New Yorker Mag Declares Obamacare Victory With Cartoon Cover of Obama Feeding 'Petulant Children' of the GOP

Here’s another bizarre “victory lap” for Obamacare, courtesy of the latest cover of The New Yorker magazine. It shows a happy Obama spoon-feeding his medicine to Republican children.

Cover artist Barry Blitt proclaimed “I enjoyed drawing Ted Cruz, John Boehner, and Michele Bachmann as petulant children—and I especially wanted to draw an open-mouthed Mitch McConnell being spoon-fed his meds.”

The cover has no relation to an article inside the magazine. It's just meant to be topical -- and is drawing none of the outrage that Blitt's "Politics of Fear" cover with terrorist Michelle and Muslim Barack attracted in 2008, even though Blitt was mocking conservatives, then, too. Then announced that it "satirizes the use of scare tactics and misinformation in the Presidential election to derail Barack Obama's campaign."

Liberal journalists love mocking Republicans as in serious need of Obama's wisdom and care.
