Election update

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama's campaign is furious over a New Yorker mag cover illustration of a Muslim-garbed Obama fist-bumping his wife, Michelle, wearing an Angela Davis afro, a camo jumpsuit, and a rifle slung over her shoulder. An American flag burns in the fireplace.

Obama's camp calls it "tasteless and offensive." So for that matter does presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain's camp.

The New Yorker insists it's just satire.
Turns out, they both just need to get a sense of humor.
