Bush Derangement Syndrome claims another victim: You know editorial cartoonist Pat Oliphant is a liberal -- that's not news. But Oliphant has joined the loony left with his Tuesday cartoon in which doctors give Bush a face transplant. Want to take a wild guess whose face he gets? If you guessed Hitler's, you're right!
These Bush=Hitler comparisons that are all the rage on the left-wing hate sites are really offensive. They trivialize Hitler's mass murder of Jews, the disabled, homosexuals, gypsies and everyone else who didn't fit into his "master race" agenda.
Of course, these haters love to be offensive. It is some badge of honor for the small-minded -- imagine 8-year-olds getting the giggles over the word "poop" -- same thing here.
What this sort of thing really does for the majority of the American people is that it makes it really easy to figure out who to ignore/oppose.
I'm honestly surprised to be adding Pat Oliphant to the list of loonies who have gone over the edge. A list on which the only notable name until now was Ted Rall. Congratulations, Pat. I can't tell you how much I hope that newspapers start dropping your cartoons like a hot potato.
