This Week's Sneak Peek

I've been seeing a lot of snotty editorial cartoons over the weekend by conservatives griping that President Obama deigned to speak to the racial tensions exacerbated by the George Zimmerman verdict.

Geez. The president speaks eloquently and without a teleprompter about an issue dominating the news, and these guys (who were, I'm sure, equally supportive of the Republicans in Congress meddling in Terri Schiavo's end-of-life care) act like he preempted the Superbowl to weigh in on America's Got Talent. You certainly can't suggest that nobody cares about what the Zimmerman case says about race in America, crime, guns, law enforcement or the American justice system. (My own cartoon about the Zimmerman case has gotten five or six times the number of hits of the average cartoon here.)

Or could it be that Obama's having spoken without a teleprompter busted up one of their primary harping points about him?
