New Yorker cover spotlights McCain’s houses, foreclosure crisis. The cover of the new issue of the New Yorker spotlights Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) multiple houses, contrasting his wealth with the foreclosure crisis many Americans are struggling with.
ThinkProgress spoke with New Yorker spokeswoman Alexa Cassanos, who said that the McCain cover is in no way intended to be a response to the controversy over the satirical Obama cover in July.
LSB: AGHHH! I'm such a hypocrite! I hated the Obama's cover this summer because I thought it was racist; I should hate this one because it speaks to McCain's elitism. But I don't hate it. Does this type of hypocrisy make me a Republican? ARGHHHH!
