Pandering much?

Times editorial cartoons | Sept. 9

I’m sick and tired of seeing absolutely unfair and disrespectful political cartoons in the Times. These unfair right-wing cartoons, pandering to the loony nut job Trump lovers, are not expressions of political positions. They’re unfair hatchet jobs. President Biden inherited the most damaged America anybody alive has ever seen. His handling of the pandemic couldn’t have been any better. There are vaccines available to stop the spread of the worst pandemic in 100 years and just about half the people in this country refuse to take them for political and ideological reasons. These people are the problem in this country. Appealing to them with these cartoons contributes to the problem. Fair political discourse is good. These cartoons are not fair political discourse.

Needed self-reflection

DeSantis lawyers try to dismiss federal school mask case; ruling to come soon | Sept. 9

Gov. Ron DeSantis was wondering why wearing a mask became so political. I guess he has to look in a mirror and realize that he and other politicians of his ilk were pretending to be scientists.

The things politicos say

Governor says he’ll “eliminate all rapists” | Sept. 9

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says he will eliminate all rapists from the streets to save women from having to have abortions? You mean to tell me he has had the means to do this and hadn’t done it already?
