Clever New Yorker cover

March 8, 2012

While the New Yorker magazine, a mainstay of middlebrow culture, has certainly seen its ups and downs in recent years, its cartoons remain a strength.  The Bob Staake cover of this week’s New Yorker is clever and funny on multiple levels, although it requires a certain awareness of how the US Republican primaries have been covered in the US to appreciate (in particular, details about the unusual way that Mitt Romney took his pet with him on a trip to Canada.)
