An instant classic, it seems to me, the new New Yorker cover, posted below. It's by Barry Blitt. The bloggy right has been ecstatic all week, pointing out how strong supporters of Obama have lacerated him for his phoned-in debate last week. And I know a handful of conservative writers have taken Romney to task at times. But can you imagine the Weekly Standard running a cover about the Republican candidate in this fashion at this stage in the campaign? Or Glenn Reynolds or Jennifer Rubin ripping into a poor Romney performance in October of an election year?
