The New Yorker is a literary humor magazine. They publish dozens of issues a year. Many issues have covers. Many covers are satirical. Sometimes they are funny. Sometimes they are not funny.
The internets are some kind of interconnected tubes. Many of the tubes connect to conspiracy theorists and their theories. Some tubes go to the Vatican and some tubes go to The Stranger. Some go here. Some go there.
I am going shopping. With a reusable bag.
Why will they print Hillary Rodham Clinton’s name but never write his middle name?
I don't ever recall the MSM printing "Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton," do you?
Pssst, her middle name is Diane, in case you were wondering.
Isn't Mike in MO 'Mexican'? I think it's time to do some waterboarding....
You're almost right @ 3. I'm a moslem posing as a mesican.
Also, the Muslim controlled United Nations? Who knew?
I hate the gooks. I'll hate them as long as I live.
What? You didn't love the sly sideways glance of the Barackster on that wicked New Yorker cover? You can really track who's who by whether people find it tastelessly funny or a "down right indignity", suddenly becoming their own "Stalinist Grandpas". (There is no laughter under the high flying red banner, by the way). There seems to be a continuum for senses of humor -- the more doctrinaire one is, the less humor one finds in satire about your own side. Or the more downright devoid of humor. Laughter is uplifting, smirking ain't. The humorless have no trouble smirking, tho'. It must use fewer muscles. (I know it uses fewer grey cells). Let's see who is laughing when some of us, whoever that may be, get our wish on election day. As they say, be careful what you wish for.
Muslims sneaking over the border disguised as Mexicans? Well, that would certainly explain why Taco Del Mar recently added falafel to its menu...
@4: That's what surprised me! I had no idea that the Muslims controlled the UN. I guess that's why so many Muslim nations are permanent members of the security council...
Communists were much more campy boogy men.
How I miss the Greatest Generation.....
I've never read or heard the MSM report McCain's middle name, but I'm pretty sure it's Vlad the Impaler.
I think the prospect of an intelligent president must be as shocking to these people as the prospect of a negro one.
I got that email, but I couldn't reply, as I'd already received an email from an African Prince promising me money from an inheritance.
Mike in MO, it's not Muslims who control the UN, it's Jews.
Jews also control the banks, the media, and are behind the Masons, the CFR, and the Trilateral Commission.
All of which Obama supports.
Which means Obama is really a Jew, not a Muslim.
Sidney! McCain's middle name is Sidney!
Oh, that'd be great if Obama brought up that sissy middle name... oh wait, Obama has gone by Barry...
Barry vs. Sidney... they're both secret Jews, aren't they?
I've been gone for awhile (rainbow gathering) it's good to be back on condotal hill.
anyway, most people out there weather left or right are authoritarian basterds if there political orthedoxy is skewed in some way
I belive leftists are worse though because they belive that there views represent "freedom" like right wingers. only instead of moveing on to another subject besides politics and trying to find commen ground (my republican friends are this way) they will tear into you and even use violence because they truely belive you are an evil faciest pig who likes the smell of napalmned babies...many of them cant seem to look past a persons political views because there idenity is so wraped up in being "radical" that it has become there life.
as for the picture itsself? mildly amusing.
ugh reading this e-mail makes my brain hurt.
for the last time: michelle obama cannot be racist. she can damn the white race. she can be a black nationalist. she can threaten to take away white voting rights or civil liberties or whatever the fuck these fear-mongers think she's going to do. but she can only be PREJUDICED. never racist. not in this country, with this country's history and current power structure. please, find a new word to misuse.
it almost makes me miss for those reagan salad days and the term "reverse racism." at least that verbal fallacy paid lip service to the fact that american racism is usually perpetuated by whites
on a wierd side note does anyone else find it a sad commentary on how we judge people in america when we call barack and he call's himself "black"?
think about it. except fo his name and the pigment in his skin his father didint do shit for him, just ditched him and his mother...obama was raised by his WHITE mother, his WHITE grandparents and his IDONESIAN step realitives...culturaly he is white with a smattering of the south sea's.
but why does he call himself black?
well do you think that when people first met him, looked him in the eye and shoke his hand (thats if they did so) that they judged him as a well spoken ,well traveled civilised man or a black guy who should be pounding bass,talking jive and either being comic relief or a threat, a ni--er in other words? so of course when few will accept and embrace you as you are culturaly and judge and catagorize you as somthing alien, then your going to embrace it. barack obama did this..in a seemingly desperate and awkward way, which is why there's all this talk of him not being "black enough". culture is more important then pigment...barck obama is an intelligent,well travled,classy,civilised man catagorized as belonging in a culture which glorifies ignorance,disreguard for familys and women and petty violence
now before you start screaming "racism" I've kicked it with and know an assload of kick ass black people who are chill to be around and dont act like a piece of trash
and ion the other side of the coin I've had the misfortune of knowing a hella hella hellof ton of white scum who should be steralized to save civilisation... when I say civilisation, i dont mean the enviromental destruction,imperialism, and general rape pillage and opress I mean the concepts of "the golden rule"treating people with dignaty, love and respect, shareing and working towards a commen goal....shit thats not civilisation...what is that?
Seeing how John McCain's middle name is Sidney, I request that Dan Savage use his Savage Love column to popularize the initials JSM--pronounced "jism"--for speaking of McCain.
We won't support ball-less NO-Bama and will re-defeat him in November!!!!
People like you make me very sad. You want to know why Muslims have become radical, suicidal, murderous extremist? You want to know why there are black people who cannot be proud of this nation? It's white people.
Never underestimate the stupidity of the American people. People like Carroll are proof of that.
We will never surrender until we've looted America's middle class of every dollar they have!
@16, black people can absolutely be racist.
So can hispanics, asians, whatever.
It's part of being human.
Having said that, it's also true that black people - at least in America - have never been in a position to use the government to discriminate against whites or anyone else.
Ultimately, however, it doesn't matter what race it comes out of. It's still the same poison.
Bah. Try exposeobama.com or hcsfjm.com for real O Panic from the nut-o-cons.
you wrote: it's also true that black people - at least in America - have never been in a position to use the government to discriminate against whites or anyone else
i wrote (earlier): not in this country, with this country's history and current power structure.
so um, we are pretty much in agreement? i also don't think michelle obama has ever said anything "poisonous" regarding white people. everything she has said or written has been merely calling out the racist white power structure or reminding people racism still exists. which, to some people, somehow gets interpreted as being racist.
