Newsweek’s current Palin cover vs. Newsweek’s future Obama cover

by editor on November 30, 2009

palin-newsweek cover sarah palin The latest Newsweek’s cover features a photo of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in her running outfit. This image was apparently “liberated” from a Runner’s World photo shoot.

The photo is accompanied by a headline that screams, “How Do You Solve A Problem Like Sarah? She’s bad news for the GOP – and for everybody else too.”

The cover story continues, “The Alaska Republican also doesn’t hold back in her book, writing at one point, “I had been out of journalism for a long time, and it was pretty obvious the rules had changed. I felt sick about the depths to which some in the press had apparently sunk, not because it was unfair to me and John, but because it was unfair to the American electorate.”

newsweek-obama-cover As if to prove that Palin was correct, Newsweek editor Jon Meacham defends the image the magazine chose for its cover. “We chose the most interesting image available to us to illustrate the theme of the cover, which is what we always try to do,” he told CNN. “We apply the same test to photographs of any public figure, male or female: does the image convey what we are saying? That is a gender-neutral standard.”

It’s clear what they’re trying to say about Palin. And just to make it equally clear what they’re trying to say about President Obama, we’ve taken the liberty of developing this cover design to be used with Newsweek’s next Obama cover story.

There is no law over draping the flag nor leaning on it, interestingly enough for what I know there is no law against burning it either.
However burning the flag is far more disgusting than draping and leaning on it. If anything it shows that she leans on the ideals and represenations of this country.
It is disrespectful to some to wear the flag on one’s body or to have the flag drag on the floor both things that for what I can see are not happening on this photo.

This photo was taken (or stolen or bought who knows) from a Runner’s magazine. I find it incredible that people actually thought instantly that she had posed for Newsweek like this. Even if I didnt know that it was from another magazine it is quite obvious.

I’ve got a young $50 bill that says Sarah can beat the crap out of Obummer in Basketball, Arm Wrestling and a spelling bee. If it wasn’t for the media’s lips being Super-glued to the ass of the Obamasiah, it would be Sarah in the White House with John McCain. The Obamunists owe everything to the media because they sure fell down on their job–which is why no one buys their hard copy newspapers and magazines–why spend money for lies?

Oh My God, leaning on the American Flag? Guess what? Obama’s pals were burning it. Now that’s what I have a problem with. Ya Liberal Moron……………

The only problem I have with the picture, and those who don’t seem to notice, is Palin’s disdain for the American Flag. She not only has it ‘draped’ over the chair, but she’s ‘leaning’ on it.

More ignorance from Palin and her followers……

I think the Obama cover is the one he was hoping they would publish. No doubt he thinks of himself like that.

I think the second cover may be a parody. The halo isn’t big enough or prominent enough for it to be a real Newsweek Obama cover.

There is no middle ground when it comes to Palin. Either you love her or you want jab FORKS into your eyes at the mention of her.

Worry not about our girl Sarah being tarnished by the pseudo news media. She’s tough enough to eat a bicycle.

I want to know when this rag, or any other publication is going to ask us on the cover how we solve a problem like Barrak or Barry or wahtever his
name is.

If you don’t see the bias in this coverage, you are an idiot.
