This extraordinarily offensive political cartoon by Mike Lester is making the rounds today. In the cartoon, President Obama, dressed as a pimp, says of Sandra Fluke, “She just wants to have recreational sex and you to pay for it. It’s not exactly a new concept.”
Best commentary of the day comes from Angry Black Lady:
You’ve got the African-American President is a 70′s pimp angle, the Sandra Fluke is a whore angle, the “evil light-skinned brother” angle, the white girl subservient to the black man angle, a complete misrepresentation of Ms. Fluke’s statements to boot and it’s all rolled up into one big insulting awful package of pure hatred for black people, women, and human beings with working souls. It’s actually impressive, in the same way ebola-tipped bullets fired into crowds of baby sloths is impressive: just overwhelmingly, unremittingly awful on multiple levels.
though that commentary is pretty spectacular.
