Woah!… Obama Camp Freaks Over New Yorker Cover
“We know what kind of campaign they are going to run. They’re going to try to make you afraid. They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young. He’s inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And, did I mention he’s black.”
Lashing Out Against Fearmongering Republicans
June 20, 2008
The Republicans are nothing…
It’s those nasty liberals that Obama has to worry about.
The New Yorker unveiled their latest magazine cover today:
Wow! They even have Osama hanging over the fireplace!
Hat Tip Bill Nelson
Look out for those nasty liberals, Obama.
The Politico reported on the latest outrageous fearmongering from the Left:
The Obama campaign is condemning as “tasteless and offensive” a New Yorker magazine cover that depicts Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) in a turban, fist-bumping his gun-slinging wife.
An American flag burns in their fireplace.
The New Yorker says it’s satire. It certainly will be candy for cable news.
The Obama campaign quickly condemned the rendering. Spokesman Bill Burton said in a statement: “The New Yorker may think, as one of their staff explained to us, that their cover is a satirical lampoon of the caricature Senator Obama’s right-wing critics have tried to create. But most readers will see it as tasteless and offensive. And we agree.”
McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds quickly e-mailed: “We completely agree with the Obama campaign, it’s tasteless and offensive.”
If you think the New Yorker cover is bad for Obama– read the article inside the magazine by Ryan Lizza on how the Chicago scene shaped Obama.
If the cover didn’t scare you about Obama- the content inside the magazine will.
Flopping Aces reviews the ugly article on Obama’s upbringing in Chicago-style politics.
The Corner has more on Obama’s Far Left loony response to the 9-11 attacks described in the Lizza article.
It is truly frightening.
