Jesse: 1, Barack: -2

Remember how Sen. Obama thought he was going to be portrayed at a fundraiser (H/t: Gateway Pundit):

Sen. Barack Obama: "We know what kind of campaign they are going to run. They're going to try to make you afraid. They're going to try to make you afraid of me. He's young. He's inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And, did I mention he's black."
Keep that in mind, now.

Then comes Rev. Jesse Jackson and what he said he wanted to do:

And now we get to see how Sen. Obama responds to something that is relatively mild as these things go:

And the Obama Campaign's response? From The Swamp:
The Obama campaign, as well as the campaign of Republican rival John McCain, slammed the cover as offensive:

"The New Yorker may think, as one of their staff explained to us, that their cover is a satirical lampoon of the caricature Sen. Obama's right-wing critics have tried to create," Obama spokesman Bill Burton said in a statement, reported by Politico. "But most readers will see it as tasteless and offensive. And we agree."
Notice how the 'satirical cartoon' plays on Sen. Obama being young, inexperienced, having a funny name and being black?

Yes, it looks like Jesse bagged a pair as the response is very thin skinned compared to what others go through in public life.

A note to Sen. Obama: If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Or be seen as taking tutoring.
