Reel ‘Toons | Barack Obama and John McCain

17 07 2008


The hits keep coming for the campaign for Senator Barack Obama. Another week brings more campaign cartoons as he plans his first foray to foreign soil as the presumptive Democratic nominee.

While media types of all political persuasions (including this blog) aggressively attacked the New Yorker for it’s cover of Senator Obama, two new cartoons have emerged, one for the Illinois senator and the other for his opponent Senator John McCain.

The McCain cartoon on the cover of the National Review is in response to last week’s New Yorker cover showing McCain in a wheelchair muttering incoherently while his wife Cindy tries to get him to take his meds. Over his mantle is a picture of Vice President Dick Cheney while the Constitution burns in the fireplace. Meanwhile the latest New Yorker cover again features Senator Obama and his wife Michelle as Orthodox Jews in Hassidic dress in contrast to his Islamic attire from the previous cartoon. The couple are referred to as . . . Mr and Mrs. Baruch Obama!

Because turnabout is fair play, maybe we all just overreacted. In my original piece, we were concerned that the New Yorker’s original cartoon would give Obama Haters ammunition to use against him. Well the fact of the matter is if you still think that he is Muslim, was raised in Muslim schools, is an elitist, took his oath of office on the Koran or any other silly, nonsensical view and you are too lazy to get the REAL facts, that says a whole lot more about who YOU then Senator Obama.

Maybe Daily Show host John Stewart was right – they’re JUST cartoons, people!
