“With a topic like Anthony Weiner, how can you find anything broad or funny that he hasn’t already personally breached?” says John Cuneo, the artist who painted next week’s cover. He continues: “Free association made me think of the Empire State Building, and then King Kong, the iconic image of him straddling it. And then Weiner sexting, his head tilted and looking a certain way—I just stumbled upon the image as I was sketching. But all I could think about while working on this piece was, ‘Will Weiner still be in the race by the time it runs?’”The New Yorker | Thanks, Tim
