The above Tim Dolighan cartoon appeared in the St. Catharines Standard editorial page on Feb.4, 2009.
Hey, look...isn't that FUNNEEE... Stephen Harper's been kicked in the groin! Ha ha ha ... oh, he deserved that!! I mean, gosh, he tried to reallocate arts subsidies!! Why, that simply begs for violent retribution!
Meanwhile, Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty cuts $50 million in nurse funding from his already under-funded health-care monopoly, and there are NO cartoons in the St. Catharines Standard showing Liberal Dalton McGuinty being kicked in the balls, by anyone!!
No cartoons of health care monopolist MPP Jim Bradley being booted in the scrotum.
Nothing of health minister David Caplan getting hoofed in the nuts.
Nothing of Michael Ignatieff being bashed in the family jewels.
Not even any cartoons of mayor Brian McMullan being assaulted.
I guess this stuff is only funny if it's a conservative being attacked.
Well done, Sun Media. Good choice, Standard.
Next thing you know, the St. Catharines Federal Liberal Riding Association will make jokes about assassinating Canada's Prime Minister.
