Ted Rall has become a popular boogeyman of the right of late, drawing fire on a regular basis for good and brave cartoons that speak truth to power. This is not one of them. It’s a cheap shot at a dead man which wrongly pins on him the blame for the crimes of a bunch of safe, wealthy, powerful men who’d like nothing better than to see the anti-war movement taking potshots at soldiers rather than the people who deploy them. This is not a time when the left can afford to be vengeful – and certainly not a time at which we can afford to blame the wrong targets.
