Planet Hillary: New York Times magazine cover looks an awful lot like the artwork from Man in the Moon

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appears on the cover of this Sunday’s New York Times magazine and the cover art has sparked attention. Titled “Planet Hillary,” the cover features a moon with Clinton’s face imposed on it.

Check out the cover art below:

Does it remind you of anything in particular? The New York Times says the artwork represents “Hillary Rodham Clinton’s influence on the various people within her political universe,” and the “immediate idea” that came to mind when drafting a cover was “Clinton’s face embedded on a planet.” But Glenn had a chance to see the cover this morning, and he couldn’t help but notice the similarities between the cover art and the artwork from Man in the Moon.

Check out the moon from Glenn’s Man in the Moon below:

“They have made her the face of the moon, and we’ve all seen our face, you know, people do faces on the moon, et cetera, et cetera. But our Man in the Moon poster and the Man in the Moon thing that we did is an iconic look, and it’s very different,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “You know, we didn’t want to create something that was the same of what everybody else had done… Now the New York Times is using that for Planet Hillary. And I’m telling you, it is a direct rip-off of the Man in the Moon. I mean it’s incredible. It’s absolutely incredible.”

While the color scheme is certainly different, the angle of the face in the moon is almost exactly the same. But, at the end of the day, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

“You know what, New York Times? You’re welcome,” Glenn concluded. “And when you have the balls to say that we’re actually influencing your art and thinking, we’ll take that as payment enough.”

    Hillary has not aged well. She is starting to resemble Janet Reno more every day.

    • Sam Fisher

      Maybe she should go Nancy Pelosi way. Replace 90% of her skin with plastic.

      • landofaahs

        I suspect lizard skin underneath both faces.

        • Sam Fisher

          I do not think their is any skin left with Nancy to many botox injections.

        Now, Now, Sam Fisher. Let’s not be catty and unkind to Miss Nancy.

    • Guy Pinestra

      I was thinking more like Karl Rove with stringy hair…

  • Sam Fisher

    I think this is a great representation of her inflated ego.

    Hilly, (the fat old lady who couldn’t tell the truth if her life depended on it) is an airhead. Good Pic.

    Glenn, you are pathetic to take credit when your artwork is unoriginal also. I can’t help but notice the similarities between yours and the 1902 French film, ‘A Trip to the Moon’.

    It’s the moon and it has a human face in it. But I guess since your picture puts the face at a different angle, it somehow makes it original. Looks like Glenn has something in his eye. lol

    • Opinari

      Hillary in the moon is similar to Glenn’s men in moon depiction not this 1902 film. It’s the similarities of looks, not of the subject “moon.”

      • The Blue Tail Gadfly

        Yeah, Glenn’s ‘Man in the Moon’ artwork was soooooo original that the New York Times HAD to have copied it from him.

    • Nathan Saylor

      I seem to remember Glenn saying that it was from this movie being featured in Hugo that inspired Man in the Moon.

      • The Blue Tail Gadfly

        That’s fine, my problem isn’t that Glenn based his artwork on that concept, it’s with Glenn presuming that anyone else who does is now copying him.

        “While the color scheme is certainly different, the angle of the face in the moon is almost exactly the same. But, at the end of the day, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” ~Glenn Beck

        The “almost exact angle” is what determines if they are imitating him and not the original?

        How about the fact that Glenn’s was of the moon, while the New York Times’ is a planet with a completely different concept?

          Your bleeding liberal heart has an insatiable desire for attention.

            Hi Bert30

            I thought you said you weren’t going to post to me anymore? I guess you don’t mean what you say nor say what you mean.

            Re: “Your bleeding liberal heart has an insatiable desire for attention.”

            What does that have to do with anything? That is your opinion which doesn’t amount to a hill of beans. Have you ever hear the idiom, ‘Opinions are like…’?

            BTW, thanks for quenching my desire for attention, I was getting real lonely until you showed up. Are you lonely too?

            Thank you for reminding me that I wasn’t going to post to you anymore! I remember saying that to you now. You are so insignificant that I totally forgot that it was you I said it to. I’ll try and remember this time. Bye loser.

            Hi Bert30,

            Would you like a glass of Sunny Delight and to talk about your problems?

            I don’t understand why you feel the need to be so confrontational and rude. I understand you can’t refute what I have written in this thread, but I get the feeling this is personal and has nothing to do with that.

            Penny for your thoughts?

    But you do know she looks like a bootie right? I think it’s perfect. But they are clueless as always.

    Let’em rip it Glenn. They still don’t know HOW to use it.

  • Mary

    It sent chills thru me. It made me think of how everything we do and say will be monitored. We are becoming a society from out of a Sci-Fi movie. Hillary has sold America out and is controlled by the Muslim Sisterhood, in my opinion.

        I came “this” close to saying Heranus, but I sure am glad I didn’t – aw crap! I did it… :(

    Her ego would not fit in any room I am aware of. Too bed we cannot give her to the Egyptian people for her trial.

    Would it not have been much more indicative of the Hellary woman if the photo depicted her in her true form…..a crazy old witch flying on her broomstick across the face of the moon…?….U bet it would of..

    This is not a very flattering image of Hillary…..I can’t imagine it’s making her happy.

  • Anonymous

    Glenn’s interpretation of the man in the moon is more attractive than Hillary’s continence on the sphere. Sad when an old man looks better than a 65 year old woman! Ugly is as Ugly does. Does this magazine “hate” Hillary? They surely did her no favor!

    I knew “ol’ cankles” put on some weight; but “planet Hillary “is a bit rude even for a die hard conservative such as myself…That’s just mean.

    I thought the New York Times liked Hilary.

      Mist be wrong thinking NYT liked Hillary. they could have portrayed her more flatteringly rather than old , fat, and beginning jowls.

    Looks like a form of Copyright infringement to me. But also a form of a compliment to you and your artist. But the Man on the Moon is far better looking than hitlary could ever be! Sorry Moonman!

  • Yendor Nella

    both are a rip-off of the old silent movie “Man in the moon” Where the face on the moon is hit with a rocket in the eye

  • glow

    fat, bald, red in te face, fake smile (are those dentures?) . . . Yup, that’s Hilary wishing she had the integrity of the man in the moon.

  • bucketnutz

    Putting Hillary’s face on the Planet Uranus is fitting

    As we see from the computer hacking that originates in slave states, the genius unleashed by liberty has become a target for those who cannot advance without stealing the knowledge and inventions developed by free people.

    … “Planet Hillary … looks an awful lot like the artwork from Man in the Moon” …

    … come on Glenn, Hillary always had a hard time of being presented as a ‘dish’. Time has not been kind to her, it started with her ‘cankles’ and then there was the ‘gravity incident(s)’ (god where is a sharp object when you need it) …

    … in short, making her into the moon took very little time (about 15 minutes and very little make-up) and from that distance … “sheee loooksss maaarrrrvelous” ….
