Bad Form!*

I get what they are trying to say with the cover.

And if you actually read the articles in that issue of The New Yorker it makes sense.

But most people are just going to see the cover and that’s why it doesn’t work..

Because The New Yorker doesn’t put copy on its covers (a simple line like “Scare Tactics: How the GOP is painting Obama” would have quelled this entire controversy), the image has to explain itself and it doesn’t. It just looks like an offensive, out of context caricature of Barack and Michelle Obama.
