The New Yorker Obama Cover
"Satire lies about literary men while they live and eulogy lies about them when they die." -- Voltaire
Though I do not believe this to be an accurate description of Obama I do find it interesting. There is a reason that Barack Hussein Obama is portrayed here as a muslim. There is a reason that Michelle Obama is portrayed in an aggressive manner. There is a reason that the American flag is being burned in the fireplace. My concern is not that these things are completely true. My concern is that each of them have enough suspicion of having a shred of truth in them that thoughts like this come into the mind of the satirist. Not only that but the idea that people instantly associate these things with things they know or questions they have about Obama. Certainly food for thought.
