    Apparently McCain has condemned the cover as offensive too.

    This is just the latest example of ancillary support for my thesis that we are becoming a nation of pansies. I blame the feminists. :badgrin:

    For the cover or for the fact that you're a pansy?

    I wrote them this morning. When a major magazine engages in what is stereotyping terrorism and through association paints an American citizen and presidential candidate with that image every citizen should speak loudly against this nonsense. It perpetuates false information and demonstrates the stupidity that passes for news in MSM today.

    Ironically, they published it as an ironic statement about the nonsense the right wing loonie squads are mass mailing all over the internet.

    I don't who the editor was that approved it, but I'm betting he's on somebody's carpet for this gaffe.

    The reaction from Obama's camp makes him look weak. Didn't he actually once pose for a picture in a turban and a skirt?

    Yeah, people missed that entirely. The publication was supposed to make the right-wingers look foolish. New Yorker is hardly a conservative mag.

    One would have to have read the New Yorker occassionally.

    I'm guessing few people hereabouts are big New Yorker readers.

    But you'd think the people making the big fuss over the cover would likely know a bit about the New Yorker and what they were saying with it...

    That's rich. I'll have to find a copy.

    Way to tweak everyone's noses at once, NYer.
