Man: We've all had embarrassing affairs we regret...
Elephant: Tell me about it!
If phone calls on a cell phone are proof of an affair, then I’m having an affair with MIchael Smerconish…
Harley, it’s almost charming the faith you have in your politicians. Cain was a hack from the get-go, trying to sell books, having no clue about how to run a country, and no real intention of being president. Admit that you got suckered and move on with your life.
Please do a little reading on NYT v. Sullivan before handing out the defamation suits.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Times_Co.v.Sullivan
“Rob is putting words into Cains mouth.”
Go to E-How and look up satire. Its what ALL editorial cartoonist do.
Those aren’t tats, they’re patches to shed addictions to stupidity, not working so far.
Its harlekinns defending the indefensible again. He did this with that Christian Right Wing Terrorist not too long ago as well (I’ve put up Reuters and Associated Press stories that said so) calling him a nut case while denying the facts. Its what he typically does: feign ignorance for his party.
Rob has the cons frothing at the mouth.I love it!
wow i didn’t know that elephants can get tatoos
Rob while I like the toon, and love the reactions to it, there is some suspension of reality that pushes this one a bit far. NO neocon has ever regretted anything they’ve done. They all shine with holy light and walk on water….just ask them.
America needs to remove the ‘obozo’ tattoo next election.
^Realizing I;m beating the dead horse, please note:Justice Black, the godfather of First Amendment absolutism, had some bold words of his own about freedom of the press: “The half-million-dollar verdict does give dramatic proof . . . that state libel laws threaten the very existence of an American press virile enough to publish unpopular views on public affairs and bold enough to criticize the conduct of public officials. The factual background of this case emphasizes the imminence and enormity of that threat.” Such threats contravened the very principle of a free press in a free society.
Stepping back, the Alabama-born justice then took a long look: “To punish the exercise of this right to discuss public affairs or to penalize it through libel judgments is to abridge or shut off discussion of the very kind most needed. This Nation, I suspect, can live in peace without libel suits based on public discussions of public affairs and public officials. But I doubt that a country can live in freedom where its people can be made to suffer physically or financially for criticizing their government, its actions, or its officials.”
Later decisions extended the protection to_pubic figures_, not just _government officials+, essentially celebs, people regularly in the news, etc.These women’s allegations, proven true or not, place the satire of this cartoon well within the law’s protection.
The horse is dead, Harley.
