It's funny... period.

It's called satire. Just because The New Yorker thinks you're smart enough to get it without labels and thought balloons doesn't mean you have to prove them wrong (yes, Obama, this means you too). Maybe Limbaugh is right. Maybe the outrage over Bush and Co. has killed the sense of humor of most liberals. It's called satire and it's a pretty sharp parody at that. Going crazy because you think that someone else isn't going to get it is the epitome of stupidity, and the founding block of censorship. If you don't think it's funny, so be it. But don't be so stupid to think that The New Yorker is suddenly pulling for McCain. And certainly don't be one of those people who is terrified that someone else isn't going to get the joke. Liberals need to learn to laugh at ourselves again, otherwise the right-wingers really do win.
