Is it incendiary or satire? Or tasteless as both the Obama and McCain camps declare it to be. Both camps want to maintain a high moral tone throughout the campaign. (I think there is a consciousness on both sides that whoever might make the mistake of a sudden or inadvertent descent to gracelessness could actually lose the race thereby!). Now, there are probably some people out there for whom the satiric humor in the New Yorker cartoon might be lost altogether, on both sides of the aisle!
Now whether it is "a change we can believe in" or "the right kind of change", both candidates have been creating a "centrist landscape" out of remarkable agreement on once divisive issues: immigration, nuclear weapons, global warming and stem-cell research.
I'm sure the New Yorker will get around to cartooning John McCain too.
I don't know about y'all but I guess I like West Coast humour a lil better. Here's the latest monologue from Jay Leno on Barack Obama...
"It was quite a weekend, politically. Yesterday, an estimated 75,000 people attended a Barack Obama rally on the banks of the the Willamette River. ... And if you believe the media, listen to this. After the rally, Barack Obama fed them all with just five loaves of bread and two fish. Amazing!"
