Latest New Yorker cover mocks conservatives

The lefty New Yorker magazine is out with its latest outrageous cover, which depicts President Barack Obama feeding medicine to Kentucky U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell. Lined up behind McConnell, ready to receive their medicine, are Michele Bachmann and Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz.

The New Yorker cover’s message, it appears, is that Republicans will have to line up for a dose of medicine after the “success” of Obamacare and the alleged 7.1 million people who signed up for it.

But it appears the whole cover was just an excuse to mock Republicans and gloss over the real news about Obamacare, which is that it’s a disaster and that 7.1 million number may be inflated.

The New Yorker cover artist, Barry Blitt, said of the cover, “The whole enterprise was just an elaborate excuse. I enjoyed drawing Ted Cruz, John Boehner, and Michele Bachmann as petulant children – and I especially wanted to draw an open-mouth Mitch McConnell being spoon-fed his meds.”
