Epic Fail.

Seriously, the New Yorker was controversial because it was based on many commonly believed LIES about Obama and his wife, whereas this is not based on things people believe, so far as I can tell.

If you're going to do offensive satire, at least get it right!

Erykah Badu looks seriously pissed about being in a photo shoot with Zombie Reagan.

Irresponsible. Disgusting.

I'm canceling my subscription to The Stranger.

LOL. Poor Badu.

Giggle. The Art of Dying Indeed.

Though #2 does have a point--this fails to correlate well with the New Yorker's target--pervasive myths about the person or persons depicted. Clearly ya just threw this together on deadline. And Ronnie looks more like he has a headwound than wearing a turban. Still, points for trying.

Nice idea. Poor execution.

You people are crazy.

@1: I'm sure someone, somewhere, believes Ronald Reagan was a closet Muslim with jungle fever.

And if they don't, I'm sure after this, someone will.

A lame and desperate attempt to chime in on somebody else's great idea. ZZZZZZZZ.

I'm with #4. I want my money back!

I'm switching my subscription to "The Steinbacher"...

I'll tell you what makes my hair stand up all fuzzy and enormous whozeewhatsit!!!

I'd like a McCain cover with these features:

1. Dementia drool coming out the side of his mouth

2. Weeping melanoma ulcer on his neck

3. His hand hen pecking above a laptop with a giant question mark over his head and a "Duh?" expression on his face

4. George W. "12% approval rating" Bush depicted as a little man whispering instructions in McCain's ear.

5. One hundred twenty-seven tally marks on the wall under the heading "US Years in Iraq".

Oh it would be so sweet if the New Yorker would come out with a cover like this as an October surprise.

Who’s the old guy?

Posted by Drawmark | July 16, 2008 2:59 PM

HA! That's funny! Really funny.

That's the hairiest thing I've ever read.
