It's no secret that we here at Wizbang loathe Ted Rall. He's a subliterate, untalented, unmitigated, blithering, raving, unfunny, vile, noxious, scrawler who manges to make up for his utter lack of redeeming qualities by his sheer venom and hatred, which finds a willing audience of deranged Bush-haters, rabid leftists, and other sociopaths. And those are his good points.
Kevin called him out over one particularly noxious "Rallism" (I can't bring myself to call it a "cartoon," as that would be an insult to cartoonists everywhere) a little over a year ago, and we've pretty much left him alone. With his patented defense mechanism of spewing as much foulness as possible, it's tough to smack him around without getting yourself dirty as well.
But one of his latest cartoons just can't be overlooked. No, not this one, where he manages to make Michael Moore look almost svelte, but another one.
Before I show it, put down any beverages, take an extra dose of high-blood pressure medication you might be on, and remove any easily-breakable objects (glasses, artwork, lights, small children, pets) from ready grasp.
Ready? Here it is.
If you'd like to tell Ted how much you admire his style, his wit, his insight, his remarkable gifts, feel free to e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org. That's email@example.com, in case you missed it. Or you can just click here. He has some guidelines you might want to read first, to be sure you don't get screened out before reaching him. You could also go to his blog, but for some reason he doesn't accept comments.
One last time, folks: to show your appreciation and respect for Ted Rall, that's firstname.lastname@example.org.
