The politics of being inadvertently honest


“On the cover of the July 21, 2008, issue of the The New Yorker, in ‘The Politics of Fear,’ artist Barry Blitt satirizes the use of scare tactics and misinformation in the Presidential election to derail Barack Obama’s campaign.” New Yorker news release.

Probably the closest thing we'll see to actual Obama criticism for the next four years!

I bet the Obama campaign saw that cover and said: "Allah U Akbar! What are you infidels at the New Yorker trying to do to us?"


Seems like a pretty accurate political cartoon to me. Especially the American flag burning in the fireplace. That's Obama all over.

BTW, I'm running a little linking test in the comments section of your blog, Madame President. I hope you don't mind. ;)

Discount and OEM Software at Software Supply Group

Ambulatory products at JRS Medical

Bath Safety products at DME Supply Group

And, two links to my other blogs:
DME Supply Group Blog at LiveJournal (the jury is still out, BTW, on how good a blog LiveJournal is) and . . .

The Software Supply Group blog, which is also a marketing blog but includes lots of personal anecdotes from my life and work that are happy and safely generic, too. Alas, I link to a lot of pictures that come from our website, and because the way Yahoo stores work, they disappear over time. Nothing to be done about that, unfortunately.

Thanks for putting up with my somewhat potted-meaty positings . . . I'm conducting some tests on deep linking, and there are only so many places to "deep link". So I'm messing around. If I'm super successful and make a zillion dollars, I'll remember your help. I promise. Especially if you turn a blind eye if I do this again, sometime. ;)
