As Glenn would say, “Oh, that left-wing media.”
That’s vile stuff. I can’t believe the Los Angeles Times’ editors would approve such a cartoon. (I downloaded a copy, just in case the LA Times pulls it.)
UPDATE: Speaking of political cartoons, the Professor’s found a doozy.
UPDATE: Orrin Judd also has some thoughts on it. And be sure to read the comments as well.
My take? I think anytime a cartoonist draws someone about to get a .45 in the skull–particularly a politician–he’s violated some corollary of Godwin’s Law. Given the natural assumption that the majority of people have towards the direction of media bias, it’s an astonishingly stupid cartoon.
