Today Tucson congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) cast her first vote since she was critically injured in a January shooting. You'll recall that in the weeks that followed, the media bemoaned the incivility -- supposedly predominantly conservative in nature -- of the political debate which had allegedly created a climate of hate. But there appears to to be no firestorm over how, just last week, Arizona Daily Star cartoonist David Fitzsimmons fantasized about President Obama sending a SEAL team to assassinate Tea Party-friendly House Republicans.

This, I think, would warrant a quaint visit by the secret service. Anyone have any friends in high places?
Liberal Facism 101.
When I looked at and read the cartoon I thought it made Obama to look like a power hungry dictator wanna be surrounded by equally power hungry buffoons.
PING Az Red Star is Vile and David Fitz is worse.
Well hell, Biden called them Terrorists after all. I guess the “new civility” only cuts one way...
Fitz was the first to blame Republicans for the Giffords shooting on national TV within minutes of the news breaking. He should have been fired right there and then.
What has Sheriff dipstick ( Dupnik) said?
When I am in charge, this idjit will be cleaning out my cat’s litter box.
Yo yo yo, Fitz, draw me a cartoon about cat turds. Make it funnier than the one you did on the Tea Party reps. That one sucked major donkey dongs.
I thought Arizona was the land of squinty-eyed lightning-fast gunslingers, tough cowpokes, and Wyatt Earp. Since when did it become a hotbed of Communism? What the **** HAPPENED to you people???;)
Why my best friend is a Secret Service Agent.
Arizona got Californicated.
Besides the obvious, it’s a horrible insult to the Navy SEALS.
luckily I stopped there..didn't do the visualization or they would have come and got me too.../s
The Libs really seem to be stomping their feet like two year olds, goading their parents for a reaction. Unfortunately, the better analogy is ne’er do wells teasing the neighborhood dog who is limited by a chain in the ground, standing just outside of the limits of the chain....and then, one day, unbeknownst to the ruffians, the owner put a new, longer chain on the dog....

After seeing the cartoon at the link, it seems to me that the cartoonist is mocking Biden’s comparison of the Tea Party to “terrorists”.
A bunch of D$%^ Yankee’s moved in.

I gave the cartoon a second consideration after reading your take- but then I saw this from the same cartoonist, today:
