This week’s New Yorker cover is one of the funniest ever! Barry Blitt’s cover illustration is titled “OctoRush,” in a combined reference to OctoMom Nadya Suleman and the If-I-don’t-get-my-way-I’m-going-to-threaten-a-complete-governmental-overthrow-or-at-least-the-overthrow-of-the-floundering-Republican-Party noisemaker Rush Limbaugh. Both characters are not-so-arguably media pawns…or are they playing the media? In any event, there isn’t much of substance beyond their entertaining veneers, and Blitt seems to be making a comment on that with his drawing. Frighteningly, the image of a bouncing baby, that had immediately entered my brain after seeing this cover, morphed into the video image of comedian Limbaugh bouncing like a Weeble gone wrong at the recent CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) convention (see video below starting at 0:25).
