Rall, author of "Wake Up, You're Liberal: How We Can Take America Back from the Right," continued his analysis of the Reagan Cult, pointing out the fallacy of the myth that Reagan "won" the Cold War and describing Reagan and Bush as "Christianist" or the "radical right equivalent of Islamist" in the replay of the Crusades, which is of course, the so-called War on Terrorism and Iraq.
Rall's website (www.rall.com) includes his blog, while his cartoons are syndicated in about 140 publications.
Rall's cartoon about the hapless NFL star Pat Tillman who died in a "friendly fire" incident in Afghanistan invited death threats and hate mail from the Naive American Flag Waving Crowd.
"Imagine what would happen when Clinton dies, and they gloss over the fact that he lied under oath," said Rall. "I bet there will be conservative writers there to point that out and say something similar to what I said. And I think it is completely appropriate."
"This is journalism, and it is a job, and we are here to tell the truth," Rall concluded.
