Vanity Fair Spoofs The New Yorker Cover

By Jonathan Adams Jul 23, 2008

Vanity Fair is getting in on the satire action. Taking its cue from Condé Nast neighbor, The New Yorker, the magazine creates a spoof on the infamous Barry Blitt cartoon. Depicting John McCain with a walker and Cindy McCain with an armful of pill bottles, the Vanity Fair cover tries to draw parallels between its cover and the one satirizing the Obamas. Do you think it accomplishes the same goal? Is it funny? Are you as outraged? Tell us why or why not.
