NY Is Not America

I just love that the rest of America is all of a sudden paying attention to New Yorker magazine covers. Hysterical.

    BTW: Some in Chicago are encouraging “some” in Obama’s campaign to “lighten up”. It isn’t good politics to have too thin a skin. “Da folks” know every pol is going to get skewered. If Barack shows indignation about stuff like this, the question will be asked, “What happens if the nation is really offended? How can he handle real adversity?”

    Right move here, have Barack laugh “with” the cartoon.
