About that Obama Cover

Blogger Bryan at Why Now? stopped by and was inspired in the Comments section to ask this question. On his own blog, he adds:
When some people are given lemons by life, they make lemonade. When the Obama campaign was given a bottle of Ch√Ęteau Lafite Rothschild, they turned it into vinegar.
Hey, Bryan! The good news is that if "Panic Bean" is from Northwest Florida, our species may not be quite as extinct as you think!

panicbean is living in, but not from, Gulf Breeze, thank you.

She grew up in Maine.

On a funny note, I took my old New Yorker magazines into the office I work in, placed them on the magazine rack for others to read, and one day heard this comment, "Hey who brought the leftist rag in here?"

I immediately owned up to it, and the person who posed that question happily left with 10 old issues of the New Yorker under his arm.

No balls, no blue chips. :)

Welcome to the coast, Panic Bean. We need all the help we can get.

As near as I can tell the lefty bloggers are saying that the New Yorker shouldn't have used that cover because people who would never read the magazine or vote for a Democrat wouldn't understand that it was satire and that would make them not vote for the candidate they weren't going to vote for anyway.

That seems to be the concept.

Personally, I think it's an excuse to cover the fact that they didn't get it.
