“Post-Racial Polling Place”, “Liberal Disappointment” and “Racial Divide” cartoons

from Chip Bok: It began this week with the NAACP accusing the tea party of harboring racists.  The tea party, such as it is organized, excommunicated a California member for a post mocking the NAACP in a racial way.  Seemingly in exchange, the NAACP got an agriculture department employee fired for racial comments posted on Breitbart.  Except, when taken in there full context, she was making a point against racism.  Tea Party types say all the racism talk is an attempt to distract from the butt kicking Democrats are taking in the polls due to the Obama agenda.  But that would require a conspiracy - a cabal. Oh wait, it turns out there actually was a sort of media cabal-  on a list serve called Journolist.  And an ambition of one of its members, Spencer Ackerman, was to create a diversion to  get the Jeremiah Wright story off the front page.  The diversion?  Random accusations of racism.
