Two people have given me an email heads-up on the latest Ted Rall offering, one which is extremely insulting to Condoleezza Rice and to black women in general. Originally, I hadn’t planned on giving Rall’s latest “comic” strip the time of day and I’m only changing my mind to point this out: attention is what he’s craving. If negative attention is the only type he can get, he’ll take it. I suspect that he can get little of any other brand.
I briefly viewed Rall’s interview by FoxNew’s Hannity and Colmes some weeks back. Infuriating is the nicest word I can think of to describe him. However, there was something more that I observed about his demeanor: he loved Alan Colmes’ polite disapproval and seemed to thrive on Sean Hannity’s barely contained vitriol. Rall wants your hate, folks. He’s smoking it, snorting it, shooting it up
Frankly, I think that one has to respect another’s thinking process in order to hate or revile that person. Ted Rall is too busy feeding his fix to develop a thinking process. And, no, he gets no link from me. His work can be found easily enough.
