About that New Yorker Cover

Everyone in the liberal blogosphere seems to have their knickers in a twist about the latest New Yorker cover. Personally, I think the cover is brilliant; beyond that I have three more things to say about it:

1. Just because you don’t get a joke doesn’t mean it’s not funny.
2. Just because you can’t see the satire doesn’t mean it’s not there.
3. Just because the right-wing is so batshit insane that they attempt to defy satire on a daily basis, doesn’t mean that we don’t still have to make fun of them.

Tom Tomorrow, of course, is all over this, and this post in particular is a must-read.

Jon Swift (please note the name) also has an excellent take on the matter.
