Obama laughs at Romney vs. Gingrich Super Bowl in the New Yorker

(New Yorker)

Blitt’s first famous Obama cover was the controversial image of the president and his wife dressed as a Muslim and a revolutionary, respectively, and doing the “terrorist fist jab.” Blitt also designed a cover of Obama walking on, and then falling into water. Obama reportedly asked for a signed copy of Blitt’s work.

Blitt’s not the first parodist to turn a chuckling Obama on to the GOP primaries. A viral image of a laughing Obama made the rounds after the South Carolina primary.
