Business Insider questioned in a post yesterday whether a cover illustration of the latest issue of the New Yorker (science fiction edition) contains a subliminal message about Mitt Romney who may or may not be depicted as a spaceman:
Is it a coincidence, or is artist Daniel Clowes trying to say something about whether Romney is "one of us" or not?
Good question. It's true the spaceman in the picture has "perfect hair" and a "square jaw," as noted by Business Insider. But there are three reasons this can't possibly be Romney.
2. This spaceman is a little too comfortable wielding his raygun around, as if he's been a lifetime NRA member; It was only fairly recently that Romney says he purchased two shotguns.
3. The spaceman's wetsuit (or spacesuit) is fully zipped; it's a well-known fact that Romney prefers wearing his wetsuits halfway pulled down in order to bare his chest.
