A minor quibble, the road the cartoonist *should* have them

them travelling should be the sharp turn to the right. The signs need to be reversed.

The rest of the site is a collection of CPAC, Conservative Republican, and Neanderthal musings. Not a safe source, even when they accidentally get the issue correct.

they all continued down the road, refusing the responsibility.

There was no turn left or right.

Accepting responsibility is not a liberal or conservative exclusive property.

Despite the finger pointing on both sides, both have plenty of blame to bear.

But the difference between myself and a Mexican worker is minor. The big difference is between the two kinds of money. The fight is handed down to us from above. We do the mashing down at their demand.

and you can easily find political cartoons and web sites showing bias toward or against either party. The one you linked to is, IMO, "fair and balanced" but there will still be some who's opinion will be guided by the source of the cartoon rather than what it says on its own.

Well, political cartoons are generally biased because

that's their main reason for being, to advocate for a policy or group or to ridicule a policy or group.

I can accept that.

As you noted, this one just stands out (to me anyway) because it isn't politically left or right and because I tend to blame most of the congresscritters regardless of "side" for most of the messes we have. So it supports my existing bias and so I like it.


You're right about opinion being guided by the source as much as the message. Some do it all the time, some sometimes, others rarely but no one never, IMO.

No one looks at anything without a bias, the best we can do is recognize our own bias and try to compensate for it.
