  •  This is a little over the top (0+ / 0-)

    It is just a cartoon after all. Not even one of Tom's most trenchant. People who oppose tactical and strategic shifts by politicians aren't really interested in politics so much as they are interested in self righteous moralizing. Nevertheless, if they are voters, you want their vote.

    •  Yeah, it's only a cartoon, but to show Obama (0+ / 0-)

      saying "my position on gay marriage was preventing big donations" is pretty damned fickle at best, imho.
      Obama took a chance by taking a stance like that, right on the heels of the decisive N.Carolina vote to amend their constitution to ban gay marriage.  My guess is that he lost more money and votes than he gained.
      This may be humor, but it seems like spitting in the face of someone who just saved you from drowning.

      But then all progressive purists seem like ingrates to me, considering that Obama has been going toe to toe with Boehner and McConnell, et al., on a a daily fecking basis while the petulant purists stop sitting on their hands in their ivory towers only long enough to type out their disappointment.

      That's why this cartoon touched a nerve with me.  And also that I've taken issue with Tom's work before probably has something to do with it.

      But we're five months away from a very important election, one that literally means life or death to a lot of people, so why do we need this sort of "humor"?

      Do they poke fun at Romney on Fox?

      Sorry to go on, I'm rushing to get back to the baseball fields now; take care.

      Unfortunately, President Obama doesn't have time to read DK, so contact him here: The White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20500 (Postcards, not letters! Please give your email address.) -- 202-456-1111 -- FAX: 202-456-2461
