That damned Straw Ahmadinejad

What's Mallard raving about today?

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Barack Obama.

Eeek! A scary cartoon straw man says he likes Barack Obama! What more proof do I need? Better vote for John McCain!

And, predictably, Ahmedinejad is another one of Bruce "offensive stereotypes? Moi?" Tinshley's more off-color images. It's the usual sharp-nosed, scruffy-bearded, diabolically grinning Evil Arab*, rather than anything terribly to close to what the guy actually looks like. Hell, if Tinz draws Jon Stewart like something out of Jud Suss, why should we expect anything more?

* Yes, I'm aware that Iranians aren't Arabs. But I'm also sure that Tinshley isn't.

Always good to shore up the key Marx Brothers demographic, although a better caricature would include the cigar and the duck hanging from the ceiling. Hey, I got a good idea about the latter...

I honestly think people are more afraid of Fidel than Ahmedinijad even though Castro is out of leadership. That is his demographic

GeoX said...

See? Things like this are why I refuse to give Tinsley credit for his occasional less offensive efforts. He's a diseased piece of shit.

(man, that postmodernism idea sure didn't last long, did it?)

You've also got to admire (no, wait, that's the wrong word...I think I mean "abhor") the way that Tinsley is castigating Obama for being offensive to Muslims while simultaneously BEING OFFENSIVE TO MUSLIMS with this caricature (which, to go along with dlauthor's remarks, can hardly be called a "caricature" because it doesn't even resemble an exaggerated version of Ahmedinejad's features).

Actually, it kind of looks like Ray Stevens to me.

Celia said...

Erich, I was about to say that. Essentially, it's okay for him to be anti-Islam, but not Obama. Well, it's probably not okay for Obama to do anything in Tinsley's eyes.

Of course, if Obama had let those Muslim women sit behind him, all the talking heads would go "See? This PROVES that B. Hussein Obama is a radical Muslim terrorist!"

exanonymous said...

And who exactly has made the political climate so sensitive that Obama was pushed into the no-win corner?

Who likes to call him B. Hussein Obama? Guess we'll all vote for J. Sidney McCain now, can't trust Mr. Hussein-Obama, he either is or is not for or against muslims and we all know that is BAD.

I think it's pretty hilarious that Obama thinks he can talk Ahmadinejad down. It really shows some ignorance of there culture. I just read a really good article,Should The President of the United States Talk to Ahmadinejad? , that does a pretty good job explaining why this probably wouldn't have great results.

I think it's pretty hilarious that JaaJoe thinks he can post links to his own website without people noticing. It really shows some ignorance of the Internet. He just wrote a really lame piece of right-wing propaganda, Should The President of the United States Talk to Ahmadinejad? , which does a great job of convincing mouth-breathing jyxpv-heads that OH NOES TEH ISLAMZ R EBIL BY DEFINITION.

Fixed that for you.

Another irony is that a recent poll shows that Ahmedinejad is actually more highly respected internationally than is Bush. I'd have to agree.

I know that chances are that noone would read this, but it looks like if ahmedinejad is getting a blowjob.
