Acceptable satire?

Cartoonist Barry Blitt has the front page of the New Yorker magazine, his cartoon is being described as satire but the images of Obama dressed as a Muslim, his wife Michelle as a terrorist and the symbolic placing of the US flag on the fire and Osama bin Laden's prortrait above that fire is a very power attack on the Democratic nominee. But is it acceptable? Obama says it has gone too far! Would Private Eye show a similar image? Is anything fair game for the satirist or is there a line that should be drawn? Interesting questions huh?
