Liberal Media Screams Hysterically About Depiction of President as The Joker

Oh, do they mean like this, as published in Vanity Fair just over one year ago?

Of course not. (That's Bush, in case his features are too demoniacal for you to recognize.)

It's only when their own precious gets made up like a clown that it's like a photoshop lynching.

Big Hollywood also notices that the LA Weekly, so upset by this Obama Joker image, published themselves pictures of Bush-as-Vampire.

But it's racist to do it to Obama.

Not just partisan politics as usual. No, racist and dangerous.

Yeah, it was dangerous to demonize Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Palin, too. There are plenty of insane liberals. Some of them are even violent. Like, you know those ex-convicts Democrats always want back on the voting rolls? Yeah. They're not voting GOP, by and large.

Nor are the hardcore Islamic jihadist types that Barry & Co. have been wooing. And I hear that once in a while such a hardcore Islamist jihadist type sometimes gets it into his head to commit a malfeasance or two.

But while there is always some danger in hard-nosed partisan politics -- always risk that some one thinks his path to becoming a Big Damn Hero lies through political assassination -- I seem to notice that the liberal media is rather more comfortable with those risks when it's a GOP in the cross-hairs.

"Snipers Wanted," Craig Kibourne said, and the media yawned.

But this?


So, sure, the left's relentless naming of Republican officials as fascists, criminals, and murderers might have elevated the risk that someone would kill them.

And sure, Democratic candidates' pandering to fantasies that Bush murdered 3000 people on 9/11 maybe might have put it in someone's head that such a crime must be avenged, and if not by the "fascist" politicized Department of Justice, then by one lone nut.

And the media collectively said, "We're willing to roll the dice on that. Kind of win-fucking-win, isn't it?"

So to the suddenly-alarmed media: fuck y'all and go die in a fire.
