True... 'tis and American thing. The "chick" is Texas Senator and right wing tea party hero, Ted Cruz. The "baby" is John Boehner, Speaker of the House of Representatives.

I thought it was Robin Williams. Ah yes Boehner, I recognise him (now).
Time and Newsweek are strange beasts. I can't think of any equivalent in the UK (yet the French have Paris Match, and the Germans have Stern).
There was a short-lived equivalent in the UK, titled 'NOW!'. Which used to be remorsely parodied by the satirical magazine Private Eye, as 'Talbot'*. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NOW!_(1979–81_magazine)
* Probably some 60s private-school in-joke that I've yet to fathom. ... 'Talbot' is a Victorian reference to a hunting dog, specifically a Retriever Spaniel ... that I do know... anyway, I digress ... hehehe...
