Anthony Weiner as Carlos Danger Graces the Cover of The New Yorker

John Cuneo Shows Him Straddling the Empire State Building, Phone in Hand

Published on .

The porny backing track in Liquid-Plumr's latest spot is beginning to seem, fairly or unfairly, like the soundtrack to Anthony Weiner's life. The unfortunately named politician and his even more unfortunate record with web is the butt of yet another media joke with this "New Yorker" cover.

John Cuneo's illustration of current mayoral candidate Weiner straddling the Empire State Building like a lascivious King Kong, all the while sexting or taking a pornographic selfie a la Carlos Danger, comprehensively captures the deafening buzz in New York City's political circles. Everything about the image can be interpreted as a comment or a pun, even the symbolically phallic tip of the building he holds in his hand.
