Funny men Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert couldn’t pass up the opportunity to mock the controversial New Yorker July cover and recreated infamous poses on this week’s edition of Entertainment Weekly.While Stewart gets into U.S. Presidential candidate Barack Obama’s character wearing Muslim garb, Colbert strikes his best pose as Michelle Obama as she was portrayed in New Yorker’s cover illustration.

The satirists talks about the election nominees, even explaining vice president hopeful Sarah Palin’s sudden popularity.

Stewart tells the magazine, “Everyone likes new and shiny. We’re bored. What’s great about that is [Democratic VP candidate Joe] Biden is an absolutely eccentric character. That’s how powerful Palin’s story is – it has cast the first African-American presidential nominee, the oldest [non-incumbent] presidential nominee, and a really wild cork vice presidential candidate completely out of the picture. The press is 6-year-olds playing soccer; nobody has a position, it’s just ‘Where’s the ball? Where’s the ball? Sarah Palin has the ball!’ Because they can only cover one thing.”

“I keep hearing that she’s ‘like us.’ There this idea that people who hunt and have ‘good’ values are somehow this mythological American’ I don’t know who ‘this’ person is, I’ve never met them.”

“She is no more typical ‘us’ than I am, than Obama is, than McCain is, than Mr. T is. If there is something quintessentially or authentically American about her, I sort of feel like, you know what? You ‘good values people’ have had the country for eight years, and done an unbelievably s—-yjob. Let’s find some bad values people and give then a shot, maybe they’ll have a better take on it.”
