Satyrical or Offensive? You Decide

The new issue of The New Yorker Magazine has a very interesting political cartoon on it's cover, and people are going nuts about it even though it's only been out for less than a day. The cartoon features Barack Obama in Muslim garb and his wife, Michelle, with an AK-47 slung across her back. Both the Obama and McCain camps have issued statements denouncing the cartoon and The New Yorker Magazine for publishing it, but what does it really say for political opinion in America in regards to candidate Obama?

Here is the picture:

The cartoonist has issued a statement in which he said, "Retrospect? Outcry?" The magazine just came out ten minutes ago, at least give me a few days to decide whether to regret it or not..."

What do you say, America?

Once and Always, an American Fighting Man
