I love this latest cover of the British satyrical magazine Private Eye, mainly because it is so irreverent. Clearly it is untrue, and wouldn't possibly be dared by any American magazine, but it is so obviously untrue that I find it hilarious. The two Democratic candidates are neither rude nor stupid nor malicious. Either one would make a good President, and lord knows American needs a new one.
So why do I like this cover so much? I think it's just because it is funny because it can be. Sometimes the powerful need to be brought down to earth whoever they are.
