Ted Rall - the Michael Savage of the Left

Ted Rall lives to demonstrate that the right has no monopoly on bigoted idiots who are actually embarrassments to their cause, as the following fine piece of work demonstrates.

As bad as the reference to Condoleeza Rice as a "House Nigga" in need of "Racial Re-education" is (serves her right for thinking even a black woman ought to be free to choose her own politics, right?), the fact is that the whole damn cartoon is an exercise in bad taste. Then again, we've come to expect no better from Ted "Terror Widows" Rall; the real mystery is why the likes of the Washington Post find this mad dog's material worth publishing.
