When “Satire” goes too far: The New Yorker

This cover of The New Yorker goes overboard in its claim of “satire”.  Both McCain and Obama have called the cover “tasteless and offensive”.  And, yes, I get it … many believe that Obama is Muslim, that Michelle is anti-American, that both would destroy the nation, etc.  But giving an image to this nonsense doesn’t help the cause any.  Even if the candidates choose to run a “clean” campaign, how can they do it when this kind of nonsense is out there?  Let’s stick to the issues.

PS – Not to be outdone, Vanity Fair satirizes this cover!
