The New Yorker’s Obama Cartoon
by

I don’t understand why there isn’t more outrage over the New Yorker Obama cover on the right. The cartoon is intended to make fun of conservatives as ignorant racists, and essentially marginalize any criticism of Obama as moronic. Remnick tells the Huffington Post that, “it combines a number of images that have been propagated, not by everyone on the right but by some, about Obama’s supposed ‘lack of patriotism’ or his being ‘soft on terrorism’ or the idiotic notion that somehow Michelle Obama is the second coming of the Weathermen or most violent Black Panthers. That somehow all this is going to come to the Oval Office.” Meanwhile, Jonah Goldberg writes that, “it’s almost exactly the sort of cover you could expect to find on the front of National Review.” Doesn’t that kind of prove Remnick’s point?
