    Nice comment on how some Americans react to violence.

    Seriously, what’s the message or intent of this cartoon? Violence is glorified in the media? TV in general is a bad influence? Or a few men are turned on by violent women? The message is not self evident here.

    jrmerm: In the face of something unspeakably horrific and inhumane, some people see only a sexual turn-on. It’s like the warning that pictures of dead earthquake victims contain “nudity” – only a necrophiliac would find that arousing. Subjective perceptions of reality can be absurdly inappropriate.

    Think David Cronenberg’s adaptation of J. G. Ballard’s Crash, or the thrill I get from Brett Easton Ellis’s American Psycho. You’d understand this mentality if you were a divorced man or a male culturally prone to decapitating women, that is. Hot.

    ^Cap’nJay: “a male culturally prone to decapitating women”, is it? Um, need to tell ya, that’s sick, boy. Get some help.

    Or get a sturdy girlfriend!

    I have to admit I really don’t get this? Please shed some light on your intent, Mr. Rall. I am almost certain there’s a great laugh in there somewhere. ^^

    Maybe you agree with the guy in the cartoon. It’s plain that many millions find violence sexy. Such tastes are played to in our culture. Perhaps you are just pointing that out. Hell, it could be you are saying that MSNBC is being singled out for something all news networks do…? Maybe the wife is just jealous!

    This just keeps getting more and more interesting ………..Jihad chicks?

    I’m not sure how much the Chechens care about Jihad and how much of it is just “I am Inhigobum Monhotoyanov. You killed my father. Prepare to die!”

    Religion and patriotism (or nationalism, if you prefer) are not the only reason for people to kill each others, especially in some societies. Good old fashioned vendetta can also work.

    I don’t understand how anyone doesn’t get this cartoon. You don’t even have to think about it – the point hits you like a ton of bricks in the instant you see it. I think it’s one of Ted’s simplest and most successful efforts to date. Attempts at deep analysis merely fog up something that doesn’t need to be explained.
