The New Yorker's Sense of Humor

The recent New Yorker piece by Ryan Lizza about the development of Barack Obama's foreign policy includes this memorable line:

Obama had always read widely, and now he was determined to get a deeper education. He read popular books on foreign affairs by Fareed Zakaria and Thomas Friedman.

The magazine's cartoons never make me laugh, but that is hilarious.
