Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

This guy wins Pulitzer Prizes for his cartooning?

Mike Luckovich is the Atlanta paper’s editorial cartoonist. I’ve never really liked his stuff, regarding it as unsubtle and ideological, but, hey, that’s partly just the nature of the medium. This one, however, is beyond the pale for a cartoonist associated with a "major" daily. It appeared on the day news was published of the brutal torture and killing of the American GIs in Iraq.

Luckovich ought to be looking for another line or work, or perhaps another employer.

With ~16,000 votes tallied, readers "don’t like" the cartoon by a 89.5% to 10.5% margin.

I’m not saying that he is an Al Queda propagandist, I’m only asking if he were, what would be the difference?

Uh . . . well . . . it would seem that this cartoon is anti-violence (granted, it’s anti-violence on terrorists). If he were an Al-Queda propogandist, that would probably not be his intention . . . don’t ya think?
