fair play.
