Rick Perry, The Republican Governor or Texas is demanding that the California paper, The Sacramento Bee fire their editorial cartoonist, Jack Ohman over his cartoon mocking Governor Good Hair for the lax enforcement of regulations which created the conditions which led to the disasterous fertilizer plant explosion last week in West, Texas. He claims it insults the victims of the disaster his policies enabled.
Texas Lt. Governor Dewhurst has publicly called for Ohman to be fired, saying his cartoon mocked the victims of the West fertilizer plant explosion.
But the California newspaper appears to have no plans to apologize or fire their cartoonist.
Stuart Leavenworth, the editorial page editor of The Sacramento Bee, said the cartoon illustrated Perry’s “disregard for worker safety, and his attempts to market Texas as a place where industries can thrive with few regulations.”
This is the typical way these jerks deal with criticism. It's too damn painful and bothersome to deal with reality, so just deflect the blame. He blames the cartoonist for the victims his own policies created. I would say that this cartoon truly pins the tail on the jack ass!
