Posted on 05/13/2012 1:06:55 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
Newsweek featured Barack Obama on the cover with a rainbow halo over his head with the title: "First Gay President." And now the DUmmies are angry because of the effect that cover will have on the election this year. I don't think Tina Brown was doing The One any favors when she chose that Newsweek cover. My thought is that the Newsweek folks and many other media liberals live in an insulated bubble which prevents them from seeing the damage that cover can do to the Bamster. However, many DUmmies are worried about this as well as ANGRY at Newsweek as you can see in this THREAD, "WOW, Newsweek Cover: "The First Gay President." So let us now watch the DUmmies work up a rage over the Newsweek "First Gay President" cover in Bolshevik red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, thinking that the only person angrier over that cover than the Dummies is Barack himself, is in the [barackets]:
WOW, Newsweek Cover: "The First Gay President"
[Sometimes even Newsweek is accurate.]
Since the President himself is not gay, "Pro-Gay President" would be more exact..n/t
[Either way, Ben Burch will take it.]
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
[Whispered the voice from the Seinfeld wing of DUmmieland.]
WTF??? I know..I'm dreaming...a well-meaning fourth grade student was allowed to write the copy for the cover of an internationally distributed magazine...or...DC Comics has a new Bizarro World mag disguised for April Fools... Jesus...no, i'm awake. Did someone tell Michelle about this, or like Rudy Giuliani's wife, who apparrently didn't know she was getting a divorce, did she have to hear this stuff from the media?
[I think Michelle knew about this long, long ago.]
Yeah, I kind of agree. Beltway folks and politicos will get it almost certainly...but it's going to cause the same sort of "Whaaa?" reaction from people that that goddamned awful New Yorker cover did, with Obama and his wife dressed up like terrorists, fist-bumping in the Oval Office did.
Wonder what Michelle will think of that.
[She will think that he is the first metrosexual president.]
I would hazard a guess that this won't go over well with some people while most everyone was fine with the media pronouncing Clinton "the first black President."
[It will go over quite well with Ben Burch.]
f*ck newsweek....the wingers will only see the headline....and believe it.
President Obama reads Andrew's Blog the Daily Dish.
[Did Newsweek dish out one secret too many?]
Unfortunately, some bigots who might otherwise vote for Obama will also be turned against him because of this. I absoutely wish that our society were mature enough and decent enough to elect a gay president--or a woman president, for that matter--but I do not think it is. Of course, I also wish I could trust the American people in general to udnerstand what is meant by this cover.
[Oh we understand the cover quite well. Hee! Hee!]
It Could Have Been Worse. They could have had him suckling the nipple of another man on the cover.
[Ben Burch just volunteered to be that other man.]
Between this and the Time magazine cover... It's amazing that news weeklies have lasted this long.
[This week I am predicting the biggest sales for Newsweek in years. Almost every gay bar in the country will buy a copy just to put that cover on their walls.]
Newsweak just screwed bambi, big time.....
I swear it’s like a FReeper infiltrated Newsweek’s editorial staff. Who thought that cover was a good idea?
I’ll bet Newsweak pulls this issue.....
If Time had a four year old suckling a breast, why didn’t Newsweek have Obama...
Oh, I better not. You know what I mean.
That reminds me.. Where’s Reggie Love?
Wonder if there’s a Vast Leftwing Conspiracy against Obie by the Clinton Gang. I certainly hope so, I’d love to see them go all Alinsky on his skinny beige ass....
Generally I take Obama covers and drop a different mag in front of them, or turn them around backwards.
But this one? I think Newsweek will get fanned out in front of every other magazine on the shelf, epecially in the check out lanes.
Its easy, just pick it up and set it down somewhere else. Preferably cover another Leftist rag.
That cover is a riot!
But they created controversy and will sell some magazines.. For a change. It’s all about mag sales! Maximum shock for maximum sales.
Listen very closely, you can hear the sound of everyone in the White House facepalming.
You bet they will retract it somehow.

Denial is not just a river in Egypt.
Moochelle hasn't chimed in yet. And these are - the days of our lives.
