Finally, a flag befitting the movement!
mymy said..."2 Days to Go!"
The real countdown would be only 1538 days until President Obama leaves office!
However, the wife will get her way, come Tuesday.
Very nice cartoon, Clay.
It does, however, put all of your detractors in a very odd position. How can they reflexively criticize you without defending the Democratic Party Chairman?
This is HILARIOUS, Clay!
Yeah, Ryan gave a good speech. The only thing it lacked was the truth.
This cartoon is not insulting. A fetus is no more a person than an egg is a chicken.
What IS insulting is a political/religious movement that would strip away the reproductive rights of the women in America. What IS insulting is extending the same rights to a zygote as you would to a living, breathing adult woman.
Groups across the country are currently pushing 'personhood' amendments that establish law based on the declaration that life is sacred from the moment of conception. If enacted, the laws would not only ban ALL abortions under almost every circumstance, but would also effectively outlaw the use of many forms of contraception, as well.
Thankfully, every time one of these initiatives actually made it on a ballot, voters have soundly rejected it. But not so among those writing the 2012 Republican Party Platform. Apparently, the GOP now fully embraces the 'personhood' movement.
Now, THAT is insulting.
Maybe Clay was drawing about the Republicans who believe that the Earth is only 6000 years old and that man coexisted with dinosaurs. Or perhaps this drawing represents the conservatives who dismiss the 99% of the scientific community that endorses the reality of climate change. Of course, it might reflect those within the GOP who still believe that the president was born in Kenya, or those who are convinced that he's secretly a Muslim. Then again, maybe this cartoon is about the jugheads who still think you can "pray away the gay" or the ones who see hurricanes and earthquakes as a product of society's moral decay.
My guess is that it represents all of these people, and more.
It doesn't say much about a political party's intellectual prowess when "What papers do you read" has become a 'gotcha question'.

Maybe he just hates bigotry.
