Have you picked up your copy of the New Yorker?
If you haven’t heard the New Yorker Magizine published a very controversial cartoon on the cover with Barack Obama and Ms. Obama. If you can’t tell the image has Sen. Obama dressed as a middle easterner in the oval office of the White House. Not that a Muslim nor a person dressed in Middle Eastern clothing has ever been there. The appalling part is the picture of Osama Bin Laden over the fireplace with an American Flag burning. If that wasn’t enough Ms. Obama is dressed as a terrorist with an assault rifle slung over her shoulder.
If the picture didn’t speak a thousand words I will add my own few. This illustration is completely the lowest blow in campaign politics I have witnessed. I’m not old enough to remember the Watergate Hotel break but this is bad. It doesn’t matter what you party affiliation… This is dirty politics. We may never know who, what, or why this cartoon was commissioned but it is wrong. It is wrong! Really that is all that can be said about it.
