The July 21 issues of the New Yorker will portray the newly elected Obamas as “First Couple” all setup in the Oval Office. Michelle Obama is wearing militant garb with an AK-47 strapped to her back, Barack Obama in a Muslim turban. They are giving each other the now infamous “terrorist fist jab” with a portrait of Osama bin Laden on the wall as an American flag burns in the fireplace.

Anyone with half a brain should know that this is a satirical swipe at the lies and the people that believe them. This cover was clearly a direct dig at the “Cooters” who live in Appalachia who cling to their guns and religion.

Some Obama supporters and even the Obama campaign itself are up in arms. Bill Burton, an Obama spokesman said“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."

The McCain campaign in an email to The Politico from Tucker Bounds, agreed stating "We completely agree with the Obama campaign, it’s tasteless and offensive.” Way to take a hard stand against “smears” Mac!

Look at the original photo that the artist must have used. I love how Michelle Obama’s facial expression from the original photo was captured in the cover. Everything from the head tilt to the raised eyebrows to the ever present Michelle Obama down turned “smile”.
