Editorial Cartoonist Depicts Republicans As Child Rapists

Progressives, the vultures of tragedy, aren’t above exploiting it for a political purpose. (See the funeral of Paul Wellstone, Hurricane Katrina, 9/11, the Tucson shooting.) Cartoonist Pat Oliphant is no exception: his latest attention-seeking panel compares Republicans to child rapists.

Factually, the only two lawmakers have been making news with child abuse scandal headlines and they’re both Democrats: David Wu and Dale Kildee.

Remember this?

It’s slightly creepy, but not surprising, that Oliphant would exploit sexual abuse for a political smear, even more shameful that some newspapers ran it.

P.S. If you want to see a truly good cartoonist, check out Michael Ramirez. I ordered his book a few months ago and love it. It would make a great gift.
