Cover Crimes: Barack Obama Edition

The upcoming issue of the New Yorker, the July 21st issue, has a picture of Barack Obama, depicting him and wife Michelle on the cover. It shows Michelle with an Afro and an AK 47. and the two of them doing the fist bump. Barack is looking quite Middle Eastern, and is sporting some kind of turban-type thing on his head! Osama Bin Laden’s over the mantle, and the American flag is burning in the fireplace.

Politico reports that Barack, when told of the upcoming issue said:

“I have no response to that.”

But Michelle’s stylists will!

The magazine explains at the start of its news release previewing the issue: “On the cover of the July 21, 2008, issue of the The New Yorker, in ‘The Politics of Fear,’ artist Barry Blitt satirizes the use of scare tactics and misinformation in the Presidential election to derail Barack Obama’s campaign.”

I’m sure Senator Obama is THRILLED for The New Yorker’s help! Snarkista imagines the satiric New Yorker will be great fodder for fearmongers who will take it quite seriously. The Obama girls, however will be PISSED and are probably shooting a response video right now. Don’t cross those Obama girls, ‘cuz they will cut a bitch. With LIPGLOSS.
