NR’s folly?

If you haven’t seen it yet, this is the latest cover of National Review:

Good conservatives can differ over the issue of immigration reform, and it’s healthy for outlets to present diverse — and strong — opinions on the subject. But this seems a bit much.

I haven’t read the column yet, but judging from the picture and the headline, it’s unfortunate the august National Review chose it for their cover story. Keep in mind, this isn’t a headline on a website, but the cover story for what is ostensibly the most important conservative magazine in America.

“Sarah Palin’s rack” was already taken?

In related news, BuzzFeed has made a big deal out of the fact that Grover Norquist was photoshopped out of the picture.

I think a bigger question is, why wasn’t conservative Sen. Jeff Flake — who was standing to Rubio’s right — also included? Might the editors have concluded that it’s more hurtful to Rubio to show him pictured next to only Sens. Schumer and McCain?
