Creepy Tribune Cartoonist Asks ...
Who Would Win in a Fight:
Abe Lincoln or the Grim Reaper?

The Chicago Tribune creepy cartoonist is back, with more trademark corn on the macabre. This time the creepy cartoonist has Illinois's death penalty in his crosshairs:

Chicago Tribune, 01/10/2011
One would expect a hairtrigger 2nd Amendment proponent like the creepy cartoonist to favor a death penalty. Not so, apparently. Your LakeCountyEye speculates that the creepy cartoonist takes his moral instruction from the Vatican. This may also explain all the Hieronymus-Bosch imagery in his drawings. This drawing in particular depicts a Lincolnesque figure banishing the death penalty from Illinois. However the actual law abolishing the death penalty is not a Republican or even a bi-partisan bill. The bill now sitting on the Governor's desk is mostly the work of the Democrats. The Chicago Tribune creepy cartoonist will point his finger at the Springfield Democrats when they pass legislation he doesn't like. But when the Democrats pass a law that he favors, the creepy cartoonist praises the people of Illinois. Consistency must be the hobgoblin of little minds?
