What Did Obama Do To Anger The New Yorker?

Boy, Obama must have done something to really get the people at the New Yorker angry. So angry they have a cover picture of Obama that is epitome of right wing whisper campaings:

Obama as a turban-wearing Muslim, fist-pounding an terrorist-clad Michelle standing in the Oval Office? It seems we can now easily conclude The New Yorker is very much pro-Clinton and they hoping to destroy Obama’s chances in the general election so they can argue for a coup d’etat at the Democrat convention in Denver.  There is no other rational explanation for this kind of smear. There is even an Osama Bin Laden picture over the fire place where an American flag burns!

 Anyone missing the message: Obama Is Osama’s Man!

So if we elect Obama this fall we will be putting a supporter of Bin Laden in the White House. I knew it was going to get nasty in the Democrat Party, but I did not expect this! Wow. That is one big implosion going on in the Democrat Party. Looks a 7.5 on the political Richter Scale to me.

Addendum: Yes, I know they tried to call it a joke, but it re-affirms and gives credence to rumors best just ignored. Want to feed a rumor oxygen? Give it press coverage. Want it to go nuclear – run it on your front page. Here’s the supposed story behind the cover.

Addendum: Very few people are going to suffer through that ridiculously long story to find the connection. Et tu New Yorker?

    What’s amazing is that Obama’s first reaction to this, caught live when an interviewer showed him this for the first time was “I have no comment on that.”

    Pointing out once again that he has no idea what to say or even what to feel until he talks to his handlers and staff and is told what to say and what to feel. On his own, he’s a big zero.

    ….and what’s in the fireplace, a grenade? ……..and what is the symbol on the carpet, his new presidential logo?

    Certain liberal groups confuse shock value with reason. But I have to say I don’t see the angle, maybe they are trying to make such a joke of these issues by having this cover, but man.

  4. Obama couldn’t comment, or say it was “satire”, because when he first saw it, he knew it was the Truth!

  5. thus AJ, the question is raised: Is it STILL a “joke” or “Satire”, if it is mostly or all True?

    Is the “joke” really on the New Yorker, who in their Eltist, condescending and patronizing way of thinking that they were satirizing or pulling a “joke” on the “Right”, but in fact, got it exactly correct?

  6. robert verdi says:

    are the editors in such an ideological egg shell that they couldn’t see how stupid putting a picture of Bin Laden in the White House is?

    BOOSH, the JOOS and the BushitlerepthublikkkansMcChimphyHaliburtonites made them do it!

  8. New Yorker Magazine at the Newstand: $7.95
    AK-47 on the Black Market: $800
    American Flag buring in the Fire Place: $49.95
    Obama’s Native Costume in the Souk: $23.75

    When the New Yorker’s “Satire” turns out to be 100% TRUE: Priceless!

    The “joke’s” on them!

    If this is some kind of attempt to defuse the rumors with “satire”, it’s an incredibly stupid move.

    There are legitimate questions about Obama’s history of associations with all sorts of anti-American types, and this focuses attention right on them. If it’s a “haha, those silly crazy rightwingers” cover, it’s going to blow up in their face.

  10. jb: I think it already has, and I think its going to reinforce the EXACT imagines the Obama campaign has been trying to supress for six months or longer, and I think its going to help tank him, and I think I’m not being overly optimistic here…

    Dale, I swear this has been the most surreal political season I have ever witnessed.

    “BOOSH, the JOOS and the BushitlerepthublikkkansMcChimphyHaliburtonites made them do it!”

    I’m waiting for the JOO YORKER namecalling to begin…

  12. That’s what happens when 45% of the country’s population has lost their collective Hive-mind, and nominated an Empty-suited failure of a racist, Anti-American/Pro-Jihadi Leftist Marxist-Muslim practicing “Taqiyah” candidate; and the other side has nominated a aged, addelpated RINO clown, that 60% of the party can’t stand nor trust!

    The only saving grace for McCain, as far as I’m concerned, is at least he will do what is best for America, on the International front; and that already makes him head and shoulders above Obama.

    Such are the pitfalls of a ridiculous two-party system!

  13. kathie says:

    The New Yorker said everything that the Republicans couldn’t. Most won’t read the article, many believe Obama is a Muslim, and the rest they probably haven’t seen or heard, but some 527 will have that picture all over the air ways. Holy Cow what a blunder!

  14. frankly, I think it puts Da Vinci to shame; it’s beautiful!

    In fact, it’s such a Faux Pas, that Karl Rove HAD to be behind it!

  15. ivehadit says:

    They are trying to put Hillary in. Denver will be the place where it all happens.

  16. dave m says:

    I don’t think it’s a smear.
    I think Obama is a muslim.
    I think Obama is hiding in taqiyya
    And I think that if elected he will do his best to neutralize
    American power in the world and give rise to an islamist
    calip hate in the middle east and africa.
