@nimh,
Exactly my response. The one Obama pic has more "Blemishes " than does the PAlin shot.

Well, the funny thing is that Foxfyre cancelled her subscription to Newsweek based on this episode. That woman must have spider senses to the world. I wonser of she quit eating cornflakes because of the photos of a certain Olympic swim star who is shown to look something like a retard.

People of the right, please come up with something that doesnt make you look like a bunch of whining toadies

The picture of Obama made me think of this famous portrait of T. Monk...

Yup. Was a subscriber until just recently when I dropped it
in favor of US News & World Report.

Yes; historically, for many decades,
that has been less left-bent, and more objective--
more informative.

Oh good grief.

Not much to add to what littlek and nimh already said -- especially agree with how the Newsweek covers undercut rather than bolster Foxfyre's case. (And note that Fox News chose one Obama cover -- the gauzy backlit one -- to contrast with Palin, but ignored the other, more similar one. In fact, at this resolution, the Monk-ish one of Obama shows far more imperfections than the Palin one does.)

it is clear to me that Newsweek is trying to go for insights into the "real people" that are our candidates. The campaigns are slick Madison avenue creations, Newsweek is trying to peak behind the curtain. This is admirable.

One of them would be lying on the floor being kicked by the other 2 long before it got to this point.

Then they'd all go out for a beer.

An "experienced" woman VP was not good enough for Barack, but Biden was better than Hillary?

All the more reason to vote for Palin...

…end chauvinistic "good ol' boy" politics once and for all.

I don't get my "news" from newsweek magazine anyway.

Coming soon, to a Fox show near you...

"Some say that the recent NY Times article which quotes Palin verbatim, with all of the inconsistencies and incoherent juxtapositions of sentence elements which any person sometimes makes in speech, is deeply unfair to Palin and demonstrates the ongoing media bias against her."

First, just for fun, count how many times in ANY Hannity or other Fox commentary, a proposition is introduced with "Some say".

The charge of "media bias" is one of the two main staples of Fox and rightwing radio (the other being "liberalism is unamerican and will destroy the nation"). It's a staple not merely because it has propaganda value but, more pointedly, because it provides the basic rationale for the existence of Fox and rightwing radio.

@PDiddie,
Its reprehensible to compare a libertarian to a nazi.

Were the nazis great lovers of freedom and individualism ?

Certainly. But where was a libertarian mentioned?

I got a look at the Newsweek cover this afternoon. They stopped just short of painting a mustache on her or painting her in a tree eating bananas.
