This spiked Washington Post cartoon should be retitled, “Schlong in a Box” for SNL, 2016!

The Fake Outrage Machine is running at 110% on this one. Ted finds it soooooooo offensive and damaging to his kids that he’s amplifying it, copying it, and sending it around to his Base of Morons. “I’m sickened … I knew I’d be facing attacks from day one of my campaign, but I never expected anything like this…This is an emergency — all hands on deck.” His pain will be salved when they send him money to “help me fight back”….. that’s the definition of chutzpah (another Yiddish word for well-known Yiddish expert Donald Trump to misuse some day, only to redefine it when you call him on it.) Most of the news coverage I see on this story simplifies down to the cartoon’s artist Ann Telnaes crossing “the line” and “using” the children inappropriately…. first and foremost attacking and making fun of the kids to make adult Ted Cruz look like an opportunistic jerk. The social media explosion was immediate and the Washington Post’s editor killed it, agreeing that the old “children are off-limits” unwritten rule MUST be applied. Talk about your Political Correctness and Intentional Misinterpretation/Victim Syndrome…..jeesh… I’ve barely seen it mentioned that the clear intent of the cartoon was to tweek Cruz for using his kids like trained monkeys in the leaden video he put out a few days ago where he reads famous Christmas lyrics to his kids and wife in front of the fire…. the words are changed to all be anti-Demokrat/Obama in the fake Christmas Album parody ad, seen here, along with comments from respected media critics Marco Rubio and Donald Trump …. The cartoon is hardly an “attack” on Cruz’s kids…. and I’d be willing to bet that 97% of the Conservative Outrage is made up of people who don’t even know the backstory or the point of the drawing. Not that they would care, as they write their checks to Ted’s Crusade. I’m surprised no one has yet played the race card on this, imagining the anger that would have occurred had the Obama daughters been depicted as monkeys…. as if there is no difference between black and white people drawn as monkeys…. and as if President Obama and Michelle haven’t been subject to that and worse for 8+ years.  There is no equivalence.  The crosscurrents of hypocrisy here are breathtaking…..
