Michele Bachmann is on the New Yorker's cover [IMAGE]

President Obama has had fun at Michele Bachmann's expense in the past. On the cover of this week's New Yorker, illustrator Barry Blitt depicts Barack doing it once again.

The occasion this time is the announcement that 7.1 million people signed up for Obamacare before the end of March, a number surpassing the Obama administration's original seven million person goal.

So while the president takes a figurative political victory lap, Blitt drew him literally giving Republicans their medicine: Political symbolism aside, Blitt characterizes his cover as "just an elaborate excuse."

"I enjoyed drawing Ted Cruz, John Boehner, and Michele Bachmann as petulant children -- and I especially wanted to draw an open-mouthed Mitch McConnell being spoon-fed his meds," Blitt tells the New Yorker.

Well, Bachmann's latest appearance on the cover of a major national magazine is at least more flattering for her than that infamous Newsweek "Queen of Rage" one, right?

We contacted Bachmann's spokesman seeking comment on the New Yorker cover but haven't heard back as this is published.

If you believe those numbers I have some medicated Kool aid to sell you.

And yet she's smarter and definitely more honest than Obama and Hilary--"if you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan"

And he's lied about everything else concerning obamacare, yet we are supposed to believe these numbers ? Freakin idiots.......

1) the 7 million is inflated, and include convicts and felons IN PRISON 2) how many people LOST the insurenece they had been told they could keep if they liked it? a couple million if not more 3) Do some research, and you'll find that that 7 million estimate is inflated by more than just convicts--some of it is just plain fiddling the math

Looks like the typical uninformed obama voter eagerly waiting the kool aid.

Not like Republicans will nominate someone better.  They are a party of insane stupid bigots in the pocket of the Koch brothers.

@nimodahooligan  Awwww the butthurt Republican is whining about science and the numbers again.   You ever read about the boy who cried wolf?   Republicans have been lying about Obamacare since the beginning.  Your credibility is in tatters.  People are figuring out what Obamacare is and they like it.  Sure stupid Fox News viewers like you will go down with the ship but the average person knows the truth.  Obamacare is a success.  Republicans have been lying and trying to sabotage it since the start.  They will pay the price for that.   You are too stupid to know when you lost.

Wow - you're parroting Rush Limbaugh on that one - almost word for word. What a surprise!

Don't forget they just change the way deportation and unemployment stats are calculated to suit their needs.

Are you insane? People in prisons are not signed up for ObamaCare. Where do you do your research? Through Limbaigh, Beck and Faux News? You are either totally insane or lying out your ass and I'm guessing quite a bit of both.

When you claim someone is lying, you need to produce evidence.  Otherwise you're just another "Tin Foil Hat".

"...waiting the kool aid." WTF does that even mean?

@ChazDanger  That's the entire problem. The WH is not breaking those numbers down. Like Will said, how many enrolled in the ACA because they lost their previous health care due to the ACA? How many of those who signed up are getting it 100% subsidized ?(Remember, we were told it's not a tax). How many people who enrolled are actually paying (or will be able to pay) their premiums and deductibles?


Obviously, until the public knows the true numbers, it's kind of hard to declare it a success or a failure.

Like an idiot, you focus on the wrong things. Try focusing on better and more affordable.

@Drewey  See, that's the problem that some of us have. The words "good enough" and "forced". If my car isn't "good enough", does government have a right to "force" me to buy a car that is "good enough" deemed by them?

Drewey topcommenter

You lost your health insurance because it wasn't good enough under the new law. So now, you are forced to get a better more affordable plan.

@MNjoe

You said "most Americans already know it's a big step in the right direction". Can you please cite (see, I spelled it right this time) any links that prove that? Again, without providing any evidence, you're just another "Tin Foil Hat".

@Throbbing.Pussy. @ChazDanger  Hard for you maybe - most Americans already know it's a big step in the right direction - toward single payer.

@ChazDanger  I am glad, however that the law banned the pre-existing condition clause. But that should have been law 50 years ago.
