    Your outrage is misplaced.

    Rall has a history of some pretty offensive stuff, some of which he was finally forced to admit after he was actually bounced from the WaPo and The Nation.

    But it was a typical Rall thing : "I was foolish not to realize my offensive depiction of the American electorate as disfigured people with mental disabilities would be misinterpreted by all you idiots out there", to paraphrase.

    Before you go too much further pleading his case, perhaps you should research his history.

    Rall was not censored at Daily Kos and if some people expressed their opinion they find his depiction of Obama racist and offensive, then that is free expression.

    Strange that a cartoonist who uses mockery as a device is so thin-skinned, but you could recognize that is his failing not ours.

    And for the record, I never call Rall a racist, but I can easily see why some people would come to that conclusion.
