Here they are depicted as monkeys.
Tell me, if Obama’s daughters were, hypothetically, in his most famous campaign ad, the 30 minute ad he ran on most networks on the eve of the 2008 election, would they be “fair game” too?
Note, this is all entirely hypothetical, I’m sure.
But just check out Obama’s Most Famous, Costliest Ad from minute 19 to 20.
Probably one of the most watched ads of all time.
You know what I see there?
“Fair game,” according to the Washington Post. That’s what I see there.
Pulled Down, Now With This Bullshit Explanation: “I Didn’t Look At It.”
Right, right, right.
I know you looked at it — you seemed to have required her to write a defense of the cartoonin order to give it “context” and make it acceptable.
I am having a lot of trouble believing that a hot piece like this, so controversial the cartoonist had to pre-justify her own stupid doodle with a written explanation, gets past the editors without people taking a look-see.
I mean it’s a frickin’ cartoon. You know — a scribbling for babies and illiterates. Who doesn’t have the time to look at a doodle?
Anyway, it’s gone, and here’s some self-exculpating bullshit, which also seeks to exculpate the cartoonist.
Editor’s note from Fred Hiatt: It’s generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it. I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published. I understand why Ann thought an exception to the policy was warranted in this case, but I do not agree.
He seems to be saying there’s a good reason for Ann to think this was an “exception” — because Cruz’ kids were in a ad.
Okay, well Obama’s kids were also in an ad — would the liberal Fred Hiatt agree, or at least “understand,” why people might think that also serves as a “warranted” “exception” to justify an attack on his kids?
What a lucky man Ted is having such beautiful little girls and a stunning future FLOTUS. The Washington Compost…who cares?
Let’s see…. Carter’s daughter… off limits. Clinton’s daughter… off limits. Bush’s daughters, attacked. Obama’s children… off limits. Palin’s children, attacked. Cruz’s children, attacked.
I think I sense a trend…
