Obama shrugs off New Yorker cover

"It's a cartoon. ... I haven't spent a lot of time thinking about it."

While everyone else chokes on the foam coming out of their own mouths, Obama manages to convey that he's not angry about being satirized and that he understood the magazine's intent; THEN, he apologizes to Muslims. I will go into a happiness coma if a man this calm and intelligent gets to sit in the Oval Office.

Speaking of elections & cartoons, this Kansan gets my vote, and he'd get my $8.34 too if I could use PayPal (can't. complicated.).

haven't seen any of the discussion of it, but i thought the cover was pretty funny - and obviously not a satire of the obamas but of the fear-mongering discourse surrounding them.
