The Week in Editorial Cartoons – The Cheney/Halliburton Connection

THE WEEK IN EDITORIAL CARTOONS

This weekly diary takes a look at the past week’s important news stories from the perspective of our leading editorial cartoonists (including a few foreign ones) with analysis and commentary added in by me.

When evaluating a cartoon, ask yourself these questions:

1. Does a cartoon add to my existing knowledge base and help crystallize my thinking about the issue depicted?

2. Does the cartoonist have any obvious biases that distort reality?

3. Is the cartoonist reflecting prevailing public opinion or trying to shape it?

The answers will help determine the effectiveness of the cartoonist’s message.

Confusing CBS/NYT ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Poll

Crossposted at Daily Kos

Do words confuse you at times?  If you’re presented with two words having literally the same meaning, do you react differently to each?  If you answered ‘yes,’ you wouldn’t be alone.

According to a new CBS News/ New York Times Poll, the future of the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy of prohibiting open military service by gays and lesbians may well rest on the choice of a couple of words, with one preferred over the other.

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is good because why?

I wrote this months ago on my blog but since DADT is still being implemented I figured I’d post here.

Some retired military people decided to write an article for the Washington Post saying that they don’t want to serve with gays.

In doing so, they came up with perhaps the most. Freudian. title. EVER. Seriously. They should’ve just titled it, “Dudes, stay the fuck away from my ass!” But I guess that might appear to be homophobic or something. Wouldn’t want that.
