Obama on the New Yorker

Matt Belloni alerted Kenny Kellogg to this amazing New Yorker cover of Obama and his wife in terrorist garb. They're doing the terrorist fist bump, as Fox would call it, and have a burning flag, a picture of Osama and are heavily armed.

The Obama campaign is slamming it but I think it's brilliant. Only by showing how ridiculous the "Obama is a Terrorist" thinking really is will rid it as an issue. This is brilliant satire and brings an issue that Obama was running away from, to the forefront. He should laugh at it, showing how ridiculous it is and secretly thank the New Yorker.
