The New Yorker's Washington correspondent has been denied a press place on Barack Obama's tour of the Middle East and Europe after the magazine depicted the presidential candidate as a terrorist on its cover.
The Obama camp said there was not enough room on the aircraft but the move is being seen as a snub to the magazine.

Obama "brushed off" the cartoon, and also the author of the article Ryan Lizza.
What a petty little man.
And SOME want him to be our next president.
Another fine example of free speech in the HUSSEIN nobama era.......
Funny... He has a new plane

Obama’s New Plane To Meet Him Overseas
Posted by Maria Gavrilovic| 7
(CBS)From CBS News’ Maria Gavrilovic:
(CHICAGO) Barack Obama’s campaign unveiled a newly painted and refurbished 757 plane tonight, just an hour before the traveling press corps is to depart to meet up with Obama on his trip to the Middle East and Europe trip. Obama will not to be on the debut flight of his new plane; as he is currently in the Middle East.
The official campaign plane has the words Change We Can Believe In written across, while the tail is fully clad with the campaign logo on it. The inside of the 757 was refurbished with new carpeting and brand new leather seats for Obama and his staff.
Currently 40 members of the press and 20 staffers are aboard the campaign plane and en route overseas.
I can think of another great orator that ascended ethereally to power...his country didn’t fare well in spite of it’s dominance in many fields, from manufacturing to medicine and science in general. ...’twas back in the ‘30’s as I recall.
Hey, the New Yorker made out like a bandit here. That trip is going to be a waste of time.
Imagine if Bush snubbed Helen Thomas for her dumbbutt questions.
” The inside of the 757 was refurbished with new carpeting and brand new leather seats for Obama and his staff.”
Good to hear those idiots donating to the Obama campaign know what their donations are going for.
Few things are more important to the liberal press than getting an uber-liberal into the White House, and they’ll do just about anything to facilitate it. One thing they won’t do, though, is suffer snubs and insults to their imperial station. Nope, nope, that’s going too far. Doesn’t he know who they are? Methinks Obama will pay for this.
Not all at once, of course. Most of the press will jockey to be Obama’s favorite and become even bigger suck ups than they already are. But when dealing with big egos and skin as thin as Obama’s, there’s just not enough slobber on the planet.
I only pray this ticks off enough press to sit back and say “Hey, wait a minute. That could be us!” and get over their obsession with him.
That’s one scary airplane. Barf!
Yeah, those $5 donations made it so that Obama and his staff butts wouldn’t have to touch anything but leather.
And just how much fuel does Barry waste with that plane? Who pays for it? Is it a full flight to justify the fuel useage? Enquiring minds need to know.
It needs to be reworded to : Change that we can make believe in.
The Obama camp said there was not enough room on the aircraft......
If B.O. gets elected there won’t be enough room for a lot of us!...
Typical Obama. Stand in front of a teleprompter and add in a hip little "brush off" to keep the sheeple mesmerized.
Then he runs his over-sensitive butt to his media cohorts and whines about being "attacked".
I'm guessing he threw Ryan Lizza under the 757 because there was no room left under the bus...
It’s owned by International Lease Finance Corp., L.A., Calif.
