Meet Tom Toles. Earlier this year, I awarded Clay Bennett the First Annual Phillipp "Fips" Rupprecht Prize for Collectivist Hate Cartoon Excellence.
Toles has now made a serious bid for that title. Witness the one below which ran in my own hometown paper, The Birmingham News, on Saturday, 7 August.
Other than referring Comrade Toles to the Bill Clinton 1999 Serbian Rules of Engagement (making cartoonists and other intellectual supporters of tyranny legitimate targets of war), I can only observe that this particular ballgame is not yet in the ninth inning. Were I him, I wouldn't be so certain about the goose egg he has assigned to that first column.
