When the New Yorker published this cover it is safe to ask "what were they thinking?" I mean can it be more obvious that some have grave concerns over the Obama's. Their name, their religion, their patriotism just keep coming up. Even his wife's comments about "being proud to be an American for the first time in her life" has created questions about their patriotism. Arguably it may not have created questions for some Americans but for many others there seems to be a rift... most notably along racial lines. Perhaps a poll should be taken of Black Americans about their ideas of names, religion, and patriotism or maybe not. I have my ideas about what it might prove!
