Kill him.Are the McCain-Palin people even aware that Tina Fey is making fun of them, all the time? Oh, wait … this is a magazine cover from 2004. Which still doesn’t make any sense. Why, in 2004, did the editors of this (obviously now defunct) magazine decide that the best illustration of the Kerry-Bush race was … a picture of a teevee comic who doesn’t portray either of them, and a guy who was soundly beaten for the GOP nomination four years earlier, in 2000? There is no answer, no “figuring it out.” Just enjoy the random strangeness of Tina Fey mocking McCain on a magazine newspaper-supplement cover four years ago. [Poynter Forums]

  1. I’ve heard that right after that cover was shot McCain offered Tina Fey the Vice Presidency if he won the nomination in 2008. Fey turned him down and McCain responded: “Why you little… I’ll show you. I’ll find someone just as good, or… heck, better!”

  2. Hey, there’s a blue screen in the background.
    They were probably never in the same room at the same time. Which explains why they are both smiling.

    The possibilities are endless.

  3. [re=143153]NoWireHangers[/re]: That’s what I was thinking. Looks like he’s got a little spare tire…so he really is just like Joe Sixpack/plumber/mortician/dead animal picker upper.

  4. Ahh! I never got my “I AM…THE…” signs e-mailed to me, but I was apparently added to the McCain/Palin e-mail blast list.

    I removed myself but told them I want my damn signs.

  5. [re=143161]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: For real, and wtf is this magazine about anyway? “Life” sounds like something straightforwardly gay, unless it is about the cereal or something, which rules.

    BTW, this cover of LIFE will be much funnier when McCain is DEAD.

  6. i like the little easter egg you planted in the img. how very ‘Parallax View’. you should be expecting a call from the secret service about… brrrrring!

  7. [re=143243]Red Headed StepChild[/re]: Amen. Tina Fey is damned sexy. You’d think that Palin would get hotness points just based on similarities, but every time I see her my man parts try to climb back inside me.

    That might have been too much information. Sorry.

  8. This is like that episode of Laugh-In where they did a “News from 20 Years in the Future” bit, mentioning President Ronald Reagan, which apparently was funny in 1968.
