No, I am not saying Obama is an evildoer ... but some people are and it's starting to really tick me off.
It's happened before and it'll probably happen again. Someone misunderstood the meaning of one of my cartoons. My editor fielded several calls last Friday, September 11th, from pro-Obama readers complaining that my cartoon comparing Barack Obama to Osama bin Laden was unforgivable. The problem is, I agree with those readers. I was trying to make the same point in my cartoon. It makes me sick to my stomach when I hear the ugly, hateful lies that are being spread around about our current President. We should all be standing united behind the idea of universal health care. We should all be standing united against kids dropping out of school. But we are not. Instead, as we mark another anniversary of 9/11, the same people who were united against Osama and al-Qaida are now making Obama out to be some kind of evildoer.
My advice to those Obama supporters who didn't like my cartoon: direct your outrage toward the ones who are making Obama out to be evil. That's all I'm trying to do.
