Danziger backpedaling on racist cartoon?

Jeff Danziger's offensive political cartoon was the subject of much ire across the web over the past few days.

But as of this evening, the cartoon has been removed from his website.

Of course, leave it to me to make sure I've got a copy for your perusal, so you can see that it was, indeed, over the line.

Danziger's been sending out a form letter to anyone who complains about the cartoon, as Tony over at Red Mind in a Blue State found out.

Thanks for your letter.

In fact the idea for the cartoon was suggested to me by a friend who is African-American. It wasn't racist. Nor am I. I have been doing this for nearly thirty years, and any review of my work will prove that no racism attaches. Further, I am a decorated Vietnam veteran who voted for Nixon once, GHW Bush twice and even for Bob Dole. So keep your labels.

Nothing racist about it at all. Just the standard lies told by a political operative, out of her depth, who happens to be African- American. Whenever this administration is in trouble they send out Condi Rice because the press, which is mostly white and male, gives her a far easier treatment than they would a white male.

If the tables were turned, and Rice were a LIBERAL black woman, he wouldn't dare put anything of the sort there.

Yet another double-standard for black conservatives at work. It's OK to toss racist rhetoric at a black conservative, but Katie bar the door if you do the same to a black liberal.

Just damn.
