THIS WAS THE NEW YORKER MAGAZINE COVER IF SHE WON

The New Yorker Magazine–the bible of the urban cognoscenti–anticipated Hillary Clinton would win.

She didn’t.

New Yorker Magazine readers shed tears.

Now the magazine is reviewing her new book, “What Happened.”

And in this orgy of “what might have been”, the magazine’s editors decided to reveal the cover they had ready and were entirely certain would be used for the very next issue after she won.

I must say I’m not sure I get it.

She’s supposed to be standing in the Oval Office, I think, gazing up at a full moon.

What’s that mean?

Is this a glass ceiling metaphor that I don’t understand?

Why the darkness, the gloom, the light of a blue moon?

Whatever.

This is what they were going to do.

But they didn’t.

Which is a good thing.

  1. That’s absolutely creepy. Not like when Ford became President and the Doonesbury comic strip had birds happily chirping in the trees. Is she waiting for a signal from her alien masters?
