AS GLENN REYNOLDS WOULD SAY

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: Jonah Goldberg has some thoughts about the cartoon, as well as the horrific photograph it was based on.

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.
