There’s the “Obama-muslim?” stereotype, a front-and-center “terrorist fist jab“…even a framed picture of Osama bin Laden in the background.

The Huffington Post’s Rachel Sklar talked to editor David Remnick about the cover, and he summed up the meaning: “The fact is, it’s not a satire about Obama — it’s a satire about the distortions and misconceptions and prejudices about Obama.” Oh, we get it.
