Just be sure to hold YOURSELF to the same standards you would hold any other race to (being careful not to say or do anything that may or may not be able to be connected to racism by somebody, that means no white people have no butts jokes) otherwise you would be a hypocrite.

Finally, the cartoon is a commentary on a very bad piece of political legislation, not on any particular politician. I find it very interesting that nobody on this thread has made any attempt to defend the stimulus bill. I guess that it is so obviously a bad bill, that nobody wants to try to defend it.
