I know this is the internet but counter arguments to cartoons?!?! Seriously?

Might be time for some introspection. Perhaps Yoga and  some essential oils?


Political cartoons have a rich history of commentary and contribution into the market place of ideas.  Why should they be dismissed as not worthy of thought and conversation.  I am guessing you probably get that, thus your need to characterize me as typing red faced mad and needing to calm down so as to distract from your silly point that if commentary comes with art connected it is not worthy of discussion.  Some people just enjoy reading and joining in on the threads here on MJ.

I don't think you're wound too tight. I generally think you are a thoughtful well reasoned conservative. Cartoons get some room to make their point with a little stretch that is fine.  This one however was just a cartoonist mailing it in.  The idea that Clinton was asked about the email server, gave an answer and the press moved on took stretch ridiculously far.  I am sure you can one that says that the press is too hard on poor Trump Jr. that the cartoonist put a slight bit of effort into.

fair enough... I just thought the reporter in the cartoon was Jake Tapper at CNN.  Kindof a junior Woodward and Bernstein with more foam...
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."
