T V Jul 15-Obama anger over satirical cartoon

Jul 15 - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has failed to see the funny side of a magazine cartoon poking fun at smears directed at him.

The cover of this week's New Yorker magazine portrays the Illinois senator in a fez and robe bumping fists with wife Michelle, who sports an Afro, a rifle and military garb.

The Obama campaign, which has taken aggressive measures to knock down these perceptions, is not amused and says most readers would consider it tasteless and offensive.
