I came across the first picture the other day at LCR's blog and I thought it was in poor taste...

Now, with that second picture it will be fun to see how things go now that the shoe is on the other foot...

...oh and they say that two wrongs never make a right...

Might not but it sure goes a long way in defining the concept of fair and balanced!

Thanks for the laugh!

I pretty much agree with Tao. I find both in poor taste. But together like this, they are not near as bad.

I doubt you'd see anything like these stereotypes, say, for a cartoon with McCain and/or Biden.
