Joe Gandelman has a post about a campaign flyer that was written in response to an AP article published in Forbes. It would appear that Gandelman wrote the entire post based on that article. And I think he got sucker-punched by the AP's manufactured controversy. After reading his take, I looked at the actual fliers over at Captain Ed's place and read what James Joyner had to say about it, too. The cartoon in question is not offensive or stereotypical and is actually a fairly accurate rendering of the actual person. That's it's also juvenile and a pretty lame piece of campaign literature is also quite evident.
I think Gandelman got this one wrong and compounded it by publishing much more offensive old cartoons. I do not think Gandelman did it on purpose at all. I just think he got taken by the AP this time.
