A Story That May Knock Todd Goldman Out Of the Headlines For Awhile

Chris Muir is the creator of the webcomic Day By Day, which I think has been described as a "conservative Doonesbury".

His most recent comic puts Hillary Clinton in blackface.

I don't think I can add anything to this take from the blog Pandagon: "Um... really?" Well, except, this cartoon is ridiculously tasteless and I can't see how it's not racist. I wonder how Muir's three newspaper clients (Hemingford Ledger, Knoxville News-Sentinel, North County Times) will react to this?
