Covering Barack: EW Does New Yorker Parody

stewart-colber-cover_l.jpgWe stopped wondering a while ago if this election could get any stranger — it can (though we’ve stopped guessing how), and if the last six weeks are any indication at all, it will, and probably before the end of the day. So it seems fitting that that New Yorker cover, which caused such an uproar, when was it…last July, is already being parodied by Entertainment Weekly.

The cover features Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Inside Stewart shares his thoughts on Sarah Palin:

I keep hearing that she’s “like us.” There’s this idea that people who hunt and have ”good” values are somehow this mythological American; I don’t know who “this” person is, I’ve never met them. She is no more typical “us” than I am, than Obama is, than McCain is, than Mr. T is. If there is something quintessentially or authentically American about her, I sort of feel like, you know what? You “good values people” have had the country for eight years, and done an unbelievably s—ty job. Let’s find some bad values people and give them a shot, maybe they’ll have a better take on it.
