This is the picture that has everyone in an uproar! On the cover of a magazine no less. And a major magazine at that, THE NEW YORKER. The publishers are saying it is satire and should be construed as such. Pro Obama supporters are both horrified and shouting foul, while others are saying it's satire, keep calm. But many people in America don't think it's satire. There are a lot of people who believe this is the real face behind the Obama facade. There are people who are truly afraid of this man, but no one seems to want to talk about that. Obama himself has said that he has a tough skin after campaigning all this time, and that it isn't bothering him at all, he sees it as an illustration that is coming across differently than it was meant, but that it is just human error, not anything malicious. So, what do you think? Do you think free speech is ok even when it may be libeling people? Or is satire a great way to libel people and get away with it. Or is it really satire? I don't know the answer. I think we may never find out if McCain is elected; and if Obama is elected, then, we will find out for sure! Remains to be seen.
