    But SS-she woulkn't have looked terrorist enough in a pink suit and perfect hair!

    it's sad that we live in a world where satire of this sort is almost socially irresponsible because there are too many stupid people that won't get the joke.
    ballsy move though. maybe it will bring the debate to more people. one can hope.

    I would like to see Mrs. McCain as a terrorist but she looks too much like she would be saying "Here, have a bite of this poison apple!"

    But see, everyone would LAUGH at that, including McCain.

    That's true in many respects but this is satirical- it's meant to be ironic, it's supposed to be poking fun at racism, stupidity and the extreme right.


    I think the PC Police will have a field day with this cover though.....

    ^^that's very true, I wish race and gender were non-issues for everyone, it would make this presidential race (and life) so much easier

    I guess I can also see why the Obama campaign finds this offensive (and even though it's satire, some people just won't get it), but on the other hand they shouldn't worry too much about it- those people probably wouldn't have voted for him to begin with

    What people are you talking about? You can't have it both ways. Are the people who will cast their votes for McCain, only doing so because he is white? True there might be a few people who want to vote for him because he will make History as the first black President, but then there is everyone else who is voting for him based on party lines, and issues.

    Maybe, my sense of humor has dwindled down to a pinch, because I see nothing about this funny. Yes, I have a problem with the picture... A black woman with an Afro, holding an AK47 will bring up the ignorance and fear in a lot of people. Also, with people still thinking that he was raised muslim, went to a an Islamic school even after all the Christian church crap..you have him in full garb!!
