That was despicable. But then there was this update:

Quote:
It’s generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it. I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published. I understand why Ann thought an exception to the policy was warranted in this case, but I do not agree.
This subtle retraction explains far more about what is currently wrong with our media than most seem to realize. Further, i can never understand why underage children of politician parents can ever be considered as fair game, and to be portrayed as MONKEY'S too!!! The irony flew right over that moronic cartoonists head.
Thanks from Sabcat

I'm all for free speech and freedom of the press (if that is still a thing)

What gets me about this is that the odds are it will proven to be a double standard.
Thanks from Panther and coke

A question. Has anyone seen "Cruz Christmas Classics?"

Ol' Cruz used his children in a wise-ass campaign ad. And here's the full "offending" cartoon, if context and accuracy matter to the outraged.



Cruz put his children up as fair game by using them ... as props, just as the cartoonist noted.

No, i haven't seen it. Are you telling us that that cartoon up above was created by and approved by Cruz!? Now, i need more information and context please.

Edit: Never mind. I finally found the link in your post.

Okay. I saw it and it appears to be a underwhelming misfire intended to be cute to his base. It didn't impress me and i thought it was cheesy. Still, drawing his likely politically clueless children as monkeys is tasteless and tactless, regardless of Cruz's intent. The Left presents themselves as ethically and morally superior to the right. I don't see it being exercised here.

Attack Cruz all she wants for his cheesy commercial, but we have been well served in leaving underage kids of politicians alone, otherwise in not doing so then no underage child of a politician will be off limits when it comes to adult vindictiveness in the future.

Let's not get the cart before the horse. It would really be a good idea to leave one's children out of cheesy political ads.

And I can't see what's so especially wrong with monkeys. Would circus dogs have been better? "Polly wanna cracker" parrots?

The Left and the Right present themselves as ethically and morally superior to the other. And ISIS is better than everyone.

Politics 2015 disgusts me, and I mean globally as well as nationally.
Thanks from Sabcat

Refresh my memory, but hasn't it been done before, only to be met with bi-partisan condemnation?

He's black. I'm old enough to remember whites calling blacks nigras and "black apes."

Is there some racial connection between Hispanics and monkeys?
