Visual Rhetoric in Election 2012

As a culture we are constantly bombarded with images that represent brands, ideologies, political affiliations, etc.  It is, therefore, overwhelmingly obvious that connections to visual rhetoric dominate our image-laden world.  And as the word ‘rhetoric’ seems to be (unfortunately and wrongly) synonymous with politics these days, it only seems appropriate to take a peek at the visual rhetorics of The New Yorker and the presidential candidates especially because of tonight’s debate.

The visual rhetoric site viz. presents various covers of The New Yorker and our presidential candidates.  Check out the covers and the messages they convey here. Where have you seen visual rhetorics in this election?
