cartoon shows bin Laden wearing “Obama 2008” button

A sidebar on the conservative website features a cartoon of a bearded man with a rifle -- presumably Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden -- wearing a button that reads “Obama 2008.” In the image, the man is smiling and giving a thumbs-up. As of April 17, the sidebar appears aside every column on the website and invites visitors to “Click Here” for “More Funnies.” The image is linked to's "The Funnies," a collection of political cartoons by “ Cartoonists.”

Media Matters for America has documented numerous examples of media figures' making reference to Sen. Barack Obama's (D-IL) name and its similarity to “Osama.”
