Hey, were you wondering who the worst political cartoonist in the United States is? We have an answer! It's California-based syndicated cartoonist Gordon Campbell, who took a break from his recent joke-free cartoons about how we are now a nation of communists because of the bailout bill to draw a very special cartoon in which he just colored noted traitor Benedict Arnold black and called him Colin Powell. That is the whole of this cartoon, a portrait of the man who betrayed George Washington and this young nation, in blackface, with white flags, and the utterly insane caption "Benedict Powell... Race Patriot." What does that mean? Let's allow Campbell to explain, in his own words:
"No sane person would question his patriotism toward the United States or even the Constitution and the principles of democracy," Campbell said about Powell [accurately diagnosing his own mental illness in the process -ed]. "But his support of such things as affirmative action and Roe v. Wade placed him too left of center for the bulk of the GOP electorate."So. Supporting affirmative action is just like being a literal traitor, which is what retired general Colin Powell is, for supporting a candidate who isn't in his political party.
Still, Campbell believes through his cartoon that race is a deciding factor in Powell's endorsement, having rendered Benedict Arnold with dark skin, and captioning the cartoon "Benedict Powell - Race Patriot." "The only reasonable explanation for such a public political "about-face" in the midst of this important election is that Colin Powell, perhaps understandably, wishes to see someone who looks like himself in the White House," Campbell said. "It's my opinion that General Powell has based his endorsement of Barack Obama on the color of his skin, not his qualifications, his experience or the content of his character."See? Now you understand the reasonable and intriguing point this cartoonist made, when he drew Benedict Arnold in blackface and called him Colin Powell, because Powell endorsed a Democrat, who is black. The end.
