P.S. Wow, I should make clear that I don’t endorse the sentiments included in the cartoon. My politics are pretty different from Kreider’s. The humor is crude, and it was unwise of me to point readers in this direction. I weighed deleting this post, but I thought that would be dishonest of me — I should take responsibility for having put it up in haste.
Briefly, my sense is that the cartoon was written from a pro-Obama perspective. The conceit is that the demands of the campaign will lead Obama to take steps many of his most ardent left-wing supporters will find worse than distasteful. Kreider’s mini-cartoons present a couple of absurdist scenarios, at least one of which really is obscene. I should have thought better of it.
