National Review Cover Portrays Obama As A Proctologist (POLL)

Barack Obama has been portrayed as a number of potentially offensive things in cartoons (a chimp, a fist-bumping terrorist) and National Review magazine has proven itself adept at sparking controversy with its cover images (Sonia Sotomayor depicted as an Asian). And so what do you get when you combine the two--that would be President Obama portrayed as a proctologist on the cover of the magazine's latest issue, finger raised in latex glove and all. The cover story has to do with health care, naturally. The magazine did go the extra mile in having Obama utter the immortal line issued before rectal exams far and wide, "just relax."

So, is this cover funny, or just another in a long line of tasteless cartoons? Vote below.
