Re "BundyFlops!" (Forum, April 27): I guess this is why they call them political cartoons. Sometimes they can't be taken seriously.

When you look at the substance, Jack Ohman points out that some conservative folks agree with Bundy that the federal land policies can be oppressive and that he was justified in standing up to them. We learned in the '60s and '70s from college professors and liberal students to question authority. So Bundy gets an "A" from the conservatives for questioning authority he sees as oppressive.

On the other hand, those same conservatives give him an "F" when he makes a racist comment. It sounds right to me. Questioning oppressive government is good. Racist comments are bad. No flip-flop here. Just Ohman trying to spin this to give his liberal/establishment friends a much needed campaign issue.
