Do you think Time magazine exercised bad taste by this cover? Would you say this is a low blow?


After all the Republican party symbol is the elephant. However ask yourself this, would Time put a picture of a prominent Democrat, say Obama on the cover with the title "The Jackass in the room"? (re: the Democrat Donkey) hmmmmmmmmmm For the benefit of low information voters (if you looked at the pic and thought "who is that," I mean YOU) this is a profile of Republican Chris Christy who just won re-election as Governor of NJ.

    At first I tended to agree but when I thought about it how does Christy represent an obvious truth that is being ignored or going unaddressed which is what the idiom means? Do you think if Christy wasn't obese Time would have chosen this cover? Why?

    Chastising? I didn't mean to chastise you. Well, junkseller if low information voters could be cured by fixing a typo America would be much better off. So you think if Christie wasn't obese Time would have featured the 2016 election as the elephant?

    The trouble with that is the managing editor had to have approved it so how can she fire the person who thought it up - I do think it was clever but putting it on his silhouette which definitely emphasizes his obesity was a little much.
