On the New Yorker cover

The New Yorker was making fun of far-right loons who have made all sorts of crazy and false claims – from challenging Obama’s patriotism, to claims he is a secret muslim, to Fox New’s ridiculous “terrorist fist jab” remark.

If I were Obama I would laugh and get a copy of the cover signed by the artist. As it is, he ends up looking clueless and humorless.

I hope the campaign comes around and “gets it”.

It certainly is a disappointing election season so far.
