Crabb is an elitist cartoonist

As per Crabb’s cartoon on Jan. 24 (“If Noah had been a Republican”), we can now see that the only difference between Crabb and Michael Moore is that Crabb lives in Nevada County. Too bad; I had always considered Crabb to be fair and balanced.

So now all Republicans are “Rich Privileged Elitists”? Perhaps the “elitist” label should be stamped on our local cartoonist. Also, his “License to Cartoon” should be changed to read “License to Clown!”

Maybe the cartoon was the result of a major brain trepidation. Then again, maybe not. Hate speech is quite prevalent these days. I thought Crabb was above it. Guess not. Too bad!
