2008_07_nyerob.jpgBarack Obama appeared on Larry King Live last night and topic number 1 was the New Yorker cover. You can read the transcript here, but Obama said, "I know it was the "New Yorker's" attempt at satire. I don't think they were entirely successful with it. But you know what, it's a cartoon, Larry, and that's why we've got the First Amendment. And I think the American people are probably spending a little more time worrying about what's happening with the banking system and the housing market, and what's happening in Iraq and Afghanistan, than a cartoon." Well, we can all hope.
