"The New Yorker" cover, McCain, Obama and how they affect comedy...by Sybil Adelman Sage

This is an all-inclusive post addressing pretty much everything related to the 2008 race being discussed today with most agreeing "The New Yorker" had the right to create the controversial cover just as Obama was entitled to object to it, and McCain, after criticizing the cover, disclosed that he's learning how to use the Internet, which must be exciting for the Viagra websites, bringing us to the article in today's "New York Times" about comics finding it hard to make Obama jokes, a combination of political correctness and his being so polished but, thankfully, we have 188 more days of a president whose flaws are a gift to comedians though perhaps nobody else.
