Follow Up On Cohen Obama Cartoon

It looks to me like any controversy over David Cohen's odd and perhaps alarming choice of comparison strategies in the above political cartoon published Monday in the Asheville Citizen-Times may be relegated to comics boards, political blogs and local sites -- and not many if any of those. Cohen talks about his aims in the comments threads here. I just think it's a bad cartoon with unfortunate implications, and bad cartoons certainly happen. I'm still surprised the editor didn't pipe up, and I have a pretty low opinion on editors piping up.
