After thinking about it some, I still don’t think the New Yorker cartoon was that big of a deal. In fact, I am thinking about subscribing to them to make up for the addle-minded folks who will drop their subscription in outrage. The New Yorker is a good magazine. They did something edgy and something I think is pretty clever, and it isn’t their job to worry about the Obama campaign or what jackasses might do with their content. Their job is to put out provocative and interesting material, and having just read the Ryan Lizza piece, I am glad they put the cover out there.
It got my attention, and gave me a chuckle at the knuckleheads who spread these absurd memes about the Obamas. After some hesitance earlier, I think I like the over now. Let’s deal with this bullshit head on, and quit attacking the media. I am not backing down from the wingnuts and the World Net Daily crowd.
*** Update ***
I should probably also add that I am having a salad with mixed summer greens, a little romaine, and ARUGULA. SO SUCK ON THAT, RED STATE AMERICA. I will eat fancy sounding lettuce, vote for a black guy, and read east-coast liberals in the New Yorker. WTF are you gonna do about it?
In all seriousness, since I started buying varying types of lettuce in bulk, washing them and running them through the salad spinner and storing it in tupperware for use over a several day period, I am really enjoying my salads a great deal more. No more bags of salad for this boy.
