I’ve been getting an interesting response from editors to my cartoon that features Sarah Palin’s pregnant daughter. Conservative editors write to me in disgust, saying that I was "over the line" by drawing the girl; liberal editors are writing to me to say "right on!" and "finally! Great cartoon!"
I can’t remember getting a response like this from editors before, so I thought I would post the cartoon here for comment. Click here to comment on the cartoon.
Of-course, the cartoon isn’t about the daughter, it is about the Palin’s opposition to birth control and sex education in schools, and her "abstinence only" stance. Social conservatives like to make the point that "abstinence" as birth control "always works," but realists can see that "abstinence-only" sex education works only as well as it did with Palin’s daughter.
