Wingnut Explosion in Three...Two...One....

Vanity Fair Parodies a Parody....




In case the picture's not clear, John McCain's wife is holding a handful of pills (a possible reference to her previous prescription drug addiction) next to McCain in a walker (he's very very very old, remember) while the Constitution burns merrily in the fireplace and a picture of George Dubbya hangs on the wall.


Let the storm of wingnut indignation begin!

I expect to be particularly entertained by the convoluted explanations of how the Obama cover was no big deal and/or was funny, but THIS IS DIFFERENT! Because John McCain is a WAR HERO! And everyone should LAY OFF HIS WIFE, even though Michelle Obama is fair game, because...because...BECAUSE SHUT UP, THAT'S WHY!

Vanity Fair is letting us know that they get it, and morons like myself don't.

I feel condescended to!

The Biggest Dick is angry...

I would have put her in a cheerleader costume myself. Or at least holding a keg of beer.

It was bound to happen. Once they saw how many copies the New Yorker sold. Let the races begin for the most incisive satirical cover.

The Biggest Dick made a video.

He's angry.

I give this one a 2.3 on the rant-o-meter.

I like it. I liked the New Yorker one, too. I enjoy satire. I even enjoy the lampooning of satire. It seems I might be part of a dying breed.

You know, some ignorant folks even went so far as to cancel their subscriptions to the New Yorker because they were so offended.

People are just plain nuts.

Kent, one guy wrote in and said, not only would he not read the New Yorker any more, he wouldn't even come into the city again. Now THAT'S nutty.

Now that I'm done choking on coffee... That's so nutty it's awesome!

A keg of beer would have been fitting considering her family's money.
