Ted Rall's Primitive Period? How Can You Tell?

Ted Rall is selling one of his cartoon books online:

ALL THE RULES HAVE CHANGED (Rip Off Press, 1995, 128 pp.) was my second collection of cartoons. It compiled work from the earliest days of my syndication with San Francisco Chronicle Features, 1992-1995, as well as some weird side projects and a few really, really primitive toons from the mid-1980s while I was developing my current drawing style.

Rall's one of the most offensive cartoonists out there, but the part that amused me is that he thinks his style has developed. He has ZERO artistic ability, and I don't say that because I hate his politics. I don't like Tom Toles either, but nobody would deny that he can draw quite well.
Sudden Respect, Defined

I mentioned the other day that Pat Buchanan was getting "sudden respect". This is something I've commented about on Usenet in the past. "Sudden respect" is what Republicans get from the media when they criticize other Republicans. Buchanan is a classic example of this. Back when he was a garden variety Republican, the left frequently characterized him as a fascist, neo-Nazi. But magically, when Buchanan criticizes President Bush, he transforms into a "true conservative".

Just saw the Bush ads. I thought Safer, Stronger (the one with no speaking other than the President saying he approved of the ad) was the most effective. "Lead" was great as well, but did it seem that Bush was exaggerating the Southern drawl?
The left likes to claim that TRUE conservatives (Pat Buchanan getting sudden respect) are turning away from Bush in droves. CBS News has a new poll out that certainly indicates it's not true. Republicans approve of the job Bush is doing by a margin of 86% to 9%. Democrats are 21% favorable, 71% unfavorable.

Eric Alterman is touting John McCain for vice president.... on the Democratic ticket. This is, of course, just plain silly. McCain is not a Democrat, no matter how much people like to fantasize that he is. He got a 20 rating in 2002 from the liberal Americans for Democratic Action; Zell Miller, whom the lefties loathe, received a 30. He's not even the most liberal Republican; Lincoln Chaffee got a 45 in that year.

Not How the Game is Played

Mediocre article in the American Spectator criticizing Kerry for his support of Aristide. While Kerry's support of Aristide is of course interesting in light of what a thug the latter became, this bit made me swallow my gum:

Aristide was a known inciter of "necklacing," the practice of throwing flaming tires around opponents' heads.

While this sounds like a somewhat interesting sport, one would suppose it would be quite challenging and dangerous to the thrower as well as the throwee. Of course the actual sport is a little less, err, sporting:

Necklacing refers to throwing a rubber tire over a victim’s neck, dousing it with gasoline and igniting it thus burning the victim to death.

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
