Warning: Satire Ahead

The Magazine Cover That Destroyed Earth continued to gain steam today. I thought I'd throw this cartoon from a few months ago back out there. It treads similar ground to the New Yorker cover although it contains a little more context with the words--a crucial factor in not ending the world with your confusing images.

Randi Rhodes is a staunch Obama booster. I caught a few minutes of her radio show today where she was railing against the cover. According to her, the illustration has made it "exponentially more difficult, if not impossible" for Obama's supporters to convince people who are on the fence to vote for him. "if not impossible?" I'm glad to see she has a sense of scale about the whole controversy.
