Following are my top 5 favorite political cartoons for the week. We begin with one on our issue by Michael Ramirez at Townhall.com, satirizing President Obama's recess appointment of Donald Berwick to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. A one-man death panel, Berwick stated last year, "The decision is not whether or not we will ration care. The decision is whether we will ration with our eyes open."...

The graphic photo that silenced a pro-abort

I reported yesterday on the uproar created among congregants at a self-identified pro-life church when pro-life activists protested there this past Sunday, holding signs with graphic photos of aborted babies.

Well, sometimes a graphic photo can have the opposite impact, as I discovered last week.

Backstory: During the 2008 presidential election season I posted several political cartoons that spotlighted Barack Obama's opposition to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act as state senator, including this one (click to enlarge)....

Note for future reference I never wrote "LOL" about the photo, nor did any commenters as far as I can tell.

UPDATE, 6:06p: "Casket" made it into the top 3! Just aired. The 2 other top finalists were "Underdog" and "House Rules." Congrats, Mosaic!

8:31a: Tim Tebow's pro-life ad may not be the only one riling secular liberals during today's Super Bowl. We may also see an ad made by Mosaic Church in Pasadena, CA. It'll be for Doritos, and it won't be overtly Christian, but still - yet another sign Christians are daring to engage in pop culture, oh no!

Last autumn Doritos sponsored a Super Bowl ad contest, and by popular vote the Mosaic Church's "Casket" ad is now 1 of 6 finalists.

All 6 have already won $25k. But the top 3 vote getters, which are being kept secret, will air during the game today. And they each have a chance to win $1 million, $600k, or $400k, if ranked the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd most popular Super Bowl ad according to USA Today's Ad Meter.

Many members of Mosaic work in the film industry, and the church entered the Doritos contest to show Christians - shock - can be funny and relevant. Here's "Casket":

And here are the other 5 competing ads. Which are your top 3 favorites? Mine are, in order, "Kids these days," "Casket," and "House Rules."...

The axing of Rush Limbaugh as one of the investors purchasing the St. Louis Rams is certainly not funny. It has serious ramifications as another hypocritical but effective liberal attempt to marginalize conservatives for our beliefs. Wrote sports columnist David Moulton at Naples.com:

[I]t's the hypocrisy that burns me. We've got players in this league who allegedly have killed people and others who have been accused of obstructing while others did the killing. We've got members of the media covering this league who have called the President of the United States "a fascist."...

rush fergie.jpg

The Miami Dolphins new owner, Stephen Ross, may bring on board as a minority owner the singer Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas. Fergie has a solo song called London Bridge. In it the S word is used 2 dozen times, the F word is used a handful and the lyrics are at times sexually explicit. The song ends with Fergie saying ...

Shi**in on the world. F*** you bit**es.

And Rush Limbaugh can't be a small part of this league?

by Dana Summers at Townhall.com...

cartoon 10-18 dana summers gocomics 10-17 rush isnt the kind of person we want involved in nfl.gif

Added Jarrett Skorup at the Washington Examiner:

But maybe the NFL is right; maybe they just want to avoid people who make controversial statements.

Uh...except when they don't.

Apparently, liberal talk show host Keith Olbermann isn't too controversial for them: He does NBC's Football Night in America. A guy not shy to controversy.

Oh, and what about the new partial-owner of the Miami Dolphins? That would be Stacy Ferguson, better known as "Fergie" of the Black Eyed Peas. She was voted in on Tuesday without a single peep of opposition. Controversy? Divisive? Try:

"I have had lesbian experiences in the past. I won't say how many men I've had sex with - but I am a very sexual person."

or

"A war is goin' on but the reasons undercover. "The truth is kept secret, it's swept under the rug."

or even in song

I'ma get get get get you drunk. Get you love drunk off my hump. My hump my hump my hump my hump my hump My hump my hump my hump my lovely little lumps

Nope, not a whiff of controversy in there at all.

"We're held to a higher standard here," Commissioner Roger Goddell said.

Right.

by Glenn Foden at Townhall.com...

cartoon 10-18 glenn foden left media explains why rush shouldnt own.jpg

Wrote Rush himself in an October 16 Wall Street Journal op ed:

Not to be outdone, Jesse Jackson, whose history includes anti-Semitic speech (in 1984 he referred to Jews as "Hymies" and to NYC as "Hymietown" in a Washington Post interview) chimed in. He found me unfit to be associated with the NFL. I was too divisive and worse. I was accused of once supporting slavery and having praised Martin Luther King Jr.'s murderer, James Earl Ray....

rush ap.jpg

Numerous sportswriters, CNN, MSNBC, among others, falsely attributed to me statements I had never made. Their sources, as best I can tell, were Wikipedia and each other. But the Wikipedia post was based on a fabrication printed in a book that also lacked any citation to an actual source.

I never said I supported slavery and I never praised James Earl Ray. How sick would that be? Just as sick as those who would use such outrageous slanders against me or anyone else who never even thought such things....

[T]his spectacle is bigger than I am on several levels. There is a contempt in the news business, including the sportswriter community, for conservatives that reflects the blind hatred espoused by Messrs. Sharpton and Jackson. "Racism" is too often their sledgehammer. And it is being used to try to keep citizens who don't share the left's agenda from participating in the full array of opportunities this nation otherwise affords each of us. It was on display many years ago in an effort to smear Clarence Thomas with racist stereotypes and keep him off the Supreme Court. More recently, it was employed against patriotic citizens who attended town-hall meetings and tea-party protests.

These intimidation tactics are working and spreading, and they are a cancer on our society.

Yes, here's some of that cancer, from liberal political cartoonists this week.

Sunday funnies

by Lisa Benson of Slate, this cartoon is painful, really, when realizing real people in real wheelchairs will be sacrificed if universal health care prevails. (Actually, they already are as pro-euthanasia/pro-suicide thinking takes hold in America.) And, of course, there are also the babies...

Today's Sunday funnies are actually going to be funny, not political cartoons with zing but just cute.

First up is the hysterical "I love Jesus but I drink a little" video - Ellen speaking on the phone with 88-year-old Gladys from TX:

Next up is the equally hysterical "Tithe rap" video (that can be watched in HD by clicking under lower right corner of video here), new spin on an old teaching...

This continued spin that Obama is not as bad on abortion as he really is will be spin we can turn back on all of them, including Obama's "religious" supporters like Doug Kmiec, when Obama tries to enact the radical pro-abortion policies he has promised the abortion industry he will.

First, don't forget to pray for pastors across America who are participating in the Alliance Defense Fund's Pulpit Freedom Sunday today, which I wrote about previously here and here.

adf logo 2.jpgThis is a long-planned project by ADF for pastors in a coordinated effort on September 28, 2008, to defy the IRS's gag rule dating back to 1954 disallowing them and churches from taking political stands. At least 50 pastors across the nation are purposefully doing just that today from the pulpit, such as endorsing a political candidate. All pastors will submit transcripts and video/audiotapes of their sermons to the IRS. The hope is to invoke action by the IRS, get this into court, and overturn this 54 year old First Amendment violation. Go pastors! See ADF video on the constitutional foundation for this project here.

Moving on, the political cartoons this week continued to focus on the Wall Street bailout, so I found none on our issue. But here was one about the aforementioned by Nate Beeler at Townhall.com that made me laugh...

Most political cartoonists this week focused on Wall Street woes.

But here's one by Gary Varvel that encapsulates what will come to be known as the Wild West "news" reporting of the 2008 presidential campaign - gossip and rumors that careless, lazy, or unscrupulous bloggers post that careless, lazy, or unscrupulous journalists broadcast...

With all the hoopla this week on media satire and bias, it's not surprising political cartoonists took aim at their own, with no ink left for our issue.

I'm posting what I thought were the funniest on those 2 topics, throwing in a bonus I'm connecting to this thread under the label, "media gaffe," as in unintentionally whispering into a hot mic.

MSM political cartoons often reveal ideological hypocrisy from 1 to the next.

This week's offer many examples, but I'll focus on just 1 left-brained schizophrenic split.

The 1st cartoon notes how MSM (correctly yet gleefully) portrays the TX FDLS polygamist sect as raping underage girls in the name of God.

by Nick Anderson for the Houston Chronicle...

cartoon 4-29b.gif

Compare that to cartoons 2 and 3, which turn a blind eye to a KS Planned Parenthood abortion mill that has been alleged to cover up rapes of underage girls by aborting them without reporting the abuse to authorities.

The Kansas City Star cartoonist goes so far as to portray PP as doing the work of God with KS DA Phill Kline as a Draconian-Frankensteinian figure after it, and then portrays Kline as Hannibal Lecter being restrained by the rule of law...

I've also decided Glenn McCoy is my favorite political cartoonist. As I peruse the funnies each week for this post, I'm always drawn to his as either very funny or very baaad. I'd likely post McCoy every Sunday but choose others for diversity's sake. See 2 of McCoy's zingers this week on page 2.
