A Cartoon that Crosses the Line

Rick Moran believes that Chris Muir’s cartoon, featuring Hillary Clinton in black face, crosses the line. What do you all think? Does this cartoon cross the line, or is it a joke and, as such, perhaps excusable?

Jane Hamsher’s use of a photo of Lieberman with blackface was not a joke, it was a smear. How should this be interpreted? Joke, smear, a little bit of both?

I have to say that I am not fond of cartoons like this either, but… it is Muir’s right and to start some sort of controversy over this seems excessive to me.

Added: on the other hand, this cartoon does most certainly cross the line of decency. Should Muir apologize? Perhaps so, but I am a bit weary of controversies over these matters. Before we know, websites are forced not to use his cartoons anymore, websites can’t anymore, etc. Bit of a stretch? Ten years ago, yes, these days I don’t know.
