01 Feb 2006 Washington Post: Making Fun of Wounded Soldiers
Allow me to echo Michelle Malkin’s sentiments, as well as those of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, about the tasteless Washington Post cartoon making fun of grievously wounded soldiers.
Michelle’s site has the cartoon, her commentary and the letter sent to the Washington Post by the Joint Chiefs here.
Addendum, 2/1/06: A reader sees the cartoon differently:
Amy,The cartoon isn’t making fun of wounded soldiers. It’s very clearly pointing out how disgusting it is that the military neglects soldiers once they’re damaged goods.
To me it seems that the Post cartoon is criticizing the Administration’s Iraq war policy, but I’m posting Mr. McDonald’s point of view in case I’m not seeing something that is obvious to others.
