That's a surprising "profanity" edit by the mgmt. In light of the utter and total profanity that goes on everywhere on TOPIX. It's abritrary,capricious and whimsical.

We can stop smearing him; nobody is going to choose to vote for a radical anti-American ex-terrorist over a decorated war hero who's troop surge that he has advocated is bringing us a slew of American victories in Iraq. Well, some people might vote for him, but in general most Americans dont want to see a Marxist takeover of their country. One things for sure, though: my gun store has never seen better sales than since Obama beat out Hillary! Thanks, Barak!

You're about 10% too high.
Depressing thoughts .....

1 in 4 approve of the job Bush has done as
President.

1 in 10 approve of the job Congress has done.

90% of incumbent members of Congress up for
re-election will be rehired by their constituents.

Hang in there Bill:
Those disgruntled ones may just surprise even you by demanding that the ones we "brung to the dance"
start doing their jobs and quit blaming our President for all the incompetancy...turns out they know that they are the guilty dogs anyway.
A "Do-Nothing Congress" deserves most of the blame.
Let's Makem' Do Their Jobs. And stop all this "Hate America First Business".

Actually, total gridlock, and doing nothing at all is probably the best situation we could hope for.

Remarkable wisdom,for a guy your age! Relax. God really is in charge. It takes all your patience,but sometimes you have to let go and let divine providence do its work.
This reall still is AMERICA!

The New Yorker actually believes Obama is a terrorist and muslum, but they couldn't say it , so the depiction is in a picture , because comedy can say what ever it wants without getting in trouble.Many democrats are starting to realize he is a danger to our democracy.

What the NYer did is called "satire"...ie exagerated humor. Look it up. It's actually humor that is very common in politics. It's considered "fair" even tho it's exagerated.
Don't think for a moment that the Obama gang is'nt planning something on McCain...those Democrats wrote the satire book.

Follow up: It really could end up with us picking who we think is least dangerous to our democracy... the proverbial "lesser of two evils."

The truth hurts but it is the truth about Obama.
From what I have seen and heard the cover looks more like a photograph gone bad than a drawing. I just wander why his Muslim family was left out of the cover. I mean if we are going to depict something let's get it right all at one time.
If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and Sh-t's like a duck....you guessed it, it's a duck.
Or maybe after the change it go from an ugly duckling to a swan.
And another thing, is this change he keeps talking about, is it something like menopause? From my experience I haven't seen many women or their husband's for that matter go through the "change" without some kind of drugs. Looks as if he may really trying to get back to his past. Boy that menopause creates problems for everyone around!!!!
