This week Brian and I discuss our latest cartoons on McDonald’s workers and race, as well as Michael Ramirez’ terrible cartoons on race, Weiner sexts (we don’t care), and Obama not wanting a Yemeni journalist to be out of prison and reporting on drone strikes. We also are wearing nice bright shirts!
Rick Perry signed sweeping abortion restrictions into law Thursday and Planned Parenthood announced the closure of three clinics in the state. Not satisfied with a ban after 20 weeks, one Texas lawmaker has already filed a bill that would outlaw them after 6 weeks. Handmaid’s Tale, here we come! Texas, you’re probably aware, has a conveyor belt of death for people convicted of capital offenses. Convicted, though not necessarily correctly convicted. Rick Perry executed Cameron Todd Willingham who was almost without a doubt innocent, then manipulated the investigation into his wrongful death. He’s a very pro-life fellow that way.
