Ever Wanted to Fisk a Cartoon?

Paul Conrad
Slate is running this Paul Conrad editorial cartoon today. Excuse me while I spend the next few minutes retching.

And thanks to reader Kevin Black for spotting this. . .this thing. Sorry, but even invective fails me here.

UPDATE: Yes, that is a W on the side of the plane. Sorry if it doesn’t show up very well, but I had to scale down the image.
