Offensive or Tongue-in-Cheek?

The July 21 cover of the New Yorker magazine is causing quite a stir!!  Both the Obama and the McCain campaign agree that the picture is offensive!!  The New Yorker magazine defends its decision and says the illustration is satire.

Obama is wearing a tunic and a turban.  Michelle is wearing army clothes, has an AK-47 and an afro, and the American flag is burning in their fire place.  I think that's a picture of Osama bin Laden also above the mantle and ofcourse they're doing their famous "bump."

Offensive or just tongue-in-cheek?  What do you think?
