When Rush Limbaugh's prescription drug list became public, it turned out there was one in there for what the TV ads euphemistically call an ED medication. This led me, naturally, to the question:
So here's another masterwork, spiked because of-- well, I can't pretend to read the mind of an editor. Editorial Page Editor Tony Fins provides us with a window into his thinking with the following observation:
"Ok, I'd rather not speculate about what Rush Limbaugh is doing in front of that Ann Coulter poster. So, I'll pretend that he's simply in line to buy Coulter's book. Or in line to buy Viagra. Or in line to buy both.
After I saw this cartoon, I thought about issuing a decree requiring Chan to draw folks' hands where we can see them. But that would have made this cartoon even more unbearable."
Frankly, I hadn't even thought about the hand issue until Tony brought it to my attention. I offered to draw the hands exposed, but the psychological damage had already been done. It got published in the circular file. What do you think? Does it flunk the "family values" test?
