Ted Rall - disgusting

At least MSNBC had the decency to pull the cartoon. But they should take the next step and stop providing a forum for the garbage this fool spews. It's clear that people like him hate America, have no appreciation for the courage and sacrifice of our soldiers, and make a mockery of American patriotism in general.

I can't believe that that would even be published.

There's disrespectful, there's cruel, and then there is this cartoon.

Rall deserves a serious reprimand from his employers.

His superiors deserve reprimands too. No way should that cartoon have been approved. National organizations of esteem should not run items as disrespectful towards a deceased person as this. Especially so soon after their passing.

It was for the rights of people like Ted Rall that Pat was fighting. However, this is just tasteless. :-P

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

That's disgusting. It doesn't matter if you diagree with the war or not. Those soldiers are fighting for our country and we need to support them. This guy should be blackballed or beaten in an alley. Personlly, I hope he gets both.

i personally dont agree with the war in Iraq but the Tillman part is just taking it a lil bit too far :-t

Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)

The last part was insulting, no need to talk about about dead people. I wish idealistic people like Pat Tillman who acted purely of love for his country wouldnt get killed in this Bush´s BS war

I'm all for the first amendment, but what possessed someone to actually publish/print this crap. I've read some bad social commentary pieces, but this one takes the cake... :-P
