How did McCain get dragged into this whole thing? He was actually defending Obama.
I'd like to highlight a point that nobody else seems to be making: It's really not an issue of whether the New Yorker was satirizing or disseminating Obama smears. It's that satire is a whole lot easier to recognize when it's funny.
By the way, in case you were confused, that Horsey cartoon above is satire. Trust me, it is.
