Here's Obama responding reasonably to that New Yorker cover! He thinks it is unsuccessful as satire (whatevs!) but also says it's just a cartoon. And though he sort of calls the cover an "insult to Muslim-Americans" he really seems to be apologizing for his campaign's "omg Muslims are scary, good thing our guy's a stand-up Christian" routine. Look, we're sick to death of his campaign and his supporters (especially this week!) but the guy's off-the-cuff reasonableness still impresses us. Is that a sign that our standards have fallen? Compare Obama's cartoon routine to Jon Stewart's on last night's Daily Show, after the jump.
