Remember the firestorm of media controversy that erupted with the publication of the New Yorker's recent cover story on Barack Obama?
Newsbusters' Tom Blumer noted a Rolling Stone cartoon that is arguably more tasteless (less tasteful?) depicting McCain's political opponents -- with decidedly Asian features -- torturing him NVA-style.
The cartoon accompanied a ridiculously partisan Matt Taibbi commentary.
Full Metal McCain - Haunted by the ghosts of Vietnam, the one-time maverick has transformed himself into just another liberal-bashing fearmonger
...here in the Big Easy, John McCain has chosen this moment to mount his first general-election attack against the Great Satanic Liberal Enemy — who, as luck would have it, turns out to be a Negro intellectual from Harvard who's never served in the military. And this is supposed to be a bad year for Republicans?...
No media outcry. No carping or complaining from the candidate. Just another day at the office for the GOP.
