Go, Look: Danish Parliament’s Speaker Decries Steve Bell Cartoon


Such is the power of the Danish Cartoons Controversy that they're the initial point of reference for a story on Parliamentary Speaker Pia Kjaersgaard being upset the above Steve Bell cartoon for comparing Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen to a Nazi and the Venstre Party to the Nazi Party.

The hook I imagine is pointing out that Kjaersgaard was much more supportive of uninhibited free speech when doing so or projecting the result benefited her side of the political spectrum, which I imagine is true.
