UPDATE — Rome, GA cartoonist's constructive contribution to the Sandra Fluke controversy

UPDATE — John Bailey of the Rome News-Tribune emailed (and commented below) to clarify that the cartoon was not published in their paper — "Our editorial department killed it," he explained — but was published elsewhere. The RNT does frequently print Rome resident Mike Lester's work.


Here's a cartoon that was published in the Rome News-Tribune. Everyone reacted so well to Rush Limbaugh's suggestion that Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke is a slut for advocating for government funded contraception, that cartoonist Mike Lester thought he'd add to the dialogue by reiterating what a whore Fluke is. And, look!, President Obama is her stereotypical, blaxploitation, Huggy Bear-style pimp. This is just cutting commentary, folks. Or maybe it's just Lester's funny way of saying, "HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY!" Also, "HAPPY MONTH AFTER BLACK HISTORY MONTH!"


Oh, and you can read a transcript of Sandra Fluke's slutty slut-speak here.

H/T @andishehnouraee and The Daily Beast.
