Again on the Obama-as-Joker Poster

A couple of points need to be made:
  • I do not believe it's a positive contribution to the dialogue of this country to use ad hominem attacks against our elected leaders - attack the argument, not the man
  • Unfortunately, many on both sides have taken to this line of attack rather than to one more substantive. So, don't expect people to sympathize with you because you're offended if your side engaged in similar and even more egregious attacks on his predecessor
  • Any argument against Obama can be called "racist"; every time someone uses that word it becomes less and less powerful. I suggest you save it for times when the argument is actually "racist".
