So, this cartoon. It’s from a newish online comic strip, which has found an audience by being fervently right-wing. The art isn’t bad. OK, all well and good. Occasionally I see right-wing bloggers chuckling at a strip and I can usually see why.
But, y’know, that cartoon.
I gotta ask. Is the artist aware that the Dems are in fact blocking only a handful of nominees? Jeff Sutton got through, no problems. Deborah Cook just got through. Michael McConnell got through. Dennis Shedd got through. Timothy Tymkovich got through.
The claims that the Democrats are trying to block all of Bush’s nominees are just, well, lies. Do a little hunting and you can find a number of progressive groups bitching about the nominees who aren’t being blocked.
You wouldn’t know it from the cartoon, though.
