'It's not funny'

The cartoon by Kevin Siers in the Jan. 18 Bee exhibits an absolute lack of class.

A scowling Condoleezza Rice, holding a newspaper with the headline "Barbara Boxer Rips Childless Condi," while at the same time holding the hand of a child who is obviously a miniature George W. Bush, with the donkey ears (obviously to signify his stupidity), does nothing to maintain civility in our political discourse.

By running it, you show your political bias. You show your willingness to take a cheap shot at the expense of the president and secretary of state of our country. It's not funny. Not only that, I have absolutely no idea what the point of the cartoon is.

It's nothing but a put-down -- and a tasteless one at that.
