Barack Obama first Gay president, first jewish president, not the first cover idea done like this.

Badland: 

Newsweek is getting a lot of press for the cover "The first gay president", illustrated by Obama wearing a rainbow (neon?) halo above his head. He is getting this title for his "bullshit gay marriage announcement" as Gawker put it. As I recall in September last year Barack Obama was the first Jewish president, as depicted on the cover on New York Magazine, so I'm only here to point out the Badlander-like issue. If I see Barack Obama as the first woman president on a magazine cover near you soon, I'll personally slap the creative who designed that cover with a wet trout. I bet Obama will be wearing lipstick too. Shoot, we did that to him already. .......And he was depicted as a rainbow Lincoln-Obama before too. My god, 2012 is like the worlds longest rerun.
