yes. the daily show on the new yorker cover.



This just the parts about the New Yorker cover. The whole show is on hulu, which has a really nicest embedding link trick of letting you choose start and stop times, so you can tune in for the Pierce Brosnan interview at the end on your own time. John Stewart gets a little "special commenty", but the clips of the media coverage alone are worth it.

This, though is the win, and Obama's missed opportunity to show that liberals aren't entirely humorless:
Obama's camp initially agreed that the cartoon was `tasteless and offensive'. Really? You know what your response should have been? It's very easy. Here let me put the statement out for you: "Barack Obama is in no way upset by the cartoon that depicts him as a Muslim extremist. Because you know who gets upset about cartoons? Muslim extremists. Of which Barack Obama is not. It's just a fucking cartoon."
