Obama, *who isn’t actually any of these things.

Newsweek cover, Barack Obama

Is Obama the *president? Because being Muslim (so much questioned it is almost a fact) and President would be a bizarre actuality for the people to live with.

Are there any more adjectives they could possibly add to make a muck about? Because after a while they each seem to cancel each other out, or amplify. Or just generally confuse.

And quite possibly sloppy copyediting? No, not accidental genius, but cheap trickery.

The news media sometimes work like the convoluted design/advertisement corporation that they are.
