A Verbal Discription Of My Editorial Cartoon On The Hamsher Matter

I can't draw, so I'll just describe it.

A man stands blackened with soot and ash, a bit like blackface, but in fact it's the Bugs Bunny-like aftereffects of a cartoon explosion. The words "NED LAMONT" are printed on his chest.

He's holding a scorched gift box, which has apparently just exploded after being opened. The gift box is labled with the words "NUTROOTS ACTIVISM." Kind of like a mail-bomb that has just exploded in his face, but again cartoonishly.

A little tag dangles off the exploded gift-box, reading, "From Jane, With Love."

In the bottom corner is one of those tiny little post-script cartoons that I think the Moron Tom Toles does, with a duck-faced guy saying something "Where can I get some pooter?" and a picture of the cartoonist at a drawing desk saying, "If I knew that, I wouldn't have grown up to be an editorial cartoonist."

(No offense to Chris Muir or Cox & Forkum, who I'm sure get plenty busy -- like Viking-busy. Honestly, just couldn't think of anything else to say in the Toles-esque postscript doodle. So I went for the easy "pooter" joke.)

Thank you.

PS: This gag -- describing an editorial "cartoon" with words -- was one of the first gags I thought of for this site. Something I've meant to get around to for more than two years.

Never did. Not sure why.

So, this is a two-plus year old joke, finally told.

More Homophobic Photoshops of Lieberman: No t posted by the scary-funny Ms. Hamsher, but linked directly by her, quite approvingly.

Layers.

To Recap: Jane Hamsher, unofficial Ned Lamont campaign staffer, posts blackface pictures on her site, and links homophobic photoshops on fellow Lamont-supporters' sites.

Daily Kos, unofficial Ned Lamont campaign consultant, features "Diarist" entries like "Imagine There's No Israel" and a great deal of anti-semitic commentary. And also comments containing homophobic p-shobs of Joe Lieberman.

Ah, well. These guys are skilled an canny political operatives. It's not as if gays, blacks, and Jews are important members of the Democratic coalition or anything.

Coming soon: Atrios slams unionized workers as "whining, squealing sissyboys."

Update: A genuine editorial cartoon that nicely sums up the "asymmetry" in the Israel-Hezbollah war.
