This editorial in The New Yorker endorsing Barack Obama is sure to sway the votes of anywhere from zero to four people. It would probably have been a smart business play to write the exact same article, but then after the concluding sentence (“That leader’s name is Barack Obama”) append “unfortunately, he supports the legalized murder of innocent unborn children, so you should vote for John McCain.” That would have attracted a lot of buzz and probably sold a few magazines. That’s business strategy you can believe in.
