Politically (In)correct?


This is the New Yorker’s satirical lampoon which appeared in the magazine’s cover on its July 21, 2008 issue which drew flak from both sides of the political aisle.

The Democratic and Republican parties were quick to notice and condemn the illustration which depicted Barack Obama in a Moslem nightgown and wife Michelle in military boots with AK47, as “tasteless and insensitive.” The caricature artist attempted to make fun of the misinformation used in the on-going presidential campaign—a move some consider to be inflammatory, but others believe to be part of the normal journalistic tradition.
