New_yorker The Associated Press reports:

"Barack Obama's campaign says a satirical New Yorker magazine cover (click to enlarge) showing the Democratic presidential candidate dressed as a Muslim and his wife as a terrorist is 'tasteless and offensive.'

"The illustration on the issue that hits newsstands Monday, titled 'The Politics of Fear' and drawn by Barry Blitt, depicts Barack Obama wearing sandals, robe and a turban and his wife, Michelle, dressed in camouflage, combat boots and an assault rifle strapped over her shoulder - standing in the Oval Office."

What do you think?
