The casual browser, given only this image, is left to conclude that #OccupyResoluteDesk is a strong, statesmanlike fellow, who has become to the Democrats the giant that Reagan is to the Republicans.
Mitt Romney, in contrast, is some tiny cartoon character whose identity is bound up in a church for which your feelings may vary from nothing to negative, unless you happen to be Mormon.
Barack is a three-dimensional, molon labe kinda guy, whereas Romney couldn’t be more two-dimensional and cartoonish without crossing the Biden horizon.
Given the results of Wednesdays debates, these covers seem to have taken the two character profiles and flipped them 180 degrees. When you’re on the Left, and you’ve got nothing, which is your normal state, this is what you do.
Except that it’s not working. #OccupyResoluteDesk phoned in his debate appearance, just like the rest of his wretched administration. This propaganda has no traction, because the audience
- Recognizes the inversion of the situation that these covers represent.
- Has lost all hesitation about pointing at these tawdry gambits and laughing.
While I don’t wish harm on any individuals, Newsweek and Time can just die in a fire, for all I care.
