Barack Update

Next month's cover of The New Yorker will feature a cartoon of Senator Barack Obama. Isn't that great! Only, Barack is dressed in traditional Muslim garb, giving a "terrorist fist" jab to Michelle who has an AK 47 slung around her shoulder, sporting an afro, with a picture of Osama Bin Laden on the wall and a flag burning the in fire in the oval office.

I think this is very offensive. Its a failed attempt at satire, that in turn contributes to the misconceptions a segment of public already has of Barack. We wont see a cartoon of Bush, Cheeny, Kissinger, McCain and other Illuminatists flipping through bill folds of cash, laughing while standing on a huge pile of dead bodies.
