SHARE Washington Post finds Tank McNamara cartoon too inappropriate to run

The subscribers and single-day consumers of Tuesday’s

Washington Post were denied a Tank McNamara cartoon when a subplot in the

long-running strip was deemed “inappropriate” by editors.

The three-box offering featured former Vice President Dick

Cheney and NFL commisioner Roger Goddell discussing a hit on recently freed

quarterback Michael Vick. Here’s the hand-drawn prose that caused the trouble.

Goodell: “I have to make a move on Mike Vick.”

Cheney: “Kill him.”

Goodell: “Kill him?!?”

Cheney: “Well, not you personally.”

The syndicator of the script, Universal Press Syndicate,

said they knew of no other cancellations other than the Post’s.

What do we think? Was this over the line? Are you surprised

only one outlet balked at running it?
