6. Actually it is a rather stinging self indictment of Ted Ralls


Ralls is a tasteless cartoonist who frequently includes significant factual errors in his lambasting of the left.

He was for the resignation/impeachment of President Obama and against his re election.

He hates the Democrats as much as he hates the Republicans and frequently complains of their hypocrisy which is ironic because

HE had no problems appearing on Hannity and Colmes and KFI (America's largest right wing radio broadcast station) and picking up a big fat check.

Eventually the Village Voice and other left publications dropped him because of his careless approach to things like facts and his bigoted slurs.

7. Yes it is, grantcart.

When I'm reading toons online I don't bother looking him up -- unless n2doc has him in his own lineup, because i read everything by n2doc!

11. True, Ralls is insufficiently PC

but he has a point, even if you prefer not to see it.

13. The point is rather ironic


Ralls has dirty dirty hands by taking money from Fox and KFI.

He has a deep hatred of the President.

He is a fucking liar about 20% of the time, but for many as long as he is trying to stick in the eye of our leaders he must be golden.

The fact is that very liberal publications who know him very well no longer publish him.

15. Actually, it raises my opinion of Rall.

I remember a previous thread in which you unburdened yourself of your antipathy toward Rall, saying he wasn't funny. I like his work while usually finding him more pointed than funny. This toon of his was an exception -- it made me laugh out loud.

16. Ted Rall is not simply filled with hatred for the Democratic Party he tries to make money off of it


by pimping himself to conservative media.

He becomes the 'authority' for Hannity when Hannity wants to show how President Obama is despised by the left.

As far as I can tell Ted Rall is the first person who, days after Inauguration in 2009, called for the President to be removed from office.

He is the left wing version of a birther trying to undermine the legitimacy of the President, all while picking up a check from the right wing media who share his goals.

Fortunately virtually all of the medial on the left got tired of his loose use of facts in his cartoons and he is no longer commercially viable.

I do agree with you that his cartoons rarely are funny its just that in making his points he usually doesn't have the facts to back it up.

The real humor in this is that Ted Rall is accusing the Democratic Party in selling out when he is the 'leftist on call' for reactionaries when they want someone to spout off about how evil President Obama is, something he does gladly for a paycheck.

3. The Rall bashers should be here by lunch time

The Dem party apparatchik is lucky their base

1. Is not dying off, and
2. Is willing to go to the polls in exchange for a few crumbs, and get punched in the face on workers rights, health care, perpetual war, unwarranted incarceration, environmental issues, Don Siegelmann, corporatization of public schools, failure to enact some gun control, pot prosecutions, and Reganomics. I wonder how long the party can piss on its rank-and-file and remain viable.

17. Most of the bashers are from the West Coast and know him well


from his time with KFI radio where he would pick up a paycheck on the largest conservative hate radio station in the country.

So we are well familiar with him, you just have to give us time differential because of the time zones.

Ted Rall is not part of the rank and file for those not familiar with Ted Rall here he is on May 29, 2009 just a few days after inauguration



Obama is cute. He is charming. But there is something rotten inside him. Unlike the Republicans who backed George W. Bush, I won’t follow a terrible leader just because I voted for him. Obama has revealed himself. He is a monster, and he should remove himself from power.

. . .

In practice, Obama wants to let government goons snatch you, me and anyone else they deem annoying off the street..




Hannity loved him and paid him well.

Why in the world would anyone want to bash such a wonderful loser like Ted Rall?
