Professional voice of reason Mr. Yael T. Abouhalkah of The Kansas City Star calls for a transfer of cranial heat and the prevailing of cooler, sexier heads with regard to an offensive New Yorker cover. I was all, like, “The New Yorker? What, did John Updike write another precious New England elegy to extramarital blowjobs?”

What do I know? What with my subscriptions to Cat Fancy and Dr. Norman Vincent Peale’s Guideposts, I don’t have time for The New Yorker. But a coworker explained that the magazine printed a watery, boring cartoon depicting Barack Obama nailing Jesus Christ to a crucifix made out of your puppy, or some damn thing. I should point out that in a display of bipartisan overreaction, even the McCain campaign denounced it. Everyone’s upset. Over a cartoon. Seriously, you guys, I always hated fucking Animaniacs, but I’m not going to heave any bricks through windows. Although, just typing the word Animaniacs started that nightmarish theme song playing in my head.
