"Uh, oh...."


The over-the-top cover is actually a "distraction" from the substance of the must-read article itself. I'm sure the Obama campaign would love supporters to have a Danish cartoon moment, and focus upon the art cover to divert attention away from the piece by Ryan Lizza.

Just as we already knew. An over ambtious backstabber with no guiding prinicples. In other words, the same old same. Nothing new to report about with the Obama-say anything doll.The press has pumped him to be something he can never be, great.

It says quite a bit that this article would appear in the New Yorker. It is quite the writing, definitely.

Obama should be miles ahead in the polls this year, and despite it being a "Dem" year, with highly supportive press, he's running neck and neck.

Interesting times, indeed.

There is nothing new about Obama, except his ability to say there is something new -- in a way that those desperate to find a new Savior have FOUND their Savior. A Savior who speaks much but says little. He is no "change;" he is but more of the "same."

And the GOP and Conservatives should take careful note:

1. "Democrats don't win elections; Republicans lose them."

2. Though being in power, the Demorats couldn't stop FISA.

3. If McCain and the GOP and Conservatism are so "yesterday" then Obama should be miles and miles ahead of McCain, as he clearly has the DEM working entirely FOR him.

And still, it is no walkaway race.

Conservatives, GOP, are you listening? Are you hearing? Are you paying attention?

The power is the GOP's to LOSE.

Wow! That's a long article in the New Yorker. I read about half of it and will have to go back later to read the rest.

I thought the New Yorker was left-wing? Is it possible they were for Hillary. I don't buy what I'm hearing on Fox News where they report the New Yorker is saying they were making fun of Obama's detractors and that this picture is satire. The article seems to tell us differently. I think they are simply trying to make excuses.

Old Soldier sent me a picture through an e-mail today. It's of a sign that says "Voting for Obama is like a chicken voting for Colonel Sanders." I agree.

I haven't read the article yet, but I love the way the Left has revealed its pervasive lack of humor. The cover art is supposed to be a dig at the Right for the stereotypes [the Left believes] they hold about the Obamas. But the humorless Lefties are offended to the point of apoplexy over the New Yorker's "attack" on Obama.

Priceless!

Check out Obama's response today to the cover of the New Yorker:

(CNN) -- Sen. Barack Obama on Tuesday called a New Yorker cover that unflatteringly depicts him and his wife an unsuccessful attempt at satire that will probably fuel misconceptions he has long battled over the course of his presidential campaign.

But in an interview with CNN's Larry King, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee downplayed the impact of the illustration, which depicts him in Muslim attire in the Oval Office, with his wife, Michelle, carrying a machine gun.

"It's a cartoon ... and that's why we've got the First Amendment," Obama said. "And I think the American people are probably spending a little more time worrying about what's happening with the banking system and the housing market and what's happening in Iraq and Afghanistan, than a cartoon. So I haven't spent a lot of time thinking about it.

"I've seen and heard worse," he said. "I do think that, you know, in attempting to satirize something, they probably fueled some misconceptions about me instead. But, you know, that was their editorial judgment."...

Obama appears to be trying to strike some sort of balance. Clever, very clever.
