The liberal New Yorker tried its hand at satire this week. Michelle in combat fatigues, Barack dressed like bin Laden and a picture of same on the wall, as the stars and stripes burn in the Oval Office fireplace. The liberal part of the blogosphere is not laughing. Should we lighten up? I don’t know. I think the Obamas can take it. But then, with friends like these, who needs enemies?
try your hand at something – sich an etwas üben
combat fatigues – Kampfbekleidung
lighten up – es leicht nehmen
(be able to) take it – es verkraften
