Rolling Stone Cartoon Gook-ifies McCain’s Opponents

Saw this on the AAA-Fund Blog… Check it out this ridiculously racist political cartoon from Rolling Stone. Offensive on so many levels. As much as I dislike John McCain, I don’t think it’s cool to make fun of his P.O.W. experience in Vietnam—that’s despite his professed hatred for “the gooks.”

But the cartoon goes even further to gook-ify the Obama, Bush and Clinton caricatures. I know it’s trying to comment on the vilification of McCain’s opponents, but was that really necessary? Thank you, Victor Juhasz. That’s racist! You can send your comments to Rolling Stone at letters@rollingstone.com or (212) 484-1616.
